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 burial-ground")
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."
