Biography

"The provost of Derby Cathedral, Mr. R. A. Beddoes, has just furnished a baptismal certificate as follows:

"'Baptism solemnized in the Parish of All Saints in the Diocese of Derby and County of Derby in the year 1600. Lucretia, Daughter of William Ouldham, Baptized fourteenth January 1600 by Edward Bennett (Minister).'
"From the published registers of All Saints:
'Married 17th November 1588, William Ouldham and Philippa Sowter.
'Married 19 May 1560, Thomas Sowter and Alice Turnar.'

Arlington, VA. John G. Hunt."

Lucretia was baptized on January 14, 1601, at the Parish of All Saints, Derby, Derbyshire, England.[1] She was a passenger on the ship "Anne," in 1623, along with two members of her family, her brother John Oldham, and his wife. [2]

Lucretia Oldham, sister of John Oldham the trader, married Jonathan Brewster, son of William Brewster of the Mayflower, on April 10, 1624, at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[1] They had eight children, three sons, and five daughters,

John Oldham, Lucretia's brother with whom she came to New England, made a good living trading with the Indians, but he was killed by them in 1636.[2] His shallop was discovered off the northern tip of Long Island, manned by Indians.[2]

Lucretia's husband Jonathan Brewster died in 1659.

Lucretia (Oldham) Brewster died on March 4, 1678/9 at Preston City, New London, Connecticut.[3][4]

Ancestor of noted actress and activist Ashley Judd, through her father.[5]

Research Notes

Jonathan Brewster is thought to have been briefly married at a young age in Netherlands, but his wife and their baby both died there. This would make his marriage to Lucretia a second marriage, but he had no children surviving from his first marriage.

Lucretia was born about 1595. She passed away about 1678.

Actually I DO have reasons to reject merges Vic; nearly every time I allow a merge now, ALL of my pages after that merge disappear! I have to then go back, and re-enter the information for each page ONE-BY-ONE, sometimes re-researching the information that was lost!

So YEAH… I have reasons.

Oldham-822 and Oldham-1 are not ready to be merged because: Because previous merges have corrupted the line of ascension as I move back through my lineage. I have completely lost pages (individual) and untold man-hours of work as well, and had to start some projects from scratch; So, I’m not sure if I’m going to allow merges or not at this time.
