This yDNA evidence once again* proving the line of the Knights Washbourne through Wasseburne, Wichenford and down through Bengeworth to Plymouth.

The tests do not, by themselves, prove that John of Bengeworth b. 1479, was born to John of Wichenford and Joan Mytton, as the nature of this testing only proves that all of these Washburns' are of the same line. It is "possible" for this 1st John of Bengeworth to have been from a generation or two back, but thanks to the yDNA evidence, we can say, without a doubt, that the John's of Bengeworth and thus, the John's of Plymouth Colony, were descended from the Norman Knights Washbourne in this male line.

Haplo Group I-M253 Washbourne yDNA Project Biography

He was the son of John Washburn and Martha Timbrell. below are mostly excerpts from John A. Maltby Genealogies Plymouth Colony and Massachusetts ~ First Generation in America John Washburn, the immigrant ancestor to Plymouth Colony, lived in the part of Plymouth that became the town of Duxbury. Later in life he was among those Duxbury townsmen who organized the inland town of Bridgewater, also in Plymouth Colony. He had only two sons, John and Philip Washburn, who also lived in Duxbury and Bridgewater; his only daughter Mary Washburn having never joined her parents in the new world.

St. Peter's Parish, Bengeworth

John Washburn born in Bengeworth, Worcestershire, England in 1597, married Margery Moore, daughter of Robert and Ellen (Taylor) Moore of Bengeworth, England, on 23 Nov. 1618 in Bengeworth. She was born ca. 1586, baptized on 3 Nov. 1588 in Bengeworth, a granddaughter possibly of George and Elizabeth (Pepill) Taylor, of Alvechurch, Worcester.

Robert Moore married Elen Taylor on 19 Nov. 1585 in Bengeworth. He was a “Glover” in Bengeworth, and died there testate in 1625, and was buried on 14 Jan. 1624/5 in Bengeworth. The will of “Robert More of Bengworth in the County of Worseter, glover, was dated 18 Dec 1624, and mentioned his wife Elener, son and heir Thomas More, and the 3 children of Margery Washborn, among others. Ellen Taylor was baptized on 14 July 1567 in Alvechurch, Worcestershire, England, and evidently died sometime after 1626, presumably in Bengeworth.

John Washburn was a Churchwarden of St. Peter’s Parish, Bengeworth, in 1625-1626.

Duxbury, Plymouth Colony

He sailed to New England in about 1631 or 1632, and settled in the town of “Duxborrow” in Plymouth Colony, where he was a tailor. On 2 Jan 1632/3, John Washburn sued Edward Doty in Plymouth Colony for wrongfully taking a hog from him, but the court found Washburn’s case to be faulty, and dismissed it. John Washburn was on the list of those taxed in Plymouth Colony on 25 Mar. 1633. He may have returned to England to arrange passage for his wife and children in 1634, because his name was not among those taxed in Plymouth Colony that year, but he probably returned to Plymouth Colony in late 1634. His wife followed in April of 1635, in the ship “Elizabeth and Ann”, with their two sons, John Washburn, 14, and Phillip Washburn, 11.

On 5 Jan 1635/6, John Washborne purchased a “house and palisado” from Edward Bompass in Plymouth Colony, “beyond Eagle Nest Creek,” presumably on the “Duxborrow” side of Plymouth. In 1637 John Washburn was living in Duxbury, where his farm was described in the laying out of a path passing between William Bassett and Francis Sprague’s land to the town of Duxbury. The description of the path gives the names of some of Washburn’s neighbors. It was described as beginning at “Wadsworth’s, through Sprague’s and Basset’s orchards, thence through John Washburn’s land to Wm. Palmer’s gate, thence through Peter Brown’s land to the westward of Henry Howland’s house, thence through a marsh to Mr. John Alden’s, thence through a valley by the corner of Philip Delanoy’s farm to Edward Bumpasse’s, and thence by Rowland Leyhorne’s house to Greens harbor.”

On 4 June 1638 John Washburne acknowledged that he owed £40 to the King. Plymouth Colony Records include a decision on 6 Apr 1640 where William Sherman and John Washborne were “to have such accommodations of land as may be spared in the place where they desire.” Probably as a result of this, on 5 Apr 1641, the colony allowed John Washbourne 40 acres additional land in “Duxborrow.” He was surveyor of highways in Duxbury on 5 Mar 1638/9, and again on 6 June 1649, and on 4 Mar 1650/1 he was fined for failing to repair the highway in Duxbury he was overseer of. On 3 May 1642 a committee was directed to set the bounds between the lands of Mr. Thomas Besbeech and John Washburn in Duxbury, and Washburn was appointed on committees to “view bounds” in others’ cases on 1 June 1647 and on 10 June 1650. Morris and Jane Truant, of Duxbury, sold 28 acres of planting land and 2 parcels of meadow in Duxbury between John Irish and John Alden to John Washburne on 4 Mar 1647/8.

In August 1643 John Washborne Sen., John Washborne Jun., and Phillip Washborne were listed among those able to bear arms, aged 16 to 60 years, in “Duxborrow.” John Washburn, and his son, John Washburn Jr., were among the original 54 proprietors, or purchasers, of the new town of Bridgewater in Plymouth Colony in 1645. John Washburn became a freeman in Plymouth Colony on 2 June 1646. On 3 June 1662 he was granted a double portion of land at “Saconnet” (Little Compton), for his having been both an “ancient freeman and a former servant,” but there is no record as to whom he was a servant of, and he apparently never moved to the Little Compton area.

John Washburn served on several juries in Plymouth Colony, beginning on 7 Sep 1642, again on 5 Nov 1644, on a grand jury on 4 June 1645, and juries on 7 June 1648, 5 June 1666, and 25 Oct 1668. He was also on the coroner’s jury regarding the inquest of the body of John Paybody, of Duxbury, who died about 1666.

On 26 May 1666 John Washburne deeded his homestead dwelling house and land in Duxbury to his “true and natural son” Phillip Washborne.

Margery (Moore) Washburn apparently died shortly after arriving in New England, presumably in Duxbury, and John Washburn eventually moved to Bridgewater, although he took an oath of fidelity in Duxbury in 1668. He was living in Bridgewater by 17 Mar. 1670, when his son, John Washburn, Jr., sold a share of land in Bridgewater to Edward Southworth, and the 29 May 1670 list of freemen in Duxbury included the name “John Washburne, Senr.” John Washburn died in Plymouth Colony in 1671, between 17 Mar 1670/1 and 22 May 1671, but no probate records were filed for his estate in Plymouth Colony.

Bridgewater

In 1644, when the population of Duxbury was estimated at over 400, a movement began to start a new inland settlement in what was to be Bridgewater. John Washburn, Sr., and John, Jr., Miles Standish, John Alden, William and John Bradford, Love Brewster, Experience Mitchell, Edmond Chandler and William and John Paybody were among the 54 purchasers from Massasoit, of the town of Bridgewater, a tract of land extending 7 miles on each side from a certain fixed center. The Company paid 7 coats, 1 and 1/2 yards in a coat, 9 hatchets, 8 hoes, 20 knives, 4 moose skins and 10 & 1/2 yards cotton (cloth).

In 1645 he served in the expedition against the Narragansets and he served on the Grand Jury for Duxbury, MA (nee Mattakeeset, incorporated 6/7/1637).
