50. Sarah ROUTLEDGE [8263] (David5, John4, Richard3, David2, Richard1) was born on 01 Sep 1914 in Wokington Cumberland England and died in Apr 1994 in Lytham St Anne's Lancashire England at age 79.

General Notes: At the time of her marriage, Sarah was living at 5 High Street,Workington, Cumbria.
She was a great one for talking about her family history, and I recall her saying that her mother's family, the Danson's, were Sea Captain's, (a fact which I have since verified) who came over to England from Denmark,sailing around the top of Scotland and landing at Whitehaven, in Cumbria.Whilst on the the journey Captain William Danson's wife gave birth to a daughter, whom they called Thisbe after the name of the ship 'The Thisbe.'
She also told of how one morning her young sister Jean woke up and told her mother that she had had a strange dream. I think that she was about 5or 6 at the time. She said that she had gone through seven gates, each one being more ornate than the last. When she had gone through the seventh she was surrounded by friendly people, including several children. After describing these people, her mother recognised them as dead family members. One child in particular struck her as being a child who had died just before her daughter had been born. She thought the dream rather perculiar but dismissed it. Seven days later, on her wayhome from school, Jean became ill. She grew rapidly worse, and sadly died later that day. Then her mother recalled the seven gates, each of which could be seen to have implied a day of life which her daughter had left,and the people through the seventh were in heaven! I recall very vividlymy grandmother telling me this family story.

Sarah married Charles William SANDERSON [8268] [MRIN: 4041] on 06 Jun 1936 in Evangelical Church Gordon Street Workington Cockermouth Cumbria England. Charles was born on 20 Jul 1912 in Atcham Shropshire England and died on 30 Jul 1997 in Lytham St Anne's Lancashire England at age 85.
