Sarah Ames1

Marriage*She married Thomas Hayward Esq., son of Thomas Hayward and Mehetible Waldo.1
Relationship Note*Sarah's family has not yet been determined. We wonder, though, if she may have been a relative, perhaps a sister, of brothers John Ames and William Ames. The Ames and Hayward men, and possibly their sisters and other family members, arrived in New England together on the same ship and there is evidence that the families interacted in both Duxbury and Bridgewater after arriving in America. Additionally, Elizabeth Hayward, the "probable sister" of Sarah's husband Thomas Hayward Esq. married John Ames, one of the Ames brothers who sailed from England with the Thomas Hayward family.
(Wife) Death15 August 1698Sarah became a widow when Thomas Hayward Esq. died on 15 August 1698.1,2
No Issue*Sarah and Thomas Hayward Esq. had no children, at least none that out lived their parents.1

William Ames1

d. 1654
Father*Richard Ames1
(Travel Mate) Immigration1635It is believed that Thomas Hayward, who came from Aylsford, Kent County, England, and John Ames both arrived in America in 1635 on the ship Hercules and settled first in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Both men were early proprietors in Bridgewater, also in Plymouth County. John's brother William Ames may also have arrived on the same ship. William settled in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts as early as 1640.2,3
Marriage*He married Hannah ______.1
Death1 November 1653He died on 1 November 1653 in Braintree just one month before his last child was born.4
Death*1654He died in 1654.1
(Brother-Possible) Relationship NoteSarah Ames's family has not yet been determined. We wonder, though, if she may have been a relative, perhaps a sister, of brothers John and John Ames and William Ames. The Ames and Hayward men, and possibly their sisters and other family members, arrived in New England together on the same ship and there is evidence that the families interacted in both Duxbury and Bridgewater after arriving in America. Additionally, Elizabeth Hayward, the "probable sister" of Sarah's husband Thomas Hayward Esq. married John Ames, one of the Ames brothers who sailed from England with the Thomas Hayward family.
(Father) Relationship NoteIn Bridgewater, John, the son of William Ames was known as John Jr., likely to distinguish him from his uncle John Ames who may also have become his guardian after William's death. John Jr. was his Uncle John's heir.
(Brother) EstateHis brother, John Ames, had no children, but he had a large estate which he gave by deeds to his nephew John, "son of his brother William of Braintree, and to the sons of his said nephew."1
