Researching the families of my forebears, Anne Bedford from East Retford,
Richard Staniland from East Markham (married Ann Elliott 1769 Drayton East)
, Ann Justice (married Richard Staniland jnr in East Markham 1786), Richard
Staniland (married Sussanah Ball 1836 in Derbyshire) and Eliza Harriett Down
who married the other Richard Staniland (they really like the name Richard
Staniland in my family!!) in 1873 in Shardlow Derbyshire. Also interested in
James Clarke from Hyson Green c1850-1904.
My biggest brickwall is the Bedford family from East Retford. Anne married
John Mackintire in 1808 in East Retford, but that is as far as I can get
with that surname. Would appreciate any feedback on Anne and her family.

I'd probably split posts like this into two threads, one for STANILAND
and one for BEDFORD. You also need to put surnames, dates and locations in
the subject line. Sometimes that's all people read.
I have a number of Staniland lines in my tree, but can't identify any
that you mention. But it is a huge family. I'm sure you will find plenty of
posts in the Nottingham List Archives. Go to Rootsweb, click on Mailing
Lists, insert Nottinghamshire and hit enter. Then simply click the search
archives tag and search for Staniland. You should also search the Staniland
While at Rootsweb, you should also look for submitted Family Trees. I'm
sure there are plenty for Staniland. And remember to look for Bedford
I'm not sure if you have proven a continuous link with all your
Richards. There's a 50 yr gap between 1786 in East Markham and 1836 in
Derby. I'd try and fill in other family members as well. Sometimes we need
to look sideways.
Get as much information as you can on later generations from 1841-1911
census records. If you have an Ancestry subscription, have a look for
submitted trees there and contact other researchers.
Meantime, I'll see if I can find some links. But any research should be
done by you. And there will be lots to do for this family.
