Sadler Tribe

Considerable effort has to date traced my branch of the SADLER tribe back to the uper Stour area.

At present we are stuck with no ancestry for a John Sadler, born ca 1690-1710, who married in Belchamp St Paul a Sarah Marshall 20.10.1731, and later an Elizabeth Osborne 25.12.1738, both times in B St P.

From the second marriage he had 4 children, all born Belchamp St Paul:

Anne 1744 married a James Wells, from whom I have a couple of generations of descendants

Richard 1746 married Mary Parsons 20.10.1766 in Pentlow - this is my line and goes on until the present day through Cavendish and Newmarket

William 1748 married Sarah Goodchild 11.12.1769 in Cavrendish, later a Mary unknown about 1780, again in Cavendish - 5 children

James 1750 married Hannah Harrington 9.8.1770 in Cavendish; four children born in Pentlow.

If anybody has info on a John Sadler born in the area about 1690-1710, I'd be glad to have it. I know there were several Sadler pairs in both Clare and Stoke-by-Clare from 1650 on, but none so far has a John; Stoke -by-Clare records are missing for a period of 10 years just when I need them!

Equally, if i can help anyone working on the name Wells, or who has an odd Sadler in their tree, I would be very happy to do so.

Glemsford, Borley and Foxearth also show up in the tree later on.

Richard Sadler and Mary Parsons are also my line!! I am Richard's 6x great grandson through his son William and daughter-in-law Susan Butcher.

I have some news on John,. His father was a William and his mother was an Ann Wellman. I can also provide you with details of his grandparents and I believe I have traced his wife, Elizabeth Osborn to Salem, Massachusetts.

Her parents were Derbys and Osborns and her maternal grandparents were Derbys and Hasketts.

All 3 families appear to have been quite prominent families in Salem, to the point where the Derby family have roads named after them in the town!!

I have more information, so please get in touch at

All the best,

Russell Price
