About Anne Wilbur or Wilbore (Smith)

Ann Smith, not Ann Bradford was the wife of Samuel Wildbore

According to the New England Historic and Genealogical Society in "American Ancestors", Volume 112, pp. 108/109 Ann Bradford is not the wife of Samuel Wilbore. It is Ann Smith. I will quote some:

"In 1923 I went to the city of York, England, and examined the original will of Thomas Bradford of Doncaster and found the following statement as to his daughter Ann: "To my daughter Ann Wildbore, the wife of Zacharias Wildbore"......(she did marry) according to the Boyd index at Thorne, Yorkshire, in 1607, Zacharias Wildbore.

In the year 1944, I employed Mr L. H. H. Whitehead, of Long Melford, co. Suffolk, to go to Sible Hedingham and examine the parish records. He found not only the marriage of Samuel Wilbore and Ann Smith, but also the baptisms of the five children, namely, Samuel, Junior, Jespheff or Joseph, Sidreake, Arthur, and William, these two last died at Sible Hedigham an the remainder corresponded to the children who came over with Samuel and Ann.

The author says Mr Savage in his "Genealogical Dictionary" jumped to conclusions while looking at a copy of Bradford's will that omitted the name of Ann's husband. The purpose of the copy was the search for Gov. Bradford's ancestry (not proof of his descendants). The author I quote, Benjamin Franklin Wilbour of Little Compton, RI, himself inspected the original will.
