Holmes has produced a unique resource in which he combined a brief biographical and genealogical entry for each New England immigrant head of household prior to 1700 with etymologies of many of the surnames, reflecting his conviction that the “study of names is of itself an absorbing subject.”
For each immigrant, Holmes included information on English origin (where known), date and place of first residence in New England, known relationships to other immigrants, removes from one town to another, and a variety of other biographical details.
Holmes covered all of New England to the end of the seventeenth century, including some deaths of immigrants well into the eighteenth century. He took notice of removes outside of New England, for the most part to New York.
