of Duxbury, Plymouth
Born: Bef 1622, based on date of birth of Samuel less 18 years.
Residences: Boston in 1640, where Samuel was baptized, and he purchased land from Walter Merry > probably Duxbury later as evidenced by land ownership that son Samuel sued over.
Spouse: Grace, last name unknown. It is uncertain if she came with John to New England, or if she is from another immigrant. She survived John Seabury, and married second: Anthony [Lane?], aft 1662.
Children: 1) John, possibly moved to Barbados, 2) Samuel, bapt December 10, 1640 in Boston, Mass. The History of Duxbury mentions he may have had daughters. If so, they either died or belong in that long list of unknown wives of settlers, as they are unidentified.
Died: Bef 1662, when Samuel "entered his claim to a certain house and parcel of land heretofore belonging to his father, now belonging to his brother John Seaberry of Barbadoes and himself" History of the Town of Duxbury, Justin Winsor, 1849.
Here are extracts of what I have picked up on father John thus far:
|Duxbury History by Winsor, pg 305,
"[Seabury] John, died bef 1662; married Grace, had John, went to Barbadoes;
Samuel, Dec 10, 1640 and some daughters."

"On Nov 25, 1639, the Boston selectmen gave leave for John Seaberry to
buy "our brother Water Merrye's house, and half an acre under it in the
Mylne field". In 1641, "John Seberry" sued Walter Merry for 15 pounds,
saying that the original purchase price for the house, 170 pounds, was

2) Martha Pabodie, granddaughter of Mayflower passengers John Alden
and Priscilla Mullins, April 4, 1677, in Duxbury, Plymouth Co, Mass. Three
children. She remarried William Fobes about 1682 and had at least one more
child with him. William Fobes and Martha moved to Little Compton, Newport
Co, Rhode Island. That may be where the younger Seabury children were raised.
Residences: Apparently moved to Duxbury while young, lived and died there.
Both parents died young:
