Bio from F. B. Trowbridge book"James Trowbridge learned the trade of a wood turner in his native town, Newton, Mass., and inherited from the estate of his maternal grandmother the shop, tools, and the timber in the shop, formerly owned by his grandfather. Soon after his marriage he sold his shop and removed to Worcester, Mass., where he was engaged in farming the remainder of his life. He bought in 1739 from Matthew Clark for 360 Pounds the latter's farm of 60 acres in the southwesterly part of the town, afterwards adding many acres by purchase from other parties. He was a well-known and respected resident of Worcester. He held the office of tax collector in 1784. The section of the town where he lived came to be called Trowbridgeville, by which name it is still known, although none of his descendants live on the old homestead." FROM: F. B. Trowbridge. "History of the Trowbridge Family in America", (New Haven, CT: Tuttle, Morehouse and Taylor Co.,1908) , p. 512.
