There are no Thornborrow births with the MMN of Thompson. Either they were born abroad or adopted.

There's the birth of a Mary C Thornborrow, mms Thompson, in 1940 in Westmorland S reg district.
I know it's before the marriage, but that's the only Thornborrow/Thompson marriage 1920-50 in England/Wales.

Margaret C probably married in 1963 in Westmorland South.

EDIT: that birth is Thornborrow on FreeBMD, but Thornburrow on Ancestry - and is Thornburrow on the GRO Index image - so not a daughter of Margaret & George. There was a Thornburrow / Thompson marriage in Kendal in 1932.



Other possible births -

George A, born in Carlisle 1947. Possible middle name Alan ??

Also John M, Westmorland N, 1949. Michael ??

[Well, maybe not - a John M Thornborrow married in Penrith in 1992 - and you say Michael never married.]

192.com shows a John M Thornborrow at an address in Penrith in 2015.


However, Pauline's question re their father's marriage has been answered, so I won't pursue this.
