Categories: Mayflower Families. Biography

Sarah Snow was the third child and second daughter of Mayflower passenger Constance Hopkins and her husband Nicholas Snow (who emigrated to Plymouth in 1623 on the "Anne"). They had married before May 22, 1627 in Plymouth Colony, New England. Sarah was born in 1632, after Mary (1630) and before brothers Joseph, Stephen and John (Nicholas & Constance had a new baby about every two years at the time). She moved to Eastham (originally Nauset) across the Bay on Cape Cod when about 13 years old with the rest of her family; her father was Eastham Town Clerk for many years.

On February 25, 1655, she married William Walker in Eastham. He had immigrated from England as a young man and received a land grant in Hingham, on the other side of Plymouth Bay, in 1636. William had been one of the original settlers of Eastham alongside the Snow family in 1645. He worked with Nicholas Snow, being a surveyor of routes. In 1653 William was impressed to serve as seaman on a barque commanded by Richard Knowles, in anticipation of trouble with the Dutch. After this service, he was admitted as a freeman of Plymouth Colony on June 3, 1656. According to the Snow Genealogy, the family lived on the north bank of the Great Pond in Eastham, about 500 yards west of Sarah's parents, Nicholas and Constance Snow.[1]

Freeman's History of Cape Cod, says William Walker immigrated in 1635, when just 15 years old.[2] William was on the Plymouth Colony list of those able to bear arms in 1643 and he was admitted as a freeman in Eastham, June 3, 1656.[3] Between November 1655 and July 1668, William and Sarah had six children as follows:[4]

John Walker, b. 24 Nov 1655, d. 26 March 1676 William Walker, b. 12 Oct 1657, d. before 1659 William Walker, b. 2 Aug 1659, d. Jan 1743/44 Sarah Walker, b. 30 Jul 1662, d. date unknown Elizabeth Walker, b. 28 Sep 1664, d. date unknown Jabez Walker, b. 8 Jul 1668, d. date unknown There is some disagreement among genealogists about the timing of Sarah (Snow) Walker's death. Some genealogies say she died July 10, 1696 and the "Find-A-Grave" web site says it was March 8, 1697.[5]

However, Find-A-Grave researcher, Charles Barker says: "She and her son William were appointed as executors of William Sr.'s will on 25 Oct 1703."[6] Taking this into consideration, I have marked her death as "After October 25, 1703," in Eastham. William Walker died in October 1703 in Eastham, Massachusetts; his will was probated October 25, 1703 although written March 8, 1697.[7]
