John William Thompson (1815-c1869)

John William Thompson born 15 Oct 1815, christened 14 Dec 1817 at St George in the East, London, England son of William & Ann, Mariner,abode: Sprusom's Court, Sprusom's Island [source: London, England Births & Baptisms 1813-1905 Tower Hamlets St George in the East 1817] He was deceased before his son John William married in 1873 and presumably before the 1871 census.. On his son's birth certificate the mother is named as Harriet Thompson formerly Barber and we deduce that he married Harriot Barber-Thompson (1813-1881+) between 1836-1841. No marriage details can be found - as yet.

They had children including:

In the 1851 census at 29 Lomas Buildings Tower Hamlets resided:

Henry was born on 1 March 1849, and Ann on 23 March 1850 when the family was living at 29 Lomas Buildings, Stepney.
John William Thompson was born on 29 September 1852, when the family was living at 2 Clare Hall Gardens.
