1840 Tithe Survey

The 1840 Tithe survey has the surname only in the variants Stanway and Stonier. This suggests that bearers of other variants had either left Biddulph (at least some of the Stonehewers, for example, had moved to Uppington in Shropshire), or had adopted a standard variant. Support for this theory comes from the list of Biddulph men who served in the Great War of 1914 - 1918, on the wall of the parish church, which lists F. Stanway, H. Stanway, J. Stonier, and two W. Stonier, but no other variants.
