Thank you for replying. I think I may be hunting for a needle in a
haystack! I can't be any more precise, my informant told me that these
two married and the names of their children, but not where or when, she
doesn't know. She is of another branch of the family and a person who
could tell me more hasn't replied to my letter. The THOMSON family did
come from Scotland originally, to farm in Essex. I have a possible 1926
death for the father of the family, nothing more.
I shall keep searching. It's quite possible that Agnes emigrated and
married Richard elsewhere.
