John BRIGHAM [Parents] 1 was born in 1574 in Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, East Riding of Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. He was christened on 10 Oct 1574 in York, St Martin Coney, Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. He died in 1621 in Hotham, Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. John married Constance WATSON on 30 Sep 1599 in Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom.

JOHN BRIGHAM (Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, Thomas1) born in Holme on Spalding Moor about 1573, resided in his native parish and later in the adjoining parish of Hotham where lie died in 1621. His (eldest) son Henry and three other children (unnamed) were given legacies in the will of his great-uncle Henry3 Brigham of Seaton, dated 30 June, 1606, previously given. (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 30, fol. 165.) On 11 May, 1621, administration on the estate of John Brigham of Hotham, deceased, was granted to his widow Custance Brigham. (Adm. Act Books, P. and E. Court of York, Harthull Deanery.)

He married 30 Sept., 1599, Constance Watson, baptized 17 Aug., 1578, daughter of James Watson, and sister of Isabel Watson the wife of his brother Thomas5 Brigham; she is mentioned in the wills of her father, James Watson, dated 10 July, 1615, her sister Isabel Brigham dated 8 June, 1634, and her brother-in-law Robert5 Brigham, dated 5 Sept., 1640. (P. and E. York Wills, vol. 34, fol. 95, vol. 42, fol. 281, and original will for 1640.)

On account of the loss of the registers of Holme on Spalding Moor between 1601 and 1628, the baptismal record of only Henry6, the eldest child of John5 and Constance (Watson) Brigham, is now preserved; but the will of Robert5 Brigham (brother of John5), in 1640, previously given, names six others, William, John, Robert, Gillian, Margaret, and Phillippa, all "now in this land," thus clearly indicating there were others then out of England, evidently referring to Thomas6 Brigham who accompanied his own-cousin Anne6 (Brigham) Crosby, wife of Simon Crosby, to New England in the ship Susan and Ellen in April 1635, and Sebastian Brigham who emigrated to New England in the autumn of 1638 in the company led by Rev. Ezekiel Rogers of Rowley in Yorkshire, a parish about a dozen miles southeast of Holme on Spalding Moor. The order of births of these ten children is uncertain.
