Birth and Early Years

Daughter of Francis Marbury (1555-1611) (Cambridge educated English clergyman, school master, and Puritan reformer now remembered as a playwright ) and Bridget Dryden (c1562-1645)

Reverend John Cotton was Anne Hutchinson's mentor, and her reason for immigrating to New England.

In 1634, 43-year old Anne Hutchinson, her 48-year old husband William, their other ten living children, aged about eight months to 19 years, and William's aged mother, Susanna, set sail from England aboard the Griffin, the same ship that carried Cotton and their oldest son to New England a year earlier.

1636: Antinomian Controversy


In 1636-1638, Massachusetts Bay Colony, this family were Free Grace Advocates (AKA: Antinomian Controversy) which caused great religious and political strife in the colony. It pitted most of the colony's ministers and magistrates against some adherents of the Free Grace theology of Puritan minister John Cotton. The most notable Free Grace advocates, often called "Antinomians", were charismatic Anne Hutchinson, her brother-in-law Reverend John Wheelwright, and Massachusetts Bay Governor Henry Vane. In the summer of 1637 their opponents led by Gov John Winthrop won back political control of the colony. The following trial led to the banishment many of the leaders of this movement.

Kieft War Massacre

Because of religious turmoil, in 1642 the family left New England for the Dutch colony of New Netherland, located in what is today Bronx, New York.

Anne and her family were killed during a fampage by Siwanoy Indians through the Netherland Colony in 1643. Only their daughter Susanna, age 9, survived.
