Seeking the Saker family from London. The earliest I can find the name is about 1840's, when a vaudeville actor named SAKER was given a benefit at an East London theatre. My father was John Henry Saker, born London 30 Jan 1916, emigrated to South Africa in Feb or MArch 1948. He was a draftsman in Town Planning. Married Frances Edwards about 1943. One child - Joy Frances Saker - 18/05/45 The surname Saker could have 2 derivations - one an occupational name - the man who looked after the SakerFalcons in the mews, or a middle''eastern family name of ancient lineage, named after the falcon 'falco saker' which is still used in the Middle East for falconry, and is a prestigous bird to own. You'll find pictures of these birds in any good falconry book. There are entries in many of the heraldry books claiming that Saker comes from Sacker (weaver of coarse cloth) and this initial mistake has been perpetuated in more recent books, but don't be fooled - we Sakers are named after the bird, count on it.

Joseph, Daniel and Richard are frequent names in our Hazard family, with links to St. Magnus the Martyr. Joseph (born 1787) was in the Commissary General's Office and lived in Lambeth. His brother Daniel was a veterinary surgeon who moved out to Hampstead. Others in the family may be printers or wool-brokers. Would love to make contact with others researching this name.
