 "William Thompson, Low Country Poet": 1911 Census Listing

  I have found the listing for the family of the well known Ards Poet, William Thompson.
William Thompson, is listed in a household in Ballyfrench as a 9 year old boy, living with his parents, Robert and Mary Jane Thompson, and two of his siblings, Agnes and Mary Thompson.
  Here is a link to the original page at the National Archives of Ireland:
  http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/2104188/nai002296235/

  From this census page, we now know that William's father, Robert Thompson, was born in abt. 1856, and his mother, Mary Jane, was born in abt. 1867.
  We also now know that they were living in Ballyfrench in 1911, and that they were born in County
 Down.

  Here is a link where you can find information on a book, a collection of poems by the poet, William Thompson:

  This collection of his poems, which also includes vintage photographs, is being sold as a fundraiser for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
