      Information on Smith family from email from Brian Wollaston August 04
      Hello Mark,

      I have found your interests in the Stanton and Bown families through the S&DFHS website.

      James Stanton and Mary Ann Bown are my 2 x gt grand parents through Sarah Ann Stanton, a sister to William John Stanton who I presume is your ancestor..

      I have for some time been trying to find Mary Ann Bown's father's death/burial as information about him is a bit sparse. Also I cannot find him in the 1841 census. I would like to have some confirmation of his age to see if the one I have found being baptised in Fleet in 1791 is really him. If it is, then there could be an interesting link as his mother's maiden name was Lovell.

      Do you have any info on that side of the family?

      You may wish to have a look at my web site at www.wollastonb.co.uk

      Best wishes

      Brian Wollaston
