I would be interested in sharing info with anyone with knowledge of any SANDS born in or around Sculcoates, Hull, East Yorkshire or West Ham, London.  Their trade was in Coopering (barrel making).

Hello David,

Thank you for your reply on My Heritage and.... if I'm not mistaken... you're my cousin!  Your mum is Rita (my dad's sister) and your dad is Brian.

If I am right I'm really pleased to be in contact with you as I haven't seen you for more than 50 years.  I hope your mum and dad are OK.  I don't get much news from the family in England.  I'm in New Zealand as your mum will know.

I hope you and your family are well. Please write to me at:  kevinjsands@hotmail.com  if you would.

As for our Sands ancestry, and coopering, I don't know much (mainly because I've been in NZ most of my life and my dad died in 1980) but I'm happy to share what I know.

Best wishes,

Kevin

I have a Barnabus and Mary Sands who emigrated from Ireland to Chatham, New Brunswick in 1846. I wonder if there is a connection?

Hi Andrea,

Thank you for replying. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a connection because we have no Barnabus in our family tree and also (so far) no connection with Ireland.  The name SANDS does occur in Ireland and several regions of England also.

Kind regards,

Kevin
