The following records show that Ann Harris didn't have the easiest of childhoods. I question whether the first record is this Love or perhaps an aunt. She would have been quite young, but times were different back then!
Deed Book 5 Part 2 "Orders" May 19 1687, Ann Harris, Love Harris, and Elizabeth Jennett acquitted of any wilfull neglect in death of an infant child of Ann Harris.
1693 Jean Harris age nine orphan of Richard Harris deceased with consent of mother Ann Harris bound to Malachy Johnston.
January 6, 1693 Coroner requested a ruling on his fee in cases of death by misadventure, with specific reference to the accidental deaths of Richard Harris and his two children. Matter referred to His Excellency.
June 1, 1694, John Harris orphan of Richard Harris, deceased and son of Ann Harris, apprenticed to James Lowry to learn the craft of a cordwainer or shoemaker.
Another version with different dates -
Love Harris was living in Norfolk County on 19 May 1693 when the court acquitted Ann Harris, Love Harris, and Elizabeth Jennett of any wilful neglect in the death of a 5 week old child of Ann Harris. This was probably the same Ann Harris, widow of Richard Harris, who bound her daughter Jean Harris to Malachy Thruston in Norfolk County court that same day. Four days prior to this she bound her son John Harris to James Lowry, and two months later on 18 July 1693 she presented an inventory of "what little estate Richard Harris died seized of" in Norfolk County court [DB 5, pt. 2, 287, 292-3, 298].
