    Notes:

    Name:
    Zachariah Sawtell was born 26 July 1643 at Watertown, according to the record. The year, however, conflicts with the birthdate of his sister Hannah, and perhaps it was 1644 or 1645. Zachariah grew up in Watertown but in his adolescence went with his parents to Groton. He later had a ten-acre proprietor's right there. In April of 1668 he married ELIZABETH HARRIS (Malden, Mass., Vital Records; The Register, 10:239), daughter of John Harris of Boston (Middlesex Co., Deeds, 27:354) Wyman (op. cit.) and Bailey (op. cit.) both give the date of marriage as 13 Apr 1669; in addition, Wyman says she died 1677-8 of small pox. Zachariah married, secondly, ANNA PARKER, daughter of Joseph and Margaret Parker of Chelmsford, Mass. The marriage occurred before 13 July 1684, when Joseph Parker deeded land to Anna, wife of Zachariah Sawtell (Middlesex Co., Deeds, 26:459, 27:325). She was born 16 Nov 1663 at Chelmsford (Vital records) and was thus about 18 years younger than her husband.

    Zachariah Sawtell served in King Philip's War in 1675/6 when Groton was burned (Bodge, op.cit., p. 272). He returned after the peace and on 21 May 1688 was chosen one of five highway surveyors for Groton (Green, op.cit., p. 97), his last mention in town records. he died by 17 march 1691/2, when Anna was referred to as the widow Sawtell (The Register, 43:375), and his father's will of 1692 implies that he was dead. His estate, however, was not administered until 1701 when Josiah Parker of Cambridge and Thomas Walker of Charlestown were named administrators, the decedent being referred to as "late of Groton, blacksmith." Again, on 21 Nov 1716, Zachariah Sawtell Jr. and same Josiah Parker were named administrators (Middlesex County Probates, No.19967, 19975). Submitted on 13 Sep. 1716 was an inventory of three parcels of land, with total value of 25 pounds, 10 shillings. Anna was undoubtedly the "Widow Satle" who joined the Cambridge Church on 26 July 1702. On 26 April 1709, Anna Satle received from Josiah Parker land formerly belonging to John Sawtell, which his brothers and sisters had quitclaimed to parker on 21 oct. 1700 (Middlesex County Deeds, 15:575, 6). Anna Sawtell, widow, sold this property to John Knight on 4 June 1711, and by 1727 she was residing in Fairfield, Conn., with her daughter Margaret Wooster (Middlesex County Deeds, 27:715, 26:527).

    Zachariah married Elizabeth HARRIS 13 Apr 1669, Charlestown, Massachuetts. Elizabeth (daughter of John HARRIS and UNKNOWN) was born Abt 1649, Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts; died 1677/78. [Group Sheet]
