John De Washbourne II, ancestor of our Washburn lineage



Sir Roger De Washbourne was born in 1291 in the area of Stanford, England. His parents were Sir John De Washbourne and Lady Isabel De Washbourne. He married his wife, Margaret (maiden name unknown) as early as 1316.

This Sir Roger succeeded his father as Lord of Washbourne and Stanford in the thirteenth year of the reign of King Edward II in 1320. He was recorded as a Knight.

Sir Roger and Lady Margaret had two sons named John. It was often customary in those times to give the same name to two sons; a custom that continued down to the seventeenth century.

The elder son, John De Washbourne I, married Katherine Thromwin and died around 1319 without children. His widow, Katherine, married Sir John Musard and they had a daughter whom they named Joan Musard. This daughter later married the son of Peter Washborn, John Washborn, each of whom will be described later in this paper.

The younger son, John Washbourne II, evidently made the first recorded change in the family surname and was later recorded as having spelled the surname as Washborn. In later generations, the spelling of the name reverted back to the original spelling.

Sir Roger died in either 1358 or 1360 and is buried at Saint Laurence Church in Wickhamford, England, where his wife, Margaret, is also buried.
