In May 2010 Janice Jones wrote to ask me about Ruth Sewell who married Edward Compston on 25 Jun 1792 in Kendal, Westmorland.
Janice has an Isabella Sewell who married John Smith on 24 Dec 1797, also in Kendal. She is unsure of Isabella’s parents but they were probably Henry Sewell and Margaret Bray. She wondered if my entry for Ruth and her Isabella could well be related.
Ruth has a family tree at Ancestry which records Spouse & Children:
Ruth Sewell 1773 –
Eleanor Compston 1793 –
Mary Compston 1795 –
Edward Compston 1803 – 1867
Ruth Compston 1812 – 1814
Agnes Compston 1815 –
Jane Compston 1824 –
Sheila Leigh wrote to ancestry:
'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
