About Samuel Wilbore (Wilbur)

born 10 APR 1622 in SIBLE HEDINGHAM, COLCESTER, ESSEX, ENGLAND, and died ABT. 1700 in LITTLE COMPTON , NEWPORT, RI.

SAMUEL WILBOR, jun., eldest son of Samuel Wildbore of Boston, was settled in Portsmouth, R.I., on his father’s estate, which was afterwards bequeathed to him in his father’s will. He married Hannah Porter, daughter of John Porter. He had one son, named John, and four daughters, — viz., Elizabeth, who was married to Morris Freelove; Abigail, who was married to Caleb Arnold; Joanna, who was married to Latham Clark; and Rebecca, who was married to Samuel Bowering.

It is probable he and William had the care of the possessions on the island; and Joseph and Shadrach, of the property in Taunton; and the father, a kind of superintendence of the whole during his life.

Samuel’s name, as one of the patentees, is found in the Royal Charter of 1663.

He became a man of wealth, having large possessions on the island. He held many responsible stations, and was much esteemed by the residents.

In his will, which bears (late in 1678, are mentioned, in addition to his five children as above, “Ann Wilbor, daughter of Joseph Wilbor” (undoubtedly his niece); “Samuel, son of Shadrach Wilbor” (his nephew); and “William Wilbor, sen. ;” and also “Francis Gisborne.” To all these he gave lands, and to some of them other property. His wife Hannah was made residuary legatee.

He died in 1710. His precise age is not known, although it must have been over eighty.
