Samuel Stanfield (Squire) born Aug 1679, Audenshaw, Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire. Christened 28 Aug 1679, Old Chapel Presbyterian, Dukinfield, CHS. Mother Sarah Jeston, father Samuel Stanfield Sr. I recently found this & other references on the Web but have not yet checked original sources.

I purchased a small book this year at the Quaker Family History Library in Dublin, Ireland entitled "History of the Religious Society of Friends in Lurgan," by Arthur G. Chapman. On page 41:

"At a meeting in Lurgan in 1709 the following minute was made: 'John Marshall, son of William Marshall, deceased, being of the age of 15 years, the 25th of last first month, being willing by the consent of this meeting and his relation, Samuel Stanfield, to go apprentice to John Robson to learn the art or trade of a weaver and John Robson being willing to take him, they have agreed that the said John Marshall shall serve the said John Robson six years from the first of fourth month last. John Robson to furnish (him) with sufficient meat, drink, washing and lodging befitting such an apprentice during all the said term and also to pay him the said John Marshall the sum of 16 shillings yearly for 4 years of said 6 years and the last two years the sum of twenty shillings each year in order that he may be furnished with clothes and said John Robson and Samuel Stanfield are desired to get indentures and conditions perfected against next meeting.'"

Samuel Standfield

Samuel Standfield, a Quaker born about 1690, was a possible son of John Stansfield, born about 1665, of Shore, West Yorkshire. Samuel was in Ireland by 1711, where he married Jane Andrew near Lurgan, County Armagh, at the southern end of Lake Neagh near Belfast. Jane was probably a daughter of William Andrew Sr. of Lurgan. Samuel, Jane, and the Andrew family were members of the Lurgan Friends Monthly Meeting. In 1729, Samuel and Jane obtained a certificate of removal from Lurgan meeting and emigrated to Pennsylvania early the next year. 18 They may have been accompanied by Jane’s brother, William Jr.

The Standfields of Ireland were all of English extraction. During the latter half of the seventeenth century, large numbers of Scotch and English settlers were sent to Ireland to establish an English presence. These settlers largely displaced the sparse population in northern Ireland. Ancestors of English settlers in northern Ireland include the planters and also those who came seeking relief from religious persecution. The Quaker Standfields of East Yorkshire20 are known to have suffered arrests and seizures of property,21 which probably led to Samuel’s decision to go to Ireland. Like many other Quakers, he may have found that life for members of their Society could be equally hazardous in Ireland, prompting a move to William Penn’s colony in America where their sect was favoured. Since no Irish record of Samuel has been found other than the marriage and removal to Pennsylvania, it seems probable that the family was not in Ireland very long.

There were two Standfield families in colonial Pennsylvania. The Francis Standfield family were also Quakers, who came to Pennsylvania in 1683 from Cheshire in England.22 Apparently the two families became associated in Pennsylvania only when a great-grandson of Francis Standfield, James Fisher, married Samuel Standfield’s daughter Alice in 1736 at Kennett, Chester County, Pennsylvania. There is some evidence that Francis Standfield came from Yorkshire prior to residing in Cheshire. 21 Francis was probably the son of James Stansfield of Brighouse. Samuel Standfield of Pennsylvania was probably also descended from James of Brighouse. It is unlikely that the the two Standfield families of Pennsylvania were aware of any common ancestry.

Upon arrival in Pennsylvania, Samuel and Jane Standfield settled first in East Nottingham, Chester County. Nottingham had been surveyed and settled on the Baltimore Pike as a planned strategy to gain advantage in the border dispute between William Penn and Lord Baltimore. East Nottingham Meeting was established as early as 1700 by Quakers from the Marcus Hook area of Chester Co., Province of Pennsylvania, on a land grant from William Penn called the Nottingham Lots. The land grant stipulated that a small parcel of land be set aside, about 40 acres, for a meetinghouse and graveyard. This was done and a log meetinghouse was built.1 The location was rather remote for its time, being about 50 miles southwest of Philadelphia, almost to Octoraro Creek at the western boundary of Chester County. The final border settlement put the Pennsylvania-Delaware boundary through the township, leaving the East Nottingham meeting house on the Maryland side. The remoteness, and risk of trouble with native Indians, may have led some of the Nottingham settlers to relocate closer to Philadelphia. Even though William Penn’s benevolent and fair dealings with the native peoples had been very successful in preserving good relations with the Quaker settlers, tensions and hostilities were growing among the general population. The Quakers themselves were sometimes resented for not assisting in subduing the Indians. For whatever reason, Samuel and Jane decided to leave East Nottingham about a year after their arrival. They moved closer in on the Pike, to Kennett, about 30 miles from Philadelphia, in the spring of 1731. The following entry concerning their “certificate of removal” from Nottingham has been preserved. 11

At Our Meeting of E. Nottingham held the 20th of ye 1st Mo 1730/31.
Samll Stanfield hath requested of this meeting a certificate on behalf of himself & his wife to ye mo’ly meeting of Kennett. Arthur Barret & John Churchman are therefore appointed to make Enquiry in to his conversation & Prepare a Certificate accordingly & bring to ye next Mo’ly meeting.
At our mtg of E. Nottingham held ye 17th of ye 2nd mo 1731.
The Friends appointed to make Enquirey into ye Conversation & Circumstances of Samll Stanfield have given this meeting an acct yt they find nothing to obstruct him of having a Certificate & have Brought one wch was read, approved & signed at our mtg of E. Nottingham.

Samuel and Jane Standfield had six children, Alice, John, Jane, William, Samuel and Mary. 2,10,23 It is not known with certainty where the first three children were born. The Pennsylvania records imply that the “three younger children” were the only ones born at Kennett. The three oldest children (Alice, John, and Jane) were probably born in the north of Ireland before the immigration.

The only known studies of descendants of Samuel and Jane Standfield are those of Alice Standfield Fisher and James Fisher. 23,24 That line has been traced to hundreds of descendants in Ohio, Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas and elsewhere. An interesting possibility is that Cephas Fisher Sr., a grandson of James Fisher and Alice Standfield, may have marrried his Standfield (third) cousin.27 In 1803, he married Rachel Standfield, daughter of Thomas Standfield and Hannah Vernon, in Greene County, Tennessee. Thomas Standfield is likely a descendant of John, the son of Samuel who went to Orange County, N. Carolina, although this has yet to be studied. 16,17 The descendants of the other Standfield family of colonial Pennsylvania, that of Francis Standfield, all derive from daughters of Francis. James Standfield, only son of Francis, died in 1699 with no male heir surviving childhood. 22

Samuel Standfield and wife Jane probably lived out their lives at Kennett. They were both at the marriage of daughter Alice to James Fisher on Valentine’s Day in 1736. 6 The birth of their youngest child Mary was recorded in 1738.15 Jane was at the wedding of son John at Kennett in 1742, 6 but Samuel (Sr.) had apparently died by that time. No later records have been discovered for Samuel and Jane.

Jane Andrew was probably the daughter of William Andrew Sr. of Lurgan, County Armagh, Ireland. William Andrew Jr., of Lurgan, may have emigrated with Samuel and Jane. When John, son of Samuel and Jane, married Hannah Dixon at Kennett in 1742, William Andrews was one of the family in attendance. 6 William Andrew Jr. had married Miriam Bullock of Lurgan meeting at Lurgan, County Armagh in 1717. George, son of William and Miriam, was born 1719 at Lurgan.4 In New Jersey, possible relatives are Samuel and Peter Andrews of Burlington monthly meeting. 5

The Yorkshire Standfields20,21,26

Samuel Standfield was a Quaker settler who came to Pennsylvania from Lurgan, near Belfast, Ireland, in 1729. He married Jane Andrew in 1711 at Lurgan. Samuel probably came from the Standfield (Stansfield, Stanfeld) family who had been in west Yorkshire many generations, with a family seat at Stansfield, in Halifax Parish. Samuel was a probable son of John Stansfield of Halifax, a descendant of James Stansfield of Brighouse. Francis Standfield, another early Quaker settler in colonial Pennsylvania, who emigrated from Cheshire, was probably also descended from James Stansfield of Brighouse. If this identification is correct, the two Standfield familes of colonial Pennsylvania were related.

The Standfields were in Yorkshire at least as early as 1539, when Margareta Stansfeld married Antonius Smyth at Halifax. One branch, the Thomas Stanfield family, lived in east Yorkshire, around Burstwicke and Patrington. However, most of the family records can be found in the Parish of Halifax, in west Yorkshire. James Stansfield of Manckinholes Monthly Meeting, son of James of Brighouse Monthly Meeting, had at least six children, Martha, Abraham, Susannah, Joshua, and twins Johnas & Johnathan. The first six were born between 1667 and 1683. Another probable daughter, Mary, “daughter of James of Parish Hepton-Stall, Co. York,” married John Barker in 1690. Abraham and Lidia Stansfield died in 1669, prisoners at York Castle and were buried at Mankenholes. Deborah Stansfield, “daughter of George,” died in 1669.

John Stansfield, who died at Shore in 1685, had at least two daughters, Lidia and Susan who died young in 1670 and 1673 respectively, and at least one son John II. John II was probably the father of Samuel Standfield, who moved to the north of Ireland before 1711 and emigrated to Pennsylvania about 1729. John III, son of John II and Mary, was born in 1702. “Mary Stanfield of Blythe” died in 1708. In 1671, Charles Stanfield was arrested with a group of Quakers who had four pounds eight shillings taken in tithes. Charles Stansfield died at Shore in 1685. In 1678, John and James Stansfield were arrested and had titheables taken worth four pounds sixpence, including corn, hay, and each a piece of Kersey (woolen cloth). In 1683, one of the John Stanfields was arrested at “Stanfield cum Langfield,” and had “four Kine, two Heifers and an Horse, worth 24 pounds” taken in tithes.

In 1670, Francis Standfield was arrested at a meeting at Cartop (Probably Carthorpe, in Yorkshire) and had nine pounds taken in tithes. Francis, probably the son of James of Brighouse, emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1683. In 1681, a Johnathan Stanfield was present at a wedding at [?Malersey?].

Thomas Stanfield was imprisoned five weeks in 1652? for “exhorting the People assembled at Patterington” and refusing to pay sixpence for tithes. He was “carried to jail” and had goods taken worth six pounds eightpence. Thomas had at least four children, Sabrina, Salamona, Zachariah, and Elisha, all born between 1660 and 1667. Thomas died at Burstwicke in 1670.


Many descendants of Samuel Standfield and Jane Andrew have been documented in previous studies.24 The studies are all found in the catalog index for the Family History Library of the Church of Christ Latter Day Saints (Mormons) at Salt Lake City, Utah. Also, this author is preparing a new Fisher family history which will document many more descendants. The Fisher history will be placed in the Mormon library and also in the Clayton Genealogical Library in Houston, Texas. The first version is expected to be available in 1996.

Probable ancestry of Francis Standfield, and known descendancy to this author, is as follows.

[James Stansfield Sr.] b. [1595], West Yorkshire [Halifax Parish]

[James Stansfield Jr.] b. [1620] West Yorkshire [Halifax Parish]
