It is interesting to note that in the 1881 census Joseph CROMPTON was a visitor at his sister Mary's home in Carnaby, perhaps looking for work as an itinerant shepherd on the Wolds.

In the fourth quarter of 1881, Joseph married Elizabeth CLUBLEY (GRO ref: Bridlington 9d 623), born in the fourth quarter of 1852 (GRO ref: Bridlington 9d 227). Elizabeth' s family name has associations with the Cromptons. In 1881 she lived in a Carnaby farm house as a general servant to the house keeper/head to a 256 acre absent landlord farmer.

In the 1881 Chaplin census, Walter CLUBLEY, aged seven months, was a boarder and Joseph CROMPTON a lodger. Walter Hart CLUBLEY was born in the fourth quarter of 1880 (GRO ref: Bridlington 9d 321) and died in the fourth quarter of 1882 (GRO ref: Bridlington  9d 227). The exact relationship or coincidence has not been established. However, Mary CHAPLIN may have been looking after the natural son of Elizabeth CLUBLEY and Joseph CROMPTON. But, Walter's second name may indicate the surname of his natural father.

The couple started their own family. Joseph was still employed as a shepherd, but it should be noted that in the six year spread of his children's births he has lived in at least four villages.

Elizabeth died in the third quarter of 1896 (GRO ref: Bridlington 9d 255). By the 1901 census William, Sarah J and Charles H have left home. Mary COOPER, though married, had moved in to 6 Eastgate Lane, Rudston with her three children. Joseph seems to have settled in Rudston for some seven years.

Although the census enumerator recorded the people as living in Eastgate Lane the 1911 map shows only the name East Gate. However, the village has several other streets named as Lane. In fact, Eastgate is a dead end and leads into a footpath, or lane. In 1901 the progress of the enumerator was:

  1. Eastgate House which, being at the end of the lane and a good place to start, is perhaps called Eastgate House Farm in 2008;
  2. The second home recorded was Eastgate Hind House: Hind being 'located at the back or rear' of Eastgate House;
  3. The Manor;
  4. The Vicarage;
  5. 23 dwellings were recorded in Eastgate Lane: Joseph lived at number 6 and the shop was number 17
  6. Kilham Lane, to the south-west edge of the map.

This suggests, depending on the enumerator's route, that Joseph Crompton lived in the row of cottages marked red.

The postcard gives a good picture of the where Joseph CROMPTON lived at the time of the 1901 census. It is possible that the shop was located in the row of cottages on the left under the final chimney stack. It is thererfore possible that Joseph lived in the cottages on the opposite side of the road.

It is believed that these cottages have been replaced by modern bungalows.
