Facts and Events
Hannah Feake, daughter of Robert Feake and Elizabeth Fones, was born in August 1637 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, America.  Other sources give June 1637 for her birth, but this is most certainly a misinterpretation of the 6th month, which was August until 1753.
Hannah Feake married John Bowne on May 7, 1656 in Flushing, Long Island, New Netherlands, America.
She died at home of John and Mary Elson, on 31 January 1677/8 at the age of 40 in London, England.
Some sources give DOD as 3 Jan 1677 and one gives the Quaker date of 3rd day of the 11th month of 1677.
She died on a trip to London for her Quaker faith; she had not moved there.
