Lancashire

One of the most important counties in England for Stanley research is Cheshire. Here the Stanleys were significant historical figures, held land and were respected across the country.

The offline database does not specifically focus on these Stanley lines, but there are a lot of web sites out there that document more.

I list just some of them here.
