~~ Connecticut Colony and Hempstead, Long Island ~~

--- First Generation in America ---

 

 

         William Washburn, the immigrant ancestor to Connecticut Colony, and later Hempstead, Long Island, did not join his brother John Washburn in Plymouth Colony. He remained in England, where he raised a large family, and finally sailed with his in-laws to Connecticut, eventually purchasing land and moving out to Long Island.

 

 

(30.) William1 Washburn, third son of (10) JohnA Washborne (3rd), (2) JohnB (Jr.), (1) JohnC; born in Bengeworth, Worcestershire, England, in 1601,[1] married Jane2 Nicholls, daughter of Francis1 and Frances (Wimarke) Nicholls, of Sedgeberrow,[2] Worcestershire, in ca. 1625, probably in Bengeworth, Worcestershire.[3] She was baptized on 14 Nov. 1603 in Sedgeberrow,[4] a granddaughter of JohnA Nicholls, of Sedgeberrow.[5] They sailed to New England and settled first in Stratford, Connecticut Colony, with the Nicholses.[6] On 5 Dec. 1679 John Washburn, of “Corberry upon Long Island,” eldest son of William and Jane Washburn, gave a receipt to his uncle, Isaac Nicols, of Stratford, for £22 1s 8d “which was the whole amount sent over to me in the year sixteen hundred and seventy seven I do acknowledge by these presents that I have received the sum and I do forever requit discharge exonerate my said uncle and all his executors administrators of the said sums or any demans upon that amount from me or my heirs executors or assigns…”[7] proving that there was some kinship between the family of Isaac Nichols and John Washburn.

         In about 1645 William and Jane Washburn moved to Hempstead, Long Island, supposedly with “Rev. Mr. Leverich.”[8] The earliest record of William Washburn in Hempstead is in 1646 when “William Wasbandt” testified in court that he had sold a sow to a Mr. Stickley, the defendant, in a lawsuit brought by Tonis Nyssen, which was settled on 18 Oct. 1646 at Ft. Amsterdam in the New Amsterdam Colony.[9]

         As one of the first purchasers in Hempstead, William Washburn was chosen as a deputy from Hempstead, along with John Seaman, Robert Coe, and John Hicks, to appeal to the British about the Dutch government from the Colony of New Netherlands, assuming jurisdiction over Long Island, and Washburn carried a remonstrance to the Dutch Governor, Peter Stuyvesant, in New Amsterdam, in 1653, regarding the English colonists’ concerns.[10]

         In 1653 William Washburn and his son, John Washburn, both purchased land at Oyster Bay, Long Island, from the Indians, as joint purchasers along with Anthony Wright, Robert Williams, Thos. Armitage, Dan. Whitehead, Ric. Holbrooke, William Leverich, and Samuell Mayo. The deed was recorded 27 Mar. 1667 in New York.[11] Also in 1653 William Washburn was a witness to an Indian Deed in Oyster Bay, Long Island, in 1654 he was called “of Hempstead” in a New Haven Colony court record, and in 1654-1655 he was a member of the Assembly at Hempstead.[12]

         William Washburn he died testate in 1659 in Hempstead, Long Is­land. His will was dated 29 Sept. 1657, and was presented for probate by his widow, Jane Washborne, on 11 June 1659. He mentioned his sons Hope and John, daughters Patience, Hester, and Phebe, who were as yet unmarried, son-in-law Robert Williams’ children, son-in-law Edward Titus, Sara the daughter of Robert Jackson, and son-in-law Richard Willets. (See Appendix J for a full transcription of his will.) His wife had died sometime before him.

         William Washburn and Jane Nicholls had children, order uncertain:

+       46       i   Sarah2 Washburn, baptized on 26 Mar. 1626 in Bengeworth,[13] Worcestershire, England, married Robert1 Williams,[14] of Oyster Bay and Hempstead, Long Island, in ca. 1645.[15] (Continued.)

+       47       ii   (___)2 Washburn,[16] born about 1627 or 1628 in Bengeworth,[17] Worcestershire, England, married Robert Jackson, probably as his second wife, in ca. 1652,[18] presumably in Hempstead, Long Island. (Continued.)

+       48      iii   Mary2 Washburn, born about 1628 or 1629 in Bengeworth,[19] Worcestershire, England, married Richard1 Willets, of Hempstead, in ca. 1649.[20] (Continued.)

+       49      iv   John2 Washburn, born about 1630 or 1631 in Bengeworth,[21] Worcestershire, married Mary2 Butler, daughter of Richard1 Butler, on 7 June 1655 in Stratford, CT.[22] (Continued.)

         50       v   Martha Washburn, probably born around 1633 or 1634 in Bengeworth, Worcestershire, buried on 14 Feb. 1636 in Bengeworth.[23]

+       51      vi   Hope2 Washburn, a son, born about 1634 or 1635 in Bengeworth,[24] Worcestershire, married Mary2 Stiles, daughter of Francis1 and Sarah Stiles, in ca. 1660 in Stratford, CT.[25] (Continued.)

+       52     vii   Martha2 Washburn, baptized on 18 Dec. 1637 in Bengeworth,[26] Worcestershire, married Edmund2 Titus, son of Robert1 and Hannah Titus, of Rehoboth, MA, and Huntington, Long Island,[27] in ca. 1657.[28] (Continued.)

         53    viii   Phebe2 Washburn, supposedly born in 1641 in Stratford, CT, married John Ashman, of Long Island, in ca. 1661.[29] (Continued.)

         54      ix   Patience Washburn, named in her father’s will, was still unmarried in 1657, marriage not found. It is presumed that she died unmarried.

         55       x   Hester Washburn, named in her father’s will, was still unmarried in 1657, and died in 1659.

 

 

 

--- Second Generation in America ---

 

 

         By the second generation the children of William Washburn were beginning to separate. Eldest son John Washburn’s only son remained on Long Island, but his descendants moved across the sound into Westchester Co., New York. Second son Hope Washburn moved back to Stratford, Connecticut, eventually settling in the town of Derby in New Haven Co., Connecticut. Most of the daughters of William Washburn married and had children that also spread out from Long Island into the New York Colony.

         My research on the families of William Washburn’s daughters has not been nearly as extensive as that of the Plymouth Colony side, so this section is subject to constant revision as new information is uncovered.

Their eldest child, Elisabeth (Jackson) Doughty, died in Jan. 1758, “aged almost 90,” therefore born about 1668-1669.
