I started looking at Standens
because I was asked about a Calvert/Standen marriage. From
there it just took off. The family complicate matters
because of different spellings of the name. Although I
didn't think there was any family connection I discovered a link to the
Easthams which when I explored it further took me to two sisters who
lived next door to my family in the 1940s, 50's and till they died in
the 1960s. These two maiden sisters were honorary "aunts"
while my sister and I were growing up so I found it
fascinating to discover their family background.
