The first name of the husband of Ann (Bachiler) Sanborn is not known.

Some say he was either John or William and son of Edward Sambourne

and his wife Ann (others say his mother was Margaret)

but none of this has not been proven (or it's been disproven).[1][2][3][4]

V. C. Sanborn states on pg 17 of his book, "Sanborn Genealogy" "XV.

John Samborne, born abt 1591, of whom we have no record.

It is not impossible that he was the Samborne who married Anne Bachiler, but no proof is found".

He is called "John" by Savage, and also in an 1855 family bible entry published 200 years after the fact.[5]

"In the English Samborne family are several members either of whom may have bene the husband of Anne Bachiler. Rev. James Samborne of Upper Clatford, Hants, the next parish to Wherwell, like Stephen Bachiler, was an Oxford man and a Puritan... In Basingstoke, Hants, near Wherwel, we find a John Samborne, Sergt-at-Mace in 1651. In Cholsey, Berks, twenty miles north of Wherwel, Richard Samborne had three children... [including] John of whom we find no further record.... Peter Samborne of London Bridge, goldsmith, had son Markley, b abt 1606.[6] Biography

He was born about 1596. He married about 1620 Ann Bachiler.

May have been Sargent at Mace in Basingstoke in 1641 under his relative, George Baynard.[citation needed]

He died before January 1632 when his widow remarried.

Victor C. Sanborn was unsure of the identity of Ann Bachiler SANBORN's husband. ↑ In 1991, George F. Sanborn wrote, "The Sanborn Family Association in its continuing search among English records for the father of the three Samborne brothers who settled in Hampton with their maternal grandfather, Rev. Stephen Bachiler ..." ↑ In 1995, Robert Charles Anderson only "closely associated" Stephen Bachiler's first wife, as [Anne?], with the Rev. John Bate. He identified daughter Ann's first husband as only ____ Samborne. Great Migration Begins ... 1:61-69. ↑ "Sanborn Family Bible," in Connecticut Nutmegger, 41(2008):51. This may also be the source for the belief that his wife, Ann (Batchiler) Sanborn came to New England with her sons. ↑ V.C.
