Stansbury is the the hometown of Angela Ledore, Alphonse Dalston, Henry Ledore and Randall Ascot. Hershel Layton, as seen later on in the game, moves here as a teenager from London with his parents Roland and Lucille.
Randall found a treasure that was discovered by another explorer call the Mask Of Chaos, later showing this to Angela Ledore and Hershel Layton along with a diagram on his wall with directions to the Wall of Norwell. The Wall Of Norwell acts as a map which leads to the Akbadain Ruins.
Hershel and Randall decided to go to the Akbadain Ruins to locate the lost treasure. Greeting them were mummies in which they defeated. After approaching the final room, Hershel accidentally sets off a trap, which causes the ruins to crumble and collapse below them, making a large hole in the floor. Randall nearly fell down the hole, but Hershel grabbed his hand and attempted to pull him up. However, Randall wanted to keep hold of the mask and fell.
Hershel returned to Stansbury, telling everyone what had happened. This prompted Henry to hire search parties to look for Randall after finding the treasure in the Akbadain Ruins. With his newfound wealth, he began to develop Monte d'Or and took Angela and Mrs. Ascot with him, so that they would be closer to the ruins.
