Looking for any information to explain, support or debunk the claim made by my GGGrandmother about the SANDLANDs in Wem that "Years ago it [the Sandland family] was Sandford which is the first family knighted in Shropshire."  I think I remember some family suggestion that there had been a feud that necessitated an escape "across the border." 

The oldest certain Sandland in my line is Thomas Sandland, born in Cotton in about 1787, but I believe it is reasonable that this line continues for at least several generations earlier.  I've looked pretty carefully at the online Shropshire Parish Registers covering Wem and have a good Idea of the Sandlands listed there beginning in 1585; I'd be grateful for information about  of those Sandlands.  All my research has been online since I live in Indiana, USA.

My Sandland Ancesters are from Wem Shropshire  dating to Thomas Sandlane (Sandlande, Sandland) in 1520.  Edward Sandland born 1802 left Shropshire and settled in Connecticut. My Grandmother was Edith Sandland. Hope this is some help, I believe we are propbably related. I currently live in Cincinnati Ohio.

Judith,

My SANDLAND ancestor who came to the US was Matilda Sandland (b.1871), married to George Bailey.  They came to Nebraska.  Matilda and her father had been born in Staffordshire, but her grandfather, John Sandland (b.1818), and John’s father Thomas (b.1787) were born in Shropshire in the parish of Wem. John’s sister, Elizabeth Sandland (Brown) lived her whole life in the Wem area.  Earlier than Thomas my line becomes quite speculative – based only on family trees in Ancestry.com and study of online Wem parish registers. 

If you recognize any of these names or can suggest ways you have, or I could, document my earlier line I would be very pleased to know.

Thank you,

Jean Beckman
