b. circa 1615
Birth*circa 1615Rachel ______ was born, as calculated from her reported age at immigration, circa 1615 in England.1
Marriage*She married Francis Newcomb in England.1
Immigration*1635Rachel and Francis Newcomb sailed from London to New England with their two children, Rachel and John, on the ship Planter, Nicholas Trarice, Master, in 1635. Francis, aged 30, stated his occupation as husbandman. His wife Rachel was 20, their daughter Rachel 2 1/2 and son John 9 months. Newcomb's conformity was certified and he took the Oath of Allegiance on 6 April 1635.1
Residence*The Newcomb family settled in the outlying part of Boston which became Braintree.1
Religion*16 February 1639Rachel Newcomb was admitted to the church in Boston on 28 February 1635/36 and Francis Newcomb was dismissed to the church in Braintree on 16 February 1639. There was some doubt as to his wife's conformity to the tenets of the Boston faith, however, as on the same date that Newcomb was dismissed, apparently in good standing, a committee was chosen to inquire into the spiritual state of eleven persons in Braintree among whom was "Rachel ye wife of Francis Newcomb."1

Family 1

William Hooper b. c 1617, d. 5 Dec 1678
Children1.Hannah Hooper b. 31 Mar 1662;

From a timing standpoint, Hannah could have been the daughter of William's first wife Elizabeth or his second wife Ruth. Ruth Hooper, according to the source, signed a document for the relinquishment of her dower on 14 Dec 1664, so had likely married William prior to that date. No assignment of any of the children's mother was provided in the source, and our assignments have not yet been proven, although Hannah's mother may be the most uncertain. In this project Hannah has been "assigned" to Ruth, our rationale resting solely on the number of years between the births of the children; three before Hannah and two after1
2.Elizabeth Hooper b. 20 Aug 1665, d. 3 Jan 1699;

Although not confirmed in the source, it is suspected by this researcher that Ruth, William's second wife, was Elizabeth's mother because Ruth Hooper signed the document for the relinquishment of her dower on 14 Dec 16641
3.Thomas Hooper+ b. 2 Apr 1668;

Although not confirmed in the source, it is suspected by this researcher that Ruth, William's second wife, was Thomas' mother because Ruth Hooper signed the document for the relinquishment of her dower on 14 Dec 16641

Sarah ______1,2,3

d. before 6 March 1709
Marriage*circa 1670She married John Leonard, son of Solomon Leonard and Sarah Chandler, circa 1670.2,4,5,1,3
Relationship Note*Sarah's maiden name has not been identified, however we do know that she was not a daughter of Roger Chandler as claimed in the Leonard Memorial source. Sarah's husband John Leonard was a son of that Sarah Chandler and Solomon Leonard, and a grandson of Roger Chandler, so it was John's mother, and not his wife, who was Roger's daughter.6,3
(Wife) Deathbefore 21 November 1699Sarah became a widow when John Leonard died before 21 November 1699, the date of the inventory of his estate.7,8
Probate*23 January 1699/0The estate of Sarah's husband John Leonard, late of Bridgewater, was officially opened for probate in Plymouth County on 23 January 1699/0. Sarah and their son Joseph Leonard were appointed administrators of his estate.6
Estate*30 August 1701 According to the Chilton Mayflower source, in the division of her husband's estate, Sarah was to receive her thirds and son John, the eldest son's share. Other shares were allocated to sons Joseph, Enoch, Moses and Josiah and to their daughter Sarah when she reached the age of 18. On 30 August 1701 the widow Sarah and her sons John, Joseph and Josiah signed receipts. Unfortunately, the digitized version of his probate file contained no documents outlining the division of his estate or any receipts.6,9
Marriage28 July 1708She married second widower Thomas Washburn, son of John Washburn and Elizabeth Mitchell, on 28 July 1708 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).10,11,12,13,14
Death*before 6 March 1709She died before 6 March 1709 when her son John sold the family homestead to his brother Moses. John had received the property from his father's estate, although it was to be held with his mother during her lifetime.6,15

Compiled by John A. Maltby of Redwood City, California, who we believe has presented his own research; the website contains thorough source information and appears to be an excellent resource for the Massachusetts Colony Washburn Family History. The website includes additional family lines as well. Regarding the Washburns, the only family line on the website reviewed by this researcher, much of the information presented appears to be in line with information already obtained and is believed to be accurate. For that reason, additional information obtained only from the Maltby Family Genealogy website has been included in this collection. Information provided, unless additional proof has been offered, has not yet been verified and cannot be guaranteed. Hereinafter cited as the Maltby Family Genealogy Website.
