Generation No. 1

 

        1.  Adam1 Winthrop, I, of Lavenham1.  He married Joane Burton2. 

       

Child of Adam Winthrop and Joane Burton is:

+      2                 i.    Adam2 Winthrop, Gent, Lord of the Manor of Groton, born October 9, 1498 in Lavenham, County Suffolk; died November 9, 1562 in Groton, County Suffolk, and buried in the chancel of St. Bartholomew's Church.

 

 

Generation No. 2

 

        2.  Adam2 Winthrop, Gent, Lord of the Manor of Groton (Adam1) was born October 9, 1498 in Lavenham, County Suffolk3, and died November 9, 1562 in Groton, County Suffolk, and buried in the chancel of St. Bartholomew's Church4.  He married (1) Alice Henny, of London November 16, 15275.  She died January 25, 1532/336.  He married (2) Agnes Sharpe, of Islington, County Middlesex 1534 in England7, daughter of Robert Sharpe, of Islington.  She was born Abt. 15168, and died 15659.

        Adam Winthrop left his home at the age of seventeen and bound himself as an apprentice to Edward Altham in London for ten years.  A clothier, Altham was elected to be Sheriff of London.  After fulfilling his contract, Winthrop became a citizen of London in 1526.

        According to Mayo, he worked hard and advanced in the Clothworkers' Company of London, and by 1551, he was chosen a Master of the Company, although his progress was not without a few bumps in the road.  In 1538, as one of the Stewards, he was chastised "for disobeying the wardens in the search because that he would not suffer them to carry the cloth out of his house."  Noting drying that Winthrop may have been "a little too enterprising for his own immediate good," Mayo states in 1543, he served time in the Fleet Prison and could not get out until he paid 600 pounds into the royal coffers.  "His offense was negotiating with foreigners contrary to an edict of the King of England, but we do not know the nature of the negotiations which proved to be so expensive."

        His offence could not have been too costly to him, however, because the very next year he purchased the Manor of Groton.  With the prucase he became Lord of the Manor and Patron of the Church, for the property carried with it the right to name the local rector.

        Four years later Edward, VI granted him arms and the rank of Gentleman.  The arms were confirmed to his son, John, in 1592. 

       

Child of Adam Winthrop and Alice Henny is:

+      3                 i.    William3 Winthrop, born November 12, 1529; died March 1, 1580/81.

+      4                 i.    Alice3 Winthrop, Lady Mildmay, born November 15, 1539; died November 8, 1607 in her home at Springfield, after a fall, and buried at Springfield November 15, 1607.

+      5                ii.    Bridget Winthrop, born May 3, 1543; died November 4, 1614.

+      6               iii.    Mary Winthrop, born March 1, 1543/44.

        9               vi.    Susanna Winthrop10, born December 10, 155211; died August 9, 160412.  She married John Cotta13.

 

 

Generation No. 3

 

        3.  William3 Winthrop (Adam2, Adam1)14 was born November 12, 152915, and died March 1, 1580/8116.  He married Elizabeth Norwood. 

       

Children of William Winthrop and Elizabeth Norwood are:

        10               i.    Joshua4 Winthrop, of Michell in the Quearne17, born 1559; died 1626 in Parish of Kilbrogan, Brandon, County Cork, Ireland, probably17.  He married Anne Norrington, of London February 6, 1586/8718.

               Evidently Anne proved to be a hand full.  On September 24, 1603, she came to live with Adam Winthrop, and the gentleman wrote a lenglthy "memoriall" to her husband, the entries noted in his diary.  The most damning entry stated"  "On sonday the xxxth of octobeer she went not to Chruch neighter in the forenoone or afternoone for the which bycause myh wife did frendly reproue her she fell out with her in bitter woordes and the next day she went to John Nuttons house and therre made her abode.  On Munday the vijth of November she sent for her thinges to my house and went againe to her owne house"

               Adam dutifully noted continued sightings of the errant wife as she careened about the county, until finally, "The xth of Jan:  she sownded and was sicke for greefe.  The xvijth of Jan:  she went to London in Colchester wagon."

              

 

+      11              ii.    Adam Winthrop, of London & County Cork, born 1561; died 1634.

        According to Mayo, an earthenware tankard with a silver lid and trimmings, which Lady Mildmay gave to her brother, Adam, is one of the treasures in the possession of the American Antiquarian Society.  The cover depicts the Fall of Adam.  It is of note because both Adam and Eve are shown in all their natural glory, certainly something one would not expect to find in the possession of a staunch Puritan.

       

Children of Alice Winthrop and Thomas Mildmay are:

+      14               i.    Henry4 Mildmay, Knt..

+      15              ii.    William Mildmay, II of Moulsham, County Essex.

Children of Bridget Winthrop and Roger Alabaster are:

        17               i.    William4 Alabaster, born 156727; died 1640.

According to the Winthrop Papers, William "took his degree of M.A. at Trinity College, Cambridge, and, July 11, 1592 was incorporated of the university of Oxford.  He had already received notice for his Latin Poems and had written a Latin tragedy, Roxana, which was performed in the hall of Trinity College, but remained unprinted until 1632.  The cause of his malcontentment is not know.  In 1596 he was chaplain to the Earl of Essex in the expedition to Cadiz, where he became a convert to Romanism.  By his study of cabalistic divinity he incurred the penalties of the Inquisition at Rome, but escaping returned to England and to Protestantism."

        18              ii.    George Alabaster, died 159628.

        19             iii.    Thomas Alabaster, born 1585; died 162028.

        7.  John3 Winthrop, Lord of the Manor of Groton (Adam2, Adam1)35 was born January 20, 1545/4636, and died July 26, 161337.  He married (1) Elizabeth Risby, of Thorpe Morieux, Suffolk February 6, 1564/65, daughter of Robert Risby and Margery Rosse.  She died 1637.  He married (2) Elizabeth Powlden, of Rathgogan, County Cork Aft. 156638, daughter of Thomas Powlden, of Rathgogan, County Cork. 

        John Wintrhop migrated to Aghadowne, County Cork, Ireland, a parish in the barony of West Carbery, on the north bank of the Ilen River.   He occasionally visited England and is known to have "kept a court at Groton Hall," as late as October, 1601.  He separated from his first wife, Elizabeth Risby and married Elizabeth Powlden of County Cork.  The validity of the marriage is doubtful.

       

Child of John Winthrop and Elizabeth Risby is:

        25               i.    Benjamin4 Winthrop.

 

       

Children of John Winthrop and Elizabeth Powlden are:

        8.  Adam3 Winthrop, Esq., Lord of the Manor of Groton (Adam2, Adam1)40 was born August 10, 1548 in London, St. Peter's Parish, in a house on Gracechurch Street41, and died March 28, 1623 in Groton Manor, and buried at St. Bartholomew's Church42.  He married (1) Alice Still, of Grantham, County Lincolnshire43 December 16, 157444, daughter of William Still, of Grantham, County Lincolnshire.  She died 1577 in England in childbirth, and buried at Hadleigh, County Suffolk45.  He married (2) Anne Browne, of Edwardston, County Suffolk46 February 20, 1578/7947, daughter of Henry Browne and Agnes.  She died Abt. 1629 in Groton Manor, and buried at St. Bartholomew's Church in the tomb of her husband.

        Adam Wintrhop divided his time while growing up between London and Groton.  When his father died, he was fourteen, and the Manor descended to his older brother, John.  Adam was a citizen and clothworker of London.  Inscribed armiger by Edward, VI, in 1548, he was named master of the Clothworkers' Company in 1551.

        When John migrated to Ireland in 1594, Adam established himself permanently at Groton, and in time became Lord of the Manor.

        Fortunately, he kept records, in which he made methodical notes.  Preserved in the British Museum (Harleian Manuscripts, No. 1598).  The first volume of "The Winthrop Papers," is of particular interest to the Clopton Family.  It is in this volume the daily activities, which often included mention of the Cloptons, is recorded as well as the arresting account of Thomasine Clopton's death.

VERSES MADE BY MR. ADAM WINTHROPP TO THE LADIE MILDMAY AT THE BYRTH OF HER SONNE HENERY

 

Madam,

 

I singe not like the swanne, that readye is to dye;

But with the Phoenix I rejoyce, when she in fire doth frye.

My soule doth praise the Lord and magnifie his name,

For this sweete babe which in your wombe he did most finely frame.

And on a blessed day hath made him to be borne,

That with his giftes of heavenly grace his soule he might adorne.

God graunt him happie days in joye and peace to lyve,

And more of this most blessed fruite hereafter to you give.

 

His wife was a great-granddaugherof Sir Thomas Mildmay of Moulsham, County Essex, and Lady Frances Radcliffe, daughter of Henry Radcliffe, second Earl of Sussex who is connected to the Cloptons through the Howards.

        30.  Anne4 Winthrop, II of Groton Manor County Suffolk (Adam3, Adam2, Adam1)67 was born January 16, 1585/86, and died May 16, 161968.  She married Thomas Fones, Apothecary of London69 February 25, 1604/05, son of Thomas Fones, of Dedford in Bromsgrove Worcester.  He died April 15, 1629.

        Thomas Fones, of Dedford in Bromsgrove, County Worcester, was at the time of his marriage to Anne Winthrop, Apothecary in London at the sign of the Three Fawns in the Old Bailey.  John Burgess, the father of his first wife, had, according to the "Winthrop Papers, "been silenced as a preacher and going to Leyden took the degree of doctor of physic.  Returning to England, after an absence of six or seven years, he was forbidden to practise physic in London on the ground that he had been in holy orders, and removed to Isleworth where he enjoyed a large and lucrative practice.  He was rector of Sutton Coldfield, County Warwick, 1617-35, and accompanied, as chaplain, Sir Horace Vere in the war of the Palatinate in 1620.  William AMes, the Puritan divine, was a son-in-law."

       

Children of Anne Winthrop and Thomas Fones are:

        46               i.    Dorothy5 Fones, born October 24, 1608 in Groton, County Suffolk and was Christened November 1, 160870; died December 24, 1608.

        48             iii.    Samuel Fones, born February 5, 1616/1775.

        49             iv.    Elizabeth Fones76.  She married Henry Winthrop, of Groton, County Suffolk77 April 25, 162978; born January 10, 1607/08 in Groton, County Suffolk, and baptized at St. Bartholomew's Church January 2079; died July 2, 1630 in New England by drowning80.

 

 

        31.  John4 Winthrop, Governor of Massachusetts (Adam3, Adam2, Adam1)81 was born January 12, 1587/88 in Edwardston, County Suffolk, England and baptized January 16, 1587 at St. Bartholomew's Church, Groton82, and died March 26, 1649 in Boston, Massachusetts and buried at King's Chapel Burial Ground83,84.  He married (1) Mary Forth, of Great Stambridge, County Essex April 16, 1605 in Great Stambridge, County Essex by Mr. Ezekiel Culverwell85, daughter of John Forth and Thomasine Hilles.  She was born January 1, 1582/83, and died June 26, 1615 in Groton, County Suffolk, England and buried St. Bartholomew's Church, probably in the Chancel with her mother, Groton86.  He married (2) Thomasine Clopton, of Castlings Manor, Groton87 December 6, 1615 in Castlings Manor, Groton, County Suffolk88, daughter of William Clopton and Margery Waldegrave.  She was born Abt. February 5, 1581/82 in Castlings Manor and baptized February 5, 1582 at St. Bartholomew's Church, Groton, County Suffolk89, and died December 11, 1616 in Winthrop Manor, England and buried St. Bartholomew's Church, in the Chancel, Groton, County Suffolk, December 11, 161690.  He married (3) Margaret Tyndal91 April 29, 1618 in Great Maplestead, County Essex92, daughter of John Tyndal and Anna Egerton.  She was born Abt. 1591, and died June 14, 1647 in Boston, Massachusetts and buried, probably, at King's Chapel Burial Ground93.  He married (4) Martha Rainsborough94 Aft. December 20, 164795, daughter of William Rainborough.  She died October 24, 1660 in Boston.  Following John Winthrop's death, she married John Coggan, March 10, 165196.

        John married into a family stationed well above the parvenu, nouveau riche Winthrops, Lords of the Manor of Groton, which they had obtained by purchase from the Crown.  The Winthrops, judged by Clopton standards of the day, were second rank arrivistes, whom historians describe as 'mere' parish gentry.  But the Winthrops were looking beyond England to new opportunities across the sea and possibly William Clopton saw an advantage in this marriage.  Although both Thomasine and her infant daughter would die, the Winthrops intermarried with descendants of her siblings.

        Death was an accepted part of life.  By the sixteenth century, men lived to an average of around fifty, with about one fifth surviving to their sixties. Women could only expect to live to an average of thirty.  It is possible up to fifty per cent of children did not reach the age of twenty.  The children of the wealthy families had a greater chance of survival than those of the peasant woman, but death following the birth of a child killed queens and commoners alike at about the same rate.  Thanks to the Massachusetts Historical Society, a touching and graphic account of Thomasine Clopton's death following the birth of her daughter has survived.  See "Brief Communion."
