Name Carl Niklas Ol. Joh.sson Gender Male Christening Date 12 Nov 1843 Christening Place Eskelhem, Gotland, Sweden Birth Date 05 Nov 1843 Father's Name Ol. Joh. Toftstrom Mother's Name Anna Cecilia Hansdotter

Note: The naturalisation certificate for Charles includes the information that he was 35 years of age at the time he became a citizen in 1875. This would calculate for him to be born about 1840. Also, the headstone for Charles is inscribed that he was 82 years of age at the time of his death in 1921. This would calculate for him to be born about 1839. Yet his death registration includes the information that he was 81 years of age at the time of his death.

"Two more children - Charles V & Sylvia M Thompson

Charles V and Sylvia M Thompson appear in the Blanch family book held by Ken Thompson. I entered 11 children of Charles and Mary from the beginning. Now that we are getting down to verifications, I applied for death certificates from BDM but nothing for Charles V. However, There is a BDM birth reference 13238/1885 for Charles V in the Newtown district but no deceased record. we probably won't pursue Charles V any further and accept he apparently died at a young age (8) with no marriage or children.

As regards Sylvia M Thompson, BDM has a record of Sylvia M birth ref. 25756/1893 also in the Newtown district. There is a marriage to Reginald M Oliver 5164/1915 in the Glebe district and BDM has a second marriage record of Sylvia M 2015/1930 to Francis P Neary in the Marrickville district. We are applying for these three transcripts and are confident the birth record exists. However, we cannot find a deceased record for Sylvia; it is possible she moved out of NSW or even to New Zealand similar to her sister Hilda Catherine Thompson.

Trust the forgoing is sufficient to include Charles and Sylvia in your MNCP; however, you may prefer the respective birth transcripts beforehand."

The birth reference for Charles V quoted above does not seem to relate to this family, viz:

"Charles Thompson had 40 acres of land a small part of which I now own and live on (1,800 m2) plus Big Island in Wallis Lake close to the shore which was sub-divided and distributed amongst his children. Bert Rassmussen later became the owner of some of that land and one of his builder sons later developed it into a housing estate opposite my home in Forster in accordance with the sub-division plan established by my great grandfather and grand father in 1937, Great Lakes Council kindly supplied a copy to me."
