The Ancient Sears Cemetery, West Brewster, Barnstable County, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The 124 headstones and footstones in the Ancient Sears Cemetery, W Brewster, Barnstable Co, MA are facing west. The older stones start at the NW corner of the 30 x 55 yd plot and the newest are in the SE corner. All 124 people are directly related to one another. The burying ground is entered through an iron gate held by granite posts which are labeled 1881 on the left and 1721 on the right. There is a granite and iron rail fence that was erected in 1881. The quiet knoll on which it is situated overlooks an unnamed pond which, is evidently the headwaters of Quivett Creek. Katherine Sears left money in her will to the town of Brewster for maintenance. Some stones are missing and other stones are unmarked. Could Richard the Pilgrim be buried under the big boulder on the west side? (Work of L. Ray Sears, III c1992 online at and

RICHARD, said to have been son of John Bourchier Sayer and Marie L. Egmond, born about 1590, appeared in Plymouth 1630, and m., 1632, Dorothy Thatcher, as is perhaps erroneously stated in the genealogy prepared by Edward H. Sears. He moved to Yarmouth, and his children were Knyvet, 1635; Paul, 1637; Silas, 1639; and Deborah, m. Zechariah Paddock.

On 2 October 1650, with a large number of other men, Richard Searesbrought an action against William Nickerson for slander [7:50].

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: Various publications of the middle of the nineteenth century set forth an English pedigree for Richard Sears, and partly on the basis of this pedigree assigned to Richard Sears a son Knyvett Sears. In 1886 Samuel Pearce May carefully examined and analyzed this pedigree, and found it to have no merit; he further demonstrated that the proposed son Knyvett did not exist [40:261-68]. Four years later May published a genealogy of the family [The Descendants of Richard Sares (Sears) of Yarmouth, Mass., 1638-1888 (Albany 1890)]. In 1948 Donald Lines Jacobus prepared a brief account of the family of Richard Sears [257-58].
