Solomon Thompson and Ann Burr

Solomon Thompson (48) widower, builder, son of Solomon Thompson Jnr and Maria Willis, married Ann Burr (39), widow, on 14 Aug 1871, at the St Jude's Church (on Old Bethnal Green Road), Bethnal Green. Both gave their address as 8 Hare Street, Bethnal Green. On this marriage, Ann lists her father as William Turner, Paper Maker, which I have yet to confirm. Likewise, I've been unable to find a marriage of an Ann Turner to anyone named Burr.

There was an Albert Edward Thompson born in 1872 M Quarter in BETHNAL GREEN Volume 01C  Page 334, with his mother's maiden name as Turner, but I've found no record that would confirm this as a child of this couple.

In 1851, Solomon Thompson (28) Carpenter, from Northamptonshire, alone, but listed as married, had been a Lodger in Mile End Old Town, Stepney.

In 1861, Solomon Thompson (37) Joiner, from Northamptonshire along with wife Jane (28) with her birthplace listed as Clifton, Cumberland, were living in Seabright Street, Bethnal Green

There are no clues whatsoever to Jane's maiden name, nor can I find a record of their marriage either. There was a death of a Jane Thompson of the approximately correct age in 1868, but no means to confirm that this is the relevant one. Neither can I find if there were any children of this marriage.

It appears that Solomon Thompson died, aged 49, in 1872 S Quarter in SAINT GEORGE IN THE EAST Volume 01C Page 310.

Sadly, too many people named Ann Thompson to follow her forward.
