Notes:

Sarah was raised by Richard Webb (1580-1656), probably after the death of her mother. Richard lived in Hartford for only a couple of years before moving to Norwalk.
Thomas and Sarah were married and lived in Hartford, CT. In town records, Thomas was a "chimney viewer" in 1667-1668 and a "townsman" in 1682-83. He received an " upper lot in the Long Meadow" in his father's will of 1677.
