Family of Samuel Jr VEAZIE and Lucy Phebe HOLBROOK
Samuel Jr VEAZIE b. 1750?544 at prob Hull, MA544. d. 1828544 at Islesboro, ME544.
Lucy Phebe HOLBROOK b. 1750 Dec 4389 at Eastham, MA389. d. 1832388 at Islesboro, ME549.
Married388 1773~. Bangor Hist. Mag.388 has Samuel Veazie and "Phebe" Holbrook married about 1775. Estimated from an estimate of the birth year for daughter Martha, perhaps 1773 is more likely.
No birth record for Samuel Veazie has been found. His birth date is estimated from the birthdates of his other siblings, assuming their order of birth, viz John, Samuel, Deborah and Rebecca, is as mentioned in a probate receipt5523 in the estate of Benjamin Sampson, signed by Samuel Veazie for the children of Deborah (Sampson) Veazie, deceased; and in the will5524 of Rebeccah Samson, wherein she made bequests (in order) to grandson John Veazie, grandson Samuel Veazie, and grandchildren Deborah Veazie and Rebeccah Veazie.
Samuel's birthplace is uncertain. His father was minister in Duxbury, MA, in 1742; may have been preaching in Hull between 1750 and 1753, and was in Hull, MA, in 1753. The 1800 census317 for Islesboro indicates Samuel emigrated from "Nantasket." Nantasket is certainly part of modern-day Hull, but it's not clear whether Nantasket was, perhaps at the time of the cited records, a separate community. Both Bangor Hist. Mag. and Farrow have him born Hull.
Hillman mentions that Rev Samuel Veazie sold the north portion of a lot in Harpswell, ME, in 1785, described as bounded on the southern side by that of Samuel Veazie, Jr.
Samuel likely emigrated with his father to Harpswell, ME, ~1767. Some time before 1800, Samuel moved to Islesboro, as the column in the 1800 census317 for Islesboro, ME, "From where emigrated," lists "Harpswell" for Samuel Veazey. Farrow544 has Samuel emigrated to Iselsboro about 1785, and settled on the north-east side of the island.
The town of "Islesborough," Maine, was incorporated5443 Jan 28, 1789, bearing that name rather then "Winchester," as appeared on the original petition. Islesboro was under the jurisdiction of Hancock County from 1789 until the incorporation of Waldo County in 1827. Hillman800, in a particularly well-sourced description, and Groves5443, provide a more detailed history of the island, town and Samuel Veazie's appearances there.
Farrow544, p 290, says that Samuel Veazie, Jr, arrived in Islesboro about 1785. A map of Islesborough, facing p 93, with the legend "As Originaly Surveyed by Warren," and a list of "First Settlers" of the island, puts Samuel Veazie in lot 35, along with 7 others. The lot is on the north-east side of the island, across a finger of the Penobscot Bay from a neck of land south of Castine. Hillman800 provides a plot map (facing p 167) ~1800, from the Waldo County Register of Deeds, which locates Samuel Veazie at the northernmost end of that lot. Samuel is mentioned800 in a 1797 Patent claim, in which he claimed 100 acres on which he was settled.
Treat549 has Lucy born in Wellfleet, Mass. The Eastham and Orleans, Mass., Vital Records389 has "Luse holbrooks," daughter of "Abizer and hana holbroo[ks] was born in Eastham Desembar 4 : 1750," and is preferred.
Bangor Hist. Mag. Lists Lucy as "Phebe." Lucy is chosen to lessen confusion with other "Phebes." In addition, Samuel and Lucy had a daughter Lucy, supporting the choice of the name.
