This is the family of my grandmother's grandmother Sarah Stenning (or Steyning). The family lived in Wisborough Green in the late 18th and most of the 19th century. Apparently the Stennings had a reputation for poaching and the like but I have yet to find out more about this and the antecedents of John Stenning.
