"6. William1 Spencer, baptized at Stotfold, Beds, England, 11 Oct. 1601, died at Hartford, Conn., 1640; married Agnes [probably Tucker], who married second, William Edwards, by whom she became ancestress of the noted Tucker family.
William's will, 4 May 1640, mentions cousin Matthew Allyn and brother John Pratt. The reason for concluding that his wife Agnes was a Tucker is states in New York Gen. and Biog. Record, 71:20, and we understand that investigations are now in progress to prove that she was the daughter of Richard and Agnes (Wyatt) Tucker, which would make her a relative of Matthew Allyn's Wyatt wife; and she may have been sister of John Pratt's wife, thus explaining the terms used in Spencer's will.
