February 28, 1806

Frederick Thompson, son of John Thompson of the Parish of St. Martin's in the Fields, and Martha, was born February 20, 1805 and baptized this Day, by me. Thos. Stolling?

Note: The date difference of 1805 and 1806 is not a transcription error. He apparently was born in 1805 and christened in 1806. The handwriting is very clear, and the christening recorded is recorded properly as Feb 28, 1806. and the birth year of 1805 is very clearly written.

Parents - John Thompson and Martha Lauga who were married 11 January 1802 in St. Martin's in the Field, Westminster, London, England. Note: There are very, very few Lauga surname entries in the English records. The originates in southern France in the Northern Basque Region. The Southern Basque Region sits in northern Spain.

Married - 1) Mary Ann Sharpe on April 14, 1832 in St. James, Westminster, London, England and 2) Sarah Randall before 1841.

Died - December 7, 1874 in Kensington Town, Kensington District, County of Middlesex, England

Where was Thomas Sr. in the 1861 census? We suspect he was out on his apprenticeship. Our cousin found a Thomas, age 18, living with the John Thompson household in Potters' Bar in 1861 and working as a domestic. Would a confectioner apprentice be considered a domestic? There is an age difference of one year, as ours would have been 19 in April 1861. This would explain, however, how Thomas met Susan, as that Thompson family was right down the road from the Harvey family. According to that 1861 Potters Bar Census, that Thomas was born in Cheshire. We know our Thomas was born in Hammersmith, Middlesex. However, one of the more common mistakes is on birthplaces. Will post more as we get it.

We will continue to post our finds and notes on this page. Most of the discovery progress in this line has been made by John and Carolyn Thompson. A big thanks to them!
