About Ann Ann Vinall

Ann Vinal holds the distinction of being the only female to be considered one of the founders of Scituate, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts.

Little is known about Ann's life before arriving in Scituate in 1636. She arrived in town as the widow of an unknown husband and the mother of three children born in England -- Martha, Stephen, and John.

Ann lived at Stockbridge Pond in Scituate and arrived in town as a Conihasset Partner, referring to a local, private land division partnership that functioned as a semi-autonomous government in town.

Ann died in 1664 in Scituate. She is remembered as being a pioneering woman in town.


"On the slopes of Third Cliff, overlooking the marshes of the North River, Nathaniel Tilden, one of the Men of Kent, established the first farmstead in 1626. Others also settled behind their cliffs, cleared their farms and established trade, not only with Plymouth and Boston but with England. Among these merchant adventurers was the widow Ann Vinal, after whom Ann Vinal Road is named. It is recorded that Ann was the best business man of them all for she brought over woolen yarns and notions to sell to the women, for she knew they were the spenders of money.
