Excerpt from The History of the Brigham Family, Vol. 2

One event of outstanding importance justifies the publica tion of this Second Volume of The History of the Brigham Family - the discovery of the true story of the English origin of the Brigham Family, of which, in the First Volume, all exist ing knowledge began with the arrival in this country of Thomas Brigham, the Puritan, in 1635. Mr. J. Gardner Bartlett, one of the most competent of New England genealogists, had gone to England in 1914 to trace the British ancestry of Simon Crosby, who was a fellow passenger with Thomas Brigham in the Susan and Ellen, and whose wife was Ann Brigham, a double first cousin of Thomas. While engaged in research in the interest of the Crosby family, Mr. Bartlett found the authentic record of the family from which Thomas1 Brigham had descended. Recognizing its importance to the Brigham family in this country, Mr. Bartlett wrote it out into an informative and read able narrative, and kindly tendered it to the officials of the Brigham Family Association, at a price which testified rather to his zeal in the science which he adorns than to any desire for personal profit. Our gratitude for his generosity and our indebted ness for his enterprise and the priceless information he has imparted to us is unbounded.

The highly important Introduction to Mr. Bartlett's Eng lish genealogical data by our own Herbert 0. Brigham, State Librarian of Rhode Island, in Providence, R. I., opens the story of our English origin and lineage with vivid touches of history which enlarge our view of the movements in England which sent our ancestor to America.
