This page is to help organize research on this surname in the area of Claggan and nearby townlands, just north of Cookstown.

The variants Compton and Kempton seem to be fully interchangeable. I have settled on the former for a standardized spelling on Wikitree.


Unattached heads

That is, people with no ancestor set.

Anne Jane has a husband Samuel with no profile yet as I have no birth or death dates.

It's possible the James(1797) is conflated: one of his children gives father as "James , Dunmore, blacksmith" and the other two as "James, Dunmore, farmer".

Have not attached Samuel(1851) to John of Ballynagilly as the townlands are different - awaiting more evidence.

Dunmore: James, Robert and Thomas. Ballybriest: Robert and William. Ballynagilly: Robert.
