About Jonathan Sargeant

[The following was downloaded 2010 from http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/n/i/l/Stephen-S-Niles/GENE15-0001.html] "'Jonathan Sargent' was one of those who about 1643, at New Haven, with Theophilus Eaton, took the 'oath of fidelity' to the government then and there established. We find him there, in court, in 1647, testifying concerning the bad quality of the leather of his shoes. 'The insoales and outsoales and all fell from the upper leather.' From the Branford records we learn that 'goodwife Sargent' died Dec. 17, 1651, and Jonathan Sargent, Dec. 9, 1652. Jonathan, Hannah, Thomas, and John, children of Jonathan Sargent, 'a member of ye church at Branford,' were baptized at New Haven, 10th 6th mo. 1651. Of these, Jonathan, being a young man, was among the first settlers of Newark, N. J. where John Sergeant, the missionary, his grandson, was born in 1710. The father of the missionary, who was also named Jonathan, died about 1732, leaving a widow, subsequently second wife of Col. John Cooper, and four sons, Thomas, John, Jonathan, and Daniel. The late Hon. John Sergeant, of Philadelphia, was the son of Jonathan Dickinson Sergeant, and grandson of Abigail the daughter of Rev. Jonathan Dickinson, she having married Jonathan Sergeant, the brother of the missionary. These facts, though gathered from documents fragmentary and in localities wide apart, may be relied on. S. H. C. (NEHGR, Vol. 10, p 232)"

He resided in Branford, CT in 1644.
