AD 1550?-1714

Sandifort (also Sandiforth)

For younger generations of ancestors who are descended from this family:
see page on Emaus

This family's earliest origins are probably in Norway, where it took its name from the "Sandefjord". They could well have been Vikings. Our ancestors may already have moved to England in medieval times. There is a reference to a Richard de Sandiforth who was living in Wakefield near York in 1286. Much later, in the early seventeenth century, Jeremy Sandiforth moved to Ouddorp on Goeree-Overflakkee in Holland. An interesting article by T.N. Schelhaas on the oldest generations of the Sandifort family was published in the Dutch genealogical magazine "Gens Nostra", September 1999.
