  • Notes 
    • "It is probably this John who, in 1631, signed his name to the agreement with several other Braintree men to join the settlement at the Isle of Old Providence, which is off the coast of South America. In 1641 the Spaniards drove the English from the two Islands of Providence, and this is probably why John Wilbore and his two brothers were admitted the next year to land called Hollis Grove, which is partly in Braintree and partly in Bocking." [Benjamin Franklin Wilbour, "The English Ancestry of Samuel Wilbore, of Boston, and William Wilbore, of Portsmouth, R.I.", citation details below.]

      "The Providence Island colony was established in 1631 by English Puritans on what is now called Isla de Providencia, about 200 kilometres (120 mi) east of the coast of Nicaragua. Although intended to be a model Puritan colony, it also functioned as a base for privateers operating against Spanish ships and settlements in the region. In 1641, the Spanish overran and destroyed the colony." [Wikipedia]
