Hi everyone I saw the post recently for information on the Graham family who were in Hexham in the 1790’s.
I am also searching for information on a family member who was living in Hexham between 1851 and until his death, April 1874 – Thomas Collins Thompson (Thomson), who served with the 3rd Battalion Royal Artillery during the Battle of Waterloo and was injured. Thomas was born in the Shetland Islands in 1793 this has been confirmed but can’t find any information for Thomas while living in Hexham, who he married and who all of his children were.
I have information on a son also by the name of Thomas Thompson. I am also looking for any descendants of William Thompson born 1865 in the Hexham area who’s father was Thomas Thompson (either son or grandson) of Thomas Collins Thompson.
hope there is someone who can help me, as Western Australia is a long way to come from to search for this information.
I suggest you contact the Northumberland & Durham Family History Society http://www.ndfhs.org.uk as they are better-geared to answering specific family history queries. Have you checked the censuses for 1851-1911? These are all online and would give information on any family both Thompsons might have had.
