I have all the information on this gentleman (ecept death date) and the jigsaw of the info seems to fit but I cannot prove he is actually THE John Sadler I need

He joined the Life Guards in 1815
He married twice in London in St Geaorges Hanover Square 2cnd wife Sarah Strickland in 1822 fits in with birth of their daughter Sarah in c 1823..(no birth details seem available but it might have been Windsor Castle as he was on duty there) Retired in 1841 and went to live in Ripon Sarah married in Ripon
Anyone any more information please

Not sure what you're looking for.............apart from his death, which will be on freebmd

You haven't given any indication of when he was last known to be alive............or his birth year

You say he was your G G Grandfather......then seem to suggest you aren't sure if he actually was.............

Is Sarah your PROVEN direct line?

If not...................how did you work back to this family?

Where was Sarah in 1841?

Dea

Dea Report 30 Jan 2013 11:20

There appear to be 2 John Sadlers who are Chelsea Pensioners, both discharged around the same time, both from Yorkshire.

One in the 2nd Regiment of Life Guards who was born in Sheffield c 1795 and worked as a Smith.

The other in the 1st Regiment of Life Guards who was born in Boltby, Thirsk, Yorkshire c 1798 and worked as a Labourer. - He gave his date of birth as 7th August.

Their records are on FMP and neither give any clue as to a wife or any children.

Carol sent me a copy of the marriage cert for Sarah Sadler and John Tuet Simpson:

dated 12th June, 1848 at Ripon Cathedral.
John aged 24, batchelor, stone mason. father same name - a farmer
Sarah aged 22, spinster, father John Sadler, - a farmer. (suggests birth date c 1826 ???)

Witnesses Wm (or W M )? Theakston and Harriet Nelson Jones.

addresses just say 'Ripon'

Carol - How have you connected John Sadler (Farmer) to the one who was in the Life Guards please?

Carole Report 30 Jan 2013 22:39

I connected it like this

Sarah born c 1823 m John Simpsonbc 1824 In Ripon in 1848

Croft Parish gave me details of John Simpson which match other people who have contacted me over the years.

I found John Sadler in some war records on Ancestry & the he reappeared in Ripon, as a pensioner, in 1841 census
At the time Sarah was in service in London but she actually married in Ripon Cathedral.....John SIMPSON was a master stone mason and he could well have been working on Ripon Cathedral & met Sarah whilst she was visiting her parents
They firstly lived in Yarm then sarah moved up to county Durham & I have all the census records which, of course, include my G grandmama Grtrude Wilson nee Simpson,johnSimpson died about 1845 from that lung disease.I have death cert proving Sarah could not write

The bit on the marriage cert was a grand guess I think.....but Mr Simpson Senior is a different matter all together

Hope this helps

Carol,

You say above:

"JohnSimpson died about 1845 from that lung disease.I have death cert proving Sarah could not write"

Either you have mixed up the date, or the person??

Could you tell me what you meant to put please?

Elizabeth Simpson married Timothy Wilson in 1832. I wonder if she was a widow and the mum of John Simpson.

Hi Everybody
Just got back from my shift as a stately home room guide...to find load of stuff
Sarah married John Simpson from Croft on Tees
His mother was Elizabeth Simpson....oh the marriage certificate he gives name of John T Simpson as his father...very odd... as vicar at Croft says he is illegitimate son of Elizabeth
John & Sarah live in yarm with 2 sons in 1851 census
1861 has her in County Durham
If this is the census she is with Timothy wilson & family
Elizabeth Simpson has married Tmothy Wilson in 1831
so sarah Simpson is her d in Law and the lids are Elizabeths granchildren
One census has John & Sarah actually together
Then she is widowed and she is with her own family until 1891 when she listed as a servant...
I cannot see when she died as their are a number of sarah Simpsons
Does this help
