Sargents of Nova Scotia

Postby dicksonhawaii » Mon Aug 05, 2013 1:33 am

Hi All, I'm looking for information on the SARGENT ancestry. The Sargents lived for some time in Nova Scotia I believe in the Middle Musquodoboit area. I have traced the Sargents, relatives of my wife, From Nathen b 1873, to Wallace b 1847, to James born 1826. James was married to Sarah Ellen Taylor b 1829. James may have come over from Scotland/England and, I believe his father was a Thomas. Any information would be appreciated, as I'm at a dead end right now. Thanks, Richard

Hello Richard,
Have you found James in any census records? If so, what birth place did he give?
All the best,
Sarah

Another excellent site:

Quite a number of "Sergents" and "Sargents" appear under Halifax County.

Hi All, Wow, I've got some research to do! Thanks to you all for the information. I have James Sargent with 5 source citations being born in Musquodoboit, Nova Scotia, but so far no luck in getting it verified and, again, he may have been born in England. I have him marrying Sarah Ellen Taylor from the "Taylor Settlement" in 1850, this in Nova Scotia. I will go to work on all the info you folks have sent, again thank you so much!-Richard

Hi All, Again, I'm needing some help as the data resources do not cover what I'm looking for. I need to find out some information on Thomas Sargent who apparently died in 1860. He married Nancy Ann Taylor and she died in 1877 from what I have found. Any one with ancestors of Thomas or Nancy Ann or are there resources that go into the 1700's I could use? I believe he lived in Nova Scotia as his son James was married there possibly in Middle Musquodoboit, Nova Scotia. Any help would sure be appreciated-Richard

Hello Richard,

There are some inscriptions here from Holy Trinity Anglican Church cemetery, with an 1855 death date for Nancy.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.anc ... rinity.htm

SARGENT, Thomas d Mar 8, 1860 75 yrs (Surname with a 'G')
SARJENT, Nancy d Aug 23, 1855 71 yrs (Surname with a 'J') - wife of Thomas
SARJENT, Elizabeth d Apr 15, 1856 28 yrs
? Charles ? (damaged)
? ? ? 31 yrs (damaged)
SERG, Ann ? (damaged)
SERJENT, Benjamin d Jan 21, 1852 33 yrs
SERGENT, Benjamin d Sep 19, 1861 7 yrs - son of James & Sarah

If that’s them, and they were of Anglican religion, the odds are they were English.

All the best,
Alan

Many thanks Alan! I will look into what you have found and see If it matches up. The dates for Thomas and Nancy look promising, but they should have a James as a son. Perhaps he is one of the blank or hard to read entries. But thanks again for the tip!-Richard
