From "Sargent Genealogy" by Aaron Sargent, 1895
"John Sargent (born in Charlestown) went to Barnstable with his father, and
was admitted to inhabit there between 1662 and 1666. He returned to Malden
about 1669, where he was a selectman six years.
In May, 1695, the town of Malden made a division of two thousand three hundred
acres of common lands. The distribution was by lot to all freeholders in
the town, in proportion to their ratable estates, - an average of about thirty
acres to each man. Among the names are John Sargent, Sr., and John Sargent,
Jr. It was votes by the town - showing confidence in his integrity and
fairness - "that John Sargent, sen'r, is the man to draw the lots."
His slate gravestone is in Bell Rock Cemetery (formerly the "Old Malden
Like is transatlantic great-grandfather, he heeded the Scripture injunction; and
all his fifteen children are named in his will of May 20, 1708.
It is a circumstance worthy of incidental mention, perhaps, that the first and
third wives of John Sargent (who was born in Massachusetts Bay Colony) were born
in Plymouth Colony; so that the mingled blood of the Pilgrim and the Puritan of
these two noted colonies (which afterwards became the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts) flows in the veins of all his descendants."
