John Packard1

Marriage*He married Judith Winslow.2
Land Transfer*2 February 1737In consideration of the paternal love and affection he had for his son-in-law Thomas Hooper and his daughter Sarah, who was identified as the wife of Thomas Hooper, John Packard deeded a parcel of land in Bridgewater to them on 2 February 1737. The Hooper section of Mitchell's 1840 Early History of Bridgewater stated that Sarah Hooper was the daughter of Nathaniel, Samuel or John Packard, and the Packard section of the same source named Nathaniel as the father of the Sarah who married Thomas Hooper. From the deed transfer we can conclude that she was the daughter of John.3,2,4,1

Father*John Packard2

Birth*1705Sarah Packard was born in 1705.1
Marriage*18 January 1721/22She married Thomas Hooper, son of John Hooper and Sarah Harden, on 18 January 1721/22 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,1,2
Land Transfer*2 February 1737In consideration of the paternal love and affection he had for his son-in-law Thomas Hooper and his daughter Sarah, who was identified as the wife of Thomas Hooper, John Packard deeded a parcel of land in Bridgewater to them on 2 February 1737. The Hooper section of Mitchell's 1840 Early History of Bridgewater stated that Sarah Hooper was the daughter of Nathaniel, Samuel or John Packard, and the Packard section of the same source named Nathaniel as the father of the Sarah who married Thomas Hooper. From the deed transfer we can conclude that she was the daughter of John.4,1,5,2
Death*3 February 1780She died on 3 February 1780.1
