  • Notes 
    • William (1) Sargent was born in Bristol, England, the son of William and Mary (Epes). His father when a young man went from Exeter, England, to Barbados, and was educated there. He returned to England and there married Mary Epes.

      William Sargent the first of this particular family in America came to Gloucester in 1678, and had a grant of two acres of land in Eastern Point where he built a house. He was a mariner and owned a sloop.

      He was always called William Sargent 2d., to distinguish him from a William Sargent who settled at Gloucester in 1649.

      Mr. Sargent married Mary, daughter of Peter Duncan, June 21, 1678. Duncan's Point and Duncan street in Gloucester, derive their name from her father.

      The date of Mr. Sargent's death is not known, but it is certain that he died before June, 1707, perhaps at sea, as in the settlement of the estate no charges are made for sickness or funeral expenses.
