Treasure Chest Thursday — 1661/2 Birth of Hannah Lawrence (1661-after 1726) in Watertown, Massachusetts

 It’s Treasure Chest Thursday – an opportunity to look in my digital picture information to see what treasures I can discover for my household historical past and family tree musings.

The treasure immediately is the 1661 beginning entry for Hannah Lawrence within the Watertown, Massachusetts city very important file guide:

The beginning entry is the second from the highest of the web page:

The demise file transcription for Obadiah Sawtell is:

“Hannah Lawrence daughter of George & elizabeth Lawrence Borne 24 of March [1661]”

  The supply quotation for this file is:

Watertown Data, Comprising the First and Second E book of City Proceedings, with the Land Grants and Possessions. and so on. (Watertown, Mass. : Watertown Historic Society, 1894), Quantity 1, web page 24, Hannah Lawrence beginning entry, 24 March 1661/2.

That is an entry in a transcribed and alphabetized very important file guide for Watertown, Massachusetts, so it’s a Spinoff Supply with Major Data and Direct Proof of the beginning of Hannah Lawrence.  The unique file must be within the Watertown city information, however I couldn’t discover it on Ancestry.

Hannah Lawrence (1661-after 1726), daughter of George and Elizabeth (Crispe) Lawrence of Watertown, married Obadiah Sawtell (1648-1740), the son of Richard and Elizabeth (–?–) Sawtell in about 1680.  Obadiah and Hannah (Lawrence) Sawtell had 13 kids, all in all probability born in Watertown or Groton.

Obadiah and Hannah (Lawrence) Sawtell are my seventh great-grandparents, via their son Hezekiah Sawtell (1703-1779), who married Joanna Willson (1701-1786) in 1723 in Groton, Massachusetts.
