Henry Thompson (1625-1683)

Sir Henry Thompson (c. 1625–1683) was an English merchant and politician.

Henry and his brother Edward Thompson were wine merchants of York. He was Lord Mayor of York in 1663, and was made a deputy lieutenant of the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1665. In 1668, Henry moved from York to a new country estate at Escrick, where he had been buying land for the past several years. After moving to Escrick, he briefly entered politics, and was a patron of Andrew Marvell. He moved once more before his death, to another estate at Long Marston, leaving Escrick to his eldest son.

By his first wife, Mary Thompson, he had no children. By his second, Jane Newton (d. 1661), he had one son, Henry Thompson (1659-1700), to whom he left Escrick. By his third wife, Susannah Lovell (d. 1701), he had several children, including Edward Thompson (1670–1734), who would inherit Long Marston. Edward's eldest son, Edward Thompson (1697-1742), would become a prominent politician; Edward (senior)'s daughter, Henrietta, was the mother of James Wolfe.
