Samuel Crompton: An Overview

My knowledge of Samuel Crompton comes from:
1. Information supplied to me by Sheila Howells who has researched this from many sources including the Crompton Papers in the Derby Local History Library.
2. A 1747 Almanack owned by Hannah Stamford (nee Crompton, 1720-1788).
3. A notebook of dates written by his sister Elizabeth.

If anybody would like to type up a biography for me I would be very pleased to hear from you.
