Immediate Family

About Sarah Ewer (Learned)

The Ewer family, including Sarah Learned Ewer, came to America in 1635 in the James and settled first in Charlestown. -------------------- Laurel Logan:


Thomas Lothrop and Sarah Learned

Sarah Learned (sometimes spelled "Larned") was born in England about 1608 to William and Goodith Learned. Her mother's maiden name may have been Gilman.

Sarah married Thomas Ewer, about 13 years her senior, in Bermondsey, Surrey, England on January 13, 1623/24. They had five children:

John Ewer

Sarah Ewer

Elizabeth Ewer, born about 1631

Thomas Ewer, born about 1633

Anna Ewer

In 1635, Sarah and Thomas along with two of their children -- Elizabeth and Thomas -- traveled to America on the ship "James" and settled in Charleston (Rhode Island?). It's unclear why the older children were not on this trip; Anna was perhaps not yet born.

Sarah's husband, Thomas Ewer, died in 1638.

Thomas Lothrop was born about 1612 in England (baptized in Eastwell), the first child of Reverend John and Hannah (Howse) Lothropp. Spelling variations on the surname "Lothrop" are common.

In 1632, Thomas' father was imprisoned for his religious practices which differed from those of the Church of England. The incarceration continued until 1634 when Thomas' mother died. John Lothropp was released to care for his family and immediately made plans to leave the country. Some sources indicate that the emigration was a condition of his release. In any event, the family sailed for America on the ship "Griffin" and arrived in Boston in September 1634. They settled in Scituate, Massachusetts and moved to Barnstable in 1639.

On December 11, 1639, Thomas Lothrop and Sarah (Learned) Ewer were married, either in Boston or Barnstable. Thomas was about four years younger than Sarah.

Thomas Lothrop is recorded as having been a land surveyor, the same occupation as Sarah's first husband. He eventually became a significant landholder in the area.

Thomas and Sarah Lothrop had five children, all baptized in Barnstable:

Mary Lothrop, born in 1640

Hannah Lothrop, born about 1642

Thomas Lothrop, born about 1644

Meletiah Lothrop, born about 1646

Bethia Lothrop, born about 1649

In 1701, Thomas testified that he was "about 80 years of age." Based on records of his baptism, he was closer to 90 at that time. He died in 1707 at about age 95. The date of Sarah's death is unknown.
