In the Herald's College, London, Vol. I., page 54, is given:
Washbourne. "A name of ancient Norman descent; the founder was knighted on the field of battle by William the Conqueror and endowed with the lands of Little Washbourne and Great Washbourne, Counties of Gloucester and Worcester"

The goal of this project is to expand and improve the knowledge base regarding the Knights Washbourne bloodline.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Rev Daniel Washburn Jones, a 20th g-grandson of Sir Roger.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Research and Documentation of Ancestors prior to Sir Roger d'Wasseburne.
  • Heraldry Research beyond the "fess between six martlets" Arms.
  • Our early family members held several crown offices .. What, if anything, can be made of this? Patterns?
  • What do the properties that are associated with this family, other than Little Washbourne, tell us about our line?

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!
