  • Notes 
    • Colston was her 2nd husband: Her first husband, John Taverner, died so young and, apparently, not long after they were married. There is no explanation, or an exact date, but she would have remarried quickly. Her marriage to Charles Colston is dated 1713, only about 18 months after her marriage to John Taverner. Women could not own property and had no one to take care of them unless they had adult children to do that. Males who lost a spouse and had children also needed to remarry quickly. It was not uncommon to remarry within weeks after losing a spouse.
