About William Scarborough, II

AKA William (SR) Skafborowe or , Scarbuffowe,

Ronnie Lee Scarbro

"Hello Cousin:
     I have been reading your messages from the Scarborough Mailing

List. I descend from Robert Scarborough born 1708 a son of John & Mary

Pierson Scarborough II. Isaac Scarborough born 1560 John born 1620 is

old news for our line. I will list below the correct line proven by

Marilyn Winton from microfilms at the Woburn Parish in London, England.

It seems that Mary Pierson was not married to a Farr as first thought by

many researchers!!

Cuz, Ron

William Scarborough I born CA 1560

William Scarborough II born 1599

John Scarborough I born 1639

John Scarborough II born 1667

William Scarborough I named all his children in his will. His first son

was named William born April 1582 but died at a young age May 1595 &

named his last son William also born Nov 1599 that married Agnes King.

William was born about 1560. Most researches claim Isaac Scarborough is

the progenitor

of our line, however there is no proof of this claim which is based on

the "story" that John

Scarborough born 1667 brought a chest to America which bore the initials

"I.S" in brass

nails on its lid and the fact that the same name "Isaac" is so commly

used in our line. There

is also said to be letters from John in Pennsylvania, History; soc.,

Archives which mention

Isaac. It seems also that John was used more than Isaac. Marilyn L.

Winton, a

Scarborough researcher points out that "J" and "I" were formed the same,

in Old English.

The proof that William and Agnes Farr Scarborough are our ancestors

appeared in the

"Scarborough/Haworth" newsletter in 1994 and in August, 1996. Records

were examined

by Marilyn L. Winton on microfilm in Bedforshire, England, of Wolburn

parish records

1558-1653. Microfilm record was # P18/1/1. I have one source that says

William was the

son of John Scarborough born about 1520. I am not sure if this

information was on the

microfilm records concerning William that was examined by Mrs. Winton.

      William name was spelled "Skarborowe" in his Will , 29th August

of 1616. The words

in the will were badly mispelled which was written by Peter King,

probably some relation

to William's daughter-in-law, Agnes King Scarborough. This is his will

as translated by

Marliyn L Winton from microfilm ASP/W 1616/86 at the Bedfordshire Record


County Hall, Bedford, England.

ROBARTE SCARBOROWE Joyntly together & to theire heires & these ii my

make my executors.



Peter King writer and witnasse

    It appears that administration of the will was given to William

Huckell (son-in-law,

husband of the daughter Alice) due to the minority of Robert and William


(Robert was 18 and William 16, almsot 17, in the year 1616.)

Note: the"ii" was used by the writer instead of the word "two". The

spelling and grammar

skills of the writer Peter King, were not outstanding, but there were

perhaps no one else

available at a short notice.
