Chronology of the Hitchborn Family, 1673-1891
Had a question from a Hichborn descendant, which prompted me to search out this little nugget purchased some time ago on eBay. It was prepared in 1891 by Naval Constructor Philip Hichborn, U.S.N. and it appears that he typed it, with carbon copies. Mine looks to have been constructed out of one of the carbon copies, but it's possible it's an original.
It starts with Thomas Hichborn, with no date or place of birth. His son Thomas, with Ruth, was born in Boston in 1673. That Thomas, with Frances, had a son
also named Thomas, born in Boston in 1708. That Thomas, with wife Isannah, then had son Robert, born in Boston in 1740. This goes on for quite a few more generations. The author goes into detail about a few people. He finished the book with a biography of Paul Revere.
If you have any questions on your Hichborn ancestors, please contact me, and I will check to see if they are in this book.
Thanks for stopping by!
