Families of the Children of Thomas3 Washburn and Deliverance Packard

 

 

         While the names of the children of Thomas Washburn and Deliverance Packard are well established by the will of their father, the grandchildren of Thomas and Deliverance are much more difficult to ascertain with any degree of certainty, particularly those of eldest son Thomas Washburn (Jr.), who married Elizabeth Howland. Likewise, the names of spouses for the grandchildren of Thomas and Deliverance are not all known at this point.

(116.) Hepzibah4 Washburn, second daughter of (57) Thomas3 Washburn, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, in ca. Dec. 1683,[29] married John Hutchinson (Jr.), son of John and Hannah (Root) Hutchinson, of Lebanon, CT,[30] on 29 Oct. 1708 in Bridgewater.[31] He was born supposedly on 21 Feb. 1684 in Northampton, Massachusetts Colony,[32] a grandson of Ralph and Alice (___) (Bennett) Hutchinson,[33] and of Joseph and Hannah (Haynes) Root,[34] and they lived in Lebanon and Salisbury, New London Co., CT.

         John Hutchinson (Jr.) died on 9 Feb. 1727 in Lebanon, aged 42 years,[35] but no probate records were found for him. Hepzibah (Washburn) Hutchinson died testate on 26 Oct. 1777 in Salisbury, CT, aged 93 years, 10 months.[36] Her will was dated 28 Apr. 1770, and probated 28 Jan. 1778, and she named her sons Thomas and John Hutchinson, grandchild Hezekiah, son of son Timothy Hutchinson, deceased, and grandchildren Timothy, Joshua, Margaret and Hepzibah, children of daughter Margaret Allen, deceased.

(118.) Thomas4 Washburn (Jr.), second son of (57) Thomas3 Washburn, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, in say 1688, called “second son” in his father’s will in 1730, married Elizabeth4 Howland, daughter of James3 and Mary (Lothrop) Howland, of Barnstable, MA,[50] on 13 Apr. 1721 in Kingston, MA.[51] She was born on 2 Dec. 1704 in Plymouth,[52] a granddaughter of Joseph2 and Elizabeth (Southworth) Howland,[53] of Plymouth, and a great-granddaughter of John1 Howland, of the “Mayflower.”

         Thomas and Elizabeth Washburn lived initially in Bridgewater, then moved to North Yarmouth, York Co., ME, before 1729, where he was a blacksmith. On 6 Nov. 1721 his cousin, Ephraim Washburn, of Plimton, bound himself to Thomas Washburne Jr., of Bridgewater, blacksmith, to learn the trade of a blacksmith, until 20 Mar. 1722/3. Part of the agreement was that Thomas Washburn was to find and provide Ephraim with “Meat, Drink, Cloathing, and Lodging and at the End of his Apprenticeship find him two Compleat Suits of Apparell, one for Common and the other for Special Wear, and allow him a Vice, Bickhorn, Tongs, Hammers, and Sledge and Buttress and Pincers fit for his Work,” but Ephraim filed suit against his cousin Thomas in Mar. 1723/4, for not finding and allowing the “Suit of Cloathing for Special Wear and the said Bickhorn, Tongs, Hammers, Sledge, and Pincers.” Thomas did not show up in court, though, so Ephraim was awarded £12 plus court costs by default.[54] In Sept. 1723 Thomas Croade, of Plimpton, shopkeeper, sued Thomas Washburne Jr., of Bridgewater, blacksmith, for payment for an anvil, which he won judgment on.[55] In Dec. 1726 Sarah Little, of Kingston, Inholder and administratrix on the estate of Charles Little, Gentleman, sued Thomas Washburne Jr., of Bridgewater, blacksmith, over a £50 bond dated 9 Jan. 1723/4.[56] On 24 Dec. 1729 Thomas Washbourne of North Yarmouth, blacksmith, sold half of a 10-acre parcel of land in York County to George Monke.[57] Thomas Washburn and wife Elizabeth joined the church in North Yarmouth on 21 May 1732, but they removed before 1736.[58] In 1739 Thomas Washburn was living in Brunswick, ME, where he was a signer on the petition for incorporation of the town that year, and enlisted on a military expedition in 1742.[59] No probate or death records were found for Thomas Washburn in Maine.

         Thomas Washburn (Jr.) and Elizabeth Howland had children:[60]

+       391     i   Mary5 Washburn, born on 25 May 1722 in Bridgewater,[61] married Jabez King on 12 Apr. 1753 in Bridgewater.[62] (Continued in Washburn Fifth Generation.)

         392     ii   Elizabeth5 “Bettie” Washburn, born on 22 Mar. 1723/4 in Bridge­water,[63] married Benjamin York (Jr.), supposedly son of Benjamin and Mary (Giddings) York,[64] on 13 Feb. 1751/2 in North Yarmouth or Cumberland, ME.[65] He was born supposedly on 30 Dec. 1710 in Gloucester, Essex Co., MA.[66] She supposedly died in 1757,[67] and he may have moved to Deer Isle, Hancock Co., ME, where he was living in the 1790 federal census.[68] He supposedly died on 22 May 1818 in Sedgwick, ME.[69] Elizabeth (Washburn) York had at least one son:

a. Benjamin York (3rd), born in 1753 in Falmouth, MA, married Abigail Reed,[70] and they were probably living in Sullivan, Hancock Co., ME, in the 1790 federal census.[71]

b. (Possibly two daughters)[72]

+       393    iii   Timothy5 Washburn, born, say 1726, baptized on 29 Aug. 1731 in North Yarmouth, ME,[73] married Sarah Miller, daughter of James and Margaret Miller, in say 1746. (Continued in Washburn Fifth Generation.)

         394    iv   Thomas Washburn (3rd), born, say 1728, baptized on 29 Aug. 1731 in North Yarmouth, ME,[74] marriage not found. He may have been the Thomas “Wesbon” of Brunswick, ME, captured by Indians in 1748 and taken to Canada,[75] no further record.

                   v   (Possibly others)[76]

 

 

(120.) Timothy4 Washburn, youngest son of (57) Thomas3 Washburn, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, MA, in say 1694, married Hannah (___), in ca. 1720,[77] and they moved from Bridgewater to Coventry, CT, after 1725, where he was a tanner, then to Bolton, CT, by 1734. She was baptized, as an adult, with her children, on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[78] and her surname has not yet been discovered.

         On 23 Jan. 1713/14 Nathaniel Washburn, of Lebanon, CT, sold 100 acres of land in Lebanon to his brother Timothy Washburn, of Bridgewater, MA.[79] On 30 July 1720 Ebenezer Washburn, of Bridgewater, sold to Timothy Washburn, of Bridgewater, tanner, upland and meadow on the east side of the Satucket River near the Middleborough line that had been deeded to him by Joseph Washburn, of Plympton.[80] In March 1723/4 Charles Little, of Plymouth, sued Timothy Washburne, of Bridgewater, husbandman, over a bond of £13.[81]

         It appears Timothy Washburn may have moved from Bolton, CT, to Lebanon, CT, but it is not certain. No death or probate records have yet been found for Timothy or Hannah Washburn in Connecticut, and he was not a head of household in Connecticut in the 1790 federal census.

         Timothy and Hannah Washburn had children:[82]

+       395     i   Timothy5 Washburn (Jr.), born on 26 Oct. 1721 in Bridgewater,[83] baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[84] married Kezia Guild,[85] daughter of Israel and Sarah (George) Guild,[86] in ca. 1746.[87] (Continued in Washburn Fifth Generation.)

+       396     ii   Hannah5 Washburn, born on 28 Feb. 1723/4 in Bridgewater,[88] baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[89] probably married John Finney (Jr.), son of John and Ann (Toogood) Finney,[90] of Lebanon, CT, on 14 June 1744 in Lebanon.[91] (Continued in Washburn Fifth Generation.)

         397    iii   Mary5 Washburn, born on 15 Oct. 1725 in Bridgewater,[92] baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[93] possibly the Mary Washburn who married (486) Joseph5 Washburn, son of (133) Ebenezer4 and Patience (Miles) Washburn, of New Milford, CT,[94] on 14 May 1752 in Sharon, Litchfield Co., CT.[95] He was born on 16 May 1727 in New Milford,[96] and they supposedly lived in Kent, Litchfield Co., CT, but he was not a head of household in Kent, CT, in the 1790 federal census. (To be continued in Washburn Fifth Generation with the families of the children of Ebenezer Washburn and Patience Miles.)

         398    iv   Thomas Washburn, born say 1727 in CT, baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[97] marriage not found.

+       399    v   Martha5 Washburn, born say 1729 in CT, baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[98] married Jabez Wright, son of James and Sarah (Guild) Wright, of Lebanon,[99] New London Co., CT, on 4 June 1752 in Lebanon.[100] (Continued in Washburn Fifth Generation.)

         400    vi   Betty Washburn, born say 1731 in CT, baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[101] marriage not found.

         401    vii   Ephraim Washburn, born say 1733 in CT, baptized on 29 Sept. 1734 in Bolton, CT,[102] marriage not found.

 

 

(121.) Deliverance4 Washburn, youngest daughter of (57) Thomas3 Washburn, (43) John2 (5th), (28) John1 (4th); born in Bridgewater, MA, in say 1697, married Ephraim Jennings, son of Rich­ard and Mary (Bassett) Jennings, of South Bridgewater,[103] on 18 Feb. 1718/19 in Bridgewater.[104] He was born ca. 1697 in Bridgewater, a grandson of Joseph and Mary (Lapham) Bassett.[105] The will of Richard Jennings, of Bridgewater, dated 27 Apr. 1739, mentioned a son Ephraim, among others.[106]

         Ephraim and Deliverance Jennings lived in Bridgewater, at least through 1737. In 1737 he was a witness to the will of John Ripley, of Bridgewater, and gave his oath at the proving of the will on 18 May 1737.[107] On 19 Apr. 1742 Ephraim and Deliverance Jennings, of Bridgewater, sold land in South Bridgewater to Benjamin Price,[108] and they may have moved out of Bridgewater after that. No death or probate records were found for either of them in Plymouth County.

         Deliverance Washburn and Ephraim Jennings had children:[109]

         402      i   Mary Jennings, born on 1 Jan. 1719/20 in Bridgewater,[110] marriage not found.
