Sir Roger De Washbourne, ancestor of our Washburn lineage

Sir John De Washbourne was the son of Sir Roger and Lady Joan De Washbourne of Knight's Manor Washbourne in the area of Little Washbourne, England. He later resided in Stanford, England. The date of his birth was approximate 1259.

This Sir John De Washbourne was recorded under the name of John De Dufford prior to the death of his father, Sir Roger De Washbourne. This Dufford name was connected to the name of lands that he purchased in 1280 while his father was still living. Ada C. Haight in the book The Richard Washburn Family Genealogy (1937), states that Sir John is mentioned in the Lay Subsidy Roll of 1280. Sir John married Lady Isabella Kassey.

In 1312, this Sir John De Washbourne was Knight of the Shire. In the year when Sir John is recorded as holding this high office, King Edward II sat on the throne in England.

In 1316, he confirmed to his son, Sir Roger De Washbourne, and Sir Roger's wife, Margaret, all his manor of Washbourne.

Ada Haight wrote in his book that Sir John died before Michaelmas in 1320, which some authors call the Feast of Saint Michael. Other genealogical researchers place the date of his death as 1319. He is buried at Saint Laurence Church in Wickhamford.
