BIOGRAPHY: Brewster Higley, 2d, was the eldest son of Brewster Higley, 1st, and the grandson of Captain John Higley. He was born December 12, 1709, in the old homestead at Simsbury, Conn. When twenty-five years old he married Esther Holcombe, daughter of John Holcombe and his wife Anne (Daughter of John Pettibone). The date of this marriage, as recorded in the Simsbury Record Book, was March 13, 1734. His father bought for him some land from his (Brewster, 1st's,) half-brother Nathaniel, and on this land the old colonial house here illustrated was built, where he took his bride. In this house all his children were born,, and the family dwelt here until after the death of his father, Brewster, 1st, in 1760.
