Sarah Mills mostly likely married first by 1668 George Garland and certainly married Joseph Winnock by 1676.

GDMNH: "Garland: 2 GEORGE, tenant at Nonesuch under Jordan, best kn. for his marital dime, with Sarah Mills and Wid. Hitchcock." Found first in Ct. 2 July 1662, for freq. Sarah Mills’s ho., when susp. of having a wife in Englnad both indicted for liv. together in Nov. 1665, again in Sept. 1668. Sept. 1668, when ord. to mar. within a mo. Sarah G., ‘a kn. vagabond Quaker coming from Black Point,’ ord. whipped from town to town, Boston to Scarb., Aug. 1668. She described as Window Mills with several grown chilren; GMB 3:340-1

It is possible that that George Garland didn't actually marry Sarah Mills despite the court order. But she certainly had several children with him before she married to Joseph Winnock. Geoge Garland had the same type of relationship next with Lucretia Williams and had a known son Jabaz Garland.
