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.
