My Great Grandmother was a Sleaford and I have a couple of hundred of Sleafords in my tree, not all are my family but then again they could be as you may have the missing information to connect the family groups together.
Who was Robert Sleaford who settled in Michigan - does any one know. Do all the American Sleafords stem from Robert?
I know of one family that emigated to Australia but were there more? There were certainly two convicts transported - did they have families.
If you have any information, I would be delighted to consolidate the information.
My tree can be found on www.rootsweb.com
, a search on "Sleaford" will bring up my tree recognisable by jackyc
