Hester le Mathieu was likely born in Canterbury, England. The exact day is not know, but the author of his genealogy for the Francis Cooke of the Mayflower, The First Generations, calculated that she was born sometime between 1582 and 1588. He also calculated her death to be sometime around 1666.
Hester was likely the daugther of Jacques and Jeanne le Manhieu who were French Protestants (Calvanist). They had moved from France to England for safety sometime before Hester's birth where they lived until they moved to the Leyden area in the 1590s. The Mathieu family were from the area around Lille, now part of France.
