Ancestors of George R. Thompson
Information submitted by Ken Thompson.
My Eighth Great Grandfather:
Mathew Thompson m. Sarah Wyatt
Most likely, Mathew and Sarah were married at her home in Caroline County, and within a year or so moved to Louisa County.
Richard Wyatt Thompson m. Mary McGhee
Elizabeth Thompson m. James Thompson McGhee
Sarah Thompson m. Arthur L. Campbell
John Thompson m. Mary "Polly" Gooch
Researchers can check Sarah Wyatt's line back to England. It is likely she has a direct line to Allington Castle, Sir Thomas Wyatt, the Poet who lived in Allington and to King Henry the Eighth. Sir Thomas had a son named "Sir Thomas the Younger". He got involved in a Rebellion against King Henry, was caught and beheaded.

The ancestry report uses 'Ahnentafel' numbering. This means that the numbers for a person's parents will be twice as large as that person's number. For example, if a woman's number is 15, her father will be number 30, and her mother will be 31. Her child will be number 7.
