(3) (XIV) The numbers in parenthesis at the end of the Washburn name show both the American generations (standard numerals) (3) and the Roman numerals (XIV), showing the generations from Sir Roger d'Wasseburne, the 1st to use the surname.
These yDNA results (Haplo group and markers) are identical for John "the Immigrant" Washborn, Sr. b. 1597 Bengeworth (Josephs' grandfather), Robert de Washeborne b, 1476, son of Sir John "The Old Sheriff" de Washeborne of Wichenford and Sir Roger "The 1st Washburn" d'Wasseburne of Wasseburne, b. abt 1219. This yDNA evidence once again* proving the line of the Knights Washbourne through Wasseburne, Wichenford and down through Bengeworth to Plymouth.
The tests do not, by themselves, prove that John of Bengeworth b. 1479, was born to John of Wichenford and Joan Mytton, as the nature of this testing only proves that all of these Washburns' are of the same line. It is "possible" for this 1st John of Bengeworth to have been from a generation or two back, but thanks to the yDNA evidence, we can say, without a doubt, that the John's of Bengeworth and thus, the John's of Plymouth Colony, were descended from the Norman Knights Washbourne in this male line.
Joseph Washburn, fourth son of John Washburn; born probably in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, supposedly on 7 July 1653, married Hannah Latham, daughter of Robert and Susanna (Winslow) Latham, in ca. 1677. She was born say ca. 1658, a granddaughter of John and Mary (Chilton) Winslow.
Mary Chilton had come to Plymouth Colony aboard the “Mayflower” in 1620, with her parents, James and Susanna Chilton. Joseph Washburn was a blacksmith, and they lived in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, until about 1717, when they moved to Plympton, Massachusetts.
