When was Hannah Winchester Stewart born?

I am trying to find a date of birth for Hannah Winchester. She married Duncan Stewart in 1654. According to many sources she was born in 1642. But this would have made her 12 years old when she married Duncan. Both Duncan and Hannah worked for George Hadley in Ipswich Massachusetts.
Can anyone help?

Thank you,

Ginny

According to the Stewart Clan Magazine, written in 1922 (so a grain of salt needed), Duncan's wife was Anne Winehurst, who came from England in 1647.  No further reference to a source.  I would imagine if she was traveling alone at that time, she would have been a young adult.   You might try ship lists for 1647.

Thank you so much! This makes more sense than Duncan's wife being twelve when she married. Also, there is question as to what her maiden name was; Winchester, Winchurst and Winehurst. The information you have provided gives me something to check into! Are you a Stewart descendent?

Thank you,
Ginny
Not a descendant.  Couldn't find any more details on Anne/Hannah Winehurst/Winchurst other than that text. Couldn't find a marriage record in Ipswich, Newbury or Rowley.  Tried multiple spellings for her name and Duncan Stewart/Stuart/Stuard etc.   Found some children's births, but mother's not mentioned.  Couldn't find her recorded death either.
