Descendants of Daniel1 Brainerd and Hannah Spencer

Background on Daniel1 and Hannah

1. DANIEL1 BRAINERD is said to have been born in Braintree, Essex, England in 1641. To my knowledge
that has not been confirmed with any documentation. He married (1) HANNAH SPENCER about 1663 in
Haddam, CT. He married (2) ELIZABETH (WAKEMAN)ARNOLD March 30,1693, dau. of Samuel
Wakeman and Elizabeth ?. He married (3)HANNAH (SPENCER)SEXTON November 29, 1698,widow
of GEORGE SEXTON, dau. of THOMAS SPENCER, making the two Hannah's he married first cousins as
Thomas Spencer was the brother of Hannah Spencer's father, GERARD SPENCER.
DANIEL BRAINERD died April 1, 1715 at Haddam, CT.

HANNAH SPENCER b.1641 at Lynn, MA. Daughter of GERARD SPENCER originally of Stotfold,
Bedfordshire, England and "HANNAH". I have seen it reported that HANNAH HILLS was Hannah's mother,
however I have also found in my research that there may have been two Hannahs married to Gerard Spencer.
"HANNAH" about 1635, and Hannah Hills mentioned later. They may be one in the same, if not the first
"HANNAH" would be Daniel's wife Hannah's mother.
HANNAH SPENCER died prior to 1691.
