The Sadd family is one of Maldon's better-known families: John Sadd and Sons were major employers in building and the timber trade, starting with a small business at Fullbridge in 1729 and remaining major employers until 1994.
John Granger Sadd, like many Victorians, had a large family of eleven children. His tenth child was a girl, Myra Eleanor Sadd, born 3 October 1872, and she was to become famous in her own right, not as a businesswoman but as a campaigner for women's suffrage (votes for women) Coincidentally, 1872 was the year that the National Society for Women's Suffrage was formed.
