He was a deputy for Hingham to Mass. Bay General Court, a commissioned to end small causes for Hingham and on a grand jury. He was also on a committee to levy a colony rate.

According to "Shepherd in the Wilderness," [as copied from an email posting] a biography of Peter Hobart written by Edward Franklin Ripley (2001), Edmund Hobart was the son of Thomas Hobart, Lord of the Manor in Hingham (England). According to the church records of St. Andrews Church, Thomas was married to Helen Windsofer on July 30, 1569, in Snoring Magna, Essex. He died May 30, 1603.

• Family Background Information.

According to "Shepherd in the Wilderness," a biography of Peter Hobart written by Edward Franklin Ripley (2001), Edmund Hobart was the son of Thomas Hobart, Lord of the Manor in Hingham (England). According to the church records of St. Andrews Church, Thomas was married to Helen Windsofer on July 30, 1569, in Snoring Magna, Essex. He died May 30, 1603. Edmund Hobart was born Jan.1, 1573 and succeeded his father as Lord of the Manor of Hingham , England. He married Margaret Dewey, who had also been baptized at St. Andrews. These were the parents of the Rev. Peter Hobart. This Edmund Hobart sailed to what is now Charlestown, Massachusetts, in 1633 aboard the "Elizabeth Bonaventura." He, with his son, the Rev.

Edmund Hobart was born in Hingham, England in 1574. He first married Margaret Dewey on 1 Sep 1600, and she was the mother of all his children. To escape the restrictions and persecutions of the Established church in England, Hobart left England in his sixtieth year for North America. Along with him were his wife, and three of their children, Rebecca, Sarah and Joshua, as well a their man servant Henry Gibbs. They left England in Mar 1633 and landed at Charlestown, Massachusetts, 3 May 1633.

Edmund is likely the first person by the name of Hobart in the Americas, and the progenitor for the name. It wasn't long after his arrive in Massachusetts that his children and their families also arrived in Massachusetts. First his son Thomas arrived with his wife and three children, then Rev. Peter Hobart, along with his wife and four children arrived on 8 Jun 1635

Edmund became a member of the Congregational Church in Charlestown, 19 Aug 1633, and took the freeman oath, 4 Mar 1634. Soon after he was appointed by the General Court as a constable of charlestown.

In Sep 1635, Edmund, his children and other friends moved to Bare Cove, a few miles south of Boston. They gave their new settlement the name of Hingham after the ancient community in Norfolk County, England.

Margaret Dewey, Edmunds wife, died at Hingham. He then married a woman named Ann who was the widow of Rev. John Lyford. Edmund died in Hingham, 8 Mar 1646.

--------------------

Edmund Hobart was born January 1, 1572/73.

Many sites on the Internet claim that he is the son of Henry and Dorothy (Bell) Hobart, which is clearly false, since Dorothy was born in 1572. That provides linkage into a noble line, but there is no rationale for that, and I can find no mention of Edmund as Henry's son in any credible location.

He married Margaret Dewey September 7, 1600. Margaret was born in 1574 in Wymondham, Norfolk, England, the daughter of Robert and Margaret (Stasye) Dewey.

This family is a direct ancestor of President George W. Bush (see Special Kelly Stories) thru their daughter, Rebecca (Hubbard) Bangs. Edmund and Margaret were parents of sixteen children (again notice the name change):

What is more, by confining the choices to only the ships bringing immigrants from England in 1633 reduces the possibility to even fewer people. Since his son George is well documented as a "Hubbard", I have taken that to be his father's name as well.

Edmund, his wife, Margaret, six of their children (Nazareth, Edmond, Thomas, Joshua, Rebecca and Sarah) and a man servant, Henry Gibbs, left Yarmouth, Norfolk, England the first week in May 1633 on the ship "Elizabeth Bonaventure". They arrived at Boston on June 15 with 95 passengers. They settled in Charlestown, Suffolk Co. Edmund was admitted to the church with his son, Edmund, and his wife, Elizabeth. He took the freeman's oath on March 4, 1634 and soon after was appointed by the General Court as a Constable of Charlestown, Suffolk Co. In 1635, his family, with three other married children recently arrived from England, moved to Bare Cove, a new place about 12 miles south of Boston. The residents later changed the name of the town to Hingham, after the town in England from which most of them had come.

Edmund was appointed to the Grand Jury for the year commencing on September 19, 1637. He was appointed by the General Court, on September 6, 1638, to be a commissioner to try small claims in the Town of Hingham. This appointment, equivalent to the position of justice of the peace, was renewed on May 22, 1639 and June 2, 1641. He was also appointed by the General Court, on June 16, 1639, to be a member of the committee to levy a tax of one thousand pounds on the twelve towns then organized. He was chosen to be a representative of Hingham in the General Court in 1639, 1640, 1641, and 1642.

After his first wife, Margaret Dewey, died in 1641, Edmund married, Sarah Lyford, the widow of Rev. John Lyford (also Layford and Lawford). Her maiden name is given as Sarah Oakley in LDS file AFN: WNFR-DV which also gives her birth as 1586 in England, her marriage on 10 Oct 1634 in Massachusetts, and her death on 29 Jun 1649 in Hingham, MA.

Edmund Hobart, the first representative of the family in America, was

born in Hingham, Norfolk County, England, in 1573. He was a deeply

religious man who emigrated to America to escape persecut ion and to

find freedom. He arrived on the ship "Elizabeth Bonaventure", John

Graves as Master, with part of his large family. They left Yarmouth,

Norfolk, England May 16, 1633 and landed at Charlestown,

Massachusetts, in the middle of June 15, 1633. There were 95

passengers on board. Listed were Mrs. Margaret Hobart, Nazareth,

Edmund, Thomas, Joshua, Rebecca and Sarah Hobart.

Edmund Hobart was born in Hingham, Norfolk County, England, about

1574, and died in Hingham, Massachusetts, March 8, 1648, aged

seventy-four. In May, 1633, he arrived at Charlestown. With him or soon

after came his wife, four sons, three daughters, several grandchildren,

and his servant Henry Gibbs. He was made a freeman March 4, 1734, and

admitted to full communion the First Church of Christ in Boston, Aughts

9, 1734, and stoodNo . 15 the freeman's list, and was one of ten citizens

who with Increase Nowell, October 13, 1634, agreed that only desirable

persons should be allowed to "sit downe and dwell in the towne". He was

constable of Charlestown in 1635. This same year he removed to Bear

Cove (Hingham); he assisted in organizing the F irst Church there of

which his son Peter was the first minister, and was made a

commissioner, September 6, 1638, the functions being similar to those

of a justice of the peace nowadays, permitting him to officiate at

marriage ceremonies, a privilege then denied to many ministers. He was

deputy to the general court in 1639-40-41-42, and was generally spoken

of as "Edmund Hubbard theelde r." He married(first) Margaret Dewey, born

in England, in 1597. She died in 1641, aged forty-four. He married

(second) Ann (or Sarah), the widow of Rev. Jo hn Lyford, an Episcopal

  "Edmund Hobart" was one who drew his houselot at Hingham 18 September 1635 [NEHGR 2:250].
  Although there are no records that purport to be the settlement of Edmund's estate at his death, the grant by Peter Hubbard of Hingham to his brother Thomas Hubbard of Hingham of "ten acres of land... also twenty acres of land with five acres of meadow ... also one great lot containing thirty acres ... all which was granted by a deed of sale dated 20 November 1647" may have had some relation to Edmund's estate, perhaps left in the hands of his son Rev.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTES: In 1951 Clarence Almon Torrey summarized the family of Edmund Hobart, with inclusion of all the English records known at that time [TAG 27:94-95]. Rev. Peter Hobart maintained a record of many of the vital events occurring in Hingham during his lifetime, and this was published in 1967 [NEHGR 121:3-25, 102-27, 191-216, 269-94].

-------------------- Edmund Hobart Birth: 1575, England Death: Mar. 8, 1646 Hingham Plymouth County Massachusetts, USA

Born about 1575, based on date of marriage. Came from Hingham, Norfolk to Charlestown MA in 1633. (An Edmund Hobart, son of Thomas & Hellena Hubbard, was baptized at Snoring Magna, Norfolk, on 1 Jan 1573. This would be about the right year of birth for the immigrant, & the immigrant did name a son Thomas, but Snoring Magna is some distance from Hingham in Norfolk, so further evidence would be welcome.) Removed to Hingham in 1635. Died there, 8 March 1646[/7] "father Hubbeard died." Married (1) to Margaret Dewey in Hingham, Norfolk, England, 7 September 1600 . She died before October 1634 when her husband remarried. They had ten children in Hingham, Norfork, England. It is not certain that she survived to come to New England, especially since she did not join the Charlestown church with her husband on 19 October 1633. Married (2) in Charlestown 10 October 1634, Sarah (_____) (Lyford) Oakley, born about 1586 (deposed 1 August 1639 aged "about fifty-three years," widow of Rev. JOHN LYFORD . She died Hingham 23 June 1649 ("mother Hobart died in the evening being Saturday, buried on the Sabbath"). (Edmund Hobart was guardian to the children of his second wife, and was otherwise involved in securing their inheritance from their father.) Source: Anderson's Great Migration Study Project. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Ship_Church,Edmund Hobart is buried at Old Ship Burying Ground in Hingham, Massachusetts

Find A Grave contributor Darrel Salisbury adds: Snoring Magna (Great Snoring) is c 20 mi. N of Hingham, Attleborough is c 4 mi. S of Hingham. There is a Little Snoring, c. 2 mi. S of Great Snoring. These communities were prob. closer together in the 17th century than they are on today's road maps.

Immigration 1632-3

This story has two parts, the sacred and the profane. First the sacred part, the Hobarts led a large part of Hingham, Norfolk, England to Hingham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Edmund’s son Peter was minister in Hingham for 44 years. The Old Ship Church, completed a couple of years after Peter’s death is the oldest continuous house of worship in the United States. It’s the only existing example of a Hammerbeam roof left in the United States, in my view architecturally beautiful. Westminster Hall is the most famous example. Edmund’s second wife’s first husband represents the profane part.

Edmund Hobart was born about 1575 in Hingham, Norfolk, England. His parents may have been Thomas HOBART and Audrey HARE. An Edmund Hobart, son of Thomas & Hellena Hubbard, was baptized at Snoring Magna, Norfolk, on 1 Jan 1573. This would be about the right year of birth for the immigrant, & the immigrant did name a son Thomas, but Snoring Magna is some distance from Hingham in Norfolk, so further evidence would be welcome. Edmund Hobart first married Margaret DEWEY on 7 Sep 1600 in Hingham, Norfolk, England. Edmund and Margaret immigrated in 1633. Their children Edmund, Thomas, Alice, Rebecca, Joshua and Sarah traveled with them. After Margaret died, he married Sarah Oakley on 10 Oct 1634 in Hingham, Massachusetts Bay Colony, now Plymouth County. Sarah was the widow of Rev. John Lyford. Edmund Hobart died on 8 March 1646 in Hingham, Mass.

Margaret Dewey died circa 1633 at Charlestown, Suffolk, Mass. It is not certain that she survived to come to New England, especially since she did not join the Charlestown church with her husband on 19 Oct 1633.

Sarah Oakley was born about 1586 (deposed 1 August 1639 aged “about fifty-three years,” ) she was the widow of Rev. John Lyford.

Hobart History and Benealogy 1632- 1912 by Edwin Lucius Hobart.

   [Edmund Hobart] arrived in this country from Hingham, Norfolk, England, in 1632, where he was born in 1574, and died at Hingham, Mass., March 8, 1648. He arrived with his wife, son Joshua, daughters Rebekah and Sarah, and servant, Henry Gibbs, in May 1633, and settled in Charlestown, Mass.  He was made a freeman Marach 4, 1633-4 and admitted to full communion in the Flirst Church of Christ in Boston, August 19, 1633-4, and stood No. ’15′ on the ‘freeman’s list’, and was one of ten citizens, October 13, 1634, who, with Increase Nowell, agreed that only certain desirable persons should be allowed to ‘sit downe and dwell in the towne’. In 1635 he was the constable of Charlestown. This same year he removed to Bear Cove (Hingham) and assisted in organizing the first church there, of which his son Peter was the first minister, and was made a commissioner September 6, 1638, the functions being similar to those of a Justice of Peace nowadays, permitting him to officiate at marriage ceremonies, a privilege then denied to many ministers. He was Deputy to General Court in 1639-40-41-42, and was generally spoken of as ‘Edmund Hubbard, the Elder’. “Edmund Hobart’s second wife, Ann, was the widow of Rev. John Lyford, an Episcopal clergyman from Laughgaid, Ardmagh, Ireland, who was banished from Plymouth Colony in 1624. She was a ‘grave matron and of good carriage’ and died June 23 1649.

The author of "One thousand years of Hubbard history" claims that the Hubbards and Hobarts are descended from the Norse Sea-King Hubba, who ravaged portions of France and England in the latter half of the ninth century.
