1/3/8/1867 Barnsley, Compston Herbert Fuller Bright, the son of John Milton Compston & Catherine Dean was born.
I heard in April from Peter Shields about his connection with Fuller Bright Compston
He is the grandson of Elsie Mary SHIELDS (nee COMPSTON), 1890-1981, and thus a great-grandson of his Honour Judge John Albert COMPSTON and a great-great-grandson of Revd. John Milton COMPSTON. He says that it is tempting to assume that Andrew Fuller Bright was Herbert’s godfather.
This page http://suffolkedwards.freehostia.com/sternfield/grpf21.html tells us he came from Suffolk, married in 1856 and had children in Suffolk and Essex, and White’s Directory for 1863 has him as a Grocer in Great Coggeshall in 1863 and the family were still in that part of the world in the 1871 census.
So how was an Essex grocer already known to ex-grocer Revd Compston as early as 1866 when Herbert was born? I suspect there is a connection via Barnsley but further work is needed on this one! He now has a new page on my website at http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/herbert-fuller-b-compston/4535030688
