Can you help?
My great grandfather, Seymour Harris SAUNDERS born 5th Jan. 1840 at
Little Saltrum, Devon. [ Plymouth? ] was the 2nd. son of Richard Taylor
SAUNDERS and Henrietta Louisa HARRIS married 12th Nov.1832 at St. Paul's
Henrietta died in July 1845. Richard probably remarried as he ended up
with 9 sons and 5 daughters. He moved away ending up in Mincing Lane
London and Peckham Surrey around 1864. At this time he was a Tea
In the 1881 Census he may be the Richard SAUNDERS of 1 Southfield
"Southcombe" Paignton as his will mentions a daughter Helena Beatrice
Richenda SAUNDERS whose married name was PARHAM. Helena died 18th. Dec.
Still living in 1947 was a son Rev. S.T.H.SAUNDERS.
Richard also had a daughter Caroline who may have lived at Red Hills
Exeter around 1900.
An Aunt Jane SEYMOUR is also referred to.
Seymour SAUNDERS came to New Zealand sometime before 1864.
If anyone has links with this family I would love to hear from you.
