The variety of spellings of this

BRECK family name, as they occur in the
various old records, include :
Breck (the most used way). Brick (used by a
few living descendants only), l'.recke, Bruck.
Brucke. Breche and Bricke ( obsolete so far as
the present generations of the family are con-
cerned). Two branches of the family were
established in America, the Dorchester branch,
of which Edward Breck wa^ the founder, in
1635-36, and the Sherborn branch, of which
Thomas Breck was the founder, about 1650,
and his son Thomas, the only one of his sons
found in America, removed from Dorchester,
the place of his original settlement, with his
father about 1650, to Sherborn on the banks of
the Charles river in 1658, and is thus the pro-
genitor of the Sherborn branch.

Both Edward and Thomas Breck and their
brothers. John of Medfield. Massachusetts,
Henry, of Dorchester, Samuel and Robert,
who came to Dorchester and soon returned to
England, came from the county of Lancashire,
England, and the neighborhood of Rainforth
and Ashton in that county, but their father's
christian name or the name of their mother
has not been obtained. Living as they did in
one of the most populous counties of England
and one in which the Puritan spirit of free-
dom of religious worship had taken strong
hold, these Puritan sons, desiring to better the
prospects of themselves and their children,
saw in New England such advantages of
growth and prosperity as not even the rich
soil and great manufacturing advantages of
Lancashire could offer, and they joined the
increasing numbers making new homes in the
New World.

Edward Breck, the Puritan ancestor of the
Dorchester branch of the Breck family in
America, was probably the eldest of the six
immigrant brothers, who made Dorchester
their first dwelling place in New England.
With him came his brothers, Robert and
Samuel, aged twenty-eight and twenty-five
years respectively. They did not remain in
New England, but returned home, probably at
the request of their mother, younger brothers
and sisters in Lancashire, they being her young-
est adult sons.

Henry, born about 1605, immigrant to Dor-
chester, Massachusetts Bay Colony, about 1640,
and joined the church in 1641. As nothing



further is known of him, he probably returned
to England in 1642 and possibly with his
younger brothers, Robert and Samuel, ex-
changed places at the English home with
Thomas, born about 1600, and John, born
about 1602, who thus relieved of domestic
cares, came to Dorchester about 1650, Thomas
becoming the progenitor of the Sherborn
branch and John located in Medfield, where he
died, January 3, 1660, probably leaving a son.
I dim Breck, of Medfield, who died August 20,
1690, leaving no descendants so far as known.
( I ) Edward Breck was born probably in
Ashton in Rainforth, Lancashire, England,
about 1595. He married probably about 1617,
but neither the christian or maiden name of
his wife is known. He had two daughters
and one son born in Lancashire before he, with
his wife and two living children, a son and a
daughter, and his two brothers, joined the
company of Puritan immigrants gathered at
Ashton bound for the Massachusetts Bay Col-
ony, to join their brethren already located in
the neighborhood of Salem and Boston. The
company evidently sailed from Bristol, Eng-
land, 011 the ship "James," Captain Taylor,
master, August 7, 1635, and the Brecks settled
at Dorchester and joined the church there in
1636. Edward Breck appears to have been a
man of considerable wealth and he built houses
in Dorchester and acquired considerable land
besides owning much property in Lancashire,
Massachusetts, of which town he was the first
of seven prudential managers. He built one
of the first grist mills in Dorchester. He was
a selectman of the town in 1642, and his
church relationship is apparent by his designa-
tion as "Brother Breck," while in 1645 in nam-
ing a committee to build a new meeting house,
he is recorded as "Edward Breck, one of the
rators," and in 1646, when again elected a
selectman, he is designated "Edward Breck,"
as he is in 1655 and 1656, when again elected
selectman. He also, as an officer of the town,
signed a deed of gift of all rents and profits
from Thompson's Island for the support of a
free school. His first wife died about 1645,
and in 1647 ne married Isabel, widow of John
Rigby. Her maiden name does not appear,
but she was born in England about 16 10, where
she married John Rigby, came with her hus-
band to Dorchester about 1637, were early
members of the church, and their son, Samuel
Rigby, was baptized March 21, 1641, the
church record making his name Rigbee. Mehit-
able Rigby in 1643 married Nathaniel Turner,
of Scituate ; Abigail Rigby, married Thomas.

General Samuel Breck, U. S. A., author of
"Genealogy of the Breck family" says : "There
are now no living representatives of the chil-
dren of Edward Breck, the immigrant, by his
first wife, known to the writer, but all his liv-
ing descendants heard from are also descend-
ants of Isabel, his second wife."

The four children of Edward Breck by his
first wife were: 1. Daughter, born in Eng-
land about 1618, died there when ten years
old. 2. Robert, about 1620, married Margery

garden in Boston ; he married, January 4, 1654,
as his second wife, Sarah, daughter of Captain
Hawkins. He became a merchant of distinc-
tion in Boston and an "admitted inhabitant"
of the town. He died about 1660, leaving
beside his widow, two children, Sarah, who
died young, and Robert (1668-1684), who

married Joanna , and his daughter

Joanna and son Robert survived him, but both
died young, and his widow married Rev. James
Allen, of Boston, September 11, 1673, being

(II) John, son of Edward and Isabel Breck,
was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, 1651 ;

military company of the town, was repeatedly
chosen selectman of the town, carried on a
mill fur making cider from apples, built a
vessel in the town, for which the town fur-
nished trees for masts and yards in 1680; was
reprimanded in 1 68 1 for voting for a person
to be on trial for the "work of the ministry,"
when he was not in full communion, he claim-
ing that having submitted to the government
of the church, he should have liberty to vote in
such a case, but he afterward repented of his
act and gave satisfaction therefor to the church
government. In 1683 he was one of three
commissioners to see to laying out one thous-
and acres of land granted by the general court
for school land in 1695 in lieu of Thompson's
Island. He was elected a selectman in 1686-88.
and in 1690. March 11. he was chosen one of
