Look up in Pallots Baptism index
« on: Saturday 12 November 05 13:23 GMT (UK) »
Please could some kind person see if there is a baptism for George Stansfeld in this index. The one I am looking for was born around 1818 and his parents were George and Margaret Stansfeld. Information about any other of their children would also be very greatly appreciated.

According to the census it was Eynesford, Dartford. However, he may not have been christened there as I believe his parents were in the Hertfordshire area or London.

There is nothing in Pallots baptismal index but are you aware most of the 12 million card slips were detroyed in World War Two, so it is now only a small index of around 200,000 baptisms?

Pallots marriage index survived the war and is much more useful.
There is also nothing on the BVRI

Dear Fran and Valda

Thank you very much for looking. I'll just have to try somewhere else.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help me find my missing link, George Stansfeld.
I confirmed his parentage by means of tracing backwards from a cousin who appeared on the 1881 census lodging with George Stansfeld and his family and by tracing downwards from a Stansfeld marriage settlement downloaded from National Archives.

It was quite a 'journey' but I got there in the end.
