John Lowthrop, son of Thomas was baptised on 20 Dec 1584 at Etton, Yorkshire, England. [1]

According to "The Genealogical History of Edgar Hanks Evans" (research by Donald Lines Jacobus):

John Lothrop or Lowthroppe (Thomas, Robert, John) was baptized in Etton, 20 Dec. 1584 and came to New England. He entered first Christ Church, College, Oxford for according to Foster's "Alumni Oxonienses" John Lothroppe of Yorkshire aged sixteen years, was admitted a pleb of Christ Church 15 Oct. 1602. Thence he went to Cambridge, where according to Venn's Alumni Cantabrigienses, John Loothrop, Lathrop or Lothrop, who was baptized at Etton, Yorkshire, 20 Dec. 1584, son of Thomas of Etton, was admitted to the degree of Bachelor of Arts from Queen's College in 1606, and to that of Master of Arts in 1609; a brief biographical notice of him is given by Venn. His brother Rev. Thomas Lothrop was admitted sizar at Queen's College, Cambridge 30 June 1601; took his bachelor's degree in 1604/5 and his master's degree in 1608; was rector of Dengie in Essex, 1613-1629 and died in 1629.
Rev. John Lothrop soon located in Egerton, 48 miles southeast from London, in the Lower Half hundred of Calehill, Lathe of Scray, county Kent, as curate of the parish there. To this living he was appointed about 1611 by the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul. It was probably his first and only parish charge as a minister of the English Church. Here Mr. Lothrop labored faithfully as long as his judgement could approve the ritual and government of the Church. But when he could no longer do this, we find him conscientiously renouncing his orders and asserting the right of still fulfilling a ministry to which his heart and his conscience had called him. Accordingly in 1623 his decision was made and he espoused the cause of the Independents. The date of his leaving Egerton was 1623 and next year he was called to the First Independent Church in London, then situated on Union St., Southwark, London now utterly gone.
For being independent in thought he was arrested 22 Apr. 1632 and put in jail, along with a group of 24 others. In the old Clink prison, in Newgate, and in the Gatehouse, there men lingered for months. In the Spring of 1634, all but Mr. Lothrop were released on bail; he, their leader, the chief offender, was deemed too dangerous to be set at liberty.
During the time he was in prison, a fatal illness was preying on his wife and bringing her fast to her end. Her name was Hannah House.

"In New England's Memorials" by Nathaniel Morton, published in 1669, he says -:

"His wife fell sick, of which sickness she died. He procured liberty of the bishop to visit his wife before her death, and commended her to God by prayer, who soon gave up the ghost. At his return to prison, his poor children, being many, repaired to the bishop at Lambeth and made known unto him their miserable condition by reason of their good father's being continued in close durance, who commiserated their condition so far as to grant him liberty, who soon after came over unto New England".

In the Journal, kept by Governor Winthrop, under date of 18 Sept. 1634, appears, "The Griffin and another ship now arriving with about 200 passengers. Mr. Lothrop and Mr. Sims, two godly ministers coming in the same ship." On the next page of the journal it says - "Mr. Lothrop had been a pastor of a private congregation in London, and for the same, kept long in prison, upon refusal of the oath, ex-officio, being in Boston upon a sacrament day, after the sermon, desired leave of the congregation to be present at the administration, but said that he durst not desire to partake in it, because he was not then in order, being dismissed from his former congregation, and he thought it not fit to be suddenly admitted into any other for example sake, and because of the deceitfulness of man's heart".

On reaching Boston with that portion of his London flock who had accompanied him, he found already the preparations begun to welcome him to a new home in Scituate.

Marriage to 2nd wife of John Lothrop

MARRIAGE: [OF [of Rev John Lothrop]
"(2) by 1635, Ann ____. (On 14 Jun 1635, John Lothrop wrote that "my wife and brother Foxwell's wife joined [Scituate church] having their dismission from elsewhere." [NEHGR 9:379] She died at Barnstable on 25 Feb 1687/8. [MD 6:238] (She was not a daughter of William Hammond, {1631 Watertown} [GMB2:853-54].)" [2] [3]

When Rev. John Lothrop settled in Scituate he was granted a farm. While there differences arose between him and the people on the question of baptism and he removed to Barnstable, where he had a house lot granted him.

He died in Barnstable on 8 Nov. 1653; he left a will which had not been signed; and on 7 Mar. 1653/4 administration was granted on his estate to Mrs. Laythorpe". The will mentioned his wife; oldest son Thomas to have a house in Barnstable; son John in England and son Benjamin in Barnstable each to have a cow and 5 pounds; daughters Jane and Barbara had had their portions; to the rest of the children "both mine and my wife's" each a cow; to each of them one book; the rest of his library to be sold and the proceeds divided.[4]

Children of Rev. John Lothrop and Hannah House (second generation): [2] -

i. Jane, bp. Egerton, Kent, 29 Sept. 1614, m. Samuel Fuller, son of Edward Fuller, 8 April 1635.[2] (Note that Anderson gives the location of this marriage as Barnstable, but other records support the location as Scituate. See Jane's profile for details.)

In Barnstable, by second wife, Ann (Unknown):--

Rev. John Lothrop is an accepted ancestor for the Society of Colonial Dames - "Lothrop, Rev. John (1584-1653) Scituate and Barnstable, Mass. Queen's College, Cambridge, A.B. 1606, A.M. 1609. Minister at Scituate 1634-1639; and at Barnstable 1639-1653."

More information can be found on various genealogies posts on the Internet. For example there is an interesting report about the imprisonment of John Lothrop and the fate of his family. On April 29, 1632, Reverend Lothropp's congregation was discovered by the Bishop's pursuant at the house of Mr. Humphrey Barnet and 42 members were apprehended there, but only 18 escaped. After two years in various prisons they were all released on bail except for Reverend Lothropp, for whom no favor could be obtained. He petitioned King Charles I for liberty to depart from the kingdom, but his petition was rejected.

Apparently while John was in prison, his wife, Hannah fell sick, and he was permitted to visit her. Shortly after this she died either in April or May of 1634 and John's children were placed in the care of some friends, who could scarcely support them. As a result, John's children were often forced to live on the streets and beg for food. Some friends sent the children to petition the Bishop of Lambeth for their father's freedom, who upon realizing their pathetic state, ordered that Reverend John be released from prison in May or June of 1634.

Notes on 2nd wife's Last Name at Birth "not Hammond"

"Savage called her Anne, daughter of William Hammond of Watertown. The entry in Rev. Lothrop's record referring to Elizabeth Hammond (wife of Samuel House) as "sister" has been taken to mean John's second wife Anne was Anne Hammond, Elizabeth's sister. Instead, Elizabeth's husband was the brother of Lothrop's first wife, Hannah."
She was not a daughter of WILLIAM HAMMOND {1631, Watertown} In his record of admissions to Scituate church Rev. John Lathrop entered on 14 April 1636 "Elizabeth Hammon my sister having a dismission from the church at Watertown." Lothrop's first wife, Hannah House, was sister of Samuel House; since Lothrop refers to her by maiden name but also calls her sister, the admission to Scituate church may have taken place after the contract of marriage, but before the marriage itself (note, however, that the first child of the couple was baptized on 23 October 1636). Various sources give John Lothrop of Scituate a second wife who was a Hammond; this is based on a false deduction from the entry discussed above.
The sources for the wrong last name for Ann (Unknown) are Savage, and:

Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families, by Otis, page 162

The profile at the top of the page says Joseph married Hannah Howse on 10 Oct. 1610, but the biography says 16 Oct. 1610, citing several sources. 16 October 1610 is apparently correct.
posted by Christine Crawford
I may just be missing it, but I don't see the discussion in the bio which gives a date for his first marriage. Where is that and which sources are you referring to which confirm the marriage date?
posted by Scott McClain
I apologize for not citing my source (and also for calling him Joseph instead of John....). In the profiles for both John Lothrop and Hannah Howse, the marriage date is given as 10 Oct. 1610, but in the biography for Hannah Howse, the correct date, 16 October 1610, is given. _Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635_, p. 347, says that John Lothrop and Hannah Howse were married on 16 October 1610. So the marriage date needs to be changed in both profiles.

Anderson says that daughter Jane, b 1614 was married at Barnstable 8 Apr 1635 and the incorrect Barnstable marriage location is likely to be restored in error. I am adding a note that Jane's profile corrects her marriage location.
posted by Raymond Watts PhD
If you compare daughter Jane's profile to what is listed in this profile about her there are some conflicts? In Jane"s profile it is listed that she was married to Samuel Fuller on 8 April, 1635 in Situate not Barnstable, by Captain Miles Standish. I find it odd that her father didn't perform the ceremony? Further most of the older children were listed as born in Situate.
posted by Ken Morgan
The Huntington Lothrop Memoir cited in Jane's profile gives us a lot of (unsourced) detail about her marriage: that the ceremony was performed by Capt. Miles Standish in Scituate at the house of Mr. James Cudworth. So there is perhaps a diary entry to be found. You could start with looking for the sources listed in the silver book for Edward Fuller: MacGunnigle, Bruce Campbell. Mayflower Families Through Five Generations. Volume Four. Third Edition. Family of Edward Fuller. (Plymouth: General Society of Mayflower Descendants, 2006.)

It looks to me like we should be using Lowthrop as the spelling of the LNAB and Lothropp as the current last name spelling. Lowthrop being the spelling used on his baptism.
posted by Anne B
This is another case where Lothrop is such a common and historically well known spelling that it makes no sense to change it to any the dozen plus alternatives found in contemporary records. Anderson uses Lothrop which should count for something.

John Lathrop, Lothrop, Lowthrop, Lothroppe, Lowthroppe, Loothrop, Lowthorp, Latropp, Laythorpe, Lathorp, Lathropp, Latroppe, Lathrope, Lothrope, Laythorp (found on a brief review of the records)

Thank you Craig for removing Rebecca Pierce as child of John Lothrop. I removed her from connection to Hannah House also. It appears to have been a random error that connected her profile to Lothrop, as her own profile shows her as Unknown-200096.

Your diligence in keeping WikiTree accurate is appreciated.

Craig, the footnote [1] in this profile refers to Great Migration by Robert Charles Anderson, the primary source for PGM profiles.

There was a bug in the one FindaGrave footnote making it show as [1] also, which is now corrected.

Elizabeth is in Vol IV, p 349 as John Lothrop's 13th child, born of his 2nd wife.

Anderson cites PCR 4:106-8, 125-26 (Records of the Colony of New Plymouth in New England by Shurtleff and Pulsifer), and Stratton 321 (Plymouth Colony: Its History & People, 1620-1691 by Eugene Stratton). Anderson's list of sources used in his GM series runs to 120 pages, found at the beginning of the first volume. The GM series is at NEHGS or and libraries.

I have found no evidence that Rev. John Lothrop had a daughter named Elizabeth who married John Williams referred in the listing above. Just because her name is listed on does not qualify as proof. Does anybody have some better evidence of this relationship?
posted by Craig Ferguson
Since Ann, the 2nd wife of Rev John Lothrop, is already Ann Unknown in the Vital stats section and relationships, I plan to make it match what is in the body of the text, changing where it says "by second wife, Anne Hammond" to "by second wife, Ann Unknown". etc.

The only feedback I've had from the PMs has been in the positive for this so hopefully it will go well.

PS: I found an "extra" son of the 2nd wife in the text and removed it, the children now number 15 and match what is presented in Great Migration by Anderson.

I added a section - "Disputed 2nd Wife of John Lothrop", because we need to examine the sources for Ann Hammond and for Ann Unknown, and discuss them.

Anderson in Great Migrations shows the 2nd wife as Ann Unknown. So does Cutter. Other sources show her as Ann Hammond, and the reasons for that misunderstanding are given in the text now.

Could we please have a response from the profile managers? thank you,

Plantagenet-167 may be the closest Sovereign in Lothrop-3. Can anyone support this claim or highlight where this line is incorrect? Thanks
