Birth - Marriage - Death

ChildWilliam Saville was born on 24 February 1605, in Saffron Walden, Essex, England. Though no record of William's Baptism in Saffron Walden has been discovered, transcripts of the Parish Register of that village show the Baptisms of three Savell sisters, daughters of a William, were recorded. Ann (bapt. 1601), one of those sisters, also has her marriage to Samuel Bass(e) recorded there... Samuel Bass is referred to in William's will as his "brother Samuel Bass". This reference strongly implies that Ann and William were siblings.2
GroomHe married Hannah Tidd, daughter of John Tidd and Margaret Greenleaf, on 21 September 1641 in Woburn, Massachusetts Bay Colony, New England. The entry in Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700, which indicates that Hanna's maiden name of Tidd was not derived from a marriage record... and so the name may be inaccurate. Further, Torrey does not have a birth date for Hannah, nor any indication of her parentage.
Thirteen is a very young age for Hannah... William's wife Hannah may not be Hannah the daughter of John and Margaret (Greenleaf) Tidd as many sources indicate... John and Margaret's daughter Hannah is said to have married Thomas Fuller though still another source (Torrey) indicates that Thos Fuller married Elizabeth Tidd, not Hannah Tidd.3,4
Second MarriageCirca 1651, in Braintree, Norfolk Co., Massachusetts Bay Colony, New England, William Saville married second Sarah. Reg 37:167.5
Third MarriageOn 6 November 1655, in Braintree, Norfolk Co., Massachusetts Bay Colony, New England, William Saville married third Sarah Mullins. According to Torrey, this was William's third marriage and was a second marriage for Sarah, (she was the Widow Gannett); the children William (b.1652) and Sarah (b.1654) were apparently the off-spring of William and his second wife, also named Sarah, as it is known that Sarah Mullins left no children by any of her three husbands.6,7,5,8
DeceasedHe died on 6 August 1669 in Braintree, Norfolk Co., Massachusetts Bay Colony, New England, at the age of 64.9,10
