Thanks for that - not sure if this right as have no family info on Sarah beyond a note that her father came from Yorkshire. I thought they were farmers as my grandmother was raised near Boggyburn so not sure about the boatman occupation. How did you find the link between Sarah and her parents? Rosie

Hi Rosie: Some info came from ancestry.ca and more from www.family search.org.
Plus rootsweb. I found a family tree where it had most of the stanway's listed.
I will see if I can obtain the site for you. Until later..M.
Plus with the info you just gave me I will search on with that in the meantime.
