Leiden records contain an entry: 1 May 1624 Trifoza Trace, 27 years, wife of Steephen Trace resident in Laiden, to the same, also her daughter Sara Trace, 15 months old. (TAG 51:242) Sarah Tracey came with her mother to America on the "Jacob"

Sarah's will, dated 28 Nov 1702, names her eight daughters by their married names, as well as her sons John and James. Only abstracts are available online, so the context is unclear. However, at least two of her daughters were dead, according to vital records, by 1702, so the date cannot be used to assume any others were actually alive.


The will of Sarah partridge is found in Vol. 2, p. 131, (docket 15336) of Plymouth County Records and reads as follows:

"I give and bequeath unto my 8 daughters, Sarah Allien, Trephosa West, Elizabeth Allien, Ruth Thacher, Mary Scrif (?), Rebeckah Fisher, Lidia Bruister, Mercy Coburn, all my linen & woolenclothes" etc. "My will is that my money should be equally divided between my ten children." Son John to have "my great bible as a gift of his father." "Ye sheep at ye vineyard are my son James Allein's by bargain."

Son James appointed executor and son "Bruister" & son John Overseer.
