I have just come across the name Saffery, The Kentish name, when researching my family history. (Oyster Dredgers from Whitstable) My 7 x great grand-father Edmund Foad was married to a Frances Saffery around 1765. She was born 1746 in or around Canterbury. This is all i have as i cannot find any mention of my Edmund Foad in any record part from the birth of their son Thomas Foad in 1768 in Whitstable, Kent. As i cannot find anything of his i was wondering if you knew anything of the Saffery's as it looks my next line of enquiry. Or maybe you could put me in the direction of someone who may be able to help me. Any information at all would be greatly appreciated.
