She came to Plymouth with her three children, Andrew, Susan, and Elizabeth, in 1629. She is mentioned numerous times in Plymouth records as "widow Ring", but it is doubtful that her late husband ever arrived in America. Soon after the arrive of widow Ring in 1629, John and Robert Ring embarked from England in the "Bevis" and are found in Salisbury as early as 1638. Source: Cape Cod Series 1:147.
Mayflower Families, Hopkins, pg. 12, suggests her maiden name may have been Durrant.
