red mail Sargeant or Sarjeant of Birmingham
Ive just discovered that one of my ancestors was probably a Sarjeant not spelt with a G as previously thought. She was Elizabeth Sarjeant married to John Deag and her wedding cert states a Samuel Sarjeant and a Lydia Sarjeant who I believe were her brother and sister in law. The wedding took place in 1813 so would love to hear of anyone else who has Sarjeant links in Birmingham around that time.
