John James Stanaway
Born:- 16 July 1813 - Camberwell
The parish records transcribed by the Cornish Family History Society show John Stanaway, son of James Stanaway and Eleanor baptised
in the Cornish village of Probus on 12 July 1814.
The birth in Camberwell is taken from the Stanaway family records supported by a hand written note which bears no official markings and contains further birth information extending through to
the 1870s. It does not appear to be a contemporaneous document.
