Bucknam Family Genealogy Forum
Looking for credible source(s) to support widely repeated assertions that: 1) second wife of Wm. BUCKNAM (1602-1679) was Sarah KNOWER; and 2) that this Sarah KNOWER was born in 1622, the daughter of Thomas KNOWER of Eastcheap, London.
According to numerous credible sources, Thomas KNOWER age 33, later of Charlestown, MA, immigrated in 1635 aboard the ship Abigail with Sarah KNOWER age 7, and Noll/Noel KNOWER age 29 (gender and role unknown). But a 7-yr. old then could not have married BUCKNAM in 1640. I have found no Sarah KNOWER born ca. 1622 in the St. Clement, Eastcheap church records (LDS British film #845246 on family search), but I have found a Sarah KNOWER, daughter of Thomas, baptized there 28 Sept 1628, which would jive with the immigration record.
Can anyone clear this up? Thanks, Andy
