Robert HERRINGTON II
Joan JENTILMAN
Husband:  Robert HERRINGTON II
Birth:  ca. 1580s
Father:  Robert HERRINGTON I (c1550s-    ), bailiff of Southwold, SFK
Marriage:  7 Mar 1613
Wife:  Joan JENTILMAN
Birth:  ca. 1590s
Baptism (apparently delayed):  5 Jul 1603
Other Spouse:  m2. 25 Jul 1622, Rev. John YOUNGES, immigrant to Long Island, NY
Father:  William JENTILMAN
Mother:  Agnes __?__
Child:
1.  Robert HERRINGTON III, bap. 1 Oct 1616, Southwold, SFK 
Their son is said to be this
Robert HARRINGTON, b. ca. 1616, England
but I have found no proof these are the same man.  Simply having a similar name and being born in England in the same year is not sufficient proof to make the connection.  And please note that Rev. YOUNGES immigrated to Long Island, NY, while this Robert immigrated to Watertown, MA.  Families usually migrate together, and these families did not.

p. 8 ...While we have not seen positive proof that Robert Harrington of Watertown, Massachusetts, is identical with the Robert Herrington who was baptized at Southwold, co. Suffolk, England, it is highly probable that he was...
Lacking proof, one wishes Weis hadn't speculated.
