Ann Smith Raymond* (1664-c1698) is the daughter of Joshua Raymond* (1639-1676) and Elizabeth Smith* (1641-1712). Elizabeth Smith, born at New Haven CT, is the daughter of Rev. Nehemiah Smith (Sr.)* and Ann Bourne* , according to the 1969 Raymond Genealogy (other sources say Ann's name was "Sarah Ann Bourne"). After Joshua Raymond died, on Apr. 24, 1676, his widow, Elizabeth Smith, remarried on Jan. 26, 1681 to George Dennis of Long Island, and had a son, Ebenezer Dennis.
Ann Bourne (or Sarah Ann Bourne)* is the daughter of Thomas Bourne* and Elizabeth Rouse* She was most probably born in England (c1608 - although some sources say the year of her birth was 1615) and emigrated with her parents to Norwich CT. She married Rev. Nehemiah Smith (Sr.)*, in 1639 in Marshfield. She died at Portsmouth RI on Jan 12, 1683/4.
Ann's father, Thomas Bourne* (c1581-1664) had emigrated from Tenderden, Kent, England and was at Plymouth MA in 1637. He was one of the earliest settlers of Marshfield MA. Thomas died in Marshfield and was buried there on May 11, 1664.
Joshua Raymond* is the son of Captain Richard Raymond*(1602-1692) and his wife, Julia (or Judith) Williams*. Richard and Julia emigrated from Essex County, England to Salem CT (Now probably "Saybrook/Old Lyme"), where he was known in 1634. He was a founder of Norwich CT, and an "honored fore-father of Saybrook". Both Richard and his son Joshua were seamen, and could have been drawn to the general area around New London and Old Lyme in the County of New London CT, to serve a growing fishing, beaver pelt, timber trading and ship-building community there.
Richards parents were Henry Raymond* and Jean Perry* of Essex, England who also emigrated to America. Jean had been living in Salem MA (not CT) and Henry and Jean were married there.
Nehemiah Smith (Sr.)* (1605-1686), known as Rev. Nehemiah Smith emigrated from England and was at Plymouth MA in 1637-38. He moved to CT and was one of the original proprietors of Norwich CT.
