I am researching my NZ Compton family. I do not know further back than my William Compton born in Chipping Ongar 1853 to William and Sophia. They lived in Staines, Middlesex also. Connected to my NZ Comptons are Hoopers and Wiltons. William came out to NZ with his parents as a toddler and a sibbling also named Sophia was on the ship but no trace has been found of her upon arriving in NZ. A number of children died on the voyage and Sophia may have been one of them. My Comptons settled in Carterton/ masterton area of NZ. Regards joanne Warby nee Hooper.
