Jacob and Edward Robinson of New England
I didn't find them on my extensive Robinson collection, so they may not be a part of Reverend John Robinson's family tree.
I did read sometime back that "Robinson" was the 16th most popular surname in the USA.
After a few minutes of search on amazon.com in family trees of the Bradley family, I found a Jacob Robinson married to Experience Rogers whose son was also Jacob Robinson born 15 May 1672 in New Haven, CT who married in 1690 to Sarah Hitchcock and then he died in 1747 in New Haven. I found several Robinson trees with Exerience listed as the spouse.
As for Edward, I did find a tree with an Edward Robinson b: 1670 listing Elizabeth Justis as the spouse. They married on 18 October 1720. Reference: Swedish Colonial Society. It didn't say if Edward was in Providence, RI.
