In 1938 Stan married Melba Sherwin at Fitzhead.
They went to Suffolk to farm with Oliver Andrew and Mina. In Sussex they had their two children Nick and Cynthia.
They then returned to the West Country and farmed at Tatworth near Chard where Stan and Oliver farmed together as the ‘Andrew Bros’, but then Uncle Stan took over Denhill and it was from there that he, Auntie Melba, Nick and Cynthia set off for South Africa (by boat) in the middle of the severe Winter of 1947.
They lived in South Africa for the rest of their lives, returning for regular visits to see the family.
