About Sarah Morrill (Clement)

Sarah (Clements) Mudgett (1626 - 1694), daughter of Robert Clements and Lydia Drummer of Haverhill, Massachusetts, was born in 1626 at Ansley, Warwickshire, England. She died at the age of 68 in August 1694 at Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. Sarah married (1) Abraham Morrill on 10 June 1645 at Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts; (2) Thomas Mudgett, Jr. (c.1640 - c.1701) on 6 October 1665, son of Thomas Mudgett, Sr. and Ann Worton. Thomas Mudgett was a shipwright and served as a soldier in King Philip's war in 1675.

Sarah Mudgett was admitted to the Salisbury church in 1687, and died in August 1694, although her estate wasn't administered until 31 January 1704. A couple of years after her second husband died, her son Isaac Morrill of Salisbury applied to be made her administrator and was bonded with Moses Morrill of Salisbury and John Pengry of Ipswich on 31 January 1703/4. He filed "An Inventory of ye estate of my Honerd Mother Sarah moriel Allis mudgett of Salisbury, Deceasd Intestant," but then discovered that all the property she had left was provided for in his father's will. He then addressed a letter to the Court, "To the Honble John Appleton Esq Judge of probate of Wills &e. I have taken a Letter of adm upon ye estate of my Mother Sarah Morell alias Mudgett Decd", stating that the property was his father's (Abraham Morrill) and asking that the matter be dismissed.

Discussion

"The intermarriages and step-relationships in this family are typical of the early times. Sarah Clements had nine children by her first husband, Abraham Morrill, and two by her second, Thomas Mudgett. Ann French had eight children by her first husband, Richard French, and three by Thomas Mudgett, making in all twenty-two children, who were step-brothers and sisters, and who ranged in January 1701, from Isaac Morrill, aged fifty-four, to John Mudgett, aged two weeks."
