Research Notes

Sarah Stoughton is generally thought to have survived childhood in England and emigrated to Massachusetts Bay with her parents and younger siblings. However, in view of the history of the Stoughtons it is highly unlikely that she was this Sarah Hollander who apparently married John Denman in Long Island, New Netherlands and had a family there. Better parents are needed for Hollander-1. She should be detached from Thomas Stoughton and Margaret Barrett Stoughton, who are not her parents. -- Halsey Bullen

The Stoughton parents came in with a profile merge several years ago. John Denman's mother was a Stoughton, which may explain how that name got attached to his wife as this woman's parents' name.

The best source I've found to elucidate the basis for this profile is at

That source indicates that John Denman married, apparently in New England (one online tree says they married in Dorchester, Mass.), and his wife's name is unknown. It says that they had three children: John born 1643, married Mary Gano; Philip married and removed to Derby, Conn.; and William died unmarried on Long Island.

I think that's plenty of basis to remove her parents. She probably should be LNAB Unknown, but I'm not interested in doing more research at the moment.

PS - The 1913 book about the Denman family also indicates her as "name not on record":

If her maiden name was Hollander, why is she daughter of a Stoughton?

Where is the source for the identity of the wife of John Denman?

Hollander-54 and Hollander-1 appear to represent the same person because: they were in an unmerged match & the New Netherland Settlers Approval System ( now has them marked "Green" (NNS Category) and "Orange" (Merge Pending), indicating that the two are ready to be merged. Thanks!
