Ann Freebury

b. circa 1648
Birth*circa 1648 Ann, whose maiden name is not known, was an 'eastern woman', meaning from Maine, probably driven away by the Indian Wars; she was born about 1648 according to her own deposition.
Marriage*before 1696She married Ferdinando Thayer before 1696.

She was probably the widow of either Nicholas Freeby whom Savage mentions as being at Casco about 1680, or of Richard Friebury Sr. who was taxed at Pemaquid in 1687 (NEHG Register Volume 32, page 314). No record of her marriage or death has been found except in the court records at Boston which contain much information about her life in Mendon and her violent domestic quarrels with Ferdinando Thayer and his sons to whom he deeded his property, partly at least to prevent her from acquiring it. (Records of Supreme Court of Judicature #4657,4845,4703,4727, Suffolk County Courthouse, Boston).

Ann Freeberry (or Freebury) was an 'eastern woman', meaning from Maine, who had probably been driven away by the Indian Wars.
DivorceAnn Freebury and Ferdinando Thayer were divorced.

It was not a happy marriage. According to court documents, Ferdinando’s domestic troubles began as early as July 1696 when Ann Thear, aged 48 years, was deposed in court. (Records of Supreme Court of Judicature #4342). She testified that she saw Ebenezer Thear sell two quarts of sider to an Indian.

She departed from Ferdinando Thayer after 1700, when he made an agreement 'to be shaft of her' after she testified he and his sons sold liquor to the Indians and that he had deserved to have his house burnt by the Indians during the War and that it would occur again if he did not stop trafficking with them; that he had tried to starve her by not providing food in the house, etc.

On May 7,1700 Ferdinando Thear complained of “the wild words, carriages and actions of my wicked disposed and perverse wife Ann Thear, formally an Eastern woman, and until my unhappy marriage with her known by the name of Ann Freeberry who hath been endeavoring to ruinate me in respect to my person, name, and estate either by fire in burning my house over my head as she hath lately threatened in so much that I am afraid to live with her”, etc., “and that none of my children durst live with me, and I am unable to help myself being almost 80 years old, and by reason of her private conveying of things out of the house my house is left almost destitute of outwards comforts”, etc. Depositions were also made by Ebenezer Thayer aged 26, and Martha his wife aged 25, and Benjamin Thayer aged 20, William Howard aged 32, John Rocket aged 59, John Bridges aged 52, and Peter Holbrook aged 41. (Records of Supreme Court of Judicature #4657, 4845, 4703, and 4727 in Suffolk County Courthouse, Boston.)
