  • Note: court 30 sh."
  • Note: W.C. Folger thought that Richard might have had a wife before Sarah, as
  • Note: the following quotation from his notes will show: "If the date of the
  • Note: marriage of Richard Gardner and Sarah Shattuck in 1652 as given by the
  • Note: late Lemuel Shattuck, Esq., be correct; then I am of the opinion that
  • Note: Richard must have had a former wife, as Richard Jr., was born oct. 23d,
  • Note: 1653, and if Joseph was born at a later period he would have been too
  • Note: young to have been married early in 1670. indeed the late B. Franklin
  • Note: Folger and other hight authorities have stated Joseph Gardner to have been
  • Note: the oldest son of Richard Gardner Sen'r." (W.C. Folger, in the Nantucket

  • Note: perform the trust of an administratrix, and to barre the court harmless
  • Note: according to law." (Died March 18, 1688-9).
  • Note:
  • Note: He and his wife were excommunicated from the church in Salem for
