Thompson family
« on: Saturday 23 May 20 04:25 BST (UK) »
Looking for any information for Matthew Thompson who may have been a widower when he married Elizabeth Sands 1823 Norfolk possibly Setch - they had three daughters Priscilla 1825 Mary Ann 1827 (my connection) and Esther 1829 and maybe Ann?   
Priscilla married 1846 William Wardle - South Lynn or Kings Lynn
Mary Ann married 1859 James Henry Weaver Russell - Axbridge Somerset - Mary and JHW Russell came to Australia 1863 and son born Willie Henry Russell - my great grandfather
Looking for any related family to Mary Ann Thompson - I have recently received a photo of her
Also looking for Russell connections as I have a book of unkown people who may be Russell family  ........... Alison

I don't think Ann is your family, the Elizabeth Thompson in Kings Lynn 1851 pauper formerly brewer/publican is the widow of Robert Thompson, brewer on the 1841 census.
They had children John 15, Mary 15, Robert 14, Elizabeth 8 and Ann 4 (as of 1841)

ADDED Joseph Towler/Fowler is living with them in 1841 and 1851
