PRYDE of Coatbridge (Lanarkshire) and Boston (Massachusetts - USA)

I'm trying to find out information about the family of John Thomson Pryde. He immigrated to the United States onboard the "S.S. California" in 1923 to New York, settling in Boston, Massachusetts before returning to Scotland. He married his wife Margaret, then returned to the United States onboard the "S.S. Celtic" in 1927. They had at least two children in Massachusetts: John Thomson Jr. (1928), and M. Doris (sometime around 1930). John Thomson Pryde's (Sr.) states his birthplace was Coatbridge, Scotland in both 1923 and 1927. He was a plumber in both records also. His nearest relative in Scotland is given as his father James Pryde, who in 1923 was living at "60A Creswall Street, Coatbridge". I would love to know more information about this family. John Thomson Pryde would have been born about 1898-1899 in Scotland. His wife Margaret was from Ochiltree (East Ayrshire). Could someone see if they can find John Thomson Pryde, or his father James, in the Scottish census records?
Many thanks!
