Jane, I attempted to post a reply a couple of days ago but was acting up. Now if I can just remember what it was I wanted to say.
I'm searching the Thomson brothers, Maurice, George, William, (1613-1681), Paule, (1611-1637), & Robert, (1622-1694). Maurice was probably the greatest merchant of his time. George, William x & Paule were transported to VA in 1623 by their brother-in-law, Capt. Wm. Tucker. Robert was a Founding Member of the Propagation of Gospel in Massachusetts. When Rev. Henry Whitfield returned to England, Robert purchased his house. (I think that was in Guilford, CT) Sir Wm. returned to New England and was a member for the furtherance of the Propagation of the Gospel in 1661/62. (I don't know what year he returned, however.) In 1637, Wm. m. (in England) Elizabeth Warner, d/o Samuel, a merchant and partner of Maurice's. Their eldest son was Samuel, who was knighted and may have made the voyage to America with his father. Sir Samuel married and had sons; Wm., Samuel, Robert, George, & Thomas. The only John in the family, that I'm aware of, was Maurice's son, Baron Haversham. This line is reported to have become extinct due to John's son, Maurice, 2nd Baron Haversham, having died without male issue.
The part where you mention Wm. Thompson coming to "Misticke" sounds like the Wm. Thomson I'm looking for.
(Also, you mention Oliver "Manwaring" who may be related to Randall Mainwaring, who was the brother-in-law of Joseph & Nathaniel Hawes who were partners of Maurice's.)
I would imagine that all the brothers went home to England during the Civil War as George is reported to have lost a leg in the fight.
Does any of this sound remotely close?
