Ann Freebury

b. circa 1648
Birth*circa 1648 Ann, whose maiden name is not known, was an 'eastern woman', meaning from Maine, probably driven away by the Indian Wars; she was born about 1648 according to her own deposition.
Marriage*before 1696She married Ferdinando Thayer before 1696.

She was probably the widow of either Nicholas Freeby whom Savage mentions as being at Casco about 1680, or of Richard Friebury Sr. who was taxed at Pemaquid in 1687 (NEHG Register Volume 32, page 314). No record of her marriage or death has been found except in the court records at Boston which contain much information about her life in Mendon and her violent domestic quarrels with Ferdinando Thayer and his sons to whom he deeded his property, partly at least to prevent her from acquiring it. (Records of Supreme Court of Judicature #4657,4845,4703,4727, Suffolk County Courthouse, Boston).

Ann Freeberry (or Freebury) was an 'eastern woman', meaning from Maine, who had probably been driven away by the Indian Wars.
DivorceShe and Ferdinando Thayer were divorced.
