About Sarah Ann Dorsey (Wyatt)

Birth: 1657 Anne Arundel County Maryland, USA Death: 1690 Anne Arundel County Maryland, USA

Sarah Wyatt was born in 1657 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, to Nicholas Wyatt and his wife, Damaris Stockett. Her father was a wealthy planter; her parents were Quakers.

Sarah married Col. Edward Dorsey, Jr., ca 1670, in Anne Arundel County. He was an attorney and military officer; he held several offices of public importance. They had eight children: 1. Edward Dorsey, III 2. Sarah Dorsey 3. Hannah Dorsey 4. Samuel Dorsey 5. Capt. Joshua Dorsey 6. Col. John Dorsey 7. Nicholas Dorsey 8. Benjamin Dorsey

"Upon the death of Sarah's father, Nicholas Wyatt, in 1673, he left a will made in 1671, in which Sarah's mother Damaris was made executrix. Col. Edward Dorsey, as the representative of his wife, the heir, contended for the administration of the estate, on the ground of a subsequent revocation of the will in 1671. The case was decided in favor of Maj. Dorsey, who administered. After the death of Samuel Wyatt, the only son and heir of Nicholas Wyatt, Edward Dorsey claimed his estate by rights of his wife, as sole-heiress. A battled ensued with Thomas Bland, who had married Damaris, step-mother of Sarah Wyatt Dorsey. Edward Dorsey had Bland arrested and caused him to be kept a prisoner at the Public Ordinary for several days." –J.D. Warfield

Sarah Wyatt Dorsey died, ca 1690, about aged 33, in Anne Arundel County. She is assumed to be buried on the Dorsey Plantation in Annapolis, Maryland.
