Re: For descendants of Nicholas Holt 1602-1685
This is what I have in my notes:
Nicholas Holt came to Boston, New England on the James from England on 3 June 1635. He was a tanner from Romsey in Hants, England. Savage infers that he was made a freeman in Boston in 1637 and that he was a resident of Boston before moving to Andover; but other sources show he moved to Newbury before going to Andover (Savage 2:455).
Nicholas Holt was of Boston, Newbury and Andover. Hemarried secondly, Hannah Bradstreet who was the widow of Daniel ROFE/ROLFE. He married thirdly, Martha (---), widow of Roger Preston (Torrey, p. 385).
His first wife was Elizabeth Short who died 6 Nov 1656 in Andover, Mass. I have eight children listed.
