> I have in my line John Pickard, who married Jane Crosby in 1644 in
Rowley.. I know nothing more about either of them and would be pleased
any information. I am descended from their daughter, Sarah, who married
Thomas Hammond in 1679. <
I missed your original message, but picked it up from Jenn's reply with the
Rowley gravestone inscriptions.
I descend from the same Sarah PICKARD and Thomas HAMMOND, through their
daughter Sarah, who married Thomas LAMBERT. Thomas and Sarah (HAMMOND)
LAMBERT's great-great-grandaughter Sarah Perley LAMBERT was my
great-great-grandmother. It appears that Jenn provided gravestone
engravings from a book by George Brainard Blodgette. He co-wrote, with
Amos Everett Jewett, the definitive compilation of Rowley families, "Early
Settlers of Rowley, Mass." in 1933. It has thorough information on the
PICKARD family, the CROSBY family, the HAMMOND family, and others. John
PICKARD's mother was the widow Ann Lumme, but her birth surname is unknown.
Jane CROSBY was a daughter of Robert CROSBY and Constance BRIGHAM. Jane
was born circa 1627 at Home-on-Spaulding Moor, Yorkshire. Her father died
between 1634-1636 and the widow Crosby brought to Rowley her three
daughters Jane, Mary, and Hannah. Jane married John PICKARD in Rowley on
29 October 1644. He died there in Sept. 1683 and she died there 22 Feb.
1715/16. They had two sons and six daughters, all of whom lived to
adulthood and married.
