STANTON and CROSSLEY County Antrim St Anne's Shankill
« on: Monday 14 December 15 18:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I have been researching my STANTON family in the US and found an immigration to New Orleans from Belfast in 1826 for Robert Stanton with wife Elizabeth (CROSSLEY) and two daughters, GeorgeAnn and Eliza.  Then two baptism records were found in County Antrim, St Annes Shankill, one in 25 Jun 1824 for Georgeanna, and one 3 Feb 1826 for Elizabeth.  Is it possible to find a marriage record for Robert Stanton and Elizabeth Crossley?  There are no marriage records for St Anne Shankill on roots ireland.  Could they have married elsewhere? Even before arriving to this area?  Would there be immigration records to Country Antrim from England?  We always thought Robert STANTON was from England.  We do not know his parents or siblings names or why they were in County Antrim and for how long.  Maybe other relatives on the CROSSLEY side?  Any suggestions for further research?  Thank you, and Happy Holiday and New Year to you all,
Judi in Florida

No need to start a new topic- just add to your existing one-

Ireland was part of the U.K. so no records were kept of people travelling between Ireland and England, Scotland & Wales. I've already explained that marriages usually take place in the bride's church, etc.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
