Notes for Adam Winthrop III:



[Family History 3.FTW]

Name: Adam WINTHROP 1 2 3 Sex: M Title: Esq. Birth: 10 AUG 1548 in Edwardston, England 2 3 Death: 29 MAR 1623 in Groton, Suffolk, England 2 3 Note:
[Robert coles.GED]

Little is known of his early life except to note that his father died when he was 14 and his mother died three years later. Family traditions, as perpetuated by Cotton Mather, represent him to have been a lawyer; and he has sometimes been
recorded as a sergeant-at-law. He seems to have resided almost altogether at Groton, and to have occupied himself mainly with agricultural pursuits. He became "Lord of the Manor" at some point and there are abundant proofs that he was a man
of good education and of high social standing. He was also a poet, his verses having been thought worthy of preservation in a miscellany of the poetry of the time.

There are in existence many of the old "Winthrop Almanacs" containing memoranda. Adam Winthrop kept a diary from 1594 until 1610. He was an auditor of Trinity College, Cambridge, for 16 or 17 years. He held other offices, as well - "in 1602,
the xvth of Aprill I kept a Court for my brother Snelling at Shimplinge." "The xxviith I kept a Court at Groton Hall." "1602. On Wednesdays the xxiiii of Marche Queen Elizabeth died & James the vith Kinge of Scotland was proclaymed the next
day at London & on Saturday & Sudbury with the great rejoycings of all men."

In one entry, he mentions the Fones connection: "1608. The i of November my Daught'r Fones' daught'r was christened. Sr Robert Crane & his Lady were present & she witness with Mres. Sampson & mres. Bronde & myselfe. She named the childe

On the 16th of December, 1574, he married Alice Still. She and her first born child died December 24, 1577. He then married Anne Browne (born 1558 in Suffolk, England and died on April 19, 1629 in Groton, daughter of Henry and Agnes Browne)
on February 20, 1579.

After his death, a stone replaced the bronze plate covering his father's grave and it was carved with the following:

Heaven the Country: Christ the Way

Here lies the body of Adam Winthrop Esq., son of Adam

Winthrop Esq. who were patrons of this church

and lords of the manor of Groton.

The above named Adam, the son, married Anna, the daughter

of Henry Browne of Edwardston, by whom he had one son

and four daughters.

He departed this life in the year of our Lord 1623.

And of his own age 75. But Anna his wife died in 1628.

She is also buried here with him.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called

The sons of God.

Children of Adam Winthrop and Anne Browne are:
  i.   John Winthrop, born 1588; died 1649.
  Notes for John Winthrop:



Winthrop, John (1588-1649), American colonial administrator of Massachusetts, born in Edwardstone, West Suffolk, England, educated at the University of Cambridge, and trained for the law at Gray's Inn, in London. In 1623 he was appointed to the lucrative position of attorney in the court of wards and liveries, but he lost that post in 1629, probably because of his Puritan beliefs and associations. Later in 1629 the Massachusetts Bay Company in London selected him to govern its colony in New England. With some 700 Puritan settlers, Winthrop sailed from Yarmouth in March 1630, and landed at Salem, Massachusetts, on June 12. Shortly thereafter he settled in the Shawmut Peninsula community, later renamed Boston.

Winthrop was elected governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony 12 times between 1630 and 1649. Believing that the colony could be more effectively governed by a few learned and pious leaders, he opposed an unlimited democracy. For this reason, while serving as deputy governor under Sir Henry Vane, he concluded that the doctrines of the religious reformer Anne Hutchinson threatened to subvert moral law. Winthrop presided over the court that found Anne Hutchinson guilty and banished her from the colony. In 1643 he helped to organize the New England Confederation, which he served as the first president. Winthrop's administrative ability and wisdom were in large part responsible for the early prosperity of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. His journals were published in 1825-1826 as The History of New England 1630-1649.

  16331 ii.   Anne Winthrop, born 1585; died Bet. 1614 - 1680; married Thomas Fones II.
