b. 25 February 1718
Father*David Brigham1,2 b. 12 Apr 1678, d. 26 Jun 1750
Mother*Mary Leonard1 b. c 1680, d. 1 Dec 1748
Birth*25 February 1718Jonas Brigham was born on 25 February 1718 in Westborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England),3
Baptism1719 and was baptized in 1719 in Marlborough.2
(4th Son) Land Records14 November 1742Jonas would receive a gift of land from his father at a later date than when his father, on 14 November 1742, stating he was a yeoman of Marlborough, gave land to each of his younger children, excepting Jonas. His father also gave a gift of land on that same date to his grandson, John Brigham, son of Jonas's eldest brother John Brigham, who had received his gift of land earlier.1
(Son) Land Records27 May 1743Jonas's father gave Jonas one half of his homestead, including dwellings in Westborough on 27 May 1743.4,5
(Son) FireHis parent's house, with much of its contents, was burned during their old age and, after the fire, Jonas supplied them with much of their needs.6
(Executor) Will14 June 1748Jonas's father wrote his will on 14 June 1748 stating he was a yeoman of Westborough and naming Jonas his sole Executor. The will ratified deeds of farms and land which he had previously given to all of his surviving children, and bequeathed to Mary, his dearly beloved wife, the west lower room in his house, as much room in the west chamber and cellar as she might desire, and the use of all in-door movables which, after her death, those that were properly his, were to be equally divided among his children and his stepson Edward Newton. He clarified his meaning by stating that after the burning of their house their son Jonas had purchased for them many items needed for housekeeping, and after his mother's death, on the strength of his word, were to be first returned to him. Jonas had promised to provide for his mother during her lifetime, and his father's will bequeathed to Jonas, in addition to the portion of his farm his father had previously deeded to him and the items to be divided among all the children, a 14 acre town right, so called, originally belonging in Marlborough and being of the right of Benjamin Rice, a descendant of his 2nd great-grandfather Edmund Rice, from whom his grandfather Thomas Brigham had purchased a 24 acre town right in 1665 and that his father had likely inherited. Jonas was also bequeathed almost all of the cows and horses, tools and various other items needed to manage the house and farm, the remaining half of which, the will implied, would become his after his father's death.6,7

John Brooks Esq.1

(Appraiser) Administration3 October 1787 On 3 October 1787, changes were made in the administration on the estate of the Reverend Ebenezer Turell. The original Executor, Simon Tufts Esq., had died, and Judge Oliver Prescott, Judge of Probate and Wills in Middlesex County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress), appointed his widow, Elizabeth (Hall) Tufts, to succeed her deceased husband as Administrator of Turell's unfinished probate. On the same date, Judge Prescott, who had been appointed to the position following the death of Judge Winthrop in 1779, ordered John Brooks Esq., Ebenezer Hall and Moses Billings to complete another inventory and appraise the estate, according to their best skill and judgment, in lawful money of the Commonwealth.1
