Samuel Bushrod left a will on 13 April 1646;

     "VIRGINIA GLEANINGS IN ENGLAND; The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, pp 375
     "SAMUEL BUSHROD in the countie of Dorset, clothier. Will 13 April 1647; proved 1 June 1647.

Also I give unto Mr. Frederick Losse £3, and to Mr. John Forward 40s. To my daughter Martha £200 to be employed for her education and maintenance, and to be paid over to her together with the increase and benefit thereof, at her age of 21 or marriage.

To my brother Thomas Bushrod halfe the summes of money that he oweth me, the other halfe I give to my brother Richard Bushrod, for the recovery whereof the said Richard is to bear the cost and charge, To my brother Marshall's children equally among them, all debts due unto me from Joseph Cole and Nathaniel White, merchants, save only £20 thereof, which I give unto my cousin Mary Whitfield.

All the rest of my goods I give to my wife Martha, whom I make my executrix, and I desire my kinsman John Bushrod clothier, my friend George Cole, marchaunt and my brother Scovile to be overseers of this my will, and to take security of my executrix in behalf of my daughter.

Witnesses: Ri : Scovile, Richard Rapson of Dorcester, clothier, Mary Coke of Dorchester spinster. Proved by the executrix. Fines, 120.
     "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."

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 1599.1 " GAV-11.

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 1599.1 "
In John Bushrod's will dated 17 March 1589/90 at Sherborne, Dorsetshire, England, Margery Feltons was named as executor;

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."

From Dorset Online Parish Clerks:
     "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.

Gent. Peter Atkins1

M, #91313, d. after 5 May 1657
Last Edited4 Aug 2019
     Gent. Peter Atkins married Sarah Cornish on 18 February 1635 at Uffculme, Devonshire, England;
Her 1st husband.1
Gent. Peter Atkins died after 5 May 1657; Date of his will.1
     ;
From Dorset Online Parish Clerks:
     "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.1
Gent. Peter Atkins is mentioned in the will of Sarah Cornish on 13 February 1669/70;
From Dorset Online Parish Clerks:
