About Anne Betts

In her will, dated 6 February 1673 and proved 21 November 1683 (the year dates underlined in the original), ANNE BETTS ordered that "my son SAMUELL shall have my whole estate, he paying to the rest of my children five shillings per child, & to my daughter MARY my wearing clothes"; the inventory totalled Ð25 9s. 6d., of which Ð13 10s. was real estate; in the margin the testator was identified as "Anne Cable" [ NHPR 2:111].

MARRIAGE: (1) By 1640 possibly Sarah _____ (in depositions relating to the witchcraft trial of Goody Knapp, Bethia Brundish, aged sixteen, deposed on 26 April 1654 about something she observed while in the company of Deborah Lockwood and Sarah Cable [ NHCR 2:83]; as Deborah Lockwood was at that time seventeen it might be thought that Sarah Cable herself was about the same age; this record is, then, the only known record for the first wife of John Cable or for an otherwise unknown daughter). (2) After 31 August 1658 [ TAG 12:101] ANN (_____) BETTS, widow of ROGER BETTS. (This identification is based on the probate records cited above. The date of Ann's will leaves two possibilities: either she was still the widow of ROGER BETTS on 6 February 1673, and did not marry Cable until after that date; or the date of her will is in error and should be "6 February 1683" [i.e., 1682/3], in which case she chose to revert to her previous married name in making a will in which she only named her BETTS children.)
