Finding your way around.

Using the search facility is the easiest way to find the content or person you need. Use the search box above.

Every family-member has their own page which includes links to other family-members directly related to them and to places and events that have featured in their lives. Most of the facts are supported by reference notes.

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 (610 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.

Privacy Issues

The pages of family-members who are still alive are not visible to site visitors that are not logged in. Only authenticated users who are logged in can see these pages. Please read our Privacy policy page.
