Lawrence Crompton Barton-upon-Irwell b. C 1781
« on: Tuesday 20 January 15 14:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi.  Searching for (my) family, Cromptons of Barton-upon-Irwell.
I have Lawrence and his wife Margaret, both b. C 1781, with son (or grandson) John Crompton b. 1843 with his wife Frances Jane Yates.
At this stage I am looking for the parents of Lawrence, along with trying to make contact with any (distant or otherwise!) relations.

I do have a long list of children of John and Frances, although I have come across the same family with the mother just referred to as Wedderburn. Perhaps a step-mother?

I would be grateful for any help with these, please!

Looking at the ages of Lawrence and Margaret - both 72 at the time of the 1851 census I would have said John Crompton b 1843 was more likely to be a grandson than a son. The image says "son" but all the other family members are listed as unmarried.

Heather Juliie, and Garstonite
not sure yet of the protocol on RootsChat with saying thank you for your help, but – Thank you for your help!! – you have answered several questions which had held me up. 
I had looked briefly at Lan-OPC before, but lost track after some drastic home upheavals. (moving to France!)
I echo your thoughts about “the wonderful transcribers!” having been involved with same wonderful, very hard-working volunteers in Norfolk, and having worked with them too, in Norfolk Family History Society.

Merci et Bonne Chance Martine!
