She was born May 28, 1650, and survived her husband, marrying John Austin (as his second wife) Jany. 24, 1684.

He was both cordwainer and farmer, accumulating a good deal of land, having purchased from Simon Tuttle in 1677 a part of the land which was originally owned by John Punderson ; and receiving from his father, John Brockett, Sept. 2y, 1680, in deed "to my well beloved son Benjamin," a tract of land in New Haven.

The exact date of his death is not known. In Savages Gen. Dictionary it is given as 1679, Dut as conveyances of real estate to him were recorded in the closing months of the year 1680 it probably did not occur until in 1681.
