chose the pen name Patience Prence because patience is something that I have struggled with for most of my life.
Another reason I chose Patience is, Patience Brewster Prence is also my relative. She is the daughter of Elder
William Brewster of the Mayflower. She married Govenor Thomas Prence in 1624, and they had three children, Rebecca, Mercy,
and Hannah. I am descended from their daughter Hannah who was born in 1633.
Patience Brewster was born in
1605, in Scrooby, Nottinghamshire, England. Patience and her sister Fear sailed to America on the ship "Ann" in
1623, and arrived in New Plymouth at the age of 20. Led by her outspoken father, Elder William Brewster, whose break with
the Church of England prompted the family's flight, first to Holland and then to America. In 1627, Patience's father
was the Separatist church's elder and her husband an assistant to the governor, destined to become governor himself. Thomas
Prence changed his name from Prince, to Prence after he arrived in America. Patience died of "pestilent
fever" at the age of 29 before Dec. 12, 1634, in Plymouth, MA., and is buried on Burial Hill.
