    Hayley, I have just been looking at the Simmons/Marshall family tree on Ancestry and I think there's something on there which will help with your Olive/Mary Stanley to Daniel Johnson connection. There's a woman called Lucy Johnson, 1865-1953 and there's some details about her birth certificate...

    Ahhhhhhh Peter and Rebecca Stanley.................I have searched for over 2 years to find out more about those two and have drawn a complete blank, so can I too could jump on that bandwagon? These guys seem to have been based largely around Putney/Croydon. If they did marry, which is often...

    Pheweee! V :-) Romany Rose, do you realise I have just spent hours putting everything into my Ancestry tree! I have to say a HUGE thank you, you've been brilliant. Funny to come across the Reeves being tied into the Stanley branch of the tree. I'm sure you all remember the furniture store which...

    I think there's a little bit of confusion with regards to Rebecca Wellings. Rebecca Wellings was married to Diverus Stanley and they had 3 children together. Sophia(1840) Frances (1842) & Moses (1844) She is not his mother and was not married to his father Peter. I have the birth certificates...

    Hey hloiuse, I'm sure that I read somewhere that the name Diverus is a Romany name, although that said I have just tried to google it and found nothing to support that claim. It's funny what families convince theirselves of. My sister was so sure that we came from a land far away, and poor...

    Romany Rose, Before you step away, do you know anything about the Wellings family by chance? I have, for what feels like an eternity, got completely stuck at Rebecca Wellings, 1st wife of Diverus Stanley. It seems that Rebecca Wellings, and 2 of her children Frances (female) and Moses just...

    The Stanley's do appear to be a colourful bunch :-) Diverous, your god knows how many great uncle's, my 2nd or 3rd great grandfather was a very naughty boy! He ended up in prison a couple of times. I am not surprised though, the poor sods seem to lead a very hand to mouth existence and he...

    Pheweeeee! I have had a real time of it with the Stanley family.....I'm glad I appear to onto the right track. Diverus Stanley did have 3 children with Rebecca Wellings and I have 2 of the birth certificates showing this (Moses & Sophia). My family comes down through Sophia Stanley. I have her...
