Surname Saturday ~ TYBOTT of Gloucester, Massachusetts


Walter Tybott (1584 – 1651), my 10th great grandfather, was from Wales. He was a member of Rev. Richard Blynman’s congregation.  This group of Puritans followed Rev. Blynman to New England about 1640 when he was forced from his church in Chepstow, Monmouthshire for his Puritan preaching.  It is thought that “The Blynman Party” (also known as “The Welsh Party”) was recruited by Gov. John Winslow.  They arrived in Plymouth, settled in Marshfield, and then Gloucester, Massachusetts in 1641.  Some went on to New London, Connecticut ten years later.  Apparently Walter Tybott and his family remained in Gloucester.

The Plymouth Colony records indicate that on 2 March 1640/41 Walter Tibbott, and others were nominated to become Freemen.  He was made Freeman on 19 May 1642. Sometime soon after becoming Freeman Walter Tybott went to Gloucester with others from The Blynman Party.  He was elected Selectman 1642 – 1645.

His will was proved at Salem Court 5 June 165 and it names his children and grandchildren "item i giue to my dafter mari harskol the wif of william hasskole fifteene pound in good pay. I gieu to josef hasskol son of william my farm at chebake. I guie to william hasskolls other sonnes twenti shelenes a pece to put to som good implement.” He also named his grandchild "Richard Dicke," granddaughter Elizabeth Dike, "son clark" [his daughter Agnes’s second husband] and "Sabelone" [Zebulon] Hill, soon-to-be-husband of granddaughter Elizabeth Dike.

Apparently he had only two daughters, Mary and Agnes.  I descend from Mary Tybott (1628 – 1693) who married William Haskell in Salem, Massachusetts in 1643.  They had nine children all born in Gloucester. Mary died on 16 August 1693 in Gloucester, and William died four days later.
