He occurs in the Bures manor court rolls on 12 Oct. 1631, when, as Thomas Filbrig, Jr., he was amerced ¾ as a tenant of the manor for a default.

      (2) Chapman, Jacob, A Genealogy of the Philbrick and Philbrook Families, Exeter, NH: Exeter Gazette Steam Printing House, 1886, pp. 7-10:

      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. . . .

      THOMAS PHILBRICK and his wife ELIZABETH had born in England: . . .

      I. JAMES, in 1644 a mariner of Hampton, who [m. (1) JANE, (dau. of Thomas) ROBERTS of Dover]? He m. (2) ANN ROBERTS, her sister and had 10 ch. He inherited the homestead in Hampton, and was an active and useful citizen. "In 1670, he was chosen with others to run the Exeter line." In 1671, he had a grant of lot 52, 40 acres in the south of Hampton, called "The new plantation" (now Seabrook). He was drowned in the Hampton River, near the mouth of Cole's Creek, 16 Nov. 1674. His widow m. 8 July, 1678, WILLIAM MASTIN. "Feb. 10th, 1692-3 Ann Mastin, alias Philbrook, and James Philbrook [her son] all of Hampton," deeded to "Thomas Philbrook of Hampton, his share, in the estate of his father, James Philbrook deceased." - Signed, Philbrook. . . .

      II. JOHN who m. ANN [PALMER]? by whom he had 7 ch. In 1636 he was a proprietor in Watertown, but in the summer of 1639 he settled in Hampton and received a land grant there. A house lot of five acres was granted to him in 1640. On the 20th, 8th Mo., 1657, he was drowned with his wife and daughter, Sarah, and five others. They were in a little sloop, on a shopping excursion to Boston by the easiest route.

      Hampton records say: "The sad hand of God upon eight persons, going in a vessel by sea, from Hampton to Boston, who were an swallowed up in the Osian, soon after they went out the harbor." Among the names recorded are "John Philbrick and Ann his wife, and Sarah their daughter, - all drowned, 20th, 8th Mo., 1657." . . .

      [Note by compiler: The maiden name of John's wife, Ann, was KNOPP or KNAPP, not PALMER. See Stott, Clifford L., "English Origins of William and Judith (Tue) Knopp of Watertown, Massachusetts," New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 147 (October 1993), pp. 315, 326-327.]
