RAMPTON Surname Research

My maternal line contains the RAMPTON surname and the family originated in Hampshire, England. Would love to connect to Rampton 'cousins'.

Edward RAMPTON and his wife Elizabeth WILD are my earliest ancestors at this time. Their son Richard married Hannah James.

Richard RAMPTON & Hannah had a son named Edward who married Elizabeth LEAVY.

Edward's son, Christopher (1759-1838) married Dinah BLUNDEN (1759-1819), who was the daughter of John Blunden and Rebecca.

Christopher's son, Anthony (1790- ) married Mary ASH (1795-1871). Their children were:
* James 1815-
* Henry 1817-
* Anthony A. 1824-1917
* Harriet 1827-1916
* Edmund 1929-1899
* Daniel 1833-1910
* Catherine 1835-1888

Harriett married a George Gardner and emmigrated to Australia
Have no info on James and Henry
Anthony and Edmund went to America and landed in Michigan where they became naturalized citizens. Anthony went back for a wife and his parents. Then both brothers and families went to Dysart, Iowa.
Daniel stayed in England to the best of my knowledge
Catherine I believe married after she came to USA, to Moses Fike and settled in Michigan

This is taken from one of the journals/diaries my great-grandfather, Charles Henry RAMPTON kept. He is talking about his father, Edmund RAMPTON and uncle Anthony RAMPTON when they first came to the USA and stayed in Michigan.

Anthony and his brother Edmund built a sod house. Edmund was not married at that time. Anthony went back to England in 1850 and married his sweetheart (Caroline). Saw the Crystal Palace at first World's Exposition on honeymoon.
