Edward Colborne of Ipswich, Massachusetts, 1618-1712, and Five Generations of His Descendants


This fully indexed book traces five generations of the descendants of Edward Colborne, who arrived in New England in 1635 and settled first in Ipswich. Edward Colborne may have been the first settler north of the Merrimac River who owned land and farmed it with the intention of developing it into a permanent settlement. This holding later became part of the town of Dracut, and still later was formed into Chelmsford. This extensive work contains many original documents: birth, death, and marriage certificates, transcripts of wills, Civil War records, maps, and photographs. This book should assist many people who are interested in the Colburn lineage of Carol Rose (Colburn) Bosworth, especially those generations following Justin Colburn of Dracut, Massachusetts. This work is arranged by generation. It includes details of related families, include Richardson, Reed, Awrey, and Bosworth.
