About Mary Sargent (Epes)

William Sergent 2d, also of Gloucester, "mariner," appeared in Gloucester in 1678; m. Mary Duncan; descendants given in Babson's Gloucester, pp. 150-7. It is stated that he was the son of Wm. and Mary (Epes) Sargent of Exeter, Eng., Barbadoes and Bristol, Eng., Where Wm. 2d was born.

  • "(I) William Sargent, founder of the particular branch of the family treated in this place, was born in Exeter, England, 1610, and is said to have gone with his father to the Barbadoes when he was quite young, and was reared there. He returned to England and there, contrary to parental injunction, married Mary Epes, "who stole away from her home in the habit of a milkmaid to become his wife." They left England and went to Bridgeton, Barbadoes, where their son William was educated. Such is the tradition, not vague, but sufficiently grounded to be accepted as truth. Of the family life and antecedents of the elder William Sargent little is known except as is disclosed in the story here given, and well directed efforts to connect him with others of the same surname in England have thus far been unsuccessful." (Cutter, page 1206)
