Sarah ______1,2,3

d. before 6 March 1709
Marriage*circa 1670She married John Leonard, son of Solomon Leonard and Sarah Chandler, circa 1670.2,4,5,1,3
Relationship Note*Sarah's maiden name has not been identified, however we do know that she was not a daughter of Roger Chandler as claimed in the Leonard Memorial source. Sarah's husband John Leonard was a son of that Sarah Chandler and Solomon Leonard, and a grandson of Roger Chandler, so it was John's mother, and not his wife, who was Roger's daughter.6,3
(Wife) Deathbefore 21 November 1699Sarah became a widow when John Leonard died before 21 November 1699, the date of the inventory of his estate.7,8
Probate*23 January 1699/0The estate of Sarah's husband John Leonard, late of Bridgewater, was officially opened for probate in Plymouth County on 23 January 1699/0. Sarah and their son Joseph Leonard were appointed administrators of his estate.6
Estate*30 August 1701 According to the Chilton Mayflower source, in the division of her husband's estate, Sarah was to receive her thirds and son John, the eldest son's share. Other shares were allocated to sons Joseph, Enoch, Moses and Josiah and to their daughter Sarah when she reached the age of 18. On 30 August 1701 the widow Sarah and her sons John, Joseph and Josiah signed receipts. Unfortunately, the digitized version of his probate file contained no documents outlining the division of his estate or any receipts.6,9
Marriage28 July 1708She married second widower Thomas Washburn, son of John Washburn and Elizabeth Mitchell, on 28 July 1708 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).10,11,12,13,14
Death*before 6 March 1709She died before 6 March 1709 when her son John sold the family homestead to his brother Moses. John had received the property from his father's estate, although it was to be held with his mother during her lifetime.6,15
