About Robert Colby

Robert COLBY was born in 1609 in Horbling, Lincolnshire, England. He died after 1636 at Horbling, Lincolnshire, England. "Robert, b. prob. about 1609; named last in his father's will of 1625. There is the possibility that he was actualy an adopted nephew and the biological son of Thomas Senior and baptised 24 Feb 1614/15 at Horbling, his mother having died when he was about 11 months old. It would have been quite reasonable for his uncle, Thomas the younger, to have adopted him. This suggestion is reinforced by there being no record of baptism of another Robert. In the list of expenses for repairs of the Horbling church in 1636, Robert Coulbe was paid 5s. for helping the glazer and to wash the old glass."
