This page is dedicated to the history of the branch of the Sayer family from Hutton Rudby, North Yorkshire.

The Sayer family appear in the registers of Hutton Rudby from their commencement in the late 16th century, and they continued to flourish in the area down to at least the early 19th century. It would appear that George, the son of John Sayer of Worsall (1486-1530), moved to Rudby sometime in the middle of the 16th century and that he was ancestral to this line. An act of administration (1616) survives for the property of his grandson Hugh Sayer (buried 29th May 1616), and a number of other probate records survive for later members of the family. A moderately substantial descendant tree exists for this line, and it is hoped to incorporate details here shortly. This line may still prove to be ancestral to the later Sayers of Stokesley (see main page), although no firm evidence has so far been uncovered.

This is the family of Ken Flounders.

Anyone interested in further details of this branch of the Sayer family, or who is able to provide additional details relevant to this branch, is invited to contact the coordinator for this page Ian Hall.
