About John Corbin

John Corbin was called father-in-law of Ralph Sprague, a loose term, which actually meant step-father.

WARNING: Sources for the connections on this page are entirely secondary. I have found no primary documentation to confirm them. One secondary source claims our subject as a son of Henry CORBIN (1629-1675) of Hall End, Warwickshire, who immigrated to Virginia in 1654, but that Henry CORBIN was born in 1629, rendering such a connection impossible.

John Corbin was born in Fordington, Dorset, England a small village near Upwey.

Reports of his death appear to be uncertain.

In the series, "The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England...", and under the entry for Ralph Sprague, stepson of John Corbin, there is this entry "His stepfather, John Corbin, wrote from Upway on 25 March 1651 "I am very sorry to understand that my brother-in-law John Holland shall report ... that you are dead ... but I give God praise that I hear to the contrary" [NEHGR 134:198].". If this is true, then John Corbin was still alive in 1651.

The above information was found and forwarded by one of our very fine Findagrave contibutors, I thank her, and for now will leave death information blank.
