Henry Cobb Pilgrim


"Henry Cobb was the first known Cobb to emigrate from England (prob on the "Anne" in 1629) to the Plymouth Colony, Cape Cod, MA. Many distinguished descendants have long searched for his English origin and background.

RECENT DNA HAS DISPROVEN ALL PREVIOUSLY RESEARCH AND PUBLISHED ANCESTRY OF HENRY’S ENGLISH HERITAGE. THEREFORE I HAVE DELETED MUCH OF HIS HERETOFORE PUBLISHED ENGLISH INFORMAITON. WHEN MORE IS CONFIRED I WILL ADD IT BACK TO HIS HISTORY.

Much is known on the activities of Henry Cobb, the Puritan, in the Bay Colony but little has been done to unravel the specifics of his origin. The most visible trail of "Henry the Elder" in England is found in his relationship with his church leader, the Reverend John Lothrop. Lothrop, “a man of good family and education" was baptized at Eton on 20 December 1584. He received BA and MA degrees at Queens College, Cambridge. In 1611 we find him with the established Church of England at Egerton, Kent, a distance of about 15 miles from the probable home of Henry Cobb in Reculver, Kent. Obviously disenchanted with the autocratic dogma of the King's Church, the Reverend Lothrop is found as minister of an independent church in London in 1623; and then on 29 April 1632, we find him imprisoned in London with 40 members of his flock for violating the laws relating to religious gatherings. Following two years imprisonment, Lothrop left England in the ship "Griffin" with his family and some members of his church for the Plymouth colony, arriving there 18 September 1634. Here Henry Cobb, the Lothrop protégé who had been in the Colony for about five years, responded to the call of his old friend and esteemed pastor. He aided the Reverend in getting his family and church established in the newly formed town of Scituate. Lothrop’s records published in the New England Register, Volumes IX and X, leaves little doubt of Henry Cobb’s membership in Lothrop’s London church:

"Upon January 8, 1634, Wee had a day of humiliation and then at night joyned in covenaunt together, so many of us had beene in covenaunt before. To Witt.

Mr. Gilsonn and his wife
Goodman Anniball and his wife
Goodman Rowly and his wife

Henry was born about 1605. (He married Patience Hurst in Plymouth in 1631; English Yeoman of his time, married at age 26, thus the basis for his date of birth). Most men of Kent were farmers in an area famous for hops, fruit, and grain. Even in this age, importance was attached to the idea of status. The term "Yeoman" was commonly used in legal and other documents to denote status above "Husbandman" (smaller, less prosperous farmer) and below that of "Gentleman" (upper middle class). Yeomen, from whom Henry Cobb was descended, were reasonably well educated. Some Yeomen sons attended the universities; some became clergymen.

The nature of Henry Cobb's apprenticeship or trade in London is open to conjecture. The fact that he came from an area rich in hops and grain and later in the Colony he was authorized to dispense wine suggests the production and/or sale of ale, the national beverage of the era. From the Plymouth Colony Record 1173; "5 June 1644, Henry Cobb is lycensed to draw wine at Barnstable."


What better place than an English pub in the 17th century to keep abreast of politics, religion and emigration. Henry Cobb of London must certainly have been aware of a number of significant events, viz: That in 1604, in a declaration at Hampton Court, James I said of the Puritans, "I shall make them conform themselves or I will harry them out of the Land or else do worst." Henry must have known the story of an undereducated group of separatists called "Pilgrims" who sough refuge first in Amsterdam and subsequently in Leyden, Holland; and the unwilling to be assimilated into the Dutch culture, made their way to Plymouth in 1620 aboard the "Mayflower". (of the 101 passengers on the first voyage of the Mayflower, 35 were Leyden adventurers.) In 1628 the Puritans of Henry Cobb's sect began their mass exodus. In 1630 John Winthrop, a strong and able leader, led nearly 1000 Puritans with their cattle and horses to settlements in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. In general the Puritans were a wealthier and better educated class than the Pilgrims but they shared their deeply religious convictions. It was shortly after the Winthrop departure that Henry Cobb made his move, probably in the ship "The Anne" in 1629. Other possible ships include " Mayflower II' and the "Little James", which also arrived at Cape Cod in 1629. Professor Cobb said in his character analysis of Henry, the emigrant, that he was "sensible, shrewd, adverse to making trouble or being a part of it." Cobb didn't linger in London long enough to be jailed in the famous "clink" with the zealous Lothrop and his followers in 1632. When the great Civil War of 1642 came about to settle the question of supremacy between King and Parliament, High Church and Puritans, Henry Cobb is found saving souls and selling wine in Massachusetts."

John E. Cobb, Col, USA. He was listed on a passenger list in 1629 at sailing on the "Anne". He married Patience Hurst before 1632 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.2,3,4 Henry Cobb was present at Patience Cobb's christening on 13 March 1641/42 at Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts. He was a merchant.5 He married Sarah Hinckley on 12 December 1649 at Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.6,4 Henry died in 1679 at Barnstable, Barnstable, Massachusetts.7

Henry Leland

M, b. 1625

      There is good reason for believing that Henry Leland was a man in character like his comrades in those days, distinguished for firmness, courage, patient endurance and invincible moral and religious integrity.

George Lewes

M
     George Lewes was the son of George Lewes and Dennis Forman. George Lewes was baptized on 31 August 1600 at Brenchley, Kent, England.1 Occupation: (an unknown value).
     
     
      George Lewes is the first lineal Lewes ancestor to have come from England to the "New World". He was a clothier in East Greenwich, Kent County, England. He came to Massachusetts,in the ship Griffin in 1630, and owned land in Scituate in 1633 and was living in Plymouth in that year. He was a member of the Plymouth Church being dismissed in 1634 to join the church in Scituate. Sarah had a brother, Edward Jenkins, who lived in Scituate and was an inn keeper. The Rev. John Lothrop arrived in Boston with about thirty members of his congregation in Sept. of 1634. They went immediately to Scituate where George Lewes became a member of their group. They were probably know to one another in England.
     
     
      George and his brother, John, obtained lots on Kent Street named after the men who came from that county and were known as "the men of Kent." George's lot contained five acres and his house is No. 18 on Rev. Lothrop's list of the houses built. Twenty-seven householders had gathered themselves and their families into a church and community.
     
     
      George Lewes was named a freeman in Scituate in 1636, and his brother, John, in 1637. In the History of Scituate, Massachusetts, by Samuel Deane, Boston, 1831, is the following dated January, 1637: "Whereas certain freemen of Scituate, visit Mr. Anthony Hatherly, Mr. John Lothrop, William Gilson, Anthony Annable, James Cudworth, Edward Goster, Henry Cobb, Isaach Robinson, George Kennerick, Henry Rowley, Samuell Fuller, John Cooper, Bernard Lumbard, George Lewis and Humphrey Turner, have complained that they have such small proportions of lands there allotted them that they cannot subsist upon them etc". His actual date of admittance was 14 Jan. , in good standing, showing that he had been known to the colonists in England.
     
     
      In 1639, George moved to Barnstable and bought a lot second west of the Hyannis Road. He had several parcels of land, some of which were later sold to his sons, Edward and John. In 1648 and 1650 he was surveyor of highways, in 1649 juryman, and in 1651 constable. In "The History of Cape Cod: The Annals of the Thirteen towns of Barnstable County" by Frederick Freeman, 1862, Boston, under the "Annals of Barnstable County", George Lewes is mentioned as one of the first settlers: "A grant was also obtained. in September, for a settlement at Mattakeese, between Yarmouth and Sandwich; and in October the settlement was commenced chiefly by people from Scituate. Two persons are named in the grant, "Mr. Joseph Hull and Thomas Domoc," who, with their associated", were "to erect a plantation or town at or about a place called by the Indians Mattacheese;" but many persons of character and note were embraced under the term "associates," among who were the distinguished pastor, Rev. John Lothrop; also, Anthony Annable, Henry Cobb, Thomas Cudworth, Samuel Fuller, George Lewis, Barnard Lumbard, Samuel Hinckley, William Crocker, William Parker, Henry Bourne, and others.
     
     
      Mr. Dimmock (Dimoc) let and farmed out to George Lewis, Sen'r, his lands near the East End of the plantation. George was in Barnstable in 1639 being among the first settlers. George, a Separatist or Pilgrim, clothier turned planter by necessity, large property owner, is probably buried with the other first settlers near the seashore. His will was exhibited at court 3 Mar. 1663.
     
     _______________The Last Will and Testament Vol. II Part II, 19
     
     
      The last Will and Testament of George Lewis, Sen'r deceased exhibited to the Court held att Plymouth; the third of March 1663 on the oath of Mr. Thomas Allin of Barnstable.
