Birth: Jan. 25, 1607
Norfolk, England
Death: unknown
Leiden Municipality
Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

Bridget Robinson, eldest daughter of Rev. John Robinson and Bridget White, was bapt. Jan. 25, 1606/7 at the St. Peter Hungate parish church in Norwich, England. She was twice married in Holland, but when and where she died has not been uncovered. A careful study of the name index to and of the individual burials in Leiden has failed to uncover a record of burial for her.

On May 26, 1629 at Leiden, Bridget m. 1) Rev. John Greenwood and had at least one child, daughter Maria Greenwood. He was buried at the Pieterskerk September 9, 1635, a casualty of Leiden's 1635-36 plague that killed an estimated 18,000 Leiden citizens, nearly 1/3 of the city's population.

On July 25, 1637 purportedly at Amsterdam, Bridget m. 2) William Lee, son of the widow Joos (Josephine) Lee by whom she had at least one child, daughter Martha Lee. Bridget was alive and living at Leiden in 1680 and her two daughters were living at Leiden in 1684.

Some speculate that Bridget Robinson's second husband was a sibling of Bridget Lee, the third wife of Dr. Samuel Fuller. Dr. Fuller sailed on the Mayflower in 1620. In addition, that William Lee was the sibling of Tryphosa Lee, the wife of Stephen Tracy (Stephen arrived at Plymouth, Mass. in 1623 and Tryphosa in early 1625.) Further, that he was the brother of Samuel Lee of Leiden, who was thrice married and had considerable interaction with several of the known members of Rev. John Robinson's church at Leiden. However, there is no concrete evidence that supports these speculations, although the writer believes it is not improbable that William and one or more of the three other Lees were related.

[Some of the documents that detail the above dates and detail at Leiden were formerly part of an on-line multi-page searchable file with the Leiden Archives. When the archive's separated documents concerning the Mayflower Pilgrims to a separate entity the on-line file was either deleted or is no longer available. Fortunately, the writer copied the entire file and the Dutch and English translation of the associated documents.]
