The Ancestry of Abraham Lincoln: Concerning Robert Lincoln of Hingham, Richard's father we know little more than his will drawn on the I4th of January 1556 and proven on the 29th of the same month is capable of telling us. That he died a comparatively young man is certain for Richard the eldest of five children then being on lyve as they used so picturesquely to express it was still a minor when that untoward event occurred. Much in consequence devolved upon his mother Margaret Alberye. On her fell the maintenance of the family, the upkeep of the homestead, the oversight and cultivation of the lands until such time as Richard should come of age when he was to have the whole property absolutely. This is doubtless the ancestral estate with part of which he dealt on marrying Elizabeth Rem ching in or about 1574. How much other land if any his father settled upon him before the making of the will or how much upon his younger brother John we have no means of ascertaining but under the will itself Richard got no more while John's beneficiary interest was confined to the modest sum of five pounds. For there were others to be thought of and a dying man however keen his solicitude for those who are destined to survive him can do no more than his circumstances permit. Daughter Katherine must have the tenement in Thetford daughter Agnes that other tenement in Hingham known from of old as Portman's. Then most pathetic eventuality it is possible to conceive another child one who would never behold its father's face had to be provided for. To it if a son must go Pixton's and Pitcher's and Cooper's and Broccle's and divers other lands in Hingham including the one rood land at Stumpe Crosse as from the day of its mother's decease but if a daughter then Richard should again take the whole from the time indicated and pay to this his third sister thirty pounds as her child's portion. Here we quarrel with the records .They pique our curiosity but tell us no more. Nothing more that is to say about the little indeterminate stranger so soon expected in the bereaved household but about the mother herself a fact of much human interest. Left a widow while yet in the very prime of womanhood enjoying a secure life interest in a substantial portion of her late husband's estate it is little cause for wonder that she should have found favour notwithstanding her encumbrances in the eyes of her worthy neighbour Roger Wright. They accordingly made a match of it to all appearances a most happy one. Roger Wright not only regarded his wife's children with affection but left them gratifying tokens of it under his will. Richard was clearly first favourite. To him is devised a close of land and as a special mark of his stepfather's regard he shares the executorship jointly with his mother. This was in February 1571. How long his mother survived her second husband or when she died the records again with tantalising reticence abstain from telling us but the appointment goes to show that Richard her son was then of age a deduction in every way consistent with his marriage to Elizabeth Remching a few years later. On the 18th of April 1540 another Robert Lincoln of Hingham made his will but it unlike those already quoted relates only to his personal estate. No land is demised none mentioned indeed except a single close called Broccles and this we immediately recognise as part of the property afterwards settled by the second Robert of Hingham in the year 1556 upon his child then unborn. The will of 1540 is in fact the will of that Robert's father and it ignores the testator's lands because those lands had already been settled by means of the convenient surrender to uses in the Manor Court in accordance with his wish and intent In framing this his last will he saw no reason to disturb or vary that arrangement. This deduction tallies exactly with the view of the case advanced by Edward Lincoln when in the Chancery suit of 1621 he declares the lands that descended to his father Richard to have been the inheritance of Robert Lincoln father of the said Richard. Under the actual will Robert got only his father's harness His interest in the lands was already secure.
