Your request is far too vague. You must give us some info

Please also tell us what research you have done yourself - for instance, have you looked at passenger lists on either of the main genealogy websites?

Have you looked at US census records on familysearch?

Bev I believe it was on another thread will try and find it, but also look in your messages I think I sent it to you as did another member when you posted before.

add, no can't find it so maybe not in a message. I may be mixing it up with a query on another family member.

There's loads of threads, and I have messages re most of the Standens but not seeing the one re USA


ArgyllGran Report 3 Sep 2019 12:10

On Ancestry -

the earliest arrival of a Standen in the USA from UK is in 1849.
There's a Standon in 1848. Also three Stanten children (probably brothers) in 1846, but they're Irish.

The most recent Standen arrival showing on Ancestry was in 1957.

Where ages are given, they range from 1840 to 1935.

How do you know that any of your Standens went to the USA?
Do you have relatives there now?
Are you going by a DNA result?


ErikaH Report 3 Sep 2019 12:19

I wasted my time looking up the info - it's all been provided on other threads, of which there are more than the two highlighted above.


Rambling Report 3 Sep 2019 14:33

Bev, you have put on your tree here an Alan Standen bn Sydney 1929 and an Andrew bn 1958, If you have got them from other online trees, who are they descended from, as all the Standen's mentioned so far on your threads are in England.

Please bear in mind when looking at other people's trees that because it is the same surname it does NOT mean they are in any way related, see the origin of surname here


Rambling Report 3 Sep 2019 16:57

Bev , It does seem that you have added to your tree this family:

Ellen Standen
Born 17 Nov 1849 in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia

father and grandfather from Goudhurst Kent,

Some of the first names are the same, ie William and Samuel and John but the dates and place of birth in England do not match with what you sent me in a previous message, or with the Standen family we know to be definitely yours on the census in Portslade Sussex as per the threads.
