Thomas SPARROW
Elizabeth MARSH
Elizabeth KINSEY
WARNING:  This page is "not right," no doubt because it's based entirely on secondary sources.  I'll see if I can dig up any primary records, but for the moment, I'm sick of working on it, so caveat emptor!  Sources making our subject into two men, one married to Elizabeth MARSH, the other their son married to Elizabeth KINSEY, do appear to be incorrect.
Husband:  Thomas SPARROW, Sr.
Birth:  1600 or 1615
Death:  1 Jan/Jun 1674/5, West River, Anne Arundel Co., MD
Marriage-1:  23 Aug 1645
Migration:  1649, England to Maryland
Divorce:  bef. 1 Feb 1669
Wife-1:  Elizabeth MARSH
Birth:  15 Apr 1634, St. Mary's in Somerset, London, MDX
Death:  1685, MD
Other Spouse:  m2. 1 Feb 1669, Patuxent, MD, Thomas TAYLOR (1643-1684)
Other Child:  Elizabeth TAYLOR (1669-1756)
Father:  Thomas MARSH
Mother:  Margaret HARFORD

I can't believe Elizabeth got married at the age of 11, so is the birthyear wrong, or is the marriage year wrong?

Marriage-2:
Wife-2:  Elizabeth "Eliza" KINSEY -- unmarried in 1667
Birth: 
Death:  1715/6 
Other spouse:  m2. 7 Jul 1676, Richard JOHNS
Father:  Hugh KINSEY
Mother:  Margaret COULTON

In 1667, Hugh KINSEY signed a will in which he referred to his daughter as "Eliza: Kinsey," so we know she still wasn't married at that point.

Children with Elizabeth MARSH born in MD:
1.  Charity SPARROW, b. ca. 1650; m. Richard TYDINGS (1638-1686)
2.  Elizabeth SPARROW, b. ca. 1667; m. 30 Jul 1689, Anne Arundel Co., MD, William COALE IV (1667-1715)
Child with Elizabeth KINSEY born in MD:
3.  Thomas SPARROW, Jr., b. 1681 by 1775/6

Thomas had to have been born no more than 9 months after the death of his father.
Thomas, at least, does appear to be Elizabeth KINSEY's child because he later inherits land patented by Hugh KINSEY, Elizabeth's father.

Sources:

1.  Mea culpa, I didn't completely record this source, but a researcher cites this deed, of Mary FRANCES, sole executor of the will of Thomas FRANCES, dated 20 Sep 1690:
In consideration that Thomas Sparrow had transported himself, Elizabeth his wife and his children and John Dennis, his servant into this province in 1649...
If Thomas transported his wife, Elizabeth, in 1649, this has to be his first wife, Elizabeth MARSH, because Elizabeth KINSEY was transported to the U.S. by her father in 1659 and was still unmarried as late as 1667.
