    • (1) Anderson, Robert Charles, The Great Migration Begins Immigration to New England, 1620-1633, Vol. I, Boston, MA; 1995, pp. 642, 643:

      Anne Gower . . . died probably not long after Matthew Craddock wrote his letter. . . .

      ASSOCIATIONS: Anne Gower was a "cousin" of Matthew Craddock, governor of Massachusetts Bay Company in England, who wrote 16 February 1628/9 "and to hear my good cousin, your wife were perfectly recovered of her health would be [ac]ceptable news to us all; which God grant in his good time that we may" [MBCR. 1:383]; a sample of her needlework was deposited at the Salem East India Marine Society Museum in 1828 [NEHGR 1:203].

      (2) In an email message to the compiler dated December 6, 2020, Michelle Hartley, a Board member of the JEFA (John Endecott Family Association), stated:

      Gov. John Endecott didn't marry Ann Gower. His grandson named John (1657 - 1693) married Ann Gower. ''The family tradition that the first wife of Governor John Endecott was Anne Gower is probably incorrect. Someone as early as 1847 or before had made a mistake and concluded that John who was the grandson was John the grandfather and that family lore continued for many years. Several published works perpetuated this family lore. We can also say that the name Anne Gower never does appear in the list of passengers for the Abigail but says “wife” of the Governor. Furthermore, in the work of the Mary and John Clearinghouse in their work on the passengers of the Abigail states, “Mrs. Anne Endicott, wife. 40 Finally, however, we can say that Anne Gower Endecott did make it to New England through her only daughter and lives on today through the descendant families of her surviving children.''
