The Stanger Families;

and related Families

"Our" Stanger Families originated in the Area around Harringworth in Northamptonshire and Barrowden [just across the Border] in Rutland.

                  HEAR YE, HEAR YE, HEAR YE! !!!
            I believe that we have now linked the Harringworth [previously commencing with Thomas] and Barrowden Stangers. the Thomas Stanger [of Harringworth] now commences a Generation earlier, with [another] Humphrey Stanger, who was born in Harringworth, circa 1570, so this combined Stanger Family is now made up of 3872 Individuals; and great thanks must be given to all the hard Work that has been put in by Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale and Ken Stanger over the recent Months, and to Gerry Stanger, whose brief File provided the Link between the 2 Families. While I believe we have found this Link, I have still not received Confirmation from either Joyce, Ken or Gerry. I shall leave the previous Thomas and Humphrey Pages as they were for the time being.
The Combined Harringworth/Barrowden Stanger Family has been added after receiving Information ad detailed above in November 2012.
AND, now in October 2013, following Months of Research and Work by Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale and Ken Stanger, with recent Assistance from two new Members of the Stanger Clan,
Maureen [Duggan] Stanger and Sheila [Watson] Barta, the combined Stanger Pages have again been updated, with additional Families added [see Foot of Page],
and, now, in May 2015, following another Blizzard of e-Mails back and forth from the Stanger Family Researchers, the Stanger Tree has again been updated.

          They commence with the Family of Thomas Stanger, the Family of one of my Paternal Great-Great-Grandmothers. Thomas was born in 1638 in Harringworth, Northamptonshire.

The Thomas Stanger Family has been updated after receiving Information from Antonia [Stanger] Hart in October 2010.
and as a result of Research by Lisa Nap in 2008 and more in November 2010, the Thomas Stanger Family has been again updated in July 2011;
and, again in January 2012, along with the Nathan Hurst Family [below] following more Information from Helen [Haines] Bones.
Now, in September, 2012, following more Work by Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale and Ken Stanger, we have again updated the Thomas Stanger WebPages.

          Belatedly, in September 2011, the Family of Nathan Hurst has been added. Nathan's Grand-Daughter, Mary, married into the Family of Thomas Stanger in 1844.
          AND, even more belatedly, in December 2011, the Family of George Yorke has been added. George's Grand-Daughter Rebecca married into the Stanger Family; and his other Grand-Daughter, Ann married Robert Clark, a Family for whom we are still awaiting further Information. The Yorke Family also link with the Cautherley Family, who are a part of the Blanchard Family.

         AND, in May, 2018, even more belatedly, the Family of Wilfred Pickering has been added. Wilfred married into the Stanger Family when he married Mary Jane Stanger in 1870 in Seaton, Rutland. Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale has been one of the Stalwarts of Stanger Research, and her Pickering/Trousdale Family should have been added long before this. I apologize for the Oversight. [Howard Smith, May 06, 2018]

          In September 2009, Sandra Boudrou has shared with us her findings on the Family of Richard Dent. Richard probably came from Haugham in Lincolnshire; but moved his Family to Maltby Le Marsh [also in Lincs.] where they appear to have lived for the next few Generations.
The Dent Family has been added to the WebSite on December the 2nd, 2009.

           Ken Stanger, in Yandina, in Queensland, in the Land of OZ helped greatly with the early compilation of this Stanger Family; and may have more Information. Ken, however, is not part of the Thomas Stanger Family.
          Ken's Stangers, the Family of Humphrey Stanger, born about 1658, originated in Barrowden, in Rutland, only a few Miles from where the Thomas Stanger Family had their Origins in Harringworth, in Northamptonshire. We are still seeking a link between the two Families.
The Humphrey Stanger Family has been updated in February 2012 after receiving Information from Brian Roy Johnstone.
and, again in May 2012 following further Information from Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale
Now, in September, 2012, following more Work by Joyce [Pickering] Trousdale and Ken Stanger, we have again updated the Humphrey Stanger WebPages.

          The Family of George William Wade, who married into the Humphrey Stanger Family in 17945 in Barrowden.
The Wade Family has been added on November the 28th, 2009.

          NOW, in November, 2009, Keith Martin, of Preston in Lancs., while researching his own Stanger Family Connections has assembled a further Stanger Family. This Family, who lived in Castor in Cambridgeshire had as its Patriach, John Stanger, circa 1710. This John may be the eldest Son of John Stanger and Elizabeth Oliver who are a part of the Humphrey Stanger Family. He was born about 1714 in Barrowden.
