Lt. Col. John Robinson of Westford1

b. July 4, 1735
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Lt. Col. John Robinson of Westford was born on July 4, 1735 in Topsfield, Massachusetts, son of Jacob and Mary (Gould) Robinson.1
  • John married Huldah Perley, daughter of Capt. Francis Perley and Huldah Putnam, on November 27, 1764, by Rev. Elizur Holyoke of Boxford.1
  • As of 1771, Lt. Col. John Robinson of Westford lived on the farm that, in 1906, was owned by Stephen E. Hutchings, and was one of Westford's selectmen from 1771 to 1774.2
  • In 1775, Lt. Col. John Robinson of Westford was a lieutenant colonel in Prescott's regiment and was one of the officers, if not the officer, that repelled the attack of the British at Concord on that historic morning of 19 Apr 1775. Mrs. Jonathan Prescottf who was, in 1882, living in Westford, was a granddaughter of "Col. Robinson; and although bearing the burden of ninety years, she distinctly remembered him, being twenty years old at the time of his death. She said he was a tall man, of commanding presence, well proportioned, and fearless. She thinks that when the alarm came, on the night of the eighteenth of April, he stood not on the order of his going, but mounted his horse and hurried to Concord, leaving orders to his hired man to follow with provisions. She thinks also, that he was invited to take the command, and says that the tradition in her family always has been that he did assume it, and ordered the troops to fire.3
  • He was buried in West Cemetery, Westford, Massachusetts, and the following is his memorial:

    "Here reposes the body of Col. John Robinson, who expired June 13th, 1805, aged 70 years. In 1775, he distinguished himself by commanding the corps of soldiers who first opposed the menacing attempts of the British troops at Concord Bridge.

    qwcenterwqHere rest thy ashes: on thy silent grave.qwbrwqMay dews distil, and laurels gently wave.qwbrwqLet heralds far proclaim thy soul was firedqwbrwqBy love of freedom, and hy Heaven inspired;qwbrwqFirst in the glorious cause our rights to attain.qwbrwqLast in our hearts shall thy brave deeds remain."qw/centerwq

    Rev. Edwin R. Hodgman of that town further wrote: "For seventy years the dust of Col. Robinson has lain in our soil, with no monument above it, save the simple stone that family affection has reared. Not on the marble, or on any printed page, is there anything to tell how truly the people of this town appreciate the courage and patriotism of the man who stood side by side with those immortal men, whose praise even the mute granite has been taught to speak at Acton and at Concord. Not at the Bridge alone did our brave Spartan show his unflinching valor. In that fiercer conflict on Bunker Hill, two months afterwards, he stood in the front, 'in shape and gesture proudly eminent,' exposed to instant death, yet doing his duty; now leaping upon the parapet, a target for the advancing foe, and now reconnoitering, with the ill-fated McClary, the position of the enemy, to find the best way of repelling his persistent attacks; showing himself everywhere the efficient officer and the strong-hearted man."2
