Lisa, First of all, there were not two different William Comptons. There is only one. He was born, if we can beleive the deposition of 29 Sept. 1652 where he stated that he was 30 years old. This would put his birth as between 30 Sept 1622 and 30 Sept 1623. He was born sometime in that time frame. He was supposed to be English, but lived among the Dutch. He apparently died about 1694 in Gravesend, Long Island, New York. There was another William Compton born about 1644, who was the son of William Compton of Gravesend, New York. He died about 1709 in Middleton, Monmouth County, New Jersey. He apparently married Mary Bowne, supposedly the daughter of William Bowne. Hope this helps.
