Her first confirmed sighting is on 6th November 1788, when she married a labourer named Francis Forsey at Winsham in Somerset. Sarah and Francis appear to have had five children baptised at Winsham between 1793 and 1815. Their first three children were all baptised at the parish church, whilst the younger two were baptised at the independent chapel.
Sarah died in 1821, being buried at Winsham on 1st July. Her youngest child was less than six years old at the time. Francis outlived Sarah by some years, and remarried two years after her death.
