Thomas Robinson

1652 - 1708

Father Thomas Robinson
Mother  
Wife Alice
Children ?, Thomas, Samuel, John, Elizabeth


Thomas was born in Tideswell in 1652, the son of Thomas (1). Its not clear exactly who his siblings were as they may have been two different Thomases having children at around the same period (1).

His wife's identity is not certain, but she was probably called Alice (3). He seemingly married in his late teens as his first known child died young a few months after his twentieth birthday (4). His next son was Thomas, born in 1673 (5), followed by Samuel in 1677 (6) and John in 1681 (7). John died in 1684 (8), a few months before Thomas's only daughter Elizabeth was born (9).

Alice, if she was his wife, died in 1703 (10), and Thomas in 1708 (11).


Brief details of his children:



Sources:

  1. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [February 1651]
    Bapt Thomas Robinson son of Thomas [8]

    The day of the month is difficult to read. I think it more likely to be an 8, but Val Neal's transcript of the original gives it as the 5th. Whichever is the case, this is dated by the Julian calendar, so is actually January 1652 in the Gregorian calendar.
  2. See his father's page
  3. Based on the burial of an otherwise unknown Alice, wife of Thomas Robinson in 1703 (10).
  4. Bishop's Transcript of the Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell (transcript by Val Neal), includes the entry:
    Buried 18/6/1672 - child of Thomas Robinson
  5. Bishop's Transcript of the Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell (transcript by Val Neal), includes the entry:
    Baptised 13/7/1673 - Thomas, son of Thomas Robinson
  6. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [Novembris 1677]
    Baptiz erat Samuelis filius Thome Robinson de Tiddswall   21
  7. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell (transcript by Val Neal), includes the entry:
    Baptised 8/6/1681 - John, son of Thomas Robinson. However I was unable to find this entry in sequence in the microfilm of the PR, and it is not listed in the IGI. As Thomas did have a son John buried 18 months later though, I'm guessing it probably appears out of sequence amongst some of these hard to read earliest extant pages.
  8. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [January 1683]
    Sepult erat Johannes filius Thomasin Robinson de Tiddswall   2

    This is dated by the Julian calendar, so is actually 2/1/1684 in the Gregorian calendar.
  9. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [May 1684]
    Baptiz Elizabetha filia Thomam Robinson de Tideswell   29
  10. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [September 1703]
    Sept Ales wife of Thomas Robinson de Tiddswall   21
  11. Parish Register of St John the Baptist, Tideswell, includes the entry:
    [March 1707]
    Sepult Thomas Robinson senior de Tyddeswell   16

    This is dated by the Julian calendar, so is actually 16/3/1708 in the Gregorian calendar.
