Thanks again.........By my records from an internet site I have my William Sterling marrying an Elizabeth (unkn.) in 'The Sterling Genealogy. I then found a reference in someone else's work of Willaim marrying: 'Elizabeth (Sawtelle) Short abt. 1659 - Essex, MA' It lists her parents as Richard Sawtell and Elizabeth POPE. I, too, find more references to the name POPLE - !?
Here is the information I have as to children/siblings which I didn't see on your webpage and can't confirm since I only have a hard copy of the information and don't recall where I got it from the internet:
1. John (alias Dolman) Sawtelle b. abt 1525/35 Drayton, Somerset, England - parents unkn.d. May 20 1591 Aller, Somerset.M. about 1560: Agnes _________ , b. abt 1535d. after May 20, 1591. Children (all born in Aller) include: 1. Joan Sawtell b abt. 1560 2. Lucy Sawtell b. abt. 1562 3. William Sawtell b. abt 1565 4. John Sawtell b. 1570-75 d 20 Dec. 1622
2. John Sawtell (jr.)born 1570-75 Aller, Somerset, Eng. (hae also seen it as Somersetshire!?)d. 20 Dec. 1622 Aller.M. 9 Oct. 1599 in Aller, Agnes Pittard b. Jan. 1579 (parents unkn.) d. 21 Dec 1622 in Aller. Children: all born in Aller, Somerset - 1. John Sawtell b. abt. 1600 2. Dorothy Sawtell b. 1602 3. Robert b. 1604 d. 5 Nov. 1605 4. Henry Sawtell . 1606 d. 16 Jul. 1606 5. Elizabeth Sawtell b. 1606 d. 16 Jul 1609 6. RICHARD Sawtell b. abt. 1611 d. 2 Aug. 1694 Groton, MA 7. Ann Sawtell b. abt. 1613 d. 15 Nov. 1656 Muddy River, MA 8. Thomas Sawtell b. abt 1615 d. 1651 Boston, MA 9. Elizabeth Sawtell b. 1621
Hope this adds something to the information you have. I also had that Richard (1611) was a Puritan who settled in Watertown in 1636 and was their first town clerk........
Also by other records I have Elizabeth, William Sterlings wife, as having died in Haverhill, MA and being the mother of 12 children. By thisparticular record they didn't know her maiden name but the date of death coincides with what we seem to have for Elizabeth Sawtelle (Feb. 6, 1675).
