Dr. Jeremiah Robinson, son of John Robinson and Mehitable Stanyan, was born after 1697.1 He died at Westford, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts, 19 October 1771.2

Dr. Robinson married (1) Lydia Norris, daughter of Jonathan Norris and Lydia Heard, say 1732;3,4,5 he married (2) Eunice Amsden, daughter of Captain Thomas Amsden and Eunice Howe, at Marlborough, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts, 14 October 1746.6,7

There are several deeds that place and identify Jeremiah. The first was dated 12 Jun 1748 from John Robinson of Exeter to Jeremiah Robinson of Marlboro, but it was not recorded until 17 July 1762. Other deeds show he lived in Littleton in 1733, Marlboro in 1747, Haverhill in 1762, and Westford in 1767.

He sold to his brother his right to their father's pew on 17 Jul 1762. That was done by deed and it reads: "Jeremiah Robinson of Westford, Mass Bay, physician, for twenty shillings sold to Daniel Robinson of Exeter, yeoman, his right into a certain pew in the old meeting house, which formerly belonged to our honored father John Robinson of Exeter"

His record as physician while in Westford is curious: in 1767 the town voted "not to pay Dr. Jeremiah Robinson for doctoring the town poor."8
