Gender Male
Christening[1][2] 24 Dec 1609 Chesham, Buckinghamshire, England
Immigration[5][6] 1635 New Englandon the ship 'Elizabeth and Ann'
Marriage bef Jun 1637 to Margaret Unknown
Marriage est 1639 to Rebecca Unknown
Marriage aft Jul 1664 to unknown
Death[3][4] bef 13 Apr 1693 Weymouth, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, USA

He was a freeman in Salem (implied by Savage[6]) or Weymouth (implied by Chamberlain[8]) in Nov 1637. He seems to have lived most of his adult life in Weymouth and Rehoboth, and apparently moved between these two places more than once[8][11].

In June 1637, Edward was punished for his "beastly" drunkenness[11].

In June 1637, Edward's first wife, Margaret, was charged with adultery[6][9][11]; she was found guilty in Sept 1637[11] and was ordered banished in March 1637/38 [9][11]. Edward clearly remarried, as his wife Rebecca hung herself in 1664[7]. I assume that Margaret was not the mother of his children born after 1638 (based on Zubrinsky's similar assumption[7]). In March 1638, Margaret was pregnant and still married to Edward[9]. Therefore, Ephraim (bp. May 1638), who was conceived after the adultery conviction and apparently raised by Edward[10], was her child.

    'William [Carpenter] married second ... MIRIAM SALE, ... daughter of Edward Sale(s) (also Saile/Sails/Seal[l]e/Sall [the last probably comparable to Abigall]; occasionally S[e]arle[s]) of Weymouth and Rehoboth.'

    'Edward Sale's first wife, Margaret ______, was in 1637 convicted of adultery with two men (MBCR 1:198, 202-3; GM 6:142-43, 145). In 1637/8 all three were sentenced to be whipped and banished, "never to return again, on pain of death" (MBCR 1:225; GM 6: 143). It is often assumed that Margaret was Miriam Sale's mother, but this has not been established and, in light of the above, is open to serious doubt. By 1664 Edward Sale's wife was Rebecca ______, who in that year hanged herself at Rehoboth (PCR 4:83; RVR 1:50; GM 6:143). Miriam had a sister, Rebecca, who was probably older than she (GM 6: 144). If this Rebecca was named after her mother, it is likely that Miriam was the latter's child also.'

    '6 June 1637: "Rob[e]rt Allen & Margaret Seale, being accused of adultery, confessed the fact; so the grand jury found the bill of indictment to be true" [MBCR 1:198].

    At the 6 June 1637 court John Hathaway was also accused of adultery with Margaret Seale, wife of Edward Seale, and on 19 September he also confessed and was found guilty [MBCR 1:198, 202]. On 30 March 1638 "Edward Seale of Marblehead [was bound in the amount of] twenty pounds for his wife's appearance when she shall be called for after her delivery" [WJ 2:427].'

    'At a session of the Quarter Court held in Boston June 6, 1637, "Edward Seale, for his beastly drunkennes, was censured to bee set in the bilboes till the end of the Court, & then to bee severely whiped." At this same court session Margaret, his wife, was indicted for adultery with two men. She was found guilty by the court September 19, 1637; and on March 12 1637/8, sentenced to be whipped and banished, not to return on pain of death.'

    As summarized by Carole Henson on RootsWeb: He was 'recorded as landowner in Weymouth 1642-1644, in Rehoboth 1644-1647, and Weymouth in 1652. No records from 1647 to 1652. Rehoboth again in 1663. Records in Weymouth in 1667, 1676, 1679, and 1693.'
