1598 Info 2 for The Cromptons of Hacking Hall
The International Genealogical Index (IGI v.5) makes no reference to Prestolee. However the map of 2003 shows that Prestolee is still close to open land which rises a minimum of 75m from the river. Could this land have been moorland in the 16th century hence Prestolee was known as Bolton le Moors.
Working back from the known deaths of John of Beverley, Dr Thomas LLD and Richard of Hacking, who died between 1598 and 1604, and the details of Ralph Assheton (see 1598info3), the father of John's wife Eleanor, it is possible to reason:
Of the recorded John of Prestolee ours is likely to have been:

Mary Agnes Tibbits (nee CROMPTON) declared the mother of Dr. Thomas CROMPTON LLD to be Eleanor, daughter of Ralph Assheton of Great Lever, Whalley Lancashire. Whilst the birth of Eleanor has yet to be found it is possible that IGI v.5 records her parents as:
Source: IGI v.5 Batch: Source: Type: Ralph/Rauf Asheton b.~1500 Great Lever, Lancashire d. m. Eleanor/Elena de Hulton of Hulton, Lancashire b.~1502
Although the birth of Eleanor, wife of John CROMPTON is not recorded it would seem possible that Ralph and Eleanor named their daughter after her mother. If Ralph was born about 1500 then he is likely to have married about 1525 with Eleanor being born before 1530. Her marriage to John CROMPTON would be about 1550, with their three known children being born in the following five years. These children are known to have died between 1598 and 1604, at about fifty years old.
It is interesting to note that John's father, John CROMPTON of Prestolee, married Catherine HULTON, daughter of Alan HULTON of Farnsworth Hall. It is therefore possible that the mother-in- law of his son, John CROMPTON of Prestolee and London, may have been Eleanor HULTON of Hulton, Lancashire and from the same family.
IGI shows three Catherine HULTON, an Alan HULTON and an Adam HULTON (a possible transcription error for a family name of Alan).

However it is unlikely that any of these names are relevant to the family tree. They are more likely to be the descendants of Catherine daughter of Alan HULTON of Farnworth.
