1816 Ann Withington Massachusetts House Sampler

Family Involved in Boston Tea Party

Ann Gill Withington was born January 11, 1805 in Dorchester, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, to Mather and Sarah Withington. Miss Withington's paternal grandfather Ebenezer Withington (1729 - 1800) was involved in the Boston Tea Party and was forced to give up possession of a supply of tea that The Sons of Liberty, disguised asIndians, had thrown into the harbor. Ann Withington worked her exuberantly decorated sampler at age 11. This outstanding example of early American needlework contains houses, trees, people, animals, urns, floral sprays, an alphabet, and verse.
