The Will of Sarah Allerton of Halesworth, Suffolk, the widow of Bartholomew, appears in the Probate Records of the Court of the Archdeacon of Suffolk. The will dated 13 Sep 1678 was proved 6 Nov 1679. She named her brother John Fairfax of Barking as executor and mentioned son Isaac Allerton; daughters Mary Auger and Dorothy Rousham; son John Allerton; and brothers Benjamin and Nathaniel Fairfax.[1]

She was the daughter, probably the eldest, of Benjamin Fairfax, preacher at Rumburgh in Suffolk and his wife, Sarah Galliard of Ashwell Thorpe in Norfolk.[2]
