     Anne was born in Combe St. Nicholas, Somersetshire, England. She was christened there on 17 October 1605 in the church of St. Nicholas.1 Anne married by license Henry Dunster on 8 May 1627 at Combe St. Ncholas at the church of St. Nicholas.1,2 Ann was not mentioned in her mother's will of 24 April 1634. This was probably because her mother was making each childs share equal. Anne had already gotten 3 score pounds, the amount her mother was making sure her siblings received. It was probably because of this, she was not mentioned. Henry was a witness to the will of Alice Torrey, his wife's mother, on 24 April 1634.
