Thanks. Yes I have his marriage to Elizabeth Lloyd and her baptism. Her
sister Sarah married Mark Harford junior and it he that is definitely
related to me (though not an ancestor). Unfortunately Joseph's will does not
give his age but as Elizabeth Lloyd was born in 1730 I am assuming that
Joseph was born around the same time give or take 10 years. There are a few
candidates on the Devon IGI, one of them being a first cousin to my
ancestor. But that assumes that Joseph was from the Exeter area. It is
possible he was not and he may even have not been from Devon at all -
perhaps Gloucestershire as there was a merchant family of Sanders in Bristol
around that time, though thee appears to be no Joseph in that family. I have
trawled the Internet including Google Books and the Open Library and there
are several references to Joseph and his sons I relation to the Exeter Bank
but nothing that gives any background on Joseph.
Thanks for your interest.
