The Whitcomb Family in America

[Charlotte Whitcomb; 1904]

JONATHAN WHITCOMB,2 (John,1) may have been the fourth son of John,1 if James is counted among the children, though this is conjecture only, as no dates or order of births are known at this writing, (Jan., 1904). With his brother, Robert Whitcomb, his brother-in-law, Rodolphus Ellmes, John Hoar and others, he served on the jury of inquest upon the death of Richard Mann of Scituate, Mass., February 16, 1655, and must have been at least 21 years of age if the common law of England fixing the legal age held in the Colonies then. He removed from Scituate to Lancaster, Mass., with his father in 1654, and seems to have exercised the rights of a freeman thereafter. He, with others, signed a petition to governor and council for aid after the Indian raid of 1675-6, and, excepting a temporary absence from the town because of its devastation by the savages, he spent the remainder of his life in Lancaster.

From the death of his father in 1662 he shared the home-lot with his brother John until the death of the latter in 1683, when it became wholly his. That he acquired real estate besides that in Lancaster is shown by the inventory.

He was married November 25, 1667, to Hannah and their home was situated in the middle of the town. He died in February, 1690, and the inventory of his estate was taken February 25, 1691, by his brother-in-law, John Moor, Samuel Sumner and Cyprian Stevens, and was returned under oath by his widow, April 7, 1691.
