Re: John Osborn b 1595 Gedfordshire, England; d Hartford Co, CT
Hi- Most online Osborn genealogies show 1595 John's date of death as 27 Oct 1686. That is in fact the date of death for his son John, b.1627, who married 19 May 1643/5 Ann Oldage,b.15 Jan 1626/7, d. 28 Aug 1689.They also had a son John. My line goes: 1627 John>1660 Samuel>1684 Samuel>1705 Samuel Jr>1736 Daniel>1788 Elijah>1793 Daniel>1823 Edward>1850 Lester>1881 Harry>1914 Raymond >1940 Charles.
Our family records start "When John Osborn came to America in 1644". Because of the chronology, it seems certain that would be 1627 John, not 1595 John. Also, Susan, who died 21 May 1660 is buried in Cransfield,lending credence to the posit that 1595 John remained in England. My daughter will be in England soon, and if she has time, she will visit the cemetery there.
Many lineages confuse John Osborn,b.1621 in Wales with this family. That John married a Mary Knight,their family was in Lynn, MA,for generations and I think distantly related, if at all.
