Biography

165. iii. ANNE, b. in England; m. Francis Chickering. The same, who came to America in 1637 and who was made freeman May 13, 1640. Who this Francis Chickering was I know not, further than is to be found in the Candler manuscript in the British Museum, which gives no description of him; but in Savage's Winthrop, note to Vol. i, page 84, the Rev. Mr. Chickering, mmister of Woburn, is mentioned, who might be supposed to be a relative. Candler, in his manuscript, speaks of another Chickering, whose Christian name was unknown, to whom he married the widow of a first cousin of Candler's father, Benjamin Smith, farmer of Northall, in Wrentham. (Our Henry Chickering, of Dedham, was probably a brother of Francis.) This Mr. Chickering, he further says, went to New England after the death of his wife. Benjamin Smith was brother to Sarah, wife of David Fiske, emigrant. They res. in Dedham. He belonged to an artillery company in 1643 and later was Ensign. He was representative in 1644 and 1653. Their ch. were: Ann and Mary, b. in England; Elizabeth, b. Aug. 26, 1638, d. young; Bertha, b. Dec. 23, 1640; Esther, b. Nov. 4, 1643; John, b. April 19, 1646, d. young; Mercy, b. April 10, 1648. Anne, the wife, died before 1650, for he then married, June 16. 1650, Mrs. Sarah Libby. [2]

After checking the NEHGS article, I found that there is no information about Anne. The article does alter Anne’s ancestry. I’ll correct the ancestor and rewrite the “copy/paste” lift from Pierce’s work.

Are we relying upon F. C. Pierce for this biography lifted from his book on the Fiske family? Did one of the PMs check that it is corroborated by the three NEHGR articles cited? Perhaps someone could rewrite this bio and insert the NEHGR citations where appropriate. Checking the Chickering lineage to John Fiske as this makes him 6th great grandfather of President Benjamin Harrison.

Given the lack of sources for several members of this family, it's not suprising there's confusion.

Hey. I could have sworn this lady: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Chickering-5 was her and Francis Chickering's daughter. Why was she removed?

Might need to check the other Mary Chickerings here.....

Just a little confused.
