Mary Ellen Thompson 1810-1872
« on: Saturday 13 February 21 10:01 GMT (UK) »
Born 27.10.1810 Fleet Street London, d. 1872 West Ham
Posting under 'Lancashire' as that is where my grandfather, a descendant, lived.(Born London 1869, d. Llangollen c 1951)

My main printed information on the Thompson/Pritchard line came from N. Spence: would love to reconnect if anyone knows of him.
I have some hand-written notes by Mary Ellen's father Thomas Thompson (b.1777) on births, christenings etc.

DNA results have come up with some links to Australia (George Thompson Pritchard).

Your grandfather's name would help.
Who did Mary Ellen marry?

Hello Heather,

Mary Ellen's parents were Thomas Thompson and Elizabeth Donisthorpe

Mary Ellen Thompson married John Samuel Pritchard in 1833. He was born in Clerkenwell in 1809.I have a note that their son George Thompson Pritchard (whose name pops up in DNA linked to Australia),born Chichester, Sussex 1835,had George Thompson (Anti-slavery MP, Liverpool?) as godfather.

The print-out I have was from N. Spence c 2007.

My grandfather was Frank Thomas Pritchard, b. Islington 1869

Do you know where in Lancashire and when? What information do you have about him in Lancashire and what are the sources?
Have you added the names to "Surname Interests"?

He lived & worked in Liverpool before his retirement. The sources are census data etc and family knowledge.
I was just hoping that a Thompson descendant might see the post and know of my main Thompson source, N. Spence. I've added the surnames to my interests.
