      Name: Simon Robinson Baptism Date: 19 Nov 1567 Parish: St Benet Gracechurch County: London Borough: City of London Parent(s): John Robinson Merchant Record Type: Christening Register Type: Parish Register

      Chief searcher of the King's Custom according to "Boyds London Inhabitant's."

      ...The nominations of Sir W. Herrick, J. Jolles, John Robinson (Mercer) and B. Norton, and of Sir B. Hickes, Sir W. Bond, Sir W. Stone and Sir W. Herrick had been rejected by the Court on April 21 and April 30 respectively (Rep. 27, ff. 2 b, 7 b). The former of these nominations was held to be void, because Robinson, being Searcher at the Customs, was exempted by Act of Parliament from service as an Alderman.

      Copy Inquisition post mortem of John Robinson of the city of London, 1610, who owned in addition to this property the manors of Monkton Combe and Wedmore; copy wills of John Robinson the younger of Gravesend (Kent), 1659, proved 1660, John Robinson of Gravesend, 1670, proved 1673/4, and Sir John Robinson of Denston Hall (Suffolk), 1704, proved 1704/5; copy settlement previous to marriage of John Robinson and Amee Elwes, 1677;


      The only other substantial estate in Stoke was the parsonage. ... Spryngham and his wife Mary sold the reversion to William Burde in 1565, and he, his wife, and son, transferred it to the Crown in 1579.(fn.129) Thomas Strode received a lease from the Crown in 1582 (fn.130) and in 1591 John Robinson and Lawrence Singleton were given the reversion of Strode's estate. (fn. 131) Strode died in 1595, leaving his tenancy to his widow during her widowhood and then to his eldest son John (d.1621). (fn.132) A Thomas Strode was living in the house about 1633, (fn. 133) and the family still lived in Stoke, probably on the parsonage estate, in 1652. (fn.134)
      By the time of his death in 1610 John Robinson, a London mercer, held both the advowson and the rectorial estate, but only the reversionary interest in the capital house of the parsonage. To his second son John, of Gravesend (Kent), he left the rectory, and to his elder son Robert, a London merchant, the reversion of the house, then held by his wife for life. This interest John bought from his brother in 1612 for 800. (fn. 135) The property passed to John's grandson Sir John, of Denston (Suff.), as part of his marriage settlement in 1677. (fn. 136) Sir John died in 1704, and his trustees sold the site of the college and the rectorial estate in 1712 to Thomas Rodbard, a London fishmonger. (fn. 137)

      ....In 1646 William Robinson, citizen and mercer, owned the Coneyhope Lane property, and probably therefore also 105/33-34. Fletcher occupied this c. 1650, and in 1656, when William Robinson, gentleman, of Stanmore, Middlesex, conveyed his lands by fine to Edward Fenn of Staples Inn, to hold to the use of himself, his heirs and assigns, 33- 34 was described as a messuage or tenement called the Queen's Head in St. Mary Colechurch parish, now or late occupied by Fletcher. Robinson was named as the owner of 34 in a Crown rental of 1664 relating to former chantry properties. (fn.7) ..William Robinson died in 1667 and the property descended to his 5 daughters, Barbara, wife of Thomas Frere, Katherine, wife of Baptist Piggott, Martha, wife of Henry Eve, D.D., Anne, wife of Thomas Woodroffe, and Mary, wife of Richard Michelborne...
