Charles and Samuel Thompson


Violin maker
(fl. 1763 – 1790)

By the time Charles and Samuel Thompson took charge of their family's workshop in 1763, it had become one of many London violin shops who sold instruments by various outside makers bearing the firm's labels. The business began with their father Peter around 1746 and by 1761 was known as Thompson & Sons. The business bore both the brothers names until 1790, although Charles disappears from the records ...Read More after 1776. After Samuel's death in 1794 it continued through several generations before closing in 1805.

Many London makers sold undistinguished trade instruments through the shop, including Jacob Ford and John Barton. Read Less
