bullet  Notes:

Mary was the only daughter of James Thompson, a mason in Alnwick. It is clear from surviving letters that Mary was well educated, so she probably attended the Duchess of Northumberland's School for Girls in Alnwick, where she was later a schoolmistress. It is not known where she met her husband Richard (qv). She died shortly after returning to India in 1891 as a result of the premature delivery of her youngest daughter May, and was buried in Bombay.
