Mystery Monday - Thompsons Thompsons Everywhere!
I spent several years following a completely erroneous branch of the Thompson family after confusing two John Thompsons born in the same month, in the same parish. It was very interesting researching Norfolk local history - it's just that no one in our family has ever lived there!
And now I am following the right branch - I hope! - my great-grandfather has got me stumped again. His 1907 marriage certificate shows that John was already, at just 27, a widow.
But I have not been able to find a record for this other marriage or indeed any census record for John in 1901 which might give a clue as to where he was.
Any suggestions anyone?
