Note: The Original Holbrook Family Record Book is in a very fragile and faded condition, therefore it is transcribed verbatim including noticeable corrections by the writers of the Record Book. There are obvious misspellings and incorrect dates based on later records but are copied as written in this record. Comments by the Transcriber are shown in italics to distinguish them from the original information documented in the Record Book.
Beginning of Transcription:
History is a grand poem, which saves the past from oblivion and teaches lessons for the future. A rare and beautiful tapestry, whose warp is time and wool humanity, all woven to conform with the plan of the Divine artist who holds the shuttle in his hand.
Could we grasp with human wisdom what Divinity conceives, there would be no inconsistencies in that fabric, but one grand harmony of plan and purpose, making a beauty fit for Heaven as we shall see when the finished pattern is unfolded in eternity.
Everyone that lives has his influence. The world can not be the same it would have been without us.
The thread of our lives be it soiled, tangled, knotted and darkened is woven in as surely as though it were spun smooth and shining.
Today we are to search this woven fabric of History to find the beginning character and extent of one unfinished vine called –The Holbrook Family---.
We can not tell just where it commences. We thought it sprang from the Mayflower; a second investigation proves this to be impossible. Our first reliable facts begin in the days Captain Kidd with his pirates were scouring the seas; when people were hanged for witchcraft in New England; and when the Indians were perpetrating their cruel tortures on the defenseless colonists.
In the days of Benjamin Thompson and John Holbrook, the very year that the farmer settled in Rhode Island was the Chickasaw war in the Ohio Valley, a few years after King George’s war with the French.
These were the days of the boyhood of George Washington and his first act of public service.
John Holbrook married Lydia Goldthrait, daughter of John Goldthrait. (Lydia was second wife of John Holbrook; ref. Mayflower Society) Lydia had one sister, Elizabeth, who married Peter Darling and who from his death to her own was hopelessly insane. John Holbrook was guardian of Peter Darling’s daughter Sally and she lived with them. John Holbrook had five children viz: Amariah, Samuel, John, Micah and Rhoda. (Mayflower Society lists five children by his first wife Zilpah/Zilpha Thayer as Amariah, John, Micah, Rhoda, and Catharina. Samuel is not listed.)
At this time John Holbrook was a farmer in Uxbridge, Worcester County, Province of Mass.
In his will he reserves a portion for his daughter and divides the remainder among his sons, giving Micah the largest share on condition that he take care of his mother.
Micah married the daughter of Joseph Thayer by whom he had three children, David, Enos, and Sarah. For his second wife he married Mary Thompson, youngest daughter of Benjamin Thompson. Their children were Benjamin Thompson Holbrook and Rhoda Holbrook.
John Holbrook the first ancestor we have found in our history was a farmer. His son Micah, a man possessed of considerable influence, was a hard-working blacksmith. Both he and his wife were members of the Methodist church in Mendon, Mass.
Benjamin Thompson, father of Mary Thompson, was born about 1700. At the time of his death was a farmer in Smithfield county, Province Colony of Rhode Island. He had five sons; two daughters; John, Roger, Ebenezer, Timothy, who died before his father, Martha and Mary. Timothy died in Richmond, New Hampshire. His widow lived with her sons after his death.
Timothy’s children shared equally with Benjamin Thompson’s children in his will. Benjamin Thompson leaves enough of his words and deeds for us to judge what manner of man he was. His will in its ancient form and original dress is well worth being copied for our study.
A part is here inserted.
“I will give to my beloved daughter Martha, wife of David Belen, the one-seventh part of my estate, not before given away, in the following manner and form and not otherwise. That is to say for her to have the one-seventh part, kept for her for real necessity and to be dealt out to her by my executor as he shall think proper and if my daughter shall outlive her said husband then for her to receive the whole of the remaining portion.
But if my daughter Martha should die before her said husband then my will is that , that part be equally divided among the rest of my heirs, named in this will and that her said husband shall have none of it.
The reason of my giving it to her in this form or manner is that the said David Belen hath behaved himself so contemptuously to me and my daughter Martha that my will is he should have
none of my estate.” Micah Holbrook and Roger Thompson are mentioned as executors of this will and Mary, Micah Holbrook’s wife, is remembered in a very substantial way and spoken of in affectionate terms. We have at the date of 1789 forty several deeds of lands given to Benjamin Thompson when he settled in Rhode Island.
In 1800 Micah Holbrook bought land in Swansey, Chestershire county, New Hampshire, which belonged to his brothers wife Lydia Southwick. He removed to that place with his wife and daughter’s family.
Of the life in Swansey we have a few reminiscences from the pen of Richard Pearse, oldest son of Rhoda Holbrook Pearse, of Moline Co., Ill. He writes; I well remember the time when my father and mother, grandfather and grandmother Holbrook moved from Uxbridge, Worcester Co., Mass to Swansey on the old Ashanile farm, better known as the Red Tavern on the Bennot Farm. The time when uncle Ben brought home aunt Betsy Shirley.
All these things are vivid in my recollection.
In 1810 Benjamin Thompson Holbrook lived in Buffalo, when his father Micah Holbrook died while on a visit to his son.
Rhoda Holbrook Pearse, only daughter of Mary Thompson Holbrook, born Sept. 6, 1782 married Timothy Pearse, M.D., Apr.12, 1797 in Uxbridge, Worcester Co., Mass. She died in Friendship, N.Y. Apr. 4, 1841. She was a member of the Congregational Church.
Dr. Timothy Pearse was the youngest son of Richard and Phebe Pearse. Dr. Pearse and family lived for a time in Sudbury Ver. They moved in April 1812 to Almond, Allegheny, N.Y. and from that place to Friendship, N.Y. in April 1816. Dr. Pearse died at the latter place Feb. 27, 1852.

Benjamin Thompson Holbrook youngest son of Micah Holbrook was born in Smithfield, Rhode Island Aug. 18, 1786. Betsey Shirley daughter of John Shirley was born in Swansey, New Hampshire Feb. 16, 1786. They were married Mar. 17, 1805.
John Shirley was the grandson Gov. Wm. Shirley of Mass. Gov. Shirley was born in Sussex England in 1693; Settled in Boston in 1734; Was Gov. of Mass. From 1741 to 1745; Was Captain-in-Chief of the British forces during the French and Indian War; Was Governor of Bahama Islands; returned to Roxbury, Mass, where he died in 1771. Just here is a family trouble which has been remembered through the generations and which explains the indigence of some of his family.
The story goes that he became enamored of a beautiful French lady and forgetting family, friends, duty and principles fled with her to the Bahama Is., where he was made Gov. for a time. After the death of his wife, he returned with his beautiful young wife to his New England friends where he died. Gov. Shirley’s oldest son Ferrers, father of John Shirley was an officer in the French and Indian War with Washington
under Braddock and fell in Braddock’s defeat at Ft. DuQuesne. He married an English lady and their son John was born on ship-board when they were returning to America. The mother died soon after and Ferrers Shirley fell in battle the same year 1755 as has been related.
John Shirley was entirely ignored by his grandfather Gov. Shirley, and at a suitable age was bound out to a shoemaker in Boston named Frazier. He lived with this family until he entered the army. Toward the close of his term of service Daniel Frazier son of his employer was drafted in the Revolutionary War and John Shirley went in his place.
He served some time in the field; was captured by the British; was sick of yellow fever in the hospital prison. He refused to take the medicine administered, as he saw that every one that tasted it died, and bribed his nurse to cook a rat he had seen killed shortly before and feed him the broth.
He began to recover slowly from this time and when able to be about the house he surprised and pleased all whom he met by his inexhaustible fund of
social attainments. At last he escaped by stratagem. He feigned considerable skill as a pugilist – and several times demonstrated his skill to the great amusement of friends and foes. He finally proposed to the commander-in-charge that he should fight for his liberty against any person they should select. This pleased the garrison and a large burly Negro was selected, who was a terror to all. If he could vanquish him he was told he might return to his regiment.
A day was appointed for the combat and just before the hour arrived one of his newly made friends took him aside and told him the secret of the negro’s success was in crushing his adversary with his head in a certain headlong rush which would dash him backward against the stonewall of the prison and kill him instantly. The combatants took their places. The signal was given. After a few cuffs and blows were exchanged, the Negro quickly backed off and started forward at a tremendous force, with his head down. Shirley was prepared for this and when the Negro was almost upon him, he quickly stepped aside and the Negro was thrown by his own tremendous force
against the ragged stone wall and fell back dead.
John Shirley was given his liberty. He returned to his regiment and served until the close of the war. After he returned from the war, he determined to educate himself. At his father’s death, he had been left in charge of his grandfather with property which belonged to him but the Gov. needing the money fled with and seemed entirely forget this boy to whom it belonged. So now the young man stood alone in the world without money and without friends; ready to begin life for himself.
He first mastered the elements of primary education supporting himself meanwhile by shoemaking. He persevered in this undertaking and became a fine scholar and an excellent musician. He married Submit Bogle about 1780. Their children were Mary, William, Betsey, Henry, Benjamin, Warren, Nancy and Hannah.
Mary married Peter Brigham of Roxbury, Mass.
Hannah married Mr. Matthews of Stoneboro, Mass.
Nancy married Mr. Shore of Boston. They had one daughter named Georgiana who married Mr. Dudley of
Winchendon, Mass. Georgiana Dudley had one daughter Emma. These three older women were left widows when quite young and for some time the four generations lived together. Mrs. Shore died Sept. 25, 1874. Mrs. Dudley some time before. Emma Teubon married Dr. Smith of Xenia, Ohio in 1877; lived there for some time; has since returned to Boston. Benjamin Shirley ran away. Many years after his death, his friends had unmistakable evidence that he after following the sea for some years took up his abode on one of the fertile islands of the Pacific, when he married the daughter of the king, and after the king’s death occupied his throne. Warren the youngest son of John Shirley died on the way to California. Henry Shirley had four children; Mary Submit, John Warren, William Henry, and Betsey Ann.
Mary died in 1876 leaving one child, Mrs. Henry Allen of Manchester, VT. Mrs. Henry Allen died in 1882.
John Warren now lives at Worcester, Mass.
Betsey Ann married J.M. Gregory and resides in Sunderland, VT. They have six children – Addis, William, Ella, Florence, Emma and Mary.
