About John Colt Spooner

John Spooner was born ca. 1594 in Bucking(ham), England. His father was James Spooner of Colchester, England.

In 1609, John moved to Leiden, Holland, where he took up the trade of ribbonmaker. We know that he was actively employed in various capacities in the textile trades, as evidenced by a record at the Pilgrim Archive in Leiden, that reads as follows:

20-2-1627 Statement of Facts

Parties: John Spooner, ca. 40, merchant, Leyden;

Statement made at the request of Thomas Barret, merchant in Norwich, about payment arrears. In 1625

John Spooner was Barret's agent and in that capacity he has sold a large shipment of English hose to Peter Passavant, merchant in Amsterdam, for an amount of one hundred and forty-eight guilders and fourteen stivers.

Witnesses: Heynderick van Noorduyn, shoemaker, Cornelis Oegstgeest, clerk.

John probably knew Jonathan Brewster (son of William Brewster) quite well, as they shared the same trade and were often partners on various transactions.

John and Susanna Bennett were married when they were 15 years old.

On December 24, 1616, "John Spooner, widower of Suzanna Bennet, ribbonmaker, England. dwelling in the house of Douver" married "Ann Peck, spinster, England", daughter of Robert Peck and Prudence Brewster, William's sister. Witnesses were Samuel Lee and Elisabeth Spalding. The marriage certificate is also on file with the Pilgrim Archive. This important genealogical document confirms that John was widowed from Suzanna Bennett, and that he was residing at the Douver House, a local house for bachelors in Leiden (the Douver House still exists today). Ann was born ca. 1598 in Scrooby, England, and had migrated to Amsterdam and then to Leiden with the original Pilgrim contingent lead by her uncle and John Robinson, their minister.

John died in Leiden, Holland on July 6, 1628. His death certificate is on file in the Archive, though it is not available on their website, as it has not yet been translated.

In 1637, Ann and her two sons, Thomas and William, left Leiden on a ship for the new world. Ann first settled in Salem, where William was apprenticed to John Holmes of New Plymouth.

Ann died about 1650 in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
