John Frederick Dorman writes a short biography for Reverend Thomas Hampton (1623 - 1690) son of William Hampton who resided in Kingston Parish and died after 28 June 1683. In the footnotes, there is a disclaimer that Reverend Thomas Hampton is not to be confused with another Reverend Thomas Hampton who served as a minister in Jamestown from 1640-1645 then in Hampton Parish of York County, Virginia in1646. The other Thomas Hampton died about 1647 and had not issue. Thomas died in 5 Jan 1647/8. 
His birthplace or baptism place was listed here previously as: St. Olave's, co. Surrey St. Katherine's-Next-The-Tower London St. Olave's East Smithfield, Middlesex, England. However, this seems to contain misnamed information and also needs a citation.
St Katharine's by the Tower; a medieval church and hospital next to the Tower of London. The establishment was founded in 1147; East Smithfield is is the name of a road in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in east London.
He died in 1690 in James City, Virginia or Jamestown, Virginia.
