About meSarah Willoughby (1639-1673), the wife of Virginia landowner and militia Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Willoughby (1632-1672).

The daughter of Richard Thompson, Sarah married prominent planter Thomas Willoughby on 18 November 1652. Willoughby owned significant amounts of land in Lower Norfolk County, VA.

Sarah and Thomas Willoughby had three children, of which only one, Thomas, survived.

About my librarySarah Willoughby's library was inventoried on 26 February 1673/4, and valued at £5. Unlike her husband's inventory of 15 May 1672 (which simply lists "a pcell [parcel] of books"), Sarah's library is mostly itemized by title.
