All the names in bold type I know about, I would like to know who the others are and what relationship to others on this list,  can anyone connect to any of these persons


Abit more information about above persons : Levi Stanley , who's father was Owen Stanley & mother Harriet Wordon, her parents were Fanny Stanley & John Wharton

 Married Matilda Joles, her father was Ephraim Joles all from England


 They came form Reading Berkshire area  to USA in 1856 with families.

 The extended families of Levi  Stanley can be found in  New York,IIIinois,Mississippi, Tennessee,, Arkansas, Ohio.

Levi Stanley & Brother Benjamin Skinner Stanley came over to USA in 1854 went back in 1856 to get their parents returned to USA

Benjamin Skinner Stanley married Mary Hicks

Elizabeth Skinner Stanley  (Sister of above)married Cornelius Hicks

 The Hicks family settled in Masshusetts USA

If anyone can help me to connect this huge family would be appreciated the main thing is I don't know if they all stayed in USA or returned to England.


My own family above the BUCKLAND some did stay, some came back to England .I know Tenant & Keziah  Buckland and several of their children  went over came back again  many times.

Last time they went to USA was in 1904 on the  SS Carpathia they then stayed there and died in USA buried in Grove Church Cemetery New Jersey.

I have found relations in USA to confirm this and  USA Census records that show the family  were in 1910 & 1930 in USA

Tenett & Keziah Buckland first child was Trypena born 1852 St Blazey Cornwall, she must have died as no mention of her on this passenger list.

 They then had a daughter Edith Buckland born 1853 , she married Wisdom Smith in Bromsgrove 1872, she died in 1891 27th July aged 38 buried in Honiton Devon, puzzled she isn't mentioned on list either.

Nelson Buckland who is listed was my Great grandfather he married Betsey Smith 1874 Plymouth , her father was James Smith .

 Nelson went again with Tenant & Keziah to USA in 1886 on the SS Teutonic , ( another passenger list I must try to get a full one ) then returned about 1890 , the reason I say that date is because my grandfather Jim & his brother Moses were both born in USA 1887 & 1889

When he returned his family settled in Kingsbridge Devon and  he died in 1908.




A lovely Lady Sandra Buckland has sent the information regarding the Buckland family, and passenger list's and would like any help in connecting any family members, and any more information you folks out there may have .Hopefully Sandy can piece all the missing pieces together .Sandy has also sent in some lovely family pictures thanks Sandy your a star!!(All photos copyright of the owner)
