Jeanie was born around 1880 in New Monkland, Lanarkshire from what I can find on census.

Jeanie married Hugh Keenan and had 3 children Hugh, William and John (my grandfather) in the early 1900's.

Her parents were William and Isabella Stanners born in Bo'ness, Linlithgowshire.

I've found William Stanner's mother was Janet but can't seem to find his father.

Hope that helps - if you need anymore info please let me know.

Thanks!

Looks like the family, thank you.

I just can't seem to find anything that links Jeanie to Hugh Keenan.

Brydeep,

Hugh and Jean's wedding certificate is on Scotlandspeople. They were married in Dunfermline in 1903. Both Hugh and his father John Keenan were bakers btw.

As you correctly say, Jeanie's parents were William Stanners and Isabella Seith. Isabella's ancestry can be traced from the website I gave you in the previous post.

I think both William Stanners and Isabella Seith may be buried in Polmont - see http://www.memento-mori.co.uk/53.pdf.

William and Isabella's marriage cert is also on Scotlandspeople. They were married in 1862 in Carriden, Bo'ness. The cert lists William's parents as Gilbert Stanners and Janet Williamson.

This means that William Stanners was the brother of Thomas Stanners (who married Christina McCallum) the ancestors of Meggy1 and Helensj (see page 1)- you are close relations!

Further - we can positively trace Gilbert back through James Stanners b. 1791, James Stanners b. 1753 to Malcolm Stanners born circa 1716.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need further info?

Thank you so much, that information has helped me a lot!

That's great to find out I have relatives on here!

Thanks,

Hi Alan thanks for the message!

Brydeep, you are certainly related to Helen and myself! If you would like to send me an email address, we can swap notes, although I'm not as knowledgable as Alan!
