Biography of Hiram F. Hurlbut
Bristol County, MA Biographies

Hurlbut, Hiram F., was born in Ferrisburg, Addison county. Vt., October 25, 1836, a son of Louis and Philotnelia (Fuller) Huribut. His father was a farmer, cooper and contractor, held different public offices and was well known in that vicinity. The family is of old Puritan stock, the first settler of the name having been Thomas, who settled in Connecticut early in the seventeenth century. Hiram F. Huribut was educated in the schools of his native town and in the high school at Vergennes. Vt. He came to Massachusetts in 1873 and settled in Lynn, where he engaged in a general produce business, which he continued successfully for several years; later he engaged in the real estate business in Lynn for a time, and in 1887, in company with John W. Brimblecom and Ira W. Rogers, he purchased from Francis Hathaway of New Bedford the trout ponds and adjoining lands in East Freetown and began to raise trout for market and for stocking. Later Mr. Brimblecom retired and in 1894 Mr. Rogers sold his interest to Mr. Hurlbut, the whole being now in the possession of Mr. Huribut and his son, Byron S. Hurlbut. These trout ponds are beautifully situated in a wooded tract on the shores of Long Pond in East Freetown and Mr. Huribut has built up an extensive trade. Last season over 7,000 pounds of trout were shipped to market, besides 1,000,000 eggs and 50,000 "small fry" for stocking. In 1860 Mr. Hurlbut married Roxey, daughter of Isaac Satterly of Ferrisburg, Vt., and they have one son, Byron S. Huribut.
