An example of a bronze medal from the London event is shown inset. The 'Hutchison Centenary' related to the 100th anniversary of the beginnings of Hutchison's Flour Mill in Kirkcaldy. In the late 1820s Robert Hutchison had began trading in wheat, barley, oats, flax, butter and flour.
In 1887 David married Isabella Skinner in St Andrews. The 1891 census finds Isabella and two daughters (Maggie and Jessie) in South Street St Andrews with her parents, while David Watson was recorded in Edinburgh as a baker. At some point in the next 10 years the family made their move to Largo Parish. In 1901 they were listed at Church Place, Upper Largo with David described as 'Journeyman Baker' while in 1905 the family were living at Crichton Place in Upper Largo. By 1911 census the family are to be found at Cupar Road Lundin Links, David having set up business at the Keilside Bakery. From then until his death in 1935, aged 67, David Watson was tenant occupier of the Largo Road bakehouse.
