There is some difficulty establishing the siblings of John Stanier. There were two Stanier families at the time headed by a William and Ann: William married Ann Whitehouse 11 November 1792 at Birmingham St Philips, and William married Ann Wane 22 August 1808 at Edgbaston. The above lists all offspring as children of William and Ann née Wain, as they form a coherent series of siblings. However, other reseachers have Ann and the earlier William as children of William/Ann née Whitehouse, a suggestion which leaves a suspiciously long gap between marriage and first child.
