'My name is Robyn Todd and I am writing on behalf of my partner's mother, who is a decendant of the Cumpston's. Her Mother was a Cumpston, and was decendant of Lancelot Cumpston and Elizabeth Bowser. They live in Perth Western Australia. Lesley has names and dates and rough tree's along with photo's that she doesnt know who they are.

JOHN CUMPSTONE WAS CONVICTED OF HORSE STEALING AND SENT TO AUSTRALIA IN 1787.

DO YOU HAVE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HIM OR HIS DESCENDENTS?
