SANDERS OF LLANBISTER AND LLANANNO

 

The parentage of Richard Sanders (died 1752) of Llanbister is not currently known but he would appear to be the nephew of that name mentioned in the will of Nathan Sanders of Llanbister, written in 1727. The will also refers to Richardís three daughters but does not name them. Also mentioned, among others, are Nathanís sister Susan Jones and his sister Brilliana, wife of Solomon Bywater.[1]

 

Some members of the Saunders or Sanders family of Llanbister and Llananno are mentioned in a series of records relating to property in Llanbister.[2]
