1Failed bridges to Virginia and New England  Mar 04, 2014
By Julie Bianchi
In a review of the book by the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography Jan. 1963 vol 71, #1 it was stated: “…the pedigree of Sandys-Sandy is welded together without giving a single authenticating reference.” And “…he indulges in errors of date, name and place.”
Having researched this family for over 30 years I can say unequivocally that the part of the genealogy dealing with the Sandys family and its bridges to the American Sandy and Sands family is terribly flawed, beginning with naming Henry Sandys who died in 1640 as the progenitor of the Virginia and North Carolina Sandy lines. There are ample surviving English records-wills and chancery- that prove this man died without living issue. The later portion of the work, dealing with the Sandy family in Washington County, Indiana towards the end of the 18th century, (William Sandy and Catherine Beck's descendants) holds up to scrutiny and can be backed by documentation.
The New England link begins incorrectly with another Henry having a son by his mother-in-law among other errors in fact.

4An interesting read. Good history as well as geneology.  Jan 09, 2014

In skimming through the book I realized right away that this was a book my husband would love to read. He's not a big reader, but there are some books worth his time and this is one of them. I felt he'd like it not just because it's his relatives in it, but more because of the interesting history it brings out.

My maiden name was Sandy, and as a history buff I was most interested. Not for the general public, but it goes along with the TV program, "who do you think you are?"
