Saunders Genealogy & History

Saunders is an English surname, coming partly from the Greek Alexander and also from the town of Sanderstead in Surrey. Sanderstead was originally spelled more like Sondenstede, Old English for the house on sandy land, while Alexander means defender of men, a popular name after the Crusades, when it was brought back by men fighting as Knights of St. John. Saunders family history begins in the fourteenth century, with William Sandre acting as a witness in Kent in 1316. Saunders genealogy includes many famous people, like eighteenth century British Admiral Charles Saunders, Visa CEO Joseph Saunders, and Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Joe Saunders.
