About Barbara Wyatt

Not to be confused with Barbara Mitford, of Seghill or Elizabeth, 2nd wife of Rev. Haute Wyatt.

Barbara Mitford was born about 1598, perhaps at Newton Red House, Mitford, Northumberland, England. She died before Oct 1626, when her husband's second wife was buried.


  1. Reverend Haute Wyatt (son of George Wyatt of Allington Castle & Boxley and Jane Finch), on 6 February 1618/19 in St Marys Mounthan, London, England; his first wife. He married Elizabeth (unknown), who died in 1626, second, and Anne, mother of two more surviving children, third.


  1. i. EDWARD2 WYATT9,10, b. 1619.
  2. ii. GEORGE WYATT11,12, b. 1622.


Barbara Mitford of Kent was not the daughter of Robert Mitford & Alice Anderson of Sedghill in Northumberland. Their daughter Barbara was living and unmarried in 1623: see

There is some ambivilance in the sources about Barbarba Mitford's birth place. Many list it as Boxley, Kent, while others report it as Newton Red House, Kent. Newton Red House Is not in Kent - it's in MITFORD, Northumberland, England - perhaps a good clue to her origins.

"Haute Wyatt married February 6, 1618, to Barbara Elizbeth Mitford by whom he had two sons, George and Edward. It appears that the wife did not go to Virginia with him as she does not appear in any Virginia records. After returning to England, another son Thomas was born in 1626 and died in April 1627 at Boxley. Barbara Elizabeth died Oct 31, 1626, a few weeks after the birth of her son. Haute then married Ann, whose surname was said to be Cox [or Cocke], daughter of John and Ann (Lee) Cox."


From Douglas Richardson

"I show that Rev. Hawte Wyatt married in the parish of St. Mary Mounthaw, London 6 Feb. 1618/9 to his first wife, Barbara Mitford.

"Rev. J. Cave-Brown's History of Boxley Parish Registry only lists two wives for Hawte Wyatt. As I recall, this work records the burial records of Hawte Wyatt's second wife, Elizabeth, in 1626, and his third wife, Anne, in 1632. There is no mention of his first wife, Barbara, at all.

"If Mr. Bateman assumes the second wife, Elizabeth, is the same person as Rev. Wyatt's first wife, Barbara Mitford, he must explain why he thinks her name in the burial record was recorded in error, especially since she was the vicar's own wife."


1621 Our people arrive in Jamestown –  Hawte, Barbara and their infant son Edward (born in 1619) accompany Hawte’s older brother, Sir Francis Wyatt, to Virginia They sail from England on August 1, 1621 on the “George.” Sir Francis Wyatt brings the first written constitution for an English colony because he is destined to become the first English colonial governor of Virginia. In October Sir Francis Wyatt becomes the first colonial governor loyal to the king. Hawte serves as Rector of the church at Jamestown (1621-1625).  


"The first American-born Wyatt is delivered. Hawte’s second son, George, was “born in Jamestown shortly after the Indian massacre of Good Friday in March, 1622.”

Sir Francis Wyatt “rallied the defense of Jamestown which was attacked by Native Americans, during which the lives of some 400 settlers were lost and he then oversaw the contraction of the colony from scattered outposts into a defensive core.”


Thomas Wyatt is born to Reverend Hawte and Barbara. (Where? In Jamestown or England?)  Thomas only lives to age 7.

The Wyatts return to England. “In 1625 he (Hawte) returned to England with Sir Francis and helped settle their father’s  estate, and served as vicar of Boxley, Kent until his death July 31, 1638.”


Reverend Hawte Wyatt’s wife - Barbara Elizabeth Mitford Wyatt (SIC: Elizabeth (unknown) Mitford) – dies 10/1/1626. She is buried in Boxley, Maidstone, England.
