About Anna Judkin

From History of the Town of Gloucester, Cape Ann: Including the Town of Rockport  By John James Babson. Page 106:

THOMAS JUDKIN is mentioned as a landowner several times before 1650. In 1665, he bought of George Blake a house and land near the Meeting-house. He married, in 1665, Anna, widow of Nehemiah Howard of Salem. By the previous husband she had had three daughters, –

  1. Hannah, who married John Sargent;
  2. Rose, who married Joseph Allen; and
  3. Sarah, who married George Harvey.

He died Feb. 23, 1695, leaving an estate of £271: she died Jan. 27, 1706, aged about sixtyeight. It is probable that Judkin kept a tavern, and that the business was carried on by his wife after his decease; for, in November, 1695, a committee of Ipswich gentlemen met at her house to settle a difference between the town and Francis Norwood in relation to Thatch Banks, and expended there eighteen shillings. The selectmen also often met at “Landlady Judkin's;” and, in 1704 and 1705, contracted a debt of upwards of a pound in each year, which was paid by the town. The descendants of the landlady by her three daughters are numerous.
