About Prudence Peck
Robert Peck (c.1566 to?) and Prudence Brewster (c.1570 in Scrooby, Nottinghamshire Co., England to?) Married: 6 15 1589 in Sutton cum Lound, Nottinghamshire Co., England [or was this marriage date for Robert Peck and June Junyver?]
The register of St. Pancras church, Leyden, records the burial on Saturday, 20 June 1609, of a child of William BREWSTER. The age and sex of the child are not specified. (Comment - It might be reasonable to assume that the "child of William BREWSTER" who was buried, 20 June 1609, was Prudence (BREWSTER) PECK, dau. of William BREWSTER, Sr. and wife of Robert PECK, since her brother, Elder William BREWSTER appeared in court eight days earlier as guardian of Prudence's minor daughter, Ann PECK.) -

- did Prudence (Brewster) Peck die in Notts or Leiden? I would to think she and her children were with the crowd of Pilgrim women & children who suffered so, trying to get to the Netherlands, and that she had her own share of the strong mindedness of the Brewsters to help.
- were the children (all) hers or her husband's by a previous marriage?
