150 World War One Hero Biographies Uploaded

We have reached another major milestone in the Anstey Story Project – we have now completed 150 biographies of ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ heroes who fought in World War One, and uploaded them to the Roll of Honour. The gentlemen (and a few ladies) that we have currently documented connect to dozens of different ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ sub-branches across theContinue reading “150 World War One Hero Biographies Uploaded”

Frank Anstey Second Boer War Hero

We have uploaded to the pre-World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Frank Anstey of the Kennford Ansteys, who emigrated to South Africa post-1891, enrolled with the South African Army in 1901 and was posted to the 3rd Battalion ‘D’ Company, Railway Pioneer Regiment, fighting in the Second Boer War.

Philip Roger Anstey World War One Hero?

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Philip Roger Anstey of the Dyrham Anstees, who enrolled with the Royal Tank Corps in 1921. We are currently trying to establish if he had previous army postings during the war itself, with either the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars or any other unit. Anybody whoContinue reading “Philip Roger Anstey World War One Hero?”

Albert Anstee World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Albert Anstee of the Swanbourne Ansteys, who signed up for active service in Taunton as a Private in May 1917 and was posted to the 3rd Battalion Labour Corps and thence almost immediately to the 47th Training Reserve Battalion. Anybody who has information theyContinue reading “Albert Anstee World War One Hero”

Milborne Port Ansty Page Commenced

We have begun to map the pedigree of the Milborne Port Ansty sub-branch, which lies in Somerset but right on the border with Dorset. We are currently still researching the origin of this sub-branch, and precisely how it connects to the overall Anstey pedigree. We are actively on the lookout for anybody who is willing to addContinue reading “Milborne Port Ansty Page Commenced”

Reginald Frederick Anstey World War One Hero

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Reginald Frederick Anstey of the Dowland Ansteys, who was seriously wounded in battle (we are currently unable to ascertain which one) at some point in late 1918, fighting with the 15th Battalion of the Gloucester Regiment, dying from his injuries in December 1918 in hospital. AnybodyContinue reading “Reginald Frederick Anstey World War One Hero”

We have uploaded to the World War One Roll of Honour a biography of Bertie Stone Anstey of the Bradninch Ansteys, who served as a Private with the Mechanical Transport section of the Army Service Corps (Service Number: M2/167535). Unfortunately we have absolutely no details of his war story apart from the fact that for his services heContinue reading “Bertie Stone Anstey World War One Hero”

Wentworth, Ontario Anstey Page Commenced

We have begun to map the pedigree of the Wentworth County, Ontario Ansteys of Canada, which consists currently of a series of unconnected clues. Given that Hamilton in Wentworth County is a port, it is highly unlikely that any ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’s living there will form a single coherent sub-branch – it is moreContinue reading “Wentworth, Ontario Anstey Page Commenced”
