The present volume is, in the truest sense, a joint production, repre- 
senting as it does the labors of three generations of American Sanborns. 
I have been unable to ascertain who first collected genealogical data for the 
family history, but in all probability the title of Father of the Sanborn Gen- 
ealogy properly belongs to Dr. Nathan Sanborn (521), whose biography 
appears on page 272, of this volume. 

The first concerted et^brt to compile a family history was the organiza- 
tion, at IManchester, N. H., on October 5, 1S53, of the Sanborn Genealog- 
ical Association, the proceedings being as follows: 

At a meeting of those who bear the name of Sanborn, held at the City Hall. .Manchester, 
N. H., October 5, 1S53, 2 o'clock p. m.. 

Voted, That Dr. Nathan Sanborn act as chairman, and Dr. Eastman Sanborn as secretary. 
Voted, That it is expedient to form an association for the purpose of collecting, preserving 
and diiTusing information respecting those who bear the name of Sanborn. 

Voted, A committee of three, appointed by the Chair, shall draft a constitution and nom- 
inate officers. This committee, composed of E. D. Sanborn, Eastman Sanborn, and John 
D. Sanborn, reported a constitution, which was accepted, and nominated for peimanent 
officers : 

President — Dyer H. Sanborn. 
Vice-President — B. W. Sanborn. 
Recording Secretary — Nathan Sanborn. 
Corresponding Secretary — Eastman Sanborn. 
Treasurer — Edwin D. Sanborn. 

These nominations were confirmed. 


Article i. This association shall be denominated the Sanborn Genealogical Association. 

Art. 2. The object of the association shall be to collect, preserve, and diffuse information 
respecting every family or individual in this or any other state and who may have borne the 
name of Sanborn, or may have been connected by consanguinity or aflinity with any person 
who has borne that name. 

Art. 3. The officers of the association shall be a president, vice-president, a correspond- 
ing and recording secretary, and a treasurer, who shall be ex officio a board of directors to 
transact the business of the society. 

Art. 4. The association shall meet as often as the directors shall deem it expedient, pro- 

v5 ; 'ill I 


vided only one meeting shall be held in a year, and shall be called together by order of the 
president, and published in two papers, at least, in New England. 

Art. 5. Any person may become a member by subscribing this constitution and paying into 
the treasury one dollar. ,_ ; . 

The association soon numbered a hundred and fifty members, and all 
contributed more or less valuable data for the family history. With these 
materials, and with the assistance of several well-known genealogists of 
the time, Dr. Nathan Sanborn compiled and published in the July and 
October, 1856, numbers of the New England Historic-Genealogical Reg- 
ister ^ well-arranged and fairly complete tabulation of the family pedigree, 
in nineteen pages. This, republished in pamphlet form, was one of the 
earliest American genealogies printed ; eliciting much praise for its sim- 
plicity and completeness. A copy was sent to every member of the family 
association, and the indefatigable officers of that body at once began to 
amplify the printed record. The following year the subjoined circular was 
sent to ail Sanborns whose addresses could be obtained, and it shows the 
business-like way in which the larger work was begun. 


Dear Sir : We take this method to apprise you, if not already acquainted with the fact, 
that an association of those who bear the name of Sanborn, or are by blood or aSinity con- 
nected with those of that name, has been formed for the purpose of collecting and preserv- 
ing genealogical information of their ancestry, and to solicit whatever aid you may be able to 
afford us in securing the objects of our association. The conditions of membership are the 
payment of one dollar toward the necessary expenses of the association, postage, printing, 
etc., and forwarding to the secretary the record of his own family, and those of his ancestry 
as far back as he can trace it. In return, he receives a certificate of membership and our 
genealogies as fast as we are able to print them. The services of the officers are all gratuitous. 

We have printed one edition in pamphlet form of twenty-one pages, comprising more than 
Seven hundred names, the matter of which has been at the same tim.e published in the Xroj 
England Historic and Genealogical Register, Vol. X. We propose to print, as soon as the 
amount of material and the state of our funds will admit, a second edition, containing at least 
double the amount of genealogical matter embraced in the first. 

The first five generations, it is believed, are nearly complete in our first edition, making all 
reasonable allowance for mistakes in transcribing and printing. The task, thus far, was ren- 
dered comparatively easy by the full and legible records kept by the town and church of- 
Hampton; that is, while the descendants of John and William Sanborn rem.ained ^^•itnin the 
limits of that town, as then bounded. But when the inhabitants of the older towns, for want of 
room, began to emigrate to newer settlements, where meagre records mark their course, their 
footprints are not so readily traced, and we are compelled to rely on the reminiscences of the 
aged among the living, or detached records of families that have been transmitted from par- 
ents to children on a blank leaf in the old time-worn but venerated family Bible. On the 


•li' ^iii 


interest manifested by the living of our race in this enterprise of rescuing from oblivion a 
knowledge of their ancestry, and their promptituae in acting on it, will depend its ultimate 

At a meeing of tlie association at Concord, October 9, 1856, a large committee was appointed, 
to be addressed through a circular from the Secretary and solicited to aid him with all the 
materials within the reach of any reasonable effort, for this second edition. We want names, 
dates of birth, marriage, and death, and, if practicable, residence and occupation (taking 
particular care that letters and figures be perfectly legible). 

We would like to embellish our book with a few portraits, and offer to any, who will be at 
the e.xpense of a suitable plate, its insertion in the proper place. 

We are anxious this edition should be as perfect as possible, as it will probably be the 
last issued by the present acting members of the association. If mistakes are noticed in our 
last (and we know it abounds in them), we shall be happy to have them pointed but, and 
will cheerfully correct them in our next. 

As a member of this committee, you are solicited to render the secretary all the aid in your 
power, by procuring funds and records. Ifany to whom this is sent have not received our 
pamphlet, they may be supplied by application to the secretary. If you know any one of our 
name whom you v/ould judge a suitable assistant in this work, please address him, or notify 

the secretary that he may do so. 

Yours truly, 

Nathan S.v.nborn, 

Recording Secretary. 
Henniker, N. H., April 6, 1857. 

In 1858, Dr. Nathan Sanborn died, and his material was put into the 
hands of D\'er II. Sanborn, president of the Sanborn Association, and as 
untiring a worker as his predecessor. He sent other circulars to the San- 
born family and instituted a personal correspondence with nearly a thou- 
sand of the name. No one who has not gone through the papers which 
he left can form any idea of the immensity of his work. All his letters 
were written with his own hand, and after he had obtained the family data 
from a correspondent, he re-wrote it himself, and forwarded it to the sender 
to be corrected and returned. From this correspondence he then tabulated 
a record of the entire family, forming about three hundred pages of closely- 
written manuscript on foolscap paper. 

The completion of this record would have taken many years, and Dyer 
Sanborn died in 1S71, with much uncompleted, and with his courage some- 
what dampened by the unending character of his task. His papers were 
in the possession of the widow of his son until a few years ago, when they 
were turned over by her to Mr. Thomas L. Sanborn, a son of Dr. Nathan 
Sanborn. By him they were fil6d away in neat order, but no further 
attempt was made to publish the family history. 

More than twelve years ago, I turned my attention to the Sanborn gen- 



ealogy, investigating particularly the English origin of our family, which 
had never received much attention. In the Genealogical Register for 
July, 18S5, I published a short account of the English Sambornes, cor- 
recting the many errors in our American pamphlets and articles. In this 
article, which was afterwards issued in pamphlet form, I collected the 
facts which were obtainable from printed records in this country and Eng- 
land, but, of course, was unable to search English records. In 1SS7, 
Gen. John B. Sanborn, of St. Paul, reprinted the pamphlet genealogy 
and my article in book form, adding thereto a most interesting account 
of his branch and of his own life. 

About this time. Rev. Moses Runnels, of Sanbornton, published a very 
complete and admirable history of that town, and embodied in the gen- 
ealogies an exhaustive record of the Sanbornton Sanborns, their branches 
and descents. It is to be regretted that he accepted the erroneous coat-of- 
arms which ?vlr. S. G. Drake had engraved for the Register article, and 
which was also included in the pamphlet genealogy. 

Five years ago, I began to think of publishing the family history, and 
collected and tabulated the genealogies mentioned above, and m.anv more 
extracted from town histories, etc. At this time, I had not seen the Dr. 
Nathan Sanborn collections, and while my data were very copious, thcv 
were incomplete in the middle generations. ]My especial interest was .still 
to tind the English home of our race, and I had elaborated mv records on 
that subject, when, in the spring of 1895, I had the long-wished-for oppor- 
tunity to search English records in England. The results of that investiga- 
tion were very fortunate and completely upset the Samborne lines given 
in the printed and manuscript pedigrees of the name in England. I was 
able to trace a connected pedigree from Nicholas Samborne of 1330 to the 
present day. 

B}' the kindness of the editor of the Granite Monthl\\ I was able to 
publish my researches in that magazine, and to reprint them in pamphlet 
form. A year later, I printed m}- "Samborne Ancestry'" in the English 
Genealogist, the authority on such subjects on that side of the water. In 
spite of a protracted search, since pursued by friendlv genealogists abroad, 
I have been unable to find the exact connectino" link between the two con- 
tinl^nts, although my theoretical connection has been accepted as undenia- 
ble circumstantial evidence. 

From this time, I devoted my attention to the American line, and printed 
my "First Sambornes of Hampton. N. H.," in the Register (or January, 
1897. A few months later, I began the great work in earnest, and sent 

fAMH?"''! J/ ''UIOT^JM 


out blanks to two thousand San>orns in this country. The resuUs have 
been very favorable. I have traced out several new lines, and am able at 
last to present as complete a tamily history, I venture to say, as any such 
American family has ever possessed. 

In announcing this result, I do not claim more than my share of what- 
ever credit is due. Had it not been for the researches of Dr. Nathan 
Sanborn and Dyer H. Sanborn, whose papers were very kindly placed at 
my disposal by Mr. Thomas L. Sanborn, this volume would have been 
decidedl3' incomplete. The assistance of my father, Mr. F. B. Sanborn, 
and the researches made in 1S56 by my uncle. Dr. Charles H. Sanborn, 
have been invaluable, and my kinsmen and kinswomen have been very 
kind In furnishing data. I must particularly acknowledge the kindness of 
Miss Katherine L. Morrill of Exeter, N. H., who has transcribed many 
earl}-- deeds of great interest. 

Let m.e also take this opportunity of expressing my sincere apprecia- 
tion of the "uniform kindness, courtesy, and liberality of my kinsmen and 
friends and especially of Gen. John B. wSanborn and ^vlr. Sherburn San- 
born, who have most substantially aided in obtaining the fruits ot English 
research. And I thank all the friends, on both sides of the Atlantic, who 
have so generously aided the work with information and good counsel. 
Especially is an acknowledgment due to Mr. W. P. W. Phillimore of Lon- 
don, and to another English friend, who have edited the English part of this

The different chapters of this volume are arranged, as far as possible, in 
chronological order. First comes a treatise on the family name and arms. 
Then, the English pedigree, arranged in the English manner, by branches. 
Next, the probable connection with the American Sanborns. Next, an 
account of Rev. Stephen Bachiler, and a chapter illustrative of early Hamp- 
ton customs. Then follows the history of the American famil}', and then an 
index of Revolutionary Sanborns. The last chapter of the book, contrib- 
uted by Frank B. Sanborn of Concord, Mass., gives the local color, and 
shows New Hampshire life in this and the last century. 

The arrangrement of the American Sanborns is intended to be a simole 
numerical cross-reterence. Where the family record is brought down to 
the present day, each head of a family is given a consecutive number. To 
trace a line down, then, refer to the number preceding the Christian name. 
To trace a line back, refer to the number in parentheses after the Christian 
name. Thus, on page i6i, Matthew Nealley Sanborn is number 497 ; his 
record is given on page 261. On page 261, we find him described as 
497. Capt. Matthew Nealley (18S) Sanborn. The number (188) here 
given is the number designating Captain Sanborn's father, whose record we 
find on page 161.

A Prefatory Note by the Editor. 

The delay in publication of the Sanborn Genealogy has resulted in a 
more complete volume, both as regards the English and American parts. 
New clews recently found as to the English home of the American Sanborns 
led me to hope that before the book was issued explicit proof could be dis- 
covered. With this idea in mind, I instituted another exhaustive search of 
English records. Search has now been made through tiie Registers of 
the older London parishes, through new tiles of wills at Somerset House 
and elsewhere ; and a most thorough and minute examination of the 
Municipal Records of Andover, Hampshire. 

It was a disappointment in a sense, and yet not in another, that nothing 
giving exact proof as to the home of the first Sambornes of America came to 
li<:ht after this effort. Circumstantial evidence leaves no reasonable doubt 
that the father of yokn, William, and Stcpheii Sarnborne of Hampton zvas 
one of the Haynpshire Sambornes, descended from JVicholas cf Mafledur- 
ham. In mv opinion his marriage and the baptism of his children were per- 
formed by Stephen Bachiler, and the records thereof were destroyed when 
Bachiler's library was burned, about 1645. 


' The name of SAMBORNE or SANBORN, with its different variations, 
is not uncommon in xYmerica, as the size of tljis volume shows ; it is 
extremely rare in England, however, and all evidences point to there hav- 
ing been but one distinct t'amil}' of the name from ancient times. 

The earliest mention of the famih' name in England ( A. D. 1194) gives 
It as DE SANDEBURNE, but as eady as 1330 it is spelled SAr^IBORNE 
or wSAMBOURNE. Since the fourteenth century the last two forms have 
been the accepted English spelling, and the only two branches now in exist- 
ence in England use these. . ; 

Our first ancestors in America spelled their name SAMBORNE, and, 
with or without the fmal " e," so it was spelled lor several generations. 


Gradually the "m" was changed to "n," until by 1750 the name was 
spelled as at present, the final "e" being altogether dropped. The original 
and traditional pronunciation in this country was Sahmboiirn, with a 
marked accent on the first syllable. To-day the Illinois Sanburns and the 
Michigan Sandborns alone vary the accepted spelling of Sanborn in 

All American Sanborns are descended from the Hampton settlers of 
1639, except a few Germans or Swedes originally named Sandberg. etc., 
who preferred the American family name. 

Competent authorities accept as the most simple and evident deriva- 
tive, the Anglo-Saxon words, Sa)id and Burfia (a stream), evidently a 
place name, deriving its meaning from some sandy locality traversed by a 
stream. Undoubtedly the surname of Samborne is local in its origin, deriv- 
ing from some place or village of the name. Of surnames of local origin 
there are two classes : in the first the name was assumed by the bearer be- 
cause, as lord of the manor or considerable landowner, he was pre- 
eminently fp/*the place; in the second, men of humbler birth acquired a 
place name for their surname because it was their place of origin. From 
the social status of the family in mediaeval times it seems probable that 
Samborne belongs to the former class, and there are indications that it 
originates from Sambourne in Warminster, Wilts. 

There arc several places in England from which our fam.ily may have 
derived its namie. 

1. Sambourne, a division of the parish of Warminster, in Wiltshire. The 
earliest record of the familv name in En^Tland is associated with Wiltshire ; 
therefore this is probably the place from which the Sam/Dornes took their 
name. The historian of Warminster, Rev. J. J. Daniell, writes me that he 
has never been able to decide from what physical feature Sambourne took 
its name. It was a small and ancient manor, or at least possessed manorial 
privileges as early as 1307 ; and as will be seen under the history of the 
English family, was probably a manor in 1 194-5. It is now a division or 
hamlet of the parish of Warminster, and on Sambourne Hill is located the 
Union Workhouse. Warminster itself is a thriving town of Western Wilts, 
situated almost on the Somerset boundary, twenty-one miles northwest 
from Salisbur}^ and directly east of Frome, Somt., where the Samboi^iCS 
owned property in the seventeenth century. I have found no mention of 
Samborne as a t'amily name in Warminster. 

2. Sambourne Bridgp:, in the northern part of Wiltshire, is over the 
Derry Brook, in the parish of Cricklade St. Sampson, just on the edge of 

.1/. -' l;> 


Minety. As will be seen, the Wiltshire Sambornes were very early con- 
nected with North Wilts and with the Cricklade family. I have been 
unable to ascertain much about this brid<^e, or how it derived its name. In 
the "Perambulation of the Forests of Wilts " in 1300, I find mention of the 
" Bridge of Samborne," apparently between Studle^- and Lacock. 

3. Sambourxe, in the parish of Coughton, Warwick. Dugdale, in his 
'* History of Warwickshire," says, — " Of this place, having its originall 
denomination from that little brook nigh unto which it stands. I find very 
antient mention, viz : in anno DCCXIV, it being then {inter alia) given to 
the monks of Evesham by Egwin, Bishop of Worcester, upon the tounda- 
tion thereof." It is situated in the southwestern part of Warwickshire, 
near Stratford-on-Avon, and is mentioned in Domesday, spelled " Sand- 
burne." I can find no reason for believing that our family had any connec- 
tion with this place. 

4. Sandbourne, a tything of Kidderminster, the great carpet-weaving 
town of England, situated in Worcestershire, northwest from Sam.bourne 
in Warwick. This place was originally called '• Sandleburne," and I can 
find no reason for believing there was any connection with our family. 

5. Sandburx, a hamlet of the parish of Stockton-on-the-Forest in the 
North Riding of Yorkshire, a few miles north of the city of York. Mr. 
Gell, the rector of Stockton, writes m,e, — " I fear I cannot give you much 
information. I should sav it originallv derived its name from a sand-hill in 
the locality, which is now to be seen on Sandbnrn Farm ; and t'rom a little 
burn or brook, which I understand flows near to it. The whole neighbor- 
hood is of a sandy description. In Sandburn Wood is the shaft of an 
ancient cross seven feet high, which is supposed to be an ancient boundary- 
mark of the commons belouijinir to the Freemen of York." This hamlet is 
mentioned in Domesday, spelled "Sanburna," and was at that time held by 
Ralph Paganel ; later it was held by the Boltons. I can trace no connec- 
tion with the English Sambornes, except that in the somewhat mythical 
pedigree on pages 50-1 the lamily name is stated to have been " Sam- 
bueren," and all the matches given are with well-known North Country and 
Yorkshire families. 

6. SoMBOURNE in Hampshire, and Stamborne in Essex, may be m.en- 
lioned here, although I do not think there is any possible connection. 



In many instances, American genealogies have given too little attention 
to the correct use ot' heraldry. Too often has it been the aim of the com- 
piler to furnish a coat of arms or a crest, without being careful enough to 
assure himself that it can be honorably used. 

Until the present writer began, in 1SS5, to investigate the subject of Sam- 
borne heraldry, it had received scant attention in this country. In the 
pamphlet genealogy published in 1856, a coat-ot-arms and crest were 
engraved, apparently by Mr. S. G. Drake, the authority tor which was not 
cited, and for which I have been unable to find the slightest reason. It 
certainly never was a Samborne coat-of-arms, and it is impossible in 
heraldry. The crest engraved is that given in most collections of crests as 
belonging to Samborne, but which I am assured by an English Herald 
there has never been warrant tor believing really belonged to the nam^e. 
Where its use originated, I cannot say. Mr. Dyer H. Sanborn printed 
some notes in the Register for 1S57, about the English Sambornes and their 
arms, but they were full of errors. 

In fact, there is but one true Samborne coat-of-arms ; and an eminent 
authority, Dr. George W. ^larshall, LL. D., Rouge Croix Pursuivant. 
writes me it was evidently used betbre the days of grants ot arms. A 
search at the Heralds' College results in the following references : 

1. Samborne of Southcot. Berks. Quarterly (i) and (4^) [Samborne] Argent, a 
chevron, sable, between three mullets gules, pierced or. (2) [Lushill of Wilt;] Argent, a 
pale fusilly, gules, within a bordure azure, bezantee. (3) [Drew of Wilts, Berks, and 
Devon.] Ermine, a lion passant guardant, gules. No crest. This coat in 1566 was allcm-ed 
and confirmed to Thomas Samborne of Sonning, Berks, grandson of Drew Samborne of South- 
cot, who bore the quarterings as above. 

2. Samborne of Timsbury, Somt. Argent, a chevron, sable, between three mullets 
gules, pierced or. Crest, a mullet as in the arms. This coat and crest in 167c were alloz.'cd 
and conf.r/ned to Maudley Samborne of Timsbury, sixth in descent from Drew Samborne"s 
brother, Nicholas of Mapledurham. Although Nicholas Samborne had the same right to the 
Drew and Lushill quarterings as his brother, his descendants at Timsbury did not use them, 
but bore the mullet as crest, — which I assume to have been a new crest, since Sir Barnaby 
Samborne's seal, affixed, in 1590, to a document at Timsbury, shows no crest at all. 

3. Sambourne of Moulsford, Berks. The same arms as (2). Crest, a bull's head 
erased, sable, armed or, holding in the mouth three wheat-ears of the last. This coat ana 
crest were, in 1665, confiT-med and allowed to Richard Sambourne of Cholsey, Berks, a great- 
grandson of Drew Sambourne. the crest being in allusion to his descent from the Drews. 

4. Sambourne (said to be of .Moulsford, Berks, Cos. Hants, and Somt.^ The same 
arms as (2) and (3). Crest, a hand holding a sheaf of arrows, all proper. Although this crest 


is described in every heraldic dictionary as belonging to Samborne, I 
can find no authority for it at the Heralds' College. It may have been 
a late seventeenth century grant, but I doubt its authenticity. 

5. Samborne (no location). Sable (another, azure), a lion ram- 
pant, or. No crest. This coat is given in Glover's "Ordinary of 
Arms" as belonging to Sir John Samburne, and is also mentioned by 
Burke, etc., but I think in error; probably confounded (because of a 
Samborne inter-marriage in 1490 or thereabouts),. with the arms of 
'. Brocas of Beaurepaire (Sable, a lion rampant-guardant, or). This, 1 
* take it, is the coat which the Pamphlet Genealogv of 1856 still farther Arms of Sir John S.\m- 

I _ _ o. J BURNE. 

! confused bv adding five mullets to it. From Glcvers Ordinary. 

( ' ♦ . 

[ Under the rules of British heraldry, coat-armour can be borne only by 

those who deduce a straifrht line trom some ancestor of their name who bore 
it of right. If the exact connectincr link between the American and English 
families shall prove to be, as I incline to believe, through the descendants of 
the Hampshire Sambornes of the sixteenth century, then we shall be enti- 
tled to bear the ancient Samborne arms. 

It ma}' be observed here that the arms of the noble Belgian family of 
Sandberg are very similar to the English Samborne arms in device, 
though different in tincture. The noble English family of Cretins bore 
the chevron and mullets ; this family became extinct in the male line during 
the fourteenth century, and it may be the Sambornes descend from them in 
a female line. 


The Samborne ancestry has, through the writer's researches, been traced 
to a Nicholas Samborne of Wiltshire, born, about 1320.^ The pedigree 
and its proofs are given in the following pages in exfenso, because a// pre- 
viously compiled Samborne descents have contained errors which are here 

In thus attempting a detailed English pedigree, the writer hesitated to 
depend too much upon his ov.n authority, and he gratefully acknowledges 
the kindness and care of Mr. W. P. W. Phillimore, the well-known Lon- 
don genealogist, and of another English friend thoroughly versed in the 
subject, who have edited this part of the work. 

Some Early References. 

A few scattered notes of very early date should be given before begin- 
ning the connected pedigree, as they show the existence of the family name 
in Wiltshire and Somersetshire during the twelfth, thirteenth, and lourteenth 


Wiltshire.— The most ancient mention is in Wiltshire, and occurs in 
the earliest "Eyre-RoH" of the Norman kings in England, — dated in 
1 194, and published by the Pipe Roll Society. On this roll occurs the name 
of Juliana De Sandeburne, defendant in a case of novel disseisin, the 
Latin wording being as follows : 

" Assisa venit recognitura, si Juliana De Sandeburne, invitos et sine judicio disseisit Hawisiam 
et Sarram de libero tenemento suo in Sandeburne. post primam coronationem domlni Regis. 
Et Hawisia et Sarra non venientibus. Juliana teneat in pace, et Hawisia et Sarra in rnis.-ricor- 
dia Regis quia non persequuntur."' 

The case was heard in October, 1194, before the five justices for Wilt- 
shire, sitting at Wilton ; their names were, William of St. Mary's Church, 
the Abbot of ^vlalmsbury , Richard of Heriet. Ralph of Harden, and Thomas 
of Husseburne. Briefly put in English the case is a complaint that Juliana, 
lady of the Wiltshire manor of Sandeburne or Samborne, had dispossessed 
two tenants of hers, who failed to appear to prosecute, so that she was 
allowed to hold in the King's peace. This would seem to show the exis- 
tence of a manor and lord thereof at Sambourne Wilts in 1194. 

A thorough search of the Lay Subsidy Rolls for Wilts reveals the follnw- 

1-^ I Edw. Ill (1327) Trowbrigge. D. Rico. Samborn. xijd. . . 

^^^ 7 Edw. Ill (1333) " D. Rico. Saumburx. xijd. 

^ This Richard Samborne I take to have been the father of Nicholas, who 
begins the pedigree. 

On July 10, 1415, a commission issued to Joan, widow of Richard Sam- 
borne, late of Lacock, to administer the goods of the latter. This Richard 
I take to have been a son of the first Nicholas. 

So7nersetshirc. — An early reference shows a family of De Sambourne in 
Yeovil, vSomt., in the fourteenth century. As there is some evidence that 
Robert de Sambourne was connected with the Bishop of Gloucester, this 
was very likely a branch of the North Wiltshire Sambornes. 

A. D 1334. " Before John de Middleton. commissary of the lord bishop, Jcbanna de 
Samborne de Jevele (Yeovil), pro incontinentia cum domino Galfrido, rectore de Kyngston 
juxta Jevele. Ipsa personaliter et venit et ponitur se legitime". (What this last phrase signi- 
fies, I don't know, perhaps. " puts herself on trial.*") — Register of Bishop Ralph of Shrezjsdury. 

Robert Sambourne or Robert de Sambourne (sometimes spelled without the 
** u "), was a rich and prominent churchman of Somerset, probably a brother 
of Joan of Yeovil mentioned above. His birthplace and the date of his 
birth are unknov.n : but he became priest of Merriot, Somt., in 1333. and 

:; n 


priest of Kingston, near Ilminster, Somt., in 1349- He gave up these 
churches in 1362, when he became priest of the flourishing town of Yeovil, 
on the river Yeo, in the southernmost part of Somerset. lie remained priest 
of this parish until his death, but was early connected with the Cathedral of 
Wells; and in 1369 he was elected Seneschal of Wells Cathedral, being 
already Canon of Bath and Wells. His will, dated 13S2, and filed at Lam- 
beth (201 A, Courtenay) is in Latin, and briefly is as follows : 

" Body to be buried in Wells Cathedral if I happen to die in Wells ; if not, then in my 
parish church of Yeovil. For my funeral I leave j[.io. For my executors £^^,o. Remainder 
for the work of the church in Yeovil. Executors, Walter Wincalton, Canon of Bath and Wels ; 
John Tyntenull, vicar of said church ; Stephen Blancombe, capellanus ; Hugh King, my valet.*' 

Probate granted at Maghtfeldt, Sept. 12, 1382. Acquittance of executors 
given at Lambeth. November, 13S2, when he is called Canon of Bath and 
Wells, and Rector of Ivele. The Public Records during the reign of 
Edward HI contain frequent reference to Robert de Sambourne, who 
received for his church many lands and bequests. 


I. Nicholas Samborne, born about 1320. Probably held the fourth 
part of a knight's tee in Biddestone St. Nicholas, Wilts, since we lind there 
in 1358 a " Nicholas de Biddestone." See a more detailed account of this 
fee under Nicholas (II). With Hugo de la Lynde, Nicholaus Sambourne 
represented Bath City at the Parliament held at Westminster, Nov. 3. 1391. 
An obit was held annually on October i6th at the Priory of Kington St. 
Mary, Wilts, tor the memory of Nicholas Samborne and Nicholas his son, 
benefactors of tiie Priory. 

The son and heir of Nicholas Samborne was Nicholas 11, of whom next. 

II. Nicholas Samborne, born about 1350. From 1390 to 1404. says 
Mr. Poulett-Scrope in his " History of Castle Combe,"' Nicholas Samborne 
held a part of the manor of Biddestone St. Nicholas, Wilts, the tburth part 
ot a knight's fee. This fee, a part of the manor of Castle Combe, was in 
1309 bought by Lord Badlesmere, and descended to his daughter, Margaret, 
wife of Sir John Tiptoft. Their son. Sir Robert Tiptoft, dying without heir 
male, in 1372, the premises were divided among four coheiresses, the Bid- 
destone lands probablv passing to Millicent, wite of Sir John Fastolf , with 
ihe manor of Castle Combe. Fastolf, the •' Sir John Falstafle " of Shakes- 
perire, v/as a renowned Captain in the French wars, and is buried in Castle 
Combe Church. Nicholas Samborne held Biddestone under the Lords of 


Castle Combe, and, as we have seen, his father probably did before him. 
Biddestone, whose location will be seen on the map, is a small village of 
two parishes, both now under the charge of Rev. Mr. Johnson, who sent 
the view of St. Nicholas Ciiurch which is here engraved. 

At the Parliament held at Westminster, Januarv 27, 1393-4, " Nicholaus 
Samborn, junior," with Hugo de la Lynde, represented Chippenham 
Borough ; and a year later we tind " Nicholaus Samborn iunior " representing 
Malmesbury Borough with Thomas Froud. In 1395 " Nicholas Samborne 
junior" bought from Walter Hertland and John Perham land in Worlon, 
Potterne, llurst, Merston, Fydington, and Bishop's Lavington. These ham- 
lets and villages are a mile or so from Biddestone. In 1401, still called 
junior, he bought from Thomas Bonde and Alice his wife, lands in Malmes- 
bury, Burton, and Thornhill. In 1403 he bought from his nephew, Wil- 
liam Sybille, one third of the manor of Lusteshull, Wilts, and Sir Thomas 
Phillipps quotes a license of 1409 to Nicholas Sambury (^s/c) Jr., and Kath- 
arine his wife, of Fernham and Lusteshull, to erect an oratory. 

Katherine, the wife of Nicholas Saniborne, was the youngest daughter 
and co-heir of Sir John Lushill or De Lusteshull ; a detailed account of her 
ancestry is given on the next page. This intermarriage with the Lushills, 
who were connected with or dependent upon the House of Lancaster, was 
probably the means of advancing the Sambornes into a better position. 
We find that in the first years of the reign of Henry IV the Sarnborne pos- 
sessions included the manors of Fernham, Berks, and Lushill, Wilts. 
FERNHAiM is a parish near Faringdon, Berks, in the Vale of Vvliite Horse, 
which the late Thomas Hughes has made so familiar. I have found noth- 
ing of note concerning it, and my friend. Rev. P. H. Ditchfield, editor of 
the Berks Arcruvological Mao^azinc^ writes me there are no ancient build- 
ings there. How Nicholas Samborne obtained Fernham manor, I cannot 
say. LUSHILL manor was inherited by his wife in part, and the other part 
purchased from her sister's son in 1403. Lushill is now a tything of Castle 
Eaton, and the present ov/ner, Mr. John Archer, has not been able to give 
me any historical data about it. 

The next Samborne, son and heir of Nicholas, I have not been able to 
locate by Christian name. He is Samborne III, of whom on page 9.

The family of Z?<? Z/^j/c-^/^;^// or Z/^i///7/ was of considerable antiquity, long seated at Lushill 
in Wilts. Their arms, as shown in the margin, are entered on several old Heraldic Rolls, but 
the origin of the family I have not found. A line extinct in 1410, little is known of them, 
and my notes on them, as well as on tiie family of Crekelade, are owing 
in large part to the kindness of my friend, Mr. Story-Maskelyne. 

NICHOLAS DE LUSTESHULL, who in 1240 witnessed a charter 
of Henry III, was sheriff of Wilts. 1246-9, and again in 1267. He is 
mentioned in the Testa de Xeziill z.?> holding one and one half knight's 
fees in Lusteshull. 

JOHN DE LUSTESHULL and Joan his wife, in 1333, bought from 
Walter and Peter de Worthe land in Lusteshull, Hanyngdon and Wid-

manors of Leigh, Studley, and Ford, Wilts, and Langridge, Somt. 

This intermarriage with Cricklade has been heretofore wrongly ascribed 
as having been made by Drew Sambourne. 

The son and heir of this Samborne was Walter (IV), of whom, see page 11. 




Arms of Crekelade. 
From Glover's Ordinary 
Hari. MSS. 

The family of Crekelade or Cricklade is a genealogical conum- 
drum ; that they took their name from the ancient parliamentary bor- 
ough at the head-waters of the Thames is probable, but whence they 
derived, and who they were, is hard to decide. " Glover's Ordinarj-'' 
gives for Crekelade, the arms shown on the margin ; but I have been 
unable to find any other authority for it. They were a family of dis- 
tinction, and represented Gloucester, Calne, and Cricklade boroughs in 
Parliament almost continuously from 1351 to 1426. My friend, Mr. 
Story-Maskelyne, suggests that they may have been a branch of the 
Danstanvilles, that Wiltshire family of many aliases. The sketch-ped- 
igree page shows the allied lines :

Arms of Drew. 

The children of Walter and Margaret Samborne were : 

V. I. Drew, born about 1445, of whom next. 
VI. 2. Nicholas, born about 1450; see "The Sambornes of Somerset." 

The family of Drew is of ^reat antiquity. At the Domesday Sun.ey

The children of Drew and Joan Sambourne were : 

1. William Sambourne, born about 1470. Lived at Fernham, Berks. Married Anne. 
daughter of Sir Roger Copley, and granddaughter of the Lord Hoo (great-grandtather. by 
Anne Boleyn, of Queen Elizabeth). William Sambourne died Oct. 20. 1503. His L P. M.

Richard Carev,', Thos. Bradbury, of London, mercer, John Rote, and John Hestwest. to the 
use of Wm. Sambourne and Anne, his wife. Doubtless this was a marriage settlement. The 
only child of Wm. Sambourne and Anne Copley was Margaret Sambourne. a considerable 
heiress; she married the second Lord Windsor, who built the house at Bradenham, Bucks, 
where his son entertained Queen Elizabeth. Ann (Copley) Sambourne survived her husband 
and married (2) Wm. Lusher of the well-known Sussex family.

SOUTHCOT HOUSE, the ancient seat of the Sambournes, is but a few- 
miles t'rom Reading, Berks, and the drive from Readinrr through the beau- 
tiful Berkshire lanes to the old " moated grange" of Southcot is something 
to be remembered. The country was in the height of summer beauty when 
we took the drive, in June, 1S95. The manor house of which a view is given 
is probably only partly the older one where the Sambournes and Drews 
lived ; for about 1600 Lord Windsor sold the entire manor of Southcot to 
John Blagrave. the celebrated mathematician of Reading, who built or 
rebuilt the present house. Southcot still belongs to the Blagraves, but has 


until lately been rented to a Mr. Wastell Brisco, upon whose death the mag- 
nificent old furniture was sold at auction, — an event which brought there 
all the antiquaries in that part of England. 

On June 7, 1895, the place was undergoing some repairs, and all the 
gates were closed and locked, so that we could not get into the old house. 
It is surrounded by a moat still in water, and we drove slowly around it, 
getting charming glimpses from ditierent points. 

VII. Henry Sambourne, of Sonning, Cos. Berks and Oxon. A les- 
see of the bishop, holding the farms of Eye and Bishop's Lands. Married 

Elizabeth, daughter of Richards of Burfield (Burghfield; in Berks. 

His will, dated January 31, 1549, is given in the •' Memorials of Sonning," 
p. 203, filed in Dean Vannes's Visitation, and contains this. 

" Body to be buried in S. Andrew's Church at Sonning before Our Lady's Altar. 4s. ^d. to 
the High Altar; i2d. to poor men's cofter. Wife Elizabeth to enjoy farms of Eye and Bish- 
op's Lands so long as she is a widow. Son Thomas and his children, Harry. Jean, .Anneys, 
and Frances. Daughter Elizabeth, wife of Walter Syngleton, and her children', Tiiomas. John. 
Christopher, and Elizabeth. To son Edmund, my house in Reading and my part of the Par- 
sonage barn in Oxfordshire. To 40 poor householders at my funerall one ell of Holland cloth 
to make them vayles. ^ Or. wheat to be baked for the poor, and at my month's mind and 12 
months' mind, as much. My son Thomas to mind his farming; ^40 to be given him by his 
mother, and she not to meddle therein."

2. Elizabeth; m. Walter Singleton. - T 

3. Edmund, of whom see after, IX. 

SONNING we visited the same day we drove to Southcot, returning 
through Reading. It is but a short drive, and through very pleasant c^untrv. 
Sonning is an ideal English village, situated on the Thames, and frequented 
by artists and anglers. The ancient church of St. Andrew is rich in 
memories of the Barkers, but I could find none of the Sambornes, who had 
moved away from there before the Registers began. We had intended to 
dine at the old-fashioned White Hart Inn in Sonning, but Ven. Archdeacon 
Pott, a type of the old style English clergyman, and a gentleman of a sweet 
courtesy, in.sisted that we should lunch with him, in what is now the par- 
sonage, but was originally the Bishop's residence. Our day in Sonning is 
among the pleasantest memories of our English visit, — the friendly courtesv 
and kindness of the x^rchdeacon and his t'amily, the impressiveness of the 
church and parsonage, and the quaint old streets of Sonning, with their 
rose-clad houses and irregular buildings, all form a picture not easilv to be 

VIII. Thomas Sambourne, of Sonning, in Berks and O.xon, born about 
1505 '' ^ rich squire, leasing from the Bishop of O.xford several large manors 
in Sonning, Eve. and Dunsdon. In the " Memorials of Sonninjr " is some 
account of his difficulties with under-tenants.

Thomas Sambourne registered his pedigree in the Heralds' Visitation of 
Oxfordshire in 1566. He married (i) probably about 1540, Margaret Ven- 
nour, who died about 1549; (2) about 1550, Jane, daughter of Laurence 
Stoughton, of Stoughton Hall, Surrey, who died about 1552; (3) about 
1553, Joan, widow of Hugh Beke, of Reading, and daughter of Henry 
Polstede, of Albury in Surrey, who died 1561 ; (4) Blanche Burdett, m. at 
Engletield, Berks, 1562; buried at St. Giles, Reading, 1570; (5) Clem- 
ence, widow of Richard Stampe, of Cholsey, and daughter of Roger Har- 
bord, of Sefton, County Hereford. 

Thomas Sambourne had no issue by his last two wives. He died in 
1584, and his will, filed 12 Watson P. C. C, dated April 21, 1584, proved 
19 June, 1584, is as follows : 

Body to be buried in Church of S. Andrew at Sonning, as near as possible to the body of 
my father Henry Sainborne. To Clemence, my wife, 100 marks &c. To Mary Chandeler. 
dau. of my brother Edmund, 33s. 8d. To Elizabeth & Margaret Stampe, wife's daughters,

bullock. Residue to Lawrence and Richard Samborne, my sons, and Katherine Samborne. nu* 
daughter, joint exrs. Richard Garnett, gent., my son-in-law, and Henry Samborne my son, 

Will of Clemence Samborne, widow, of Wallingford, Berks, who died 
June 7, 1621, filed in Berks, wills at Somerset House, and daied June 5, 
1618, is as follows : 

To Richard Samborne my daughters sonne, 20s. &c. To John Samborne his brother 50s. 
To Anne Samborne, their sister, 20s. To Elizabeth Samborne, their sister /lo. «S:c. To

borne aforesaid. Joint e.xrs. Overseers, my son-in-law Henry Samborne & his son Sir Henry 
Samborne, Kt. Witnesses, Thos. Stampe, Thos. Russell, Edward Byrte, John Sambourne. 

The children of Thomas Sambourne were : 

1. Henry, born about 1540, of whom see after, X. 

2. Grace, married Henry Peckham of Surrey. 

3. Frances, married Richard Garnett, and had: (i) Thomas; (2) Richard. 

4. Jean, probably died young. 

5. Lawrence, born about 1551, of whom see after, XL 

6. Thomas, probably died young. 

7. Richard, born about 1557, of whom see after, XH. 

8. Katharine. 

9. Walter, probably died }oung. 

IX. Edmund Sambourne, born about 1507, inherited from his father a 
house in Reading, in parish of St. Giles, where he lived and died. His 
will, dated November 13, 1577, proved in 1578, is filed in Somerset House 
among Berkshire wills (Archd. G 122). He left a legacy to St. Giles 
Church and to the Cathedral. "To daughter Mary my house and tene- 


I _ ) . ( 

' w(»f.'.' ,•■ 


ment which I live in : for default of her heirs, to brother Thomas Sam- 
bourne. My wife shall enjoy same during her life." Inventory amounted 
to eight pounds, eight shillings. The will of Margaret Sambourne, his 
widow, dated February S, 1584. filed in Berkshire wills at Somerset House, 
desired to be buried in the churchyard of St. Giles, and leaves a certain 
legacy to Clemence and John Chandler, children of her daughter Marie : 
the rest of her estate, after small legacies to her own relatives, goes to John 
and Mary Chaundler, executors. Witnesses : Agnes Jennyns, alias Mar- 
chaunt, Morris Symes, Richard Bennett, Thomas Simpson, Scrivener. 
From these wills it will be seen that Edmund had but one daughter, Mary, 
who married John Chandler in 15S0 at St. Giles', Reading, and had: (i) 
Clemence; (ii) John. 

X. Henry Sambourne, born about 1540, spent his early life at Sonning, 
where he is called, in 1575. " Mr. Harry Sambourne, Gentleman." He 
married, about 1565, Anne, daughter of William Barker, of Holme Park, 
in Sonning. This fine estate, now belonging to Mr. Golding-Palmer, is 
the principal residence in Sonning, and belonged to the Barkers over three 
hundred years. The Barker family is descended from William Barker, 
steward to Henry VTH. 

Henry vSambourne later moved to Moulsford, Berkshire, a beautiful 
village on the Thames above Reading, where we spent a night in the 
quaint riverside tavern, the *' Beetle and Wedge." At Moulsford we saw 
the church and manor-house. The old residence of the Sambournes, how- 
ever, has been destroyed. Henry Sambourne died intestate, November 17, 
1631. A commiission is filed in Berkshire wills authorizing his son Henry 
to make inventory of goods. The children of Henry Sambourne were : 

1. Henrj-, born about 1570, of whom see after, XIII. 

2. Katharine, married Thomas Tipping, of Woolley, Berkshire. "^ 
^. Mary, married Wm. Howe, of South Okenden, Essex. 

4, Anne, married Thomas Holmes, of Berkshire. 

XI. Lawrence Sambourne. born about 155 1, married Mary, widow of 
Richard Sandys. Lawrence Sambourne received by deed of gitt in 15S7' 
from Thomas Vachell, a considerable estate in Ipsden and Checkenden, 
Oxon. He died in 1617, leaving two daughters: 

1 . .Margaret. 

2. Jane. 

Mary, his widow, died July 31, 1625. 

XII. Richard Sambourne, born about 1557; said in the "Berkshire 
Visitation" of 1665, to have lived at Stokes Farm, near Wokingham, Berks. 
Probably this is an error for South Stoke in Oxfordshire, just across the 
Thames from Moulsford. He seems to have lived near enough to Ipsden to

3. Anne, baptized at St. Marys, Reading, 1597. 

4. Elizabeth. 

XIII. Sir IIenrv Sambourne, born about 1570. A large land owner 
; and a prominent man ; lived at Moulsford, Berkshire ; knighted by King 
\ James in 1608 ; High Sheriff of Berks and licensed to hold court leet 
' at Moulsford in 1616. iNfarried Dorothy, daughter and heir to John Stampe 
; of Aston Tirrold, Berks. Sir Henry Sambourne held important patents 
from the Crown, for the manufacture of saltpetre, having the counties 
; of Oxford, Warwick, Berks., Middlesex, and Sussex. In 1634, he 
\ was summoned by the King, the cause of complaint being that he had taken 
all the best earth for saltpetre, so that no one else could make it. In 
I default of his appearance, he was confined in the Marshalsea, but a few 
' days afterwards was released upon pa^'ment of the usual fees. (State 
; Papers, 1634.) 

Sir Henty lived to an old age arid became lord of the inanors of Mouls- 
' ford, Cholsey, Streatley, and x\ston Tirrold. He seems to have been 
I a grasping and litigious man, and got into trouble with CromwelTs 
I committees for advancing money. In 1645 (Com. for Advancing Money 
I 1643-7) his case was heard and he declared in December, 1646, that he had 
I borrowed £6,000 of the Bishop, on a mortgage on Streatle}' manor. He 
I had paid £1,000 and the manor was seized into the committee's hands. 
He declared his willingness to sell the manor, but could not tind a pur- 
chaser, because it lies near Wallingford, which the enemy held. He begged 
assistance, because he and his lady were aged and had six children to pro- 
: vide for. He claimed to have lost £S,ooo bv the King's armies. 

The Committee in rebuttal said that Sir Henry was very penurious, never 
^spending more than £300 per annum, and had an estate of £1,600 with 
' stock valued at £3,000, of which he pretends to be plundered : that he had 
I debts of £11,000, and never paid principal nor interest nor provided for his 
I children ; that he had tried to bribe Col. Forbes to v^ithdraw the prosecu- 
• J tion. The Committee ended bv savino-, that "monev can be raised bv the 
^ sale of wood on his land, but Sir Henry is not to be trusted, for he never 
I dealt honestly with anybody." In 1647, he paid a fine of £429 and all pro- 
^-cedings against him were forborne. 


[Chan. Pro. Temp. Chas. I. Bdle A A. 50, n. 140.) — 4 Feb. 1652. Christopher Alne- 
wicke of Aston Tirrold in Co. Berks, gent, complains that whereas John Alnewicke late of 
Clements Inn in Co. Midd. gent pit's ijrother an attorney at law being solicitor for Sir Henry 
Samborne of .Moulsford in Co. Berks, Knt., asked the sd. Sir Henry for £~,o to be paid out 
upon his various suits, but he refused unless pits, said brother would give him security, so pit. 
& his said brother became bound together as sureties on condition that as soon as the said 
John should have used up the said money for the said Sir Henry the bond of £^\oo should be 
cancelled by Henry .Samborne, Esq., son of the said Sir Henry. About the 22nd Oct. 1647 
the said John Alnewicke paid ^30 out of the said ^50 to the said Sir Henry. Afterwards the 
said John laid out £,^ in a suit between the said Sir Hen. & M' Haddon, £2 in a suit with 
M' Creswell Skinner, /4 in a suit against .M' Clarke, / 10 in a suit against M' Holmes, /5 in 
a suit against M"" Rawley, M"" Weston and others, (i ^5 for attending to avoid a sequestration 
of Sir Henry's estate to Capt. Carmanoe which discharged the said bond by more than ^40. 
Before the said John Alnewicke could send an account to the said Sir Hen. he died — about last 
August, & the said defts. have put the said bond in suit against pit. & threaten to obtain 
judgment thereupon although it has been fully paid. 

Sir Henry Sambourne died about 1660. His children were : 

1. Henry, born about 1610, of whom see after, XV^I 

2. William, born about 1612, of whom see after. XVII 

3. Dorothy, married Toby Sadler of Faringdon. Berks. -

5. .Mary, married Jeremiah Hand, April 12, 1664. 

6. Martha, married White of Streatley, Berks.; a v.idow, in 1699. 

XIV. Richard Sambourne, born about 1589, lived and died in Cholsey, 
Berkvshire ; married Dorothy, daughter of Richard Comyns of Cholsey. 
His children were : 

1. Henry, born 1622, married Mary, dau. of Tery of Avington, Hants, and had 

(i.) Richard, (ii.) Henry. 

2. Joseph. 

3. Benjamin. , . _ ; 

XV. John Sambourne, born about 1591, of whom we have no record. 
It is not impossible that he was the Sambourne who married Anne Bach- 
iler, but proof is not found. 

XVI. Henry Sambourne, born about 1610, lived at Moulsford in 1666, 
when he had a law-suit about the disposition of his father's estate. We 
have no record of his marriage or subsequent life, but presume that he died 
without issue before 1697, since in that year his brother William was lord ot 
the manor of Streatley. 

XVII. Willia.m Sambourne, born about 161 2, apparently succeeded to 
the Berkshire estates on the death of his brother Henry ; died in 1697, leav- 




ing to the poor of Moulsford, certain lands in Streatley, a tablet of which 

charity is still in Moulstbrd Church. Married Mary , and had : 

I. William, born about 1650 ; with liis mother was sued in 1700 for the disposition of Sir 
Henry Sambourne's estate 


VI. Nicholas Samborne, born about 1450. He inherited from his 

; mother all her personal property, and had received from his father certain 

lands in Wiltshire. Apparently, he made his iiome at Mapledurham, 

Oxfordshire where his friends, (and perhaps relatives,) the Blounts resided. 

This famous family owned Mapledurham House, whose deer park is 

, renowned. The Blounts were Romanists, and later members were Iriends 

, of the poet Pope. 

Nicholas Samborne married Elizabeth, daughter of John Brocas of 
Beaurepaire, Hants, who is said to have sui-\'iyed him, 
and married (2) William Yong. By this marriage, the 
Sambornes were connected with the oldest families of 
Hampshire. The Brocas family trace their pedigree to 
the XI Century ; a Sieur de Brocas of France came to 
England in the XII Century, and from that time, the 
Barons Brocas of Hampshire have ranked almost with 
royalty. John Brocas, the father of Elizabeth Sam- 
borne, was Sheritl'of Hants in 14S2, and died in 1492. 
He was fourth in descent from Sir Bernard Brocas, ihe 
Chamberlain of Richard II who remained faithful to 
his ruined master, and was beheaded in 1399: his beau- 
tiful tomb is in S. Edmund's Chapel, Westminster Abbey. 
Tiie mother of Elizabeth Samborne was the second 
wife of John Brocas : she was Ann. daughter of John 
Rogers, Esq', of Freefolke, Hant|. John Rogers was 
of a good Hampshire family, and his wite was Mar- 
("•erv, daucrhter of Sir John Lisle of Wooditon, I. W. 
and Thruxton, Hants. The Lisles were perhaps the 
proudest tamily in Hampshire, and traced their descent 
to the XI Century. The direct line of the Lisles died 
out in 1542, and their estates were divided among the 
heirs. Wooditon, the ancient seat of the family, went 
to a Cadet branch of the Lisles. whose descendant was 
that Sir Thomas Lisle, the Regicide, whose daughter 
Arms of Lis. f. married the ancestor of the American Hoar tamily

TiMSBURY Hou.SE, the most ancient Samborne residence in England, is 
celebrated, even in Somersetshire, that county of tine seats, for tlie beauty 
and interest of its Tudor architecture. We drove from Wells, up over the 
high Mendip hills, and hadglimpsesofentrancing English scenei-y all tlie wav. 
Timsbury lies off the direct road from Wells to Bath, and is about a moi-n- 
ing's ride from either place. The country iibounds in beautiful estates ; and 
several times we thought we saw the House, but it was farther alontr. As 
we swept to the left through. Timsbury village, with steep streets and marks 
of the colliery, we came suddenly upon a magniticent and very old house 
with mullioned windows and stained glass. The engraving gives a fair idea 
of the place, which is of very large extent, and to which an avenue leads 
past the porter's lodge and by the church. We entered a fine old hall, 
wainscoted with oak and with an enormous fire-place ; and Avere ushered 
into a spacious drawing-room filled with flowers. The t"amily were all 
kindness and hospitality : they are directly connected with America, for 
one daughter married Mr. AliVed D. Foster of Boston, Vice-President of the 
New England Mutual Life Insurance Company. The house is practicallv 
unchanged since 1542. except tor an alteration, which Maudley Samborne 
made, cutting down the height of the rooms (which are still verv high and 
spacious) to add a story between the ground floor and the second story. 
One large wing was destroyed by fire in the last century. The roof was 
originally of stone, but the late Mr. Samborne feared the enormous weight 
would injure the house, so he removed the stone, and I believe built his 
porter's lodge out of it. A few of the magnificent XVI century oak doors, 
exquisitely carved, are still left.

The muniment chest at Timsbury is rich in old deeds, etc., and would 
well repay a careful search ; Mr. John Samborne has gone over many of the 
old papers, and is much interested in the family history. 

XX. John Samborne, born about 1490. Where he spent his early life 
is not known ; perhaps in Berkshire. By his mother's family, he was con- 
nected with the Hampshire gentry, and may have lived in that county. He 
had already inherited from his father some Wiltshire property, and at his 
mother's death, one third of the manor of Bury Blunsdon, Wilts, came to 

He married about 1525, Dorothy, daughter of 
Nicholas Tichborne of Tichborne in Hants. This 
Hampshire family frequently held the office of High 
Sheritr, and is familiar to all in connection with 
the famous Tichborne Claimant Case. Nicholas Tich- 
W W / borne, the father of Dorothy Samborne, was the 

son of John Tichborne, SheritT of Hants in 14S7. 
Arms of Tichborne. Dorothy d. April 21, 1572, at Timsbury.

Nicholas inherited from his father, lands in Rodbourne, Wilts, and pre- 
sumably from his mother, a considerable estate in Hants. (See under VI

his descendant, — just what the line was does not appear, but apparently slie 
was one of the heirs of her father, since Coker's Survey of Dorset states the 
heirs generalls of the \Villougl-ib\'s ot" Turner's Puddle were married to 
.Thomas Gerrard, Samborne, Hayman, Cuff, Newport, and Baynard. 

An indenture dated August 3, 1607, between Sir Barnaby Samborne and 
Sir Thomas Freke, recites that "Thos. Moollens, Esq'''^, John Cleves, 
Gent., Nicholas Meader, and Nicholas White, by deed dated Nov. 19, 1565,

The said Hen. Vaughan was engaged as a commander in the late unhappy wars & was 
seised of divers lands. 

The answer of William Samborne Esq. & Ann his wife : Defts do not know that pits were 
the administrators of Ric^ Mogge deced. They knew the said Hen. Vaughan dcced for he 
was son to this deft. Anne, & did not know what bonds he entered into. They do not know- 
that the said Hen. owed money to the said Richard. They have heard that he had an estate 
in fee-tail in Stone Easton, but do not know the value thereof. He was to have enjoyed the 
farm & lands at Paulton wherein defts. live for his life if he had survived this deft. Ann, \sho 
when she was sole made a lease to him about the year 1631 of certain lands called the Heyes 
& old mills & other grounds containing 1 1 1 a., parcel of the said farm of Paulton for the term

death except a sword, a buff coat & a mare which the soldiers took possession of.

In 1649, being sequestered, he petitioned against it. saying " lie had done nothing nor

to sequestration he took advantage of a promise of Parliament to favour all such as voluntarily 
discover themselves, and sent in a list of his estates at Tymesborowe & Xunney: the yearly 
value of y« latter was /^i8o w^ he had in fee tayle after the death of his mother." In consider-

His inventory, taken Au^ 25, 1603, by Anthony Gattonby, Richard 
; Venables, Rowland Mopgood, and Wm. Barton of Andover, is very inter- 
esting (amount £91 8s.), describing all the goods in detail, covering eight 
pages, and mentioning among other things — all the books (£5), a writing- 
desk (4d.), wearing apparel (£5 19s.). 

From this it will be seen that the only surviving children of Rev. James 
Samborne were Abicail and Tames. These are the onlv ones of whom 
we have any record. 

1. Abigail, baptised at Weyhill. Hants, April 13, 1572. 

2. James, born 1576, (Oxford Register), of whom see after, L 

We spent several days in the neighborhood of Andover, the early home 
of the Hampshire Sambornes, and through the kindness of the late Rev. 
R. H. Clutterbuck, Rector of Penton Mewsey, Hants, an antiquary of 
fame, we enjoyed opportunities which few could have. ^Ir. Cluuerbuck 

• himself escorted us about Andover, and pointed out the house in which 
probably lived Julius Samborne, town clerk of Andover in 1700. For my 
church notes of Andover, however, I am indebted to my friend, Mr. George 

[ F. Tudor Sherwood, of London, whose courtesy I take this means of 


At Upper Clatford, Hants, the home of Rev. James and Rev. Thomas 
Samborne, we spent pleasant hours, and the Rector, Rev. Mr. Noakes, 
was most kind in showing me the old Registers, which a predecessor has 
preserved, though in a somewhat damaged condition. 

Upper Clatford is a charming village on the banks of the Anton ; and the 
church is an ideal country church, embowered in trees, and so old that its 
exact age is unknown. Parts of the present delightful rectory are also very 
old, and a beautiful avenue connects it with the church. 

Goodworth Clatford, Hants, is also 'a Samborne home, for there Rev. 
Anthony Gattonbv spent his life, after resigning the Vicarage of Andover 
to his relative. Rev. James Samborne. Both Gattonby and Samborne 
v/ere strong Hampshire men, and both students at Winchester College. 
Rev. Mr. Iremonger, the present Rector of Goodwoith Clatford, was very 
hospitable and fienerous in showin^r me the Reiiisters. 

XXVni. Edward Samborne. Born about 1550. The only record we 
have of him is the mention in the w^ill of his brother, Rev. James, in 1603. 
! My theory points to him as the ancestor of our x\merican family (see 
sketch pedigree.)

. L. Rev. James Samborne. Born in 1576, according to the Oxford 
Registers. Matriculated at Magdalen College, Oxford. Described as 
"son of a gentleman of Hants." Apparenth' had some family iniiuence near 
Andover (perhaps at Thruxton, where his cousins, the Philpots, held tlie 
ancient Lisle possessions). Foster says James Samborne was Rector of 
Grateley, Hants, in 1604, and of Upper Clatford, Hants, in 1610. We know 
that he was presented to the living of Upper Clatford by Arthur Swaine of 
Sarson, Hants (next parish to Thruxton). 

A long bill, tiled in Chancery Proceedings, June 13, 1664, is, in brief, as 
follows : 

Bill of Thomis Samborne, eldest son &: heir of Thomas Samborne, late of Up Clatford 
Hants, Clarke, who was eldest son & heir of James Samborne late of the same parish. About 
1610 one Arthur Swaine of Sarson, Hants, was seized of the right of presentation to p"sh of 
Up Clatford, and presented the said James Samborne to the said Rectory, who was thereupon 
instituted &c. Shortly after, Arthur Swaine died & his son Edward sold all his rights to the 
said James Samborne. About 162S your orator's father being then under 21 and a scholar of 
St. Mary Magdalen Hall in the Univ. of O.xford, the said James Samborne, being a very inti- 
mate friend of Sir Thomas Jervois, then of Herriard. Hants, did convey all his interest in Up 
Clatford in trust to the said Jervois & shortly after, died. Sir Thomas Jervois instituted one 
Hook* to the living, but your orators father coming of age, the said Hook resigned, and your 
orator's said father, Thomas Samborne was presented to the living (in 1632) when Sir Thos. 
Jervois pretended that he had paid some debts of your orator's grandfather & said he would 
retain the title to the premises until the debts were paid. But the late unhappy wars breaking 
out, and your orator's father being a person of eminent loyalty to the late glorious mighty King 
Charles I ; and the said Jervois being a person of great authority in the then pretended Parlya- 
ment, he procured your orator's father to be sequestered for a delinquent against the said par- 
lyament (and he was the very tirst minister that was sequestered in that county or in the 
whole kingdom), and so he continued during all the time of the said trouble, until the late 
happy restoration, when your orator's father being legally restored to the premises died about 
eighteen months ago. When he was so sequestered, the said Jervois came to him, confessed 
the deed to be a trust. 3c offered that if your orator's father would assert the interest of the then 
"godly & well affected party" as then called, he would not only restore him to the rectory 
but would reconvey the premises to him &c. 

As an answer, Thomas Jervois of Herriard recited the indenture of 1637. 
whereby Christian Samborne, widow of James Samborne; and 
Samborne, Clerke, deed., son and heir to the said James Samborne. con- 
veyed the said rectory, etc., for a valuable consideration to Sir Thomas 

This Sir Thomas Jervois was a prominent Puritan, a member of the 
' Rump Parliament,' and a commander in the Civil War. His descend- 

* Kev. William Hook, chaplain to Oliver Cromwell, and for a while minister at Taunton, Mass.

ants Still live at Herriard Park, the present representative bein^r Francis 
Michael Ellis-Jervois, J. P. A close intimacy existed between Sir Thomas 
Jervois and James Samborne, as can be seen from the following entries on 
the Close Rolls. 

Close Roil, May lyth 1616, 14 James I. " Thos. Jervois Co. South., Kt. for 10 s. in hand 
paid by Sir Geo. Wrotesly and James Samborne clerk, conveys in trust the manors of Poyle, 
Chelmarsh, and Nethercourt."' 

Close Roll, yutte 161/1 1623, 21 James /, " Between Sir Thos. Jervois, Herriard, Co 
Soutii., Henry Cherfield and Robert Mason of Lincoln's Inn; and Sir Geo. Wrottesley of 
Farneham, Co. Surrey, Kt. and James Samburne of Clatford, Co. South. Clerk. Whereas 
Henry Arthur of Herriard and Eliz. his wife, conveyed to Cherfield and .Mason during the 
life of Eliz. manorholds called Lee Place and lands in Herriard. Southropp and Weston Pat- 
rick in Co. South: Cherfield & Mason with consent of Jervois convey to Wrotesley and 
Samburne for ^1,000 the said premises during life of Eliz. 

Close Roll A'ovcmber Jlh 21 James /. Between Sir Thomas Jervois: and Henry Cherfield 
of New Sarum and James Samborne of Upper Clatford, Clerk, conveys in trust "Manor of 
Brilford, Wilts, and other lands in Wilts, on condition that they allow Jervois to occupy dur- 
ing life, that they pay his debts at death, residue for daughters of Jervois by Dame Lucy, now 
his wife," whose interest is also provided for. 

Sherfield was a Wiltshire Recorder, who had strong Puritan tendencies, 
and was tried for sacrilege in destroying a stained-glass window in Salis- 
bury. From the intimac}' between Rev. James Samborne and these Puri- 
tans it may reasonabh' be asserted that he was himself of their way ot 
thinking, and this would bring him near in spirit to that " notorious incon- 
formist," Stephen Bachiler. , __ _

XXXIII. Richard Samp.orne. Born in Maiden Newton, Dorset; bap- 
tised there, Jan. 9, 1575. A merchant in Weymoiitli, Dorset, \vith a large 
(and I fear irret'-uhir) trade to France. Finallv moved his establishment to 
Caen, in Normandy, where he apparently lived and died. A merchant in 
a large way, who entered several Bills in Chancery for misappropriation of 
his goods by factors. The Calendars of State Papers furnish the following : 

" 1625 : Prohibited goods laden in Ireland in a ship belonging to Richard Samborne, under 
bond to land them in Weymouth, but carried thence without entry at the Custom House; sug- 
gested that R. S. be committed and give surety for /io,ooo, the value of the goods.'' 

" 1628 : Petition of Mary, wife of Richard Samborne to the illustrious Prince, George, Duke 
of Buckingham ; petitioner's husband having his whole estate in Norniandy at Caen, crossed 
the seas in June last, proposing to ship his goods to England, but the coming of the English 
fleet prevented his doing so. Prays for permission to accomplish his intent." 

He married in France, ]Marie, daughter of Rignouf ; and died in 

1642. His will, dated Feb. 21, 1631, proved July 15, 1642, and filed 94 
Campbell, P. C. C, is as follows: 

" Whereas, John Saintlow, now of London, merchant, by deed dated June 24, 21 Jac. I. by 
the name of John Saintlow of Knighton, Wilts, demised to me 2 parts (in 3 to be divided) of 
the capital messuage or farm of Pegledge als. Peglinche. and Woodberowe, situate in the par- 
ishes of Camerton and Wellow, Somt., with all the appurtenances, also all the messua£;es, 
lands, etc., sold to the said John Saintlow by John Doughty of Bristol, merchant, and Oliver 
Snell of the same, linen draper, by indenture dated June 7.21 Jac. I ; to hold for the period of 99 
years under the yearly rent of one peppercorn. And whereas also Giles Greene of Weymouth 
in Co. Dorset, gent., and the sd. John Saintlowe by deed dated 16 Nov. 2 Car. I demised to

and hereditaments in Wellov.-e and Camerton which then lately descended to MacUeius Sam- 
borne as cousin and next heir of Barnaby Samborne deceased, to hold to me for 99 years under

XXXIV. Francis Sambornk. Born in Maiden X^ewton, Dorset, about 
1577. A merchatit in London ; said in Vis. of London, 16S7, to have 
been a goldsmitli. Married at St. ^Llry Maj^dalen, Bermondsey, February, 
1606, Margaret, daughter of X^icholas Blencowe or Blincoe, gent., of Soutli- 
wark. Francis Samborne was a substantial merchant, but seems to have 
been involved in many vexatious cases at law. In Chanc. Proc., temp. 
Car. I, bdl. S 25, Xo. 39, appears the following Bill brought by him vs. 
William Clayball : 

" Orator Francis Samborne, of London, gent. ; his wife Margaret Blincoe was left by her 
father one messuage in London ; she died having borne him four children, Nicholas, Francis 
William & Richard. Six years since, your orator having about that time sent his eldest son 
Nicholas to Holland as a factor for some goods valued at ^800 sent by ship, heard that the 
ship, his son and the goods were cast away, whereupon your orator took a journey into those 
parts to be better ascertained of the said information ; and before his departure called to mind 
(as truly is) that Will: Clayball was a lessee in trust for your orator; and asked him to take 
upon himself the education of your orator's two younger sons, telling him that your orator was 
to take with him Francis Samborne, his second son, to bind him apprentice to some merchant 
in those parts. Your orator gave to Will: Clayball ^{^loo in money and clothing, and 
authorized him to receive in trust the rents of the sd. Messuage in Mark Lane where your ora- 
tor lived and of two other houses. Your orator was absent from Xov. 1627 to Feb. 1632 and 
then returned home, having found that his son Nicholas and his goods had been cast away, 
and leaving his son Francis bound apprentice in Holland, to your orator's great charges ; etc."' 
Goes on to say that Clayball had misappropriated the property left in his charge. 

In the same bundle, No. 5, appears a Bill brought by Francis Samborne 
vs. Peter George, a Yeoman of the Guard, complaining that when Sam- 
borne went abroad he left all his papers, books, etc., in the possession of 
the said George, who had embezzled them. 

Children : 

1. Nicholas, born 1610; entered at Merchant Taylor's School in London, 1618; drov.ned 

at 16 years, as has been seen above. 

2. Francis, of whom see after, LXVI '; . • . 

3. William, of whom see after, LXVH 

4. Richard, of whom see after, LXVHI 

XXXV. John Samborne. Born about 1585. Said in the Visitation of 
London, 16S7, to have been a merchant abroad with his brother Richard. 
No further record exists of him., except the title of the following elaborate 
heraldic scroll, which shows that he was living abroad in 165 1, and thus 
disposes of the theory that he was the father of the three American Sam- 
bornes, since that member of the family had died before 1632. The heraldic 
scroll of which tlie following is the title, w^s exhibited thirty years ago bv 
the late John Gough Xichols, at the Heraldic Exhibition of the Society of 

; -.-..;! 'iv; 

■!' ■ I 


Antiquaries at Somerset House ; it is mentioned in \^ol. I of the Herald and 
Genealogist, but I have betju unable to find any further trace of it. This is 
the title : 

" Genealcria, sive prosapi.i generosissimi viri : Johannis Samborne, jam in partis transmar- 
inis existentis: filii quart! Francisci Sambourne de Maiden Xeuton in Com. Dorset generosi : 
filii secundi Johannis Sambourne de Tymesburie in Com. Somt : ex antiqua stirpe Sambourn- 
orum in Sunning in Com. Derks oriundi." [Dated July 4, 165 i.j 

LX. Anne Samborne. Born in 1602. Married probably in Caen, Nor- 
mandy, France, John LeBas, of Caen. Gent., born July 13, 1607, son of 
John LeBas, Esq., and Marie, daughter of Robert Paisan. John LeBas 
was a French merchant, whose sons came to England with the Restoration.

1. John, born March 10, 1625, ob. s. p. . ' 

2. James, born June 26, 1627, ob. s. p.

LXL Michael Samborne. Born about 1603. Perhaps lived in 
France, but left no issue. Living in 1676. 

LXIL Richard Samborne. Born about 1605. A merchant trading 
between France and England: probably lived in Caen, and came to Eng- 
land at the Restoration. Married and died before 1676, leaving a wife and 
two daughters. 

LXin. Thomas Samborne, of Caen, in France, and later of London. 
He and his brother John were wealthy merchants. Royalists, who aided 
in the escape of Charles H, and in his restoration in 1660. 

The Calendars of State Papers between 1650 and 1660 contain frequent 
references to these Sambornes, who appear to have been the means of 
advancing money for the King, and were prominent in the plots to restore 
him to the throne. 

" Petition dated July 1660, of Thomas and John Samborne, merchants, for the nomination of 
one of them as Commissioner in the Excise Office. They have done great services during the 
late war, in relieving persons of quality and others related to His .Majesty; they hope he will 
not forget the infinite honour he did them at Rouen on his miraculous deliverance. Statement 
of reasons why Thomas and John Samborne should be looked upon as loyal sufferers: they 
have had several commissions from the late and present King, — supplied munitions &C. to the 
value of ^25,000, were banished and sold their inheritance for fear of sequestration; on the 
King's escape from Worcester and landing in Rouen. John Samborne was the only person to 
whom he trusted the secret of his arrival, and sent him with a packet to the Queen Mother: 
he introduced to His .Majesty .Mr. Scott, who relieved him with money for Paris : and he still

preserves a part of His Majesty's disijuise as a relic. They undertook commissions for the 
King, Queen and Duke of York when none else would sail, .settling near the Queen at the 
Palais Royal. A year ago they were employed to bring the King and Princes from Paris to 
be delivered on board the z?^;'/.'///'^?/ ^y /:";/<,' A?;^/. .Man)' nobles can attest their services; they 
request the least otSce for one of them.'' (Cal. of State Papers.) 

Volume IV of Clarendon's State Papers contains many letters inter- 
changed between Lord Chancellor Hyde (Lord Clarendon) and Mr. John 
Samborne, showing the friendly relations in which Samborne stood with the 
English Court. 

Married Margaret, widow of Peter Gosfruit, a wealthy merchant of Lon- 
don. Had no issue. The will of Thomas Samborne, dated June 3, 1676, 
filed 92 King, P. C. C, is as tollows : 

" To be buried either at Somersett House or the Chapel Royal, as the religious men belong- 
ing to His Majesty's Chajjel and the Cliapel of the Portuguese Ambassador shall see fit. To

then belonged to the said Thos. Haward or to Geo. Haward or to Thos. Haward, Esq. To 
hold for 21 years, at the yearly rent of i peppercorn. By indenture dated 23 July. 1674. the 
said Thos. Samborne demised to the said Thos. Haward all the said manors &c. : To hold 
for 20 years and 11 months, paying therefore yearly for the first 7 years ^100, &. for the resi- 
due of the said term i peppercorn. Tlie said Thos. Samborne being possessed of the said 
annuities of ^{^60 Sc £100 &: having also a considerable persona! estate by his will devised /loc 
per ann. to his wife Margaret for her life; also the lease of his dwelling house in Axe yard, & 
all his furniture, plate, pictures, &c. in the said house, worth about /looo, & after giving 
divers legacies to the children and relations of the said Margaret by her former husband, testa- 
tor bequeathed the rest of his estate to Lewis Lewis, Esq , Francis Gosfruight & RiC^ Gos- 
fruight 2 of the sons of the said .\Largaret by her former husband, whom he made executors, in 
trust for the benetit of pits., the said Kiffiana being also a dau. of tlie said Margaret by her 
former husband. About Sept., 1677, the said Margaret being dissatisfied with the provision 
made for her, while her husband lay on his death bed went into the closet where his money, 
securities, jewels, &c. were kept, & carried away a diamond jewel which cost testator ^^500, :i: 
a bond whereby M"' Pargiter was bound to pay testator ^300. At first she denied taking 
them, but afterwards confessed, whereupon a treaty was had between testator & Sir Nathaniel 
Hearne & others & it was agreed that if the said Margaret restored the said jewel & bond tes- 
tator should give her ^200 more than he had left her in his will. 

The said Thomas Samborne died about January. 1676, & the said Lewis Lewis & Francis 
Gosfruight proved his said will, but the said Ric-* Gosfruight did not prove it. Then the said 
Margaret in spite of the said agreement gave out that according to the custom of Wales she 
ought to have a third part of the said annuities of ^60 & /loo, & commenced a suit against 
the said exors. & now they are confederating together so that there may be but a faint defence, 
&; that the verdict may be given for her. The said Margaret was born in Wales & has many 
friends and relations there whereas pits, live in Midds. & are quite unable to attend any trial in 
Wales Sec.

C. A fnend has kindly sent me the following entry from the Parish Register of Easton-in- 
Gordano, Somt. : "Married Robert Samborne and Agnes Phillipps, the 6t of July, 1635." 
Doubtless this was a descendant of the Timsbury Sambornes, whose line outside the direct 
owners of Timsbury is rather incomplete. Easton-in-Gordano is eight miles east of Bristol, 
abutting on the river Avon, and four miles from Portishead, where it enters the British Chan- 
neL The name still exists in the parish, my friend goes on to say, — " Hanging in the vestry 
of the church were the surplices of the choristers, and in each is the name of the wearer, on a 
piece of paper sewn upon it; one is ' Willie Sambourne,' and another, ' Herbert Sambourne.'" 

D. Chambers' •' Next of Kin'' contains a note. No. 94,812, which I find to be an adver- 
tisement for the representative of Richard Samborne, Gent., who in the year 1749, was a Soli- 
citor and one of the 60 Clerks in Chancery, residing in Bartlett's Buildings, Holborn, London. 

E. The following data, written by the celebrated artist, Mr. Linley Sambourne, shows his 
ancestry as far back as he can trace it. Mr. Sambourne is probably the best known artist 
in black and white in England, and his cartoons for Punch have been one of the features of 
that journal for twenty years and more :

From 1S91 to 7, O.xford undergraduate. 

Mr Edward Linley Sambourne's father, uncle and aunt were born at Easton, Penn., U. S. .A.. 
There are two letters from this Thomas Samborne, or Sambourne (he added the u) to his 
uncle, James Wheat, dated Philadelphia, April 3. 1800, and April loth, 1804, explaining the 
reasons for his long silence and going somewhat fully into the state of American politics, etc., 
and the latter enclosing a power of attorney for his mother to receive a legacy due to him. At 
the end of the latter he says, "My little boy is very hearty and the verv picture of his grand- 
mother." In the former he says, " Owing to the good education you have given me I have 
been enabled to turn my hand to any line of life. I learned surveying by my own application, 
and few have been supposed better where I was knov.-n. My plannings would not have dis- 
graced Mr. Fairbanks, and 1 venture to assure you that I have never disgraced the education 
you have bestowed on me by being otherways than a gentleman. I teach music at present in 
a fev« genteel families here until I can save a few hundred pounds, which will enable me to 
retire into the Back country and follcnu my former profession of the Law, which is both the most 
lucrative and most respected here," etc. 

Edward Linley Sambourne, born January 4, 1844. Educated at city of London schools and 
Chester colleges. Intended for the engineering profession, and entered the establishment of 
John Penn & Son, engineers, Greenwich, 1S61-7. Began to draw for Punch, 1S67, and has 
contributed ever since. Now is cartoonist with Sir John Tenniel, and is well known as a 
draughtsman and designer. 

F. William Sambourne of Brimpton, Berks, was appointed overseer of the will of Walter 
Bacheller, cooper, of Tadley. Hants, — will dated July 23, 1616, and proved the same year. 
Walter Bacheller was the son of John Bacheller of Woking, and had brothers John and Ed- 
mund, the latter living in Aldermaston, Berks. This connection between the Bachellers and 
Sambornes seems suggestive, and I tried to get the entries from Brimpton registers, since I 
had been unable to lind any trace of who this William was. L'nfortunately the Brimpton Reg- 
isters were burned, so that there are now none extant dated before 1650, nor are there any Sam- 
borne entries up to 1700. 



It would be unnecessary and cumbersome to print in this volume every 
Samborne pedigree, printed and in MS., or to give the exact reference to 
all the Englisli records on which Samborne data are found. All the Eng- 
lish pedigrees of the name have contained the same errors. As examples I 
print the following : 

A. A curious old pedigree from Timsbury JNISS. of the Stuart period; apparently the work 

of some heraldic forger, since none of the earlier matches can be verified; and the 
generations just before John Samborne, who married Dorothy Tichborne, are certainly 

B. A pedigree compiled by the Heralds' College for the father of the present owner of Tims- 

bury, when the latter obtained Royal permission to assume the name of Samborne. It 
is interesting as showing the errors of the early Visitations perpetuated in the Heralds' 
work of this century. 

C. The pedigree of the Oxfordshire and Berkshire- Sambournes, registered by Thomas Sam- 

bourne of Sonning in the 0.\fordshire Visitation of 1566; shows the erroneous early 
generations, and is the foundation for all later Berkshire Sambourne descents. 

D. Sambourne pedigree in Vis. of Berks. 1623. 

E. The pedigree of the Somersetshire Sambornes, registered by the oldest son in the Somer- 

set Visitation of 1623. Shows the entirely erroneous early generation; and also shows 
ignorance of the connection between the Somerset and Berks branches, which should 
have been known at that time. 

In tracing for this voltime the Samborne descent, the correctness of which 
is undoubted, the following records have been searched, and every capital 
reference to the name extracted :

The files of the Principal Probate Registry at Somerset House, comprising the most im- 
portant English Wills, from 1383 to 1750.

There is no doubt that the American Sanborns are a branch of the 
ancient WiUshire family of Samborne, but the absolute proof of connection 
has not yet come to light, in spite of a protracted search in this country and 

There are several English Sambornes from any one of whom we may be 
descended. I have tabulated these various theoretical ancestors as follows, 
in order of probability : 

I. HanipsJiirc Sambornes. This seems the most probable connection 
since the life and associations of our ancestor, Rev. Stephen Bachiler, were 
much with the county of Hants. While he was living there, in Wherwell and 
Newton Stacy, there were living in neighboring parishes two of the Hamp- 
shire famil\', Rev. James Samborne of Gratelv and Upper Clatford. and 
Rev. Anthony Gattonby of Andover and Goodworth Clatford. James Sam- 
borne held strong Puritanical views, and would thus have been closelv asso- 
ciated with Bachiler. Gattonby lived even nearer BaclMler, and was of the 
same turn of mind. James Samborne himself, born about 1576, was appar- 
ently not the father of our Samborne ancestor, who married Anne Bachiler : 
but his uncles, Edward and John Samborne,. probably lived near Andover, 
and either of them may have been his father. At Brimpton, in Berks, just 
across the line from Kingsclcre in Hants, we tind a William Sambourne, 
overseer to the will of Walter Bachiler in 1616. At Basingstoke, in 1641, 
we find a Joiin Samborne, sergeant-at-mace to George Bavnard, niax'or 
of Basingstoke in that year. Baynard was a stanch Puritan and own 
cousin to Sir Barnaby Samborne of Timsburv, who was a cousin to 
Rev. James, rvly tlieory is shown by the following sketch pedigree :

The best clue to our English origin seems to lie through the discoveries 
in regard to Rev. Stephen Bachiler, the grandfather of our first American 
ancestors. The account of Mr. Bachiler. given below, states the main 
facts of his life ; but for our purpose the most important point is that lie 
was first and last a Hampshire man. He lived in Hampshire from his pre- 
sentation to the living of Wherwell until he sailed for America, and all his

connections were with Hampshire. He was Vicar of Wherwell while Rev. 
James Samborne was Vicar of x\ndover, almost the next parish, and while 
Anthony Gattonby was Rector of Goodworth Clatford, the very next parish 
to Wherwell; atler Mr. Bachiler had been deprived of his'benefice the 
second Rev. James Samborne was successively Rector of Grateley and 
Upper Clattbrd, but a few miles further away; and as we have' seen, 
the Sambornes and Gattonby were strongly tinged with Puritanism. This 
branch of the Sambornes was essentially a Hampshire tamily, owning land 
there and m,arr3'ing Hampshire women. 

All the children of Rev. Stephen Bachiler of whom we have record mar- 
ried in Hampshire or the adjoining counties, viz. : 

1. Natlianiel. Ijorn 1590; married Hester .Mercer of Southampton, a niece of Rev. John 

PriauLx, Archdeacon of Sarum. 
ii. Deborah, horn 1592; married Rev. John Wing of O.xfordshire, Holland and London. 
iii. Stephen, born 1594; m Uriculated at .Ma-dalen College, O.xford (James Samborne's 


2. Berkshire Samboiirncs. Not so probable, since the name was difTer- 
ently spelt, and tliere is no special reason for connecting them with Rev. 
Stephen Bachiler. But 'Jolui Sanihonrne of Cholsey, son of Richard 
of Wallingford, was born about 1591, and may have been the husband of 
Anne Bachiler. 

3. London Samhorncs. I can find no member of this branch who might 
have been our ancestor. From the record of Anne Samborne's journey to 
Holland, in 1631, it is apparent that she was living "in ye strand." Per- 
haps this points to a London connection, but it is more probable she was 
staying with one of her brothers, or their families, the Mercers.

iv. Samuel, born 1596, a chaplain in Holland, 1620. 

V. Theodate, born 159S ; married Christopher Hussey. of Dorking, in Surrey, but a con- 
nection probably of Christopher Hussey, many years Mayor of Winchester. 
vi. Anne, born 1600; married about 1619 (John?) Samborne, who died about i628-"30. 

Thus propinquity and s}'inpathy in religious feeling would point to a 
connection between the Bachilers and the Ilampj^hire Sambornes. 

The Registers ot* Wherwell are destroyed, and those of Upper Clatford 
are somewhat injured ; the Andover Registers throw but little light on the 
Hampshire Sambornes, and there is but one Samborne will filed at Win- 
chester. One of the most important files of Winchester wills is, however, 
missing, and siiould that ever be found it may elucidate the mvsterv. 

Concerning the life of Stephen Bachiler, less is extant than of most of 
the founders of New England ; 3'et tew of the early Puritans were more 
widel}' known in their day, and none had a more checkered career. 
Bachiler, as is said of a descendant of his, " had a real genius t'or opposing 
the majority," and in consequence his character has been much maligned. 
The truth is, he was a reformer, with the strength and weakness of his 
kind. He was among the first to refuse conformity to the English church, 
and " suffered much at the hands of the Bishops." He came to America in 
his old age, hoping to find here that liberty which was denied at home ; he 
rebelled at the union of church and state which the strong Puritan covenant 
enforced ; and in consequence found himself opposed to the party in power, 
the Massachusetts authorities. After twenty years of conflict, in his old 
age he returned to England, preferring to pass his last days among the 
Puritans there, rather than in New England. His life measures the Puritan 
epoch; he was among the first clerg\-men to be ejected, and he died with 
the English Republic. 

Stephen Bachiler was born in 1560. His parentage and birthplace are 
yet unknown, — Southern England was at that time tull of Bachilers : Hamp- 
shire, Surrey. Sussex, and Kent had distinct lines, while the Channel 
Islands were the home of a Bachiler tamilv of French extraction. Probably 
this French famih", migrating to Southampton and terming an important 
part of the P^rench Protestant church there, was the ancestral line of 
Stephen Bachiler. Certain it is that his litelong connection was with 
Hampshii-tj, and he was allied to the LeMercier and Priaulx families of 
Jersey and Southampton. 

The first record of Stephen Bachiler is in 15S1, when, at 20. he was 
matriculated at the then newly establislied college of St. John, Oxtbrd. on 
Nov. 17, 15S1. Here he took his B. A. in 15S6. St. John's was tbunded

in 1555 by Sir Thomas White, and is now one of the most interesting col- 
leges in Oxford, possessing the most beautiful gardens there. The scholars 
of St. John's were of various opinions, — tlie list includes Archbishops Laud 
and Juxon, and the celebrated noncontormist Calamy. 

From Oxford Bachiler entered the church, and on July 15, 15S7, was 
instituted as \"icar of Wherwell, Hants, being presented to that living by 
William, Lord de la Warr, the ancestor of the nobleman from whom Dela- 
ware derives its name. Wherwell (" Horrell ") is a beautiful village on the 
Test, and was in its most perfect beaut}' when I saw it in June, 1S95. The 
church lies a short distance Irom Wherwell Priory, the home of Mr. 
Iremonger, and a most ideal English country-seat-. The present church, 
though located on the original site, is not the building of Bachiler's time, 
and the Registers before 1624 are missing, so that 1 tbund nothing there 
concerning him. The Bishop's Transcripts at Winchester are not accessi- 
ble. In 1605 Bachiler was "deprived" of his living, — the cause is not 
stated, but it was presumably by the order of the Commission appointed by 
James I, of which Commission Lord de la Warr, a son of the nobleman who 
presented Bachiler to Wherwell, was a member. August 9, 1605, John 
Bate was appointed Vicar of Wherwell, a vacancy existing because of " tlie 
ejection of Stephen Bachiler." 

From 1605 the record of Bachiler's English lit'e is very fragmentary. In 
1610 his son Stephen was matriculated at Magdalen College, Oxlbrd, ••the 
son of a clergyman of Hampshire." In 1621 Adam Winthrop's diary relates 
that he had ''Mr. Bachiler the preacher" to dine with him. Tradition 
says that Bachiler tied to Holland ; Winthrop's History states that lie 
" sutTered much at the hands of the Bishops : " but no record of his lite in 
Holland is extant. Perhaps this suffering and flight were between 1605 and 
1622 ; for in the latter ytav we find him established in Newton Stacy, a 
retired hamlet, a mile and a half east of Wherwell. Here Bachiler bought 
lar.d in 1622 and 1629, accumulating a considerable property : he still 
preached th.e Puritan doctrines, lor we find Sir Robert Payne in 1632 (be- 
ing then of Hants) complaining that his tenants " having been ibrmerly 
misled by one Stephen Bachiler, a notorious inconformist, did demolish 
a consecrated cliapel in Xewton Stacy.*' 

In I6,^o ''The Plough Company of Husbandmen" was formed, and 
obtained a patent to land near the mouth of the Sagadahoc river, in Maine. 
They chose Bachiler as their Pastor, and he also adventured a considerable 
sum in the enterprise, selling his Hampshire property to enable him to do 
this. Through fraud or some underhand dealing the Plough Company

failed, in 16^1- ;^2, after Bachiler had made preparations to come to New 
England and settle in Cambridge (X-ewtown). Before sailing for America, 
Bachiler and his wife, accompanied by his widowed daughter, Ann Sani- 
borne, then " living in ^e Strand,'' obtained permission to go to Holland for 
two months, " to visit his sons and daughters there." One of these sons 
was probably that Samuel Bachiler, chaplain to Sir Charles Morgan's reg- 
iment in Holland, Vho in 1625 published his " Miles Christianus," probablv 
the treatise which Bachiler sent as a git't to Margaret Winthrop in 1640. 
At this period, too, is that grant of arms to Stephen Bachiler, described bv 
Sylvanus ]Morgan in his "Sphere of Gentry," — J 'erf, a flozv in fas \ in 
base the sun rising; or.- This coat INIorgan states was granted to " Stephen 
Bachiler, the first Pastor of the church of Lygonia in New England, the 
plough to signify his ploughing up the fallow ground of their hearts, and the 
sun in allusion to his motto ' Sol Justitiae Exoritur.' " 

Bachiler married twice in England ; all his children of whom we have 
record were by the first wife. His second wite, Helen, accompanied him to 
New England, dving in 1642. 

On March 9, 1632, Bachiler sailed for New England in the William and 
Francis, landing at Boston, June 3, 1632. Winthrop in relating the fact 
states that on the ship were " Mr. Bachiler and Mr. AVelde with their t'ami- 
lies, and many other honest men." Just what tamilv Bachiler brought with 
him is not known, — presumably his second wife and his four grandsons, 
Nathaniel Bachiler, and John, William, and Stephen Samborne. Appar- 
ently none of Bacliiler's own children came. The tailure of the '"Plough 
Company" compelled him to give up his plan of settling in Cambridge, and 
he accepted a call from the church at Saugus (Lynn), where his son-in- 
law, Christopher Hussey, then resided. On June 8, 1632, Bachiler com- 
menced his ministrations, baptising four children ; it is said that when 
Thomas Newhall, the first white child born in Lynn, was presented tor bap- 
tism, Bachiler put him aside, saying, "I will baptise mine own child first," 
meaning Stephen Hussey, his grandson and namesake. 

Shortly after his arrival, Bachiler came into conflict with the authorities, 
for on Oct. 3, 1632, the General Court ordered " that Mr. Batcheler forbear 
exercising his guifts as a pastor or teacher publiquelv in our pattent, nnless 
it be to those he bronght zuith him, for contempt of authoritv, and until some 
scandles be removed."' By " scandles "' is merely meant some report of his 
utterances against the authorities. After five months this order was recalled. 
He was at the conterence of ministers Sept. 17, 1633, and again Dec. 19, 
1634. fCarly in 1635 a general convention of elders was held in Lynn to 





discuss the quarrel between Bachiler and an opposing faction in his church, 
who held that he had no true communion. The council agreed that tiiough 
not at hrst installed in due order, yet Bachiler had a Lrue church there ; 
after a time peace was restored. On May 5, 1635, he became a freeman. 
In January, 1636, he was summoned before the magistrates, because, " com- 
ing out of England with 6 or 7 persons, and having since received in man\- 
more at Sagus ; and contention coming between him and the greatest part 
of his church, he desired dismission for himself and his first members, 
which being granted he with the said six or seven persons presently renewed 
their old covenant, intending to raise another church in Sagus ; whereat the 
most and cheefe of the town beinij otTended tor that it would cross their in- 
tention of summoning rvlr. Peter or some other minister, they complained to 
the magistrates, who forbade him to proceed in any church wa}- until the 
cause were considered b\' the oilier ministers. But he refused to desist. 
Upon his appearance and submission, and promise to remove out of the 
town within 3 months, he was discharged." In February, 1636, Bachiler 
moved to Ipswich, the home of John Winthrop, where he received tifty 
acres of land, but, apparently discouraged b\' his troubles at Saugus, ga\-e 
up the active work of the ministry. This latter tact was mentioned in a kt- 
ter of the period trom a Puritan minister in Englar.d as a result of the rigid 
and bigoted spirit in New England, which deterred many from coming to 
this country. 

Earl}' in 1638, in the winter time, Bachiler tried to form a settlement near 
Yarmouth, on Cape Cod, wliere Wing grand-children afterwards lived, 
and walked there from Ipswich, But, savs Winthrop, " he and his com- 
pany being poor men, gave it over and others undertook it." In the spring 
of 1638 he removed to Newbury, where his son-in-law Hussey and his con- 
nection, Mr. Richard Dummer, were living. The latter had come into con- 
flict with the pov/ers that be, having been one of those disarmed a year 
before because of his adherence to the ibrbidden opinions of Anne Hutcli- 
inson. ' . 

Few men at seventv'-nine years of age would undertake to start a new- 
settlement in .the wilderness, especialh' after thirt^'-three years of conflict; 
but such was the determined nature of Stephen Bachiler. No better spot 
could have been chosen, comprising as it did both fertile farm lands and 
wide stretches of salt and fresh meadows. Bachiler had visited it before 
September, 1638, and in that month hod petitioned the General Court for 
leave to begin a plantation there. On Oct. 9, 163S, wridng to Gov. Win- 
throp and asking liim and Mr. Bradstreet to accompany the little band of 

^-11 > 

;il i" 


settlers, he savs, — " We were there and viewed it cursorilv and we found a 
reasonable meet place, which we shall shew you.'' Bachiler's fellow peti- 
tioners and settlers were mostly tVom the counties of Ilanipsliire and \\'ilt- 
• shire, among them are two of his old parishioners in England, but there were 
also some from Nortblk and SulTolk. 

June 7, 1639, Winnicunnet was made a town, and in th\i fall the name 
was changed to Hampton, at the request of Bachiler and in honor of the 
city of Southampton, then commonly called Hampton, witli which the 
Bachiler family was associated. Stephen Bachiler was tlius the founder 
and father of Hampton, the third settlement in New Hampshire, and for 
years the principal town in that colon}- : he received a grant of 300 acres 
from the town, gave a bell for their church, and bound up his fortunes with 
the new settlement. In 1639 Ipswicli promised him a large grant if he 
would settle with them, but he refused. About this time Hampton received 
a considerable influx of new settlers, many of them from Norfolk and Suf- 
folk, — and a Sutlblk clergyman, Timothy Dalton, was associated with 
Bachiler in the ministry, as Teacher and Curate. From this time dated a 
long period of strife in the Hampton church. Dalton was thirty years 
younger than Bachiler, educated, a sizar, at St. John's, Cambridge, and had 
brought with him many of his old parishioners. He was politic, active, and 
an earnest adherent of the plans of Massachusetts. 

But little definite record is left us of the conflict between pastor and 
teacher ; the town records are mute and the church records are missing. 
Winthrop's History contains little of value concernitig it, and is mainly 
responsible for preserving the slander which it is now thought Dalton and his 
part}' manufactured out of the whole cloth, — that Bachiler solicited the chas- 
tity of a member of his chinxh. Judge Batchelder, in rel'uting this t'alse- 
hood, calls attention to the fact that 710 dcfiule charge was ever brought, 
that the woman's name was never mentioned, and that no investijiation was 
made, although Bachiler earnestly and publicly entreated it. In Bachiler's 
letter to Winthrop he charges Dalton with " having done ail and been the 
cause of all the dishonor that hath accrewed to God, shame to myself and 
greefe to all God's people by his irregular proceeding and abuse of the 
power of the church in his hand, the main part cleaving to him being his 
countrymen and acquaintance in England. The Teac'ners' excommuni- 
cating of me would prove the foulest matter, both tor the cause alleged and 
the impulsive cause (even wrath and revenge)." Winthrop's account 
censures Dalton, •' who indeed had not carried himself in this cause so well 
as became him and acknowledged it.'' In 1643 the magistrates, to whom

■ilM- ' / •■It 


r-; ,ft r/< ■■ "■ MiJ'.t; 



the case was referred, annulled the excommunication, but did not restore 
Bachiler to his pastoral office. To show the general belief in Bachiler's 
innocence, just at this time while the report was rife, two neighboring 
towns, Casco on the north and Exeter on the west, called him to be their 
minister: he at once set their calls before the magistrates, saying that he 
wished to accept neither until he had a full hearing in his case against 
Dalton. The magistrates in replv merely advised him to leave Hampton, 
and he accepted the call to Exeter ; hut as this was within the jurisdiction 
claimed bv the Massachusetts authorities, they were unwilling to have so 
troublesome an opponent within their bounds, and in 1644 the Court ordered 
the Exeter people, on account of their divisions and contentions, to defer 
gathering a church. Winthrop adds that •' Mr. Bachiler had been in three 
places betbre, and through his means, as was supposed, the churches tell 
into such dI\-isions that no peace could be till he was removed." Bachiler, 
who had declined the call to Casco, and prepared to settle in Exeter, 
remained in Hampton. The troubles were growing more bitter. Hampton 
had paid him no salarv, and he petitioned the General Court for some allow- 
ance, but thev rellised to step in, leaving him to sue through the District 
Court. July 15, 1644, Winthrop savs, "-The contentions in Hampton were 
grown to a great height, the uliole town was divided into two factions, one 
with Mr. I^achiler, their late Pastor, and the other with ?^Ir. Dalton, their 
Teacher, both men very passionate and wanting discretion and moderation." 
Just before this time, Bachiler's troubles increased ; his wife died, and his 
house and libr-uy " to the vallieu of £200" were burned. Disheartened, 
he sold his land in Hampton and moved to Portsmouth, whei"e he became a 
private resident, though still preaching occasionally. He hired a " good 
neighbour''' as his housekeeper, and in 164S, at 88 years of age, he married 
her. The match proved most disastrous; in 1650 she was convicted of 
adultery with one Rogers, and sentenced to be publicly whipped and 
branded with the letter " A". Bachiler sued for divorce, but was met with 
the atrocious order that he " and his wife shall live together as man and 
wife, as in this Corte they have professed to do ; and if either desert the 
other the marshall shall apprehend both and bring them to Boston, to be 
kept until the next Corte." The only explanation lor this order is the deter- 
mination to make impossible Bachiler's remaining in the Massachusetts 
Colony ; the attempt was successful. About 1654, accompanied by his 
grandchild and godson, Stephen Samborne, Bachiler left the New ^\ orld, 
from which he had hoped so m.uch, to end his days quietly in England, 
where Cromv.ell and the Puritans held sway. His last act was to' convey 

■• -'^-Mi' >i K» : ;:(!!'.. ' " ■ iht; r 





his American estate to his son-in-law Ilussey, — "April 8, 1673, Edward 
Colcord of Hampton, a^ed 56, and Wm. Fifield of Hampton, testifv that 
when Mr. Stephen Bacheller of Hampton was upon his voyage to England. 
they did hear Mr. Bacheller say unto his son-in-law Mr. Chr. Hussev that 
in consn the said Hussey had little or notliing from him with his daughter 
which was then married to the said Hussey, as also in cons" that this said 
son Hussey & his wife liad been helpful unto him both formerly in fit- 
ting him for his voyage, & for other considerations, he did give to the said 
Hussev all his estate consisting in cattell, household floods & debts, for 
which his gift aforesaid he also gave a deed in writing & delivered a copy 
thereof tothe said Hussey." 

In 1654, Bachiler's children and grand-children were well established in 
England, and tradition says he spent his last days in peace and comfort 
near London. His worthless wife, in 1656, spread a baseless report that he 
" took to himself another wile," but as this is the onlv source trom which 
the story comes, we may well believe it false. 

The last record of this long and stormy career is contained in the tbllow- 
ing : " The ancient Stephen Bachiler of Hampton died at Hackney, a vil- 
lage and parish in Middlesex 2 miles from London, in 1660 in the lootli 
year of his age." 

Perhaps the best proof of the striking character of Stephen Bachiler is the 
belief of many of his descendants that their abilities are derived from him. 
Daniel Webster so believed, and also Caleb Gushing, William Pitt Fessen- 
den, and William Batchelder Greene.

LIST OF i653. 

Robert I'ike, one of the founders of Salisbury, and, in 1653, a lieutenant, petty magistrate, 
and active citizen there, at the age of thirty-six, was informed that the General Court of the 
Massachusetts colony, of which John Endicott was then governor, had passed a law making it 
penal for certain persons to teach religion, — aimed particularly, it was said, at Thomas Macy 
and Joseph Peasley, of Salisbury, his neighbors, — and was properly indignant at such inter- 
meddling with the conscience of Englishmen. Being accustomed to speak his mind. Lieutenant 
Pike declared that "such persons as did act in making that law, did break their oath to the 
country; " for, said he, " It is against the liberty of the country, both civil and ecclesiastical." 
In this he was but echoing the words of Vane and of Cromwell, then in power in England, who 
had said, " Liberty of conscience is a natural right, and he that would have it ought to give 
it." But the Massachusetts bigots held no such liberal doctrine ; and they soon sent an orhcer 
from Boston to the other side of the Merrimack, to bring Pike before them. Once there, the 
general court ordered him to pay a tine of twenty marks (about thirteen pounds sterling) and 
to be distranchised, disqualified from ever holding office, and bound over to good behavior, 
like a criminal. 

Lieutenant Pike was personally known to every rrian in Hampton, and much sorrow and 
wrath was felt there at his unjust sentence. Then, and for years after, he was intiniate with 
Christopher Hussey, the uncle by marriage of Nathaniel Bachiler, and of the three brothers 
Samborne, John, William, and Stephen. Mr. Hussey seems to have been the man who 
advised a petition to the court, asking to have Pike's sentence revoked; it may have been 
drafted by John Samborne. They and their kinsmen signed it, and also the two Daltons, 
brother and nephew of the successor of Bachiler in the ministry, Robert Tucke, the " chirur- 
geon'' of the town, Jasper Blake, Abraham I'erkins, Humphrey Humber, the Marstons, Moul- 
tons, and other substantial citizens, to the number of thirty-eight in all. A larger number of 
signers added their names in Salisbury and Newbury, and a few in Andover and Haverhill: 
but the first page of the rare old paper is given up wholly to Hampton, and the autographs of 
its planters. It is still very legible, and nowhere else is there extant a fuller list of their actual 

This moderate and numerously-signed petition made the Lords Brethren at Boston still more 
angry than they had before been. They had the prudence, however, to repeal the obnoxious 
order ''concerning public preaching without allowance; which order, we understand, is dissat- 
isfactory to divers of the brethren whom we have cause to respect and tender." But they also 
proceeded to punish the petitioners in these svords : 

The Court cannot but deeply resent that so ma-.iy persons, of several towns, conditions and relations, 
should combine together to present such an unjust and unreasonable request as the revoking the sen- 

() .

tence passed the last court against Lieutenant Pike and the restoring him to his proper liberty, without 
any petition of his own, or at least acknowledgement of his offence, fully proved against him ; which 
was no less than defaming this Court and charging them with breach of oath; etc. — which the peti- 
tioners call some words let fall by occasion. The Court doth therefore order, in this extraordinary 
case, that commissioners be ai)pointed in the several tosvns, — namely, [here those for the other towns] 
and Captain Wiggan for Hampton, — who shall have power to call the said petitioners together, or so 
many of them at a time as they think meet, and require a reason of their unjust request, and how they 
came to be induced to subscribe to said petition, and so to make return to the next session, that the 
court may consider further how to proceed -herein. 

This was the preliminary step. After Captain Wiggin had made his report for Hampton, 
and it appeared that Christopher Hussey and his nephew, John Samborne, would not give up 
their right to petition, in any manner and for any cause they saw fit, the Lords Brethren then 
voted (October, 1654), that those persons "who have not given satisfaction, and whose 
names are herein written, shall be summoned to give bond, in ^10 for each man, to give 
answers for their offence before the county court." It does not appear whether our ancestor 
actually gave bonds or not, — probably only in name, if at all. Thomas Wiggin, who made the 
report, was not strictly a resident of Hampton at any time ; but had taken up a large farm in 
Stratham, not yet made into a town, and was rated and paid taxes at Hampton for conven- 
ience, rather than at Exeter ; his son Andrew afterwards (1659) married Hannah Bradstreet, 
daughter of Simon, afterwards governor of Massachusetts, and his wife, the poetess, Anne 
Bradstreet, whose father was Governor Dudley, one of the strictest of the Lords Brethren. 

The Wiggin report, in 1654, was brief and suggestive: 

For Hampton, Captain Wiggin returns that those persons that gave their hands to that petition do 
acknowledge their offence, and humbly desire the court to pass it by; except two persons, who refused 
to make answer, to any satisfaction; whose names (Christopher Hussey and John Samborne) are here 

, It is probable that the uncle and nephew, as heads of the two families of Hussey and Sam- 
borne, took upon themselves the reproach that might attach to disobedience, and allowed the 
younger members to shield themselves from further censure. 

It is extremely doubtful if either William or Stephen Samborne " humbly desired" to be par- 
doned; but they were probably so reported by Captain Wiggin, who wished to bring the mat- 
ter to a peaceful issue. Still less is it likely that another of our ancestors, Edward Gove, 
then registered in Salisbury, but afterwards a citizen of Hampton (in that part which is now 
Seabrook), made many apologies for his boldness in petitioning; for he was the person who, in 
1683, headed a small rebellion against the tyranny of Cranfield and Mason in New Hamp- 
shire, and was sentenced to be hanged, drawn, and quartered for that offense. Gove was 
taken to England, but there pardoned and returned to Hampton, where he died in his bed. 
John Samborne's son Joseph married Edward Gove's daughter, and established himself, about 
1680, on the Sanborn estate in Hampton Falls, which has never since been out of the family. 
John Samborne himself was arrested in October, 16S4. at his house in Old Hampton, for not 
admitting the title of Mason to his property there; the next year he was chosen, with his 
cousin, Nathaniel Bachiler, to represent Hampton in the general assembly at Portsmouth. He 
died in 1692, and his brother William (who was drawn a juryman for the trial, of Gove, in 
1683, but did not sit), died the same year. Major Pike (he rose to that grade after 1653, 
when he was only lieutenant), paid his fine for exercising the privilege of free speech, but 
was not long disfranchised ; his pastor, Mr. Worcester, who preceded the pugnacious John

The Pike Petition. 


Wheelwright as minister of Salisbury, petitioned the general court in Pike's favor, and the court 
voted October 23, 1657, to revoke his sentence. He was soon after elected representative from 
Salisbury, and took his seat at Boston, May 10, 165S. At the same session, but without 
Pike's vote, a second severe law was passed against the Quakers, of which sect by this time 
were Thomas Macy and Joseph Peasley, at whom the law of 1653 was aimed. Macy soon 
went away to Nantucket, of which he and a son of Christopher Hussey were founders, and 
where Pike was one of the landowners. King Charles II, in 1661 revoked the law against the 
Quakers, after several of the sect had been hanged in Boston, and others flogged in other 
towns, — two women, in particular, having been sentenced by Major Waldron of Dover to 
be flogged, in 1656, all the way from Dover to Ipswich, at the cart's tail. When they reached 
Salisbury, Major Pike, through Walter Barefoot, released them, and forbade their whipping 
in his jurisdiction, as the tradition goes. In 16S2, notwithstanding his liberal opinions, he 
was made an assistant, that is, a councillor, of the governor of Massachusetts, and continued in 
that office till he was eighty years old. Transcribed into legible English, but preserving the 
antique spelling, this interesting document of 1653 reads as follows :

Along the lower margin of the page is written by the clerk of the deputies:

WiLLi.VM ToRREY Cleric. 

No date appears on this petition, but it was signed in the years i653-'54. At this time the 
Quakers began to be troublesome to the Puritans, althoui,^h the firs: English Quakers did not 
land in Boston till the summer of 1656; and the first law against them in Massachusetts 
(v/hich still held jurisdiction in the four New Hampshire towns of Hampton, E.xeter. Dover, 
and Portsmouth), was published by beat of drum, October 21, 1636. Its savage preamble ran 
thus : 

Whereas there is a cursed sect of heretics lately risen up in the world, which are commonly called 
Quakers, who take upon them to be immediately sent of God. and infallibly assisted "oy the Spirit to 
speak and write blasphemous opinions, despising government and the order of God in church and com- 
monwealth, speaking evil of dignities, reproaching and reviling magistrates and ministers, seeking to 
turn the people from the faith, and gain proselytes to their pernicious ways, etc. 

■/ i! -; rMijJi "'^n-: .!'V!v 

,,? , 



During tliis short persecution of the Quakers, Christopher Hussey and his family seem to 
have joined the sect, which l^ecame numerous in Seabrook and Salisbury, numbering many of 
the names of Chase, Hussey, Page, Philijrick, Gove, etc. liut John Samborne and his family 
remained in the orthodox church ; they were friendly to liberty and stout in resisting aggres- 
sion, but not given to fanatical ways or strange doctrine. Edward Gove may have been tinc- 
tured with fanaticism; some of his sayings and doings look like it, and he was the progenitor 
of many Quakers, as well as of one race of Sanborns. Coth he and his daughter .Mary's father- 
in-law, John Samborne, were of the class described by Gray as 

Some village Hampden who, with dauntless breast. 
The little tyrant of his fields withstood; 

and both Samborne and Hussey had no hesitation in withstanding the more formidable tyranny 
of the bigots who then bore sway in Boston. The right of petition has seldom been more 
haughtily denied than by these petty rulers who fined Pike, and threatened his neighbors for 
raising a respectful voice in his behalf. 

An examination of the autograph signatures discloses some odd facts. While many of the 
Hampton planters use a chirography resembling Shakespeare's peculiar signature, others, as the 
three Sambornes, have a more clerkly hand, of the early seventeenth century; and still others, 
like Abraham Perkins, Humphry Humber, and Nathaniel Bachiler, write as do men of the 
present age. The latter's signature resembles his grandfather's. Rev. Stephen, as preserved in 
his letters to Governor Winthrop. 

In the same year, 1653, we have the following list of County Tax Rates. Dr. C. H. San- 
born states that he got this list in i860, from the late Josiah Page of Hampton, who made the 
locations :

Until I carefully examined the MvSS. of Dr. Nathan and Dyer H. Sanborn 
I was not aware that any tradition existed among the American Sanborns 
concerning a coat-of-arms. In reading over tlie letters I came upon the 
facts shown in the following quotations, marked i, 2, 3, and 4. Noting 
the reference to arms preserved by the Epsom Sanborns I sent the papers 
to Gen. John B. Sanborn of St. Paul, whose answer is subjoined, marked 5. 
The letters speak for themselves ; even if they do not fj-ovc our right to 
bear the Samborne arms, they form good evidence and s\\o\\ a remarkable 
and interesting coincidence. 

1. Dr. TJio?!ias Sanborn, IVcivport, N. H , March. 1855; to Dr. XatJia)i Sanborn. " Dr. 
E. Sanborn of Anclover has requested me to forward such information as I had obtained while 
in England in 1S53. The name of Samborne is to be found in Bristol (one or two) and two 
or three in London. Their home is in Montesford K^sic') Co. Berks, Hampshire, and Somer- 
setshire. Tlie following description of the Samborne arms may be relied on as correct, — Silver 
(or plain) a chevron sable, beixvecn three mullets gules [or red). The crest is, — A ri^ht hand 
holding a sheaf of arrozos, proper. Another family shows the shield '■'■sable (another azure) a 
lion rampant, or," but I cannot learn that there is more than one crest. The arms are those 
of a Knight or Squire. Herein is inclosed a rude drawing* of the crest and shield. 

2. 7'he Same ; .Ipril 15., 1S56 ; to t/:e Same. "The knowledge I possess is already in your 
possession: altliough very meagre as relates to location, arms, change of name, etc., is from 
pretty good authority. From Burke's " General Armoury" pu'olished by John & John Bernard 
Burke I learn the Samborne family reside in Berks, Hants and Somt. and that they have two 
coats of arms : but one crest is given of which you already possess a description. The second 
[coat] is as follows, — no crest being given: Sable, a lion rampant or. No. i is that repre- 
sented generally in Messrs. Burke's " General Armoury." I regret not being able to give you 
a drawing colored : but for copy under tlie direction of 'SV Drake to the engraver the colour is 
of but little use, as certain lines or dots represent the ditTcrent tinctures, as observed in No. 3, 
the black being represented by lines crossing each otiier, the gold by dots.f 

3. Dr. iVathan Sanborn, Henniker. May 32, 1856.- to Dyer H. Sanborn. "Yours of 

•Unfortunately not preserved. V. C. S. 

fApparently Dr. Sanborn sent sketches of (i) the chevrDii and inuUets ; (2) the crest ; (j> the lion ramp.-int.

John, William, and Stephex Samdorxe (for so they spelt the name) 
were sons of an English Saniborne (probabh' William of Brimpton, 
Berks.) and Anne, daughter of Rev. Stephen Bachiler. 

Ann Bachiler's husband died about 1630, tor Mr. Waters printed in Reg- 
ister, July, 1891, the following extract from '^Licenses to Pass heyo7id 
Seas: " __..._■ 

" xxij Junii 1631: Steephen Bachiller aged 70 yeres resident at South Stonham. South' & 
xixor Hellen, of age xlviij yeres, Vss fflushing to visit their sons and daughters there : and so to 
return w'^-^ in two monetlis. Ann Sandburn of age "^o yeres, ivid'-yu.<e, resident in y^ Strand. 
vss vlishing."" 

The three sons of Anne Saniborne are said to have come to America with 

their grandfather Bachiler in 1632, but apparentlv their mother did not 

come over; nor l\ave we any trace of the three sons until 1639 in Hampton, 

^2. Lieut. John Samborne, born 1620 (Deposition in Xort'. Co. P'iles). 

. Probably in Hampton in 1640, since he was then granted a house-lot and 

'■ a tract of land there. In 1643 his name is signed to a Hamplori petition: 

and from this date the records contain frequent mention of him. 

23^'^ -jrd rno. 1645 (Xorf. Co. Deeds I), John Samborne of Hampton sells to Thos. Marston, 

' "for a valuable consideration, fower acres of fresh marsh, bounded by the salt marsh of John 

Cram, now in the hands of Rodger Shaw; by that of W™ Marston : by tlie upland of John 

Samborne, a highway to the north." Witness, Jos : .Mason, Humph.rey Humbc-r, .Abraham 


December 23, 1645, ^^^^ shares of the Common were granted to John Samborne. His house 
in Hampton was next to that of Stephen Bachiler, across the road from .Meeting House Green. 
■", and nearly opposite the old meeting house. 

/.-■ In 1S47 the Jury of Norfolk County presented case vs. " Will : Palmer, for challenging John 
.- ' Samboine into ye iield, — witnesses John Samborne & PIdw. Colcord."" 

In 1647 Rev. Stephen Bachiler left Hampton, and on .April 20, 1647 (Rock. Co. Reg., xiii., 
221), he made the following conveyance: 

Know all Men by these Presents that I Stephen Bachiler late of Hampton, in Co. of Xor-

At HamptonCourt, 26"^ 7*-'i mo. 164S, John Samborne was plaintiff in an action for trespas 
against Robert Lord, but was nonsuited, and defendant allowed los. 6d. for unjust molestation. 
- 24"^ 2°'! mo. 1649, John Samborne was on the ''Jury of Tryalls" at Salisbury Court. In 
1650 he was one of the Hampton selectmen, g'-''- 2°<i mo. 1650, he sued Walter Abbott at 
Salisbury Court for debt of ^5. 7. 6 due tor bill assigned to him by ^P Steven Bachiller. .At 
Hampton Court, 3'''^ S*-'' mo. 1650, he, Vj Hussey & Tho. Chase were released from bond tliey 
gave for Edw. Colcord's appearance.* 

In 1651, on petition from Hampton, the General Court (.Mass. Col. Rec, iii., 253; iv., 67) 

* Coicord was a friend or relative of :iie Bachilers and Sambornes ; for full account of hini see N. H. Prov.

orders John Samborne & Edw. Colcord to return to thi.'ir owners until they should exhibit some 
proper power of attorney, all goods &c. taken by them on pretence of being authorized by Rev. 
Stephen Bachiler. 

January, 1634, Jolin Samborne and Wm. Estow were appointed " to view the upland and 
medow on this side Strawberry Bank bounds, to ascertain wlio were the proprietors and what 
their titles were."' In this year Christopher Hussey and Jolin Samborne alone in Hampton 
refused to withdraw their petition to remit Lieut. Pike's fine; see our chapter on '■'■Civil 
Troubles in Hantptony 

February 2, 1657. John Samborne was chosen a Selectman, but exempted. March 30, 
1657, he was appointed on a committee to see to the building of a house for Rev. Mr. Cotton. 

His familiarity with the town records and boundaries led to his being chosen on all commit- 
tees to examine old grants, or to establish boundary lines. Thus in 1651, and again in 165S, 
he was chosen on a committee to "join with the Town Clerk to examine all the grants and 
appointments of lands, highways and the like; and to perfect the same in the Town Book.*' 

In 1661 John Samborne was again a selectman, and on March 16 it was voted " that Thos. 
Marston and Willi : .Moulton shall join w"' John Samborne to hire the present schoolmaster* 
for another year, pvided they shall not exceed the som of £26 for his year's wages, nor he be 
more difficult in his pay than last year."' 

In 1663 he was chosen on committees to examine the allotment of the commonage, and to 
lay out the " New Plantation."' 

April 12, 1664, at Salisbury Court he was foreman of the "Jury of Tryalls." At Hampton 
Court, October, 1664, it was voted, — " Whereas John Samborne was legally chosen by the 
Military Company at Hampton to be their ensign, — it appearing to this Corte that he is not yet 
a freeman, referred to the Gen^' Corte for confirmation."' 

Selectman again in 1665, — on June 20, he, " with Sam^i Dalton, Town Clerk, and M'' Sea- 
borne Cotton the Pastor was chosen to express to the Com" in writing the views of the people 
of Hampton and to assert their rights in the lands claimed by Mason."' 

May, 1666, John Samborne was made a freeman (Mass. Col. Rec. iv., 367). In 1666, 
1667, and 1669, ''.NP John Samborne (also called E7isicrn') with Capt. Chr. Hussey and 
M'' Sanv^ Dalton were chosen and ratified by the Court as commissioners of small causes for 
the town of Hampton. "" 

Selectman again in 166S ; in 1669 chosen as Agent by the town of Hampton in the boundary 
dispute with Portsmouth. Also appointed to look into the question of Exeter bounds. In 
1670, sells to Samuel Tilton for ^26. five acres of salt marsh on the south side of the Falls 

Chosen Selectman in 1671, and appointed a "Commissioner in behalf of the country, to 
.work with the Selectmen in making the Country Rate for the next six months according to 

"April 25, 1672, Capt. Hussey, Ensign John Samborne and M*" Dalton were appointed to 
treat with M'' Dudley and M^ John Oilman to issue all differences betwixt the inhabitants of 
Hampton and Exeter concerning land, pvided that the said M"" Dudley & M' Gilman shall pro- 
cure the like power from the town of Exeter."' 

Sept. 29, 1676. John Samborn Sen. of Hampton, Norfolk Co. for naturall affection & 

•John Barbhan', II. U. 165S. 

.•« '■ . I 



ffatherly Love for his son John Samborn of H. & for other good causes, as also in consideration 
of his marregg with Judeth }•= Daughter of Trusterm Coffin of nubery gave him upland c'v: mea- 
dows in H. which was granted & laid out to my ff.ither in Law Robert Tuck, 40 acres of up- 
land & 7 acres of meadow, 10 acres of salt marsh, i share of comonage above s^, valued bv es- 
temation to be wortii ^150. 

Selectman in 1674-5, 167S-9. At Salisbury Court, Nov. 14. 1676. John Samborne was 
Foreman of the Grand Jury. As Ensign of the Hampton Company in 1677, he signed a peti- 
tion to ALij. Gsn. Denison, asking for help. Commissioned Lieutenant of Hampton forces, 
October 15, 1679. (Mass. Col. Kec. v., 252.) 

When Charles IL decided to make New Hanipshire a Royal Province in 1679, Sir \V. War- 
ren wrote to the Lords of Trade that in Hampton the men most eminent and best qualified for 
His Majesty's Council were Sam' Dalton, Capt. Hussey, John Samborne Sc Nath' Wver. 
(State Papers, Colonial, i670-"So.) 

In the Cranfield and Mason persecutions we find that John Samborne suffered : 

" W™ Fifield &c. depose that in Oct 1684 being at John Samborne Sen-'"* house, when Robert 
Mason, Sherlock the ALarshall and James Leach came to give Mason possession, — when Sam- 
borne not opening the door. Leach broke it open and Sherlock took Samborne prisoner, when 
Mason told the people openly, — This is what you shall all come to."' (N. H. Prov. Papers, i., 


Also in Capt. Henry Dow's diary we find, — •' Bro Sarnbourne put in prison, 21 Oct. 1684. 
Capt. Sherburne & I compared a copie with the original execution ; & there was no return 
made upon it the ist Nov. 16S4." 

John Samborne's signature appears on the petition ngainst Crarfitld in 16S5. ^^ ^'"''^ ^'<^^''" 
he was a Representative, — 'At a meeting of the free holders of Hampton, Sept. 24, 16S5. 
M'' Nath" Weare, Lt. Jolin Samborne and Nalh" Bachiler Sen' were chosen to ser\-e in the next 
General Assembly. '■ (Register, vi. 56.) 

March 26, 1691. John Samborn Sen. gave his son Richard (on condition that he should 
pay 30 pounds as he (John) should hereafter order in his will) the hous where Richard dwells 
t the home lot and orchard, Richard to have the side next to Wm. bro. of John's land, John 
reserving h acre out of that end next Daniel Lamprey's: Rich, to have ^ the fresh meadow

Col. George Mayhew .Moulton, commander of the Second Regiment of Infan- 
try, Illinois National Guard, is one of the most enterprising and successful busi- 
ness men of Chicago. His life story, both in its business, social, and military 
aspects, is a remarkable record of indefatigable energy and progress. Colonel 
Moulton, son of Joseph Tilton .Moulton and Jane .Maria Babcock, was born .March 
15, 185 1, in Read.sboro, Bennington county, Vt.. and came, at the age of two, 
with his father's family to Chicago, where he has since lived. He graduated 
from the Central High school in 1868 and joined his father in his business, that 
of building the high grain elevators. Every detail of this important business he 
learned, and also the trade of carpenter. In 1870, he accompanied his father 
to Duluth, and aided in the construction of the first grain elevator in that sec- 
<- tion. When the elevator was completed, he engaged with the owners to ope- 

rate it for a year ; but before that period had been transferred to superintend the 
erection of an elevator at Stillwater. Ever since then. Colonel Moulton has 
been engaged in the building of those immense and soaring edifices, the "agri- 
cultural banks," wherein is annually hoarded the country's wealth of corn. 

The excellence, both in design and construction, of the elevators put up by 
J. T. Moulton & Son soon became widely known. The building contracts of 
the firm extended from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and its reputation and busi- 
ness grew so that it stood without a peer in this special line of archiiecti'.r.T.l

work. In Chicago, tlie famous Illinois Central A. with a capacity of 1,000.000 
bushels of grain, and Illinois Central 13, with a capacity of 1,600,000 bushels. 
are lofty monuments of the building ability of Moulton & Son, and their ele- 
vators also stand in New York. Baltimore, Detroit, Minneapolis, Kansas City, 
Buffalo, St. Louis, East St. Louis, Toledo and East Toledo. O., Portland, Me., 
Norfolk, Va., Tacoma, Wash., Washburn and West Superior, Wis., Galena 
City, Union City, and other places,— affording in all, capacity for 44,800,000 
bushels of grain. With all this, George .M. Moulton has by no means confined 
himself to the business of building elevators. His enterprises have been many 
and various. In 1877, he began with George H. Johnson the manufacture and 
application of fireproof material for buildings. Three years later the company was 
organized and incorporated, and now the Pioneer Fire-proof Construction Com- 
pany, as it is called (it was originally the Ottawa Tile Company), owns the largest 
clay-manufacturing establishment in the West, with Colonel Moulton as president 
and leading stockholder. The Colonel is also president and leading stockholder 
of the Moullon-Starrett Construction Company (organized by him under another 
name in 1894) ; it contracts for the construction of large buildings, of which it 
has erected several, including the fine Fisher building in Chicago, the Guaranty 
building in Buffalo, the Onondaga Savings Bank building in Syracuse, and the 
Columbus Union StiUion in Columbus, O. Colonel .Moulton was also president 
of one of the largest cold storage companies in Chicago, and somehow found 
time to be ofikially and financially interested in the River Bank Coal Company, 
the Chicago Deposit Vault Company, the Commerce Vault Company, and the 
Medinah Temple Company. 

As to his military record, .Mr. Moulton was in 1SS6 commissioned major in the 
Second Regiment, I. N. G. He resigned his commission four years afterwards, 
when Colonel Wheeler (at whose solicitation he had entered the service) retired 
from command of the corps; but in February, 1894, he was unanimously elected 
to the command of the regiment, which is the largest in the state, and which has 
attained a high reputation. Colonel Moulton commanded it during its duty out- 
ing of July and August, 1894, occasioned by the trouble arising from the railroad 
strike, and also in the Spanish -American War of 189S. He still holds the com- 
mand. His deep interest in the corps and his close application to the duties 
of his office have highly increased the efiiciency and the soldierly appearance of 
the corps, and both men and orficers hold him in high esteem. 

In his club relations and society affiliations and attainments Colonel Moulton 
is, in a manner, a marvel. He is a member of the Union League Club, Chicago 
f Athletic Association, the Buffalo Club, .Miltona Club. Sons of Vermont, Chicago 

Art Institute, Field Columbian .Museum .Association, and Illinois Society of the 
Sons of the Revolution, being a member of the state board of managers of the 
latter society. He is a specially- enthusiastic Mason, and has taken the follow- 
ing degrees in Masonry :

the State of Illinois, Oct. 25, 1S75, afterwards affiliating with St. John's Con-- 
clave Premier of that Order. He also holds membership in Queen Esther Chap- 
ter, Order of the Eastern Star, and Medinah Temple, Ancient Accepted Order 
of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. Nor has he been an idle member of these 
various bodies; on the contrary, he has been an almost constant, faithful, and 
efficient office bearer, serving with fidelity in many of the humbler official posi- 
tions, and with distinction in many of the most important in the gift of Masonrv. 
Among the stations he has filled are the following : In the Lodge, Senior Dea- 
con, 1877, Junior Warden, 1S78 and 1S90, Senior Warden, 1S91, and Worship-

1895 ; and at Boston was elected Grand Captain-General for term ending Octo- 
ber, 189S. He is a stockholder in the .Masonic Fraternity Association of Chi- 
cago. In 1S84, he became one of the incorporators of the Knights Templar 
and Masons' Life Indemnity Company, a fraternal cooperative insurance com- 

V ^-Mftif-r-i 


pany, of which he was vice-president until 1S90, when he succeeded the late Dr. 
Allen as president, retainin;^ that office at the present time. Managed with 
ability, this company has now twenty-five millions of insurance in force, and has 
enjoyed a steady growth that is a source of much pride to Colonel Moulton. In 
1885, he became one of the incorporators of the Illinois .Masonic Orphans' 
Home, and was elected president of the association, filling that office until 1S90, 
when he retired voluntarily, remaining, however, on the board of trustees. 
During the presidency of Colonel .Moulton, the association acquired a property 
which is valued at $50,000, and is practically free from debt. The Home is in 
practical operation, and affords a delightful protection to a considerable number 
of dependent orphans of deceased .Masons. 

Colonel Moulton was married .March 12, 1873, ^0 Miss Anna Florence Gar- 
land. They have two children, Dorothy Edith (m., 1898. John H. .Murphy) and 
Arthur Garland. They live at No. 21 19 Calumet avenue, on the site of the old

Bowdoin College in 1S24. He studied medicine and practised in hospitals 
of various cities, including New Haven and Philadelphia. He also spent 
several months in travel in this country and Central America. 

In 1830, he began the practice of his prot"ession in Belgrade. Me., where 
he met and married Emeline Pitts, daughter of ^Maj. Thomas Pitts ot Bos- 
ton, and niece of the Hon. John Pitts of Belgrade, with whom she was then 
living. She was a descendant of Judge Simon Lynde (Massachusetts 
Superior Court), James Bowdoin, and James Pitts of the Kings Council. 

In 1836, Dr. Benjamin Sanborn removed to Falmouth, Me., where he 
practised his profession as long as his health permitted. He died Feb. 27, 
1846, after a long and painful illness, leaving a widow and seven children.

391. James William (150) S.vnborn, born at Falmouth, Me.. April 
19, 1813, was the son of William Sanborn, ?vl. D. In youth he gave evi- 
dence of great energy of character and keen powers of observation. 

He chose for his first venture a seafaring lite, and made trequent voyages 
to the West Indies, and also crossed the Atlantic ocean repeatedly. He 
went to Michigan in 1S35, ^^^ i" company with Abner Coburn (afterward 
governor of Maine), Charles Merrill of Detroit, and Joseph L. Kelsey. 
located 25,000 acres of pine land in St. Clair and Sanilac counties. Mr. 
Sanborn, then but twentv-two years old, was lelt in charge ot the invest- 
ment. In 1S36, he established himself in Metamora, Lapeer county, Irom 
which district he was elected to the legislature in 1S3S and again in 1S46, 
and in 1S53 trom St. Clair count}' ; and in 185S he was chosen commis- 
sioner of the state land otiice.

In 1845, he associated with himself in business, as co-partner, his brother- 
in-Liw, Alvah Sweetser, also of Maine. Thev purcliased large tracts of 
pine land on the Saj^inaw and Muskegon rivers and their tributaries, the 
Au Sable and Pine rivers, on Thunder Bay and ilie Upper Peninsula. In 
1S47, thev removed to Port Huron, and under the firm name of Sweetser &. 
Sanborn carried on an extensive business in lumbering, merciiandise. and 
real estate until the death of Mr, Sweetser in 1S64, after wiiich, with Mrs. 
Sweetser as partner, the business was carried on in tlie name of J. W. San- 
born & Co. until the death of both during the year 1870. 

As a legislator, Mr. Sanborn evinced the same habits of industry and 
faithfulness which so eminently characterized him in private life. In busi- 
ness matters he had a quick perception and was far-seeing, always com- 
bining promptness with caution. Just in his dealings, he expected and 
exacted the same trom others. Strong in his likes and dislikes, he never 
failed in proving the sincerity of his feelings to those he once recognized as 
friends. He numbered among his intimate associates many young men. 
who were indebted to him tor friendly counsel as well as for substantial aid 
in their business undertakings. ' ' ■ - ' 

Earnest in politics, as in other matters, and originally a AVhig, Mr. San- 
born stood among the foremost organizers of the Republican party. He 
represented his district as a delegate to that convention whose proceedings 
"under the oaks at Jackson" have been accorded a page not only in the 
annals of state, but also of national history. To this party he ever atter 
gave active allegiance and support. 

He was constant in attendance upon the worsJiip of the Congregational 
church, of which he was a member and trustee, contributing largely to its 
management and support. He married (i) 1839, Hannah Maria Rossman.

April 13, 1870, at his home in Port Huron.

and vigorous state.

39S. Cu.MMiNGS (152) Sankorn, like SO many of our kinsfolk, had 
lor his birthplace a New England farm. He was born at North Haver- 
hill, N. H., Jan. 15, 1799; and there he worked with his father until he 
arrived at man's estate. Although thus circumstances seemed to declare in 
favor of a plain and iiomespun existence, his genius carved out a different 
career. He was a bright scholar, and, according to Mrs. Evans, his niece, 
now living at the age of 80, — " he earlv showed that teaching was his forte : 
and he knew how to make his instructions valued. His discipline was 
admirable, and yet always pleasantly enforced. His pupils loved him, 
and," IMrs. Evans says, " he was the most gentlemanly man I ever saw." 
After having taught at Staten Island and other places, in 1S33 he moved to 
Michigan, and at once entered upon his profession as a teacher in that new 
country. Almost at once, however, his quick and energetic mind saw the 
great opportunities in the future ; he placed the money earned by teaching in 
the Carleton district school during the winters of i833-'34. ^" "^^^' ventures. 
Mr. Timothy Barron of St. Clair, Mich., says: " In the fall and winter of 
1835, ^^''- Sanborn built the water sawmill on Pine river, six miles north of 
Vicksburg, now Marysville, Mich., also a store in ^^arysville ; he ran the 
mill two or tliree years, then he sold it with the adjoining land, taking his 
pay in lumber and the sawing of lumber. In the early forties, he moved his 
store of goods to Port Huron, and invested in pine lands near there ; built 
a steam sawmill there, and was a pioneer in the lake transportation busi- 
ness ; he associated with himself in business his nephew, Martin S. Gillette, 
and his brother-in-law, Allen Fish, Jr. : he afterwards built the steam mill 
on the lake shore, three miles below Lexington. Nov. 14, 1S39, ^""^ married 
Charlotte, widow of Thomas Robertson, and daughter of Allen Fish. His 
ability and perseverance early met with their reward ; he earned the con- 
fidence of his tellow-citizens, and was by them chosen as state representa- 
tive. He served as postmaster of Port Huron trom 1S46 to 1S49. The 
Port Huron Herald says: " He was full of business activitv, and widelv 
known as an honorable and upright man." He was over six t'eet in height, 
of splendid proportions, straight and handsome. He carried himself 
proudl}', with no stoop ; and was always well dressed. 

Mr. Sanborn's undoubted ability brought him substantial returns in a 
worldly sense: he accumulated a large property, and was one of the most 
prosperous and influential men in Michigan. After years of successful 
enterprise in the new lield, he made a visit to his New England birth- 
place, in 1S52. Beiore he lett Port Huron, he made his will, disposing 
judiciously of his large estates ; amongst other bequests was one to the pub-

lie library of Port Huron, thus helping in giving a start to what is now a

my grandfather's death my father lived with a grandmother, Mrs. Miriam 
Satridge, until he was thirteen years old, when she died, and he was under 
the care of an uncle who was a Sliaker ; he was placed by his uncle as an 
apprentice, I think, in Exeter, to a tailor, but was not satisfied to remain 
with him, and ran away and came to Westboro'. I conclude that he stayed 
some time with this tailor, as he went into business for himself after he came 
here. My father was not inclined to speak of his relatives, and probably 
for some reason did not wish to communicate with them, as he never did ; 
he felt a great deal of bitterness toward Shakers in freneral, and was much 
dissatisfied with his uncle."' He married (i) ?vlarch 28, 1793, Elizabeth

Dr. Nathan Sanborn, of Henniker, X. H. 

"The father of the Sanborn Genealogy." 



seven Sanborn generations, which did not assume to be an exhaustive study 
of the family, but was the beginning of a more important work. Tliis 
tabulation was printed in the " New England Historic-Genealogical Regis- 
ter" for July and October, 1S56, and was afterwards reprinted in pamphlet 
form. Whitmore, in his "American Genealogies," commends it for its 
sj'stem and clearness. 

To the completion of a larger genealogy Dr. Sanborn now bent his best 
energies. Dyer H. Sanborn, his collaborator, says of him: "He prose- 
cuted the work during the last years of his life with unremitting ardor, and 
had arranged nearly 2,500 names in consecutive order for publication, hop- 
ing to send the book to press in May or June, 1S59. He much regretted 
that this labor, the favorite idea of his life, could not have been linished 
while he was still living, but a wise Providence ordered it otherwise. A 
spirit of calm resignation pervaded his mind, and he met death with com- 
posure and Christian resignation. His last words were, ' It is well, — 
well, — well.' Dr. Sanborn had been a great sufferer tor more than twenty 
years, and had been on the confines of the grave more than once. He was 
in the railroad accident at Xorwalk, Conn., in 1S54, when the train fell into 
the river and fifty passengers were killed, among them Drs. Pearson and 
Bartlett, his intimate friends. He was also in a serious collision at Lake 
Village, N. H. At a post-mortem examination, it appeared that almost 
every inch of the lungs' surface adhered to the pleura; the profuse hemor- 
rhages to which he was subject were caused by occasional separation ot 
these, causing intense suffering."' 

Besides his "Sanborn Genealogy," Dr. Sanborn was also the author of 
a volume of" Occasional Poems," published by his children. He married 
Oct. 2, 1816, Sens, daughter of Thomas Lancaster of Sanbornton, who was 
born May 29, 1797. Dr. Sanborn died in Henniker, N. H., Dec. 15, 185S.

774. Rev. Jacob (29S) Sanborn, born in Unity, N. H., Ma}' 16, 
1788. As a result of pious training, he early felt attracted to the ministry, 
and joined the Methodist church at iS years of age. In order to test his 
convictions, he preached one year at his own expense ; his labors proving 
successful, he joined in' 1812, the INIethodist Conference. From that time 
until 1850, he gave himself up to his life work, filling, in thirty-eight years 
of ministerial duty, many important pulpits in New England. He preached 
in Portland, Me., in Exeter, X. H., and in Providence, R. I. He was for 
four years Presiding Elder in the New Hampshire district. In Massachu- 
setts, he preaciied in manv cities. After his regular labors as a pastor had 
ceased, he continued frequently to occupy the pulpit until 1863, closing his 
ministerial career w-here he began it, fifty-two years before. As a pul- 
pit orator, he had marked ability ; a man of dignity and of noble stature, 
fine voice, clear thought, and impressive utterance. In business affairs, 
he was a model of punctuality and good faith. The soul of honor him- 
self, it grieved him much to hear of improvidence, of business dishonor, 
or even of apparent disregard of pecuniary obligations, in any one bearing 
the Christian name. By strict economy, he was able often to fill out from 
his own limited means, the inadequate salaries so common in his time. 
During all his career, he contributed to the charities of his church, and 
never, even in his old age, received any aid from them. A stalwart and 
brave relifrious teacher, he belonged to that heroic age of the New England 
Methodist church, and was prominent among the moral heroes of his day. 
He married (i) Dec. 25, 1817, Fanny Eastman of LandafT, N, H., born 
July I, 1793, died May 14, 1825; (2) June 21, 1S26, Eliza Robinson of
