Notes 
  • There are two William Comptons which have been wishfully confused, Willliam of Gravesend in New Amsterdam and SIr WIlliam (this one) son of Earl Spencer Compton. Because Sir William was a Royalist, friend of the king, he was actually on the death list of Cromwell. So it was supposed that he might have gone to Colonies to escape and this allowed a Wishful connection of Wm of Gravesend to the Noble line of Earl Spencer... wishful but not possible. Wm of gravesend was born 1621-1622 by deposition Sep 1652 in which he says he is 30 years old. SIr william was defending Branbury Castle at age 19 in Oct 1644 into 1645 hence born 1624-25. Worse in 1645 at the same time Sir Wm as known to be/@/ Branbury WIlliam of Gravesend was given a patent of land at Gravesend.. two very different places -by 3000 long ocean miles- same time. They are different people. Thus this common but wishful link of not true.
