It is thought that Pitt-Rivers first became acquainted with the Stanley family in when he started to court Alice, though it is possible that the Lane Fox and Stanley families were acquainted before this date and most people of their class, at that time, at least knew of each other.

The Stanleys were described by another relative, Bertrand Russell, as:. All his biographers make the point that it was not only the Stanley family members who were intellectually stimulating, but also their circle of friends and acquaintances which included many of the leading thinkers of the day. Owen Stanley was therefore a cousin of Alice's father, and a second cousin to Alice. This information was taken mostly from his Australian Dictionary of Biography entry see link below which states, 'Stanley's achievements were principally scientific.
