What We Know About This Family

An Overview of Their Lives

John Martin (Sarah Northey's husband) was mentioned in the will of her father, John Northey, dated 8 Nov 1688 as his son-in-law. The sons of John and Sarah Martin each received bequests and were mentioned by name as "her oldest son John Martin" and the others, Peter, Samuel, Robert, and Thomas in that order. The only son for whom I could find a date of both birth and death was Thomas.

Scant details are available for these sons, other than our direct ancestor, Thomas. Peter married twice and had at least one child with his first wife. His second wife survived him. Robert Martin married Bethiah Bartlett, the daughter of John Bartlett, who was the brother of our direct ancestor, Robert Bartlett, and Bethiah Devereux, the daughter of our direct ancestor John, Sr. They had at least one confirmed child.

Our direct ancestors Thomas Martin and Eleanor Knott (whose mother was also a daughter of John Devereux) were the parents of six children, two of whom were also our direct ancestors. Sarah Martin married Joseph Pedrick, another mariner in a family of successful mariners, and Knott Martin married Sarah Arnold and had two sons who were also our direct ancestors and both sea captains.

Proof of Relationship

Proof of relationship is established with the will and vital records.

What Else We Need to Learn

The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.

The research on this family is complete, but a later check may reveal more information.
