how to create free website


During the coming months this website will be populated with the results of years spent researching my paternal ancestry and the roots of the  Stansfield family. This is an 'organic' project which will continue to evolve as research continues, so please check regularly for updated material.

My own direct line goes back to the early 1500s, when a 'brick wall' prevents me connecting with the roots of the Stansfield family which go back to Domesday. Evidence is supported by original records wherever possible.

  Finally, since early 2013, I have been in constant collaboration with
Joanne Backhouse nee Stansfield, a researcher with specialist
knowledge of the Stansfields and the Calderdale area, and
Contributor to the Calderdale Companion. Thanks Jo.

My thanks to researcher Joanne Backhouse for her collaboration and guidance regarding the Stansfeld family and Calderdale.
