     He Taken from "Old Kittery and Her Families" by Everett S. Stackpole

At a court held in Boston, 28 July 1641, the following record was made. "Gowen Wilson appearing here & his sureties discharged." He is mentioned there again in 1643. The Norfolk County records say that Gowen Wilson had a son that was born and died in Exeter, in Nov 1647. He was appointed cowherd at Exeter 1 May 1649. See Bell's Hist. of Exeter, pp. 49,50. His name appears on the town records of Exeter 24 Nov. 1650. He was probably related to the Thomas Wilson who signed the Combination of Exeter in 1640 and had a daughter Deborah, who married John Warren 21 Oct., 1650.

Without a doubt it is the same Gowen Wilson who signed the submission of Kittery to Massachusetts in 1652. He had a grant of 24 acres at Goose Cove 19 Jan. 1658, and of adjoining land in 1673, making 45 acres. Was selectman in 1674 and 1675. Name of wife unknown. A deposition, made 24 April 1654, gives his age as 36. He was born therefore, in 1618. He died between 1884-1886.

Child
     James Thompson was born in 1666 at Dover, Strafford, New Hampshire, United States.1,3 He married Elizabeth/Eunice Frye, daughter of Adrian Frye and Sarah White, on 3 March 1700/1 at Dover, Strafford, New Hampshire, United States.4,5,6 James Thompson died between 1713 and 1714 at York, York, Maine, United States.7,5
     He Taken from "Thompson Family In Maine" by Rev. Charles N. Sinnett

James was born in 1666, according to the clear statement in his father's deed that he was 11 years old in 1677. As is noted in the statement of his brother John, "he was lame and impotent." But it seems clear that he grew from this early weakness into a manhood of the sturdiest type. The bond which his brother gave to provide for him was carried out in the same faithful and loving manner in which many Thompsons in the long years since then have fulfilled such pledges to their kin and neighbors.

James Thompson was a tailor by trade. Land was granted him in Kittery, Maine in 1694 and 1696. for the records state that James Thompson, on Feb. 1, 1709/10, late of Kittery, but now of York, sold these lands. It is said that land was granted to him in York, Me. in 1701, and that he removed thither prior to 1719. The York, Me. records have the following, "York, Oct 23, 1717, laid out and bounded to James Thompson a tract of land whereon he now liveth, being on both sides of the highways that leads towards Barwick from York Bridge, which said James Thompson purchased of his brother Alexander Thompson for forty acres. Jan. 4, 1713/14." He removed with his family to New Meadows, Brunswick, Me., in 1727.

In 1727, James Thompson moved his family to New Meadows, Brunswick, Me. James Thompson was married in Dover, N.H. by Rev. John Pike, March 3, 1700/01, to Elizabeth Frye, daughter of Adrian Frye, one of the early, sturdy settlers at Frye's Point, Kittery, Me. She was evidently a woman of great strength and ability.

A List of the children of James Thompson furnished by Miss Sarah A. Thompson of Topsham, Me., with this note: "I send this copy of the records from the family Bible of my grandfather, Ezekiel Thompson. It differs, in the
number of children of his father, Capt. James Thompson, from all other records found of that family, but you can verify it from the list of the names of these children in the own handwriting of Captain James, which you have already copied." Help with this list was also furnished from the records which were gathered, March 5, 1838, by Gen. Jedediah Herrick from the town clerk of York, Me., and from Mr. Joseph Thompson, who was the only one of the Thompson name living at York in 1838.

The place was called "Frye's Point" in a deed in 1713. In 1692 he deed land to son William for maintenance the rest of their lives. William was made administrator of his mother's estate Nov. 22, 1709. Adrian had probably died some time before.

Greetings Debbie, (received 3-30-98)

I am a descendant of William Philbrick/brook.  While in New Hampshire, I
copied the following from a genealogical book:

"(Children of William & Mary Philbrick) Walter, blacksm., b. 10 Nov. 1690 (he
and sis. Mary bp. at Slisbury).  In 1700 his fa. deeded him 'land that I have
of my fa. Walter Neal'  Lists 337, 338abd."

I believe this refers to William's son Walter, named as "Walter Neal", giving
good reason to believe that Walter Philbrook (Gen.#4) was named after his
grandfather, Walter Neal.

I have a photocopy of the book, but unfortunately not the name.  I copied this
in my early days of research and didn't write down the source.  I believe it
came from a book on New Hampshire families/pioneers.

What is your source for Mary Neal's birthdate?

Let me know and good luck.

Sincerely,

Robert W. Philbrook

     He Taken from HISTORY WEARE, NEW HAMPSHIRE, PG 302

Thomas Philbrick, with his wife and six children, emigrated from Lincolnshire, England, in company with Governor Winthrop, Sir Richard Saltonstall and others. They arrived in Massachusetts Bay, June 12, 1630, after the timpestuous passage of seventy-six days. They attempted a settlement where is now Salem, Mass., but in July, with Sir Richard and others, they went ot a place now called Watertown, where he remained until 1645, when, with his family, he moved to Hampton, N.H. Thomas Philbrick died in 1667, aged near a hundred years.


THOMAS PHILBRICK, THE EMIGRANT, 1583-1667

Thomas Philbrick*, or Philbrook, is supposed to have come from England in 1630, or not much later, and settled in Watertown, Mass. He is 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 doubt that he and his family were settled in Watertown in 1636. Bond says "His 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, N. 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 scythe."

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, when he made his will, he calls himself "very aged." He d. in 1667.
_______________________________________________________________________________________
NOTE.

There has been a difference of opinion respecting the year that Thomas1 removed from England to America. An old record in a family Bible of Capt. Jonth.5, grandson of William3, says, "He came fr. England in one of the transports [for settlers] in 1633." The descendants of this branch of the family seem confident that this record is correct.

But on the other hand, Jonathan3 of Hampton, who was ten years old when his grandfather, Thomas1 the emigrant died there, says that his father, Thomas Philbrick, Jr., was b. in England in the year 1624, and was six years old when he was brought over the ocean to the American shore. Abner of the 5th generation, b. 1708, who lived with his great uncle Jonathan 20 years, and was heir to half of his estate, was a teacher well educated for the times. He made a record of these statements which that branch of the family receive with confidence. Thomas2, who crossed the sea, at six years of age, died only eight years before the birth of Abner, and most of his eight children were then living, and some of them probably had records of their father's birth and of his age when he came to our shores, so that Abner could easily ascertain the facts, before putting them in writing.

Again, if Thomas Philbrick was a shipmaster, he may have crossed the ocean many times, and the removal of the eight members of his family may have been some at one time and others at another time. We know he was at Watertown in 1636, and Bond may be correct in the supposition that "he was of that company that came over in 1630"; and that most of his seven children were born in England, and some of them may have been of age when they left England.

THE FYLBRIGGE / PHILBRICK FAMILY

by Judy B. Anderson



The Philbrick family of Hampton, New Hampshire, traces its origins to Bures, Suffolk Co., England, where it is noted that Thomas, son of Thomas Filbrigg, was baptized 13 September 1584. We know this is the same individual who appears in Hampton, as his wife and children re-appear in New England.

A record researched and compiled by Theodore V. Dickerson, called "My Family Lines", established the ancestry of Thomas.

Those who have done research during the sixteenth century may find yeoman families bearing the name of a prominent knightly family. In all probability, they are descended from a younger son of the family, but it is almost impossible to trace the generations. It is also possible that an individual was a free tenant of Felbrigge and took that as a surname when they moved on.

However, it is generally accepted that there was only one family of the Felbrigg name, which started with Roger Bigod, who came to England with William the Conqueror, and married Adeliza, daughter of Hugh Grentdesmesnils. The history of this family through five generations is well documented.1

The first ancestor Mr. Dickerson ties to the Bures family is Nycholas Fyllebrigge, who died 21 Feb 1563 at Bures.2 The only known child was:

1) *William Fylbrigge. Born prior to 1540. William was living in Bures parish between 1540 and 1550. On February 23 or 26, 1559, he married a woman with the given name of Cyslie. William died in 1579 at Bures, Suffolk, England.3

Known children were:

1) *Thomas Fylbrigge. Bapt. 1545-50, Bures, Suffolk, England. Md. circa 1574 to Elizabeth. He died after 1621. She died in 1619 and is buried at Bures.4

2) Robert Fylbrigge. Bapt. 15 Feb. 1561. Bures, Suffolk, England.

Because of the descrepancy in dates, it would appear that the ancestry of Thomas Felbrigge cannot be stated with any degree of certainty.

THOMAS FELBRIGGE OR PHILBRICK

Thomas Filbrick (Thos), baptized 13 Sept. 1584 at Bures; died at Hampton, New Hampshire in 1667. He married, while living at Bures, Elizabeth Knopp or Knapp, daughter of William Knopp, 4 June 1615.8 She was baptized 8 July 1593.9

On 12 Oct. 1631, Thomas "Filbrig junior" appears in the Manor Court Rolls of Bures. Apparently he and some others have converted some of their tenements into cottages and have been brought before the court. It is determined that no one within the manor be allowed to convert tenements to cottages as a result of the action.10 This action may have precipitated his move to America.

It is said he came to New England in 1630 aboard the ship Arbella (but he couldn't be both in England and in New England unless, as a shipmaster,he traveled back and forth several times before he settled in). It was one of seventeen ships which brought colonists in that year. Traveling with this company was Gov. Winthrop and Richard Saltonstall. They set sail from Yarmouth, England on 8 Apr. 1630 and arrived at Salem, Massachusetts on June 14. Many who came in 1630 settled at Charlestown, but some, including the Philbricks, moved with Saltonstall to Watertown. Thomas was noted as a proprietor at Watertown, Massachusetts in 1636.11

In 1639 his son, John, removed to Hampton, followed not long after by his son, Thomas. Hampton was known for its abundance of fish, fowl and clams, and the salt marshes provided fodder for livestock. Thomas decided to sell his property in Watertown, and about 1646/47 joined his sons in Hampton.12

Elizabeth died 9 February 1664.13 Her death probably prompted Thomas to see to a will for himself, as his will was written 12 Mar. 1663/64 and was proved in court 8 Oct. 1667, indicating that he probably died in that year.

Their children, all born in Bures, Suffolk County, England were:

1) John Philbrick, baptized 1 Oct. 1616; drowned 20 Oct. 1657. Married Ann Palmer in 1646. He, his wife, and a daughter, Sarah, were lost at sea when they left on a vessel sailing from Hampton to Boston.14

2) James Philbrick, baptized 2 Dec. 1619; drowned 16 Nov. 1674, in the Hampton River, near the mouth of Cole's Creek.15 Md. (1st) Jane Roberts, daughter of Thomas Roberts of Dover, abt. 1644, Strattford, NH. Md. (2nd) Ann Roberts, daughter of Thomas Roberts of Dover. After James' death, Ann married William Marston.16

3) *Elizabeth Philbrick, baptized 31 Oct. 1621/22; died 11 Feb. 1677, Hampton, Norfolk, NH.17 Married (1st) *Thomas Chase of Hampton abt. 1642. Thomas and Elizabeth settled opposite the Philbrick homestead. They remained there until the death of Thomas.18 Md. (2nd) John Garland of Hampton, 26 Oct. 1654.19 Md. (3rd) Henry Robie of Hampton, 19 Jan. 1674.20 His first wife, Ruth Moore, died 5 May 1673.21 After the death of Elizabeth, he married Sarah ?, who died 23 Jan. 1703. He died 22 Apr. 1688.22

4) Mary Philbrick, baptized June 1622. D. 28 Oct. 1702, Hampton, NH.23 Md. (1st) Edward Tuck, son of Robert and Joanna Tuck of Hampton, about 1648. He died 6 April 1652.24 Md. (2nd) James Wall of Exeter and Hampton. He died 3 Oct. 1659.25

5) Thomas Philbrick, baptized 7 Mar. 1623/24 Bures, England; died 24 Nov. 1700, Hampton, NH.26 Md. (1st) Ann Knapp, daughter of William Knapp and probably his first wife, Margaret Dean, about 1647, probably in Hampton. She died 17 May 1667.27 Md. (2nd) Hannah French, widow of John White of Haverhill, Massachusetts, and daughter of Edward French of Salisbury,28 22 Jul 1669.29

6) Hannah Philbrick, born about 1726. Md. Stephen Sanborn, son of William Sanborn and Mary Moulton, 26 July 1633, Hampton, NH.30 He was born 4 Sept. 1671; died 21 June 1750.31

7) Margaret Philbrick, baptized 30 Nov. 1628. Died young.

8) Martha Philbrick, baptized 4 Sept. 1631. Md. (1st) John Cass of Hampton, 7 Apr. 1657, Hampton, NH. John died 7 Apr. 1675.32 Md. (2nd) William Lyon Sr., of Roxbury and Rowley, Mass., 30 Nov. 1676.33 Md. (3rd) John Brackett, 21 Nov. 1698, Hampton, NH.34

Thomas1, the emigrant, was said to have been a shipmaster in the old country. His children settled near the ocean and not a few of them were drowned in it, passing by water into the future state. A natural affection for the sea, appeared among his descendants for generations. The young men took to the water as young ducks take to the stream, and seemed never more happy than in their "Home on the rolling wave." In the course of time numbers of them bought farms, and retired to quiet homes, but they often chose their homes near to some body of water. Others were unable to quit the sea till age or infirmity
compelled them.

I find many in the later generations who have been mariners and masters of vessels. The title "Captain" prefixed in this volume to many a name indicates more frequently a sea captain.

Though this family in early days furnished a large number of earnest, intelligent, Christian men, it is remarkable that no more of them acquired a liberal education. I find few of their names upon our college catalogues, or among the lists of professional men. More of them probably entered the ministry than engaged in the practice of law or medicine. They were usually prosperous in business, had the confidence of their fellow citizens, and their full share in town and county offices; but they did not often enlist in the strife for high official stations. I find few merchants in the older families. They disliked trade and chose to live a more quiet, retired life where they could enjoy their love of independence, and communion with nature. Many of them became skillful mechanics. I was surprised to find so many who were blacksmiths, gunsmiths, &c., some of whom were very ingenious and able workmen, whose skill in working metals they could not bequeathe to their heirs. Thomas Philbrook was also known as Philbrick. Thomas Philbrook was also known as Flybrigg.
