Robert MANSFIELD 1 was born in 1586 in England, United Kingdom. He died 2, 3 on 16 Dec 1666 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts, United States. Robert married 4, 5 Elizabeth 6 in 1610 in England, United Kingdom.

The following is quoted from Mansfield Genealogy by Daland and Mansfield:

RORERT MANSFIELD was born in England about 1594 (1797 Mr. and Mrs. Warner) and died at Lynn, Mass., 16 Dec, 1666 (Lynn V,R.) and married ELIZABETH in England.

Robert, with his wife Elizabeth. their son Joseph and daughter Elizabeth came from England to Lynn, Massachusetts about 1640. Their sons Andrew and John had preceded them in Lynn, as shown by two recorded depositions made by Andrew. At a court held in Ipswich 26 March 1661 Andrew Mansfield, aged about 38 years, made affidavit that he had been an inhabitant of Lynn "aboute two or three and twentyc yeares." (Lewis and Newhall, History of Lynn, 1865 ed., p, 17E). On 30 Nov. 1062, before the court at lpswich, in the case of Brown vs. Laughton, Andrew stated (Quarterly Courts of Essex Co., Vol. VIII' pp. 25e-257)that "about 43 years since (1639), he and his brother John bought of Mr. Manton, so called, a little house and house-lot and planting lot belonging to it in Lynn, and that the next summer their father, Robert. came into the country and they surrendered it up to him." It seems probable that Andrew and John came to Boston as early as 1636.

Where the Robert Mansfield family came from in England is not clear. They are said to have come from Exeter, Devonshire (Ms. Genealogy # 166, The Mansfield Family, in the Lynn Historical Society library.- Lewis and Newhall, p.187; Dr. Joseph Mansfield genealogy Ms, and manuscript of Charles F. Mansfield and Charles E. Lord, The Ancestors and Descendants of Lt. Tobias Lord, 1913, p. 191). Other Sources say that they probably came from Norfolk County. Moulton says "investigations In England by C, H, Townsend Esq. of New Haven tend to show they came from Norfolk County whence came many of the early settlers of Lynn" also in manuscripts by Helen Mansfield, and Helen Lawton and Chandler's History of New Ipswich, N.H. It has not been possible to find any documentary evidence for either Exeter or Norfolk County.

Robert's wife. Elizabeth, was born in 1566 (Warner) and died at Lynn. 8 Sept 1673 (Lynn V.R.). Her will (Probate Records of Essex County. II. 382-383) was dated 30 April 1667 was proved in Salem Court, 26 Nov. 1673, and was attested by her son Joseph. Elizabeth's maiden name is not known. By some authors it is called Townsend (History of New Ipswich, N.H. and Old Foxcroft, Maine). The Townsend family came to Lynn at the same time as the Mansfields. Thomas Townsend (1591-1677)owned land next to that of the Mansfields in Lynn. He had a sister Elizabeth.
