Eldest son of Solomon Thompson Jnr and Maria WillisDaniel Thompson, married Mary Adcock on 25 Oct 1832 at All Saints Church, Pytchley. 

These were a pair of my 3x great-grandparents.

In 1841, Daniel Tompson (the H had been dropped), carpenter, is living in Cransley StreetBroughton, with wife, Mary, daughter Sarah (8) and son George (5). Ten years later, in 1851, the family are still living at the same address, with parents Daniel and Mary, the now 17 year old Sarah has become a dressmaker and George (14) a carpenter, following in the family tradition. The family had also grown to include Benjamin (9), Louisa (6) and Dan (2).
  1. Sarah Elizabeth Thompson baptised 15 Dec 1833
  2. George Thompson baptised 15 Apr 1836 
  3. Benjamin Thompson baptised 3 Oct 1841
  4. Louisa Thompson baptised 15 Dec 1844
  5. Dan Thompson born 12 Oct 1848, baptised 5 Nov 1848
Sarah and George were baptised in Broughton, while Benjamin, Louisa and Dan were all baptised at St Andrews of Cransley, Northamptonshire.

Daniel Thompson, Carpenter and Wheelwright, died, aged 45, on 15 Feb 1854. His effects, under £100, were granted to his widow, Mary Tompson, in 1861. That year, the widowed Mary was living in the household of her son George, who appears to have taken over the family business as a Carpenter employing 2 men and 1 boy, in Broughton. Then in 1871, Mary and younger daughter, Louisa, are living with eldest daughter, Sarah and son-in-law, Daniel Botterill, in Deptford. Benjamin and Dan didn't follow family tradition, became bricklayers and went on a journey, first to London, ending generations of these ancestors staying within a small radius around Kettering

Mary Thompson died, aged 69, and was buried on 15 Oct 1879 at St Andrew's, Broughton.
