Elias Parkman,Sr. was the American Progenitor of the Parkman line. He came to America on the Mary & John ship which sailed from Sidmouth, Devonshire, England on May 10th in 1630. He became a FREEMAN on 6th May 1635. Elias was then one of the 48 co-Founders of Windsor, CT in October 1635 (which is the oldest town in CT. His Father was Thomas Parkman. I confirmed this after spending 6 months in England, N. Ireland and Scotland @ the Exeter , Devonshire, England parish/archival library. There exists a genealogy society in Windsor, CT of which I am a lifetime member called “The Descendants of the Founders of Ancient Windsor”. The 48 co-Founders are (additionally their Spouses and Children):

Wapping, Stepney, Middlesex :

The area of reclaimed land known as “Wapping-Whitechapel” (see Whitechapel above)
Chapel of ease built by Honourable East India Company in 1614, became parish church of St John Wapping in 1694.[6]

St Mary Matfelon, known as the “white chapel”, built as a Chapel of ease in the 13th century, on the road to Colchester (now Whitechapel High Street and Whitechapel Road). The area had become a distinct parish by 1329.
Later included reclaimed land between the medieval river wall and the low water mark and known as “Wapping-Whitechapel” to distinguish it from “Wapping-Stepney”. This later became the parish of Wapping in 1694.

The Great Migration Begins
Sketches
ELIAS PARKMAN
ORIGIN: Unknown
MIGRATION: 1633
FIRST RESIDENCE: Dorchester
REMOVES: Windsor 1638, Saybrook by 1646, Boston by 1648
OCCUPATION: Mariner. (About October of 1638 Richard Saltonstall Jr. wrote to John Winthrop about debts owed to Saltonstall and his partners by Elias Parkman, who had been master of a vessel which they owned on several voyages between Massachusetts Bay and the Connecticut River [WP 4:64-65]. On 4 June 1650 Thomas Turner of Hingham discharged Elias Parkman of Boston of all debts and obligations, and stated that the said Elias had made all payments for three-quarters of the bark Supply before Turner had assigned a covenant for the same to Joseph Armitage [Aspinwall 288-89]. On 23 May 1655 the court awarded damages to Elias Parkman from Daniel Gookin who failed to pay him properly for transporting five persons and a large amount of bread to Virginia [MBCR 3:377].)
CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: Admission to Dorchester church prior to 6 May 1635 implied by freemanship. (Parkman maintained membership in this church upon the remove to Windsor, and when he appeared in Boston in 1648 he was said to be of the Windsor church. When he is called “our brother” in the baptism of son Deliverance, this could still refer to membership in Windsor church, and we need not assume that he was admitted to membership in Boston church.)
FREEMAN: 6 May 1635 (last in a sequence of six Dorchester men) [MBCR 1:371].
EDUCATION: He signed his name to deeds.
ESTATE: Granted four acres at Naponset Neck in Dorchester, 5 August 1633 [DTR 2]; received Lot #84, four acres, in the meadow beyond Naponset [DTR 322]; granted Great Lot at Squantum Neck, 18 January 1635/6 [DTR 15]; granted “the marsh before his door,” 27 July 1636 [DTR 17]; granted a share in “ground about Rocky Hill” [DTR 18].
In the Windsor land inventory on 5 February 1640[/1] “Elias Parkeman” had seven parcels: “a homelot with the additions, fifteen acres”; “in the little meadow with swamp adjoining eight acres”; “in the second meadow five acres and half”; “over the Great River in breadth twenty-five rods, in length three miles”; “on the south of the rivulet, sixteen acres”; “in the pallisado half an acre”; and “in the great meadow for a garden plot in breadth four rod, in length six rod” [WiLR 1:71].
On 28 May 1646 “Elias Parkeman of Seabrooke lately inhabitant of Winsor” mortgaged eleven acres of land and a barn, and a parcel of land on the east side of the great river, to William Wadsworth of Hartford [WiLR 1:120].
On 2 August 1652 “Elias Parkeman” mortgaged to “Mr. Robert Peteshall” one house with the land belonging to it, now “in the tenure of Thomas Tyler of Boston” [SLR 1:220]. On 3 August 1652 “Elias Parkman of Boston, mariner & master of the good pinace called the Supplye of Boston” sold to Mr. John Holland of Dorchester “my now dwelling house situated in Boston, together with my home lot, being in measure one acre” [SLR 1:240].
On 7 August 1657 George Palmer of Boston, wine cooper, sold to Elias Parkman of Boston, mariner, a parcel of land in Boston together with the “house, shop & cellar thereon” formerly in the occupation of Hermon Garret, gunsmith, also a garden plot and a way into the garden, and use of the well [SLR 3:388-89]. This plot was given to Deliverance and Nathaniel Parkman after their father’s death by Silvester Eveleth and his wife Bridget, the widow of Elias Parkman, 24 November 1674 [SLR 13:327].
On 20 August 1662 administration on the estate of Elias Parkman was granted at the request of Bridget Parkman, “relict of Ellias Parkeman of Boston, Senior,” and her eldest son, to Thomas Rawlings in behalf of the children and creditors “allowing the widow her thirds in house & lands & the flock bed, rug, to the value of £2” [SPR 4:109].
The inventory of the estate of “Elias Parkman supposed to be deceased” was taken 20 July 1662 and totalled £34 5s., including £19 10s. in real estate: “the dwelling house being very much decayed and ready to fall,” £12; “corner of ground in the orchard,” £7; and “a piece of ground without the house,” £2 10s. [SPR 4:108]. Also in his inventory were “three old swords almost spoiled with rust, 3s.”
BIRTH: By about 1611 based on estimated date of marriage.
DEATH: When his inventory was taken on 20 July 1662, Elias Parkman was “supposed to be deceased,” suggesting that he had not returned from a sea voyage, and had probably died some time before that date.
MARRIAGE: By about 1636 Bridget _____ (she is first seen as his wife at the baptism of son Deliverance in 1651, but there is no evidence for an earlier wife). She married (2) Gloucester 6 September 1672 Sylvester Eveleth as his second wife and died after 5 February 1682 [SLR 12:327; NEHGR 134:301].
CHILDREN:
i ELIAS, b. say 1636 (called Deliverance his brother [ELR 14:112]); m. Salem 13 October 1656 Sarah Trask [NEHGR 55:322], daughter of WILLIAM TRASK.
ii SAMUEL, b. say 1638; a private record says that he went to Virginia [NEHGR 55:322]; no further record.
iii REBECCA, b. say 1640; m. Boston 18 September 1661 John Jarvis (she described as “daughter of Elias Parkman of Boston” [BVR 82]).
iv ABIGAIL, b. say 1642; m. Salem 19 February 1662[/3] John Trask, son of WILLIAM TRASK.
v GEORGE, b. say 1644; d. Windsor 1645 [Grant 80].
vi MARY, bp. Boston 24 September 1648 (“the daughter of Eliah Parkman a member of the Church at Winsor being about 4 days old” [BChR 312]); no further record.
vii DELIVERANCE, b. Boston 3 August 1651, “of Elias and Bridget Parkman” [BVR 33]; bp. Boston 10 August 1651 [BChR 321]; m. (1) Salem 9 December 1673 Sarah Veren; m. (2) after 14 January 1681/2 Mehitable Waite, daughter of John Waite [Wyman 986 (evidence not seen)]; m. (3) Marblehead 3 June 1683 Margaret Gardner; m. (4) after 25 March 1689 Susanna (Clark) Gedney [ELR 16:136, 18:138, 33:275; TAG 39:109-11].
viii NATHANIEL, b. Boston 24 June 1655 [BVR 50]; bp. Boston 8 July 1655 [BChR 328]; m. Boston by 1686 Hannah Hett (eldest known child b. Boston 30 March 1686 [BVR 170]), daughter of Eliphalet Hett [TAG 27:96, citing SLR 20:530-31, 21:43-46].

COMMENTS: A private record of the Parkman family was published in 1901 as a footnote to a genealogy of WILLIAM TRASK [NEHGR 55:322]; it was “furnished by Mrs. Lucy P. Trowbridge of New Haven, Connecticut, from a genealogical statement left by her father, Samuel Breck Parkman of Savannah, Georgia, who was lost, with most of his family, on board the steamer Pulaski in 1838.” This record reflects a number of exact dates that are not to be found anywhere else (including a precise date and place for the birth of Elias Parkman, son of the immigrant), and claims that the immigrant was son of Thomas Parkman of Sidmouth, England.
In 1932 Arthur Winfred Hodgman published an article which claimed that the wife of the immigrant was “Bridget Connaught (or Conner?),” but no evidence is supplied and no credence should be given to this identification without further information; this article also discusses a number of manuscript sources which have useful information on the early generations of the Parkman family (beyond the first generation or two) [NYGBR 63:144-50].
The passenger list of the Recovery of London, sailing from Weymouth for New England on 31 March 1634, includes “Elizabeth Parkman” [NGSQ 71:171]. Although this record need not have anything to do with Elias Parkman and his family, it could conceivably be an error for Elias himself returning from one of his voyages to England.
In his list of those “being gone yet had children born here” Matthew Grant credited “Elias Partman” with having two children born in Windsor [Grant 93]. If one of these was the son George who died in 1645, then the second was probably his next-elder sibling Abigail. Daughter Rebecca may also have been born in Windsor, if Grant’s accounting at a much later date includes only surviving children.
Winthrop, under date of 3 July 1637, reports an incident in which “Rich. Serle, servant to Elias Parkman of Dorchester,” assaulted his master in the presence of Thomas Millet, and was sentenced to be whipped [WJ 2:425].
Richard Saltonstall Jr. wrote an agitated letter to John Winthrop about October 1638 saying that Elias Parkman, master of a vessel that was presently in the Bay, but planning to return to Connecticut shortly, owed him a considerable sum of money and had owed it for some time, but that “we cannot receive a penny of him nor a note of his hand that it is due to us upon demand, unless we be contented to take it at Connecticut when he hath sold his house.” He asked that Winthrop delay him so that he had to answer to the claim [WP 4:64-65].
Two servants of “Elias Parkmore” were whipped at New Haven, 1 July 1640 [NHCR 1:38]. A dispute between some inhabitants of Guilford and “Elias Parkman of Windsor” was noted by the New Haven Colony Court on 7 April 1646, but no further action was taken [NHCR 1:229]. (Savage interprets these records to mean that Parkman “probably had an establishment for trade at New Haven [in] 1640,” but not that he was a resident of New Haven [Savage 3:359].)
Elias Parkman was involved as both plaintiff and defendant in civil suits before the Particular Court of Connecticut in 1648 and 1657 [RPCC 53, 177, 179, 180].
In June 1639 Thomas Moulton of Charlestown, fisherman, aged thirty years, deposed that Margery Batman, servant to Henry Lawrence of Charlestown, fisherman, was removed from Lawrence’s house by her father, “one Batman dwelling by the river of Saco” and since placed “with one Elias Parke since dwelling at Kenecticot” [Lechford 81]. (As there is no record for an Elias Parke in Connecticut, or anywhere in New England, at this early date, this record very likely pertains to Elias Parkman.)

Marriage 29 May 1645 Windsor, Hartford, CTto Susannah Capen
Death[2] 16 Dec 1681 Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut, United States

At Windsor, upon being given the responsibility of keeping the town land records, he discovered that the page containing his grants had been “rent out and lost by the former register” and on 11 January 1659[/60?] he set about relisting his holdings “adding some more expressions then is to be seen in the country book, yet not to vary from the true quality and quantity”: a home lot of six acres “but in time of danger by the Pequet War neighbors desired to join nearer together so as to be capable to make some fortification then he resigned up his home lot for to be divided into small parcels to build upon only reserved a parcel for himself where he had begun building,” leaving him one acre. He also was granted three acres swamp or meadow adjoining to the homelot; five acres in the Great Meadow; on the east side of the Great River twenty-three rods in breadth by three miles in length; twenty-three acres for a woodlot in the Norwest Field; and fifty acres of land.[5].

In his will, dated 9 December 1681 and proved 2 March 1681/2, Mathew Grant of Windsor “being aged and under present weakness” indicated that “my son Sammuell my eldest son is already satisfied with the portion I made over to him in land already recorded”; to “my son Tehan” to be paid by “my son John” £5 and any debts “owing to me” that he collects; to “my son John with whom I have lived some time … all my meadow land in the great meadow, also … my pasture land lying below the hill against Thomas Dible’s home lot and my own, also … my home lot and orchard with the old housing which I built before he came to dwell on it … also my wood lot … in the quarter lots … also all the rest of my estate, excepting my wearing cloths, my son John shall pay to my son Tehan £5 as is already expressed in my will”; to “my daughter Humferryes as a legacy £5 … also I give her all my wearing clothes”; “my son John” sole executor.[6]

4. Thomas Holcomb

Birth: 1609, England

Death: Sep. 7, 1657
Windsor
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA
Born by about 1609, based on estimated age of marriage. Came to Massachusetts Bay in 1633. First settled in Dorchester; moved to Windsor CT in 1635. Died in Windsor CT 7 September 1657.
Thomas married by about 1634, an Elizabeth (assuming she was the mother of all his children), born about 1617. John Winthrop, Jr. attended her at Windsor in 1669, as the wife of second husband James Eno, and called her 52 years old. Previous authors have claimed that Thomas Holcomb married an Elizabeth Ferguson at Dorchester, Mass. on May 14, 1634. Such marriage is not on record and the date is synonymous with the date Thomas Holcomb was admitted a freeman of the Mass. Bay Colony. In 1964 Donald Lines Jacobus noted that “[h]er maiden name has been stated as Ferguson, without proof or probability.”
In 1981 George E. McCracken published “Thomas Holcombe’s Earlier Posterity,” a definitive account of the immigrant and the first few generations of descent from him. In his usual style, he opened the article with an exhaustive discussion of previous writings on this family. The same author has also written two brief articles on the fraudulent claim of royal ancestry for Thomas Holcombe and on the inaccurate tombstone erected in his memory.
Thomas Holcomb(e), of unknown parentage, was b. likely in England about 1609. He arrived at the Massachusetts Bay in 1633 and first settled at Dorchester, Mass. He later moved to Windsor, Conn. in 1635 where he died on Sept. 7, 1657.
Thomas Holcomb died intestate, his estate abstracted by Manwaring from the Hartford Probate District records, Vol. I, Page 130-131, citing probate vol. II, pages 105-6:

His name is on the cenotaph of Founders of Windsor.

…Thomas Holcomb of Windsor. Invt. £294-09-08 taken Oct. 1, 1657 by Benjamin Newbery and Daniel Clark. Children: Joshua age 17 years, Benajah 13, Nathaniel 9, Abigail 19, and Deborah 6-7/12 years of age. Signed, Matthew Grant. Adms. granted to the Widow Elizabeth Holcomb with order of distribution to:

To Benajah,………………33-07-00
To Nathaniel,……………..28-12-00
To Abigail,………………..28-12-00
To Deborah,………………28-12-00
…George and Edward Griswold entered a claim to part of the estate, but remitted the Claim.
…James Enno and Elizabeth Holcomb, widow, were married Aug. 5, 1658. (Windsor Rec.)
…On this 15th day of December, 1660, I doe acknowledge to have received of my Father Enno of my wive’s portion the whole sum. Samuel Bissell.
…On this 17th day of December, 1660, I doe acknowledge to have received of my Father Enno ye full sum of my portion. Witness my Hand: Joshua Holcomb.
…Court Record, Page 109–Dec. 3, 1657: Invt. exhibited.

  1. Rachel Parkman Says:

    This is awesome information! Are all Parkmans related then? If this is the case, then that is awesome!* Long life and prosperity*

  2. Anthony Letterese Says:

    I’m trying to understand how the Parkmans are connected. Are the Parkmans of Boston descended from Elias? I’m descended from Samuel Paul (Pablo) Parkman who founded the Mexican branch of the family. He grew up in Parkman Ohio and it seems that Parkman Ohio was founded by Samuel Parkman of Boston.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
