Surname Saturday

Surname Saturday – Ayre (in England)

The only person I have in my family tree with this surname is Sarah Ayre Sarah is said to have married Joseph Slawson on 11 July 1739 at Islip, Northamptonshire, England, which means she would have been born about 1700-1710.

Unfortunately, the only source of this information is an online family tree – the records for Islip prior to 1775 are not yet available online, so I haven’t yet been able to do the research to verify this information for myself.

The same family tree that provided this information also shows she was buried 27 July 1790 at St Nicholas, Islip.  FreeReg does have an entry for a Sarah Slawson, buried 27 July 1790 at St Nicholas.  Sarah was a widow.
