The Inner Temple Admissions Database records that Thomas  CROMPTON, gentleman, son and heir apparent of Robert CROMPTON, an armiger (an 'armour bearer for a knight - a squire, or a person entitled to heraldic arms') of Great Driffield, Yorkshire was admitted to the Inn on 7 November 1639.

In the Civil War he was in arms against Parliament. In 1649, according to Clay, two Thomas CROMPTON's are mentioned as Royalist sympathisers. Each was compounded - agreed for a consideration not to be prosecute. One estate was penalised to the amount of £387. This is equivalent, by an income value, to £1,675,000 in 2018. The other estate was fined £887. This is equivalent, by income value, to £3.84 million in 2018. At this moment it is not know which Thomas was fined which amount.
