Sandys and St Bees[edit]

Patrick Collinson in his book "Archbishop Grindal 1519-1583 The struggle for a reformed church" 1979 ISBN 0-224-01703-9 gives it as likely that both Grindal and Sandys shared a childhood in St. Bees. A branch of the Sandys family lived at Rottington Hall, the Heralds knew in 1563 the family "of St Bees in the County of Cumberland", and Sandys himself has recalled that he and Grindal had lived "familiarly" and "as brothers" and were only separated between Sandys 13th and 18th Years. Sandys kept one step behind Grindal in his subsequent career. The St Bees registers are full of Sandys. It is therefore concluded by Collinson very likely that Sandys grew up at Rottington. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dougsim (talkcontribs) 21:41, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Notable Descendants[edit]

Do we really need such a huge list of "notable" descendants? It's redundant. -- Lady Meg (talk) 04:23, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
