Jared Spencer married (1) by 1638, ____ ____. They had twelve children: John, Mehitabel Cone, Marah Brooks Shaler, Hannah Brainerd, Sarah Backus, Thomas, Samuel, Timothy, Ruth Clark, William, Nathaniel, & Rebecca Kennor Tanner.
The early wife of Jared who was the mother of his children has always been named as Hannah. Jacobus follows these authorities though confessing that he has not seen an original source or quoted contemporary record so naming her. Anderson suggests that the given name of his 1st wife may have been Grace. Two of the sons of Jared Spencer named daughters Grace, and Jared made a special point of making small bequests to these two grandchildren when many other grandchildren went unmentioned.
The earliest known reference to a daughter named Elizabeth, who married John Stannard, was published in 1907, without supporting evidence, by William Henry Spencer. Most later treatments of the family include this daughter also wioutou evidence, & so we do not include her in the list of children above. The birth-order chronology is crowded enough with 12 children.
