John was born and baptised (on the 28th) in Bengeworth, Worchester, England.
John came to Plymouth Colony in 1635. The ship was the "Elizabeth and Ann". He is recorded as 14 years of age. He came with his mother Margery (Moore) Washborne and his brother Philip Washborne, and they were recorded as 49 and 11 years of age.
John married Elizabeth Mitchell on 6 Dec 1645. They had 11 children:
John Washburn Jr @1646
Thomas Washburn @1648
Samuel Washburn @1651
Joseph Washburn 7 July 1653
Johnathan Washburn @1655
Benjamin Washburn @1658
Mary Washburn @1661
Elizabeth Washburn @1664
Jane Washburn @1670
James Washburn 15 May 1672
Sarah Washburn @1675
John and Elizabeth were among the original settlers of what is referred to today as "Old Bridgewater". They settled in the area that is today the central portion of the town of Bridgewater. "Old Bridgewater' was officially incorporated in 1656.
Elizabeth died between 1681 and 1684. She died before her father, and thus not mentioned in his will.
John married again, another woman named Elizabeth. Her maiden name is not known. She was the widow of Samuel Packard (D: 7 Nov 1684). The marriage took place about 1685.
John made his will on 30 Oct 1686. He died on 12 Nov 1686, in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Plymouth Colony.
The place of his burial is not known. He is not buried in the First Cemetery of current day Bridgewater, as is often stated. (The vital record designation CR1 is not a cemetery source. CR1 stands for "church record, Unitarian Church", and the church did not ever own the cemetery.)
