     John Bumpas married Frances Bedford. Information received by e-mail indicates that John Bumpas married Frances Bedford. Also, Lynn Allen Bumpass manuscript indicates that John's brother, Diggs, married a Frances Bedford who was the widow of Robert Bedford.

Child of Samuel and an unknown spouse:

Narrative

     He was baptized on 30 April 1676 2nd Church at Scituate, New Plymouth Colony.3

     Samuel left Massachusetts and headed south to Virginia. He was not mentioned in his father's will. It is believed that Samuel settled in the area where Washington, DC now stands. Before 1700 he was established as a tobacco grower. He went to North Carolina with his son Robert but later returned to Virginia. Samuel's date of death is not known but it is said he lived to be a very old man. Family tradition indicates that he was thrown into the Potomac River and drowned by rebellious slaves.

     It is not known which of his three wives were the mother of John and Robert, however it is likely that his first wife surnamed Gabriel may have been as Garbriel shows up as a given name in future generations descended from John and Robert. I am assuming that his third wife was the mother of Diggs but have no definate proof. Also, it is not known whether he had any daughters.

Major Life Events

Children of Edouad and Hannah:

Narrative

     Edouad was also known as Edward Bumpas.

     Edward's wife has tentatively been identified by some researchers as Hannah Annable. Other researchers indicate that his wife could not have been Hannah Annable and they are probably correct.

     The following is based on information found in Lynn A. Bumpus book on the Descendants of Edouad Bompasse.

     Edouad Bompasse arrived at the Plymouth Colony aboard the ship Fortune on November 10, 1621. The Fortune was the second ship to arrive at the Plymouth colony preceded only by the Mayflower. He became known as Edward Bumpas in the Colony. The name has taken on various spellings over the years: Bump, Bumpas, Bumpass, Bumpers, Bumps, and Bumpus.

     The name Bompasse is probably of French origin, possibly Huguenot. The old Norman and French name Bonpas, literally translated Goodstep, is an aristocratic name in Europe. The Bonpas family family originated in Perpignam in the extreme south western portion of France near the Mediterranean. The name probably came to England with the Normans and again with the Huguenots.

     Bumpus also exists as a name derived from Boneboz in Normandy, a Fief held from the Earls of Mellent.

     Tradition states that in January 1240, in the wars of Raymond VII, Count of Toulous, a youth was handed a very important dispatch to convey from one commander to another. To deliver this, it became necessary that he pass through the enemy lines. It was a difficult and delicate errand, demanding not courage alone, but also astuteness and tact. When at length he dashed into camp and laid the dispatch at the feet of his commander, the General clapped his hands and shouted, "Bon pas!" "Bon pas!" (Well done!). His comrades caught up the expression and shouted back, "Bon pas!" "Bon pas!". So, on that day he received a new name, a title of honor conferred for valiant services rendered. The name clung to him until he became known as Bon Pas, and was the father of the family Bon Pas. In France the name is sometimes spelled as pronounced, Bon Par. The name was Anglicised, the two words composing it run into one and it became Bonpas, Bompas, Bumpas, Bumpas, Bompass. In New Enland records of Edward and his family it is written as Bonpas, Bompas, Bompasse, Bumpasse and Bumpas.3

     One source states that Edouad Bompasse was born about 1605, St. Barthoomew Parish, London, England.

     Edouad was probably a member of the Protestants who fled from Holland to Amsterdam. He reportedly was with the Pilgrims in Leyden, Holland and probably went to England with those who returned after the first attempt to sail for America failed. Willison in his Saints and Strangers states that Eduoad Bompasse was a Saint and native Leydener. Leyden was located six to seven miles up the Rhine River and was considered the spiritual capital of Protestant Europe.

     In 1623 he received one share in the land allotment as one of those who came on the Fortune and in 1627 a share in the cattle, indicating that he was unmarried.

     He sold his acre of land on the north side of town in 1628 to Robert Hix and was granted 20 acres of land on Duxbury Bay beyond Eagle Nest Creek south of what is now known as Blue Fish River. Here he settled and build a house and palisado. In March 1634/35 he sold this property John Washburne and was allowed to "take up land in another place." In March 1644/45 when the boundaries of Marshfield were laid, his property was included. He is included in the 1643 list of men of Marshfield able to bear arms. Sometime before Sept. 1645 he sold his property to Solomon Lenner.

     Edward was one of the original proprietors of Middleboro where his son Joseph settled. He also was a purchaser of Dartmouth lands. On 15 July 1653 Edmond Chandler of Duxbury exchanged his rights in lands in Satuckquett for Edward Bumas's lands and rights in Cushenett and Coaksett.

     He was on the jury in 1654 and 1655 and in 1657 took the oath of fidelity as one of the town of Duxbury.

     After 1656 he seems to have lost control of his properties and, through lack of cooperation in the family, he and his wife, Hannah, were to some extend dependent upon the community for their well being. He was given the loan of a cow and in 1663 there was a contribution for his relief when eight townsmen contributed 12.5 bushels of corn. Thereafter, various townsmen bequeathed him grantities of corn or wheat in their wills.

     Although he and his sons, as "first borne in the colony" were eligible for grants they did not take advantage of their positions. There appears to have been a lack of cooperation in the family as their mother was placed in the Winter and Hewitt families to be taken care of. In the next generation several branches of the family prospered and left good estates. The earliest deeds between the sons Edward, John, and Joseph, which were later confirmed by their father, have a peculiar wording, and is seems strange that he did not provide in these deeds that he and his wife should be maintained for life.
