  Text: Francis married ‎(intention in Leyden, Holland 30 June 1603)‎ to Hester Mahieu. Hester was born, probably in Canterbury, England, between 1582 ‎[assuming her las child was born about 1626 and that she was then no older than 44]‎, and 1588 ‎[assuming she was at least 25 years of age at marriage]‎, died in Plymouth after 8 June 1666, but before 18 December 1675; probably the daughter of Jacques and Jenne/Jeanne ‎(--)‎ Mahieu, Walloon refugees from the area around Lille ‎[now in France]‎. If 19 at marriage and 42 at the birth of her last known child about late 1626, then Hester was born about 1584 and thus was about two years younger than her husband. As Hester was about 82 in 1666, it seems likely she died closer to 1666 than to 1675.
