About Sarah Meador

aka Sallie

Regarding the Sarah Hoskins who was the daughter of Bartholomew Hoskins and Mira Dorc(a/u)s Isham and who married Thomas Meador and Henry Awbrey:

Great sources about Sarah Hoskins are rare; usually the primary sources that refer to her reference her will and husbands, Thomas Meador and Henry Awbrey. There may well be a Sarah Hoskins who was married to Benjamin Eaton, but she seems to have been a different individual. The Thomas Meador/Henry Awbrey-marrying Sarah is referenced in several places. These also usually note her parents as Bartholomew Hoskins and Mira Dorcas Isham. Some say she was born and died in Massachusetts, others in Virginia.

Recorded July 12, 1662 Deed Bk 1656-1664, p 187-188


   ID: I0930
   Married: ABT 1658 in Virginia
   Note:
   No proof can be found that Sarah remarried. It should be noted, however, that a very prominent, highly influential and prosperous settler of the same area, Henry Awbrey, about this time took a wife named Sarah, who is assumed to have been our Sarah Meador, widow. Henry Awbrey is rumored to have a first marriage in England, but not trace of such wife or surviving children of such a marriage has been found in Virginia records. For purposes of this family tree, we are assuming that our Sarah did marry Henry Awbrey.
   Sarah is first mentioned as his wife in 1664 when Henry appointed her as his attorney to collect debts owed to him in his absence. She again appears in 1670 as party to a sale by Henry Awbrey and herself of a tract of 300 acres of land on the north side of the Rappahannock River.
   Sarah and Henry possibly had a son, Richard Awbrey. In a deed in 1675, Henry gave his son Richard a year old mare called "Bonny"..."until Richard be 14 years of age." Thus, Richard would have been born after 1661-1662, when Henry and Sarah were apparently married.
