Miss Washburn, married to Robert Jackson is mentioned in court testimony regarding her father's Will. Robert Jackson "protested against the said will on behalf of his DECEASED wife and two female children, that are now living, had by the daughter of the aforesaid testator."

It is highly recommended that the reader see article concerning Robert's wives by Harry Macy Jr.[3] An excerpt follows:

"The idea that Robert Jackson's wife was Agnes Washburn derives from two documents. Court testimony in 1659 regarding William Washburn's will establishes that Jackson was married to Washburn's daughter (without giving her name), and Jackson's own 1683 will names a wife Agnes. What the creators of "Agnes Washburn" failed to notice was that the court testimony clearly states that Jackson's wife was deceased. . . "

Mr. Macy goes on to make the argument that it is very likely that Robert was married in England prior to coming to the Colonies, and that this first wife's name is unknown. He probably married William Washburn(e)'s daughter but her given name is not known. Later he married the widow Agnes Puddington, maiden name unknown. Mr. Macy is a distinguished genealogist and his conclusions are worthy of study. A similar discussion is currently found here.
