A Confusion of Judsons, Porters, Hurds - early 1600s, Connecticut

I am attempting to verify the ancestry of the wife of John Hurd Jr. Dec. 10, 1662, at Stratford, Conn. One version of her identity is that she was born Ann Porter, daughter of John Porter of Windsor, Conn., and she was first married to Joshua Judson.

Joshua Judson is said to have been a son of William Judson and Grace Ann Porter of Yorkshire, England, later of Stratford and New Haven, Conn.

This all means that Joshua Judson had a mother named Porter and a wife named Porter. I presently have no ancestry for John Porter, father of Ann/Anna.

My main concern remains documenting the maiden name of the widow Judson--Ann/Anna/Hannah/Johanna--who married John Hurd of Stratford. Any helpful clues would be appreciated.

If you prefer, you may e-mail me at

Tom in Port Townsend, Wash.
