In need of some help finding confirmation as to whether or not Henry Herbert {Herbert-159} and Mary Sidney {Sidney-1} are the parents of Anne (Herbert) Higginson {Higginson-1835}.  FamilySearch and ancestry.com both connect them to Anne.  Wikipedia gives different information about her on her parents separate pages; on Mary Sidney's Wikipedia page it states that Anne Herbert dies sometime after 1603 (after the age of 20),  and on Henry Herbert's page it states that she died young.

John, her husband is treated extensively in Anderson The Great Migration Begins, Emigrants to New England v2 starting p 933. Some of the information contained in it would be good to include on her profile and is not presently there.

Unfortunately there is nothing on her parentage in Anderson which probably indicates Anderson found nothing conclusive. However NEHGR 64:88 found here https://archive.org/details/newenglandhistor1910wate/page/88  would appear to disprove the idea Anne was a sister of Governor Eaton. The end of that NEHGR citation has something laid over the text when filmed but perhaps you can make out the name that is obliterated which may help further.

The obscured name on that page is "Hillers" -- as in the lines above.

John, after posting my comment last night I spent a good deal of time going through materials about (and by) Francis Higginson, hoping for some clue as to at least where his wife came from, if not her maiden surname.  Nada.  But I will keep looking.  I do suspect she was relatively local.

I didn't see the question until now.

I can definitely confirm that Henry Herbert and Mary Sidney are not the parents of the immigrant Anne Herbert. Their daughter died in 1606. See her profile.

In 1603 she would only have been 20 that's still young, so not a contradiction.
