Family line: Richard
Richard Sargent was born October 30, 1575 in Bath, Somerset, England. Some research suggests he is the son of Hugh Sargent and Margaret Gifford, but this relationship has not been proved. Some DNA evidence suggests this is an inconclusive claim.
Richard married Katherine Stevens November 22, 1602 in Bath, England. Richard and Katherine had 3 children of known record:
- Elizabeth Sargent
- William Sargent
- Joanne Sargent
Richard’s death date is reported to be March of 1675–although this would make him nearly 100 years old. As this seems unlikely, the death date is currently unknown.
