Robins, John N/A

Robins held the manor of Matson near Gloucester in the 15th century and possibly earlier. In 1590 the heiress Margaret Robins married Jasper Selwyn who then came into possession of the estate. But the family did produce an early American emigrant; and Thomas Robins, a Gloucestershire artist of the mid-18th century, was thought to have been a descendant. This history was recorded with other Robins history in the Rev. Mills Robbins’ 1908 book Gleanings of the Robins or Robbins Family of England.
