Some of the Descendants of

THOMAS BLANCHARD
of Charlestown, Massachuetts

Fourth Generation


THOMAS4 BLANCHARD (John3, Nathaniel2, Thomas1) was born at Weymouth, Massachusetts, about October, 1693 (based on age at death), a child of John Blanchard and his wife Abigail Phillips. Thomas Blanchard and SARAH VINSON published at Weymouth their intentions to marry on 3 May 1717 (VR Wey 2:36). They were married at Boston by Samuel Sewell on 16 October 1717 (His Wey 99).

The proprietor of this web page has not yet identified the parents of Sarah Vinson. History of Weymouth, Massachusetts (page 99) stated that she was probably the daughter of Capt. John and Sarah Vinson, born 9 January 1702. But elsewhere that same source indicated that Sarah Vinson (b. 1702) married Jacob Nash on 31 January 1721. Another Sarah was born to Capt John and Sarah on 12 July 1708? The elder John Vinson and Sarah had a daughter which that source said married 11 December 1705 (name of spouse not given). Samuel Vinson, according to his will, had a daughter Sarah. If anyone has any information on the identity of the Sarah Vinson who married Thomas Blanchard, please contact Charles Maxfield at chuckmaxfield@gmail.com
