William Thompson
« on: Friday 09 December 16 19:30 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Can anybody help find a baptism/birth for:
William Thompson born c 1798 in Reading, Berkshire.
He married Jane Minto in Chester-Le-Street, Durham in 1819 and was a papermaker by profession.

He states on every census that he was born in Reading, Berkshire, or Berkshire - but can't find any trace of his baptism.

Thanks

Sue

There are trees online with this family in them-treat with caution of course. There is one that has William's birth date 17th November 1798 Reading-death 25th July 1884 Durham. One has parents as Robert Thompson 1780 and Susannah Bolstridge 1775 , however if these were his parents they were not married until 3rd June 1805. Northumberland.
Regards.
