Fr. Thompson was a Catholic priest imprisoned and executed at Tyburn. He had been arrested with St. Anne Line's brother and husband and was killed by law for being a Catholic priest. He refused to renounce the Catholic Faith even though he knew that his sentence was to be hung, drawn and quartered on the Triple Gallows at Tyburn.
