About Abraham Robinson

Babson made the claim that this Abraham was the son of the Reverend John Robinson, Pastor of the Pilgrims at Leyden.  Subsequent research by genealogical scholars has disproven this allegation.  Nevertheless, we are left to wonder where this Abraham originated..

Upon his death Abraham left an estate valued at 18 Pounds, 11 Shillings3.

  1. The Robinsons and Their Kin Folk (Google eBook) The Association, 1906. Page 93. "Tradition has it that after the death of Rev. John Robinson, his widow, with two sons, Abraham and Isaac, came to America .... Very soon after they settled there with their families, Mr. (Abraham or Isaac) Robinson had a son born whom he called Abraham. He had four other sons, Zebulon, Samuel, Johnathan and Stephen, and one or more daughters. Abraham married young and had twelve children; three sons, John, Stephen and Andrew, and nine daughters, two of whom died young; the other seven were married and left families—Elwell, Davis, Butman, Williams, Soames. Mr. Abraham. Robinson lived to the age of 102 years, much beloved and respected by his friends and acquaintances for his piety and strict integrity."

"It was engraved on his tombstone that he was the first child born of English parents on that side of the bay."
