    It was thought this lady was the mother of Mary Long, first wife of Lewis Tomson. She probably isnt, but the William Spencer mentioned is probably the William Spencer, b.1707, son of William Spencer & Elizabeth Hooper, above, and the will does make interesting reading.
    From Kim:

    I've worked out that Ann Long is Ann Sackett
    (?related to William Sacket mentioned in 1641 Marriage arrangements between Nicholas Spencer & William Spencer and Mary Goodson )
    Ann(e) Sackett married Marten Long(e) in 1678
    her eldest daughter Judith Long married (1700) Jonothan Ticknor
    and (their dau) Sarah Ticknor (1707) married William Spencer.
