I conjecture that her name before marriage was Olbon or Albone; that she resumed it for herself and her children when her marriage was annulled by the Court; and that, at some period subsequent to 1645 (when she is called sister Albone), she m.——Cole (perhaps the father of Arthur Cole, and died before 1668.
