      1756 Ipswich Journal: Mrs. Burchett, widow of the late Hon. John Burchett, Esq; Secretary of the Admiralty, and Daughter of the late Sir John Robinson of Denston Hall in Suffolk.(Isabella?)

      In 1703, with Elwes, he(John Robinson d 1704) successfully petitioned for a pardon for his eldest son, John, Ďa volunteer on board the late Kingís ship Rochesterí who had been convicted of the manslaughter of an innkeeper at Deal.

      Wife
      Son John Robinson (13 yrs in 1796)
      Daughter Harriet Robinson
      James Robinson Heyward, son of Thomas Hayward of Throgmorten Street

      According to the King's Books, made in 1534 by the order of Henry VIII, with a view to obtaining a correct return of ecclesiastical revenues, the clear annual value was £22 8s. 7d. Upon the dissolution of monasteries in 1548, Sir Thomas Smith, Knt., and John Smith, appear to have obtained a grant of the same, and it has since passed with the lordship. In the reign of Queen Elizabeth, it came into the possession of William Burd, who died in 1591. It was purchased of a William Burd, Esq., by Mr. Robinson, who died in 1609. Thence it descended to Lieut. General Robinson, a distinguished soldier, who married Rebecca, eldest daughter of Robert, Lord Clive.
