Libbeus Horton who married Mary (_______).[1]Libbeus was born about 1570 and died after 1637. Mary died and was buried in Mowsley on July 4, 1633.[2][3]"Nothing is known about the socioeconomic status of Libbeus's wife, Mary, nor do we know if he was previously married."[4]Surviving records dated between 1614 and 1637 suggest that Libbrus struggled financially, selling off prime real estate (with no record of any purchases during the same timeframe)[5][6] "The impact of his father's financial woes on Barnabas was life changing. While many of his kinsmen thrived financially and continued to derive an income from their landholdings, he was compelled to learn a trade."[7]

Children of Libbeus and Mary:
  1. Joseph who was born about 1595 and died between 1624 and 1628. He applied for a license to marry Elizabeth, the daughter of Thomas Bolesworth of North Kilworth in 1619.[8]that was not issued.[9]Or perhaps issued in another county since according to the will of John Abbott of North Kilworth (1628) there was a trust by Thomas Bolesworth, late of Kilworth, deceased for the education of Anne, daughter of Joseph Horton, deceased.[10]
  2. Barnabas, born about 1600 and died in 1680 in Southold, Suffolk, New York.[11]Presumed relationship, not DNA tested.[12]
  3. Richard was baptized January 6, 1604/5.[13]
  4. Zachary was baptized November 29, 1606 and buried on December 10, 1606.[14]
  5. He probably had daughters also.[15]

There is no Last Will and Testament nor is there any administration papers located for Libbeus Horton.[16]
