> John Washburn who married Francis Cooke's daughter

Neither of the John Washburns who were immigrants in Bridgewater married a daughter of Francis Cooke. The father married Margery Moore and the son married 1st Elizabeth Mitchell and 2nd Elizabeth (___) Packard, widow of Samuel Packard. Elizabeth Mitchell was the granddaughter of Francis Cooke, not his daughter. She was the daughter of Experience Mitchell and his first wife, Jane Cooke, daughter of Francis and Hester (Mahieu) Cooke.

John Washburn, the father, did not come on the Mayflower [see any edition of Bradford's "Of Plimoth Plantation"] . The first record of him in New England is from 02-Jan-1632/33 [PCR 1:6], which would suggest an arrival in 1632 - there is no passenger record of his immigration. His wife Margery, with sons John and Philip, came on the Elizabeth & Ann in 1635 [Hotten 57].

It is not known when William, brother of the elder John, came to New England. The last record of him in Bengeworth is from 1637, and the first record of him in Stratford CT is in 1647 [TAG 36:62].
