An American Family History

Sarah Fuller Crowell

Barnstable, Massachusetts was settled in 1639 when Parson Joseph Hull came to Cape Cod with and his congregation from Weymouth. A little later in the year, the Reverend John Lothrop brought his Congregationalists. They incorporated as the Town of Barnstable.

Sarah Fuller Crowell was born on December 10, 1654 in Barnstable, Massachusetts and was the daughter of  Samuel Fuller and Jane Lothrop.

According to Brainard, she may have married John Crowell, Senior of Yarmouth. 

In 1683 she inherited from her father “four pounds in Money and two Cowes" and “all my household stuffe to be equally Dvided" with her three sisters.

John died in 1714.
A Puritan was a member of the religious group in the 16th and 17th centuries that advocated "purity" of worship and doctrine who believed in personal and group piety. Puritans were persecuted in England and came to America so they would be free to practice their religion.
