John Jarboe was born in Dijon, France, in 1619. 
He came to St. Mary’s City in the Maryland Colony sometime before 1646. In that year Leonard Calvert, Governor of the Maryland Colony, recruited men to defend his colony. 
St. Mary’s City was the fourth British settlement in North America and home of religious toleration in America.
Jarboe was granted 200 acres in St. Mary’s County for his service. He acquired at least 1000 acres in the area of Britton’s Bay called Newtowne Neck.
He later became High Sheriff of St. Mary’s County and member of the House of Burgesses. 
John Jarboe was a member of the oldest Catholic Church in the English Colonies that is still active today, St. Francis Xavier (est. 1640), where he is buried in the cemetery.
