About Sarah Hobbs

MacKay, Sue, suemackay@ontel.com., weymouth, 16 Feb 2003. -

"An illness far worse than sea sickness also struck the settlers - measles. Sixteen infants and young children died during the voyage, as well as three adults. The log for Thursday 3 February records the death of Sarah Hobbs, daughter of Philip and Charity, who was buried at sea just off the Canary Islands. The burial was obviously fairly routine for the crew, as the entry reads:

Set studding sail. Grand Canary 3 or 4 leagues. Killed a bullock weighing 625 lbs. Committed body of the deceased to the deep".
