    I have no connection with this family and I'm sure you have all done great research, but I admit to being confused. It looks to me from the census entries below as if William Downes was Marcus Thompson's uncle rather than his half brother, unless there was another William Downes.

    The William Downes I think is my great grandfather's half brother is the William aged 7 and son of William and Lucy in 1861. He was born the last quarter of 1953, a year before their marriage in Dec 1854. He kept the name Downes as an adult.

    Yes I think that is all correct except I'm not sure about the middle name George

    I am the daughter of Vera Thompson, who was Marcus Thompson junior's only surviving child.

    Have found a photo with Leslie Francis Thompson written on the back - have you found this name in the family anywhere?
