"The Notices of the Stables Family"

These were collected from a vast variety of sources, over a long period of time, by William Stables, of Kirkby Overblow, Yorkshire. The original manuscript is believed to have been written between 1830 and 1856.

In 1931, the information was copied from the original manuscript by Thomas Branch Dunn of Halifax, Virginia, USA. The original manuscript having been sent to him by Mrs. A. A. Drover of Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, the daughter of Jonathon Dunn and his wife, Charlott Stables, daughter of the author of The Notices of the Stables Family.

The transcript presented on this web-site was taken from a copy of The Notices of the Stables Family, together copies of some other related manuscripts referred to within it, that were generously provided for publication by William L. Stables Jnr of Harrisonburg, USA. These papers were delivered to him by his uncle Alfred Gray Stables in April 2004.
