Sarah Drury Pemberton
Stefan Bielinski

Sarah Drury probably was born during the 1730s. She probably was the older sister of Nicholas Drury.

In 1752, she married Albany-born skipper William Pemberton at the Albany Dutch church. By 1761, their five children had been baptized in St. Peter's Anglican church where both parents were members.

William Pemberton was a Tory who fled Albany during the latter stages of the Revolutionary War. We presume that Sarah Drury Pemberton accompanied him into exile!
