Written and submitted by David Dunbar on 3 Jul 2014:
“Descendant of Gospatrick, the first Earl of Dunbar and Northumberland” Robert Dunbar at Rootsweb.

David Dunbar says, “We know of all of Robert’s children born in the Colonies and that it would have been improbable for him to return to England and serve in parliament. It does give some hints of information for further research. There are literally hundreds of descendants of Robert and dozens who are somewhat active in trying to find his parents. In Scotland you see spellings of Dunbar are varied including Dunbarr and Dumbarr. The history texts often use them interchangeably within the same paragraph. I am pretty certain that Robert is the one on the list of prisoners captured at the battle of Dunbar listed as Lt. Col. Dumbarr with no first name. The general consensus is that he was literate before the battle. Notice that Clan Genealogist in North America, Ann Theopold Chaplin, is mentioned. She authored the book “The Descendants of Robert Dunbar of Hingham Massachusetts” 1992 She also did research in Scotland. Her book completes 10 generations and has 2 pages of the 11th generation, mine.” “His wife, Rose, has an unknown history. We do not know if she came from Scotland with money to buy out Robert’s indenture ship or if she was the daughter of the owner of the Lynn iron works. Regardless, within a couple of years of arriving on the Unity Robert paid taxes higher than all but 2 others in his township. We don’t know who Robert’s parents are nor Rose’s parents. His son Peter b 8 September 1668 is in my line.” ~ Posted with permission of David Dunbar.

[Exiles; Banks; DR; SPOWS; Ch.7] For explanations of the category, abbreviations and references see List of Dunbar prisoners from Lost Lives, New Voices.

2. In The Great Migration Begins, Charles Anderson claimed that the Mary Farr, daughter of George Farr, married first James Mycall, then second Matthias Farnsworth. [1] However, more recent research has pointed out that George Farr’s daughter Mary was having children by Matthias Farnsworth during the same period of time that Mary Farr was having children with James Mycall, then Joseph Niles, in another town, so therefore they could not be the same woman. [2] This more recent article points out that the parents and origins of Mary Farr who m2 James Mycall, then second Joseph Niles, remains unknown.7
