The STANTONs came from Ripley in Surrey until 4x James (a bricklayer) apparently went to work on the
construction of the "Wey and Arun
Junction Canal" (a motorway construction project of its day). After
construction, James became the Lock Keeper and "Wharfinger"
at nearby Bramley lock (the first on the new canal). Here he raised his family, and first son James married
Esther BAVERSTOCK, who was the Lock Keeper’s daughter from Rowner
Lock, which was the last lock on the canal.
- Lock Keeper's Cottage c1868 - family home of the STANTONs since c1818.
It was probably built by 4x gt. grandfather James, who was a bricklayer
before joining the canal company.
The picture was taken looking across Bramley lock. The figure in the
top hat is (uncle) William STANTON, brother of 3x gt. grandfather James.
The woman in the picture may be Maria STANFORD his houskeeper.
