Sarah Tucker was the daughter of John and Rose Tucker. It is speculated that Rose was Rosamund Sturman, but I don't believe anyone has actually come up with proof for that. John Tucker died May 1671 in Westmoreland County, leaving the following will:

Dated 5 May 1671, proved 31 May 1671. To my two daughters, Sarah and Rose Tucker, when they are 17 years old; to the child my wife now goes with; my eldest son; my wife Rose to be exx.

There is a small area of Westmoreland County named Tucker Hill after John Tucker. Rose had 4 children by John Tucker: John, Sarah, Rose (who married Ebenezer Blackistone), and Gerrard. As you can tell by John Tucker's will, Gerrard was not yet born when he died. Rose remarried to Dr. Thomas Gerrard, a close family friend, soon after John's death (that is who Gerrard is named after - she was probably still pregnant with Gerrard when they married). Dr. Thomas Gerrard died around Sept 1673, leaving the following will:

Made 1 Feb 1672, probated 19 Sep 1673. To be buried by deceased wife Susanna; son John and loving and deare wife Rose, estate in Virginia, Maryland, and England. Daughter Mary, land in Mrs. White's Neck; to son-in-law, Blaxtones, adaj: Mr. Cole, Mr. Salles. Son Justinian. Grandson Gerrard Peyton. One mare to Gerrard Tucker; my sons-in-law and daughters-in-law; my 3 sons and 2 daughters; my eldest son Justinian my land in England. Witness: John Waugh, Isaac Allerton, J. Lee, John Cooper.

Rose then married Capt. John Newton, often called "Marriner". They had a son, Thomas Newton. John Newton died around July 1697, leaving the following will:

Dated 19 Aug 1695, proved 28 July 1697. To eldest son John my lands at Carlton and Camilsforth, in Yorkshire in England, and the house in Hull, which was my father's, also the land bought of Joseph Laycock; to said son John and his four children I leave 1,000 pounds of tobacco each; to son Joseph and his three sons 1,000 pounds of tobacco each; to son Benjamin and his daughter 1,000 pounds of tobacco each; son Gerrard and wife Rebecca live at ye Little Falls and have 1,000 acres in the freshes of Rappahannock with a mill and four negroes; to daughter Elizabeth Newton one-half of a tract of 2,150 acres and one negro; to my wife all my plate for life and then to my daughter; to son Thomas 350 acres and a mill at Totoskey; to wife Rose Newton 5,000 pounds of tobacco each year for life and various other bequests; to son Thomas four negroes; to grandson John the son of Joseph Newton, 200 acres of land. My three English sons one negro if they are living at my death.

Rose died around Feb 1712, leaving the following will:

Made 1 Dec 1711; probated 4 Feb 1712. To son Thomas Newton, land in Virginia and Maryland my late husband Thomas Gerrard left me.

The Lee that married William Fitzhugh(2) was Anna Lee. She was born in 1682 and had at least the following children by him (according to her will): Henry, Sarah, and Lettice. After William Fitzhugh(2) died, she married Capt. Daniel McCarty. Anna died around May 1732 and left the following will:

Made 7 Nov. 1728; proved 31 May 1732
To each of my own brothers and their wives a ring; a ring to Col. John Taylor; son Henry Fitzhugh all my lands, my first wedding ring and my grandfather Corbin's mourning ring; to Elizabeth daughter of Major John Fitzhugh a gold ring; to daughter Lettice 2 negroes; daughter Sarah Fitzhugh 2 negroes; Billington McCarty my last wedding ring; to Thaddeus McCarty a stone ring; to Sarah Beale my hoop ring. I discharge my brothers Henry Fitzhugh and Thomas and Henry Lee from the bills of exchange to my late husband McCarty. Negroes in the hands of the husband of my daughter Lettice to be hers.

If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
