Early Settlement of Bridgewater Township1

Land Grant*1656John Willis, Solomon Leonard, Francis West, John Ames, John Howard, Thomas Hayward, Philip Delano, George Soule, Moses Simmons, John Alden, Christopher Wadsworth and James Lindall were among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.

Occupation*1726David was identified as a yeoman in Westborough when he sold land to his stepson in 1726.1
Land Records*14 November 1742 On 14 November 1742, stating he was a yeoman of Marlborough, David Brigham gave land to each of his younger children, excepting Jonas who would receive his gift a few years later, and to a grandson. His son Levi Brigham received land in Marlborough; he gave land to his daughter Deborah Brigham; he gave land that had once belonged to his father to his grandson John Brigham, son of his son John Brigham who had received his gift of land earlier; his son Asa Brigham of Marlborough, husbandman, received 70 acres in Shrewsbury; and to his son Silas Brigham of Marlborough, husbandman, he gave land in Marlborough.1

Will*14 June 1748David wrote his will on 14 June 1748 stating he was a yeoman of Westborough. In it he 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 decease, on the strength of his word, were to be first returned to him. Jonas was also named as his sole Executor and had already promised to provide for his mother during her lifetime. David's will bequeathed to Jonas, in addition to the portion of his farm David 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 David's great-grandfather Edmund Rice, from whom his father Thomas Brigham had purchased a 24 acre town right in 1665 and that David had likely inherited. Also to Jonas, he 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.3,9
