Saunders family

Posted by Jo Rolph on April 4, 2017 at 16:00 17 Comments


Can anyone help me please? I'm researching the Saunders family from Stradbroke as part of my family tree and am having some difficulties. I have a Margaret Saunders born in 1841. Sometimes, she's referred to as Margaretta or Margarette. She married Abraham Ward. From the marriage certificate, her father's name was Samuel Saunders but the problem is this: the 1841 census shows her at 2 months old, living with her unmarried mother Marianne Saunders. It seems, that as Marianne has Saunders as a maiden name, that Samuel may have been a relative! What's also very strange, is that the GRO have been unable to provide a birth certificate for Margaret and she isn't listed on Free BMD either! By the 1851 census, there are 2 more children, Emma and John Saunders, but still no male Head of Household. 

It seems that Marianne's mother may have been a Phillis Saunders born in 1795 and daughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth Saunders. 

Is anyone able to help me…

"If the Parish Council is serious about wanting a closer working relationship in the future, we hope to receive a more positive response this time. In the meantime, we will withhold payment of the latest rent demand"

The disagreement is well documented on this site and people hoped that calmer heads had prevailed.

The letter also reveals that the Trust appear to want to borrow money using the lease on the surgery as security although quite…
