ChartsAncestors of Harriet Hanson Robinson
Jonathan Robinson, son of John Robinson and Elizabeth Pemberton, was born at Haverhill, Essex Co., Massachusetts, 16 May 1645.1,2 He died at Exeter, Rockingham Co., New Hampshire, March 1716.2

Jonathan married Sarah (…), whose ancestry is unknown (or not traced here), in 1670.3,4

Jonathan appears as a resident of Exeter in several deeds:

On 24 Jun 1667 he witnessed (by mark) his parents deed of land to Samuel Leavitt. In 1674 he bought land from Jonathan Thwing. Finally, in a deed dated 6 Mar 1719/11 that acts like a will, he deeds his property to his wife (unnamed) and children Joseph, John, David, James, Jonathan, Easter (Hester) , and Elizabeth, as well as to Lidia, daughter of his son John. There are no further records of him after this deed.

He was one of the first elected tithing men in 1672. He took the Oath of Allegiance 30 Nov 1677, and in 1678 he was made "tythingmaster." In 1698 he was one of the reorganizers of the church and "one of the twenty-six subscribers to the convenant and confession of faith."

In 1680 he was named in a lawsuit over land. 26-29 October 1696 he helped to furnish the garrison and in 1710 he was one of a scouting party in pursuit of Indians.2
