I placed this on clarinet board, did not see the flute one at the time.

I would like either referral to an expert or an expert's opinion on a baroque flute that was passed down through my family.

It is "Stanesby Junior". YES, it is real baroque flute, not a reproduction or copy. I know this because it passed, over time, through the family. With a bit more effort I could probably track down its progress prior to it being passed on to me. That side of the family came to this continent in colonel times from England. (I am DAR eligible).
It is in good condition as it was not played and was treated and stored as an antique heirloom.

I have so far learned this was English maker.

I had some minor restoration done so it is playable. The wood is intact with no significant cracks.

I can discuss in more detail with a knowledgeable individual off the forum.
I would really appreciate if someone could tell me more about it.
