Damaris Holcombe

     Damaris Holcombe was the daughter of Ensign John Holcombe and Ann Pettibone. Damaris Holcombe married William Gaines on 25 August 1736 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. Seaver does not mention this child.

McCracken notes that the birth and baptism not found. She obviously d.v.p., as not mentined in her father's will but must be inserted here in order to make her sister Martha, as recorded, 5th daughter. She is not listed among the children of her father in The Heritage of Granby page 173. She must not be confused with her 1st couisin who was having Ward children both before and after this marriage, which was probably childless.

Bowman places Damarius as a daughter of Thomas Holcombe III, probably based partly on the above information. She and William Gaines will be continued under Thomas Holcombe III.
