Stannard family - Hartismere Suffolk

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Sally Report 5 Apr 2013 11:25

I am looking for info on the family of Alfred W J Stannard born 1912 Hartismere, I have found he was married to Christina E G Coe in 1937 in Gipping Suffolk.
I think they had one son, Robert in 1943, I can't find a marriage or death for Robert, is it me being thick ??? :-S

I am trying to find info on his brother - Reginald A Stannard born 1921 in Hartismere, the only trouble is there seem to be two Reginalds married, one to a Evelyn SHIPPEY in 1944 Gipping - and one to Marjorie M P Denny in 1951 Gipping. at the moment I lean towards the later one but I know I need the certs.
Any help, advice, guess or anything would be great, I just thought, did he marry twice, I haven't looked at that !!!!!!

The parents of the "boys" were James William Stannard and Alice Maud.

The two marriages for Reginald could be for the same man..............


Sally Report 5 Apr 2013 14:24

Hi Reggie,
Thanks for your reply, yes I did wonder, I have looked but can't find any children for him.
It's not you is it ??????? :-)
Reginald and Alfred had a foster brother, he stayed with them for about 11 years.
My friend is trying to find any of the Stannard family.

There are 3 entries for Robert W(illiam) Stannard on

One of them - electoral roll 2002-6 - has a Susan Elizabeth Stannard listed at the same address.

For full details, you'd need to buy credits. If they are listed on FMP, someone may be willing to look them up on your behalf with their subscription.


ErikaH Report 5 Apr 2013 17:24

Not on FMP


ErikaH Report 5 Apr 2013 17:25

Reginald's death cert may prove informative

And not every couple who marry produce children............just as well, the world is crowded!

Also, if the 1951 marriage was a second for Reginald, it could have been a second for the woman he married, in which case the MMN would not be the name under which she married him.
