Hi Ian we must be related aswell then??I cant place you at the moment??please enlighten me? .

Cathay,

I started this thread several years ago, and we have corresponded on and off over that time.  As mentioned, I'm Phoebe Sanders' grandson.  The kick starter I had to researching my family tree was when I was on holiday in Devon, and my Dad said to go to Stibb Cross and see what it looks like now.  Driving up some narrow road, I followed a truck, and on the back of that was P.M. Sanders!  Given the name and given the location, it seemed as if there could have been a family connection.  Following that name up with the hauliers register gave me name Paul Moses Sanders.  Now that's not a common name! 

Regards

Ian

henry son of harriet and henry married betsy penfold her mother was a orchard I don't yet know her father or mothers maiden name as I haven't really done much on this part of the tree but I will over the week end.
henry their son was born 1915 and he and betsy had moses in 1938 and he married Eileen birch born 1939.they had 3 children still living so cant mention them but moses died very young in 1977 of a heart attack.i think henry born 1915 was one of a twin but I will need to check that,
harriet was born 1883 and died 1954 her husband henry was born 1883
Harriets perants were in deed Alfred sanders and Louisa small.
I haven't done much on this tree but will be doing it over the week end and hope to get back to you by Monday next week.henry born 1883 is a bit difficult cause there were so many henry sanders born 1883 in that area but I will narrow it down quite quickly so don't worry.its just I hadn't worked on eileens line at all.

Hello everyone, just introducing myself as a fellow descendant of the Sanders/Saunders line.

Michael Dean Sanders (1800-1892) and Elizabeth Draper were my 5x great grandparents.
Michael Saunders (b.1820) and Delilah Lee (4x great grands).
Walter Saunders (1850-1920) and Sarah Lavinia Burton (3x great grands). Walter and his family settled in Hersham, Surrey, with 10 children, one of whom (Noah Alfred Saunders, b.1888) was killed in France in 1918.

I have quite a bit of information on this line, and if I can help anyone out, I'd be happy to do so. I am on Ancestry if you'd like to see more detail. I get a bit tangled up in the families they married into, but I know there are Orchard, Lee, and Stanley in abundance! If anyone has any photos of the Sanders/Saunders line, I'd love to see them. :) In the meantime, happy researching!

All the best,
Antonia
