I am trying to find out any information regarding my Great Grandfather James Standen, who was born as far as I know in the St Leonards / Hastings area of Sussex. I do not know the date of his birth or death. He married Eliza Barstead. No dates Eliza was born in 1832, and died on the 11-12-1910. If anyone can help, I would be most grateful with anything to do with the Standen family in the Sussex area. Dot Akehurst
