Biography

Hannah Rogers was born on 16 November 1668 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Pabodie) Rogers. [1][2][3]

She married Samuel Bradford on 31 July 1689 at Plymouth.[4][5] Samuel was the son of William and Alice (Richards) Bradford, and a descendant of Pilgrim William Bradford. He was born Plymouth about 1667.[3]

In July 1703 Hannah, wife of Samuel Bradford, was dismissed from the Pymouth church and received in the church at Duxbury.[6]

Samuel died in Duxbury on 11 April 1714 at age 46 and was buried in what is now called the Myles Standish Burying Ground in Duxbury.[7][8] Samuel's will, dated 26 January 1713/14 and proved 16 June 1714, named wife Hannah and son Gershom Bradford as executors. Among the bequests to his family, he gave "to my dear and loving wife Hannah" all the use, rent and income of all the the housing, lands, meadow and orchards which were to belong to son Gamaliel at age 21, and half the income afterwards as long as she remained a widdow. Also, all the income in his 1/4 share of a grist mill and fulling house given to son Gershom. She was also to receive his "Negro servant Called William," his stock of cattle. After his son Gamaliel's marriage, she was to have the two biggest rooms in his house in Duxborough while a widow. She was to have the income of his meadow bought of Caleb Cook, and all the residue of his estate after paying £100 each to his seven children at age 25, namely Gershom, Perez, Gamaliel, Elizabeth, Jerusha and Welthea Bradford, and Hannah Gilbert (at age 27).[9][10]

Hannah Bradford died in September 1754 in Hingham[11] where her daughters Jerusha Gay and Welthea Lane lived.[12] Hannah's will (dated 16 April 1734, codicil 01 Jun 1747, proved 05 November 1754) names sons Gershom, Peres and Gamaliel Bradford, daughters Hannah Gilburd, Elizabeth Whiton, Jerusha Gay and Wlthean Lane, with son[-in-law] Peter Lane to be executor.[13]

Rogers-11361 and Rogers-20 appear to represent the same person because: I can find *no* sources to support the data on Rogers-11361 and believe she is intended to be a duplicate of Rogers-20 based on her birth date (perhaps a typo in the year) and the death location.
