Excerpt from Jonathan Holman, a Revolutionary Colonel: A Paper Read Before the Worcester Society of Antiquity, December 5th, 1893

The earliest knowledge we have of the ancestor of the subject of this sketch in America, is given in Coffin's History of Old Newbury. The historian says:

"Solomon Holman was one of the early settlers in the west parish of Newbury. He was born in England, served seven years on board a man of war, ran away in Bermuda when sent for milk, secreted himself in the barn till the vessel sailed, and lived by milking the cows. He was discovered by the owner of the barn, who befriended him, and gave him employment. He afterwards married his employer's daughter Mary, came to Newbury, built him a bark, and then a log house on land of which he bought thirteen acres for a fat heifer. The land is now owned by Mr. Jonathan Ilsley, from whom I obtained this account. Mr. Holman died May seventh, 1753, in his eighty-second year."

Like other early settlers of Massachusetts, Solomon Holman, senior, cast about him for land beyond the confines of his home at Newbury, in the unsettled portions of the Old Bay Province. Among those who purchased land in Sutton, or emigrated thither, may be mentioned the Armsbys of Wrentham, Buckmans of Beverly, Bonds and Bullards of Watertown, Burnaps and Daggetts of Reading, Carters of Sudbury, Crossmans of Taunton, Dikes of Ipswich, Dwinnells of Topsfield, Davidsons of Essex, Singletarys of Framingham, Pierces of Woburn, Waters of Salem, Burbanks, Chases and Holmans of Newbury.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Jonathan Holman, a Revolutionary Colonel: A Paper Read Before the Worcester Society of Antiquity, December 5th, 1893 The first wife of Solomon Holman, Jr., was. Mary Brackett, supposed to have been of Newbury, by whom he had two child ren, Solomon and Elizabeth. His second marriage was with Mercy Waters of Sutton, in 1729. Thus early in the history of the town we find the two families connected by the holy ties of matrimony. By the latter marriage he became the father of eight more Children, among whom was Jonathan, the subject of this sketch, born at Sutton in I7 32. From the record we learn that Solomon Holman, Jr., was in 1726 among the protestants against having a council of ministers at Sutton in relation to a difference between pastor and people. In 1742 a petition was presented to the inhabitants of Sutton for a new parish, which was eventually formed and became the second in town. Among the petitioners were Thomas Holman and Solomon Holman, Jr. From this point onward 1n this sketch the junior will be dropped from the name of the above Solomon Holman, as there is no evi dence that Solomon the first ever resided in Sutton. In the documents which follow under date of their respective years, so much of early history, boundaries and names of persons appear that it has been thought best to enter largely upon their publication. They cannot but be of great value to all interested in the early history Of Sutton as originally bounded, or in what later became the North Parish and eventually the town of Mill bury.
