2/21/2016 - Disconnected from parents, BOURNE. No proof. All sources are for Ann Bourne or Sarah Ann Bourne, wife of Nehemiah Smith. This profile is for the unrelated Sarah who married George Smith of New Haven Colony, and 2nd John Jackson of New Haven. Two different people and no relation. None of the 10 children born to George & Sarah were Richard or Judith. Not likely any relation.

Her death should be listed as after June 1684. In June 1684, she was called to court in New Haven being complained on for attempted murder of her 2nd husband (deceased 1683):

New Haven Court Records, Volume 1, page 148. Are these records online? I find Ancient Town Records Volume 1 & 2 but it is not there, that I can see.

I found this in two Genealogy Biographies: 1. Comstock & 2.Nathan Grier Park.

George Beaman/Beamon of Derby, son-in-law to John Jackson deceased, complained of Sarah Jackson widow on 24 Jun 1684 for attempting to murder her said husband. The fact was owned by her! but many testimonies were presented to prove her under some kind of distraction. Considering that she was at times crazy in her head, and subject to her age and sex to bodily infirmity, she was fined five pounds for her attempt.

This profile is often confused with Ann Bourne, wife of Nehemiah Smith (probably unrelated to George). Most of the sources are undocumented/unsourced trees. Parents unknown, birthdate unknown, birth location unknown.

Not Sarah Bourne or Sarah Ann Bourne or Ann Bourne.
