[Note: Children need research: Surviving son John. Can't determine if a the second son named John died, and there was a 3rd John, no birth record for John in 1677/8; no mention in Philip's will of children's ages etc. Can't find references confirming 2 or 3 sons named Philip. Other references indicate widow Mary transferred deeds about 1688, and may have information on William being 'oldest' surviving son, indicating son Philip was deceased. Can't find source for deed online, nor her estate. ]

Mary Sargent was born about 1636, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Perkins) Sargent. She deposed on March 12, 1704/5, as being about 68 years of age. (p. 1631-2) [1]

In the will of her father William, dated March 24, 1670/1, he made bequests of property and money to many of his children and grandchildren, including William, Elizabeth,Lydia, Mary, and Philip Watson Challis. He left a large part of the estate to his unmarried daughter Sarah, which would go to his other children, including Mary, should Sarah not leave heirs. [1] (p. 19-21)[2]

She married Philip Watson Challis about 1652, as their first child was born the following year. [1] Philip Watson Challis was born in England, the son of John and Elizabeth (Watson) Challis who were married in Sheering, Essex, England in 1612. Philip was named after his mother's brother Philip Watson. (p. 31)[3] (pp. 57-61)[4]

1662: Oct. 14: Philip and wife Mary convey upland in Salisbury to George Carr. (p. 85)[5] 1669: Oct. 6: Philip Challis conveyed 20 acres in Amesbury (formerly Salisbury) to George Carr. His wife Mary released her dower, Nov. 11, 1669. (p. 89) [6] 1674: The town claimed Philip had agreed to give a 50 acre lot to the town for the use of the ministry and sued him for the land. Philip won the trial by showing that the land had been granted him without any reservation or encumbrance. It appears he didn't object to providing the land, but did resent being 'driven to it' in court. [7] [8] 1673/4: March: Philip and wife Mary did grant to the town by deed, the land for the ministry only, with restrictions that this land would be for no other future purpose than for that of the ministry. [7] Philip Challis died before Sept. 21, 1680, when his estate was inventoried, and widow Mary was administrator. [4] [2] (p. 418-19) [9]
