Probably the daughter of the Rev. John Woodward (1671-1745) and Sarah Rosewell Woodward (1682-1720).  The Rev. John Woodward was a graduate of Harvard in 1693.  He was dismissed from the church in Norwich, CT and came to settle in East Haven.  The area around so-called “Four Corners” on the east side of the Quinnipiac River was so populated with Woodwards that it garnered the nickname, “Woodwardtown.”
