chg ◊ HOLMAN, Thomas, Dr. [1793-1826] – American physician and missionary RUGG1667 1C6
Dr. Holman was educated at Cherry Valley Medical School, New York, and prepared for his missionary work at the Cornwall Foreign Mission School in the summer before his departure for the Sandwich Islands [Hawaii].

Dr. and Mrs. Holman, members of the Pioneer Company, sailed from Boston, October 23, 1819, brig Thaddeus, Captain Blanchard; anchored at Kailua, Hawaii, April 4, 1820, a voyage of 164 days.

They were left at Kailua to establish a missionary station at the residence of the king, Kamehameha II. Later they moved to Lahaina and on to Honolulu before spending eight months on the Island of Kauai.

Dr. Holman, as the mission's first physician, delivered many of their first children to the young missionary couples. However, he and his wife did not adjust in spirit to their fellow workers and there was a mutual decision that they depart the mission. They did so July 30, 1820, returning to the United States with their one child, Lucia Kamamalu, in the whaleship Mentor, via Canton and the Cape of Good Hope, 1821, arriving at Boston, May 15, 1822. They had received their dismissal from the ABCFM. May 12, 1822.

Born in Brookfield, CT, Ruggles studied at the mission school at Cornwall before sailing with the first company of American missionaries [to Hawaii] in 1819. He and his wife, Nancy Wells Ruggles (1791-1873), future mother of six children, helped to establish two missions in the Hawaiian Islands; one at Waimea, Kaua'i, with the Samuel WHITNEYs, and another, at Hilo, with the Joseph GOODRICHes. Ruggles, who was so beloved by the Hawaiians that they called him "Keiki" (child), struggled with ill health and finally returned to the United States with his family in 1834. Samuel's sister, Lucia Ruggles Holman [qv], and her husband [qv] were in the same party of missionaries. [Day, op cit, p.111]

On October 23, 1819, Samuel Ruggles and his wife joined the first missionary company sent out by the American Board to the Hawaiian islands, others in this company being Rev. Hiram Bingham, 1st; Rev. Asa Thurston, Dr. Thomas Holman, Rev. Samuel Whitney, Elisha Loomis, Daniel Chamberlain -- each accompanied by his wife -- and three Hawaiian youths from the mission school at Cornwall, CT. Samuel Ruggles and his wife remained at the Hawaiian Islands fifteen years and did valuable work as teachers. They returned in 1834. [Hawley, p.549]
