STANDBANK OF ABERFORD
The only entry for the name Standbank, Stanbank, or variants in the Aberford parish registers before the marriage of William and Mary (Sampson) Standbank in 1724 is for the marriage of "John Stonbanke" and "Ellinora Clugh" on 28 March 1698. There is no other trace of this couple in the Aberford parish registers. However, at Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire, a William, son of John Stanbank, was baptised on 14 January 1698/99, followed by other children of a John Stanbank in 1700, 1703 and 1712 (other siblings may have been baptised between 1703 and 1712, but parentage is not always given in the baptism entries during that period). No earlier siblings are recorded, nor is there any record of John's marriage in the Edwinstowe parish registers. It therefore seems likely that John was the man who married Eleanor Clough at Aberford in 1698. There was also a burial of an "Eling" Stanbank at Edwinstowe on 20 Oct 1721, which could be Eleanor (Clough) Standbank.
