Thompson Genealogy & History

Thompson is of Celtic origin and is especially popular in England and Wales but also in Ireland and Scotland; the Scottish variation is Thomson. The name is patronymic meaning "son of Tom or Thomas". The name Tom itself is derived from the Aramaic (biblical) word meaning "twin." The family motto is "nosce teipsum" meaning "know thyself", but a second one is "In lumine lucem", meaning "I may shine in the light". One of the most noteworthy members of the Thompson genealogy is Jesus' disciple Thomas. In American Thompson family history, Edward Thompsson was a passenger on the Mayflower in 1620.
