COLBY
1. MATTHEW-
  b.c.1530m.1. ?2.
MARY ______ 
(will 1 Dec. 1591, bur. 18 Dec. 1591 Sempringham, Lincoln)will 8 Oct. 1591 bur. 10 Oct. 1591 St. Andrew, Sempringham, LincolnshireWhere there is a Thomas "senior" and "junior" this implies that they are children by two different motherswith Matthew's first wife dying some time prior to Thomas "junior's" birth.There are records dating from 7 May 1505 which show a Robert Colby of Pointon who was probably thegrandfather of Matthew who received a grant of "one messuage and 20 acres of land and meadow with allthe appurtenances in the village and the fields of Pointon, which lately was inherited after the decease of William Rogerson his father and Alice his wife". On 12 May John Huchynson and Robert Colby deededthe same property back to Robert Rogerson and his wife Margaret, Katherine, sister of the late WilliamRogerson and a neice. There are also records back to 3 Feb. 1421/2 relating to the land of William Colby of Pointon who was probably the great grandfather of Robert.One has to wonder what sort of horrible epidemic struck this village in 1591 when both parents and their two youngest children died within 3 months of one another.
