FLEET family connections
Posted by: Mert Date: April 18, 2000 at 07:42:28

The name FLEET shows up on
our family tree quite a few
times as a given name. I
started to wonder if at some
point it was a surname.

I am stuck on tracing my
family back prior to 1850.

This is the line. The name
"Fleet" as a given name shows
up in John's descendants quite
a few times.

This is all I know, and it's
from John's side:

Brothers:

John Delancey Stanton, b1850
James Harvey Stanton, b???

Not sure where they were born.
John's info lists three different
states: Michigan, Illinois, Ohio
(taken from census, obit, death record)

I have no idea where or when James
died, so I have not yet been able
to find info on him.

Extensive research of the STANTON
families in the US/England have
not brought about a connection to
the two brothers above.

The following given names appear
often: Henry, Harvey, Fleet

IT is thought - but not known for
sure - that the mother of John and
James was a DELANCEY. Follow-up has
not shown this to be true as we
simply are at an impass.

So, we got to thinking - perhaps
FLEET was a surname at one time.

Any ideas?
