Henry Cobb M, b. circa 1605, d. 1679

Henry Cobb Pilgrim


"Henry Cobb was the first known Cobb to emigrate from England (prob on the "Anne" in 1629) to the Plymouth Colony, Cape Cod, MA. Many distinguished descendants have long searched for his English origin and background.

RECENT DNA HAS DISPROVEN ALL PREVIOUSLY RESEARCH AND PUBLISHED ANCESTRY OF HENRY’S ENGLISH HERITAGE. THEREFORE I HAVE DELETED MUCH OF HIS HERETOFORE PUBLISHED ENGLISH INFORMAITON. WHEN MORE IS CONFIRmED I WILL ADD IT BACK TO HIS HISTORY.

Much is known on the activities of Henry Cobb, the Puritan, in the Bay Colony but little has been done to unravel the specifics of his origin. The most visible trail of "Henry the Elder" in England is found in his relationship with his church leader, the Reverend John Lothrop. Lothrop, “a man of good family and education" was baptized at Eton on 20 December 1584. He received BA and MA degrees at Queens College, Cambridge. In 1611 we find him with the established Church of England at Egerton, Kent, a distance of about 15 miles from the probable home of Henry Cobb in Reculver, Kent. Obviously disenchanted with the autocratic dogma of the King's Church, the Reverend Lothrop is found as minister of an independent church in London in 1623; and then on 29 April 1632, we find him imprisoned in London with 40 members of his flock for violating the laws relating to religious gatherings. Following two years imprisonment, Lothrop left England in the ship "Griffin" with his family and some members of his church for the Plymouth colony, arriving there 18 September 1634. Here Henry Cobb, the Lothrop protégé who had been in the Colony for about five years, responded to the call of his old friend and esteemed pastor. He aided the Reverend in getting his family and church established in the newly formed town of Scituate. Lothrop’s records published in the New England Register, Volumes IX and X, leaves little doubt of Henry Cobb’s membership in Lothrop’s London church:

"Upon January 8, 1634, Wee had a day of humiliation and then at night joyned in covenaunt together, so many of us had beene in covenaunt before. To Witt.

Mr. Gilsonn and his wife

Henry was born about 1605. (He married Patience Hurst in Plymouth in 1631; English Yeoman of his time, married at age 26, thus the basis for his date of birth). Most men of Kent were farmers in an area famous for hops, fruit, and grain. Even in this age, importance was attached to the idea of status. The term "Yeoman" was commonly used in legal and other documents to denote status above "Husbandman" (smaller, less prosperous farmer) and below that of "Gentleman" (upper middle class). Yeomen, from whom Henry Cobb was descended, were reasonably well educated. Some Yeomen sons attended the universities; some became clergymen.

The nature of Henry Cobb's apprenticeship or trade in London is open to conjecture. The fact that he came from an area rich in hops and grain and later in the Colony he was authorized to dispense wine suggests the production and/or sale of ale, the national beverage of the era. From the Plymouth Colony Record 1173; "5 June 1644, Henry Cobb is lycensed to draw wine at Barnstable."

What better place than an English pub in the 17th century to keep abreast of politics, religion and emigration. Henry Cobb of London must certainly have been aware of a number of significant events, viz: That in 1604, in a declaration at Hampton Court, James I said of the Puritans, "I shall make them conform themselves or I will harry them out of the Land or else do worst." Henry must have known the story of an undereducated group of separatists called "Pilgrims" who sough refuge first in Amsterdam and subsequently in Leyden, Holland; and the unwilling to be assimilated into the Dutch culture, made their way to Plymouth in 1620 aboard the "Mayflower". (of the 101 passengers on the first voyage of the Mayflower, 35 were Leyden adventurers.) In 1628 the Puritans of Henry Cobb's sect began their mass exodus. In 1630 John Winthrop, a strong and able leader, led nearly 1000 Puritans with their cattle and horses to settlements in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. In general the Puritans were a wealthier and better educated class than the Pilgrims but they shared their deeply religious convictions. It was shortly after the Winthrop departure that Henry Cobb made his move, probably in the ship "The Anne" in 1629. Other possible ships include " Mayflower II' and the "Little James", which also arrived at Cape Cod in 1629. Professor Cobb said in his character analysis of Henry, the emigrant, that he was "sensible, shrewd, adverse to making trouble or being a part of it." Cobb didn't linger in London long enough to be jailed in the famous "clink" with the zealous Lothrop and his followers in 1632. When the great Civil War of 1642 came about to settle the question of supremacy between King and Parliament, High Church and Puritans, Henry Cobb is found saving souls and selling wine in Massachusetts."

John Lothrop, "Goodman Cobbe's" house is seventh on the list, among those in place before September 1634; this is annotated "now Goodman Rowlye's" and "now Goodman Vinall's," perhaps indicating that there were two houses on this lot, or perhaps implying that Rowley purchased the house from Cobb and then sold it to Vinall. Later in the list, at position #32, among houses built in 1636, is "Brother Cobb's, on his lot," this being his second residence in Scituate, and probably the lot that he sold to Manasseh Kempton when he removed to Barnstable.

On 1 December 1640 "Henry Cob" sold to "Manasseth Kempton" of Plymouth his house in Scituate with twelve acres of upland with the parcel of meadow lying before the house and fourscore acres of upland in the fourth lot by North River, with a parcel of marsh meadow of about twelve acres [PCR 12:65].

In his will, dated 4 April 1678 and proved 3 June 1679, "Henery Cobb" of Barnstable, though "weak in body," bequeathed to "my son James Cobb" my great lot in Barnstable; to "my sons John, James, Gershom and Eliezer" half my lands at Suconeesett equally divided between them "and 40s. being in the hand of my son James for my son Eliezer's part"; to "Sarah my dear and loving wife during her natural life" my new dwelling house and all the rest of my lands; at Sarah's decease, to "my son Samuel" my dwelling house and two acres of upland, and an acre and a half of my marsh which I bought with his stock in partnership with my son James; to "my sons Samuel, Jonathan and Henry" residue of lands equally; to "my sons John, Gershom and Eliezer" one shilling each; to "my daughters Mary, Hannah and Patience" one shilling each; to "my daughter Sarah" my second best bed and furniture; residue to Sarah "my loving wife and sole executrix." Codicil dated 22 February 1678[/9]: "my son Samuel" shall have only two acres of my upland after my wife's decease and all the rest of my lands equally divided between my "three sons Samuel, Jonathan and Henry"; Henry to have my house after my wife's decease and his part of the land to lie most convenient to the house, only my lands at the Island equally divided between my three sons; "my son James to dry thatch on half an acre of the Island when the English corn is taken off..." [transcribed in full in Cobb Gen 14-15, citing PCPR 4:1:22-23].

The inventory of the estate of "Elder Henery Cobb Late of Barnstable" was undated and untotalled and included "a house land and meadow" valued at œ80. He also owned part of a "thachboate" [transcribed in full in Cobb Gen 16-17, citing PCPR 4:1:23].

On 2 March 1679/80, administration of the estate of Sarah Cobb was granted to Mr. Thomas Hinckley and Samuel Cobb, who were "with the advice and help of their friends and relations, to make a distribution of the estate amongst the children, still having a special respect therein to the youngest children, for their best good" [PCR 6:32].

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: Henry Cobb and his family were treated in detail by Philip L. Cobb early in this century [A History of the Cobb Family, Part 1 (Cleveland 1907), cited above as Cobb Gen]. This genealogy is to be commended for including full transcripts of many records for the early generations, while at the same time avoiding the many legends and traditional tales typical of volumes published in that era.
