About Lt. John Sanborn

History of Rockingham County, NH -- Hampton By Charles A. Hazlett -- 1915 Chapter XXXIV HAMPTON

Lieut. John Sanborn, II with his brothers Stephen and William, came to Hampton in 1640. His mother was a daughter of the Rev. Stephen Bachiler. Lieut. Sanborn was an active, influential citizen, and was chosen to various positions of trust and responsibility. He was one of the most strenuous opponents of the Masonian claim and of Cranfield's administration. He was a signer to Weare's petition to the king in 1683. Father: John Sanborn, I.

In October, 1683, Robert Mason, Sherlock, the marshall, and James Leach came to Sanborn's house in order to give Mason house possession, when Sanborn not opening the door, Leach by the marshal's order broke it open, and gave Mason possession. Mr. Sherlock took Sanborn prisoner, when Mason openly told the people "that is what you shall all come to."

In 1683, Cranfield brought an action against Sanborn for saying, "I question whether ever the King knew of his, the said Edward Cranfield's, commission or patent." His four sons -- Richard, Josiah, John, and Joseph -- were signers to Weare's petition.

Stephen Sanborn was a brother of John and William, and came to Hampton with them.

William Sanborn, brother of the above named, was also an active citizen.

The authorities have been confused as to the identity of Lt. John Sanborn's parents. All agree that the father died in England. They also agree that Lt. John came to America with his mother, his maternal grandfather, Stephen Bachiler, and his brothers, William ( an ancestor) and Stephen in 1632.

Dow said his father was John Sanborn. He wasn't sure about the mother's first name. Perhaps this was a reliance upon an article written by Dr. Nathan Sanborn in Vol. 10 of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, at pg. 271, (1856), which said that "tradition" named the father as "John." Victor Channing Sanborn wasn't sure about the father's name ["Genealogy of, etc., Sanborn" (1899), pgs. 56 - 58], but he identified the mother as Ann Bachiler. Elmer Corliss Sanborn identified the father, Ann's husband, as Richard, son of Edward ("A Collection of Sanborn Family Genealogies" (1994), pg. 1), and he supports his conclusion with records. Curiously, however, Elmer Sanborn makes no mention of the previous conflicts and uncertainties. His view is not supported by the evidence.
