Nothing other than his name, George Thomason, year of his birth-1576, and birth place, Sudlow, England.  Thanks for trying MacT, it was a long shot, that far back in time.

Barbara,

Thanks for the kind words.
Try this link for Sudlow:
http://www.geocities.com/jthoma@sbcglobal.net/index.html

I googled Sudlow and came up with the above link with this description:
THE THOMASON FAMILY TREE
Descendants of George Thomason of Sudlow, a small hamlet in Cheshire County, England as compiled by Kenneth Thomasson and John R Thomason.
 
Semper Fidelis! Semper Familia!

Thank you Stu.  I took a look at the site and it has a lot of my relatives.  I will have to email one of the Thomasons/Thomassons that own that site.  I love finding new cousins! 

I really, really want to find out where my 9th. grt. grandfather George (from Sudlow) Thomason's father was from.  I'm researching this line because of the Thomasons in the Borders area of Scotland, and hoping they originally came from there.

WELL BARBARA, IF ITS IN CHESHIRE, ITS ABOUT 200 MILES AWAY HOPE THAT HELPS. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU SEARCH FROM AN ANGLE RE THE WAR OF THE ROSES. CHESTER WERE THE SIDE OF LANCASTRIANS ......AND SO WERE THE SCOTS FROM THE BORDERS, AFTERWARDS THERE WAS AGOOD ALLIANCE BETWIXT THE 2.............STEVIE

Thanks MacT, I will.  I'm dissapointed Sudlow is so far away from the Borders, was hoping it was closer. In the past I've read a lot about the War of the Roses but over the years have forgotten a lot of it.  Will have to bone up on it.

Found the following on internet.  Seems a good source.



http://www.dundee.ac.uk/archives/source-history.htm

Family/Personal Papers
Our collections include material relating to notable Dundee families, including local business magnates such as the Cox and Baxter families. We also have records pertaining to a number of important individuals who had a connection with the Tayside and North Fife area. These include James Thompson, Dr. William Maxwell Jamieson, Peter Carmichael, Joseph Johnston Lee, Dr John Berry and Dr Ruth Young. Again, if you are looking for records of a specific person the SCAN website is always a good first port of call. For papers held in private archives you should consult the National Register of Archives for Scotland (NRAS) and the NRA.

Maybe this can help some.
