Sarah Jane Hunt Kent

  • Birth 15 Aug 1816 Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Death 20 May 1884 Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Burial Byfield, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Memorial ID 49924171

Sarah was born Sarah Stickney HUNT, daughter of Henry Swan HUNT and Elizabeth Gardner JACKSON, the name STICKNEY being the maiden name of Henry's mother. By court order in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Essex County, dated 27 Mar 1833, Sarah was permitted to change her name to Sarah Jane STICKNEY (see List of Persons Whose Names Have Been Changed in Massachusetts, 1780-1892, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Boston, Massachusetts, pp. 68-70).

When Sarah married James G. KENT on 04 Jun 1837, she was known as Sarah Jane STICKNEY. The name change has caused many problems for certain researchers, who do not realize that Sarah HUNT and Sarah STICKNEY are the same person. To further confuse matters, the surname of Sarah's father on her death record appears (to some people) to be written "HART" instead of "HUNT".
