"We are born alike, being hew'd all out of the same Rock, our father Adam: 'tis only vertue and noble actions that distinguish and set above the vulgar." Thomas Washbourne
"These are the outward Facts of our Worthy's Life --- save that he married --- date unknown --- a daughter of the famous Dean Fell, by whom he had a large family."
"Had my wife's father, Dr. Fell, late Dean of Christ Church, and your friend, been now alive, I should have made him my pilot in this storm" ... " which is the main subsistence of my family, a wife and five or* six small children."
James Davenport writes: "His wife was Dorothy daughter of Samuel Fell DD, Dean of Christ Church and sister of John Fell, Bishop of Oxford; she was born at Freshwater January 22nd 1618, being one of the elder of thirteen children: her brother was born in 1625 and died 1686. The present dean of Christ Church (Dr. Strong), kindly supplies the dates of three of their children baptised at Christchurch: Samuel Jan 5th 1640, Thomas Jan 21st 1643, John, Dec 28th 1643. Another son Charles, born about 1649, is recorded in Al. Ox....... Apparently the bride mentioned in the following marriage licence from the registry of the Archbishop of Canterbury's Vicar-General was a daughter of Thomas: "July 2 1669 John Hemming of St Martin in Fields citizen and apothecary bach abt 30 & Dorothy Washburne of same sp abt 18 consent of father Dr Washburne Dr of Divinity at St Martins aforesaid..."
As one would expect from a church minister, his poetry is about faith and love of God. Some are poetic sermons. Many of them have an "everyday" touch about them.
