Death*31 AUG 1920 Henry Stacey died on 31 AUG 1920 at Uraidla, Adelaide, SA, AustraliaG, aged 81.6 
ResearchNote* Research Note: Henry Stacey is said to have come from Richmond, Surrey and the numerous trees on Ancestry gives baptism details etc. Ross Stacey give his parents as William Stacey, 1784-1867 & Ann Tracy, 1799-1840, & wife Annie Shuard.
Kathryn Blazewiicz gies his parents as William Edward Stacey, 1811-1867 & Anne Court, 1804-1863, & wife as Anne Schueard. The other trees I have seen on Ancestry offer no other information and most seem to have copied one another.

However there are two issues, one is there are a number of Henrys born in SE England about that time and with fathers of William. It is not clear why this Henry was chosen unless there is more information not recorded on the trees. The other is that I have not seen a passenger list for him to show when he came to Australia. Other trees seem to have no more information.7,8 
Note* He has descendants with matches to MG & NGJ on both Ancestry and MyHeritage. The MyHeritage ones to MGJ have higher cM counts. Triangulation shows that the matches are on chromosome 11.9
