Was she the daughter of William Palmer?

Sir William Palmer came to America with his son, William Palmer, Jr., in 1621 on the Fortune. Wife Frances came two years later on the Anne and Rebecca. Sarah Palmer, their daughter, stayed in England where she married Henry Rowley in 1623. She died before Henry and their three children came in 1630.

Plymouth Colony History; Stratton says his daughter Bridge or Sarah married Henry Rowley. Other information says her name was Ann.

Henry Rowley and Some of His Descendants, by Homer W. Brainard, The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. XXXVII (Jan. 1906), Page 58.

1. HENRY1 ROWLEY Was an early planter at Plymouth, Massachusetts.... It is probable that he was married when he came over, and that his three children were born before that time. It has been declared that his first wife was Sarah, daughter of William Palmer Senior, of Duxbury. The latter came over in the Fortune in 1621, and his wife Frances came in the Anne in 1623. In his will, dated 1637, William Palmer names "Moyses Rowley (son of Henry1), whom I love," and provides for his bringing up, but does not state what relation Moses was to himself.

From Rowley Registry - Henry Rowley, Planter of Plymouth, had at least two wives. It has been popularly recorded that his first wife was Sarah Palmer. Documentation that her name was Sarah has not been forthcoming, although it is almost certain that she was a daughter of William Palmer, Nayler of London and colonist of Plymouth[1]. It is not known precisely when she died. It has been alluded to that she succumbed to the same "infectious disease" that felled Thomas Blossom. -------------------- http://www.laddfamily.com/15990.htm
