    • Below is an extract from the book 'Honest Harry' Page 10, which is referring to Sarah's Father John Firebrace who died in Aldgate in 1650 and his son John Firebrace who went to sea as a purser.
      John Firebrace Vintner of St. Botolph without Aldgate, died in 1650. His son John went to sea as a purser in the 'Merchant Adventure 'of which his brother-in-law, Jonathan Atherton was commander, trading to the West Indies. He settled in Barbados, where his descendants prospered as merchants and planters. [1]
