John Trowbridge, herein supposed to have been father of Thomas, was the only son and heir of Thomas the elder, a rich merchant of Taunton, whose benefactions and will (drawn 6 July, 1619, proved 6 May, 1620) are given fully in T.F. He was baptized at Taunton on 25 March, 1570 [T.F.J, and was probably married not far from 1595. no record appearing at Taunton either of his marriage or of the baptism of his eldest son Thomas. The baptisms of eight other children are recorded there in regular order, beginning with 8 February, 1598/9. That Thomas was probably John's son and heir is shown by the broad fact that he succeeded John as the chief Trowbridge of Taunton, just as John had succeeded his father; and more particularly by the otherwise unaccountable coincidences between the names of their sons. John's four sons were, in order, Thomas, after his father, John, after himself, William, and James. Thomas s four sons, in order, were John, after his father, Thomas, after himself, William, and James.

On the same day, John was admitted to a life interest in his father's properties at Obridge and Staplegrove and Pyrland, partly occupied by Thomas' wife Johane (flee Hutchings).

John married 2 Alice BEVYS on 30 Aug 1595 in St Mary Arches, Exeter, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

The father of this family, "the Worshipful Mr. John Marshall," was Bailiff of Exeter in 1601, Sheriff in 1609, and Mayor in 1615, retaining afterwards the position of Alderman [Izacke]. His will was proved by his widow Alice, 17 September, 1624 [P.C.C., 74 Byrde]. "In the Name of God Amen. I John Marshall Esquire one of the Aldermen of the City of Exeter make this my last will and testament the 8th of August 1624. First I will that my debts being paid and my funeral expenses discharged the residue of all my goods and chattels shall accordizii~ to the custom of the said city of Exeter be divided into three equal parts. I give one portion thereof to my wife. I give one other portion thereof among my three Sons and two daughters, that is to say James Marshall, John Marshall, Richard Marshall, Elizabeth Marshall and Susan Marshall. Out of the third portion I give the following legacies, viz., to my son James Marshall so much as shall with the legacy given him by his cousin John Marshall deceased make up £300. To my sons John Marshall and Richard Marshall so much as shall with the legacies given them by their cousin John Marshall deceased make up £300 each.

Item 1 give to .Jane my servant 20s. Item I give to Mary Wall 40s. Item I give to the poor of the said City of Exeter £5, whereof 20s. to the poor of St. Mary Arches parish. Item I give to my said wife the house wherein I now dwell to bold during the term of her life, the remainder thereof to my son James Marshall and his heirs for ever. Item I give my lands and tenements in the parish of Northtowne, called Eastercombe, Westercombe and Luckerton, with the rents thereof to my said wife during her life, the remainder to my said son James and his heirs for ever. Item I give all my estate and interest of the house wherein Mr. Joseph Trowbridge merchant now dwelleth to my son John Marshall and his heirs forever, provided my wife shall have the issues thereof during her life, Item I give all my estate and interest in the house wherein Master William Martin merchant now dwelleth to my son Richard and his heirs forever, provided my said wife shall have the profits thereof during her life. Item I give my house wherein Andrew Quashe merchant now dwelleth in the parish of St. Petrockes within the said City of Exeter, and also my tenements without Soutbgate in the parish of the Holy Trinity to my friend .John Gupwill Esquire, now Mayor of the said City. and Peter Bevis Esquire my brother in law, provided they sell the said tenements as soon as convenient, the said money to be divided into three equal parts, one part to come to my said wife and the other two parts to be divided equally among my said five children. Item I give to my friends John Gupwill, Peter Bevis and Nicholas Mercer of Exeter merchant, all my tenements in Bampton and my whole estate in the rectory of Bampton in Co. Devon to them and their heirs for ever [?]. Item I give all the rest of my goods and chattels to my said wife, whom I make sole executrix of this my last will. I constitute the said John Gupwill and Peter Bevis overseers of the same and give to each of them 20s. for their pains. lThneaseg: John Gupwill, Peter Bevis, Nicholas Mercer, Edward Martiue, John Trowte." The transcriber has obviously modernized the spelling.

"Memorandum that Richard Marshall of the city of Exeter merchant did on the 4th of June 1635 make and declare his last will as follows. First, he gave to his sister Trobridge £100. To the poor £50, to be distributed at the pleasure of his brother James Marshall. All the rest of his goods to be divided between his brother and his sisters." [P.C.C., 88 Sadler, proved 8 August, 1635.]

That before her marriage Elizabeth was preferred to her sisters, or at any rate to her unmarried sister, is shown by her father's will; and that after her marriage she was preferred by her mother to her married sisters, and by her brother to all his relatives, is shown by their wills. It is to be inferred that she was kind and helpful by nature. The cousin John who bad made bequests to them was buried at St. Mary Arches [R. M. A.], 23 May, 1622. In his will [E. P.], made in Exeter, he named a brother Robert and a cousin John, besides leaving much to the children of his uncle John Marshall the Alderman.

Alice BEVYS [Parents] 1 was born on 7 Jun 1572 in St Mary Arches, Exeter, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. She died on 7 Jan 1630/1631 in Exeter, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. She was buried 2 on 13 Jan 1630/1631 in Exeter, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. Alice married 3 John MARSHALL on 30 Aug 1595 in St Mary Arches, Exeter, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

Alice Marshall of Exeter made her will 30 December, 1630, and it was proved [P.C.C., 23 St. John] on 24 February, 1630/1. it disposed of a large property, most of it going to her son James Marshall, including premises in Exeter and "messuages and tenements within the manor of Daccombe," St.. Mary Church, Devon. "Item I give to my daughter Elizabeth Trowbridge £50 awl one piece of plate to the value of £10." Among grandchildren receiving £5 each were named John and Elizabeth Trowbridge. Other relatives named were brothers Richard and Peter Beavis; sister-in-law Susanna Beavis; four sons of Peter Beavis; Alice Beavis, daughter of brother Nicholas deceased; "mother-in-law Mistress Jane Martyn"; and, in particular, her children, Richard Marshall, Jane Guide, Alice Harris, and Susan Marshall. Susan, for example, was to receive, when of age, enough to make tip £800, including what came to her from her father, cousin John, and brother John. This will shows that the following entries [RM.A.] refer to Elizabeth Trowbridge's family, though her own name does not appear among them:

Married, 30 August, 1595, John Marshall and Alice Bevys.
Baptized, children of John Marshall,
29 June, 1598, Jane (buried 30 May, 1600).

The spelling of the name Bevys was changed to Beavis by Peter Bevys, between 1624 and 1630. In 1624 he signed Bevis as witness to Marshall s will in 1630 Beavis as witness to Mrs. Marshall's. After 1630, all appear to have spelled it Beavis; before 1624, Bevys. Peter's baptismal record and marriage license were for Bevys, as were all other observed records in which the name appears before 1624.

That the mother of Elizabeth Marshall, Alice Bevys, was daughter of Richard Bevys. who died while Mayor of Exeter, in 1602 [Izacke], is shown not only by the Marshall pedigree, but also by the names of her brothers given in her will, Peter Bevys and Richard Bevys, who were respectively baptized [R. M. A.] as sons of Richard Bevys, on 16 August, 1590, and 9 March, 1578/9. Peter was much the more active and prominent, and became [Lyson] lord of the manor of Bishop s Chat, near Exeter. "This family," says Lyson. under the title Beavis of Clist, p. clxxiii, "is traced in Devonshire to the reign of Henry IV." He gives the arms as azure, 3 close helmets argent. garnished or; crest, a pheon argent.

NOTES ON THE LAMBERTON FAMILY

CAPT. GEORGE  LAMBERTON(Elizabeth's father), one of the merchant gentlemen who founded the Colony of New Haven, came from London. He is called of the parish of St. Mary's Whitechapel when, on 6 Jan. 1628/9, he married MARGARET LEWE& (REGISTER, vol. 61, P. 189). Some account of him and of his family is given in The Converse Family, 1905, vol. 2, pp. 681. et seq. He was lost in 1646 on board the "great ship" he commanded, whose fate is the theme of Longfellow's poem, "The Phantom Ship." In the following year his widow, Margaret, married Deputy-Governor Stephen Goodyear.
Erroneous statements have been made concerning his family, one being that Mary, first wife of Lieut.-Gov. James is o , was his daughter. This error is based on a passage from the trial of Mrs Godman for witchcraft in 1653, which states that Mrs. Godman "hath much inquired upon the time of Mrs Bishops delivery of her children, and would speake of it so Mris Goodyeare and her daughters marveled how she could know, and Hannah Lamberton one time told her mother that Mr Godman kept her sisters count." It is evident that the Mrs. Bishop of the record was sister either of Hannah Lamberton or of her mother, Margaret (Lewen) (Lamberton) Goodyear, but she may have been Patience, wife of Henry Bishop (brother of James), instead of Mary, wife of James. At all events, it is certain that Mary Bishop was not a daughter of George Lamberton, as she left surviving issue who did not share in the Lamberton estate.
On 20 Oct. 1658 "Ma Goodyeare & her children by Mr. Lamberton prsenting themselves before the court, she desired that ye portions wch remaine vnpaid dew to the children, might be set out by ye Court, vpon which p position it was demanded of Wilm Trowbridge, ye husband to Elizabeth Lamberton, what he had received of Mr Goodyeare. .. . Hannah & Hope Lamberton, being at age, were appointed to receive their portions, woh they desired might be delivered to their mother. . . . Deliverance, who is to have a double portion, & Mercy, Desire, and Obedience, chose their mother for their guardian."


John JACKSON [Parents] 1 was christened 2 on 6 Jun 1603 in St Dunstan's, Stepney, Middlesex, England, United Kingdom. He died 3, 4 on 30 Jan 1674/1675 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. John married 5 Unknown in BY 1639.

Other marriages:
, Margaret

JOHN JACKSON

ORIGIN: Unknown.
MIGRATION: 1635 on the Blessing (on 13 July 1635, "Jo[hn] Jackson," fisherman, aged 40, "Margaret Jackson," aged 36, and "John Jackson," aged 2, were enrolled at London as passengers for New England on the Blessing [Hotten 108]).
FIRST RESIDENCE: Salem.
OCCUPATION: Mariner. On about 21 June 1637, Roger Williams reported the presence of several ships in Narragansett Bay, including "the other whereof _____ Jackson of Salem is master" [WP 3:434].

COMMENTS: Pope identified this immigrant with the man of the same name who lived in Cambridge [Pope 254], but this cannot be correct. The family description in the passenger list matches exactly that of the Salem family. Also, this immigrant sailed with the family of Richard Hollingsworth, who also settled in Salem, and with whom the Jackson family had continued association [Hotten 108; GM 2:2:380-84; TAG 78:241-44; EQC 1:391].
In October 1636, Gov. John Winthrop reported that "two houses were burnt, and all the goods in them to a great value; ... the other one Jackson of Salem, both professors" [WJ 1:238-39].
In his will, John Jackson made a bequest to "Margaret Neve," without stating a relationship. She came to New England in 1637 from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk [Hotten 293]. Barbara MacAllan has recently demonstrated that William Goose and his wife Mary were also from Great Yarmouth, and were named in the same ecclesiastical visitation record as Margaret Neave [NEHGR 154:215-17].

Deacon John Jackson was baptised in the Parish of Stepney, London June 6, 1602; the first settler of Canah Village, who remained and died in it. He brought a good estate with him from England. He bought a dwelling house and eighteen acres of land, of Miles Ives of Wat., in 1639. This estate was situated on the Rox. road, very near the line which now divides Newton from Brighton. He took the Freeman's oath, in 1641,--was one of the first deacons of the church, --gave one acre of land for the Church and burial place upon which the forst M.H. was erected, in 1660, , and which now the oldest part of the Centre Cemetery. He was the s. of Christopher Jackson of London, who was buried on the 5th of Dec. 1633. He had in this country, by two wives, five sons and ten daughters, and at the time of his decease, about fifty grandchildren. There may have been and probably were some transient dwellers in the Villiage before he came, but they were not known to the record, and left no descendants there. The coming of John Jackson, in 1639, may properly be considered the first settlement of Newton. He d. Jan 30, 1674-5. Counting from the record of his baptism, in England, his age was 73. How old he was when baptised is uncertain. He left an estate, valued at 1,230 pounds. His widow, Margaret died Aug.28 1684 (Gravestone). She could not therefore have been the other of his son John who was born in 1639. His old mansion house was pulled down about 1800. ...His estate was settled by agreement, amoug the survivng children in Dec 1676. ....He had labored long and earnestly, by petitioning the General Court and otherwise, to have Cambridge Village erected into an independent town, but did not live to see it acccomplished.

"Jackson was a magistrate and large landholder, for seventeen years Deputy to the General Court, a surveyor of land, husband to the widow of Chelsea's first ministor, ancestor of sixty grandchildren, and a slaveholder withal, leaving at his death two male slaves. This notable personage was thus characterized in "The Wonder-working Providence of Sion's Savior in New England": "He could not endure to see the truth of Christ trampled under foot by the erroneous party."
