Anne Pell's origins are not known for certain. Savage suggests she might be the daughter of Joseph Pell. Another source says she is the daughter of Joseph Pell, but provides no citations to support it. Other sources also say that Joseph is likely to be Anne's father; she was likely born about 1637. Her father, Joseph Pell married first Elizabeth Taylor, and had two children baptized at Great Hale, Lincolnshire, England:
Joseph came to New England with a second wife, Johanna Crocket about 1638. Hannah/Anna, whose birth date is unknown, was thought to be the daughter of Joseph's second wife.
