Includes NotesNotes for Francis Willoughby:
He came to New England in 1638 and was Deputy Governor of Mass. Bay Colony, active in the forming of the Party of Resistance when the colonists were divided into two parties. In 1664, the King appointed a commission to visit new England. When Bradstreet urged that the King's perogative gave him power to summon them back to England, Francis Willoughby reminded him that they must consider God's displeasure as well as the King's, their own interests, and that of God's things as well as the King's perogative (Danforth papers - p. 99)

FRANCIS WILLOUGHBY (1639) of Charlestown, Aug. 22, 1638, called by Hutchinson's gentleman from England, was a son of William Willoughby, who was a "colonel of the city" of London. Francis Willoughby (1639) was a native of Kent, and had been for some time a commander of a vessel. He joined the First Church in Charlestown, Oct. 19, 1639, and became a freeman May 13, 1640. He was representative from Charlestown in 1642, 1648, and 1649; was chosen assistant in 1650, 1651, and 1664; was elected deputy governor in 1665, and held that office until his death, April 3, 1671, when Gen. John Leverett (1639) succeeded him.

In 1641, he, with others, invested largely in real estate in Charlestown, and built warehouses and wharves, and "prayed the court" to appoint charges wof warfare, portage and storage. His wharves were on each side of the ferry ways, and his ship yard on the site of Fitchbur Railway depot, or on Warren Avenue, where, in 1641, he was engaged in building a ship.

He went to England in 1651, and remained nearly eleven years. In 1652, he was appointed commissioner of the navy at Portemouth, and in 1658-1659 was a member of the British Parliament.

In 1662, when it was desired by the General Court of Massachusetts Bay to congratulate King Charles upon his restoration, a letter was written to herbert Pelham (1639), Nehemiah Bourne (1638), Francis Willoughby (1639) and others, in London, asking them to supply the commissioners, upon their arrival, with such funds as they might require on account of the colony.

His widow, Margaret, married 2/8/1675, Capt. Laurence Hammond (1666) of Charlestown. Francis Willoughby (1639) left a large estate, for those times, being estimated at over four thousand pounds.

He was ensign of the Artillery Company in 1643. The Artillery Company doubtless joined in the funeral honors which were paid on the 7th of April, to Deputy Gov. Francis Willoughby.

"1671, April, Mr. Francis Willoughby, Deptuy Governor of Massachusetts Colony died. He desired to be buried one foot deep and to have ye top of his grave plain, only covered with the turfs of grass"
--Bradstreet's Journal.

Eleven foot companies were in attendance at this funeral "with the doleful noise of trumpets and drums, in their mourning posture, three volleys of shots discharged, answered with loud roaring of the great guns, ending the heavens with noise at the love of so great a man"
--Noadish Adams
