I am fairly certain that we have no 19th century connection as I have a fairly complete tree of my Saunders from Richard Wells Saunders who was born in Tetsworth in 1789 and moved to Thame by the time of his marriage to Mary Woolhouse in 1816.  I can go back in Tetsworth for a few generations.  The Woolhouse name is used as a second Christian name for many generations.


I would suggest you approach the Berkshire and Oxfordshire Family History Societies.  The former has a search room which is next door to the Berkshire Record Office where they have a number of family histories available.

My own Saunders family comes from the Thame area and they are a little distant from Uffington

It only seems to produce the shield.  How did you all get the complete coat of arms?

Oxfordshire / Re: saunders family brill/ipstone

You don't give any dates and so it is difficult to be specific.  Our Saunders ancestors came from Tetsworth in the 18th century but by the early 19th century were living in Thame in Oxfordshire.  In the middle of the 19th a branch of the family were living in Brill and some of the children from other branches were also born there. Can you post details of your earliest Saunders ancestor.

Heraldry Crests and Coats of Arms / Re: Clan Donald Crest?

Your picture appears to show the shield and motto.  We need a better picture of the crest if you want it identified.  It is not clear from your photograph that there is a crest on top of the shield.

Or am I confused and you actually want the shield identified.

The Common Room / Re: Genealogical relationships

To work this out follow the following method.

Find the common ancestor for the two people.  In the relationship for each person count the number of "g"s.   Thus for example a great great grandfather counts as three.   The smaller number determines the number of the cousin.   First, second etc.  The difference between the two counts gives the number of times removed.


Family History Beginners Board / Re: Reading Berkshire

You would stand a better chance of a response if you had titled this thread "Warrilow Reading etc." and had posted it on the Berkshire Look Up board.  It is important to include the main subject of your search in your title.

Lancashire / Re: Why would a family move so much?

One branch of my family owned and lived in a cottage in Nuneaton.  Confusingly the address of the cottage changed with every census in the 19th century.  Twice the street name changed and on the other occasions the actual house number.  I was not confusing the census entry with the house number as where there was a house number there was also a census entry number.  It took a lot of detective work to prove it was the same cottage but fortunately there was public house a few doors away. 

The Lighter Side / Re: getting back my documents

I would suggest that you try the opposite approach.  Simply ask the museum for the return of the loaned documents.  If there were any conditions on the loan, you can be sure that they will come up with them and you can start any negotiations from there.
