  • Notes 
    • Claimed by some as a passenger on the Ark or the Dove, but he's not one of the "qualifying ancestors" for the Order of First Families of Maryland.

      Arrival in Maryland given variously as 1634 and 1641, the latter more likely.

      Mary Louise Donnelly's John Medley 1615-1660 gives his birth year as 1594, referencing Archives of Maryland 4: 354. But that page of the Archives, on which "Willm Tompson" is described as "aged 50 yeares or thereabouts", appears to be from "Court and Testamentary Business" conducted in 1647. Possibly Donnelly was misled by the presence of the date "Janvary the 14th 1644" toward the top of page 354, which appears to refer to the case referenced in that paragraph, not to the overall page.
