My Name is Bill Sadler residing in South Africa and am searching for Sadlers related to the following. Thomas (c late 1700's) known as "Thomas of Graffham", owner of what is now known as "Woodcote Farm" married Emma Davis? 1818 - children Henry, Mary, Emma. Rev.Henry (1824-1904) Priest of Gibralter 1853/4, Curate St.James 1855/62, Curate Norvah, Cornwall 1862/7. Married Elizabeth Mary Serres(1833-1920) in 1860. Children Thomas Sefton, Harry, Eva, Alice, Arthur, Charles, William. I have been fortunate to have been given info regarding Thomas Sefton's family in Canada but unfortunately no contacts in the UK. I do have more info on THomas and Rev.Henry

Bill's post is quite an old one and he may not still be following it. If you click on his name, you can send him a message through GR (as long as he still has the same email address).
