  • Notes 
    • On the IGI (online) - Sarah Ann MAJOR, christened 6/6/1851, Folkestone daughter of Henry Spearpoint MAJOR and Ann.

      The 1851 UK Census reports as follows: 177 South Street, Folkestone, KEN Source: HO107/1633/2f/151 Henry MAJOR, Head, M, 27, Fisherman, b.Folkestone Ann MAJOR, Wife, M, 24, b.W.Hougham, KEN Susanna MAJOR, Dau, 2, b.Folkestone Sarah A. MAJOR, Dau 1month, b.Folkestone George MAJOR, Brother, S, 19, Fisherman, b.Folkestone Sarah TERRY, Sister in Law, S, 19, Dom.Servant out of Place, b.W.Hougham

      Sarah married John Warman Saunders (b 1 Apr 1851 Folkestone). The marriage was reg Marriages Dec 1870 MAJOR Sarah Ann S Elham 2a 1529 to SAUNDERS John.

      1871 UK CENSUS Dwelling: Radnor St, Folkestone, KEN (Elham) Source: RG10/1014/2/51 John W. SAUNDERS, Head, M, 20, Mariner, b.Folkestone, KEN Sarah A. S. SAUNDERS, Wife, m, 20, b.Folkestone, KEN Sarah A. SAUNDERS, Dau, 2 months, b.Folkestone, KEN

      This seems to confirm that John Warman SAUNDERS was b. Abt. 1850 in Folkestone and that his wife was "Sarah A.S." which corresponds with the following marriage information - Sarah Ann S. MAJOR. On the IGI (online) - Sarah Ann MAJOR, christened 6/6/1851, Folkestone daughter of Henry Spearpoint MAJOR and Ann.

      Advised by Irene Saunders that the S. is Spearpoint, as suspected.

      1901 UK census Sarah was 50 at 67 Dover St, Folkestone and Henry, her father, was living with her.

      Folkestone cemetery Tombstone. SAUNDERS John Warman d 1 Apr 1928 age 77. Wife Sarah Ann d 7 Dec 1927 age 76.

      --------

      The following is a grandson of John Warman Saunders and Sarah Ann Spearpoint Major per the 1901 census! Not yet sure whose son he was. Could also be illegitimate b. for one of daughters before she married?

      Albert John McK Saunders (FreeBMD Sep 1895 Saunders Albert John McK Elham 2a 1022). 1901 UK Census listed as age 5 @ 67 Dover St.
