***William Holden was born in 1553 in Lindsay, Suffolk County, England.  He married 1st Rose in 1578.  Rose was born in 1555, baptized February 19, 1617/8 in Lindsay, and died February 19, 1618.  He married 2nd Anne, born about 1553 in England.  They married after 1585 in England.  She was buried on January 16, 1623/4 in Lindsay.

****William Holden was born March 26, 1580 in Lindsey, Suffolk County, England.  He married Anne unknown, who was born in 1581 in Lindsey, Suffolk County, England. She died in early 1618.  William died October 8, 1619 at the age of thirty-nine.  To this marriage between 1606 and 1616, five sons were born.
          Adam Holden, born 1605 in Aldham
          Joseph Holden, born about 1609
          Richard Holden was born about 1610 in Lindsey, Suffolk, England.  Little is known of his early life, but at approximately the age of twenty-five, he sailed with his brother Justinian to America on April 30, 1634 on the Francis from Ipswich, with John Cutting, master.

It is alleged that Justinian and Richard came to America due to religious persecution and had in fact been arrested and detained in England for attending dissenters meetings against the established church of England. They were reportedly released with the understanding that they would not attend such a meeting again.

He was noted as a glazier by trade and settled first in Ipswich, MA.  He had considerable land holdings in Ipswich and about a year later, he moved to Watertown where his brother Justinian had settled.  Richard married Martha Fosdick, daughter of Stephen Fosdick and Anne Harre.

Richard and Justinian lived east of Grove Street on Belmont Street in Watertown.  On the 10th of the 3rd month of 1642, a highway was ordered between Justinian Holden’s lot to George Parkhurst’s house, which was Grove Street.  This order was passed in May and in July Watertown records mention the birth of Richard’s son Stephen.  Among Watertown records are three inventories, one of grants and possessions and the other of grants and possessions in 1643.  In 1644 – Record of the grants and possessions of he lands in Watertown that were given to Richard were 1. A homestead of five acres bounded the south with the highway and the north with George Parkhurst Jr., the east with John Stebbin and the west with Justinian Holden. 2. Three acres of upland bounded the North with the highway, the south with the meetinghouse land, and the west with Henry Kembell Jr.

It appears that Richard moved from Watertown to Woburn “having sold his place to J. Sherman in Watertown, MA 1655.”  Records in Woburn list him in 1654, 1657, and 1658 where he is listed as a proprietor of the town of Woburn, MA.  He also appears in court in Woburn in 1661.

He was admitted a freeman in May 1675 and in the same year reportedly moved to Groton in 1662.  According to “The Holden Genealogy” by Eben Putnam, Richard was one of the pioneer settlers of the town of Groton, which was attacked by Indians on March 13, 1675/6, and his home was one of the 46 burned.  He then moved again to Watertown where Justinian was living, but by 184 was again in Groton after a short stay in Woburn and Cambridge.  Until 1666, he was a member of the militia of Groton and was an original member of the Groton church.  Richard returned to live in Groton after the death of his wife on December 6, 1681 in Watertown.

Although Richard became a considerable landowner, he acquired no more than what was necessary to support himself and his family.  With the destruction of Groton and its property and stock, it probably deprived him of personal property.  After the death of his wife, he lived with his son Stephen and all the land was given to Stephen except 33 acres, which went to his sons Samuel.  The Holden lands were in the SW of the now present Groton and near the southern limits of the township, extending to the river.  He had several hundred acres on the northwesterly part of what is now part of Shirley.

Richard died interstate on March 1, 1695/6 in Groton, Middlesex, MA.  His grave was probably marked with an uncarved boulder, according to the custom of the day in remote districts, which has long since become overgrown with turf. Richard and Martha had eleven known children.

Stephen, born July 19, 1642 in Watertown and died January 12, 1657 in Cambridge. *Note: “Wee whom names are subscribed, being summoned by the Constitution of Cambridge to view the boy of Steven Holden lately deceased, we saw that his skull was crushed by a blow…came by the falling of a tree which himself had been helping to fall and as he was going from it the tree fell suddenly and contrary to the expectation of all that were present and gave him his mortal wound on his head.”

Hello,My name is Beverly Barnhart.  I have been researching my family, which through a long line leads back to Ezra and Deborah Bigelow Holden.  Their son Ezra Shattuck married Elizabeth Davis, who is my 3 greats grandmother.  I don't know if you are interested, but I have her birth and death date, as well as Ezra Shattuck's as well as pictures.  Are you interested in these to have posted on your site?  I also have pictures of Elizabeth's parents, Jason and Martha (Phillips) Davis, and Ezra and Elizabeth's children. (They had nine, only four living to adulthood.)  I also have pictures that are unidentified, am curious if you know of anyone who might help me.  They are somehow associated with the Holdens.  I also have pictures of Joseph and Susan (Brown) Holden, who was Ezra Shattuck's brother.

Do you have pictures of Deborah and Ezra or any of their kids, besides Ezra S. and Joseph?  Also do you have any info regarding Ezra and Deborah, besides birth and death info, maybe an obit (may be too soon for that)  Anyway, if there is anything I can do for you,  let me know.
