Sale Family Genealogy Forum
This is an update in regard to the wife of Leonard Sale. I have recently been in touch with Mike Brookin, who is researching the Brooking/Rennolds family. There researchers have found out the Leonard Sale was married to Mary Rennolds, not Mary Lomax. She was the daughter of James Rennolds, Jr. and Sarah Brooking of Essex County, Virginia. Hence Leonard and Mary's sons name William Brooking Sale. Leonard and Mary are mentioned in the will of James Rennolds, jr., Essex County Will Book 9, page 89 and in the will of Sarah Rennolds, Essex County Will Book 12, page 596.
My research has also shown that Leonard was previously married to Sarah Thorp and they had one daughter, Elizabeth, who would marry John Samuel. Sarah apprently died either in childbirth or shortly after and Leonard married Mary Rennolds.
