Ancestry of Richard Stanton of Barbados
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 02:08 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to ascertain the ancestry of Richard Stanton (cir 1681-1750) who was born & died in Barbados, as he is probably an ancestor of my wife through the 1792 union of Sarah Stanton (1767-1794) & Richard Austin.  Sarah is descended from Richard Stanton through Dr Daniel Stanton & Wiltshire Stanton (her father).   Richard Stanton of the parish of St George left a will dated 25 June 1750.
Some researchers believe Richard's father was Daniel, a son of Thomas Stanton (1613-1677), the co-founder of firstly Hartford then Stonington, both towns in Connecticut, but the evidence is not strong, particularly as Richard is not mentioned in what is presumed to be Daniel's will of 1 June 1681, and I say presumed as the document has been transcribed as that of Darrel Stanton.
If this Richard is not a grand-son of Thomas Stanton, who was his father?
Were there more than one Daniel Stanton in Barbados in the second half of the 17th century?
