Catharine Compston

 Catharine Compston at

A new addition to my research – an artist painting in pastel.

I’ve emailed Catharine in Alberta and hope she will add to her page

2011-05-03 I am delighted to hear from Catharine

She has a brother Michael Compston in Calgary, Alberta.  Her grandfather was Sydney Compston and his wife was Eva Punch. They were from the north of England (Cumbria she  thinks).

They had 3 children, Catharine’s father Charles Roy Compston, Elizabeth and Gertrude.

Her father Roy (Charles Roy but he used Roy) was a captain in the Canadian army during WW II. He met her mother in the UK and they married at Taplow in  1943.

Many thanks for responding Catharine – I have given this family a new page on my website at and have discovered more about their background
