    Status: . If you go to Weymouth Cemetery and enter from the Abbotsbury Road you will be in the Holy Trinity section and before you will be the little chapel, now used as a store. Just to the left and on the road side of the chapel you should find James Stanton, now standing upright and a little cleaner than before. (Brian Wollaston 2005)
     
  • Notes 
    • 02/15
      Mariner certificate confirms John STANTON's (James' brother) birthdate as 14 Feb 1818. Unlikely an important document would have this wrong. This also ties in with the 1861 census age. Appears that the baptism record for the christening of "John", where he appears with "James" must have been a previous "John" (who didn't survive).

      07/11
      Unable to locate James STANTON or his family on the 1851 or 1861 census.
