Stanhoe residents, emigrés and ancestors

One of the aims of stanhoe.org has always been to provide news of the village for people who used to live in Stanhoe or who have family connections with the village.

And although we don’t intend to become a full-blown genealogy resource, we are always happy to hear from anyone whose ancestors lived in Stanhoe, or who has simply moved away – just .

Use the menu on the left to find out more about some old Stanhoe families.

You can also use our local history links page for some basic information that may be useful when starting a family history search.

Churchyard survey

In 1980 local historian Gillian Beckett and her mother Alice Tuck carried out a thorough survey of the grave memorials and inscriptions in All Saints’ church and the surrounding churchyard.

They recorded a total of 84 memorials inside the church and 173 outside, plus notes on the war memorial, church history, former rectors, and the plants and wildlife to be found in the churchyard.

As is often the way with village documents, the survey disappeared from public view for several years. In March 2018 Stanhoe Archive was pleased to unearth a copy, which you can view here (PDF, 9 MB).

All Saints’ churchyard: the traditional resting place of Stanhoe villagers past and present 

The PDF is searchable, though the quality of the typescript means the transcription is poor in many places. The document itself is readable enough, however, and should be a useful resource for any family researchers who may have ancestors buried here.

Gillian and her mother point out how even in 1980 the churchyard had changed considerably in recent years, and those changes have continued. Anyone looking for graves today should be prepared for thick undergrowth and recent damage from fallen trees.
