About Anne Bennett


Richard Bennett, son of Thomas, is mentioned as "brother-in-law," in the will of Anthony Barham of Mulberry Island, 6th of Sept.,1641.

  • Implication: she was old enough to be married by June 1642
  • Further implication: she was Richard Bennett's FIRST wife and, probably, the mother of all his children.
  • It all gets crazy-confusing due to confusion with the Richard Bennett who WAS the governor, and due to the loss of Isle of Wight's records during the Civil War.
  • Take with a large helping of salt any direct reference into titled gentry.

Mentioned in grandmother's will, 1635-38.

Date of death 12-4-1709 on her grave
