Hello, let me firstly introduce myself I am Peter Saxelby from Castle Donington, I am replying to you because of your reference to my home town, although I don't live there anymore, my younger brother still does as does an Aunt, Patricia Kathleen Ann younger sister to my Father John Kenneth. Their Father was Wilfred John and his Father was Edward, he had a brother William (Bill)
There is a long connection between Castle Donington & the Saxelby's the local Church even has a Saxelby window, although I don't know the age of the window the Church is over 1000 years.
There was another side to the family but I know little of them, Albert was for a long time the local pharmacist, a job that was continued by his Daughter Pamela.
As you are probably aware there is a village not very far from Castle Donington called Saxelby in Leicestershire and there is a village in Lincolnshire called Saxilby, There has to be some linkbetween these villages & our Family.
If I can be of any more use to you please don't hesitate to e-mail me.
