  • Notes 
    • The 1669 visitation of Oxford states that his father was a Richard Tompson.

      Early records call him "yeoman"; later, he is referred to as "of Clifford's Inn" (one of the Inns of Chancery associated with the Inner Temple, itself one of the Inns of Court) and "gentleman."

      Several earlier researchers give his death date as 6 Nov 1626, the date of his will, which is the death date given in his IPM. However, he added a codicil to his will on 7 Nov. His IPM was taken almost two years after his death, which may have contributed to the error.
