In the parish register of St. Mary Arches appears the following entry: "26 March 1627 Mr. Thomas Trobrige and Elizabeth daughter of Mrs. Alice Marshall widoe married, Jeremy Short parson."  

FROM THE TROWBRIDGE GENEALOGY BY FRANCIS B. TROWBRIDGE

Both the Trowbridge and Marshall families were prominent and well to do families in Taunton, England. The Trowbridges were identified with woolen trade and manufacturing. Thomas Trowbridge left his son John in England and the rest of the family came to Dorchester, Mass. sometime about 1636. It is believed his wife died in New Haven, Conn. about 1641. He returned to England to settle his affairs, leaving his sons with a servant. The Civil War in England it is believed kept him from returning to America.
 

THOMAS TROWBRIDGE, THE FIRST TO COME TO AMERICA, CIRCA 1636

Written by unknown descendant

From the webpage of Sylvie Higgins Paine
"For what reason did Thomas Trowbridge come to America? First let me go over some oral history passed down over the years in our branch of the Trowbridge family. Thomas Trowbridge came to this country to start a trade route, it was a business reason only. He planned to return to England after his business was fully established. The reason he brought his family was he would be here for a few years. Note, he left his oldest son John in England under the care of his father, why? When Thomas Trowbridge's wife died in America, it was believed that the reason he left his sons here under the care of a former servant, was that he planned to return. Our oral history has Thomas returning to England to settle the estate of his late wife. Why did he remain in England, and leave his sons in America? Or why didn't he send for his sons and have them return to England? This was a mystery for our branch of family. Note, on Jan. 19, 1663-4, Thomas Trowbridge executed and sent to his three sons a power of attorney, making over to them jointly and severally his property in New England wherever found, to be retained and equally divided between them."

"In 1991 I wrote to the Somerset County Council, Taunton, England. I was sent a packet of material from which I found the following on Thomas Trowbridge, which gives a clue to his return from America, circa 1641. It states, Thomas Trowbridge served as a Captain in the Parliamentary Army during the English Civil War. This suggests that his reasons for leaving England in 1636 were religious and that he returned to England to take part in the resistance to King Charles I. The document is clear that he served directly under the Roundhead leader, Robert Blake, commander of the besieged garrison of Taunton in 1645, and probably remained in England to enjoy the more liberal regime of Cromwell's Commonwealth. By the time the restoration of Charles II took place in 1660 he would have been at least 60 years of age and probably too old to remove himself to America."

"In the Quarter Sessions records for Somerset (Somerset Record Office) are a number of petitions, mostly undated but of about 1650, addressed to the Justices of the Peace from Parliamentary supporters of King Charles I. Among them is that of Emanuell Butler of Taunton, cordwainer (shoemaker) part of which reads as follows:

'That Emanuell Butler during the several sieges of Taunton was a faithfull souldier in the States service under the command of Captain Thomas Trubbridge in the regiment of Collonel Robert Blake in which service he received a shott from the enemy through the bodie and stood in great hazard of his life. By the meanes he is in a great measure disenabled to gett maintainance for himselfe and his wife and child and he hath lost three sonnes in the States service' - The petition is supported and signed: Thos. Trowbridge."

"There can be little doubt that the Captain under whom Butler served was our ancestor after his return from America and before his death in 1672. There can be little doubt, having this evidence, that it was the oppressive regime of Charles I that decided Thomas Trowbridge to emigrate to the New World circa 1636 and that he returned to England to fight as a 'Roundhead' officer in the Parliamentary army. Robert Blake was one of the most famous Parliamentary leaders and under Cromwell's Commonwealth became Admiral of the English navy. Despite appalling siege conditions he held Taunton against superior forces which destroyed at least a third of its houses, until its relief in 1645. The inference of the above petition is that Thomas Trowbridge was present in Taunton throughout the siege."

 

TAUNTON DEANE EXTRACTS, RECORDS FROM TAUNTON, ENGLAND

From the webpage of Sylvie Higgins Paine

"April 3, 1652, Thomas Trowbridge of Taunton, gent., was admitted to a parcel of land late of the waste of the lord, lying behind the stable of the castle of Taunton and near the west gate of the said castle, containing three daynes of land and one little parcel of land lying near the river of Tone and the pond of the castle called the Mote, extending from the water gate to the said parcel of land behind the stable, containing four daynes of land in the tithing of Hull, sometime the land of William Hill and late of John Trowbridge, deceased, by surrender of John Lane. (the surrender to Lane, made by John Trowbridge in 1649, was a mortgage to secure 43 pounds 4s)" "This is the only found information that Thomas Trowbridge held land in Taunton after his return from America, and the only information relating to his inheriting land from his father, John Trowbridge."
 


RECORDS FROM TAUNTON, THOMAS TROWBRIDGE, OUR FOUNDER

From the webpage of Sylvie Higgins Paine


"A subsidy roll (taxation list) for Taunton Borough, dated 15812, heldat the Somerset Record Office, shows Thomas Trobrydge as paying 6 poundsin respect of goods. Only seven others were paying more than this and eleven further men were also assessed at 6 pounds. This shows that Thomas was a man of wealth"

"The Taunton Deane manor records show the gradual build-up of the estate of Thomas Trowbridge, date 1620. The commercial importance of Thomas Trowbridge within the borough is shown by the number of licences whichhe purchased to prosecute tenants of Taunton Deane (mainly for debt) beyond the jurisdiction of the manor court." "Extract from the fine books of Taunton Deane manor. Records of absolute and conditional surrenders, 1630-1649. 'Jan. 9, 16323. Thomas Trowbridge surrendered a cottage with curtilage of 3 daynes of land in Millane, a cottage in the same tithing, a messuage and 5 acres of bondland in the said tithing, and another messuage and 5 acres of bondland there, late of Thomas Trowbridge his grandfather, to use of Francis Ancketill of Yard, esq."
 

THE MARSHALL FAMILY

TROWBRIDGE, Thomas, the first of his family to come to America, was the son of John Trowbridge, a wealthy merchant and prominent citizen of Taunton, Somersetshire. His father had long been identified with the woolen trade in Taunton, which was noted for its manufacture of that staple, and it was natural that the son when he grew up should turn his attention to some branch of that industry, and he is found in early manhood established in business as a mercer in the neighboring city of Exeter in Devonshire At the time when he took up his residence there he found that the name Trowbridge was a well-known and respected one in Exeter, with which members of the family had beer long identified through business and residence, and there also his sister Prudence went to live after her marriage in 1621 to William Mace, a leading merchant of the city. In the pedigree of the Marshall family of Exeter was found the name of "Thomas Trobridge of Taunton." This reference was the clue that led to the finding of the record of the marriage of Thomas Trowbridge. In the list of marriage licenses issued for the diocese of Exeter-it is recorded that on March 24, 1627, Thomas Trowbridge of the parish of St. Petrock was licensed to marry Elizabeth Marshall of the parish of St. Mary Arches. In the parish register of St. Mary Arches appears the following entry; "26 March 1627 Mr. Thomas Trobrige and Elizabeth daughter of Mre Alec Marshall widow, married, Jeremy Short parson." In the parish register of St.Petrocks, Exeter, are recorded the following:

Elizabeth Marshall, the wife of Thomas Trowbridge, was a member of a family of the name that flourished in Exeter during the seventeenth century. The first of the name mentioned by Westcot's "Devonshire Families" is William Marshall, who had issue Robert Marshall, who married Joan, daughter and heir of Owsley of Chillington, county Somerset. His will, dated August 7, 1576, was proved by her Oct. 9 following, (prerogative court of Canterbury, carew, 29,) in it he is described as of Ashewille in the parish of Ilminster, and desires to be buried in the churchyard of Ilminster. He gives to his son Edmund Marshall his rynes and bark and his tanne vates with a mill to grind bark, (from this bequest it seems that he was by trade a tanner.); mentions his sons, John, Nicholas, Willima, and John (the younger) and Thomas (all under age.) and appoints his wife Joan (who appears to have brought him some property) sole executrix and residuary legatee. He appears to have had two other children, Roger and Anne, who may have been twins, born posthumous. His wife, as ?Joanne Marshall?, had been named as sister in the will of William Owseley of Chillington, near Ilminster, in Somerset, dated October 8, 1558.

(Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Wells 22.)

John Marshall (the younger) probably settled in Exeter in early life. He was ?the worshipful Mr. John Marshall.? He was Bailiff of Exeter in 1601, sheriff in 1609, and mayor in 1615. retaining afterwards the position of Alderman. He married at St. Mary Arches 30 August 1595, Alice Bevys (Bevy or Beavis), daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Prouz) Bevys. The Bevys family is traced to Devonshire to the reign of Henry IV. Richard Bevys became sheriff of Exeter in 1591, governor of the Guild Mechant Adventurers in 1594,and mayor in 1602, dying Aug. 26 of the latter year. He made a deed of trust June 16, 1602, to William Tickle and John Marshall, Gent., for a benefaction to provide marriage portions during future years to worthy young women of several parishes. His wife, Elizabeth Prouz (Prouze, Prowse, Prowse, was probably a relative of Richard Prowse, mayor of Exeter in 1578. According to the pedigree of Prouze of Chagford, near Exeter, a very old family, Richard the mayor was the second son of Lawrence Prouz of Exeter and estate of Chagford going to Lawrence?s eldest son, John, who had a daughter Elizabeth, apparently of about the age of Elizabeth, married to Richard Bevys. The will of Nicholas Bevys, son of Richard, a merchant of Exeter, dated November 8, 1612, and proved June 2, 1613, named as one of the executors of ?my brother John Marshall.? Of the other sons of Richard Bevys, Peter and Richard, the former was more prominent and became lord of the manor of Bishops?s List, near Exeter. The family is traced in Devonshire to the reign of Henry IV.?

BY FRANCIS BACON TROWBRIDGE
It must be remembered that the Civil War in England began soon after Thomas Trowbridge left America. Taunton was taken by the Parliament forces in August, 1642, and the principal gentry of the neighborhood, the trained hands, the mayor, and principal inhabitants of the town aided with horse and foot the intention of securing this place for the Parliament. The attempt to secure and fortify Taunton in the interests of the Parliament soon met with a temporary impediment and defeat, for in the next year the marquess of Hertford drove out the Parliament forces and took possession of it in favor of the King. But the fruits of this victory were not lasting, for on July 8, 1644, soon after the battle of Marston Moor, Colonel Blake and Sire Robert Pye again took Taunton for the Parliament. For some months things remained in a quiet state at Taunton, but early in the spring of 1645, an army of ten thousand of the kings forces under Lord Goring marched to the attack of the town and began what is known as the siege of Taunton. The history of the siege, ending with the final relief of the town, is well known.

Thomas Trowbridge after the death of his father came into his inheritance, being the only surviving son. He succeeded his father as the chief Trowbridge in Taunton, just as the latter had succeeded his father, and that he was a man of consequence there is shown by the prominence given him in the pedigree in the wife's family, which has been previously quoted. He rote often to the authorities in New Haven to bring Gibbons to an account for his breach of trust, but Gibbons kept possession of the Trowbridge estates in New Haven for many years, and affairs remained thus until the sons came of age.

They had continued in the meantime to pass their boyhood under the care of Sergeant Jeffrey, their father evidently being satisfied with that arrangement. They had received a good education under the instruction of Mr. Ezekiel Cheever, the famous colonial schoolmaster who taught the first school in New Haven. In the colony records it is noted that at a court held Feb. 8, 1643-44, "Mr. Cheever desired 4-3-6 out of the estate of Mr. Trowbridge which is justly due him for teaching the children." The course of instruction to be pursued by the schoolmaster for his cholars at that time was "after they are entered and can read in the Testament; to perfect them in English; and teach them Latin tongue as they are capable, and to write."

Soon after he came of age William Trowbridge endeavored to have an accounting made of his father's estate that was left in New Haven, and for this end presented to the court two letters from his father, one dated March 6, 1655, and the other, March 4, 1658, wherein his father wrote that he "marvells that there is not an account of it given." This attempt to to recover from Gibbons was a failure, but finally, on January 19, 1663-64, Mr. Trowbridge executed, and sent to his three sons a power of attorney, makiing over to them jointly and severally the property in New England wherever found, to be retained and equally divided between them, and bring the said Gibbons to account and punishment:

"To all Christian people in whom this present writing shall come greeting: Know ye that I Thomas Trowbridge of Taunton in ye county of Somerset. Gent doe hereby make ordaine, constitute and depute and in my place and stead put my three sons Thomas Trowbridge and William Trowbridge of New Haven, and James Trowbridge of Dorchester in ye Bay in New England in ye ports of America beyond ye seas, to be my true and lawfull attornies, jointly, and severally for me and to my name to aske, sue for, and chattles whatsover, which I left in trust in New England aftersaid with Henry Gibbons, sometimes my servant, or doe otherwise belongs unto me and upon detaining thereof or of any particular parcell therof, to are or any particuar parcell theroff, to arrest, attach, call to an account, sue implead and imprison ye said Henry Gibbons, and all and every other person and persons whatsover in whose lands, custody, or possession of my estate, houses, lotts, goods, eattel and chattels whatsoever are or have or hath beene in any way or course of law or equity.

The sons sued Gibbons for possesion, but as matters were found, a settlement could not easily be effected before Mr. Trowbridge's death, which occurred in Taunton, Feb. 7, 1672-3. The suit was finally settled in 1680 by Gibbons "for sundry good cause best known to myself, who made a deed of the property for Thomas Trowbridge, the younger to take effect after the death of Gibbons. This deed included his house and lot, and sundry other property including "the bed and bolster I lie on."

"To all people to whom the present writing shall come greeting. I Henry Gibbons of New Haven in New England husbandman bring greeting.

[New Haven Land Records, vol. 1, p. 162]

Gibbons died in 1686, and as his brother William Gibbons refused to take out letters of administration, Thomas Trowbridge was appointed administrator, and as the said Henry Gibbons had no children, the matter was concluded.

"...forasmuch as the whole estate of Thomas Trowbridge of Newhaven is to be sequestred for the paymt of his debts, (he absenting himself, and takeing no course concerning the same) and his famyly to be disolved, Sargeant Geffrey and his wife being willing to take the children of the said Thomas Trowbridge upon tearmes as followeth, thatt he may have 20 bushells of corne, a brass pot, and a bed for the children to lye upon, the Court ordered thatt the children should be putt to the said Sargeant Jeffrey upon the said tearmes; provided thatt in case their father shall come over, or send to take order concerning them, thatt then he will referr himself to the court to judg and determine whatt is equall for him to have for keeping of them, & in the meane time he will take care thatt they be well educated and nurtered in the feare of God.

The name of Trowbridge is of high antiquity in England as persons bearing the name are found to have lived during the reign of William the Conqueror. The first of the name are found in Trowbridge, a market town and parish in Wiltshire, England, which town received its name from that of one of the family, being their residence for many centuries and the property of one of the name in the reign of Edward I. The name of Trowbridge first appears in the Doomsday book. Trowbridge formerly had a castle but no trace now remains. It was besieged by Stephen about A. D. 1135. A younger branch of the Trowbridges settled in Somersetshire as early as 1541. They resided at Taunton in that county and from this branch sprang the Trowbridges of America. That the Taunton family descended from that of Wiltshire is sufficiently proven by their arms, precisely the same as those seen in the stained glass window of the chancel of St. James Church, Taunton, England. (Copied from "History of Woodbury, Connecticut") John Trowbridge, the grand father of the first settler in America, lived at Hutton, Somerset county, England, and died there in 1575. In his will, dated February 17, 1575, he names two sons, Thomas and Edmund, the former being remembered to this day for his bequest to the poor, the income of which is annually distributed in the parish church of St. Mary Magdalen, at Taunton, England. The latter, Edmund, was the father of the emigrant ancestor, Thomas. John Trowbridge's will named as executor his two brothers, both named Thomas and designated as Thomas, Sr., and Thomas Jr., after an idiotic custom of out English forefathers. These cases of two sons of the same name living at the same time are great sources of grief to the genealogists of the present day. Edmund Trowbridge was given five silver spoons and a gold ring by his father.

(I) Thomas Trowbridge, son of Edmund Trowbridge, mentioned above, was born in England, about 1610. He came from Taunton, Somersetshire, England, and settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony, as early as 1636. His wife joined the church there in 1636, and their son was born there that year. He drew a lot of land January 2, 1637, and at various times after that. Later in 1638 or early in 1639, however, he removed to New Haven. He was in the foreign shipping business and he continued in business, making voyages between the Barbadoes and England. He owned a house and lot in New Haven as early as 1639, but was apparently not living there. He and his wife and three children were living there in 1643 and he was rated as one of the richest men of the colony, paying taxes on five hundred pounds. In 1644 Mr. Cheever, the celebrated pedagogue, received payment for teaching Trowbridge's children; evidently the children were well educated for their day. He went to England in 1644, leaving his three sons and all his American property in charge of Henry Gibbons, who proved unfaithful to his trust. Sergeant Thomas Jeffries took the boys into his own family. Thomas Trowbridge wrote often from England to have Gibbons brought to account, but without avail. Even a power of attorney to his sons was not effective. Thomas Trowbridge died in Taunton, England, February 7, 1672, and soon afterward Gibbons gave to the sons a deed of everything he had, even to the bed he slept on, in an endeavor to make good the property of the family. When Gibbons died in 1686 Thomas Trowbridge was appointed his administrator and recovered all there was left of his father's estate in New Haven.
