Patience Brewster was the daughter of William Brewster and his wife Mary.[1]

There is little certainty about Patience's birth date, sources vary between 1595 and 1603. Research may not hold the answer.[2]

Patience Brewster was born about 1603, probably in Scrooby, England, to Elder William Brewster and Mary (Unknown).[1]

She arrived in Plymouth aboard the Anne in 1623, and she and her brother, Fear also a passenger, received two acres in the 1623 land division as passengers of the Anne.[1]

She married Thomas Prence the following year, 5 August 1624.[1] He became Governor of the Colony. They had four children.

She died sometime before December 12, 1634 of "a pestilent fever". In 1634, smallpox and influenza ravaged both the Indians and the English in the New England area. [3] She is buried on Burial Hill, Plymouth, Barnstable County, Massachusetts.
