First Generation

There is a NEW first generation found by Dr. Amy Harris and Marsha Berry on June 22, 2006.   John Bobbet b. 1579 has a father named William and a mother named Katheryn Bobbet.  Sources for this information are found in two wills.

Original Will of John Bobbet/Bobbett of Blaxhall, Suffolk 28 January 1577

Will of John Bobbet/Bobbett of Blaxhall, Suffolk   28 January 1577 Transcribed by Dr. Amy Harris

and

Original Will of William Bobbet

Will of William Bobbet Transcribed by Dr. Amy Harris and probated in 1582

Email from Marsha Berry: " Dr. Amy Harris and I both strongly conclude that William Bobbet 1582 Will is the father of my John Bobbet chr 20 Jan 1579 Grundisburg, Suffolk, England and that his mother is Katheryn and his siblings are Dorothie Bobbet born about 1580 and Alice Bobbet born about 1581.  

"It is interesting that in William Bobbet's June 1582 Will, he is a young married man that is ill and not expecting to live and is very worried wanting his children to be raised to be honest and be healthy by his wife.  The Will was probated 2 months later, in August 1582.  

"To quote Dr. Amy Harris in her Tuesday, 20 June 2006 email:   'The William Bobbet who was buried in Grundisburg in 1582 left a Will.  I copied his Will.  His wife is Katheryn and his children are John, Dorothie, and Alice, all of whom are under 21 years old when he wrote the Will in June 1582.  Dorothie and Alice are also under 16 years old. 

 'He emphasizes that is wife is to maintain and care for his children [leading me to believe that they are quite young].   I think this is a possible father for your John Bobbet.  Your John was born in 1579, so it is possible that Dorothie and Alice were born between 1580 and 1582.  I think this because Dorothie and Alice are probably listed in order of their age [a common practice in Wills] and John is listed first [as sons often were, even if younger than their sisters].  However, I think John is older than the two girls.  I think this because the land and property in Grundisburgh is left to their mother Katheryn until John turns 21.  The girls inherit money that John is supposed to pay them from the estate when they reach 21.  If he were younger than them, the Will would have stipulated that their mother pay them as she would still be in control of the property if John were under 21.'

Read an email from Marsha Berry that explains the John Lead name conception.

 

Hello Keith,
 
The VA Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500's-1900's, 2005 Version
and 2006 Version referring to page 146 of Cavaliers and Pioneers are
included in the:
 
3 pages
 
On page 146 of the Cavaliers and Pioneers Patient Book 6, is an
Indentured Wm. Bobett that came from another part of England as did
36 others to work off their transportation, etc., to Thomas Batts
in Henrico County, Virginia sometime after Batts obtained his 8
April 1674 Land Grant.  This Wm. Bobett Is Not related and Is Not
my/our Immigrant Ancestor.  He seems to drop out of the picture and
is presumed to have returned to England, but did he leave or return
or did his descendants come to America?
 
Then 126 years later than 1674 there is the William Bobbett of the
31 Jul 1800 Land Grant in Grayson County, Virginia and this line says
they are related to my/our William Bobbett the Immigrant.
 
Our Immigrant Ancestor William Bobbett from Suffolk County, England
is included in the:
 
2 pages
 
My/our Immigrant Ancestor William Bobbet was not indentured, but had
a 27 October 1673 Land Grant for 96 acres in Charles City County,
Virginia and settled there, arriving in early January 1674.  He
transported 2 persons: John Lead and Richard Tonstall.
 
You already have the original Library of Virginia handwritten William
Bobbett 27 October 1673 Land Grant in Charles City County, Virginia online
on my site area.
 
Thank you Keith.
 
Regards,
Marsha Berry
