John Washborne (3rd) married secondly Martha (Timbrell) Stevens, widow of (___) Stevens, and sister of John Timbrell and Edward Timbrell, of Offenham, Worcestershire, on 5 July 1596 in Bengeworth.[80] He had 3 children baptized in Bengeworth in the period of 1579-1584, but his wife is not named, and no burial record was found for her in Bengeworth.[81]

Martha (Timbrell) (Stevens) Washborne died testate in 1625, and was buried on 29 Sept. 1625 in Bengeworth. Her will was dated 19 Sept. 1625, and was probated on 9 May 1626. She mentioned only her daughter Jone Washborne and her brother John Tembrel, and it was witnessed by Ales Watsone, Ales Orwaye, and Annes Hale. Her inventory was appraised by John Timbrell, Richard Moore, and Richarde Haye, and was valued at £24, 13 s., 8 d.

John Washborne had 3 children by his first wife, and 4 more children by Martha (Timbrell) Stevens:

  • 1. 25 i Radegonne Washborne,
    • baptized on 21 Feb. 1578/9 in Bengeworth,[87] no further record.
  • 2. 26 ii Daniel Washborne,
    • baptized on 22 June 1582 in Bengeworth,[88]
    • presumably died young. He was not named in his father’s will in 1624.
  • 3. 27 iii Mary Washborne,
    • baptized on 12 Dec. 1584 in Bengeworth.[89]
    • She may have married Isaacke Averell by 1624, who was named as a son-in-law in the will of her father, but who was not named in the will of his widow, Martha Washborne, in 1625, nor in the will of John Timbrell in 1626,[90] but no marriage record has yet been found for her in Bengeworth or Evesham.
  • 4. + 28 iv John1 Washborne (4th),
    • baptized on 2 July 1597 in Bengeworth,[91]
    • received 7 shillings in the will of Edward Timbrell in 1614,
    • married Margery Moore, daughter of Robert and Ellen (Taylor) Moore, of Evesham, Worcestershire, on 23 Nov. 1618.
  • 5. 29 v Jane Washborne,
    • baptized on 2 Dec. 1599 in Bengeworth,[92]
    • received 20 shillings in the will of Edward Timbrell in 1614.
    • She presumably died between the 1614 will of her uncle, Edward Timbrell, and the 1624 will of her father, unless she was the unnamed wife of Isaacke Averell, mentioned as a son-in-law in her father’s will, but not mentioned in her mother’s will or her uncle John Timbrell’s will.
  • 6. + 30 vi William1 Washborne,

    • He married Jane Nichols, daughter of Francis and Frances (Wimarke) Nichols, of Sedgeberrow, Worcestershire, in ca. 1625.[94]
  • 7. 31 vii Jone Washborne,
    • baptized on 11 Apr. 1604 in Bengeworth,[95] received 20 shillings in the will of Edward Timbrell in 1614.

      • He remarried to Mary Phellps on 29 Apr. 1639 in Bengeworth.[98]
    • No children were found baptized to John and Jone Shortasell in Bengeworth, but the Bishop’s Transcripts for St. Peter’s Parish, Bengeworth, are missing for the years 1627 to 1635.
