About Thomas Brook Philbrick, II

Thomas Philbrick was also known as Thomas FELBRIGGE II and as Thomas FYLBRIGG.

"Thomas Philbrick, with his wife and six children, emigrated from Lincolnshire, Eng., in company with Governor Winthrop, Sir Richard Saltonstall and others. They arrived in Massachusetts Bay, June 12, 1630, after a tempestuous voyage of seventy-six days. They attempted a settlement where Salem, Mass, now is, but in July went to Watertown, Mass. Here Thomas Philbrick remained until 1645, when he rem. to Hampton, N. H., his son, John, having previously settled there in 1639."

From the book "Genealogy of Families in Weare."

"Thomas Philbrick, it is said, came from Lincolnshire, Eng. He and his family sailed from Yarmouth, April 8, 1630, and arrived at Salem, Jjune 14. He settled in Charlestown, but soon removed to Watertown, and in 1645-46 moved to Hampton."

From the book "History of the Town of Rye, New Hampshire":

Other sources say he came over on the ship Arbella in the Winthrop Fleet, but no evidence has been found to prove this. Brayton, in his NEHGR article, says that Thomas didn't come across until 1635. He is possibly correct because Thomas' youngest daughter, Martha, was baptized in Sept. 1631 in Bures St. Mary, England. However, it is also possible that Thomas came to America in 1630, leaving his pregnant wife behind, returning later to retrieve her and the new baby.

He was a proprietor in Watertown, MA in 1637 and 1642, but removed to Hampton, New Hampshire, probably in 1646, but possibly 1651, to join his sons.

•Name: Thomas PHILBRICK

•Sex: M

•Birth: BEF 23 SEP 1584 in Bures, Suffolk, England

•Death: BEF 8 OCT 1667 in Hampton, Rockingham, NH

•Burial: Elmwood Cemetery, Seabrook, NH

•Note:

Thomas Philbrick is said to have come Lincolnshire in England. Old records preserved in the family state that he and his family came in 1630 in the Arabella. This vessel was one of seventeen ships which in that year brought colonists to Massachusetts. The Arabella, in which came Gov. Winthrop, Sir Richard Saltonstall and others, sailed from Yarmouth, April 8, 1630, and arrived at Salem June 14. The next month the passengers in this and other vessels settled at Charlestown; but soon after divided, and a part, with Saltonstall, settled in Watertown. Thomas Philbrick and family were there in 1636. "His homestead was on the N. W. corner of Belmont and Lexington Streets."

In 1639, the second summer after the settlement of Hampton, N.H., John, son of Thomas Philbrick, moved to Hampton; and it seems that his brother Thomas soon followed him. It is said that "The first settlers of Hampton were attracted to the place by the fishing, the fowling, the best of clams, and the salt marshes almost ready of the scythe."

In 1645-6, Thomas Philbrick, Sen., a grantee of eight lots, sold his estate in Watertown, and in 1650 or 51 he had removed to Hampton, where his elder sons lived.

February 22, 1649, "Richard Saltonstall owned land in Ipswich joining that of Mr. Rogers' grant of the town," and Thomas Philbrick is named as being there (Antiquarian Papers, No. 37). John Philbrick, of Seabrook, says, "The deed, William Sanborn to Thomas Philbrick, dated May, 1647, proves that the remainder of the family came to Hampton in the spring, 1645-6." His wife Elizabeth died 12th mo. 19th, 1663, and in March, 1664, he calls himself "very aged." He died in 1667.

Jacob Chapman of Exeter, NH, printed by the Exeter Gazette Steam Printing House, 1886, pages 7-19, and copied by Elaine Merrell 1998. Philbrick and Philbrook Families. THOMAS PHILBRICK,* or PHILBROOK is supposed to have come from England in 1630, or not much later, and settled in Watertown, Mass. He said to have been a mariner in early life, and to have been master of a vessel before he emigrated from Lincolnshire in England. There is no dobut that he and his family were settled in Watertown, in 1636. Bond says "It is homestead was on the N.W. corner of Belmont and Lexington Streets. Probably he was of that company that came over in 1630. "History of Watertown, p 909 In 1639, the second summer after the settlement of Hampton, H.H., JOHN (son of Thomas) PHILBRICK moved to Hampton, and his younger brother, Thomas, soon followed him. We are told that "The first settlers of Hampton were attracted to the place by the fishing, the fowling, the best of clams, and the salt marshes, almost ready for the chythe." In 1645-6, Thomas Philbrick, Sen., a grantee of eight lots, sold his estate in Watertown to Isaac Stearns, and in 1650 or '51 he had removed to Hampton, where his elder sons lived. In 1661 he bought of John Moulton, land joining the farms of his son James and his son in law, John Cass. His wife Elizabeth, died, 12 mo. 19, 1663, and in March, 1664, whenhe made his will he calls himself "very aged". He d. in 1667.

Dickerson, pgs. 315-316. Ibid, pg. 311.

Information found on the web at: www.gendex.com -- surname Fylbrigge -- indicates that the progenitor of the Fylbrigge family was Robert. The children were: 1) William, born c. 1530, died 2 July 1579; 2) Nicholas, born c. 1532, died 21 Feb. 1564; 3) Robert, born c. 1533/34, died 28 June 1571; 4) Anne, born c. 1538, and Thomas, born c. 1545/50, died 1632, married Elizabeth. I don't know which is correct.

Dickerson, pg. 311.

If William didn't marry Cyslie until 26 Feb. 1559, and it is estimated that Thomas was born circa 1545/1550, Thomas would either have to be a child from a previous marriage, or the estimated date of birth is incorrect, or the wrong individual has been connected as a father. Mr. Dickerson does feel that there were other children, but only seems to be certain of the two.

Some have a baptismal date of 23 Sept. 1584 rather than the 13th. In this article, September 13th is listed in both the original register and in the Elizabethan copy. However, on page 257, when recounting the baptism of Thomas Felbrigge or Philbrick, September 23rd is given as the baptismal date. I assume, that because of this, some have interpreted the record to mean that Thomas was born on the 13th and baptized on the 23rd. When they moved to America, the name thereafter appears as Knapp.
