After reading with the greatest care every story of the Thompson ancestry which has been handed down among the descendants and searching many other papers along these historical lines, we give, by the author's kind permission, the summary of Rev. Dr. E.S. Stackpole in his "Old Kittery, ME and her families".

He carefully searched all documents which could throw any light on this matter.

There is tradition that Robert Thompson was the emigrant ancestor of the Thompson's of Durham, New Hampshire. He may have been the one who witnessed a deed in 1652. Thompson's Point, just south of the Cocheca River was so called as early as 1644, and probably in 1635. Thompson's Point House was taxed in Dover, NH in 1648. The name of the owner is not given..

William Thompson appears in the records soon after this. Mr. John Scales of Dover, NH says he came from England in 1633. He received a grant of land in Dover, NH in 1656. This was laid out March 17, 1658/59 "beyond Cocheco Logg Swamp." Nov 8, 1715, John Thompson, Sr., of Dover conveyed to John Tuttle fifty acres of land which "were granted to my father, William Thompson by the town of Dover." It lay beyond Cocheo Log Swamp, "bounded on the south by Bellamy Bank River." There is no evidence that William Thompson ever lived on this grant. On Oct. 15, 1656 a grant made to John White in 1614 was assigned to William Thompson. It wa in Kittery, a short way below Sturgeon Creek. Several indications suggest that he had married the daughter of John White.

In 1659 William Thompson was presented at York Court "for rebellion against his father and mother-in-law".

He died in 1676 and his estate was appraised Jun 22 of that year at 52 pounds and 18s. He left twenty-three acres of land, a house and orchard in Kittery, ME and 50 acres in Dover, NH, which he gave to his sons, William and Robert and to John White

Genealogical and family history of the state of Maine . By George Thomas Little, Henry Sweetser Burrage, Albert Roscoe Stubbs. Page 750

 

The Thompsons have long been considered one of the most sturdy, honest, witty, patriotic, and talented families of the old Pine Tree State. They have always wanted “to have and to hold some spot of God’s green earth.” And the study of hundreds of these acquisitions fail to show the slightest trace of any of them using unfair means in their eager quest. They made grand records as farmers, scholars, soldiers, writers, lawyers, etc. many of the family are widely scattered over the West, and often bear the happy praise “Transplanted Pines of Maine!” Alonzo Thompson of Denver, Colorado, has well written: .

           “the guidance of Hope is the star on our way. .
           A Becon of light which points to the day.
           Whose curtain ne’er falls in the gloom of the night,.
           We follow it still, and the pathway is Right!”.
 
(I)              William Thompson is said to have come from England in 1633, and had lands granted to him at Dover, New Hampshire, in 1656, and also at Kittery, Maine, where he made his home for twenty happy years, and was highly respected for energetic work on his farm and in every cause of righteousness and truth.  

He is said to have married a daughter of John White, a woman of noble and helpful character.
