Who is listed here?
I have tried to include all family-members that are descendants of William Sandes and his wife Elizabeth Fernley who went to Ireland at about 1650 (about 580 people). Although much information is available about the ancestors of William Sandes going back to the 13th century around Carlisle, Cumbria, these people are not listed, yet. In addition only family members that were born with the name Sandes and their wives or husbands are listed, otherwise the numbers of family-members would become huge and unmanageable.
Please contact me - I would be delighted to hear from you . . .
- If you are a member of the family (i.e. born with the name Sandes or married to someone born with the name Sandes) and cannot find your name here.
- If you can add some information about a Sandes family-member that may or may not be listed here.
- If you have spotted any error on this website.
