James Anstee (NP 10)

See ‘Anstey: A Complete History From the Norman Invasion to World War One‘ for much more on the Newport Pagnell Anstees. In addition to biographies of various Anstey individuals who make up this sub-branch, the book contains a plethora of Anstey research and statistics, including an analysis of how the Newport Pagnell Anstees fit into the pedigree descendent from Hubert de Anesti, the 12th century originator of the ‘Anstey’ surname.

NP 10. James Anstee: He was born in 1845 in Wolverton to father Joseph Anstee (NP 7). He first married Mary Gibbard (b 1844) in Radclive on 6 August 1871 – he was already living in Crewe at the time of their marriage. There were no children of this marriage and she died in Nantwich in 1877, so he was a widower living with his mother Mary (NP 7) at 73, Thomas Street, Monks Coppenhall, Nantwich in the 1881 Census. He then married Sarah Latham (b 1843 Wynbury) in 1882 in Nantwich and they were living at 38, Manchester Street, Monks Coppenhall, Nantwich in both 1888 and in the 1901 Census where he was a general labourer. By the 1911 Census he was a labourer on the railways living with his wife at 51 Thomas Street Crewe – they had no children. They was still at 51 Thomas Street in 1918, Sarah died in 1920 in Nantwich and he died in 1924 in Nantwich, by now living at 49 Thomas Street.
