George Crompton Mansfield Lancashire England to Hamilton New Zealand

Journal by jamo761

This is a journal entry about my Grandfather. I did not know him as he died before my parents were married. He has an interesting life, and like his mother whom I will write a separate journal for, had many marriages.

If anyone has any further information about George or any of his wives, I would greatly appreciate your comments & information.

George Crompton Mansfield
Born: Feb 1894 in Pendleton, Lancashire, England
Died: 3 Nov 1962 Hamilton, Waitako, New Zealand

George Crompton Mansfield was born in Pendleton, Lancashire, England to parents Lucy Dawson & George Crompton. Although George has the surname Mansfield, he is from what I can tell George\'s son. Lucy married three times, the second time to Richard Mansfield.

Sorry meant to add this is the information you need for his birth certificate

Thanks Margaret,

I actually need to update this journal, I requested his birth certificate and have received it. Interesting part is that there is no father named on the birth record. I'm assuming that this was because Lily was not married to George at the time of the three boys births. She didn't married George until much later, 1911 I think. I have her marriage certificate to George.

Hi Megan, I have a few of those in my family my G G Grandmother had 5 children with "no" fathers and she lived with her brother. Not sure what to make of that a very loose woman I think.
