    "Edward Robins on 21 August 1635 appeared as age 33 on a list of passengers aboard the ship THOMAS to be transported to Virginia from the port of London. He apparently made more than one trip from England, for on 6 March 1642/43 Elizabeth, wife of Stephen Charlton, stated that Edward Robins, deceased, had been urgent both at Plymouth and at Sea to buy some servants. He did the good will of three to live with him, one being John Coleman.

      2. Joan Robyns will, Archdeaconry Court of Northampton Wills and Administrations 1st Series, E:170, FHL microfilm 0,018,577.

      3. Estimate from ages of children.

      4. Estimates based on both Richard and Joyse having 2 children in 1535 as given in #2.

      5. Estimates based on: William was of age when his father wrote his will in #1, and was executor, so he is placed as the eldest. Thomas made no bequests to his 3 children that were apparently living on their own, probably having already received their shares at the time they left home and/or married (William, Richard and Joys). John, Joan, Henry, Thomas and Edward are placed in the order as named in their father's will, with ages from the assumed ages of Richard and Joys in #4. Those ages are consistent with Henry having a married daughter with 3 children in 1569, another dughter having 2 children, a son with 1 child, and 2 apparently single children, suggesting Thomas was married in the early 1540s. That Edward had only one child when his will was written in 1546 is consistent with his estimated age.

      8. Edward Robyns will, Archdeaconry Court of Northampton Wills and Administrations 1st Series, I:202, FHL microfilm 0,187,579. Several genealogists have incorrectly attributed this Edward to being born ca. 1460, and the father of Thomas rather than his son. That Edward named only one child, a son William who was under age 18, as well as children [unnamed] of his brother Hary [Henry], children of [unnamed] of Richard Robyns, and children [unnamed] of Thomas Hoggs [Hoggies], would show that he was the Edward son of Thomas who left bequests to nieces and nephews.
