notes

her father's will, 18 Jul 1682, names her as daughter Lestor, to whom he gives 5s. and no more "because shee hath reseived her portion alredy as will appear by a reseipt given in her hand."12,2 Caulkins also mentions, without a date, the baptism of "Widow Lester from the church at Concord," by Rev. Simon Bradstreet Jr., who was New London's minister from 1670-1683.13

  •      "Widow Anna Willey, sometime wife to Andrew Lester, Sen., deceased," died in 1692.14

According to Savage, she died without children before her father Thomas (1667). Shattuck says she was the 2d wife of Thomas Fox, with issue through one son, Eliphalet, and descendants in New Hampshire. Both are incorrect. Eliphalet was Thomas Fox's son by his 1st wife Rebecca.15,16
