Sarah Boden was born circa 1791 at Hertford.1,2 She was the daughter of Thomas Boden. The city of Hertford dates back to at least 673, and was an important market town surrounded by agricultural land. From the late 16th century, it had access to the London corn markets via the Lea river.

Sarah and George Darby became the parents of Elizabeth Darby circa 1823. She was the last of George's 13 children to be born, and apparently the only one with his soon-to-be second wife Sarah.3

She married George Darby, son of Richard Darby and Anne Brett, at All Saints and Saint John on Thursday, 27 May 1824 at Hertford..1,4 All Saints church was built in the 15th century with a cruciform plan and a west tower. However, it burnt down in 1891.

She was recorded as living with her sister and her cousin. in the 1851 census at Port Hill, Bengeo, Hertford. She was recorded as being 60 years old. It isn't clear why Sarah isn't living with her husband George and their daughter Elizabeth.5 At this time her occupation was given as 'domestic occupations'.5

Sarah died on 10 April 1854 at Bengeo, Hertford, of 'Decay of Nature'.1,2

Sarah may have died on 11 April 1854 at Port Hill, in Bengeo, Hertford.6
