Earliest Known Stanger Ancestor: b. 1658, Barrowden, Rutland. Descent is via John (baptised 1686 Barrowden, m. 1712 Thorpe Malsor, Northants), Thomas (baptised 1723 Barrowden, m. Elizabeth Mason 1746 Seaton, Rutland), John (baptised 1747 Seaton, m. Mary Pickering 1776 Seaton), William (baptised 1794 Seaton, m.

General Information
Many of the Stangers were stone masons, one result of which is that their gravestones at Seaton are generally still in very good condition! Frederick Stanger in particular was parish clerk and shopkeeper - as well as a stone mason.

Fellow Researchers & Family Branches
There are several people researching this Stanger family to whom I am indebted for much of the information on my tree. As a result, I am now in touch with Stanger cousins across the world. Not bad considering that I had never heard of the name until I started looking into my family history.

Next Steps
1. Look for baptism of Elizabeth Oliver, perhaps in Thorpe Malsor.
