He was the brother of John Foote of London, and the father of Nathaniel Foote "The Settler."


At the time of his marriage, Robert Foote was Citizen and Fishmonger of St. Mary Boettals in Thames Street, London; later he was of Wethersfield, Essex; still later of Shalford, Essex. According to TAG 54, St. Mary Boetalls in Thames Street is not easy to locate. According to "A Plan of London in the Latter Part of the Middle Age," there is no St. Mary's on Thames Street. There was a St. Botolph's (often misspelled Bowtall, etc.) at Billingsgate on Thames Street a few blocks from St. Leonard's. There was also a St. Mary's Bothaw on Cannon Street, four or five blocks from St. Leonard's. The author suggests the christenings of Nathaniel Foote and his siblings might be found in the London area rather than in Shalford or Wethersfield in Essex. Robert's will was made at Shalford, dated 27 January 1608/1609 and probated 15 February 1608/1609 (PCC 21 Dorset = Waters 1276 f.). It mentions wife Joan, a lease in Royston; the poor of the parish; the poor in Wethersfield. Joan was to have the yearly rent out of tenements held of Sir Robert Chester, knt., in the town of Royston; sons Robert, James, Daniel, Nathaniel, Francis, Josua, Joseph; daughter Elizabeth Foote; daughter Mary Hewes and son-in-law John Hewes of Royston. Robert, James and Joseph were apparently above age 24. Robert got the mansion house with stock of hop poles. Bequest to Mr. Richard Rogers, preacher of God his Word [the famous preacher 1550-1618].
Robert Foote Memorial

Birth: 1553 Shalford Braintree District Essex, England Death: Jan. 27, 1608 Essex, England

Robert Foote is my ancestor. He was known as "Robert Foote of Shalford".

The link to Helen Warren Foote as Robert's mother is tentative. There are compelling genealogies where this appears to be fact, and if she isn't his mother I feel she might be his grandmother.

My earlier research showed this Robert's father was named Robert. "Thirty-One English Emigrants Who Came to New England by 1662" by Dorothy C. and Gerald E. Knoff. Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT US/CAN 929.273 Al53k. These people visited England in 1967. I have forwarded this information from this record to other researchers for collaboration.

An article in The American Genealogist, Vol 72, page 54-5, gives our Robert's parents as JOHN Foote (d.1558) and ELLEN Warren, and further states that Ellen married a man named John Hall following said John's death. But it is in tree format and no details are given at all."

Information below and for this memorial is from a book published in 1989 "Thirty-One English Emigrants Who Came to New England by 1662" by Dorothy C. and Gerald E. Knoff. Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT US/CAN 929.273 Al53k. I tried to locate an electronic copy at the LDS library or any copy for others to review or to purchase, but did not find any available. Here is a website with more information about the book:

https://openlibrary.org/works/OL4812191W/Thirty-one_English_emigrants_who_came_to_New_England_by_1662

According to "Thirty-One English Emigrants Who Came to New England by 1662" by Dorothy C. and Gerald E. Knoff: "Robert was born to Robert Foote of Royston, Cambridgeshire, "descended out of Lincolnshire,".

"Robert died in London but was buried in Shalford on February 5th, 1608 at The Church of Saint Andrew, according to the church register." His will mentions his wife, Joan."

Kate (FAG # 48515281) provided the following information confirming the death place of Robert Foote. "In the book One Life at a Time: A New World Family Narrative, 1630-1960 by R. Thomas Collins, Jr., Joseph S. Wood RavensYard Publishing, Ltd., 1999 - History - 244 pages https://books.google.com/books?id=TW4Vz7T8zxwC&pg=PA30&dq=foote+churchill&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CDIQ6AEwBGoVChMIx-efl97lxgIVTKOICh08ZAZl#v=onepage&q=foote%20churchill&f=false

on Pg 15 it mentions that Robert wad burned, this is the only place I have seen this. Do you suppose they intended to say buried or as I had originally thought, he was burned as part of religious persecution?"

Robert and Joan had the following children: Robert; Elizabeth; James; Mary; Francis; Joshua; Joseph; Daniel and Nathaniel.
