This John Washburn is the 6th John in a row from SIR JOHN "The Old Sheriff" de WASSHEBORNE of WICHENFORD. He was christened 26 or 28 NOV 1621 in Bengeworth, Evesham, Worcester, England.
John Washburn VI, eldest son of John Washburn V, both in the line of the Washbornes' of Bengeworth, was born in 1620 and sailed to New England on the "Elizabeth & Ann", with his mother Margery Moore Washburn and brother Philip in 1635.
They settled first in Plymouth*, then Duxbury, then Bridgewater, New England. He was a tailor*.
When the Narragansett War broke out in 1645, the town of Duxbury sent John Washburn in August 1645 as one of its representatives to help fight the Indians, along with Sgt. Samuel Nash, William Brewster, William Clark, Nathaniel Chandler, and Edward Hall, for 17 days.
John Washburn and his father joined with several residents of Duxbury in the formation of the new town of Bridgewater in 1645. The names of John Washburn and John Washburn, Jr., are among the original proprietors of Bridgewater, which was incorporated into a town in 1656. In Dec. 1683 the purchasers of Bridgewater met, and laid out lots on the outside of Bridgewater, which became North Bridgewater, now Brockton, East Bridgewater, West Bridgewater, and South Bridgewater. John Washburn received 2 lots in East Bridgewater, 1 lot in West Bridgewater, and 1 lot in South Bridgewater.
He was constable of Duxburrow in 1659.
On 29 July 1661 Experience Mitchell acknowledged that he had given his son‑in‑law, John Washburn, some land between the brook and the Stony River, which John Washburn had in turn sold to Mr. William Bradford.

John Washburn (Jr), eldest son of John (Sr.) and Margery (Moore) Washburn, born in Bengeworth, Worcestershire, England, in 1620,
He married first Elizabeth Mitchell, daughter of Experience and Jane (Cooke) Mitchell, of Duxbury, on 6 Dec. 1645 in Plymouth Colony. She was born in ca. 1628 in Plymouth Colony, a granddaughter of Francis Cooke, who came to New England in 1620 on the “Mayflower,” and Hester (Mahieu) Cooke, and possibly of Thomas and Margaret (Williams) Mitchell, of Cambridge, England, and Amsterdam, Holland. Experience Mitchell and Jane Cooke had both sailed to New England in 1623 on the “Anne.”
They had eleven children, including the first notable set of Seven Brothers in the American Washburn line, from whom 90% of all current-day Washburns' descend:

These yDNA results (Haplo group and markers) are identical for John "the Immigrant" Washborn, Sr. b. 1597 of Bengeworth, 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.
