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.
