About Sarah Bollard

BOLLARD, ISAAC, Boston, m. 3 Jan. 1655, Sarah, (born 1635), d. of Thomas Jones of Dorchester. Of this name some natural distrust may be felt.

History of the Town of Dorchester, Massachusetts. (2017). Google Books. Retrieved 11 March 2017, from page 60

Thomas Jones was grantee of Dorchester land in 1635, and one of the first signers of the Church Covenant with Mr. Mather in 1636; Selectman the same year, and often for thirty years after; Deputy in 1638. He lived near the hill still called by his name, and died 1667, aged 75. Col. Stoughton's will calls him "my loving friend Thomas Jones." He was one of the Executors of Stoughton's will. He came to New England, according to Savage, in the Abigail Hackwell, from London, in June, 1635, with his wife Ellen, and children—

  • Isaac, aged 8 years;
  • Hester, 6 years; One of his daughters, probably Esther, married Richard Way.
  • Thomas, 3 years; Thomas died July 24, 1635, soon after their voyage began, and several weeks before it ended.
  • Sarah, about 3 months. Sarah married Isaac Bollard, January 3, 1651;

Mr. Jones was then 40 years of age, his wife 36.

Their children born in Dorchester were—

  • Hannah, born March 28, 1636, perhaps 1636-7;
  • Rebecca, February 9, 1641. Rebecca married James Green, November 9, 1661.

Mr. Jones was a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery. He died in November, 1675, the grave-stone says aged " about 75 years," but according to the age given when he embarked he must have been about 80.
