"Some claim that Sarah Denton was the mother of the Thorne children, but this has been disproved by many genealogists. The only proof was a son named Denton. However, there are many documents claiming Susannah Booth as the mother of all the children. This includes some of the children naming their children after her. No real proof gives evidence to Thorne having married Denton at all."

1.    Sarah Denton, born 1623-4, married about 1639 to William Thorne b 1617 (Mr. Combes states that William Thorne or Hempstead and Flushing, L.I. did not have a wife named Sarah, but there was a William Theme with wire Sarah at Roxbury, Mass, and perhaps this is the man whom Mr. Eardely meant.) Sarah Thorne's tenth child was named Denton Thorne.


Is the parentage below correct? Was she a child of Rev. Richard Denton
