ERRINGTON, ANN (otherwise written Erinton, Arrington, Herrington, and Harrington), a widow, died here 11 Dec. 1653; or according to the inscription on her gravestone, the most ancient now standing in our burial ground, 25 Dec. 1653, a. 77. She was formerly of Newcastle-on-Tyne, as appears by a document recorded Mid. Reg. Deeds, i. 87. It is not known at what time she came here, nor whether she was at that time a widow. She left children, Abraham; Rebecca, who m. John Watson; and possibly Robert of Watertown. (History of Cambridge)

A online source suggests that Ann's maiden name was Clinton and she was the widow of a John Herrington. But according to Frederick Lewis Weis's 1958 book on Robert Harrington (Early generations of the family of Robert Harrington of Watertown, Massachusetts, 1634, and some of his descendants ), John Herrington's wife's name was Elizabeth Clinton.

A Find a Grave contributor suggests that her maiden name was Liddell.
