  • The name "Chauy Yarrington" is almost certainly a transcription error from the source below, and has been repeated elsewhere. The "Yarrington" family is well-documented in Suffolk County. Her first name is probably "Charity", shortened to "Charry", and probably misread by an editor. A more thorough search of online records has corroborated this.
