Research note: An new article on the ancestry of William Wentworth is being published. It is in three parts with the first part published in January 2019. This profile will be updated as the other parts of the article are released.
The American Genealogist, vol. 90 no. 3 (July 2018, but actually released January 2019). "The English Ancestry of William Wentworth of New Hampshire: Male line ancestry for five generations," by Terry Booth, Paul C. Reed and Nathaniel Taylor.
William was christened at Alford parish church in Lincolnshire on March 15th 1615/6
Note: This needs to be researched further. Wives need more investigation to see what children belong to which wife and which wife he was first married too. It's stated that Elizabeth Knight was the second wife and there is confusion as to who the first wife was.

In the Wentworth Volume 1 Genealogy Book written by John Wentworth of Chicago. I have in my possessions both volumes he wrote they have been passed down from Alanson Wentworth.It does state about his daughters Sarah who was married to Benjamin Bernard and also Elizabeth to Tozier. On pages 59, 60-61. Page 60 - April 30, 1706 Sarah Bernard in her 15th year, chose her Uncle Paul Wentworth of Dover NH for guardian. Also in Rowley records is proof that he could be no other than Paul.
If you need the copies of the pages I can do this.
Sarah Wentworth is attached as daughter of Elder William Wentworth, but I see no sources for this. All documentation I can find shows only one daughter, Elizabeth. I recommend detaching Sarah until a source showing her relationship is provided. Additionally, Sarah has a death date of 1706 in Iowa, which is historically highly improbable
Wentworth-856 and Wentworth-145 do not represent the same person because: No source info. First wife of William Wentworth dies after this marriage is indicated. Unless there was a divorce, this doesn't seem a match
