I'm sorry but I came up with a negative result . I've put in step by step what I checked to help in any future research . I would suggest that it would help to research her existence in Virginia! 

I followed the one source on the profile,

The tree gives no details on the marriage but suggests that William came from Durham.

I searched on Ancestry UK and got no results for a marriage between a William Blackstone and a Sarah Boylston in any record.

There were several trees with the marriage so I looked at them . Many had a  date and place for this marriage, 9th Nov. 1626 at All Saints Newcastle upon Tyne.  The only source I found was other ancestry trees.

I then looked to see if there was any good coverage of this parish,_Newcastle_upon_Tyne,_Northumberland_Genealogy#Parish_Records

 ( This is usually a very useful search as it lists all the other places other than family search that have records for each parish. For this pairsh though it suggests that no-one has the images of the registers or full transcriptons so to check fully you would have to visit the archives)

However, the IGI did index the registers 

 I used Hugh Archer's useful site which makes it easy to search just the one batch of indexes

I searched batch number  MOO4291 (marriages All Saints, Newcastle 1600-1812  for Blackstone

Here's the result

Name     John Blakstone   Spouse's Name    Suzan Chamber    

 Event Date     09 Nov 1626    Event Place  All Saints,Newcastle Upon Tyne,Northumberland,England


"England Marriages, 1538–1973 ," database, FamilySearch ( : 10 December 2014), John Blakstone and Suzan Chamber, 09 Nov 1626; citing All Saints,Newcastle Upon Tyne,Northumberland,England, reference ; FHL microfilm 95,005, 95,006, 95,007, 95,009

Right date according to all those trees, right grooms surname but everything else incorrect. (and it appears that this is actually  the marriage of John Blakiston the regicide, )

Edit went back to all those trees on Ancestry; some had the marriage taking place on the same date in Virginia, some had the marriage taking place in Virginia at anything from 1625-1698, no sources (and a couple had him marrying Susan Chambers first)  I note that the findagrave entry says his wife is unknown (also unknown birth location within England)

Ok Thank's  now what should I do with this information just take my line off and start over from my line I know for sure , I believe I connected my line around 1700's to these I will have to look and see what happened,  do you have a list of John and Suzan Chambers children this would be great if I could get that , Thanks for helping , I do know my Widowed  Judith Blackstone b. 1775 Was in South Carolina 1830 and 1840 I don't know her husband for sure so I believe I may have jumped on the wrong train, I'm looking for the set of Blackstone family that was in South Carolina probably 1776 during the War , so I connected wrong, Thanks Please if you find anything else please send it to me, have a great night

John Blakiston the regicide is

He was the father of Nehemiah Blakiston of Maryland.

Apparently his wife Susan was a widow and Chambers was her previous husband's name.

I got to look in to these names they are showing me they are 6th Cousins 12 times removed,  I got to find how my line is from these, Thank you im going to see if I can fugue it out, lol
The line it's showing goes back through the Spearmans to Thomas Batte.

Thomas Batte is a bona fide gateway and the English end is sound.

Question is, how does the Blackstone connection work?

I was wondering where the name Sarah Boylstone came from.  Probably from here
