    Little/Greater Brickhill

    Hi, Thanks for your reply. I think Mary is Olive, at least that's how I've got her on my tree. I think it may be the tree that you've seen on ancestry. She was from the Romany Stanley family and was known by either Olive or Mary and has many different birthplaces although she was born in...

    Little/Greater Brickhill

    Hi All. I was wondering if anyone could give me a hand with some relatives I believe to have lived in either of the Brickhills. I am looking for a long time elusive relative Daniel Johnson bc. 1822. I think I have him living in Ham Surrey in 1841 with 3 other Johnsons: James (bc.1791)...

    John Rich (Wilstshire)

    Thank you so much. I did have William and Mary written down provisionally as his parents as when I went to Christian Malford I found their graves next to each other. Knowing there is a bapt record for the right dates that actually links them has made my day. The family do seem to be spread out...

    John Rich (Wilstshire)

    Hi All. I've been researching my 'Rich' ancestors. I'm desperately trying to find some birth details for John Rich (b c.1757 Christian Malford or Dauntsey - Wiltshire ) (d. 1837 - Christian Malford) he married Anne Pinnegar in 1782. I'm pretty sure his grandparents were Charles Rich (d.1759) &...

    Haha, Don't worry about it Romany, Louise is my middle name, so I can answer to both. I thought he was from Kingston-Upon Thames, but I kept confusing myself with Brompton, not sure why. Does that mean he died in a workhouse in 1911? I know he died between 1901 - 1911 but didn't know when or...

    Hi Romany Rose. I fear my actual Stanley branch is too elusive, although I know where Olive Mary was christened, I can't find any marriage records for her and Daniel Johnson which means I'm stuck trying to find any more info on Daniel Johnson and his family. Was he a traveller? I'd love to find...

    I just wanted to add, I'm so glad I started this thread. Romany Rose you have been an Angel with the time you've taken to answer everyone individually. Also the information I've found out has really driven me to research The Stanley's and opened up such a wealth of information!

    Hi Vicki, Glad to hear you're feeling better. Feel free to message me here, via email or ancestry at anytime. I'm not always subscribed to ancestry which means I may not always be able to read the message but I am subscribed for the next few weeks. I'm thinking about joining the Romany and...

    Hi Vicki. You're right about the difficult part, it took me ages to find proof to link my Olive Mary to the rest of the Stanley's. Many times I despaired I would ever be able to find a link. My struggle now is to find info about Peter Stanley and his wife. Apart from baptism records for the...

    Thank you for all your help Romany Rose you've been a Godsend. I'm currently trying to work out whether the Stanley's were Romany or Irish Travellers. My Dad is obsessed with us coming from Ireland but I haven't seen anything to support that claim yet. I'm thinking about becoming a member of...

    Hi. Olive Mary is my ancestor, although in a few of the later censuses she calls herself Mary. I'm interested to find out if her husband's family the Johnsons were a traveller family also as I've seen on the website that Johnson was a traveller name and they are all hawkers and basket makers. I...

    Hi Vicky! Wow just reading the article, it's brilliant. I don't know why but of all my family tree branches the Stanley's have really captured my imagination and I'm desperate to know more about them. I find them fascinating and am really proud of my traveller heritage. My family link comes...
