John Robinson and the Tuller 1850 Census of Royalton- Possible Ancestors back to 1647 Dorchester, Suffolk, Massachusetts

Nadene Goldfoot                                              
Dorchester is a historic neighborhood comprising over 6 square miles (16 km2) in BostonMassachusettsUnited States. Originally, Dorchester was a separate town, founded by Puritans who emigrated in 1630 from DorchesterDorsetEngland. This dissolved municipality, Boston's largestneighborhood by far,  is often divided by city planners in order to create two planning areas roughly equivalent in size and population to other Boston neighborhoods.

So our Robinson ancestors could have come from Dorset, England.  

"
Dorset is a county in South West England on the English Channel coast. The ceremonial county comprises the non-metropolitan county, which is governed by Dorset County Council, and the unitary authority areas of Poole and Bournemouth."
Working with the elusive John Robinson who lived with Julia Ann Tuller's parents in Royalton, who was 51 on the 1850 census, I have a possible new branch going back to Dorchester, Massachusetts.
                                                                       
Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont
John, I found, must be the John Robinson in Tunbridge, Vermont.  Abiathar and Julia Ann Tuller got married there on February 29, 1852 by the Justice of Peace, Alva Button.  Lots of their family lived in Tunbridge, which was just next door to Royalton,  Windsor, Vermont.  Julia Ann's mother, Asenath,  was a Durkee and there were lots in Tunbridge.

This reminds me of our grandfather, Frank Hugh Robinson b: 1871, who told us that his ancestors came over NOT on the Mayflower of 1620, but the ship after that.  That could have been a ship in the fleet that came in about 1640.  James would have been a good ancestor of that fleet living in Dorchester, Mass.

James and Mary b: 1647  married on September 27, 1664 in Dorchester.
Their grandson, James b: 1704 in Dorchester was a pioneer settler of Chester, Windsor, Vermont where he died.

Census information started in 1790, so anything earlier does not have that type of information.  Even at that, from 1790 to 1850, only the head of the house-most likely the men, were listed with a name.  Others were tally marks in columns.  There was written information that the county or town kept, and often it was very spotty.  That's what people have to depend on.  Then there are tax lists, etc, other things concerning deaths and inheritance.

The information came from my research on  ancestry.com.  I went from other trees who had established parents to keep on following until there were no more.  I also checked out any resources available for each person.

DNA Robinson Match Opens Door to Robinsons in Bakersfield, Franklin, Vermont and Possible Father of Abiathar Smith Robinson

Nadene Goldfoot                                  
I haven't been this excited over my mother's family tree in a long time.  We've had this elusive ggrandfather Abiathar Smith Robinson b: 1829 NY or Vermont who seemed to have no father that we could establish with a paper trail and our Robinson line is a rare R1b Y haplogroup in that the DYS 393 allele is a 12, and not the usual 13, with most all DNA saying our connection was Irish and not English.  Grandpa's oral history, the memory of when he was 16 and had left home in a tizzy, was that his ancestors were from Wales.
                                                                       
Autosomal DNA tests after many years turned up a Sheri whose mother was a Robinson!  Wow!  It was like finding a needle in the haystack!  We had a match which included my brother, myself, my 2 children and my 1st male cousin Ken Robinson.  It consisted of a match on chromosome 1 and a big segment on chromosome 7.  I shared only 66.1cMs total with her on GedMatch.com going back 3.9 generations.  On #7 the segment was 52.2cMs. We all managed to have inherited this similar large segment of #7.   She had tested with Ancestry.  She had a secure tree whose family had come from Bakersfield, Franklin, Vermont.  Our ggrandfather's history was from Royalton and Tunbridge, Vermont.  Oh my!  However, we had no one from Bakersfield!

I had one fact.  Abiathar's wife, Royalton, Vermont born and raised, Julia Ann Tuller, was on the 1850 census in Royalton, Vermont.  Her family had a John Robinson, age 51, living with them as a farmhand.  That's when Abiathar seemed to be in the picture but not listed on their census.  He was nowhere to be found other than marrying Julia in 1852 next door in Tunbridge, Vermont.  Was it just a quirk?  Who can trace a John Robinson without a wife?  Impossible.  I could not trace him at all.
                                                             
Peter Bent Brigham founded Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston
I was not signed up again on Ancestry.com at this point and so decided to search and find what I could about this new town of Bakersfield.  I found a picture of a building there named for Peter Bent Brigham, and so I did a google search of his name, and then decided to search for this important man's genealogy.  "Peter Bent Brigham was born 4 September 1807 in Bakersfield, Vermont as the seventh of nine children born to Uriah Brigham (1757-1820) and Elizabeth (Fay) Brigham (1767-1837). Brigham was a direct descendant of Thomas Brigham (1603-1653), an early immigrant to Cambridge, Massachusetts  as well as John Bent (1596-1672) a founder of Sudbury, Massachusetts.  Brigham had little formal schooling and went to find work in Boston his early teens, when his father died. He began his career working on Middlesex Canal boats, selling fish and oysters in Boston.  He never married."

"Another Uriah on the tree: "In 1797, Uriah Brigham left Marlboro, Massachusetts, drove an ox team with a loaded wagon up the Connecticut River Valley, across the Green Mountains, following the Lamoille River, and north 11 miles to an area known as Knowlton's Gore. In the wagon with their belongings were his wife, Elizabeth Fay Brigham, and their four small children." (I had many Fays but not Elizabeth Fay.)

From this I discovered that Elizabeth Brigham b: 1685 had married Samuel L. Robinson b: 1668 and I had him already on my tree, as I had worked any Robinson I had to death until I could not trace their line anymore and would come to a brick wall.  

It was while on the webpage about Bakersfield and Peter Brigham that searching brought me to the webpage of geni.com where I found this history.  

Samuel L. Robinson had been married to Sarah Manning in 1704  and had had 3 children on my tree and evidently had married Elizabeth Brigham in 1711 and they had no children that I know of.  Sarah could have died or they became Mormons allowing 2 wives, more likely the first idea.  Dorothy was born on April 19, 1709, and I believe was the 3rd child born with Sarah and Samuel Robinson, Captain born before-c1707 and c1709.   Samuel was well known marrying Mary Leonard May 29, 1732 in Southboro, Worchester, Massachusetts.  Yes, all this early history was in Massachusetts.  People kept using the same common first names and with Robinson, 16th most popular name in the USA, it made tracking people most difficult.  I'm one of those terrible people who have relied on other people's trees posted on ancestry, hoping they knew what they were doing.  I'm afraid many of us are guilty of this.  I did use as much as I could find of the resources on ancestry, though, but could not go to original records being I live in Oregon.  I did do that, though, on my close relatives who had lived here from my father's side.
                                                           
Brigham Academy, named for a famous native son, Peter Bent Brigham
Now I had a foot in Bakersfield through Peter Bent Brigham, so I now looked at Sheri's tree and wrote down all the information from ancestry.com.  to add to my sketchy facts.

Sherie could not go back but had found the record that Jacob's father was JOHN ROBINSON.  I had the elusive John Robinson 51 on the Tuller census born in 1799.  Interesting.  Now the need was to search for a proper John Robinson.  My elusive John was born later than Sherie's possible John.  

On my tree, I already had a Leonard Robinson and had a CHILD Robinson listed under his son John S.Robinson  just where the age of Jacob's father-John would fit.  I decided to place him there.  I knew from the census that a tally mark had listed a child of that age and any census before 1850 just listed people with tally marks.  I had not found anyone on hard copy for that slot before.

Bennington was a haven for Robinsons.  I had so many Robinsons from here.  They had moved to Royalton, scene of an Indian attack in early days, and next door Tunbridge, so why not Bakersfield? 

So, according to my edited tree, Abiathar Smith Robinson b: 1829 is now the son of the elusive 
John Robinson b: 1799  on Royalton, Vermont's Tuller census. He was the son of 
Thomas Robinson b: c1775 Vermont  He was son of 
Joseph Robinson b: 1756 Shaftsbury, Bennington, Vermont/ New York son of
Joseph Robinson b: 1734 Hardwick, Worchester, Massachusetts/Vermont  son of
Samuel Robinson, Capt. b: 1705-1707 Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts  son of

Samuel L. Robinson, b: 1668 Newton, Middlesex, Mass/ Bristol, England-married to Sarah Manning with the 3 children and to Elizabeth Brigham. son of

William Robinson b: c1640 Bristol, Glouchester, or Yorkshire,England, who sailed to America and lived in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.

  Several iffy things here.  No paper records on Abiathar's father or Jacob's father, John, and even the John, father of Jacob.  I never would have known, though, that we had a branch going into Bakersfield without finding the DNA and Bakersfield, I know.   I call this an educated guess.  At age 82, I don't have much more time to solve my puzzle of where our Robinsons had come from.  Our grandfather had told us that his ancestors came over not on the Mayflower but a ship after that.  His connection with his family ended when he was 16 and ran away from home due to a spat he had with his father, a very religious man  Frank Hugh, our grandfather, had his favorite horse in Wenona, Illinois in a field and the bull had gotten in it, putting the horse in danger.  It was Sunday-the Sabbath-and Frank intended to rescue his horse but his father Abiathar Smith, wouldn't let him and I guess the results were bad-causing Frank to leave and never return.  He leaves me with lots of questions  One thing I have found; lots of preachers in the Royalton, Vermont area in those days.  

I've switched parents now from my earlier theory I thought was absolute to this one. My software genealogy program, Family Tree Maker, allows me to do this.  One never knows.  We do make errors.

Update: 3/22/17  Oh oh.  I haven't had to switch a father on Abiathar but I have set my software to show that Thomas Robinson is the unknown father and not a natural father.   It didn't take me long.  I've been on ancestry since 6:30am and find that because of not knowing who John Robinson of Tunbridge, Abiathar's presumably the father, I really was wrong about having a Thomas Robinson, b: March 12, 1782 in ?, then of Chester being John's father and d: Dec 24, 1850. Thomas turned out to be a lawyer.  It appears that he never had a son.   I had the family tree connection but it's been so long, I can't remember why.  Not enough resource recorded.  Shame on me!  Now I know why it's so important to document your findings!  Anyway, it turns out that Thomas of Chester was documented well for Chester, but not connected of course, to this new connection to the elusive John of Tunbridge.  Thomas's parents turned out to really be  James Robinson of Chester, a pioneering settler of Chester, Windsor, Vermont.  Chester is a good connection being Royalton is also in Windsor County.  James's wife was Mary Payson.  Thomas's wife was Polly Henry.  Now I'll have to look for other parents for John of Tunbridge.  With John as the father of Abiathar, I have less knowledge about our deep history now than ever.  This is a science.  You start with a premise and try to prove you are right.  You get lots of false leads, and keep on testing it out and trying to find the answer.

Finding Father of Abiathar Smith Robinson-Two Different Hiram Robinsons to Choose From

Nadene Goldfoot,
daughter of Mildred Elizabeth Robinson,
granddaughter of Abiathar Smith Robinson
                                                                     
Abiathar Smith Robinson with his son, Frank Hugh Robinson
and Julia Ann Tuller
Frank was my grandfather.

Somehow, I keep finding a Hiram that is a suitable man to be Abiathar Smith Robinson's father! So far, I have found 2 possibilities; Hiram Robinson of Jamaica, Windham, Vermont who died at age 39, and a Hiram Robinson of Stafford, Orange, Vermont who was very close to Tunbridge, Vermont, neighboring town  of Royalton, Windsor, Vermont, where wife Julia Ann Tuller lived..

I decided to look for THE CORRECT father of Abiathar Smith Robinson, my great grandfather, in cemeteries, so looked next door to Royalton, Vermont's Tunbridge, where Abiathar and Julia Ann Tuller got married.  There had to be a reason for that, and I know that the Durkees had a cemetery there named for them. Julia's mother was a Durkee. I used http://findagrave.com for my searches.

 We use familytreedna for our DNA testing called familyfinder.   I found: that my 1st cousin Robinson has 1525 matches on FTDNA and 140 of them are now marked as coming from his father's genealogy tree.  His father was my mother's brother.  Family tree shows that my cousin's ancestors were 0.1% of the population of England, 0.1% of the population of Scotland and 0.2% of the population of Ireland. Our DYS 393 allele is a 12 and not a 13, so we are rare Robinsons!  And Robinson is the 16th most popular surname, too.  In fact, on my tree which shows several possibities of fathers for Abiathar, I find I have 16 Hiram Robinsons!  It was a very popular name.

Originally, I thought a Hiram Robinson (1809-1839) married to Sally /Sarah Smith were his parents as they were from Jamaica, Windham County, Vermont and Sally had been a Smith.  Sally wound up in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois when she had remarried Thomas Russell in 1841 after Hiram had died.  My grandfather, Frank Hugh Robinson, was born in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois, being Abiathar moved there after returned from Canada after the Civil War, so there is this connection as well as SMITH.
 The distance between Jamaica and Royalton, Vermont is a N and S direction of 82.5 miles.

                       A Look At Another Hiram Robinson

Hiram Robinson (1806-1892) from Strafford, Orange, Vermont , is a man I once  thought  before that he was Abiathar's  father, because Tunbridge, where Abiathar and Julia Ann married, is also in Orange County and Strafford is close to Tunbridge.   Hiram  had been married to Zeruiah Tyler.

 Now Hiram and Zeruiah are biblical names.  Zeruiah /zəˈrjə/ (‎צרויה, sometimes transliterated Tzruya or Zeruya) is a figure in the Hebrew Bible. She was a sister of King David. According to 1 Chronicles 2:13-16 and also the Babylonian Talmud (Shabbat 55), Zeruiah was a daughter of Jesse (sister to Abigail another of Jesse's daughters according to 2 Samuel 17:25). Zeruiah had three sons, AbishaiJoab, and Asahel, all of whom were soldiers in David's army (and also David's nephews). Hiram had been the king of Tyre and was friendly with king David.  Abiathar was the son of Abimelech, chief priest at Nob, took refuge with David who later appointed him high priest.  I thought it fitting for these two young parents to pick a biblical name.

Hiram and Zeruiah are buried in Stafford Cemetery, Orange County, Vermont, which is the same county that Tunbridge is in.  Hiram would have been 23 years old at Abiathar's birth, and Abiathar would have been their 1st child.  Zeruiah would have been 21 years old, perfect ages.  Hiram would have been 46 years old when Abiathar got married in Tunbridge, next door.  Zeruiah would have been 44 years old.

From the US Post Office in Strafford village, go north on Brook Road for about 4-1/2 miles. The cemetery appears to be in the center of a large field. I'll need to get directions.

Strafford Cemetery

This cemetery is on the north end of Strafford village.

This line takes us back to: Descendants of George Robinson
1   George Robinson b: 1626 in Glasgow, Scotland or Yorkshire, England, Rehobeth, MA
.. +Joanna Ingraham b: Bet. 1629 - 1633 in Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts

1. Hiram Robinson's father was:
   2. Daniel Jr b: 1769 in Rushville, New York.  Abiathar did say he was from New York before he ever showed Vermont.  Daniel is a common name found in the bible.  
      3. Daniel Robinson was his father born in 1734 in Massachusetts.  It was Daniel who moved to Strafford, Orange, Vermont.  "11/11/14  Strafford, Orange, Vermont:   The town of Strafford was created on August 12, 1761 by way of a royal charter which King George III of England issued to Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire. The town was named after the Earl of Strafford.  
         4. Ebenezer Robinson was his father born in 1697 in Massachusetts
                  5. Samuel George Robinson was born in 1654 in Massachusetts
       His father was 6. George Robinson born in Glasgow, Scotland or Yorkshire, England, Rehobeth, Massachusetts.

I didn't find any Smith connected to this Hiram Robinson of Strafford, VT.  However, sometimes people did name for someone they admired or knew.  

This is interesting as the Y haplogroup of our Robinsons is R-L21 which is distinctive with a DYS 393 =12 and not the usual 13.  We match many Irish with this.  

I hope my theory of religious first names and being right next door to Royalton, where Julia Ann Tuller was from is correct.  I didn't see anyone suitable to be Abiathar's father buried in this town.  
Abiathar Smith Robinson and Julia Ann Tuller were married on February 29, 1952 11/11/14  in Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont by Justice of the Peace, Alva Button.
Julia's mother was Asenath Durkee, and there was  a Durkee Cemetery in North Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont with 61 interred there.  The Durkees have their own genealogical webpage and send out monthly updates in the form of a newsletter.  They're the line that makes Durkees mayonaise and spices.  

Asenath is also a biblical name.  She was the daughter of Poti- phera, priest of On, wife of Joseph, and mother of Ephraim and Manasseh.  The name is Egyptian and apparently connected with the goddess Neith.

The distance between Strafford, Orange, Vermont to Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont is 7.8 miles.  "The town of Strafford was created on August 12, 1761 by way of a royal charter which King George III of England issued to Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire. The town was named after the Earl of Strafford."  It's 930 feet high, and very cold today at  7 degrees F.  Tunbridge is at a lower elevation of 564 feet but at the same temperature today of 7 degrees F.  "The town of Tunbridge was created on September 3, 1761, by way of a royal charter which King George III of England issued to Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire."

Tunbridge's population:
So when Abiathar and Julia Ann got married in 1852 in Tunbridge, there were almost 2,000 people living here, but the very next year was the population starting to drop off.  People were leaving.   From 1861 to 1865, the Civil War between the North and the South raged.

Tuller-Robinson Connection

My ggrandfather, Abiathar Smith Robinson, married Julia Ann Tuller.  Who were the Tullers?

"
Tuller Name Meaning

German (Tüller): topographic name from Middle High German tülle ‘fence’. Altered spelling of German Duller, a nickname for someone who was patient, from an agent derivative of Middle High German dult ‘patience’; or a habitational name for someone from Dullen in Württemberg; or from an agent derivative of Middle High German tult ‘fair’, ‘festival’ (Bavarian Dult), probably denoting someone who performed or peddled his wares at such events; or (in southern Germany) from a topographic name from Tull ‘elevation’, ‘knoll’. 
 
I have traced our Tullers to Holland:  Below are Tullers.  Tullar is also on our tree.  The story is that a family was angry with other members so changed their spelling to ar.  
Descendants of William Tuller  I'll start with Julia Ann Tuller, but then list others, after this group.

Tuller is also a Jewish surname.  This is a good example I can see by the first names chosen, especially Solomon (Zalman and Feiga which are Yiddish names.)  Sephardic (Spanish)Jews lived in Holland in the 1600's.  They had lived through the Spanish Inquisition of 1492, and scattered, needing to be away from Inquisitioners.  Being Jewish myself, it would be amazing if my mother's grandmother, Julia, had a Jewish heritage.
