Hello Julie,

Can you please try to find John & Sarah Goodchild in 1861 and Sarah in 1871.

Thanks. I'd like to see age for John and occupation.

How many John Roberts do we have? 4? or 5?

b. abt 1814
b. 1839 d. ?
b. 1865 d. 1871
b. 1871 d. ?

Just to confuse things more. A John R Sadler age 44 arrived on the Chimborazo 7 Aug 1882 - port of arrival Sydney NSW. John had been ditto'd as Irish.
Hi Dave,

The Trove has an article for a John Robert Sadlers funeral in1887. He was a member of the Ancient Order Forresters. Dose'nt mentioned any family though.

Hello Julie,

Thanks. Yes, that's why I ruled it out as the death of the one born 1871.

Ok if we forget about the one in NSW we still have some deaths to find in England and the 1871 marriage to consider.


Ok the chemist is explained and not part of the family I'm chasing:

John Robert Sadler
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
parents: John Cox Ipsley Sadler,​ Mary

The one born 1865 who died 1871 is probably his son.

The possible baptism for Jane Love had father as William Charles and the marriage has father as George Lore.

Do we know when John R b. 1812 the baker/licensed victualler died?

Do we know when John R b. 1838 the wood turner died? After 1881. Did he marry in 1871 but no children survived to 1881? Beatrice being the first born to Jane Love?
Hello Julie,

Something still does not add up.

Births Sep 1863
SADLER Emma Clara Marylebone 1a 398

Emma Clara Sadler c. 19 May 1880 John Robert Sadler, Jane Eliza Sadler Bethnal Green St Thomas Tower Hamlets

RG10 Piece 3403 Folio 20 Page 8
Civil Parish: Louth
County: Lincolnshire
Address: 5 Edward Street
William Henry Sadler head age 29 occ watchmaker born St Lukes London
Alice wife age 26 born Holborn
Jessie Naomi dau age 2 born Abergavenney
Emma Clara niece age 7 born Marylebone

William Henry Sadler
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
birth: 21 Feb 1842
parents: James Sadler,​ Jane

That does not make William Henry a brother of John Robert b. 1838.

There is another one baptised St Lukes' with father = James.
1871 census on 2 April living in Shoreditch has son John R born Marylebone then it must be this one:

Births Sep 1865
SADLER John Robert Marylebone 1a 401

with a baptism after Jane died:

John Robert Sadler 2 May 1871 John Robert Sadler, Jane Sadler Haggerston St Augustine Hackney

Deaths Jun 1871
Sadler John Robert 6 Shoreditch 1c 117

If Jane Eliza died in 1869 or 1870... Emma Clara off with her uncle ?

This marriage is of no use giving John junior a mother:

Marriages Sep 1871
Cockman Eliza Sarah W Ham 4a 17
Sadler John Robert W. Ham 4a 17

Emma Sadler dau of John and Jane - details match the one with her uncle.

I'm not having any luck in finding John's death registration. The electoral rolls have a Beatrice H Sadler from 1945 - 1953 Islington. I've not been able to find a death for Beatrice or a marriage.
Thanks Julie.

I'm wondering if two of the three baptisms at St Luke's have an error and father should be John Robert and not James.
Hi Dave,

Whether there has been a mistranscription somewhere, but father James occupation is Baker, also the same day they had another son baptised Edward Alford Sadler.
