  • Notes 
    • (Research):The article "Benjamin Washburns of Bridgewater" by George Ernest Bowman in Vol. V of Pilgrim Notes and Queries (Jan 1917), states that Benjamin's correct father is Jonathan. Nahum Mitchell's History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater in Plymouth County, Massachusetts is incorrect.
