Each generation of siblings is represented by the same number. The person
who is the direct ancestor (and the parent of the next generation) is given
in CAPITALS at the end of each generation, regardless of his birth order
in the family. Letters in ( ) are coded to notes at the end of the info.

                          SOURCES AND NOTES:

The majority of the above information has been taken from the following two
sources. Individual notes follow.

. St. Erth, Cornwall, Parish Register, LDS film #1595497.
. St. Uny Lelant, Cornwall, Parish Register, LDS film #1595781.

         Notes coded to letters ( ) in body of info:

a. P.C.C., 1655, folio 446, Will of Edward Hamton, dyer, of St. Erth, dp.
   28 Nov. 1655. Written 7 Feb. 1654/5. Names wife Ellinor; grandchildren--
   sons and daughters of James Hamton; son Robert Hamton; sisters-in-law
   Ann Winch and Frances Kent.

b. Date from St. Erth P.R. Surname not given. Will of Christopher Cock, gent,
   of Helston (Archdeaconry of Cornwall, AP/C/1812, dp. 28 July 1679) mentions
   daughter Ann Hampton, and leaves legacies to each of her six children,
   given as the children of "Robert Hampton of St. Erth."

c. St. Erth P.R. Age 86 years.

d. Elizabeth Bennatts was the widow of Thomas Bennatts of Lelant,
   and the mother of Amy Bennatts who married Robert's son James.

e. St. Erth P.R. "....killed at wheal fortune." Apparently a mining 

f. That Edward was the same man who married both Dwens and Elinor is proven
   from the fact that Edward's childless sister-in-law, Frances Kent, did 
   not name James Hampton or his children in her will. Since she left lagacies 
   to each of her brothers and their children, and to her nephew Robert and 
   his 3 children, the fact that James was not mentioned certainly proves that 
   she had no nephew James; ie: that James Hampton was not the son of Elinor, 
   but of an earlier marriage of Edward. Edward in his 1655 will states that 
   James had "sons and daughters," so he must have had at least 4 children 
   by that time. Had he been the son of Elinor, then there should have been
   some record of this James and his family at St. Erth or Lelant. But the 
   only James found was at Lelant and had children born in the 1620s and 1630s,
   including a son Edward and a daughter Dwens. This James is obviously a son 
   of the Edward Hampton/Dwens marriage, and must be the son referred to in 
   Edward's will. Edward must have been married to Dwens quite young (about 21), 
   and married Elinor as a second wife in his late 40s.  

g. St. Erth P.R. This child is recorded as a daughter of ROBERT Hampton,
   but the only Robert in the parish at the time was James' father, twice 
   widowed. Unless Robert had an unknown, third wife, then this child
   was probably the daughter of James, and the clerk made an error when
   recording the entry (this happens with some frequency). The only other
   explanation for this entry is that the elder Robert and wife Grace had
   another son Robert (no christening recorded) who may have had a child
   baptized at St. Erth. However, there is no marriage or death found for
   another Robert.

h. St. Uny Lelant P.R.: Banns called 11, 18 and 25 May 1760. Robert and Jane, 
   apparently both illiterate, signed with their marks, Robert with an "R,"
   Jane with an "H." Witnesses were Richard Hawes, the bride's father and 
   also parish clerk, and Samuel Uren.

i. Lelant P.R.: Edward Richards, base child of Jane Hampton was christened
   3 Oct 1790 and buried 6 Jul 1791. Jane married the father of the child
   nine years later. Witness was Robert Hampton, probably Jane's brother,
   who was later parish clerk.

j. International Genealogical Index, England, Cornwall.

k. Thomas' wife was his first cousin, and sister to his brother John's wife.
   Thomas and Gertrude had five children, but none lived to adulthood.

l. Lelant P.R.: Banns called 7, 14 and 28 October 1804. John and Catherine
   both signed with an "O." Witnesses were Catherine Hawes, the bride's 
   mother, and Jane White.

m. Edwin Hampton, base son of Eliza Hampton, was christened 13 June 1858
   at Madron, and buried 8 July 1859 at Lelant, residence given as Balnoon.

n. State of Pennsylvania Death Certificate of Joseph Hampton (file #35913,
   18 April 1914) gives his date of birth as 13 June 1845, but as he was
   christened in July 1844, it is obviously off by one year. His birthplace
   is listed as England and his parents as John Hampton and Eliza Glasson.
   U.S. Civil War Pension application #191899, for the minor children of
   William and Sophia Marr (Joseph's stepchildren) gives the date and
   place of his marriage to Sophia.

o. State of Victoria Death Certificate #370, 29 Nov 1915, John Hampton.

p. St. Uny Lelant, Bishop's Transcripts, Cornish Studies Library, Redruth.

   Note: Elinor's parents are still unknown. Her siblings were Frances m.
   William Kent, Ann m. Thomas Winch, James, Anthony and Walter Tresise.
   The will of Frances Kent (Archdeaconry of Cornwall, AP/K/286, dp. 26 Feb
   1669/70) names the three brothers, and names "cousin" (ie: nephew) Robert
   Hampton of St. Erth, and his children, with Robert's eldest son Edward as
   the residual legatee.

q. Charles G. Henderson, "Calendars of Cornish Manuscripts" Vol. 30, pp.
   238 and 240. Painter Deeds, #44 and #52. Robert Hampton is listed as
   a resident of Lanuthnoe in St. Erth in 1661 and 1676.

r. The 1662 and 1664 Hearth Tax for Lelant shows Edward Hampton (son of 
   James) and Frances Hampton, widow, together. Since Edward named a 
   daughter Frances, this is probably his mother.

s. Perhaps the Mary Hampton who married John Lanyon on 22 April 1710 at

t. Samuel Blight and Elizabeth Vivian were married at St. Erth on 
   18 August 1746. Samuel was buried on 27 Feb 1747/8.

u. State of Victoria Marriage Certificate #4104, 24 Dec 1874, John Hampton 
   & Elizabeth James.
