Sarah was possibly born in Hatfield Broadoak, Essex, England about 1595. If that was the case, her father was Christopher Scott of Hatfield Broadoak. Sarah married Thomas Graves in England about 1615. The first record of her husband is in Hartford, Connecticut in 1645, but they probably came to America sooner than that. It has been claimed that they emigrated because of religous reasons. After they settled in Hartford, apparently another religous schism caused them to move to Hatfield, Hampshire, Massachusetts around 1660. In Hatfield, they lived with their son Isaac. Thomas died in Hatfield in 1662. Sarah died in Hatfield on December 17, 1666, and is buried in the Center Cemetery in Whatley, Franklin County.
