Tompson Chitty

Tompson CHITTY (1815-1863), youngest son of Joseph 'STATUTES' CHITTY; for his working life, see earlier. By his wife, Sarah BOWNESS, he had fifteen children. Somewhere in this branch, but not yet identified by me, must be the Australian footballer whom Christopher CHITTY was proud to claim as a distant cousin.

iv. Henry William, b.1843 Aug 6 St Pancras, d.1894 Dec 25. Presumably the Henry William of the Bank of Australia who was executor in 1891 of Wm. Farington CHITTY (son of Charles 'of Muntham').
