About John Holbrook

Listed as Captain John Holbrook --------------------

Notes from Janet and Robert Wolfe Genealogy Gateway, 2010/07/06

John likely emmigrated to America before 1625. "It is known that John

Holbrook's fourth child was born there [in Weymouth] in 1627, and there is

every reason to believe he was in Weymouth or at least in New England three

years earlier. ... He was in Dorchester, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1635 and

in 1640 he was made freeman there. In the same year his name appeared in

Rehoboth, Plymouth Colony Records and in Weymouth Town Records under

circumstances that show he was not a newcomer to America. John Holbrook

settled in that part of Weymouth known as "Old Spain". ... Died probably

before 1644. Married Sarah in England. She died in Weymouth November 14,

1643." [Holbrook and Allied Families by A. Roberts Lord, New York: Thesis

publishing Co, 1942, p. 8-9]
