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.
