Kent, 9 Dec. 1563, was living 27 Dec. 1611, when his brother Thomas made his will, but died before 13 Feb. 1627/8, when his daughter Mary was licensed to marry William Sudell. He married, probably about 1593, ANNE —— , who was living as his widow at Tenterden 22 Jan. 1629/30, when her daughter Anne was licensed to marry John Beadle of New Romney. The will of John Hatche, the testator of 1628/9, names his brother William's children.

  • 10. THOMAS HATCH (William, Thomas, John the Younger, Thomas, Thomas, John), of Wye, co. Kent, and Scituate, Mass., born, probably about 1596, died in New England before 14 June 1646, when his widow brought her daughter Hannah to be baptized.* He married, probably about 1622 LYDIA —— . He lived for a while at Wye, where in 1626 and 1628 two of his children were baptized. .... The date of his emigration to New England is not known; but he may have come with his brother William, on his second trip to New England, in the Castle, in 1638. He settled at Scituate, and was proposed as a freeman 5 Mar. 1638/9.
  • His widow, Lydia, married secondly, abot 1654, John Spring of Watertown, Mass., but continued to live in Scituate. About her the Plymouth Colony Records, uner date of 6 Oct. 1659, have the following: "Conserning a certaine woman, viz", the wife of John Spring, of Watertowne, which was somtimes the wife of Thomas Hatch, of Scittuate, which said woman hath lived about three or foure yeares att Sicttuate from her husband, the Court have ordered, that shee either repaire to her husband with all convenient speed, or to repaire to Duxburrow to the house of Mr Alden, on the twentyeth of this p'sent month of Octobert, to give a reason why shee doth not; and incase shee shall refuse to attend this order, the Court will take a speedy course to send her to her said husband."† Evidently she satisfied the authorities as to her reasons for living apart from her husband, for in 1665 she was still living in Scituate, when, as Lydia Spring, she took oath to the statements which her son-in-law, Jonas Pickles, made to her as to his wishes regarding the disposition of his property after his death.
    • Children:
    • i. WILLIAM, b. in England abt. 1624; emigrated with his parents to New England; lived at Scituate and later at Swansea, Mass.,
    • * Much confusion has arisen and numerous errors have appeared in various printed works regarding two settlers in Plymough Colony named Thomas Hatch. Besides Thomas Hatch of Scituate, there was a Thomas Hatach, an early propietor of Dorchester, Mass., who was propounded as a freeman 14 May 1634. (Massachusetts Bay Records, vol. 1, p. 369.) He removed to Barnstable, where he was propounded as a freeman 1 June 1641. At Barnstable, in Aug. 1643, he was on the list of those able to bear arms, that is, he was between 16 and 60 years of age. He had land in both Yarmouth and Barnstable, and took the oath of fidelity in Yarmouth in 1657. he died about 1660, and on 7 May 1661 his widow Grace presented his inventory. On 3 Mar. 1662/3 administration on his estate was granted Jonathan Hatch and to Lydia, wife of Henry Taylor, who were without doubt his children. (Plymouth Colony Records, Court Orders, vol. 4, p. 31.) This Thomas Hatch of Dorchester, Yarmouth, and Barnstable did not belong to the Hatch family of Scituate, which came from co. Kent.

  • ANNABLE, ANTHONY - William P. Greenlaw, NEHGR 65:380, shows that Anthony Annable married Jane Momford at All Saints Church, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, 26 April 1619. He arrived at Plymouth in 1623 on the Anne, and, since he had four acres in the 1623 land division, his wife and two children probably came with him. On 9 June 1620 he sold a dwelling house and garden plot at Plymouth to Daniel Ray (PCR 12:17), and it was possibly at this time that he moved to Scituate, becoming one of the earliest settlers there. He was on the 1633 list of freemen, and on 1 January 1633/34 he was chosen constable for Scituate (PCR 1:21). He and his wife Jane were original members of the Reverend Lathrop's Scituate Church, and probably left Scituate with Lathrop (NEHGR 9:279). He was a deputy for Scituate 4 June 1639 and a deputy for Barnstable 2 June 1640 (PCR 1:126, 155). His wife Jane died in December 1643, and he married Ann Clarke 1 March 1645/46 (MD 2:212). He made his will 24 February 1672/73, with codicil dated 23 April 1674, sworn 4 June 1674, in which he named his wife Ann, son Samuel, daughter Desire and other unnamed daughters (MD 25:90). Pope was wrong in calling his second wife Ann Alcocke and in giving him a third wife Hannah (or Ann) Barker. His children by Jane were Sarah and Hannah (both in the 1627 livestock division), a daughter who died young, and Deborah, and those by Ann were Samuel, Ezekiel (who probably died young), and Desire (NEHGR 9:281; MD 2:212-13). Also, the Susanna Annable who married William Hatch at Scituate 13 May 1652 is shown in the vital records as the daughter of Anthony Annable (MD 2:33). Anthony Anable published a recent family history, The Anable Family in America 1623-1697 (Stamford, Conn., 1967).
