  • Note:

    John Abarough is the most obscure of the Members who are known to have sat for Salisbury in the early 16th century. He probably came from a county family, as ?Master John Abarowe of Salisbury? heads the witnesses to the will of Dorothy Barow of North Charford, Hampshire, and Downton, Wiltshire, which was proved on 17 Feb. 1532. Dorothy Barow?s relationship to this witness is not stated, nor is the name of her husband who, if also called John, could have been the corn commissioner of 1528. The John Abarowe junior who was a commissioner for woods in Hampshire and Wiltshire in 1533 was presumably her son of that name who appears in the will and who in 1537 was described as a resident of North Charford; and the Richard Barowgh of Downton, gentleman, who died in 1552, was probably another son. Another possible connexion of the Member?s was with a family of North Barrow, Somerset. A Henry Abarough of that parish died on 6 July 1507, leaving a son John who, being aged 28 in 1524, could not have been the Member but was presumably the John Abarough, gentleman, who died on 28 Sept. 1538.
