Edward CAMPTON
« on: Monday 27 August 18 00:51 BST (UK) »
Hi

I am trying to trace a Edward CAMPTON who married Ann KIMBERLEY 26 Dec 1819 Holy Trinity, Coventry.

He and his wife had 9 children that I know of.

According to the various census's he was from Foleshill, Warwickshire c1787.

So far I have had no luck in finding him.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

familysearch has a baptism for Edward COMPTON, 5 Aug 1787 in Alveston, Warwickshire, parents William and Hannah.

Might this be him?

Thanks for all the help.

I didn't know about his previous marriage so that is really useful.

I've tried hunting for all the Edward Campton/Camptin/Compton etc for between 1780 and 1790 and there are none for Foleshill.

Alverston does seem more likely.
