Dear Wendy, I have been trying to research the Seager/s family for some time now. The spelling seems to vary with every recorded entry, this seems also to be true for most of other peoples Seager family trees. However I know that my Seager/s family lived in Tobago for some time between 1830 - 1866. My g/grandmother and g/g/grandmother were indeed both born in Tobago. They, some or maybe all of that family appear to have returned to London in about 1866. The first record of their return that I have found is William John Seager/s born in East London in 1868. One of the theories put forward for the travel to and from Tobago was that the head of the family at the time John Seagers was a sailor who stayed in Tobago and married there. After raising a family he possibly died in Tobago or soon after returning to the U.K. There is no ecord of John Seagers living with his family in 1871 on the census returns. We now know that of the children who returned they appear to have married and in turn had their own children. The only sense of cnnection that I can offer to you is the surname plus a family tradition of wanderlust and maybe the 'sailing' connection. I have found it absolutely imposssible to find any real evidence of this family which is extremely frustrating. Even a very enjoyable trip to Tobago didn't reveal any new clues. I am sorry that I can't offer anything more helpful but I thought that you might appreciate some sort of acknowledgement of your personal quest. Keep trying and Good luck. Lydia Wheeler.
