Samuel Crompton: An Overview

My knowledge of Samuel Crompton comes from information supplied to me by Sheila Howells who has researched this from many sources including the Crompton Papers in the Derby Local History Library.  Also his portrait by Joseph Wright of Derby was sold at Sotheby's in London, 9 July 1997.

I think Samuel was Mayor of Derby in 1767 and was followed two years later in 1769 by Thomas Stamford (1712-1787) who was the husband of Samuel's cousin.  Samuel became High Sherrif of Derbyshire in 1768 and was also Receiver General of Derbyshire.

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