Note: Information on the WYMAN family was given to me by: Stephen Robbins <Sjmrlaw@@aol.com> December 13, 2004 COMMENTS/NOTES: Francis Wyman (Wymant) was born and raised in Barkway. Following his marriage, he moved to his wife�s community, Westmill, some ten miles from Barkway. At least two of his sons (Francis and John) became tanners, perhaps receiving some early training in the nearby town of Buntingford (two miles from Westmill), a noted English center of the tanning and hide industry. His enthusiasm for the Established Church in Westmill appears to have been modest; for 11 consecutive years (1623-1633) he resfused to pay his tithes (the local vicar was required to collect them judicially). Following his death, his eldest son received the Westmill farm (which remained in the family until 1815). Francis Jr and John joined their uncles (Ezekial, Samuel and Thomas Richardson) in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. SOURCES: C. E.
