Thomas Holcombe was of a company of Putitans and Dissenters who assembled in the new hospital at Plymouth, County Devon, England. With the Bishops John Maverick and John Wareham in March 1630, when upon a day of fasting and prayer these bishops were chosen as officers and the Mary and John, a 400 ton ship, was chartered by Captain Squeb for their voyage to the Charles River ( now the port of Boston, Mass. ) in N. America. After a 70 day voyage the ship arrived May 30,1630 at Nantasket, Mass., Which was apparently the deepest penetration of a sea going ship into the harbour. Ten of the men procured a boat and went scouting for the best abode to take up for their new world home. Later these were ordered to return to the ship, as other members of the company had spied out a location at Mattapan on Charles River ( now in Suffolk County, Mass. ) where pasture for their famished cattle, held on the ship, could be had.
Tradition has fixed the place where this company came shore as the south side of Dorchester Neck ( South Boston ) in the Old Harbour. Here they named their settlement Dorchester for the English town and it has ever since retained that name as part of the Greater Boston.
The church records of Colonial New England are relatively complete where found preserved and indicate the intense religious devotion of our Puritan ancestors.
The church at Simsbury, Hartford County, Connecticutt had the same pastor from 1697 to 1710 and a membership of 26 men and 17 women. Among its members, who suscribed its covenant during tat period were: Thomas Barber, Peter Buell, Samuel Case, Thomas Holcombe, Thomas Griffin, John Case, Nathaniel Holcombe, Mascalin, an Indian, Ruth Holcombe, Mary Bissell, Elizabeth Fuller and Hannah Holcombe.
Thomas Holcombe was settled at Dorchester, Mass. in a house which he owned in 1633, which he sold by deed August 12,1635 to Richard Jones signing ¨ Thomas Holcombe ¨ and included four tracts ammounting to 21 acres. On e tract lay on both sides of the Neponset River. In a lottery there December 1,1634 Thomas drew land and was made a Freeman March 14,1634. The form of his oath as Freeman is preserved. He had a grant of land 14½ rods wide near Lamuel Welch in 1635, which he deeded to Josiah Hull about 1636 or the time of his removal to Windsor ¨ Poquenock ¨, Hartford County, Conn.
Town records of Dorchester Mass. show Thomas Holcombe as ¨a first settler¨ there ¨prior to January 1636.¨ He was a farmer. His removal was with ¨60 Puritans and Dissenters¨ who ¨moved in 1635-36 to the junction of the Farmington and Connecticutt Rivers, where they founded Windsor¨. Thomas Holcombe had a grant of land there.
In the spring of 1636 Rev. John Wareham left Dorchester Mass. and came to Windsor Conn. bringing with him his flock of 60 people among whom were Thomas Holcombe, Edward and John Bartlett, Thomas Bascomb, Thomas Bliss, Edward and George Griswold.In the spring of 1639 George Griswold and Edward Bartlett move to Poquenock, 4 miles NW of Windsor where in 1640 they built a frame, brick lined, house on Stoney Brook 1 mile south of Poquenock Center, or the 2nd house from Fort Stoughton. Thomas Holcombe became neighbor to John Bartlett there in 1649, where John kept Rivulet Ferry across Farmington River.
This was north of George Griswold ¨from the brook before his house to the Rivulet¨. On the South of Thomas Holcombe's land was adjoined by Samuel Phelps, who was born in Enga\land in 1625, also joined by Nathaniel Phelps, whose land was bought from his brother Samuel Phelps.
Among other prominent immigrant or pioneer New England families associated with Thomas Holcombe are included John Webster, Governor of Conn., Deacon Samuel Chapin, one of the founders of Sprinfiel Mass.., Honorable William Phelps, one of the Commissioner appointed by Mass. Bay Colony in 1636 to govern Conn., Member of Council in Pequot War of 1637 and in framing the constitution of 1639, Capt. Joseph Wadsworth, who concealed the Charter of Conn. in the ¨Charter Oak.¨, Gen. Nathan Johnson, officer in the war of 1812, State Senator, Quartermaster-General for years and prominent lawyer.
Thomas Holcombe represented Windsor and Hartfoed County on the General Court; served for both at Hartford in the framing of the Constitution of the Colony of Conn. and as Deputy in 164. Died in Windsor (Poquenock), Hartford Coounty, Connecticutt September 7,1657, at age 57 years old. There is a record of payment of church pew rental of Thomas Holcombe for 1659-60, but it was possibly paid by his widow and children.
