to http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/DEARBORN/1997-11/0878574366:"William was born in Lincolnshire, England probably in the early
1570s." On May 2, 1594, he married Agnes Hay at a thatch
church, St. Peter's Church in Markby, England*.
"He married (2) Jane ____, who was buried there 16 Nov 1628. William was buried there 5 Nov 1631. He died intestate, and on 9 Dec 1631 administration
on the estate of William Dearbarne of Habertoft in Willoughby was granted to his son George Dearbarne of Sloothby, weaver. The inventory of the estate,
which totalled L35-18-2, listed a debt of 20 shillings owed the estate by Godfrey Dearbarne (Consistory Court of Lincoln, Admons, 1631 No.
41). Earlier sources specify Willoughby as the birth location but this will be changed to Lincolnshire, only.

"Agnes died bef 29 Aug 1613; she was 40." "They had the following children: 2

Generation No. 4
TO BOSTON, TO EXETER THEN HAMPTON, NH
was born 24 Sep 1603 in Exeter, Devon, England, a weaver by trade in England and
America. Religiously he was a Congregationalist, who came to America in
1639. He lived in Boston, then Exeter NH, then Hampton NH were he died February 4, 1685/86. The second child of William and
Agnes Dearborn, his wives are unclear to me.
In trying to resolve who his wives might be, I have put the tidbits of
information I have found to date in the following table format:
||Godfrey Dearborn is born
(He seems to have been born in 1599 with christening date in 1603).
future wife (1st wife?) Lucy is born.
(Goody?) (Godfrey's second wife?) is born. (Possibly born 1607)
future wife (3rd wife) Dorothy is born.
Richardson marries 1st husband John Fields.
and Lucy Richardson (Fields?) marry in England. June 23,
She is about 24 and he is about 30.
William dies (died young or at birth???) Lucy died also??
marries Anne (Goody?) (Godfrey's second wife?).
*Seating plan for the Hampton meeting house has a pew assignment for
"Goody Derborn." "Goody" is a nickname
for "Good wife" so "Miss Goody" may only be a
nickname. Some websites list Lucy Miss Goody Richardson as his
wife. Perhaps both his 1st and 2nd wife were called by this
nickname. *Per Terry Dearborn at Dearborn-L Archives August 1997.
Thomas Dearborn is born. Nov 1, 1632 (1632-1710)
Dearborn is born. 22 Mar 1633 (1633/34-1724)

(Goody?) dies at age 57.
marries Dorothy Dalton, widow of Philemon Dalton. 25 Nov. 1662
completes his Will and names Dorothy as his wife, lists that a
granddaughter Ann "Shatredg"* lives in his household, and
states that all his 3 daughters are living in 1680, as well as Thomas,
Henry and John. No son William is listed. *His daughter

PER: Dearborn-L Archives: On

"Godfrey and his family came to America by 5 June 1639,
when he signed (by making his "D" mark) the "Exeter Combination," an agreement for self-government signed by 35 men, at the establishment of Exeter,
NH. Godfrey was one of the followers of Rev. John Wheelwright, the founder of Exeter, who was from Alford, Lincolnshire (just a few miles from Hannah),
and was banished from the Mass. Bay Colony in 1639 along with his flock, for supporting his sister-in -law, the celebrated
Anne Hutchinson, in the Antinomian
Godfrey lived in Exeter for about ten years after which he moved to the neighboring town of Hampton, NH. He built a house (still standing at 73 Exeter Rd.
[Rte 27]) reputed today to be the oldest frame house in the state."
Note: Exeter, never officially incorporated, is the only NH town settled
for religious reasons where founder John Wheelwright and his 175 followers
could practice their Puritan beliefs undisturbed following Wheelwright's
banishment from Boston (the Massachusetts Bay Colony). Exeter's tiered
local government, called the Exeter Combination, became a model for town
meetings and selectmen-ruled communities all over the state of NH.
Godfrey served as a selectman in Exeter NH and again in Hampton NH where he
moved to in 1648. He owned farms in both communities.
