Sanders/Saunders

#1
Hi Folks,
Needing a little help on this to see if i can tie two Sanders/Saunders families together.
First, my gr.gr.grandfather John Sanders/Saunders born c1828, the info i have on him is this.
Census Returns.
1851, John Sanders,22 visitor, Highfields, Sedgeley, Staffs, Whimsey Worker , ( colliery winding man). Head of house John Taylor.

1861, John Saunders 35 Head. Legge lane Sedgley, Engineer at pit. Wife , Rosanna, Joseph and Sophia.

1871, John Sanders,44 Head. Brierley Lane, Sedgley, Engine fitter. Wife Eliza, Joseph, Sophia, Mary A, Elizabeth, Ellen.

1881, John Sanders, 50, Head, Snyed Lane, Bloxwitch, Colliery Winder. Wife Eliza, Mary, Elizabeth, Ellen, Caroline, Emma, John.

1891, John Sanders 65,Head, Snyed Lane, Bloxwitch. Labourer. Wife Eliza, all the children from 1881+ Edward, Robert, Martha, Louisa.

1901, John Sanders, 74, Head, Sneyd Lane, Wife Eliza, Edward, Robert, Louisa, Martha.

Married 3 times,
1, Rhoda Taylor, on 8/9/1851,Bilston, Staffs. They had 1 son Joseph.
2, Rosanna Seedhouse, on 1/11/1859, Coseley, Staffs. They had 1 daughter, Sophia.
3, Eliza Louisa Bradley, on 4/9/1864,Bushbury, Staffs. They had 10 children, Mary A, Elizabeth, Ellen, Caroline, Emma, John, Edward, Robert, Louisa, Georgina.

The family i think i can tie up with are,

1841 census, Spring Wood, Skegby, Notts.
Robert Saunders,c1795,46, labourer, not born county.
Ellen '' c1796, 45 '' '' ''
Hannah '' c1818, 23 '' '' ''
William '' c1823, 18, Collier, '' '' ''
Sampson '' c1826, 15, '' '' '' ''
John '' c1828, 13, '' '' '' '' (poss. gr.gr.grandfather)
Robert '' c1830, 11, '' '' '' ''
James '' c1833, 8, '' '' ''
Joseph '' c1838, 3, '' '' ''

1851, Salop Row, Bilston

Robert Saunders, 55, Labourer at pit bank.born Wicken, Cambs.
James '' 18 coal miner '' ''
Joseph '' 13 '' '' '' ''
Hannah Wilkinson 35 Daughter Widow '' ''
Elizabeth '' 8 gr. daughter. Hol ?, Derbyshire
If this family are correct then i can tie up with Sizers/Sizars from Wicken/Soham, Cambs.
Would welcome any advice on this.

Cheers Iain :)
