Dick's brother, John Henry Crompton, known as Jack, homesteaded in Wainwright, Alberta in 1906. In 1976 Edgerton and District published a local history book entitled "The Winds of Change" by Richard Potsan, in which there are several entries for early pioneers. In this is written, 'Jack Crompton was a well educated man and had travelled extensively.
|He was a correspondent and photographer for a London newspaper in the South
African War. After the [Boer] war he and a brother farmed in South Africa until a disease
(sleeping sickness) killed off their cattle.'
This brother was Dick who is recorded on the 'Gascon's' passenger list of 28 August 1905 as a miller returning from East London to Southampton as a third class passenger.
