Jared (Garrett, Jarrett) Bourne (Bowrne) (1614-1681) was born in 1614 in Bobbingworth, Essex County, England. He sailed to Boston, Massachusetts in the summer of 1630 with the Winthrop Fleet, a group of eleven ships led by John Winthrop that brought 700 Puritans to New England. Jared is listed in the Winthrop records as Garrett Bourne, and although his ship is not known, it would have been either the Arbella (flagship), Ambrose, William and Francis, Talbot, Hopewell, Jewel, Whale, Charles, Success, Mayflower, or Trial. His older brother Richard Bourne (1610-1682) came to the colonies also, on a later voyage in 1634, and settled about 1635 at Plymouth, Massachusetts. Richard settled soon afterward in Barnstable County, Massachusetts where he married, had several children, and died a Reverand. Jared Bourne's name appears many times in the colonial records of Muddy River, Massachusetts (a part of Boston until the town of Brookline was incorporated in 1705), and Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Some of the highlights from these records are summarized below.
Jared married his first wife Mary Uxor (1614-1644) in 1634 in Boston, Massachusetts. There apparently is some evidence that Mary had a son Jaratt Bourn who was born in 1643, and died that same year.
Jared was admitted to the church in Boston on April 22, 1634, and he took the freeman's oath on May 6, 1635.
Jared became one of the first land owners in Boston when on November 8, 1637 (some sources give Dec. 18) he received 8 acres of land along with 59 others. Recorded deeds show that over the years he bought or received other grants of land as well.
Jared's first wife Mary died, and Jared married his second wife, a woman named Frances (b. 1614), in Roxbury, Massachusetts. Either Mary's death or the marriage to Frances took place on Mar 30, 1644, but is uncertain which event the date pertains to. It is possible that Mary died in childbirth.
Jared is appointed constable on January 12, 1653, and Edward Devotion replaced him in this office on August 9, 1654.
Jared removed from Boston (Muddy River) to Rhode Island on Feb. 13, 1654.
Jared sold land he held at Cambridge in 1664, then sold his lands in Boston in 1665.
Jared is admitted as an inhabitant of Portsmouth, Rhode Island on January 23, 1665.
Jared continued to reside in Portsmouth until after 1667, for on October 30, 1667 he was a deputy in the General Assembly (Legislature) of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.
William Brenton, then (1666-1669) the Governor of Rhode Island, had arrived in Massachusetts in 1630 with Jared in the Winthroup fleet, and he employed Jared at the stone garrison house in Mattapoisett (now Gardner's Neck in Swansea). This garrison during King Philip's War (1675-1676) became known as the BOURN GARRISON HOUSE, for when hostilities began colonists from the surrounding country fled there with their families for refuge under Jared's command, where they were besieged by Indians until relieved by troops sent from Massachusetts. Jared was probably still living in 1681, as among the names of a coroner's jury on August 2, 1681 his son Jarrett Bourne is listed as Jr., presumably to distinguish him from the elder Jarett Bourne. There is no record of his the elder Jared's death, but he is believed to have died about 1683 in Swansea, Somerset County, Massachusetts, and to be buried with no marker in the Bourn Cemetery in Somerset, Massachusetts.
Jared Bourne (1651-1718), the son of Jared Bourne and Frances, was born March 7, 1651 in Brookline ("Muddy River"), Massachusetts; and married Elizabeth Brayton (1681-1718) on Dec. 8, 1681 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. He died Oct. 13, 1718 in Swansea, Massachusetts.

Andrew Bourn (1746-1814), the son of Andrew Bourn and Phebe Bain Richardson, was born Nov. 7, 1746 in Attleboro, Massachusetts; and married his first wife Sarah Cummings (1745-1826) there on April 13, 1769; and his second wife Lucinda Barrows in Attleboro as well on Jan.5, 1799. Andrew served as a sergeant in the American Revolution from Aug 23 to Sept 2, 1778 in Col. John Daggatt's regiment in Rhode Island in Capt. Elisha May's Company. He also served as a sergeant in Col. Isaac Dean's regiment, as a member of Capt. Samuel Robinson's Company on a march during an alarm to Tiverton, Rhode Island on Aug. 4, 1780. He died Sept 3, 1814 in Attleboro
