Sarah Family HistoryThis name with variant spellings Sara, Sare, Sarra and Sarre, derives from the Hebrew female given name Sarah. In the Olde Testament Abraham's wife was first known as Sarai, "the quarrelsome", but by divine decree this was changed to Sarah, "the Princess". St. Sara is believed to have been the handmaid of the sisters Mary Magdalene and Martha whom Jesus visited in Bethany. Her supposed tomb is in Les Saintes Marie, Provence (Southern France). Sarra (without surname) is first recorded circa 1160 in Early Documents relating to the Danelaw, London. One, Benedictus filius (son of) Sarre appears in the 1169 "Pipe Rolls of Norfolk"...
