(2) at Marshfield Mary Stable. (This surname is given on the authority of Israel H. Hatch of Marshfield, Mass. Most writers on this family state that in the marriage record the surname of the wife has been obliterated. In Register, vol. 6, p. 348, the record from the town books of Marshfield appears, in abbreviated form, as "WALTER HATCH and ___ __stable m. 5 Aug. 1674.") He settled in the part of Scituate called "The Two Miles," which was joined to Marshfield in 1788; and the house which he bilt there is still standing and is the residence of Israel H. Hatch, his descendant. A will of WALTER HATCH, dated 3 Mar. 1681/2 and signed 4 Mar. 1681/2, was never proved; for after this will was made his son Anitpas became of unsound mind, and his father made a new will, providing for the maintenance of Antipas but leaving to his brothers the land formerly intended for him. This second will was proved. Children by first wife, b. at Scituate: 1. Hannah, b. 3 Mar. 1651/2. 2. Samuel, b. 22 Dec. 1653. 3. Jane, b. 7 Mar. 1655/6. 4. Antipas, b. 26 Oct. 1658. 5.

(The Holbrook Line).

ELIZABETH HOLBROOK. wife of WALTER HATCH (see Hatch), was of English descent, perhaps birth. Her father, Thomas Holbrook, born in Brantry, England, came to America in 1635, with his wife Jane and four children, two more being born in America. He settled in Weymouth, Massachusetts, where he became a man of wealth and prominence. He was one of the original grantees of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, but for not removing to his lands there they were forfeited in 1645. He owned lands in Scituate. Massachusetts, where his sons, Captain William and Thomas (2) removed in 1660. Captain William purchased land in Conihassett and made permanent settlement. Thomas, however, only remained until after his marriage in Scituate to Deborah Daman, then shortly after returned to Weymouth. Thomas was selectman of Weymouth, 1645-46-51-54. He was elected representative to the general court, 1649, and was one of the committee to lay out the highway between' Weymouth and Dorchester. Thomas and Jane Holbrook had three sons and three daughters, as named in his will, which was probated April 24, 1677. although made December 31, 1668, with codicil, five years later. His -wife Jane survived him. The will recites : "To wife Jane all my estate during her life," (requesting sons John. William and Thomas to be helpful to her) "as she is ancient and weak of body." His property was afterward to be divided between the three sons and "my three daughters. Ann Reynolds, ELIZABETH HATCH and Jane Drake." ELIZABETH married WALTER HATCH, who was of the second generation in America, and progenitor of Albert Gallatin Hatch, of the eighth generation.


-------------------- She is identified asthe daughter of Samuel Holbrook in Genealogy of the Buck Family": by Richards, but there is no documentation to support this. Torrey is confusing as he says John Buck m1 Susan --?-- "not Elizabeth Holbrook" and that he m2 Susan/?Sarah (Faunce) Doten/Doty. Buck in his "Isaac Buck of Scituate" suggests she might have been Elizabeth Granger, dau. of Thomas & Grace, but Anderson in "The Mayflower Descendant", Vol. 42, disproves that allegation. Davis in "Mass. and Maine Families" says Elizabeth, dau. of Samuel Holbrook, m1 13 Dec 1666, John Sprague, and m2 John Buck. But ehere soesn't seem to be anything to clearly identify this Elizabeth swo we will leave her last name blank.
