Biography

Ann Prudden was in February 1617 in Kings Walden, Hertfordshire, England. The daughter of James Prudden & Sibil Mitchell, she was baptized on Feb. 8, 1616/7 in Kings Walden, Hertfordshire, England. [1] [2] When she was twenty years old, she left England with her father James Prudden on a ship to Boston. Her uncle, Rev. Peter Prudden, was on the ship, along with a number of Puritans emigrating from Hertfordshire. The next year, April 1638, the same group left Boston, taking a ship to New Haven, Connecticut, where they were part of that community until November 1639. They wanted their own community, and bought land at the mouth of the Wepawaug from the Paugusset Indians who possessed it. The Indians were hoping for protection from the fierce Mohawks who raided them.[3]

James was a founder of Milford, and Ann is also honored on a plaque at Milford as a founder. Ann lived on Lot #8 with her father until her marriage, when she lived on Lot # 4 with her husband Samuel.

On February 14, 1640, Ann married Samuel Coley, another Free Planter and founder of Milford. [1] She was admitted to the First Church of Milford, where her uncle Peter was the pastor, the day before her marriage.[4]

Ann made a will 13 February 1688/9, in Milford listing children: Peter, Samuel, Thomas Coley, Abilene Chaping, Sarah Baldwin, Mary Coley Simpson Stream, and Hannah Bernsey. Son-in-law, Joseph Gernsey was appointed executor on Nov. 11, 1689.[5] [4]

Ann died 3 October 1689.[4] [6] Burial was at Milford Cemetery, Milford, Connecticut.[7]
