Includes Notes for Sarah Odding:

Sarah Odding was born in England, date and place unknown. She came to America with her mother and step-father, John Porter, in Winthrop's fleet in 1630. She is listed in Reb.

THE GREAT MIGRATION BEGINS

SARAH ODDING

In the list of admissions to Roxbury church, member #95 was "Sarah Odding. She was daughter-in-law to John Porter & came with her parents & was after married to Philip Sharman of this church" [ RChR 79]. COMMENTS: This admission was late in 1633, but her parents were much earlier in the list, and the family probably came to New England on one of the ships that arrived during the early summer. See JOHN PORTER and PHILIP SHERMAN. In 1998 Patricia Law Hatcher discovered that Sarah Odding was born by 1612, daughter of "William Oddyn" of Braintree, Essex [ TAG 73:176-80
