  • Notes 
    • He was a Massachusetts legislator, a Federalist, and a first captain in the Boston light infantry.

      His half-brothers were Revolutionary war hero Paul Dudley Sargent (1745–1828) and the Loyalist John Sargent (1750–1824). Through one of his full brothers, Winthrop Sargent (1727–1793), he was an uncle of Judith Sargent Murray (1751–1820), the poet and advocate for women's rights, and Winthrop Sargent (1753–1820), Governor of Mississippi Territory.

      He was a successful merchant in both fishing and foreign trade. In Boston his offices were at 25 Long Wharf, then 40 Long Wharf. He also owned Sargent's Wharf, which still bears his name.
