I saw your post on Stafford Gaol in a Google search. I too am researching John Stanton and thought that we might share information. I have some details of John's prison record, which no doubt you have yourself by now, and that both his brother and his sister also worked there. At present I have his family line going back to 1675 with the marriage of George Stanton and Dorothy James at Lichfield. Any stories or background details would be most welcome.
