About Sarah Swann

Sarah Drummond, the wife of William Drummond, who was Bacon's leading adviser. She lived just west of the church tower at Jamestown. When others doubted, she picked up from the ground a small stick and broke it and said: "I fear the power of England no more than a broken straw". She was probably the daughter of Edward Prescott, who, in his will, left her a lot at Jamestown. After the execution of her husband, she complained to the British government in behalf of her five children.
