Hi Tileston Cousins!Just thought I'd pass along the only primary source I've ever found for the maiden name of Sarah, wife of Timothy Tileston (1636-1697) of Dorchester, MA:
From Dorchester Town Records, p. 171: "These prsents witnesseth that I Timothy Tilston of Dorchester doe bind my self heyers executors adminestrators vnto the Select men of dorchester and ther Successors from time to time to Secuer and saue harmles the Towne of Dorchester from [p. 172] all damage and Charges that may arise by meanes of James Bridgman my father in law his Inhabiting in Dorchester or any of his while he or they remaine in Dorchester as witnes my hand this fowerteenth day of Nouember 1670.Timothy Tilestone. [witnesses] William Sumner Thomas Devenport senior. 13 of January 1683: by order of the select men Timothy Tilstone is discharged of the aboue Written bond the party that he gaue bond for being Removed out of towne."
I've accumulated a large database on Tilestons from primary sources and would love to hear from other Tileston researchers.
