I have never seen any credible evidence that Apphia's surname was Hughes. Seems to be an urban myth. Also, while Richard Bushrod purchased land in Westmoreland Co, there's no evidence he lived, died, or was buried there. In fact, all records for him say he was "of" Gloucester or York Co. In the last record that mentions him, dtd in 1670 after his death, Henry Whiting brought suit in Gloucester Co in right of his wife Apphia, widow of "Richard Bushrod of York County."

     "We have discussed on this list many times who Hannah, the wife of John Attaway Clarke, might be. I had really thought she was Hannah Clarke, his first cousin, but now I've changed my mind. This is what I found:
     "In 1721 Rev. Lawrence de Butts received the customary bounty of 20 lbs. to sail to VA and soon after reported to Gov. Spotswood who assigned him to Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co. He also served in St. Stephen's Parish in Northumberland, Farnham in Richmond and Cople Parish in Westmoreland. In 1735 Mr. de Butts removed to MD, and describing himself as "of the parish of William and Mary in St. Mary's County, in the Province of Maryland," he in 1752 made a deed for 450 ac. in Prince William Co., VA to Wharton Randsdell (Pr. Wm. Co. Records). In the same year, Robert de Butts of Frederick Co., in MD, gave a power of attorney to Henry Lee, stating that his brother Rev. Lawrence de Butts, late of SMC, MD, had died intestate. (Northumberland Co. Records). (CD 186, Family History, VA Genealogies #2).
     "NOTE: Robert DeButts, brother of Rev. Lawrence DeButts married a daughter of Rev. John Donaldson and wife, Elizabeth ____of St. Mary's Co. He moved to Frederick Co., MD and married second, Abagail White, daughter of John White. His will is below. Notice that he devised personal estate to John Hattaway Clark (this, of course, must be John Attaway Clark).

(Robert Vaulx and Elizabeth, his wife, one of the daughters and legatees of Rodham Kenner, 8/21/1712) ; and (3) Rev. Lawrence De Butts. In his will dated 1/18/1727, Richard Kenner mentions his sister, Elizabeth DeButts. (CD 186, VA Genealogies #2).
     "I believe that Rev. Lawrence DeButts and Elizabeth Kenner had two daughters. One was Elizabeth DeButts who married Arthur Sinclair by 1753. The other daughter was, in my opinion, Hannah DeButts (named for her grandmother, Hannah Fox) who married John Attaway Clarke.

     "In 1721 Rev. Lawrence de Butts received the customary bounty of 20 lbs. to sail to VA and soon after reported to Gov. Spotswood who assigned him to Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co. He also served in St. Stephen's Parish in Northumberland, Farnham in Richmond and Cople Parish in Westmoreland. In 1735 Mr. de Butts removed to MD, and describing himself as "of the parish of William and Mary in St. Mary's County, in the Province of Maryland," he in 1752 made a deed for 450 ac. in Prince William Co., VA to Wharton Randsdell (Pr. Wm. Co. Records). In the same year, Robert de Butts of Frederick Co., in MD, gave a power of attorney to Henry Lee, stating that his brother Rev. Lawrence de Butts, late of SMC, MD, had died intestate. (Northumberland Co. Records). (CD 186, Family History, VA Genealogies #2).
     "NOTE: Robert DeButts, brother of Rev. Lawrence DeButts married a daughter of Rev. John Donaldson and wife, Elizabeth ____of St. Mary's Co. He moved to Frederick Co., MD and married second, Abagail White, daughter of John White. His will is below. Notice that he devised personal estate to John Hattaway Clark (this, of course, must be John Attaway Clark).
     "Will of Robert DeButts, FR Co., Gent., 12/10/1752-12/18/1752. Son:
John Donaldson Debutts and my unborn child, land. Daughter: Margaret
Barnard, slaves. Son: John, slaves. Daughter: Mary Ann Christian
Abagail Debutts, slaves. Wife: Abagail, slaves and one lot in
Frederick Town. I make over to John Hattaway Clark and my wife, Abagail

with Kennedy Farrell, I constitute and ordain my sole exs. of my will

     "Elizabeth Kenner, dau. of Rodham Kenner and Hannah Fox, married (1) Richard Bushrod, son of Thomas B. (they had a son named Richard, b. 1712); (2) Robert Vaulx of Westmoreland Co. (Robert Vaulx and Elizabeth, his wife, one of the daughters and legatees of Rodham Kenner, 8/21/1712) ; and (3) Rev. Lawrence De Butts. In his will dated 1/18/1727, Richard Kenner mentions his sister, Elizabeth DeButts. (CD 186, VA Genealogies #2).
     "I believe that Rev. Lawrence DeButts and Elizabeth Kenner had two daughters. One was Elizabeth DeButts who married Arthur Sinclair by 1753. The other daughter was, in my opinion, Hannah DeButts (named for her grandmother, Hannah Fox) who married John Attaway Clarke.

From Dorset Online Parish Clerks:
     "Richardus Bushrodd (1576/7-1628) bap 3rd Feb 1576/7. He is the main beneficiary and executor of his uncle Henry Bushrode's will in 1614 when he is referred to as Richard Bushrode of Dorchester..."
     "Richard BUSHROD (1575-1628) - As outlined in section 1 above Richard BUSHROD was baptised at Sherborne Abbey on 3rd Feb 1576/7 and in his youth would have served an apprenticeship as earliest records (1.14) refer to him as a haberdasher of hats and local bye laws typically required a 7 or 10 year apprenticeship with a Master before becoming a freeman and being allowed to trade within the borough. In all probability this would have been served in Dorchester where the trade was more prevalent and he would have been well known around the town by the time he gained his freedom towards the very end of the century. Unfortunately we will never know for sure as Apprenticeship records only survive from 1613 and Freemen membership records from 1621.
     "Dorchester at the turn of the century was a prosperous trading community, a good place for a young man with a bit of capital to make his way in the world. With it's close proximity to the significant trading port of Weymouth (1.10) and sitting on the junction of a major crossroads to Exeter, Sherborne and the other large port of Poole he was ideally situated and he quickly prospered and gained a position of prominence in the town. When John Roper a gentleman of Dorchester wrote his will on 8th Feb 1597 he thought sufficiently well of the young 22 year old Richard to leave him 10 shillings, usefully referring to him as 'Richard Bushrode the hatter' a phrase he would not have used if he was not already a freeman trading in the town.
     "4. Marriage c 1604 - to Dorothy WATTS (d.1627)
     "Around the year 1604 Richard Bushrod married Dorothy WATTS (d.1627) the daughter of John Watts Senior of Dorchester (1.4 & 1.5) . We are denied knowledge of the actual date as they would have married in her parish which was St Peters and none of the parish registers survive prior to 1653. They settled to live in Holy Trinity Parish however and as shown in Section 11 below they had eleven children there between 1605 and 1626.
Her father John WATTS Senior (d.1627) was a well established and prosperous merchant in Dorchester and a member of the Corporation. We know he owned a house behind South street adjoining the backside of the 'Antelope' as this was one of the 170 houses or so that were destroyed in the great fire at Dorchester in 1613. He had two children that I know of, John and Dorothy. When his son John Watts junior became a Freeman of Dorchester on 12th January 1625/6 he gave his trade as that of a haberdasher so perhaps they were both apprenticed to John Watts Senior. According to Rose-Troup in her biography 'John White the Founder of Massachusetts' , "Richard Bushrod had numerous dealings in connection with his trading in New England with a 'John WATTS of Dorchester' who sailed to Cape Ann and was later accused of stealing salt from one of the islands offshore". It's fairly clear therefore that Richard Bushrod developed his trading with New England with his brother-in-law whom he named as one of the executors of his will.
There is an entry in William Whiteway's diary for the 22nd November 1627 which reads ' The 22nd hereof died Mr John WATS, and the 30th hereof died his daughter Mrs BUSHRODE'. The Parish registers for Holy Trinity confirm that John WATTS was buried on the 23rd November followed by Dorothy the wife of Richard Bushrod on 4th December 1627. Richard therefore lost his wife and father-in-law in the space of 11 days.
Richard and Dorothy's first child Thomas was baptised at Holy Trinity by the curate Richard Everard in June 1605 (1.8). The following November a new Rector was appointed by the King and the Revd John WHITE (1574/5-1648) arrived in Dorchester in late summer of 1606 and started to spread his vision of a 'Godly Community' throughout the town. Not everyone immediately warmed to John White and we find the names of the existing churchwardens (John Baylie and Henry Edwards) disappear from the parish registers in 1607 and only John White's signature is evident on returns for the next couple of years. By July 1610 however the churchwardens have been replaced by Richard Bushrod and Jo. Perkins. Richard was still serving as Churchwarden at the end of 1611 but was by then partnered by the wealthy baker Henry CORBIN (1564-1654).
     "5. The Great Fire of Dorchester - 1613
     "The Great Fire of Dorchester occurred on 6th August 1613, destroyed about half the town, two of the main churches and most of the civic buildings (1.4). This crisis forever established John White's reputation in the town as he tirelessly fought to bring relief to the destitute and raise the funds necessary for rebuilding. David Underdown in his book Fire from Heaven says:-
"The result was a sort of spiritual mass conversion. After the great crisis of the fire came the recognition that what was needed was a total reformation of the town. Fanned by the eloquent preaching of John White, the new civic spirit was to turn Dorchester from a run-of-the-mill provincial backwater into the most 'puritan' town in England".
It's not clear whether Richard's own house was among the 170 houses destroyed by the fire, but we know from the Will left by John Green, and Municipal records that survive, that both John White's and his father-in-law John Watts houses were both lost. Inspired by John White, Richard worked with other leading members of the Corporation, not only to restore the town, but take forward their vision for the future.
     "6. MP for Dorchester - 1614 - 1624 and 1626
     "Following the fire It's no co-incidence that the very next representative of the town in Parliament in 1614 was John White's 38 year old churchwarden Richard Bushrod (1.13) The other MP returned for Dorchester that year was Sir Frances Ashley JP (1569-1635) so it's easy to see that by this date he is moving in the very top circles of the ruling elite in Dorchester. According to John Hutchins, Richard Bushrod was to be returned to Parliament a second time for Dorchester during the 21st year of the reign of James I (3) when he accompanied William Whiteway Senior (1570-1640) and for a third time during the 2nd Parliament of the reign of Charles I . His Parliamentary Career for these last two appearances is more accurately portrayed on the History of Parliament website (1.9) which states: "Bushrod was returned for Dorchester to the 1624 Parliament, but contributed little to its proceedings. Appointed on 22 Mar. to help scrutinize the clerical leases bill, he also exercised his right as a Dorset Member to attend the committee for the bill to settle the customs of Beaminster Secunda manor. However, his primary concern was probably the bill to relieve the members of the London Feltmakers’ Company from the effects of a decree in Chancery. On 14 Apr. he complained in the House about the recent arrest of the Feltmakers’ master, ensuring that this matter was referred to the committee for courts of justice. Named to the bill’s committee on 30 Apr., he attended four of its meetings. He also tendered a proviso to the bill for free fishing in North American waters, but this was rejected (3 May). Bushrod did not serve in the first Caroline Parliament, but recovered his seat in 1626, when he also attended the disputed Dorset election, held at Dorchester. On 17 Feb. he confirmed in the Commons that some of the supporters of John Browne II* had been prevented from voting. Three days later Michael Humfrey, Dorchester’s junior Member, successfully claimed privilege for one of Bushrod’s servants, who had been arrested at Weymouth, Dorset. Bushrod showed a keen interest in the case of the St. Peter of Le Havre, twice commenting on goods reportedly removed from the ship after its controversial arrest in England (23 Feb. and 1 March). Perhaps on this account, he was named on 22 Mar. to help consider defects in the Navy. In his final speech, on the following day, he argued against rushing into a debate on supply, apparently because he wanted more time for Members to digest the Crown’s financial demands, which had just been outlined by Sir John Coke."
     "7. Founding of the Dorchester Hospital - 1616 (1.13)
     "In 1616 John White as a part of his godly reformation set about dealing with the great numbers of poor and needy people who lived by begging and idleness in the town. He turned to the wealthy members of the Corporation and asked for their support in this endeavour and quickly established a fund to enable them to purchase property. In typical fashion John White himself chipped in £10 from his rather meager stipend and Richard Bushrod generously gave £24. The Bailiff William Whiteway senior was the most generous contributing £75 and the rich widow Joan Gould gave £66. 13s. 4d. Two of the capital burgesses John Gould the elder and John Parkins contributed £60 and £40 respectively and the Recorder of Dorchester Sir Francis Ashley gave £20.
     "Having established a fund these major contributors (including Richard Bushrod) purchased on behalf of the Corporation six messuages which lay together on the West side of High South Street. I have marked their location with the Letter 'H' on the black and white copy at the bottom of John Speed's 1611 map of Dorchester. These six houses were converted to form 'The Dorchester Hospital and working house for the relief and setting to work of 50 poor children of the borough'.
     "John White's schemes were always well founded and to guarantee it's future he made collections each year and encouraged the rich to make a bequest or grant annuities to the Hospital in their Wills. His success in this regard is recorded by John Hutchins. The surplus raised in this way was invested in establishing a brewhouse, the profits from which went back to support the hospital. Whilst on the face of it today this may seem strange for a puritan preacher things were very different in the 17th century. Water was not safe to drink so the vast majority drank ale. The first and strongest mash was generally for men, the second brewing was weaker and usually drunk by women, the third and weakest mash was drunk by children. By making a quality brew available at reasonable prices within the town John White was primarily trying to improve the health of the poor and guarantee a permanent income to the hospital.
     "Having set the Hospital on a firm financial footing the corporation employed a discreet man and a sober women to oversee and instruct the children. Whilst their education was no doubt basic and the skills they were taught straightforward it was a significant improvement and the numbers of destitute beggars around Dorchester decreased significantly.
     "8. Bailiff of the Dorchester - 1617, 1624 and 1627 (1.13)
     "Made Capital Burgess - 1623/4
     "Throughout this period Richard Bushrod was steadily adding to his wealth and influence and expanding his business interests. We know from Hutchins that he was first elected Bailiff of Dorchester with Richard Blachford in 1617 and from William Whiteway's Diary that they were both chosen together again on 2nd Oct 1621 to serve for the following year. On 26th January 1623/4 Richard was made a capital burgess of Dorchester.
     "On the 30th January however there was another serious fire in Dorchester which broke out in a malthouse owned by John Adyn, it quickly spread and destroyed about 30 houses in Holy Trinity Parish. This time however relief for the survivors was quickly arranged with some of the homeless being given beer, cheese, other victuals and small sums of money the following day. As before a fund was established and a collection by John White at St Peters Church the following Sunday raised nearly £58. They eventually raised £555 but this took time to bring in with 14 counties for example making a contribution. On 14th April 1623 Richard Bushrod brought in £100 which he said was "to be lent unto those that had lost by the late fyre" but was to be repaid midsummer next out of the monies that shall come in by the collection. Whether he was repaid or not we do not know but he lived in Holy Trinity Parish so could have been affected himself.
     "As mentioned in section 6 above he was elected MP for Dorchester in 1626. His third and final year as Bailiff also came that year when he was elected again on 2nd Oct 1626 (1.11) . With his increasing prosperity Richard steadily purchased properties elsewhere in Dorset but the only place I have managed to identify so far is Glanvilles Wootton which is mentioned in his will. He had been a merchant adventurer for many years however by 1624, investing in the fur trade and fishing for Cod in New England. The fish was salted and together with a variety of cured pelts brought back to be sold on the continent where the fish & furs fetched a higher price. He then bought dowlis, treager and other types of linen cloth which he imported via Weymouth. This triangular trading proved very profitable
     "9. The Dorchester Company 1624-1626
     "A strong supporter of the puritan movement and the ideals espoused by John White his knowledge of New England and the opportunities it presented was crucial to what followed. White persuaded him that a colony could be formed of the surplus men required for fishing who were then employed to double man his ships. They formed a plan to leave them on the coast subsisting off the land and growing crops so that they would become self sufficient and be able to rejoin the fishing fleet next season.
     "John White felt that this could form the nucleus for a larger colony and a refuge for those persecuted for their religion, both from those wishing to leave the separatists at Plymouth and from England. They together with other like minded friends and traders came together to take the issue forward and formed the Dorchester Company so Richard Bushrod was one of its founding and most influential members. He acted as their representative in applying for the necessary authority for a patent to settle a plantation in New England which was granted by the Council for New England on 18th February 1622/3 (5 & 6) .
     "We have a small insight into the trading being done when the ‘Amytie’ and the ‘Fellowship’ two ships employed by the Dorchester company return from New England on 1st August and the 15th September 1625. They bring with them ‘dry fish, corfish [codfish] , train oil, quarters of oak and skins of Fox, racons [raccoons] , martyn’s [pine marten], otter, muskuatche [muskrat], and beaver’ and are unloaded by Richard Bushrod and William Derby. Even after some of his business ventures, and the Dorchester Company failed in 1626 Richard persisted with John White and others in setting up the foundations for, and was listed as a member of, the New England Company (1627-1628).
     "On the 11th April 1628 Soldiers which had been billeted in Dorset were sent to Plymouth on their way to the siege of La Rochelle under the command of the Earle of Denbigh. Unfortunately they were left behind and returned to Dorset again. 23 of these were due to return to Dorchester, but were refused entry. Richard Bushrod was named as the main cause of the resistance to re-billiting. However a sympathetic commission of enquiry into his conduct consisting of Sir Thomas Trenchard, Sir John Brewen, John Browne and Henry Drak Esq concluded in May that he had simply disputed the authority of the billeting warrants.
10. Death and Will - 1628
     "Unfortunately Richard BUSHROD only outlived his wife and father-in-law by 7 months and died at the age of 52 on 1st July 1628 (1.11) . I would have expected him to be buried at Holy Trinity Church with his wife and father-in-law but he is not in the parish register so was probably interred at St Peters as he gave his executors discretion over where he was to be buried in his will which I have transcribed below."2 GAV-9.

From Dorset Online Parish Clerks:
     1. His Parents
His father was John BUSHROD (d.1590) Senior a husbandman who operated a smallholding at Sherborne where he lived with his family. We know from his Will that they were reasonably comfortable by standards of the day as they had at least 8 acres of ground on which they grew their own wheat, maize, barley and a crop called dredge which was a mixture of different types of corn like wheat and barley but often included oats. They had an old wayne or cart and had at least one heifer, 24 sheep and some ewes which were probably grazed on the village common.
     He also had an uncle, his fathers brother Henry BUSHROD (d.1614) a yeoman who lived at Tarrent Crawford in Dorset who died in 1614. He left a will (PROB 11/124) dated 10th Sep 1612 which was proved on 12th July 1614 in which he asked to be buried in the churchyard at Tarrent Crawford and left bequests to the children of Robert Bushrod (1580-1610) and to Margeri Bushrod (b1582/3) the children of his deceased brother John (see 5 & 6 immediately below) .
     His father had married his mother Margery nee FELTONS in Sherborne Abbey on 7th Oct 1571 (2) when the ceremony was in all probability carried out by the resident vicar Revd. George Holman (d.1580) . At least six children were born from the marriage, the four survivors being named in John's will which was proved in 1590. They were all baptised in Sherborne Abbey:-
(1) John Bushroodes [Bushrod] (b.1572) bap 16th August 1572; son and heir who inherited the smallholding from his father in 1590. His children appear to be a beneficiaries under his Uncle Henry Bushrode's will in 1614 where he is referred to as John Bushrode late of Sherborne and they are left £5 each when they are 21.
      (2) Richardus Bushrod (1575-1575/6) bap 22 May 1575 and buried at Sherborne 29 Feb 1575/6
      (3) Richardus Bushrodd (1576/7-1628) bap 3rd Feb 1576/7. He is the main beneficiary and executor of his uncle Henry Bushrode's will in 1614 when he is referred to as Richard Bushrode of Dorchester. . (subject of biography see Section 3 below)
      (4) William Bushrod (1578-1578) bap 10th Aug 1578 and buried at Sherborne 17th same month
      (5) Robert Bushrot [Bushrod] (1580-1610) bap 15th May 1580; he was left £5, ten sheep and a silver spoon in his fathers will in 1590. He lived in Castleton, a parish which surrounds most of Sherborne, where he worked as a cordwainer and died at the young age of 30 in 1610. There is a grant of administration concerning his estate at the Wiltshire Archives with an inventory of his goods which we need to obtain but their website is currently (Aug 2015) being revised and copies of wills are not likely to be available until next year. Robert obviously married and had at least 3 children. They are referred to in two wills. His uncle Henry Bushrod's will in 1614 leaves £30 to 'Henry Bushrode the son of Robert Bushrode of Sherborne lately deceased to be paid at the age of one and twenty years, '. A second bequest leaves £20 to each of Robert's other two sons but they are not named. Henry receiving the larger amount probably meant he was the eldest and possibly named after his uncle. We do know the name of one of the other sons as Richard Bushrod (1576/7-1628)'s will in 1628 states "I give to my brother Robert BUSHROD his son William BUSHROD the sum of twenty pounds more than the legacy given him by my uncle Henry BUSHROD late deceased of Craford [i.e. Tarrant Crawford] "
      (6) Margeri [Margery] Bushrod (b.1582/3) bap 16th March 1582/3 she was left £6. 13s 4d in her fathers will in 1590 and married aged 15 to Robert Rapsey in Sherborne on 13th June 1597. She is a beneficiary under her uncle Henry Bushrode's will in 1614 when she is described as being of Taunton when she received £20 to be paid seven years after his decease but the interest in the meantime employed for her benefit.
     John BUSHROD Senior was buried at Sherborne Abbey on 26th March 1590 and Richard's elder brother John BUSHROD Junior was to inherit most of their fathers estate (see transcription of will in the next section below). Richard and his brother Robert receiving five pounds of lawful English money, ten sheep and a silver spoon each. Second and third sons of families like this were often apprenticed into suitable trades and they had to be between the ages of 10 and 18. Richard was 13 when his father died and if not already apprenticed Margery would have arranged for his indentures as we know he became a haberdasher by trade operating in Dorchester. His younger brother Robert was only just 10 when his father died and he appears to have become a cordwainer operating in Castleton a parish which virtually surrounds Sherborne. His sister Margery then only 7 years old had a higher cash sum of six pounds thirteen shillings and four pence but no other bequests and as can be seen above was married at the young age of 15. John's widow Margerie died just before the turn of the century being buried at Sherborne on 1st Nov 1599.2 "
In John Bushrod's will dated 17 March 1589/90 at Sherborne, Dorsetshire, England, Richard I Bushrod was named as an heir;

     "Children Baptised Holy Trinity Church Dorchester (1605-1626)
     Richard and Dorothy had the following children. All those shown as living at Richards death are mentioned in his will. Where I have some additional confirmation I have commented in brackets in italics.
     (1) Thomas BUSHROD [1605-1677] Baptised 12 June 1605 at Holy Trinity Church in Dorchester: He married Wilmot PARKINS the sister-in-law of William WHITEWAY the diarist on 21 July 1629, presumably at St Peters where records do not survive, but their marriage is recorded in William Whiteway's diary. Thomas was admitted as a Freeman of Dorchester on 7 Jan 1629/30 by which time he is described as a merchant. Whiteway's diary also states against their marriage that 'he went bankrupt within a year and a half'.They nevertheless had a son John Bushrod baptised at Holy Trinity on the 9th September 1632. He is referred to in William Whiteway's diary as being born on 31 Aug 1632 but he died on 1 April 1633 and was buried at Holy Trinity Church the next day. There may have been complications with the birth because his wife Wilmot died on 21 April 1633 and was buried 2 days later. Thomas emigrated to New England arriving about 1635 and was a beneficiary under his brother Samuel's will in 1647. He married again to a Mary Piersey in York Virginia about 1656 and later to Elizabeth Nowell in 1661. He died there 24 April 1677.
     (2) John BUSHROD [1606/7 - Bef 1612] Baptised 8 Jan 1606/7 Holy Trinity Dorchester, died pre 1612 (See 4 below) he may have been buried at St Peters.
     (3) Anne BUSHROD - Baptised 21 April 1608 Holy Trinity Dorchester, She married Rev. Samuel WHITFEILD [WHITFELDE] the rector of All Saints church in Dorchester in her own parish church of Holy Trinity on 24 Apr 1628. Unfortunately Samuel became ill and died on the 5th July 1628. They had a posthumous daughter named Mary Whitfield baptised at Holy Trinity on 15th March 1628/9 and she was living in 1646 when she is mentioned as a potential beneficiary under the will of Samuel Bushrod (para 6 below) . Ann now a widow is said to have remarried on 21 May 1631 to a Mr Marshall and Ann is the 'sister Marshall' also referred to in Samuel's Will.
     (4) John BUSHROD [1612-1683/4] The Elder - Baptised 23 April 1612 Holy Trinity Dorchester. It is difficult to know exactly when John was born as we have a large gap between the baptism of his sister Anne in 1608 and his own baptism here in 1612. We do however have a nice steady progression in births from the outset, apart from this gap, and the most likely explanation is that Dorothy lost a pregnancy around the year 1610. On the face of it therefore I have had to assume that John was only about 14 or 15 when he married Mary TILSED in St John the Baptist's church at Bere Regis on 4th day of October 1626 (7).
     There is a further indication that John Bushrode was very young when he married as 15 days after the wedding on 19th Oct 1626 he is admitted as a full member of the Company of Freemen. His membership entry however unusually has a side note that he was still 'apprenticed to the clothier John DALE '. Normally admission to the Company was reserved until after they had served their apprenticeship which would not have started until he was at least 10 years old and typically lasted for 7 or even 10 years. Some Apprenticeship records for Dorchester survive from 1613 and have been listed in the Municipal Records but it is not clear how complete these are. Two apprentices for John Dale the Clothier are recorded in 1619 and 1622 but not one for John Bushrod? I think his elevation may have been because of ill health in his family as his youngest sibling was born that year and his maternal grandfather John Watt's and his mother Dorothy both died in 1627 followed by his father in 1628 so he was probably having to help run his fathers business with his elder brother Thomas. His brother Thomas ends up emigrating to New England c1635 so he may have been away in 1626 dealing with their business interests in France or New England, leaving John in charge at Dorchester. By 1635 when Thomas emigrated John Bushrod was already well established in the Corporation in Dorchester, and given the triangular trading of Cod and furs from New England to France and continental goods to Dorchester carried out by the family, it makes a great deal of business sense, but we are getting ahead of ourselves.
     After marriage at Bere Regis John brought Mary to Dorchester where they settled initially to live in Holy Trinity Parish. The following year Mary gave birth to a son :-
     (4.1) John Bushrod (1627-1670/1) the younger who was baptised at Holy Trinity Church on 16th Dec 1627. It is also difficult to follow his career because of the interruption of the Civil War (1642-1651) and disruption to the church records during the Parliamentary period. He appears to have married a Catherine some time after the end of the war. She may well have been a native of Dorchester as it was traditional to marry in the brides parish and parish records for All Saints and St Peters have not survived prior to 1653 and those for Fordington are missing for the entire period 1640 to 1663. We know of Catherine from her burial at All Saints church in Dorchester on 24th July 1667 when she is recorded as "Cathren the wife of John BUSHROD yunyer" [i.e. the younger] tragically she probably died of the plague as there was great mortality that year. When records for All Saints parish commence in December 1653 we have three children which appear to relate to the family:-
     (4.1.1) Mary Bushrod luckily recorded as 'Mary the daughter of John Bushrod the younger' was born on 26th Sep 1656 and baptised at All Saints Church on 10th Nov 1656
     (4.1.2) Elizabeth Bushrod born and baptised at All Saints Parish on 27th Nov 1658 recorded as the daughter of John Bushrod. probably buried All Saints 4th Dec 1671
     (4.1.3) George Bushrod recorded as the son of John Bushrod he was baptised at All Saints Church during Nov 1662.
     It was traditional to name your first children after the parents so Mary at paragraph (4.1.1) above might well have been the first girl born to the couple, but I think there was an earlier son named John after his father who died as there is a burial record at All Saints Church for John BUSHROD Junior on 24th Nov 1670.
     John Bushrod and Mary may well have had other children as when his brother Samuel died in 1646 he left £200 to his daughter Martha but in the event of her death £20 of the £200 was to go to 'ye children of my brother John Bushrod which shall be living at my decease'. The others may be missing because they appear to have moved to live in All Saints parish (where records only survive from 1653) as Mary recorded as the wife of John Bushrod the Elder was buried at All Saints Church on 5th Feb 1654/5.
     Returning to his career after marriage, John soon became an enthusiastic constable for Dorchester being elected in both 1631 and 1632 and is often referred to in both William Whiteway's diary and 'Fire from Heaven'. He is recorded as a clothier by trade and assistant governor of the Company of Freemen in 1633 and was elected a Capital Burgess on 4 Sep 1639 to replace John Blatchford who had been absent in France for 3 years. He was elected Bailiff of Dorchester in 1640 and took on the Stewardship of the Brewhouse when Benjamin Devenish died in 1643. He was named as one of the executors of the will of John Allambridge, a wealthy clothier of Dorchester when he wrote his will on 31st Oct 1644, which he proved the following year. He was elected Mayor of Dorchester twice in 1644 and 1655, and MP for Dorchester in 1659. From the quarter session records it appears that he lived in a house just west of Dorchester goal.
     John re-married to Sarah ATKINS nee CORNISH. Her first marriage had been to a Gentleman Peter ATKINS of Tiverton in Devon whom she married on 18th Feb 1635 at Uffculme in Devon (1.15). Peter's long and complicated Will survives dated 5th May 1657 and this is referred to in Sarah's will dated 13 Feb 1669 wherein she is referred to as 'Sarah now wife of John BUSHROD the elder of Dorchester in the County of Dorset Clothier and formerly the widow relict and executrix of Peter Atkin's of Tiverton in the county of Devon '. I have not found Sarah's marriage to John or her burial. Her will was proved on 5th Jan 1671 when she left all her estate to her kinsman Mr Nicholas Hitchcock a mercer of Tiverton. There are no bequests to any children. She may therefore have been returned to Devon for burial with her 1st husband.
     John BUSHROD was buried in All Saints church Dorchester 3rd Jan 1683/4 as John Bushrod senior.
     (5) Elizabeth BUSHROD [1614-1618] Baptised 17 Sep 1614 Holy Trinity Church in Dorchester & buried there 9 Aug 1618
     (6) Samuel BUSHROD [1616-1646] Baptised 9 Oct 1616 in Holy Trinity Church in Dorchester. He married there on 1st September 1640 to Martha the eldest daughter of another wealthy clothier John ALLAMBRIDGE who had married Euroth WILSON at Holy Trinity Church on 28th Sep 1615. John Allambridge was constable of Dorchester in 1628, Capital Burgess of the town in the early 1630's and was to become Mayor in 1642/3. Samuel's brother John was one of the executors of her father's will and Martha was left £10 when he died in 1645. Her siblings received £150 each, Martha having received her dowry at marriage. Samuel & Martha had 2 children; Mary baptised at Holy Trinity on 20 Nov 1642 and Martha on 9th Nov 1645 before at the young age of 30 Samuel died and was buried at Holy Trinity on 31 July 1646. He was shortly followed by his daughter Martha on 17th October the same year. Link to Will dated 13th April 1646 which has numerous bequests. It was not proved until 1st June 1647.
     (7) Deborah BUSHROD [1618-1619] Baptised 20 July 1618 at Holy Trinity and buried there 5 Nov 1619
     (8) Elizabeth BUSHROD [1620-?] Baptised 24 Sep 1620 at Holy Trinity Dorchester
     (9) Dorothy BUSHROD [1622-?]- Baptised 22 Dec 1622 Holy Trinity Dorchester
     (10) Mary BUSHROD [1624-1627] Baptised 27 Feb 1624/5 Holy Trinity Dorchester and buried there 7 April 1627
     (11) Richard BUSHROD [1626-1667] Baptised 25 Jun 1626 Holy Trinity Dorchester. He was a beneficiary under the Will of his elder brother Samuel in 1646 and elected Bailiff of Dorchester in 1649 before he followed his older brother Thomas and emigrated to New England. He married there to an Apphia Hughes and was later buried in Bushfield Westmourland Virginia in 1667 between 1605 and 1626 at Holy Trinity Church, Dorchester, Dorsetshire, England.2 He was MP for Dorchester - 1614 - 1624 and 1626 between 1614 and 1626 at Dorchester, Dorsetshire, England.2 He was Bailiff of Dorchester in 1617 at Dorchester, Dorsetshire, England.2 He was Bailiff of Dorchester in 1624 at Dorchester, Dorsetshire, England.2 He was Made Capital Burgess - 1623/4 in 1623/24 at Dorchester, Dorsetshire, England.2

     "This will at least gives a clue to the English ancestry of the Virginia Bushrods and very probably is that of a brother of the emigrants. These emigrants were two brothers Thomas and Richard. Thomas came first to Mass. and afterwards to Virginia. He was long a prominent man in York County and was Burgess for the county 1658 60. His frequent clashes with the parish clergy' and the direction in his will that there should be no "common prayer" at his burial would indicate that he was a Puritan. The numerous legacies made by Samuel Bushrod to ministers would indicate that he was of the same faith. Thomas Bushrod married twice but left no children. His will was probated in York Co. in 1677. Richard Bushrod, his brother, lived in Gloucester County, and according to a[ deposition was born in 1626. He married Apphia-, and was ancestor of the Virginia family of the name. See Wm. & Mary Quarterly, XIV, 177.
George Scovel, born "infra the Isle of Purbeek, Dorset" about 1601, was a merchant in Virginia 1640.

Thomas was admitted as a Freeman of Dorchester on 7 Jan 1629/30 by which time he is described as a merchant. Whiteway's diary also states against their marriage that 'he went bankrupt within a year and a half'.They nevertheless had a son John Bushrod baptised at Holy Trinity on the 9th September 1632. He is referred to in William Whiteway's diary as being born on 31 Aug 1632 but he died on 1 April 1633 and was buried at Holy Trinity Church the next day. There may have been complications with the birth because his wife Wilmot died on 21 April 1633 and was buried 2 days later. Thomas emigrated to New England arriving about 1635 and was a beneficiary under his brother Samuel's will in 1647. He married again to a Mary Piersey in York Virginia about 1656 and later to Elizabeth Nowell in 1661. He died there 24 April 1677."

     "This will at least gives a clue to the English ancestry of the Virginia Bushrods and very probably is that of a brother of the emigrants. These emigrants were two brothers Thomas and Richard. Thomas came first to Mass. and afterwards to Virginia. He was long a prominent man in York County and was Burgess for the county 1658 60. His frequent clashes with the parish clergy' and the direction in his will that there should be no "common prayer" at his burial would indicate that he was a Puritan. The numerous legacies made by Samuel Bushrod to ministers would indicate that he was of the same faith. Thomas Bushrod married twice but left no children. His will was probated in York Co. in 1677. Richard Bushrod, his brother, lived in Gloucester County, and according to a deposition was born in 1626. He married Apphia-, and was ancestor of the Virginia family of the name. See Wm. & Mary Quarterly, XIV, 177.
George Scovel, born "infra the Isle of Purbeek, Dorset" about 1601, was a merchant in Virginia 1640."1

     "This will at least gives a clue to the English ancestry of the Virginia Bushrods and very probably is that of a brother of the emigrants. These emigrants were two brothers Thomas and Richard. Thomas came first to Mass. and afterwards to Virginia. He was long a prominent man in York County and was Burgess for the county 1658 60. His frequent clashes with the parish clergy' and the direction in his will that there should be no "common prayer" at his burial would indicate that he was a Puritan. The numerous legacies made by Samuel Bushrod to ministers would indicate that he was of the same faith. Thomas Bushrod married twice but left no children. His will was probated in York Co. in 1677. Richard Bushrod, his brother, lived in Gloucester County, and according to a[ deposition was born in 1626. He married Apphia-, and was ancestor of the Virginia family of the name. See Wm. & Mary Quarterly, XIV, 177.
George Scovel, born "infra the Isle of Purbeek, Dorset" about 1601, was a merchant in Virginia 1640."
