Flowers left for Ann Douglas
Anne Mattle Douglas - my ninth great-grandmother. She and husband, William Douglass, came to colonial shores in 1640 with their children Ann and Robert, landing according to tradition at Cape Ann, Mass. The family lived for a time in nearby Gloucester and by August of 1640 moved to Boston, where William was a cooper. In 1660, the family moved to New London and purchased from William Hough a house on New Street. William also owned land on Cape Anne Lane in New London, said to be the first street settled in the community. William and Ann Mattle Douglas became the parents of six children: Ann Douglas Geary,, born about 1591 in Scotland; Ann Douglas, b. 1637 in Scotland, d. 9/16/1691 in Roxbury, Suffolk, Mass.; Robert, b. 1639 in Scotland, d. 1/15/1715/6; Elizabeth Douglas, b. 8/26/1641 in Ipswich, Essex County, Mass., d. 9/23/1705 in Ipswich; Sarah Douglas, b. 4/8/1643 in Ipswich, d. 8/4/1689 in New London, and the youngest, William, b. 4/1/1645 in Boston, d. 3/9/1723, who married Abiah Hough 12/18/1667 in New London.
