Elizabeth Brewster, the daughter of Jonathan Brewster and Lucretia Oldham, was born May 1, 1637, at Duxbury, Massachusetts. She married (1) Sept. 7, 1653, Peter Bradley (died April 3, 1662), and married (2) Christopher Christophers (died July 23, 1687.
OF NOTE- It appears that Elizabeth (Brewster) Bradley had been accused of some scandalous behavior: MB&D, Roser I:261, 262, Footnote 6: Christopher’s wife Mary died in July of 1676. Connecticut county court records at New London, September,1673, however, tell an interesting story. About three years before Chistophers wife’s death, it seems that Elizabeth “Brawly” [Bradley, by then a widow with four children] was found guilty of fornication with Christopher Christophers who was a “married man,” the second of such offenses, and she was now “neare the time of delivery.” Delaying punishing due to her condition, the court nonetheless noted the “haniousness” of this crime and stated that she was to appear in public at a later date displaying the notice: “Let the punishment of my whore dome be a warning to others; or else to pay fifteen pound fyne.” Elizabeth chose to pay the fine. Despite this fact the Brewsters recorded the birth of John Christopers as the son of Christopher and his wife Elizabeth <Brewster Book, MD 1:7
