Hi Stephen,
Thank you for your message regarding Ann Banfield, Stoke Damerel.
I was not the Roger Banfield that posted a message on the Weeks forum but there is another Roger Banfield who has been posting messages so perhaps it was him that had posted it.
With regards to Ann Banfield, the one I'm interested in was born 1818 (parents Francis Banfield b. 1771 (Scilly) and Jane Dangher - no more details) Francis and Jane had a son Thomas b. 24.3.1806, a daughter Ann b. 1808 and another daughter Ursula b. 12.5.1808 All were born at Stoke Damerel.
My interest is wether Thomas married ? Ann never did and can be found on the 1881 census living with her brother in law and sister Ursula (Ursula married a Nicholas Gedye.
I have another small tree but have not been able to find out much more about them yet. John Banfield b. 1806 (Devonport) married an Ann b. 1801 (Devonport) The details I have show that they had a daughter ELIZA b. 1839, a daughter Elizabeth b. 1842 and a brother James b. 1850. All were born in Devonport. The ref. number I have for this information is 1882/24/43/0221031.
If you could shed any more light on Banfields at Stoke Damerel I would be pleased.
My link with the Stoke Damerel area is through Francis Banfield b.1771 who came from Scilly.
