Question:  I am looking for my Holbrook family from Brockton, Massachusetts in the 1860's.  Can you refer me to a good history of that community to help me?


Answer:  The city of Brockton was not always known by that name.  Until 1874 Brockton was North Bridgewater, Massachusetts.   Bradford Kingman authored a good genealogy of families and history of the community in a volume at NEHGS.  You will want to refer to:

History of North Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts : from its first settlement to the present time, with family registers. (Boston, 1866) Call # [F74.N812 K56 1866a].
