John Sadler or Sadleir (a 1544)
1. John Sadler of Stratford-on-Avon (bur 12.03.1583, alderman & bailiff)
  BIFR1976 reports that John was a close friend of John Shakespeare, father of the playwright William, and was related to Hamnet Sadler who was godfather of (William) Shakespeare's twin children, Hamnet & Judith. His family name is normally identified as Sadler (rather than Sadleir) but for later generations it appears to be identified as Sadleir. Our move from one spelling to the other has been done to coincide with the move of one of his descendants to Ireland but this is somewhat presumptuous.
