Notes: After 40 years of research, I am pursuing a new lead on the 17th C. English origin of Mathew Stanley/Standley (1628?-1686). The first actual baptismal record for a Matthew Stanley, I’ve seen, with a birth date 02/11/1628, was in Thame, Oxfordshire. Thame is but a few miles (13) from the birthplace/homeplace of Mathew’s American patron and neighbor, Zaccheus Gould, in Great Missenden, in the Aylesbury vale of Buckinghamshire, bordering Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire. The Putnams of Topsfield are also from this part of Buckinghamshire, and related to the Goulds, as are the Weedens, the Griggs, the Farringtons, Coopers, Tituses, and others, who also came to America in the same decade as the Goulds. I now have the image of the Thame baptismal record of Matthew Stanley, son of Ham(or Hamme) Stanley and Elizabeth Hawkins, born? and married in the adjacent community of Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire, in 1624. We have also found a baptismal record for Elizabeth Stanley/Standley, b. 1630, to Ham and Elisabeth Stanley, and another son, Wm./William, father Ham, in 1642, in Thame. There is a death record for Ham “Hamme” Stanley,in 1667, in Thame.
