This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


Richard Holbrook, the son of John Holbrook ca 1595 – ca 1644 and his wife Sarah, was born in Glastonberry, Somerset ca 1617 and emigrated with his parents and brothers William and Daniel in 1626. He was first in Dorchester, MA where he was made a freeman in 1648. He was one of the first settlers of Huntington, Long Island and in Milford, CT 1658 where he died in 1670.
