Peter Standley attempted to buy his father's 100A estate at Cranberry Island [27th May 1793] during the Probate Court process. Evidently he could not raise the money and the lot went to Samuel Hadlock.
Peter Stanley sold his home lot at Southwest Harbor, Maine, to Thomas Newman, and acknowledged the deed on 20 July 1846. ["...Lot # 43...being the lot on witch I now live..."]
"The old-fashioned house on the right, opposite the Kimball place, was built by Peter Stanley whose first house was on this same lot near the shore. About 1840 the present house was built and was the home of the family for three generations. In 1935 it was purchased of the Stanley heirs by Harry E. Bennett who now lives there. The mill stones used as front doorsteps at the cottage at Femald Point owned by Mrs. Louise Fernald Goulding, were used for grinding grain at the old Peter Stanley home. Sans Stanley, a brother of Peter, gave them to Daniel Femald and thus they became the property of the Fernald family." page 182
