About Robert Harbin

Robert III, son of 02.001 JOHN HARBIN I was born in 1588 and died March 14, 1659. As the eldest son he inherited his father's estates, becoming the third owner of Newton Surmaville House. In the civil war of the 1640's he took the side of Parliament and served as a Colonel in the Parliamentary army in the fighting in Somerset in 1642. Knothing is known of his military career during the war, but he may have persuaded his father to obtain a pardon from the king during a lull in the fighting. Robert concealed the fact that he had been pardoned from his friends and continued his work for the parliamentary troops. Eventually he was found out and heavily fined by the commonwealth. In 1611 he married 03.016 Gertrude Stocker Morgan, widow of 03.031 Christopher Morgan. Her father was 02.014 John Stocker of Chilcompton, Somerset. The fines exacted by the Commonwealth and the provision of dowries for his daughters left him heavily in debt. As a result he had to dispose of most of the property accumulated by his grandfather, Robert I, retaining only Meedford and Newton. His will was dated March 7, 1658. His portrait hangs at Newton Surmaville House.
