  • Notes 
    • Sherman Genealogy (citation details below) mistakenly calls her "Sarah Gardner."

      Her parents are widely said to have been Samuel Gardner and Elizabeth Brown, this Samuel said to have been a son of George Gardner who died in Salem in 1679, a son of Thomas Gardner, and George's first wife Hannah. Thomas Gardner did have a son named George, whose first wife was named Hannah, and they did have a son named Samuel. But the Samuel Gardner claimed as the father of Hannah Gardner is often given as Samuel Gardner "Jr." And the "Elizabeth Brown" who married a Samuel Gardner around 1683 was in fact Elizabeth Carr, daughter of Robert Carr and widow of James Brown.
