      Fear Brewster«/b» (c. 1606 - before December 12, 1634) was a woman in «u»Colonial America «/u». She was the third daughter of «u»«i»Mayflower «/u»«/i» «u»pilgrim «/u» «u»William Brewster «/u» and his wife Mary, born in «u»Scrooby «/u», «u»Nottinghamshire «/u», «u»England «/u». She was named Fear because at the time of her birth, the «u»Puritans «/u» were holding secret meetings and were under constant threat of arrest. Her early years, and indeed her whole life, were full of unrest. In 1608 she moved, along with the other pilgrims, to «u»Amsterdam «/u» (and later «u»Leiden «/u»).
      Fear was only 14 when her parents and two younger brothers left for America on the «u»«i»Mayflower «/u»«/i». She was left in the care of her older siblings, Jonathan (born in 1593) and Patience (born in 1600). Jonathan joined the pilgrims in 1621 on board the «i»Fortune«/i». Fear arrived in America with Patience on board the «i»Anne«/i» in July 1623.

      Fear married «u»Isaac Allerton «/u», another Mayflower «u»pilgrim «/u», around 1626. He was 20 years her senior. They had a son, «u»Isaac Allerton Jr. «/u», born about 1627. There is speculation that they had a daughter, Sarah Allerton, who was baptised on August 13, 1633 and probably died in infancy.

      Fear died young, but the exact date is unknown. She died sometime before her sister Patience's death December 12, 1634.
