PremiumPlus family site
My name is Shanda Brown
and my father Robert Alan Dornburg started this site in 2010. Since my father passed away on October 24, 2012, this is a task that I have taken on because geneology was always a interest that my father and I shared and cared very deeply about. Now I dedicate this site to my father Robert Alan Dornburg's memory and it is my gift of love to maintain and add to it whenever I can.|

|A site member commented on the photo John Lothrops (12th Grandfather) Bible Printed by Robert Barker, London England, in 1605 : |
he Lothrop Bible A Bishop’s Bible Printed by Robert Barker, London England, in 1605
The Lothrop Bible was brought to America aboard the “Griffin” in 1634 by the Reverend John Lothrop, who became one of Barnstable’s first ministers and a famous preacher.
During the voyage, while at evening devotions, the Reverend Lothrop spilled hot candle wax on the open book which burned through several pages, causing holes about the size of a shilling.
Before landing, he carefully repaired most of the damaged paper and filled in the missing text from memory. A few of the holes in the pages remain.
The Bible was passed to the Reverend Lothrop’s son Samuel, who took it to Norwich, Connecticut about 1664.
After a series of owners, all of whom were Lothrop descendents, the Bible became the property of Grace Lothrop Luling of Roehampton, England, who presented it to the Sturgis Library in September 1957.
It is fitting that the Bible has come to rest in the very room in which the Reverend Lothrop conducted his religious meetings and in the house which was built for him circa 1644. In Sturgis Library since 1957.
