Elizabeth Fones Winthrop Feake Hallett

  • Birth 21 Jan 1610 Groton, Babergh District, Suffolk, England
  • Death 1 Feb 1673 Astoria, Queens County, New York, USA
  • Burial Astoria, Queens County, New York, USA
  • Memorial ID 35798902

Elizabeth Fones married (1) her cousin Henry Winthrop (son of Governor JOHN WINTHROP, whose sister Anne was Elizabeth's mother), 25 April 1629, who then left her to accompany his father to Massachusetts Bay, and immediately died swimming ashore there. She joined the Winthrop family in Massachusetts Bay as a very young widow with an infant.
She married 2nd Robert Feake between 2 November 1631 and 27 January 1631/2 in Boston, MA. They had five children: Elizabeth Underhill, Hannah Bowne, John, Robert, & Sarah.
George E. McCracken went into great detail on Robert Feake, and particularly on the matter of his "divorce," arguing that the couple had in fact received only a legal separation, and that Elizabeth (Fones) (Winthrop) Feake was not free to remarry. In 1966 Donald Lines Jacobus reviewed the same problem, and came to the conclusion that Robert Feake and his wife did obtain a divorce from the Dutch government, that she had married William Hallett by August 1649, and that the marriage was performed by John Winthrop Jr., her former brother-in-law.
