|Husband Stephen Gates died before 29 Sept 1662 when the inventory of his estate was done.
|19 January 1662/3||In the report of the Cambridge committee for
seating the meeting house, 19 Jan. 1662/63, it was provided that
"Goodie Gates" should be seated "at ye end of ye Deacons seats." This
record refers to Stephen's widow.8
|Marriage||18 April 1663||She married secondly (contract 18 April 1663), as his second wife, Richard Woodward of Watertown, Mass.8
|Will||18 April 1682||Ann Hill (Veare) left a will dated 18 April 1682.
In her will, dated 18 April 1682, she described herself as of
Pompasitacutt (Ponpositicut, now Stow, Mass.). The will was proved 9
April 1683. In it she calls herself "Ann Gates." A footnote states that
"my last Husbands name was Woodward but I generally went by ye name of
Gates notwithstanding." There are conflicting statements about the date
of her death. According to Stow records Anne Woodward died 19 Feb. 1682
[ie. 1682/3]. Marlborough, Mass., records state that Wid. Hannah [!]
Gates died 5 Feb. 1682 [ie. 1682/3]..8
|Death||5 February 1682/83||Ann died on 5 February 1682/83 at Stow, at Massachusetts. Her will was proved on 9 April 1683 therefore her death was surely before that date. The will was proved 9 April 1683. I. According to Stow records Anne Woodward died 19 Feb. 1682 [ie. 1682/3]. Marlborough, Mass., records state that Wid. Hannah [!] Gates died 5 Feb. 1682 [ie. 1682/3].3 We may have a problem here.|
