The coding system
The relationship of the author to Francis Stafford.
|Zachariah Stafford||g-g-g-g-g-g grandfather||384|
|Francis Stafford||g-g-g-g-g grandfather||192|
|Thomas Stafford||g-g-g-g grandfather||96|
|Wilson Stafford||g-g-g grandfather||48|
|Francis Stafford||great great grandfather||24|
|Thomas Stafford||great grandfather||12|
|John Alfred Stafford||grandfather||6|
For direct ancestors of myself, If the code for a person is N then their
father is 2xN and their mother 2xN +1.
My great grandfather is code 12, so his parents are 24 and 25.
All others are coded by their relationship as a descendant to one of the main line.
Wilson Stafford is 48. His children are therefore 48-A, 48-B etc.
His grandchildren will be 48-AA, 48-AB etc and 48-BA, 48-BB
There are certain inconsistencies to the way the coding has been applied, but some errors were just too much trouble to resolve.

The following pages contain the information I have been able to gather on the Staffords. There is always a small element of doubt in such information, where significant assumptions have been made I have attempted to hightlight them.
The information is arranged by generations but on the web pages, by using the hypertext links it is possible to follow a line through.
My particular interest is to my great grandfather, Thomas Stafford, who moved to Birmingham in the 1850s. However, for completeness I have included such information as I have of the Staffords remaining in the villages beyond then.
