- 'An American Family History
- Sarah Bonham Fitz Randolph was born on February 16, 1664/65 in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts. Her parents were Nicholas Bonham and Hannah Fuller.
- She married John Fitz Randolph on October 1, 1681 in Piscataway. John was born on October 7, 1653 in West Barnstable. He was the son of Edward Fitz Randolph and Elizabeth Blossom. The Bonham and Fitz Randolph families were close neighbors in Barnstable and John was an early member of the First Baptist Church of Piscataway.
- John was a large landowner and in 1707 was one of the original members of the Seventh Day Baptist Church.

- This name is not of Norman-French origin, as might be inferred from the prefix, Fitz, meaning son of, but rather, is of Anglo-Saxon derivation. Under the form Randulf it is found, as an undertenent, in the Domesday Book. I do not find it in the Battle Abbey lists.
- Attempts have been made to connect the American line with the Lords of Middleham and the Dukes of Westmorland (FitzRandolph Traditions) and to find the origin of the line in a certain "Count Herald FitzRandolph, who is mentioned in the Domesday Book as among the nobles who accompanied William the Conqueror from Normandy to England." These may well be the facts, but I have not been able to find the slightest ground for their assertion. At any rate the name is an ancient and honorable one, both in England and America.
- EDWARD FITZRANDOLPH (1), born about 1615, came to New England about 1630, with his mother, a widow. There appears no other information concerning him until May 10, 1637, when, at Scituate, he was married, by the Reverend John Lothrop, to Elizabeth Blossom, joining the church four days later, a step that Elizabeth did not take until 1643. Elizabeth Blossom was a daughter of Deacon Thomas Blossom, from Schooby, England, and was born at Leyden about 1620. Edward removed from Scituate to Barnstable, and then, after many years, to Piscataway, New Jersey, in 1675, dying the following year. His widow subsequently became the second wife of Captain John Pike, of Woodbridge, and died, 1712, in her 93rd year. To Edward and Elizabeth FitzRandolph were born eleven children: Nathaniel (2); Hannah (3); Mary (4); John (5); Joseph (6); Elizabeth (7), who married Andrew Wooden; Thomas (8); Hope (9); and, Benjamin (10). There were two other children, who died in infancy. Some of the married daughters did not come to New Jersey.
- JOHN FITZRANDOLPH (5), son of Edward (1), died in 1727. He had married, Octy. 1681, Sarah Bonham. Their children were: 'Sarah (19)'; Elizabeth (20); Temperance (21); John (22); and, Edward (23).
