||Sarah (Hollander) Denman was a New Netherland settler.|

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
Earlier versions of the profile said she was born in 1620 in "Southampton, Livingston, New York, USA" or about 1623 in South Hampton, Long Island, NY. It is not credible that an English girl was born that early on Long Island, and even less credible that she was born in Livingston County in western New York. I removed those "facts" from the text section and left England as her birthplace in the data fields. I also am removing Ancestry Family Trees. Online publication - Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com. https://www.ancestry.com/family-tree/tree/225892/family from the list of sources. Her unsourced profile in that Ancestry Tree apparently is where most of the profile errors came from. Smith-62120 20:42, 18 December 2022 (UTC)

If my memory serves me, the Long Island Historical Society had an index to the early land records of Newtown and I believe there is a clue there as to the identity of John DENMAN's wife. It has been many years since I went there.
Have you been able to get back to the Historical Society to check the records? If Sarah received land from her family, the land records could be a great clue.
The best source I've found to elucidate the basis for this profile is at https://archive.org/details/hendrickgenealog00hend/page/114
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": https://archive.org/details/denmanfamilyhis00harrgoog/page/n26
Where is the source for the identity of the wife of John Denman?
