Source provided by Hatte Blejer: NOTES ON THOMPSON FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT by DONALD LINES JACOBUS, M.A., of New Haven, Conn.

He writes: "THE earlier generations of the Thompson families of East Haven and of New Haven have been confused, and the published accounts are inaccurate without exception. The principal reason for this is that three John Thompsons in succession nourished in each family. Furthermore, considerable confusion has arisen with regard to their wives, due to the fact that John, Sr., of New Haven married Ellen Harrison, while the widow of the first John of East Haven married Thomas Harrison for her second husband. Consequently, Ellen has been assigned indiscriminately to three separate Johns. The following account of the two families may help to straighten matters...." Here is his account of the marriages of Joseph Thompson and his offspring. Joseph3 Thompson (John1) removed to Wallingford, Conn., where he married first, about 1683, Mrs. Elizabeth (lathrop) Royce, widow of Isaac, who was born in 1648, and in 1669 married Isaac Royce, who died in 1682. She died before 1690, when Joseph Thompson is referred to as father-in-law of the Royce children (County Court Records, vol. 1, p. 178). He married secondly, 22 Nov. 1694, Mercy Jacob. In Feb. 1704, administration on the estate of Joseph Thomson of Wallingford, deceased, was granted to Mr. John Moss and to Joseph Thomson, son of the deceased; and the estate was distributed to the widow Mercy, and to Joseph, John, and Hannah (County Court Records, vol. 2, p. 151). ---
