About Fitz William Sargent

The Sargent family of Gloucester, Massachusetts, was traditionally involved in seafaring and commerce. Judith Sargent Murray's father, Winthrop Sargent, and grandfather, Epes Sargent, were both successful ship owners and merchants. Fitz William Sargent, brother of Judith Sargent Murray, carried on this family tradition by becoming a successful sea captain and merchant involved in trading ventures in India, China, Russia, and the West Indies. The profits from Fitz William Sargent's enterprises ultimately enabled him to retire to a comfortable estate near Newton, Massachusetts, where he died in 1822.
