In Reply to: Anna Herrick & John Bridge by Denise Perkins Ready of 1814

I suggest that you consult: Bridge, William Dawson, 1924. "Genealogy of the John Bridge Family in America, 1632-1924". Cambridge, Mass. John Bridge who married Anna Herrick is treated as person number 10 on pages 214-217.

John Bridge “married [first], January 4, 1730, Anna, daughter of John and Anna (Woodbury) Herrick, of Wenham, born June 3, 1710; died Dec. 14, 1730;

Anna Bridge, born Dec. 7, 1730 is the daughter of John Bridge and Anna Herrick.

The full ancestry of John Bridge maybe found in this volume.

On page 218 there is this text:
