Lancashire Family 1 Samuel and Sarah COMPSTON

1/ Samuel and Sarah Compston There are full details of Samuel's ministerial history.

This family has been reasonably easy to follow as their children had very recognisable names!

I am grateful to Judith who has worked with me on this line, which is her own.

Whilst I believe that Samuel Compston's family may have originated on the Yorkshire/Lancashire/
Westmorland border, where there is a long line of Samuels going back to 1777, this is as yet unproved, and for that reason I am starting the family only at this point.

However, in the book ' Family Occupation' by Christabel Russell Vick, published 1999 she records Rev John COMPSTON b 1828 d 1889 m Catherine DEAN as the 2nd son of Rev Samuel COMPSTON of Settle in Craven. This would fit in with my assessment.

There are a number of individuals connected with this line who have their own histories included.

Providence, Rochdale - Independent Providence,

High St, Rochdale Lancashire

The church was founded in 1806. The Independent churches were ones in which each congregation was autonomous, upholding the principles of independence. In the 19th century they became known as Congregational.

In 1972 the Congregational church joined with the English Presbyterian church to become the United Reformed Church.

Felix told me about her grandmother Marie [Mollie] Compston Horseman:

John [Milton] Compston 1828 - 1889 (Herbert Fuller Bright's father) had a daughter Anne [Harriet H b 1860] who married a man with a hat shop in Rotherham called George Miller. Their daughter Katherine (Kit) Miller [Births Mar 1887 MILLER Katherine Mary Rotherham 9c 597] married Frederick Ernest Horseman (son of a farmer) [Births Dec 1882 Horseman Frederick Ernest Richmond, Y. 9d 687].

Marriages Dec 1908
HORSEMAN Frederick Ernest   Scarbro' 9d 740
MILLER Katherine Mary C   Scarbro' 9d 740

and they emigrated to Australia. Their daughter (my grandmother) was Marie (Mollie) Compston Horseman who married William Longford Power. Their son was Roderick Packenham Power who married Elizabeth (Binkie) Langtry Stafford and had me Felicity (Felix) Ann Power.
Many thanks Felix for your contribution to the site.
