Hi, My Comptons were farmers in the village of MInstead, however NOT the Comptons from the Manor house of Minstead. John Compton had a son William who married Mary Taplin from Lyndhurst on 11th April 1846. They had a son John William who was born 1st August 1854. William died in Croydon Surrey on 29th Dec. 1901 aged 79 so he was born about 1822.
Any of these close to you?

The Compton family I am looking for are from Ringwood, amd Amport. Thomas [b.1705] married Anne, a cousin, [b. 1709]. A son Thomas [b. 1731] married Frances Mount Childeroy, their son Harry married Charlotte Newman [Neuman]. They lived around Ringwood, and Amport. Have some more info if this seems to be connected with you. Harry moved to Prince Edward Is., Can. about 1800 because he was given 17,000-20,000 acres for military service.

Hi David, My research currently is only going as far back as the late 1700's.I have John Compton, a farmer, born in Ringwood in 1789 or 1799, and his wife Jane who was born in Minstead, which is just up the road from Ringwood. John is my 3g grandfather. His son William died in 1901 in Croydon in Surrey, which is a suburb of London. I will have to get a film of the parish records of Ringwood to do more research.
Regards
Geoff Radnor

I might have a vague connection to this line. I certainly have Compton's from Hampshire, one of which moved to Croydon Surrey before some members of his family moved to Australia. I am in contact with a lady living here in Australia who is directly descended from Thomas Compton and Frances Mount Childeroy. We are yet to determine beyond doubt that we are actually related. There were so many Compton's in Wiltshire and Hampshire way back in the 1700's.

My ancestors came from Hampshire, My gt gt grandfather Thomas Allen Compton was born Lockerley 1846. He married Jane Essex 1870 in Glos. They moved to Oxfordshire where the first child, Thomas Clifton Bertrand (my Gt grandfather) was born in 1871. They moved to Croydon, Surrey where they had Alice, Mabel, Elsie, Annie and Elizabeth. TCB married Caroline (Clarissa) Klaus in 1903 and they eventually moved to Australia with their 3 children.
