From http://minerdescent.com/2010/06/25/theophilus-shatswell/

Susanna Bosworth was born about 1609 in Boston, Lincoln,  England.   Her parents were Joseph  BOSWORTH and Alice [__?__].   Some genealogies say that Hanniel was Susannah’s father and not her brother and he was born in 1589 in Boston, Lincolnshire, England instead of 1615.  These genealogies move his marriage to Abigail Scott up to  17 Mar 1614 in England instead of 17 Mar 1654.  They also change Abigail’s birth to 5 Mar 1591 in Rattlesden, Suffolk, England.   In both versions Hanniel died 25 Sep 1683 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass. and Abigail died 1684 in Ipswich, Essex County, Mass.  Susanna died in 1672.

In his will of 20 June 1663 Theophilus Shatswell of Haverhill named “my brother Wilyam Sargent & my kinsman Lieutenant Philip Challis” his overseers; Philip Watson-Challis had married Mary, the eldest child of William Sargent. Recent research has shown that no sibling of Theophilus Shatswell married [our ancestor] William SARGENT, and the two wives of William Sargent have been identified. The most likely remaining solution is that Theophilus Shatswell married a sister of William Sargent.  Perhaps Theophilus married William’s sister Susanna SARGENT in 1639 in Ipswich, Mass instead of Susanna Bosworth.

Susanna Sargent may have been born in 1618 in England and died in Oct 1672 in Ipswich, Mass., but I can find no mention of her in the Sargent records. ___________________ Source of Susannah's marriage to Theophilis Shatwell They had a daughter Hannah b. Aug. 5, 1661 who married Richard Messer of Haverhill on March 18, 1669. She died Dec. 17, 1670 in childbirth. He died 4 months later April 29, 1671 and left son Abiel an orphan. He went under the care of Robert Emerson and his wife in Haverhill. Jan 3, 1695 he married Abigail Marsh, daughter of Onesiphorus. She was born in Hingham, MA on Feb. 21, 1671. He located in Metheun on the West bank of Merrimack. He cleared land by the authority of the state of MA and established a ferry. He died Aug. 6. 1756 and Abigail died March 3, 1761.

Richard was the eldest of their 7 children.
