Hi Ann
This time I have found a John Standen living in Goosnargh with children Richard, Brigg and William.these were born there but John does not appear in the Baptismal records it looks like he came from somewhere else. In which case who was his parents.

As this obviously relates to previous threads, you need to add it there...not start yet another one about this family

Huge amounts of research have been done on this family in the past

Jean has deleted all the threads on which the info was posted


Jean Report 10 Jun 2013 11:59

Yes I now know how have upset the many people who have been helping me and all I can say I am extremely sorry for being such a fool and dont deserve you.


Reggie Report 10 Jun 2013 13:08

OK................clean slate.........

But please don't delete in future............the info doesn't take up any space on your computer.

Now, what are you looking for?

In which record have you 'found' per your opening post?


Jean Report 11 Jun 2013 13:44

I originally looked for a John Standen who was born in Hapton which is between Accrington and Burnley in 1791 he married a Dinah Ingham abt 1811 in Padiham There is a church at Hapton but the records dont go that far back so it wont give him or his parents.


Reggie Report 11 Jun 2013 16:49

I remember giving you details about the church.......and its origins

Have you used that info to search?

Did you take notice of the date when the Hapton Church was opened?

You've had so many threads about sundry Standens/Standings it's difficult to keep track

Is the Standen/Ingham marriage your PROVEN direct line?

Please read carefully................

St Margaret, Manchester Road, Hapton, BB11 5RH
St Margaret is located at OS Grid Reference - SD 792315
Founded: 1914
See the Church website


Jean Report 14 Jun 2013 11:15

Yes I have noticed that the Hapton Church was not in service in the 1700/1800s so the Standens from Hapton must have been baptized elsewhere. I am told by someone that in those days the vicar did the rounds of the various churches and it depended on where he was and that was were you would be baptised at.
