Alice Bredda Death Date
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Fall 2011 and Revised 18 Mar 2012

Alice Bredda's parents, birth date and birth place are not yet known. She may have been born about 1600, probably in England. She was the wife of Valentine Prentice, and after his death she married John Watson.

In reviewing Ancestry.com, we note that a great many entries there show her death date as either 1633 or 1643. Those dates are wrong.

Alice did not die in 1633 or 1643. She was still living on 4 March 1670/1 when her 2nd husband, John Watson, made his Will naming her as Executrix in that Will, and she was also living the following year in 1671 when he died because she was still named as Executrix and has a bequest mentioned in his Will. In 1671 she would have been about 71 years of age.

If you have the wrong death date for her, please correct it. And, if you see the wrong death on anyone else's website, please ask them to correct it.
