  • Notes 
    • From Wikipedia:

      Sargent was one of the largest landholders in Gloucester. He served as a colonel of militia before the Revolutionary War and was a justice of the general session court for more than thirty years.

      In 1744, he was Gloucester's representative in the General Court of Massachusetts.

      In 1760, two years before his death, he had his portrait painted by John Singleton Copley. It's now in the National Gallery in Washington, DC.
