About William Thompson, Rev.

From The Cogswells in America, page xv:

Rev. William Thompson, Mrs. Cogswell's father, was the Vicar of Westbury Parish, Wiltshire, for twenty years, from 1603 to his death in 1623. His wife, Mrs. Phillis Thompson, died in 1608. The Westbury Register records her burial thus: "Phillis, uxor of Mr. William Thompson, Vicar, Sepult. 19 July, 1608." Of this marriage were Elizabeth, who married John Cogswell, Maria, who was baptized in 1604, and other children, as mention is made in his will of five daughters. After the death of Mrs. Cogswell's mother, her father married Elizabeth ____, who survived him. Of the second marriage were two sons: William, who was baptized April 23, 1615, and Samuel, whose baptism is thus recorded in the Westbury Register: "1616, Samuell, filius Willmi. Thompsonn, Vicarie de Westburie, baptizat Novemb. 30."

Samuel Thompson, Mrs. Cogswell's youngest brother, became the Rev. Samuel Thompson, D.D., of London. His son, William Thompson, lived with his uncle, John Cogswell, for many years in Ipswich, Mass. Vid. p. 12.
