  1. 4 years ago, on a trip around Italy, my husband and I met a member of a Sanders clan who lives in Sydney, Australia. His immediate family hail from London, Middlesex and Surrey. In the early 60’s he emigrated to Australia. Last year he emailed me and asked me to trace his family history and I have found his earliest Sanders ancestor to be Thomas Sanders of Kenton, who married Martha Bond in 1707 – the same as yours! Thomas is his 6th great grandfather.

    Please contact me directly if you would like to get in touch with him. I am sure he would be delighted to hear from you although I am saving most of the details of his tree until his visit to the UK next year. I am happy to share anything I have on the family and am still seeking a living relative who I hope you may be able to help me with.

  2. Dear Lynne
    I also am descended from John Curtis and Ann Moran through their daughter Catherine and George Eccleston. I am their third great-grandson.
    In two weeks, my wife and I will be visiting Ireland and I am hoping that I might be able to do a bit more research on the ground about Ann as she certainly seems to have been a remarkable woman.
    I am trying to resolve a number of discrepancies between various items of information in my possession.
    The best information seems to indicate that she was convicted in Trim in Co Meath in 1797 (coincidentally the year that John arrived in Sydney)in connection with political activities and that she was held in jail in Ireland for five years before being transported to Australia on the Hercules in November 1801, arriving here on 26 June 1802. One record in the State Library implies that the prisoners on the Hercules were convicted for offences in the “late rebellion” which can only mean the United Irishmen in 1798 from the context.
    I should be grateful for any information you can provide that might assist with my research in Ireland.
    While visiting my son and his family in London after Ireland, I intend to return to Bristol to undertake more research into John Curtis. I obtained a lot of information 18 months ago including records of the marriage of John Curtis and Jane Purrier and of the baptisms of all 11 of their children in St Philip and St Jacobs Church in Cheese Lane, Bristol. From these records, I managed to visit the three streets in which they lived at the times of the births of different children. For most of their married life they lived in Cheese Lane, near the Church. I suspect that as his accountancy practice failed and he got into financial difficulties, the family was forced to move to less salubrious accommodation.
    I also managed to obtain copies of one press report of John’s conviction and death sentence at Gloucester Assizes for coining. The judge must have been feeling sympathy for John because another man convicted and sentenced to death at the same sittings was immediately taken for “execution of the sentence” but the judge commuted John’s sentence to transportation for life.
    After returning to Australia in April 2008, I managed to locate descendants of John’s and Jane’s youngest child in New York.

  3. Dear Paul, I do appreciate your info. I only have the READY OR NOT Book that Phil Ready put together in the 1990s. I think he attributes most of his knowledge on the Curtis Family to Ken Eccleston so I would think you would have more info than we do. I envy you your travels and being able to picture the places the family comes from. My niece is in UK at the moment and has been asking for addresses to look up and my brother frequently goes searching. I hope your trip goes well and would love any more details you can pass on. Yrs Lynne.
