I just read your posting which is quite old, so you may not get this. I am a descendant of John Hamblin and Sarah Bearse. John was not an indian. I can trace the Hamblin family back to England. I don't know if Sarah's mother Mary was the Indian Princess or not, but it is a great story. There is circumstantial evidence that indicates Mary may have been an indian, since there is no record of her birth or marriage in the extensive church records of the time. A marrige to an indian would not have been recognized by the English church at that time.
