Cumpston Research

My Australian relatives most generously offered to arrange a CUMPSTON reunion. Their invitation was open to all Cumpston [and variants] descendants, from all over the world.

Newsletter No.2 1st March 2010

We are delighted that Glenys Marriott will be joining us from the UK with her husband Ray. Glenys is the author of this website and has recently completed a book on the Cumpstons of Hull.
Last month we mentioned the 2 family lines from Hull. These descend through George William and Samuel Bolton whose father came to Australia in 1852. There is a 3rd also well documented (mainly WA?) line. This group comes from Barton and Brough in Westmorland.

This month we have had contact with descendants of Samuel Bolton Cumpston. It’s a small world … just by chance, one of his descendants found himself playing football in the Philippines with a George William descendant he had not previously met.

Contact us Please use our email address [email protected]  or ring Maeva Galloway on 02-6282 6565. And please pass this information on to any family members we have missed. We are gradually expanding our email contact list and all additions are welcome.

All the best from The Canberra Connection: Margaret Spencer, Maeva Galloway and Margaret Bourke (all 3 are Canberra Cumpstons from the George William line).
