“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists."
― Franklin D. Roosevelt
 

Lancaster was first settled as "Nashaway" in 1643. It was officially incorporated as "Lancaster on the Nashua" in 1653. It originally included many current towns in central Massachusetts. It was the home of Mary Rowlandson. During King Philip's War the town suffered several massacres. It was abandoned in 1680 and resettled several years later.

Ann Linton Waters was born in Somersetshire, England about 1613. She was the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Linton.

She married Lawrence Waters in 1634. Their children and life together are described in detail in the section on Lawrence and Ann Waters.

She died on February 6, 1680 during the abandonment of Lancaster.
