1738 Info 3: Thomas Crompton of Bridlington
Thomas Richardson CROMPTON was born in 1772 in Bridlington. He was baptised in
The Priory Church, Bridlington, on 03 December 1772. Thomas Richardson and family seem to have
move to the Nafferton property around 1814-1815.
He married Martha HYDE of Barmston on 02 December 1802 at Barmston. (Source: IGI M107092)
|As a farmer and landowner he farmed Westfield Farm (right), Nafferton, (GR TA051 587) and, bought Houndale Farm of 1000 acres, (GR TA042597 OS Landranger 107), which was later found to have been sold under false pretences and it is said he lost £10, 000 on the deal; it being proved that the vendor did not legally own it.|
'.... In 18l3 and 1814 Richard[son] CROMPTON, of Beeford, took over Great Houndales with
other plots of land and a house in Nafferton. Thomas Farthing still farmed the estate meaning that
Crompton either sub-let or had purchased from Ann Paul
(Unlikely but it is difficult to distinguish between leases and freehold conveyance in the 19th century.)

IGI records shows Martha to be the mother of all these children, but the forenames of the fathers varies. However there is no doubt that these are the children of Thomas Richardson and Martha. This baptismal evidence also shows where the family was living at the time of their children's birth.
