Thomas Smith and Lucy Thompson

Northampton: St Giles

Thomas Smith and Lucy Thompson had married, on 26 Feb 1838, at St Giles Church, Northampton. Thomas Smith, Brickmaker, it says, was son of Thomas Smith, Labourer. Lucy Thompson was the daughter of Solomon Thompson Jnr and Maria Willis. Both gave their address at the time as "Butcher's Yard". One of the two witnesses was Catherine Willis, who may have been related.

In 1841, Thomas (29) and Lucy (25), lived in West Haddon. Staying with them was Elizabeth Tompson (10) - actually 12 - she was Lucy's sister.

I've only found a record of one child:
  1. Ann Smith born in the 4th quarter of 1841
In 1851, we find them in Foleshill, Warwickshire - literally 'Sent to Coventry', it would seem after Lucy's little stint behind bars. Well, Thomas Smith is listed as James Smith (40) - this could be an error or it might be deliberate - still a Brickmaker and it's clearly Lucy Smith (36), birthplace Cransley, Northamptonshire. Listed with them was Lucy's older brother, Thomas Thompson (40), Carpenter and Ann Smith (9), born in West Haddon. 

So far, I've not found further evidence of this family.
