Searching relations of Margaret Thompson 1621-1697.
« on: Thursday 22 March 18 09:28 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
I hope somebody can help me unravel the ancestry of my 9th Great grandmother – Margaret Thompson.
She was born on 8 July 1621 in Cumberland. Married Edward Bardgett on 8 July 1621 in Lazonby, Cumberland and died in January 1697 in Lazonby, Cumberland. She had two children – Kathleen and Richard.
Her father was Ralph Thompson – Born in 1596 in Kirkoswald, Cumberland. He married Mary Watson in about 1620, and they both died (undated) in Cumberland.
Now it gets tricky!
Ralph Thompson’s father was either Robert Thompson (A), born in 1560 in Watton, Herts. He married Elizabeth Harsnett, and died in 1620 in Cheston, Herts.
Or, his father was Sir Ralph (Robert) Thompson (B), born in the same place in the same year, who married Lady Elizabeth Harsnett in 1596 in Hoddesdon, Herts and died in 1620 in Cheston, Herts.
If Robert Thompson (A), his father was Robert Thompson, born 15 Feb 1546, who married Katherine Hill on 24 May 1573. I have no death dates for either.
If Sir Ralph (Robert) Thompson (B), his father was John Thompson, but I have no birth or death dates or marriage details, and no mother.
Looking forward to hearing from anybody. I am at my wits end.
Thank you.
Geoff Deakin.

Curious as to why you think it probable that either of two men born, married and died in Herts would be the father of a child born in Cumberland?

I spellchecked the text, but not the title. Checked the Preview. Everything OK, but just noticed the Heading as I pressed Post!
I hoped nobody would notice!!!!!
WRONG !!!
Thanks for reading it anyway.
Cheers,

Geoff.

First, thanks to Emeltom for correcting my Subject line. Very much appreciated!
Emeltom - I am certain as I can be regarding the Cumberland connection.
Lady Elizabeth Harsnett died in Walton, Cumberland in 1634.
Ralph Thompson died in Cumberland.
Mary Watson was married and died in Cumberland.
Edward Bardgett and Margaret Thompson - both were born, married and died in Cumberland.

Lisajb - You are right - My head is like porridge over these records. Margaret Thompson married Edward Bardgett on her 20th birthday, in 1641.
