Birth 17 March 1615 Ann was born on 17 March 1615 at Bishop's Stratford, Hertfordshire, England.1   Tho' it is very possible that she was born in Cork, Ireland as that is where she met Capt. George.

Marriage Ann Borodell/Borrodell married Captain George Dennison, son of William Dennison and Margaret Chandler. This was a second marriage for George.  George and his new wife returned to Roxbury in May of 1646 where they were welcomed as the local heros.

Their children:
i. John DENISON I, born June 14, 1646 in Roxbury, Mass; died 1698 in Stonington, CT.

ii. Ann DENISON, born Bef. May 20, 1649 in Roxbury, Mass; died 1694. She married Gershom PALMER.

v. William DENISON, born 1655 in New London/Stonington, CT. He married Sarah PRENTICE.

vii. Mercy DENISON, born 1659 in New London/Stonington, CT; died March 10, 1670/71.2
1648 It is said that she was very pretty, tall with brown hair and blue eyes and a very kind and gracious woman.

When George was not chosen to lead the Train Band, which was the group to which all males 16-60 were required to belong, he became disenchanted with Roxbury and moved his family, wife, 2 daughters by first wife and John and Ann by his second wife, to New London, Connecticut. There he was chosen to lead the Train Band, plus he performed many other jobs for the new village.

The Captain’s land was a dozen miles east of New London in the heart of the old Pequot Indian country. Across the Mystic River from the charred ruins of the Pequot fort, over the hill skirting the east bank, a smaller stream tumbles down a ledge and winds through a broad meadow to the sea. The Indians called it Pequotsepos, the little river of the Pequots. This pleasant valley was George Denison’s land. Here, in 1654, on a rocky knoll overlooking the meadows, he built a rough lean-to of poles and thick slabs of bark, little better than a square, slant-roofed wigwam with a stone fireplace and chimney at one end. Forever cognizant of the possibility of Indian attacks, he surrounded this rude home with a stout stockade, enclosing a spring and a couple of acres of land.2

Death 26 September 1712 Ann died on 26 September 1712 at Stonington, New London, Connecticut at age 97. She is buried in Elm Grove Cemetery, Mystic, New London, CT.1
