'My husbands family tree has a richard compston christened in Kendal on 09/031828 son for Edward Compston (occ joiner) and Jane his wife who lived in French Lane, Kendal.
I have found a christening of an Edward Compston in Kendal in 1803 son of Edward and Ruth which I am trying to establish if this is correct as Richard's father as if it is an Agnes Compston christened 31/03/1815 to Edward and Ruth would be Edwards sister ch 24/09/1803 meaning they are related to Richard Compston ch 1828 in Kendal.
Richard Compston married Elizabeth Smith at Manchester Cathedral 29/07/1850.

'Edward Compston is my wife's ancestor. The information I have confirms he had a daughter Agnes born on the 31st. March 1815 in Kendal. My wife's line comes from his son Richard who was born on 9th March 1823 in French Lane, Kendal. '
I would welcome contact from these researchers so we can discuss this family further
