Biography[1]

"Jonathan2 Sawtell (Richard1) was born 24 Aug. 1639 at Watertown. He was an original proprietor of Groton in 1661-2 with a five-acre grant and on 23 Nov. 1664 was chosen a fence viewer (Samuel A. Green, The Early Records of Groton, 1880, p. 11). On 3 July 1665 at Groton, he married Mary Tarbell, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Vital Records). She died after childbirth 25 April 1676 at Watertown (Vital Records). He was made freeman at Groton on 15 May 1672 (The Register 3:239). After destruction of Groton by the Indians, he fled with his neighbors back to Watertown. Two years later he returned to Groton and was chosen selectman 1688-90. He died there 6 Jul 1690. There is no evidence that he ever remarried."

"After Jonathan's death, his son Jonathan Jr. of Groton, ged 15, chose his "uncle" Abraham Holman to be his guardian (Bond, p. 932; Middlesex County Probate, No. 19962). The relationship of this "uncle" is unknown, but William and Winifred Holman of Boston, Mass., and Descendants, Mrs. John V. Johnson and Mrs. Stewart Allen, 1944, suggests that Abraham's wife was Susanna Tarbell sister of Jonathan Sawtell's wife. his four surviving daughters and their husbands deeded his Groton land on 8 Dec. 1698 to Jonas Prescott."
