Mary CLARKE, edit
Mary was born in MD, not CT, per record.

Mary CLARKE (ABT 1646, Charles County, Maryland, British North America - BEF 29 May 1713, Charles County, Maryland, British North America) [See G0497A: Mary CLARKE in Descendants of Robert CLARKE the SURVEYOR (1611 - AFT 14 July 1664 and BEF 21 July 1664.]

Sir John F. COMPTON II, Will & Brathwood Land Patent
Sir John F. COMPTON II, Will & Brathwood Land Patent

The lineage to Lord Henry, Bishop of London, via John COMPTON I of Roxbury, still has to be confirmed via paper trail.
* I heard COMPTON was from Wales, but that may have been an origin of exit, rather than location of lineage.

What I can confirm via paper trail:
COMPTON II, Sir John b: 20 April 1638 d: 1718 MD
* AFT 29 May 1713 and BEF 5 March 1718, Charles County, Maryland, British North America
married 1666, Maryland
CLARKE/CLARK, Mary Rebecca b: 06 Jan 1644/45 CT; d: 03 Feb 1721/22 CT

It is known that on 12 June 1665, a survey was taken for him of 800 acres of land, an estate called "Brathwood," which was recorded on LORD BALTIMORE's - Lord CALVERT - rent rolls.

Last Will and Testament of John F. COMPTON: Charles County, Maryland: 29 May 1713:
In the name of God Amen. The 29th of May 1713. I, John COMPTON, being sick and weake of body but of sound and perfect memory praise be to God for the Same, and knowing the uncertainty of this life on earth and being desirous to tittle things in order, do make this my last will and testament in manner and form following.
That is to say first and principally I Commend my soul to almighty God my Creator assuredly believeing (sic) that I shall receive full pardon and free remission of all my sins and be saved by the precise Death and merits of my blessed Saviour and redeemer Christ Jesus, and my body to the earth from whence it was taken to be buried in such decent and Christian manner.

John Compton 138 - 1718
What is your documentation for John being related to Henry Compton, Bishop of London? I can't seem to reconcile your biography with the actual available documents concerning the Brathwood deed, etc. Please advise as to how you came to your conclusions.

John Compton b 1605-7 d 1652
Jayne - Do you have more information on John Compton, his son John, father John, Thomas, William or whatever? I ask because I have found several different assertions as to this John's parentage and I'm not finding any proof such as birth registry with parents names. He's an ancestor of mine, I believe, so I want to get the English lineage right.
