In 1825, John Goodwin Tompson founded one of South Berwick's longest-running businesses, a book and stationery store. He lived in this house, and his bookstore, now gone, was several doors away to the south.
...
John G. Tompson was 26 years old when he opened his book and stationery store, according to the 1880 History of York County. A South Berwick map of 1835 shows him living in this house at 225 Main Street, where he remained until his death in 1872.
...
John G. Tompson was born on April 30, 1799 in Standish, Maine, according to family records. His father, William Tompson, was the eldest son of Rev. John Tompson, pastor of the First Parish Congregational Church, and had been born in Standish while Rev. Tompson served as minister there before coming to South Berwick at the close of the American Revolution, when William was almost 14.
...
They moved to Standish, and named their second son John Goodwin Tompson.
John G. Tompson's uncles in South Berwick included William Allen Tompson, the preceptor of Berwick Academy who lived at today's 190 Main Street, and attorney Edward P. Hayman, cashier of South Berwick Bank.

When John arrived here and set up in business, he had many other family connections through his mother's family and, of course, his grandfather, the minister, whose new church was built in 1826, a year after the bookstore opened.
A c. 1860 South Berwick map shows the J. G. Tompson house, the bookstore, and another Tompson building, perhaps a bindery shop, set back from the street.

Rev. John Tompson c. 1739-1828 - minister of the First Parish Church , and his "truly amiable & virtuous Consort," Sarah.

...
Tompson was the last Congregational pastor to serve at the Old Fields meeting house, and saw the present church built on Main Rev. Tompson Street just before his death. A founder of Berwick Academy and its third president, he is remembered for riding his white horse to Boston in 1791 to obtain the school charter signed by John Hancock.
...
Mr. Tompson evidently plucked up his courage in accepting the call to Berwick. It was not only that he succeeded his predecessor, but the call was given in the darkest days of the Revolution, by a poor and anxious parish, with whom he frankly condoles upon its divided and languishing state. Berwick, as neighbor to her parent town of Kittery, had shared in the glorious successes of Pepperell in the siege of Louisburg; and no doubt some of her men marched with the company, formed about Saco, that was present at the fight on Bunker Hill. There is a devout assurance of Mr. Tompson's 'Requests at the throne of Grace, that the God of Peace may be with us and bless us,' as he ends his letter of acceptance. Read more about Parson Tompson.
...
Elected a member of the Massachusetts Senate in 1800 and appointed assistant clerk of the Supreme Court, he married Rev. Tompson's daughter Sarah in 1809 and became Berwick Academy's treasurer.
