Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Stanley Families of America: As Descended From John, Timothy, and Thomas Stanley of Hartford, Ct, 1636
At the urgent request of members of the Stanley family in New Britain, Conn., I was persuaded to undertake the preparation of this volume. It is true that researches of the kind were not altogether uncongenial to my taste, and I had from time to time gathered a good many materials suitable to a place in such a work. But occupied as I was by an absorbing profession, which demanded all my resources of time and strength, I really was unable to give to this that patient, protracted, I may add, expensive course of investigation which the nature of the undertaking required. Those who have had experience in such labors will know full well what I mean; those who have not, will scarcely appreciate them, however fully described.
In now giving the results of my work to those interested in them, I have only to say that I have done the best I could. I have not attempted to make it as exhaustive as some similar volumes have been. My aim has not been to follow the ramifications of descent outside of the Stanley name. The Stanley daughters, who by marriage lost that name, became, by so doing, incorporated into other family lines, many of them of high position and repute, the exhibition of which would be extremely interesting, but the magnitude of the task involved in tracing them out for this purpose, would be greater than I could assume. Neither was it piawble to include, in connection with the various names, a large mass of biographical and historical matter which had been collected.
