Marriage

There were two men named Thomas Holbrook. This Thomas Holbrook of Weymouth married only once to Jane Powyers. Note some internet websites show other wives - that is not correct according to the latest research published by NEHGS in 2000 in Kempton Ancestry Park IV.

Note that Experience (Leland) Holbrook Did Not Exist. Savage originally conflated the son of Henry Leland with a fictitious father and the created two fictitious siblings Experience and Lydia Leland. Experience supposedly married Thomas Holbrook. There is no evidence for this and neither Experience or Lydia ever existed. This error was copied to later histories such as History Of Weymouth 2:204 from Savage. Note there was two men named Thomas Holbrook. Thomas Holbrook of Dorchester, Medfield and Sherborn had only two wives: Hannah Shepard and Margaret (Unknown). Thomas Holbrook of Weymouth has only one wife: Jane Powyers.
