My ggggrandfather was Thomas Staines (1795-1843). His son was John who was born in Ringstead, Norfolk about 1825 and died at Beechamwell in 1859.
My father was Alfred Staines, born 1905 Southwark, eldest child ofAlfred and Sarah (nee White). I know little of his brothers and sisters who were: Sidney, Louisa,'Nellie', Sarah, 'Hetty', 'Ted', 'George', Walter and John. The family lived in Southwark and Lambeth.
I would be pleased to hear any information concerning this family.
