Thomas Drummond, 1st of Drummonderinoch was born about 1453 in Perthshire, Scotland as the third son of Malcolm DRUMMOND, Of Stobhall And Cargill and Marion MORAY (MURRAY), Of Tullibardine. Thomas was present at the Massacre at Monzievaird Kirk. He rescued one of his Murray cousins from the burning church and saved that Murray's life. The Drummond family were not pleased with Thomas' compassion and ran him out of Scotland. He fled to Ireland where he lived for many years until the Murray's of Tullibardine gained the Earldom of Atholl from the Drummonds and with it control of most of western Perthshire. The Murrays were grateful for Thomas Drummond's earlier compassion and invited him to return to Perthshire from Ireland. They gave him property near Crieff which became known as Drummonderinoch, or Drummond of Ireland. Thomas Drummond married about 1510 to a Daughter of SCOTT Of Monzie. She was born about 1490 in Scotland. They had the following children:
1. Thomas DRUMMOND , 2nd Of Drummonderinoch b: ABT 1510 in Drummonderinoch, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland
2. James DRUMMOND , Of Ward b: ABT 1512 in Drummonderinoch, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland
3. Walter DRUMMOND b: ABT 1515 in Drummonderinoch, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland
4. Gavin DRUMMOND b: ABT 1518 in Drummonderinoch, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland
5. Gilbert DRUMMOND b: ABT 1520 in Drummonderinoch, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.
He was involved in the burning of the Murrays in the church of Monzievaird in 1488 during which he aided the escape of John of Murray of Trowan, one of the entrapped parties, and for which he was afterwards compelled to flee to Ireland in fear of his life. Several years later he returned and received a grant of lands near to Comrie by the thankful Murrays who named it in his honour Drummonderinoch, or "Drummond the Irishman's." Whether true or not he certainly had the rental of the Crown lands of Drummonderinoch by 1498 when he entered into a dipute with William Inglis of Colquhalzie for wongful occupation and for which he had a Letter of Tack on 13 March, 1499.
