William Saire Esquire to Maryland 1633/34
Posted by: v. suzanne sears (ID *****1949) Date: July 29, 2012 at 19:43:42
  of 994

The Esquire William Saire emigrated (vs. indenture or other manner) to Maryland via the Ark and Dove transports of 1633/4

As he travelled with Nicholas Fairfax of the infamous Fairfax family that inherited 300.000 acres of Virginia to dole out as land grants:
the Fairfax and Sayers families of Yorkshire married into each other.......

It can be assumed that this William could well be of this lineage: the Catholic Yorkshire Sayers......who were fabulously weathly: but persecuted as Catholics
and thus open to Lord Baltimores escape to Maryland and his goals for Catholics there.

This William Saire married an E. Lorell
if that helps as a lead.

Its unlikely the spelling Saire survived in North America: more likely further searches would be under: Sayer, Sayers, Sayre, Saeir, and Sears or Seirs...even Sires.
