(5) John Washburn, son of John Washburn and Margery Moore, was born in Bengeworth parish Evesham, England, and baptized 28 November 1621. He accompanied his mother, Margery, in emigrating and in the settlement of the family in Duxbury. He was a tailor by trade. John was one of the six men who went first from Duxbury in an expedition to quell an uprising of the Narragansetts and their allies and was elected constable in 1659. He moved to Bridgewater somewhat later, where he was the second largest landholder in town, having "four proprietary shares" located in the east, south and west quarters of the town, and rights in the undivided lands equivalent, altogether, to about one twelfth of the original purchase from Massasoit. He sold the land his father gave him at Green’s Bay in Duxbury in 1670. He married in 1645 Elizabeth Mitchell, "a youth of the goodly company of Leyden," and a granddaughter of Francis Cooke of the Mayflower and his wife Hester le Mahieu.
       John and Elizabeth had seven sons and three daughters. Of the sons, Benjamin went as a soldier in the expedition of Sir William Phipps against Port Royal in 1690 and never returned. John’s children’s names are gathered from his will; the number of his sons is made certain by a sentence in a letter from Thomas Mitchell of Amsterdam, Holland, to his cousin Elizabeth.
       John made his will in 1686 and died November 12 of the same year.

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.

He came to New England with his mother, Margery (Moore) Washburn and brother (Philip Washburn) in midsummer 1635 on the Elizabeth and Anne. (Wakefield)

His first wife was Elizabeth Mitchell, the grandaughter of Mayflower Passenger Francis Cooke. John and Elizabeth Mitchell were married December 6, 1645 at Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts. They had eleven children. She died about 1685. He married second time, Elizabeth Packard, the widow of Samuel. Her maiden name is uncertain. Samuel made a will dated October 30, 1686*. It is believed that he died on November 12, 1686*. The marriage would have ocurred after that date.

If he died in 1686*, it would have been very difficult for him to have married Elizabeth Packard.

Not sure what sources were used for the above dates of the Will and Death of Samuel Packard ... (see below) The profile here for Samuel Packard shows the Will was dated 29 Oct 1684 and that he died on 7 Nov 1684 in Bridgewater, citing "Packard's Progress", Vol. 17 [Feb. 1991], pp. 9-12 by Karle S. Packard as the reference.

John2 Washburn (5th), eldest son of John1 Washburn (4th), ( John A (3rd), (2) John B (Jr.), John C; born in Bengeworth, Worcestershire, England, in 1620, sailed to New England with his mother and brother in 1635, and settled first in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony. He married Elizabeth2 Mitchell, daughter of Experience and Jane (Cooke) Mitchell, of Duxbury, on 6 Dec. 1645 in Plymouth Colony.She was born in ca. 1628 in Plymouth Colony, a granddaughter of Francis1 Cooke, who came to New England in 1620 on the “Mayflower,” and Hester (Mahieu) Cooke, and possibly of Thomas A and Margaret (Williams) Mitchell, of Cambridge, England, and Amsterdam, Holland. Experience Mitchell and Jane Cooke had both sailed to New England in 1623 on the “Anne.”

In 1738 Abraham Sampson was presented to the court “for striking and abusing John Washburn the younger in the meeting house on the Lord’s day.”

When the Narragansett War broke out in 1645, the town of Duxbury sent John Washburn in August 1645 as one of its representatives to help fight the Indians, along with Sgt. Samuel Nash, William Brewster, William Clark, Nathaniel Chandler, and Edward Hall, for 17 days.

John Washburn (5th) was made a freeman in Plymouth Colony on 6 June 1654,[52] and he was elected constable of Duxbury on 7 June 1659. On 29 July 1661 Experience Mitchell acknowledged that he had given his son‑in‑law, John Washburn, some land between the brook and the Stony River, which John Washburn had in turn sold to Mr. William Bradford.

John Washburn (5th) and his father joined with several residents of Duxbury in the formation of the new town of Bridgewater in 1645. The names of John Washburn and John Washburn, Jr., are among the original proprietors of Bridgewater, which was incorporated into a town in 1656. In Dec. 1683 the purchasers of Bridgewater met, and laid out lots on the outside of Bridgewater, which became North Bridgewater, now Brockton, East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater, and South Bridgewater. John Washburn received 2 lots in East Bridgewater, 1 lot in West Bridgewater, and 1 lot in South Bridgewater.

Elizabeth (Mitchell) Washburn died by ca. 1685, and John Washburn remarried to 2.) Elizabeth1 (____) Packard, widow of Samuel1 Packard, of Bridgewater, in ca. 1685.

John Washburn died testate on 12 Nov. 1686 in Bridgewater. His will was dated 30 Oct. 1686, his inventory taken on 19 Nov. 1686, and his will probated on 8 June 1687. His will mentioned his wife, Elizabeth; brother Phillip Washburn, to be taken care of by his son John Washburn; sons John, Thomas, Joseph, Samuel, Jonathan, Benjamin, and youngest son, James Washburn, a minor; daughter Mary; daughter Elizabeth and her husband; daughter Jane; daughter Sarah, a minor; and brother Edward Mitchell.

On 1 Apr. 1700 the heirs of John Washburn, of Bridgewater, namely James Washburn, John Washburn, Thomas Washburn, Joseph Washburn, Samuel Washburn, Jonathan Washburn, Samuel Kinsley and wife Mary, widow Elizabeth Selee, and John Ames and wife Sarah, sold land in Bristol Co., MA, to John Rogers.
