    • Genealogy of Pettit Family: Chapter V, page 12:

      Anne Pettit’s name is on “Hotton’s earliest list of emigrants, 1600-1700” (John Camden Hotten). In “The Wintrhop Fleet” Chas. Edw. Banks states that she arrived at Salem, Mass. Colony June 16, 1630 on one of five Winthrop ships from Saffron Walden, Essex Co., England. She transferred her membership from the “State” church there to Salem and from Salem to Boston in August 1630. She was enrolled in the Boston Church as Anna (Pettit) *Peters, doubtless was married after arrival in America and before August 1630. (Pioneers of Massachusets by Pope; Planters of the Commonwealth by Banks). William M. Pettit of Dayton, Ohio in response to a letter of inquiry written to the Vicar of the church at Saffron Walden, received the information that Anna Pettit of Widford was baptized there in April 1610 and was the daughter of Henry Pettit, a Huguenot refugee. No further information in regard to Anna Pettit Peters has been found. She was undoubtedly a sister of John and Thomas Pettit and preceded them to America.
