Thomas Thompson (bap. 14 Apr 1811 in Cransley, Northamptonshire), son of Solomon Thompson Jnr and Maria Willis, was a carpenter like his father.

In 1851, Thomas Thompson (40), Carpenter, was staying as a visitor with his sister, Lucy Smith and her husband in Foleshill, Warwickshire. 

In 1861, Thomas (50) was living alone in Cransley, Northampronshire.

And, in 1871, Thomas (60), was still a carpenter in Broughton

However by 1881, Thomas Thompson (70), carpenter, may have become too old or infirm to work or manage on his own, because he is listed as an inmate at Kettering Union Workhouse, later St Mary's Hospital, Kettering.

It would appear that Thomas Thompson died, in Kettering, in 1886.
