WILLIAM SARGENT.
Edwin Everett Sargent's book, "The Sargent Record," self-published in 1899.

Since my extensive research in England, which included the examination of probate, church, naval, judicial and other records by genealogists and others; advertising in the leading daily and Episcopalian papers of London, offering a reward for information, I failed to substantiate the statements I copied in my former work, therefore I feel it incumbent on me to give the following explanation: The quotations that William, "was born in London in 1602," that his father Richard, "was a barrister at law," and his mother, "a daughter of Sir Richard Saltonstall," I could not substantiate and found much to disprove the last. two. I believe that a part of these statements I quoted from the persons making them, were conclusions drawn from a record furnished them about fifty years ago, of a 'Richard Sargent, a justice, who died at Dinton, England, in 1665, who had a son William." But the Dinton Parish records show that the children (if William the son of Richard, were baptised there from 1630, to 1634, and that Richard died aged 79. He therefore would have been but thirteen years old when our ancestor William was born, if born in 1602. That William "was appointed midshipman in the navy," I found no record. That William "sailed with Captain John Smith, in 1614, to Jamestown, Virginia, stopping at Agawam, Massachusetts, en route," may be true as to his being with Captain Smith at Agawam, as he settled there afterwards. But that he went to Virginia, as that writer alleges, is questioned, as history does not give Capt. Smith as being in Virginia later than 1609. William was a seaman in his younger years as he is designated as a "seaman" or "mariner" in his will and other documents, but he no doubt later in life followed other occupations with it. That his father Richard held a position in the "Royal Navy," another tradition advanced by others, is not confirmed, so far as I can learn, by the navy records. As to William being born in London, and in 1602, it may be claimed that it has been a tradition so long it must be true, but I have proven so many traditions untrue, I am skeptical in this matter. As the birth of William of Malden, whose record was written by Aaron Sargent of Somerville, Mass., was known to have been in 1602, and the two Williams lived so near each other in Massachusetts, their records of birth might have got "mixed up." Then I have a letter from a person in England stating that he was born in 1598, but cannot learn as there is any authority for it. The nearest record to the one claimed in 1602, I have been able to find in England, of a William born to a Richard, is the following from the Abby church, Bath: "Marriages. 1602, November, Richard Sargent, and Katherine Steevenes the 22 day. Ano Dom., 1630, Jening Walters and Joane Sergeant, were married April 15." "Baptisms. Elizabeth the daughter of Richard Sargeant, 28 day 1603, October. 1606 June, William the Sonne of Richard Sargeant the 28th. March 1609, Joane the daughter of Richard Sargent was baptized the 26th." As there is no further record of the father or son found there, they may have gone to London and William shipped from there. At first I was not inclined to believe this William was our ancestor or from this part of England, for the following reasons: There were many Sargents, and some whose given names were Richard, in Cambridge and Suffolk counties, England, and as John Winthrop and some of the others who settled at Agawam, Mass., and changed its name to Ipswich, were from Ipswich, Suffolk county, and vicinity, England, I was inclined to believe William was from there. But since learning that the father of William's first wife, "Quartermaster John Perkins," was at Agawam in August, 1631, in a short time after arriving in America, and that he came from near Bath, England, that if William was from there and with Capt. Smith in 1614, when the latter landed at Agawam and wrote up its beauties and advantages. William may have returned and induced John Perkins and others to emigrate. The first recorded record I bond of William is in the General Court records of Massachusetts Colony in April, 1633, by an act by said court protecting certain grantees of land then at Agawam, now Ipswich, Massachusetts., in their rights, and ''William Sarjeant was one of them. The next record is that of his oath of allegiance and fidelity in 1639, and his name is recorded ''Willi : Sergent,'' but neither is as he spelt it. It is shown by records and deeds that he was later one of the first settlers at Wessacucon, now Newbury, MA, 1635; at Winnacumet, now Hampton, N. H., in 1638; at South Merrimac, now Salisbury, Mass., in 1639, and that "Wm. Sargent, townsman and commoner of Salisbury, tax rate Dec. 25, 1650, 7s. 4d." He was next located at Salisbury New Town, now Amesbury and Merrimac, in 1655, where he resided until his death in 1675. The statement in the town history of Amesbury, "that William married for his first wife Judith, a sister of his second wife, Elizabeth Perkins," the author informs me he made on information of another, and had no other authority. The genealogy of the John Perkins's family gives no daughter Judith, and that Elizabeth was born in 1618, at Newent, Gloucestershire, England, and therefore old enough by 1634 to have been the mother of Mary, the eldest child of William, who married Philip Challis, and Mary old enough to be a mother in 1653, when her first child was born. This therefore refutes the marriage of William to Judith, and also the idea that Elizabeth was too young to have been the mother of the eldest children of William. The date of their marriage was probably about 1633, as she came to America with her parents in the ship Lion in the spring of 1631, and they were both at Agawam prior to 1633. I found no date of her death, but it was before Sept. 18, 1670, for he married on that date Joanna Powell, who survived him and married Richard Currier of Amesbury. Owing to a lack and contradiction of records, there is an uncertainty as to William's children, their order, dates of birth and death. Where there are two records which conflict, I have used the Salisbury, if that is one of the two. There is a record of "Mary b. June 17, 1647," and no record of her death, and it is not probable a second child was named Mary after the one who married Mr. Challis, the one named in William's will. So I am convinced it Should have been "Lydia," Of whom I find no record of birth, hut "died in 1661I," and have given the former under the latter name. The "Elizabeth" given as the "wife of William died 1641" must have been the daughter "Elizabeth" who "died July 14, 1641" He was one of the "Prudential" men in Amesbury in 1675; he resided in the part of the town known as the ''West Parish,'' and built a house near the church and academy. He died in March, 1675, and was buried in the cemetery at the '' Ferry.’’ His will was probated at Salem Mass., in 1675. The inventory of William's estate (as near as can be made out) amounted to 191 pounds.

MORE NOTES:
William Sergent 2d, also of Gloucester, "mariner," appeared in Gloucester in 1678; m. Mary Duncan; descendants given in Babson's Gloucester, pp. 150-7. It is stated that he was the son of Wm. and Mary (Epes) Sargent of Exeter, Eng., Barbadoes and Bristol, Eng., Where Wm. 2d was born.

There was still another William Sargent, of Charlestown, 1638-45. It is stated, G.R. 1885, p. 291, apparently on the authority of Somerby, that the two William Sargents, of Amesbury and Charlestown were brothers, and sons of Richard Sargent of London. The eldest son, William, held a position in the navy, was left behind in Virginia, where he married his first wife, Judith Perkins, and had by her two daughters. His parents, supposing him to be dead, gave the name William to a child of subsequent birth. This William afterwards came to Charlestown in this country. M. Ames., p. 102, gives nearly the same story, but states that his first wife Judith Perkins d. abt 1633, leaving three daus.; Lydia, Sarah, who must have died young, and Mary. (See p. 282 (John Perkins, of Ipswich, b. abt 1590)) He was married to Elizabeth Perkins on Sep 18 1640 in Salisbury, Ma.
