  1. Lots of Stantons from Walsall & West Brom

    While looking for my Stanton ancestors I came across a whole batch of records relating to the Stantons of the West Midlands. If anyone has family ties in this area I have family trees drawn up in 1815 - 1850 and dating back to 1574. If you think this might be your family drop me a line.
