William Anstey (b 1787)

Father of Eleven

The entirety of the Stoke Gifford Anstey pedigree has now been mapped out and the lives of all of the early Stoke Gifford Ansteys, including William Anstey (b 1787), is known in great detail. They are all thoroughly documented in the book

ANSTEY: The Stoke Gifford Branch

This is the fourth book co-authored by Gary and Tom, the first edition of which was privately printed in September 2019. Further research for the second edition is currently under way, for eventual publication and sale on Amazon, subject to there being enough demand to cover the costs of publication (anybody interested in being contacted when this second edition is available for purchase, please contact us at research@theansteystory.com).

It is intended that much of the contents of this book will be uploaded to this Anstey project website over time for all to enjoy.
