She m. John TOMPSON, 1709, Newland, GLS (per allegations; age 22, so b. abt 1687). How does she fit into the rest of the COSTER family? There was a Dorothy, d/o James COSTER, bapt 1687. Her age is appropriate; father James had a will admon and mentioned only his wife. It may be possible, but this is too circumstantial to enter with any certainty. Did she and John go to Surrey? Is she the mother of 1722 James THOMPSON, b. Surrey?

Of Newland, Bitton, Bye Mill, Publow, Pensford. We think 1687 John and his wife, Anne nee COSTER, both of Newland, GLS, may be the founding family line of the Bye Mill, Publow, Pensford, SOM families. We have theories, but have been unable to prove some key linking members of the family. Please follow the THOMPSON / COSTER Puzzles link to see details of the THOMPSON brick walls, particularly re the early family, as well as the THOMPSON family page. Contact Marsha
