Query: Family from Lurgan, Co. Armagh

Posted: 23 Jul 2007 8:30AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Thompson, Boyd
I have traced my Thompson family back to Lurgan, Co. Armagh. The oldest generation I have is Robert Thompson (1783-1858) who may have been a son of William Thompson. In our family, there is some confusion about Robert's wife. I believe he married twice, first to Ann Jane Harrison then to Marie/Mary Beckett.

On June 10, 1845 Robert and several of his children and their families sailed to Quebec, Canada on board The Conqueror from Belfast. One daughter, Susanna(1816-1876), married (in 1836) to Edward Boyd and remained in Ireland. They had seven daughters, the eldset of which married William Coskin.

I'm specifically looking for any information on Edward and Susanna Boyd's family as well as Robert Thompson's ancestry and anything on his wives and their families.
