Correction for Jacob Thompson


Published before 2005

While browsing your web site I came across a reference to a work by Jacob Thompson (1806-1879) and designating him as being French. I think that you will find that he is actually English. He was born in Penrith (Cumbria) and was supported and encouraged in his work by the Earl of Lonsdale. I enjoy your site immensely and would like to congratulate all who are involved with its work.
