  • There are not many sources for data on William and his wife Martha.  A couple of genealogies report some information that appears to come form family sources, but no documentation is provided.

    William Thompson
    Birth 1652 in Rapidan, Orange, Virginia
    Death 1701 in Blackwell Neck, Hanover, Virginia
    Married Martha Elizabeth Buttall
    Birth 1627 in Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales
    Death 1670 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    --  Fisher Family,

    Note that William is about 25 years older that Martha.  There is confusion on the husbands of Martha Buttall, and overlapping dates in the various sources, indicating that two or more individuals are confused in the reports.  One fact supporting this is that Thomas Wynne, rep[roted to have married Martha Buttall, immigrated to Philadelphia form Wales, and Philadelphia is reported as the place of death of Martha Buttall who married William Thompson. But William Thompson and his wife Martha are associated with Virginia, not Philadelphia.  There may have been two women of the same name, one in Virginia and the other in Philadelphia, or the maiden name has been imposed.  some sources for William Thompson's wife have only her first name of Martha.
