About Ann Spooner

SOURCE: The Pilgrim Archives, Leiden, Holand

Elder William BREWSTER, aged about forty-two years, came before the aldermen at Leiden, Holland on 12 June 1609, as guardian of Ann PECK, native of Launde, when they granted to Thomas SIMKINSON, merchant of Hull (he probably was son of John and Mary (SMYTHE) SYMKINSON and half-brother of Elder William BREWSTER), Power of Attorney to receive seven pounds sterling that Ann had left with Rev. William WATKIN, pastor of Clarborough when she left England.

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. Themarriage certificate is also on file with the Pilgrim Archive. Thisimportant genealogical document confirms that John was widowed fromSuzanna Bennett, and that he was residing at the Douver House, a localhouse for bachelors in Leiden (the Douver House still exists today). Annwas born ca. 1598 in Scrooby, England, and had migrated to Amsterdam andthen to Leiden with the original Pilgrim contingent lead by her uncle andJohn Robinson, their minister.

In 1637, Ann and her two sons, Thomas and William, left Leiden on a ship for the new world. Although there is no hard evidence to support it, they probably traveled on the ship "Hector", which sailed from Holland to Massachusetts and then to Connecticut that year. Ann first settled in Salem, where William was apprenticed to John Holmes of New Plymouth.
