(2nd Grandson) Probate Agreement11 February 1741/42John Hawes, representing himself and his brothers and sisters, participated in the discussion on 11 February 1741/42 to prepare and finalize an agreement between the heirs and assigns of John Hawes, late of Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), yeoman, deceased. The probate document identified each of the parties to the agreement, and their relationships to the deceased, as:

James Heaton of Rutland in the County of Worcester, yeoman, on behalf of himself and on behalf of his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of the deceased John Hawes.

James Heaton, again, on behalf of his brother Samuel Heaton of Hebron, in the County of Windham in the Colony of Connecticut, yeoman, and his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes. James identified Samuel Heaton further by adding "alias Samuel Heaton, his brother, of Black River in the Jerseys in America, yeoman, and Sarah his wife, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes deceased."

Joseph Pratt of Dedham, yeoman, on behalf of himself and his wife Lydia (Hawes) Pratt, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes.

Ebenezer Ellis of Dedham, a wheelwright, on his own behalf and also on behalf of Samuel Everett. Samuel Everett was an heir of the deceased John Hawes as the son and only child of Mary (Hawes) Everett, late of Dedham, deceased, who had been the eldest daughter of the deceased John Hawes. Samuel Everett had assigned his share to Ebenezer Ellis

Hannah Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Elizabeth Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

On 10 March 1741/42 in Boston, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes and John Hawes acknowledged the instrument to be their voluntary act, and on 31 July 1742 in Boston, James Heaton and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes made their acknowledgements.2
(2nd Grandson) Estate and Land11 February 1742Under the 11 February 1742 agreement, because John's father, the deceased's son John Hawes, also deceased, had already received his full share in his father's estate during his lifetime, the agreement did not provide John and his siblings with an additional share in their grandfather's estate. They were included, however, among the other 6 heirs and, collectively, received a one-seventh part of 14 acres on Hawes Hill. The agreement then outlined how each of the seven parts of the 14 acres on Hawes Hill was to be divided. Joseph and Lydia (Hawes) Pratt had the first lot, adjoining his meadow; James and Eliony (Hawes) Heaton received the second lot; Samuel and Sarah (Hawes) Heaton received the third lot; Hannah Hawes, the fourth and Elizabeth Hawes, the fifth; grandson John Hawes, the sixth lot; and Ebenezer Ellis, the seventh lot adjoining Old Field. The lots were to be southeasterly and northwesterly and to be of unequal breadth at the southeasterly end, and also have convenient cart paths leading from the brook, to and over each of the lots.2

Father*John Hawes1,2 b. 17 Dec 1656, d. b 1741/42
Mother*Sarah Deering1,2 b. c 1662
Research Notes*Why wouldn't Sarah's son, Isaac Heaton, have known the name of his mother? This worrisome question puzzled me as a child and, as we began our Heaton family research project, we still had no answer. A handwritten pedigree chart, with names and dates of our Heaton family descending from our immigrant Nathaniel Heaton, had been prepared for distribution within the family in 1941 by Roy Henry Heaton in Montana, a 2nd great-grandson of Isaac Heaton, and a 5th great-grandson of the immigrant Nathaniel Heaton. It had been our understanding, when we received a copy of the handwritten chart in the late 1960s, that the information had been culled and copied from notes made by Isaac Heaton, himself, from information that had been kept by his ancestors and expanded upon by later generations. The handwritten chart incorrectly recorded a duplicate entry, and generation, for Isaac's father, Samuel Heaton, son of Nathaniel and grandson of the immigrant Nathaniel, with Samuel's wife recorded as "Susanna Howe". The second entry for Isaac's father, Samuel Heaton, identified him as Samuel Jr., son of Samuel, grandson of Nathaniel and great-grandson of the immigrant Nathaniel, with Samuel's wife recorded as "Sarah Hancock".

A second, typewritten expansion of the handwritten chart, was prepared in 1944, again by Roy Henry Heaton, and included additional information obtained from various Heaton family members. Roy sent the original copy of his expanded document to his 1st cousin, Arthur Duane Heaton, in North Dakota who sent it to his son in California to have it typed by the secretaries in his son's office. The finished, typed copy, as distributed to members of the Heaton family, contained the same incorrect extra generation, and the confusion with Samuel identified twice, first in the Third Generation with wife "Susannah Howe" and then in the Fourth Generation as Samuel Jr. with wife "Sarah Hancock." The typewritten, and expanded, version also included the surprising and new information that Sarah Hancock was "probably an aunt of John Hancock". (These family stories take on a life of their own, don't they?)

Our path to learning about Isaac's mother turned out to take a surprising turn. Her name was the easy part. She was Sarah Hawes, and she doesn't really qualify as a "Brick Wall" because she was not at all difficult to identify. It's the other things we learned about her along the way that make us wonder now. What's the rest of her story? Why was she ignored, or forgotten, or misremembered by her Heaton family? We're hoping that somewhere, someone can share the answers to these questions.3,4,5,6,7
Birth*1686Sarah Hawes may have been born as early as 1686 in Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England),8
Birth13 August 1689 However... her birth date was reported as 13 August 1689 in Dedham in the Hawes source which also stated that some of the information on the Sarah Hawes and Samuel Heaton family was received by a third party. Hawes also included a notation that the birth date of 13 August 1689 had been verified in the Vital Records of Dedham. This researcher, to date, has not found that verification. We found only one Sarah born to John "Hawse" in the Dedham records. Her date of birth was recorded only as the year "1686". So... maybe "our" Sarah was actually born on 13 August 1686, and not in 1689, or the earlier Sarah died before the second Sarah's birth and was not recorded and/or the third party received or delivered incorrect information to Hawes regarding the year. Would Sarah "fudge" the year of her birth to her family to make herself 3 years younger? It's possible...1,8
Marriage*10 December 1706She married Samuel Heaton, son of Nathaniel Heaton and Mary ______, on 10 December 1706 in Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,9,4,6,7
Relationship Note1713Samuel's brother James would marry Sarah's sister Eliony in 1713.10
Relocationbetween 1734 and 1736 Sometime between 1734 and 1736, the three oldest of Sarah and Samuel Heaton's sons, Samuel, Jabesh and Daniel, left Connecticut and moved to an area on the Black River near Mount Olive, Morris County, New Jersey, with plans to establish an iron works. How long they operated, or how successfully, is not known, however the mountain range there was rich in iron for many years. It is believed by many descendants of this Heaton family that the boys' father, Samuel Heaton, journeyed with them from Connecticut, and assisted them in setting up their business in New Jersey. If the elder Samuel was with them initially, he also returned, before the spring of 1736, to his wife and younger children in Connecticut. His sons, though, remained in New Jersey, operating their business until they eventually ran out of trees for charcoal.11,12,2,13
Land Records*27 February 1737/38 On 27 February 1737/38 Samuel Heaton and his wife Sarah sold their land bordering on North Pond in Hebron to Godfree Tarbox.14
Relocation*Following the sale of their Connecticut property in 1738, the movements and residences of Sarah and Samuel Heaton become unclear. In Sarah's father's probate agreement dated 11 February 1742, Samuel and Sarah are identified as residents of Hebron, Windham County, Connecticut and on that same date, in the same document, Samuel is identified also as of the Black River area of New Jersey. We suspect that, at the time, Samuel was in New Jersey with the couple's three oldest sons, and may have been preparing to move there permanently with the rest of his family.15
(2nd Daughter) Probate Agreement11 February 1741/42Sarah's brother-in-law James Heaton, representing his brother Samuel Heaton and Samuel's wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton, participated in the discussion on 11 February 1741/42 to prepare and finalize an agreement between the heirs and assigns of John Hawes, late of Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), yeoman, deceased. The probate document identified each of the parties to the agreement, and their relationships to the deceased, as:

James Heaton of Rutland in the County of Worcester, yeoman, on behalf of himself and on behalf of his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of the deceased John Hawes.

James Heaton, again, on behalf of his brother Samuel Heaton of Hebron, in the County of Windham in the Colony of Connecticut, yeoman, and his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes. James identified Samuel Heaton further by adding "alias Samuel Heaton, his brother, of Black River in the Jerseys in America, yeoman, and Sarah his wife, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes deceased."

Joseph Pratt of Dedham, yeoman, on behalf of himself and his wife Lydia (Hawes) Pratt, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes.

Ebenezer Ellis of Dedham, a wheelwright, on his own behalf and also on behalf of Samuel Everett. Samuel Everett was an heir of the deceased John Hawes as the son and only child of Mary (Hawes) Everett, late of Dedham, deceased, who had been the eldest daughter of the deceased John Hawes. Samuel Everett had assigned his share to Ebenezer Ellis

Hannah Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Elizabeth Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Grandson John Hawes on behalf of himself and his brothers and sisters. They were all identified as the children of John Hawes of Dedham, deceased, who had been a son of the deceased John Hawes. The other grandchildren, his brothers and sisters, were not named.

Daughter-in-Law Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes, widow of Samuel Hawes, late of Dedham, husbandman, deceased, on behalf of herself and her children. Her husband, the children's father, had been a son of the deceased John Hawes.

The agreement was signed by James Heaton, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes, John Hawes and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes. On 10 March 1741/42 in Boston, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes and John Hawes acknowledged the instrument to be their voluntary act, and on 31 July 1742 in Boston, James Heaton and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes made their acknowledgements.15
(2nd Daughter) Estate and Land11 February 1742Under the 11 February 1742 agreement, Samuel Heaton and his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton received £34 15s in moveables as their full share in the estate. Additionally, they, and each of the other heirs, received a one-seventh part of 14 acres on Hawes Hill.

The agreement then outlined how each of the seven parts of the 14 acres on Hawes Hill was to be divided. Joseph and Lydia (Hawes) Pratt had the first lot, adjoining his meadow; James and Eliony (Hawes) Heaton received the second lot; Samuel and Sarah (Hawes) Heaton received the third lot; Hannah Hawes, the fourth and Elizabeth Hawes, the fifth; grandson John Hawes, the sixth lot; and Ebenezer Ellis, the seventh lot adjoining Old Field. The lots were to be southeasterly and northwesterly and to be of unequal breadth at the southeasterly end, and also have convenient cart paths leading from the brook, to and over each of the lots.15
DesertionNovember 1743According to divorce documents filed four years later, Sarah left her husband Samuel in Connecticut in November 1743 with plans to relocate to the Black River area of Morris County, New Jersey. The documents stated she had no plans to return to Connecticut, or to her husband. The couple had been married 37 years and had 9 children, ranging in age from 36 to 12 years. The couple's movements are, again, unclear. It is not known if Sarah ever reached New Jersey or where Samuel or their children were living in 1743.16,14
Divorce Filing*14 September 1747 On 14 September 1747 Samuel Heaton of Lebanon, Windham County, Connecticut, petitioned the Superior Court to grant him a bill of divorce from his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton. The evidence submitted to the court included a transcript, prepared on 2 April 1747, of their Dedham marriage record. Samuel's petition stated that he was married to one Sarah Hawes on 10 December 1706, and lived with her and did all the duties of a loving, kind and faithful husband to her until sometime in the month of November 1743, at which time she departed from him to some parts of the Jersey with a design never to return and live with him again and that, without any just cause given her by the petitioner, she did then and has ever since deserted him and has not since performed any one of the duties of a wife to him and hath broken her marriage covenant, for a time period of more than three years. The confirmatory testimony of Joseph Phelps, written at Hebron in September of 1748 reported that Sarah Heaton, wife to Samuel Heaton of Lebanon in the County of Windham did some time in the month of November in the year 1743 set out to go to a place called Black River "beyond York Government", as he understood, with a load of goods on her horse, and had not heard that she had returned home to her husband, and had often heard that she had not.17,16,14
Death*circa 1769The date and place of Sarah's death is not known, although the year may have been circa 1769. The Hawes source, noting that some of the information used had been obtained from a third source, stated that Sarah died in Flanders (Roxbury), New Jersey about 1769. The same source reported that her husband Samuel had died there also about 1756. While none of the Heaton sources mentioned Sarah's death at all, they did all report that Samuel died in New Jersey, with the incorrect time period of between 1732 and 1737. Both Samuel and Sarah were definitely still alive when Samuel divorced her in 1747. The "Sarah Heaton, wife of John Porter" source stated that no probate record has been found in either Connecticut or New Jersey relating to Sarah (Hawes) Heaton or her husband Samuel Heaton.14,18,19,4
