John Thompson

~MY ANCESTOR~
He came on the "Elizabeth & Ann" in 1635 at the age of 22 years. According to "In Pursuit of Paradise", p. 345, he returned to England to settle his affairs. It was there that he married Mirable Fitch and they returned to America, settling in Stratford in 1640. (Note: this may be a family legend since records show that he was in Wethersfield in 1636).

His will was written in July of 1678 and his inventory taken in August, 1678. He died at 65 years of age.

Their son, AMBROSE THOMPSON, was my ancestor.
Other children: John Thompson, Jr., Sarah (Thompson) Hurd, Abigail (Thompson) Curtis, Esther (Thompson) Gelpin, Mary Thompson (died young), and Mary (Thompson) Mitchell
