Anne Bradstreet was the daughter of Thomas Dudley, steward to the Earl of Lincoln. Probably born in Northampton England, she was privately educated before her marriage to Simon Bradstreet in 1628; in 1630 she emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay colony where both her father and husband were later governor. In 1650 Anne Bradstreet's poems were published in London without her knowledge; a second posthumous edition with additions and her corrections was published in Boston in 1678.
