  A. John Crompton of Prestolee & London
  Mundy's Middlesex Pedigrees (1912, Crompton), which starts with this John and then provides just a little support for the next 2 generations, identifies John as 'of London' and his wife as Anne, dau of Raffe Ashton of Greate Leaver. The Crompton web site identifies her as Eleanor, dau of Ralph Assheton of Gt. Lever. The Assheton records show an Anne but not an Eleanor as a daughter of the Ralph who is probably of the relevant generation.
