STRADBROKE W.I. JULY AND AUGUST REPORTS

Actually it was a straightforward evening of business followed by an interesting talk from a lady called Denise Billinghurst who told us of her time in Africa where she frequently travelled . The main purpose of her visits was to assist at a lion orphanage where rescued lion cubs were raised and…Continue

I recently posted about my family research into my Saunders line and the problems I was having. I was looking for Samuel Saunders born in Stradbroke in about 1820. Well, I may have found him! Jonathan Saunders married Mary Ann Annis (sometimes spelt Anness) on 13/10/1812 at Stradbroke , possibly in the Baptist Chapel. They had a son called Samuel who was born on 14/09/1820. This would fit nicely with his daughter Margaretta being born in 1841. So, I think that in the absence of any other…Continue

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…Continue

All business and notices were dealt with and the birthday buttonholes distributed .The hostesses Jennifer and…Continue
