Married Judith Lawrence. I have just now began to research the children of this couple. So far I have Judith Stanley and Dancy Stanley.

I wrote a large amount to England and to the State of Maryland. I am, along with them, positive of the results. However, another person has informed me I have been "fanciful" and John did not come from the people my sources have confirmed to me. So, I leave it up to someone else to prove and it has been sent to other genologist's to do what they want. It is not easy to convince someone who is not willing to look at the many records I obtained and I was not too willing to go any further anyway.

He was listed as the youngest son on Lady Beauford's family tree but this is not true as I have found,so as not a older son he was of no value to them, James Stanley, 7th Earl of Stanley and Charlotte de la Tremollie. His father was beheaded by the Crown, the title and lands went to the first son and so forth. One of his Grandmothers, Lady Joan Beaufort left a family tree and John was on that list as going to Maryland and becoming Surveyor General of Maryland Colony in 1684. Who actually kept the tree uptodate is unknown to me. That was published in the Maryland's Historical Magazine. He actually arrived in "America" in 1653 and is found in "Early Immigrants to Maryland"---Matthews American Amory & Blue Book--Decendants of Lady Joan Beaufort, published in The Family Forest, New Word Edition 1998-2005--listed as Major John Stanley, in service to the Crown and also Surveyor of Colony Maryland--a Bio of James Gordon Stanley by Mary Kinney gives his lineage back thru John Stanley to Lady Joan Beaufort.

I have been told all this and more, were just fanciful. And old term for sure. This was by someone else that has claimed to be from another of James the 7th's children.Only recently that my John had a speech impediment and was kept out of the pubic view was found, So glad we no longer view that as shameful.

To be very honest, I am really only interested in family that is born in this world, not the old world and ones that have worked hard to get where ever they are in life.

Up until Nancy and James Perry Wallace, all remained in Maryland. They went to Ohio and then to Missouri.

There are many more records on John Stanley


"Stanley Line" 1-James 7th EARL of STANEY 1606-1651 m. Charlotte del la Tremoile 1599-1664

2-William 6th EARL of STANLEY 1561-1642 m. Elizabeth de Vere 1575-1626

3-Henry 4th Earl of STANLEY 1531-1593 m. Lady Margaret Clifford 1540-1596

4-Edward 3rd Earl of STANLEY 1531-1593 m. Dorothy Howard 1511-1589

5-Thomas 1st Earl of STANLEY 1485-1521 m. Ann Hastings

The wives were all titled women but I will leave it to others to find them. Lots of Royals here.

Parents were: FAG 82824675 Father FAG 82827107 However, I will not connect him to them for reasons stated above. I do not need the insults!

However, these people were nothing to brag about. By todays standards, they put the Royal family in England today to shame with the things they did. Your sister did not marry unless there was land or money to be had. Our poor Mary Tudor is a prime example. Her brother Henry VIII practically sold her to the King of France and then the poor girl did not provide a heir for the throne so when her husband died, she was sent back to England. We even have one Grandfather that was beheaded along with King Charles. Now really, who would want to claim all that???

I can find no reliable source that lists John as one of the children of James Stanley, 7th Earl of Derby and his wife Lady Charlotte,

Unless a source is found, he should be removed as their child.
