About Fear Jennings

Fear Robinson, born at Leiden, Holland in circa 1616. She m. Sept. 8, 1648 at Leiden, John Jennings, Jr., son of John Jennings, Sr. and Rose Lisle. They had three known daughters: Bregetta (q.v., Bregta, Brechie, Bridget), Miriam and Rose.

John Jennings, Jr. was buried at Leiden Dec. 7, 1664. Fear (Robinson) Jennings' will dated Mar. 29, 1669, with a codicil added the following January, was probated before May 31, 1670, the date her residence was sold to John Butterfield for 3790 gilders. At the time the three children were under guardianship (at the time in the Netherlands guardianship was required for all females under age 21, males under age 25), but the same residence was subsequently inherited by the children from the John Butterworth estate.

[The documents that detail the above dates and detail were formerly part of an on-line multi-page searchable file with the Leiden Archives. When the archives separated documents concerning the Mayflower Pilgrims to a separate entity the on-line file was either deleted or is no longer available. Fortunately, the writer copied the entire file and the Dutch and English translation of the associated documents.]
