I can’t help but notice how many Thompsons are married to Bantings. Now I count 3 different Thompson families married to Bantings in a fairly tight timeframe. Does anyone know of a connection between the 3 Thompson families?
We have Thomas Banting = Isabella Thompson m.1822 Westmoreland then the Canada connection
Then Ernest W Banting = Georgina Thompson m.? This Thompson family possibly originally from Cumbria UK, via London but living in Ontario Canada
And of course Charles Banting = Susanah Thompson m.1806 Ireland then Canada
I simply throw this into the melting pot of ideas as we seek all these early connections, so we can all keep our eyes open!
