Hi
Digger was my Great Grandfather on my mother’s side. My Grandmother was Daisy Kathleen Stanley, Diggers daughter. I would like to contact any other relatives of Diggers. Thanks

Hey,

I was told by my Granddad today that we are distantly related to the boxer Digger Stanley, my Great Great Grandmother was apparently related to him. Her name was Mabel Lamb, Smith was her maiden name. Her Husband was Riley Lamb - I wondered if anyone on this thread know those names and how they were related? Thanks!

Yet another Digger Stanley descendant question. Is anyone is aware of another child of Dahlia/Daylia Stanley? I am trying to determine if my great grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Burrows, is Digger's granddaughter. She was "Gypsy" (didn't use the word Roma), and may have been born around 1887-1890, possibly in Ponytpool, Monmouthshire, Wales.

I've read through the posts on this topic, and don't see this question. My apologies if I just overlooked something. Sarah Elizabeth was:
•   Documented to have lived in the Coed e Gric aka Griffithstown poorhouse (in 1911 and 1939).
•   Documented to have died there in 1953.
•   DNA appears to indicate a relationship with Stanleys, and Coopers.
•   DNA appears to indicate a Berrows/Burrows, Matthews/Mathews, Couzens, Parsons relationship.
•   There is only person, Allen Burrows, who I can find as a bridge between those families.
•   Per electoral registers, Allen Burrows lived together with Dahlia/Daylia Stanley after her children with William Rose were born.
•   However, Sarah Elizabeth was born before Dahlia’s children with William Rose.
•   And, depending on the actual birth year, Dahlia may have been pretty young to have children when Sarah Elizabeth was born.

Thoughts? Insights? I’ve gotten to the proverbial brick wall!

I'm posting a similar question to this in the Roma board as well – I hope that isn't violating any rules.
Best,
Jan
