Remembering Elizabeth (Sparke) Munson

January 3, 2014

Elizabeth Sparke, my 10th great grandmother, was born ca. 1575 in Rattlesden, Suffolk, England, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Sparke. At the approximate age of 16, in 1591, she married John Munson (1571 – 1650) in Rattlesden. The couple had four known children: Elizabeth (1595 – 1635), Judith (1606 – 1638), Mary (1609 – 1648), and Thomas (1612 – 1685). Her son, Thomas, immigrated to the New World, and became Captain Thomas Munson of the New Haven Colony.

Elizabeth is thought to have died (or maybe was buried) on 3 January, 1634 having spent her entire life in Rattlesden.
