Birth record for Herbert H E Stanton
« on: Monday 04 February 19 12:09 GMT (UK) »
Am looking for records for Herbert H E Stanton Born in Lanarkshire in 1887.  His parents were John Stanton b 1863 and Agnes Stanton nee Brown b 1866. 

Their first born was William John Stanton b 27 May 1886.

Help would be appreciated.

www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk is the only site you will find that information.  It is a pay per view site but the index is free.  John & Agnes married 1886 and both the marriage & birth of William John are shown on SP

No 1891/1901 entry for Herbert and no birth on SP so where did you get his details from?

John and Agnes married in Calton didtrict and that is where William John was also born. There is a birth of a Michael Stanton in Calton in 1887. I wonder if that is him and he has changed his name subsequently.

From one of your earlier posts was Herbert Harry Edgar HANKS b. C1895 South Africa not a son of Agnes Brown's second marriage ?

Hi Ev

There were rumours that Herbert Harry Edgar may have been Harry Hanks' son but we are not sure .... thus looking for his birthdate.  Harry & Agnes' three girls were born in South Africa in 1899, 1900 & 1903.   They married in Australia in 7Sept1893. 

Herbert died in South Africa in 1911 .

None of that ties in with an 1887 or 1895 birth year.  If he was aged 11 when he died in 1911 then he was born around 1899/1900 after the 1893 marriage.  However - that birth year does not fit into the birth years you give for the daughters

Perhaps you need to check your dates - particularly Herbert's age when he died

Ev you are so correct!!   

Herbert died in South Africa at age 16 which would make his birth date 1895.   If Harry & Agnes were married in Australia in 1893 he would definitely be Herbert Edgar Harry Hanks  and not a Stanton.  This would explain a passage with Agnes Stanton and William Stanton without Herbert in 1893 from London to Sydney.

This means Herbert may have in fact been born in Australia!   

Sorry for the confusion sometimes you can see for looking,  back to the drawing board.

And if Agnes married Hanks in 1893 then Herbert was clearly a Hanks and not a Stanton

Presumably his death shows him as Hanks - not Stanton?

The only record we can find of him says Herbert H E Hanks (death record in South Africa) but her first son to Stanton changed his surname to Hanks so there was always a question mark.
