Welcome to The Thompson Family Page, which furnishes historical detail beyond the site index, exploring four generations of Thompsons in the line of  William Thompson of Londonderry, Ireland.

7. Juliet Thompson (Bateman) --Juliet Thompson was born Feb. 23, 1804, in SC (or Anson Co. NC.) and died Dec. 18, 1876, in Houston Co., TN. She was the wife of John Bateman and mother of Emmaline Bateman and nine other children. She was one of ten children of parents Charles Thompson and Mary Hodges, who were originally from Virginia.

8. Charles Thompson --Charles Thompson, father of Juliet, was born in June 1760 in Dinwiddie, Co., VA. and raised in the environs of Chamberlayne Bed Creek.. He joined the Virginia Militia in Capt. Edward Pegram's Company. He moved to Northampton Co. NC in the spring of 1781 and sold his farm near Five Forks one year later. In 1782, he purchased 250 acres in Williams District, Northampton Co. NC; moved in 1790 to a farm west of Wadesboro, Indian Camp Fork of Little Branch Creek, Anson Co. NC. In 1800, he moved to York District of South Carolina and in 1805 finally moved to Dickson Co. TN. On Dec.23, 1785, he married Mary Hodges (1769-1848, died in TN), the daughter of Thomas Hodges (d.1817) of Northampton Co., Virginia. Thomas, like Charles, was a Revolutionary War veteran. (His wife is unknown, and no further ancestry is known on the Hodges side.) Charles Thompson died March 4, 1847 (or 1837) in Dickson Co. Historical documentation indicates that Charles Thompson and Thomas Thompson were brothers and that they traveled from Virginia to SC together. It is believed that Amos Thompson was also a brother of Charles, leaving the family homestead in VA to Charles in his will. Charles and Thomas Thompson's father was William Thompson of Londonderry, Ireland.

9. William Thompson --The father of Charles, William was born ca. 1735 in Londonderry, Ireland. He is believed to have had at least three children, Charles, Thomas and Amos, and to have immigrated to the Southeast US (perhaps VA, where his son Charles was born) before 1760.  Neither his wife nor his parents or his death date are known.
