Families of the Children of Hope2 Washburn and Mary Stiles

 

 

            The three children of Hope Washburn and Mary Stiles who left descendants settled in the town of Derby, New Haven County, Connecticut Colony. William Washburn, the second son, left many descendants, but Samuel Washburn, the third son, has fewer descendants. This file will be continued into the fourth generation. This is a work in progress, and I will add to it as new information is uncovered.

        Saml Washborn, Wm Washborn, and Jno. Jnoson signed an undated agreement of Derby landowners made in about 1696 in Derby regarding additional land granted to Jno. Davies Senior to build a barn on,[44] the brook the runs by Samuel Washbun’s land was mentioned on 13 Jan. 1696/7,[45] John Johnson and Samuel Washbon were chosen as a fence viewers for the east side of the river on 27 Dec. 1697,[46] on 29 Apr. 1698 William Washbon, John Johnson and Samuel Washbone signed an agreement with other landholders in Derby to allow Ebenezer Harger a rod of land in Derby,[47] a pasture was laid out to Samuel Washbens near his house in Derby on 10 May 1698, with the stipulation that “any man has liberty to go therow this pasture with a cart provided they put up the fenc againe,”[48] in Jan. 1699 John Johnson, William Washbon, and Samuel Washbon again signed an agreement for John Davis Senior to receive half a rod of land in Derby to build a barn on,[49] and at the same time they signed an agreement for Josiah Baldwin to receive a homestead of 3 acres of land in Derby.[50] A piece of land was laid out to the widow Griffin on the southwest side of Samuel Washbons house that was formerly granted to her husband Samuel Griffin on 22 Apr. 1699.[51] On 18 Jan. 1700/1701 Wm Washborn, Jno.

        Samuel Washburn died in 1724 in Derby, and Susanna remarried again to (___) Northrop before Dec. 1724. In Feb. 1724 she was called “Susanna Wooster alias Washborne,” and in Dec. 1724 she was called “Susanna Northrop, lately Washborne.”[59]
