    Boston Brahmin Ancestors
    Boston Brahmin Ancestors (2)
    The term "Boston Brahmin" refers to a specific social class in Boston, Massachusetts, representing a cultural and intellectual elite. Originating in the 19th century, this term was coined by writer and physician Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr., who used it in an 1861 article in the "Atlantic Monthly." The term "Brahmin" is borrowed from the caste system of Hindu society, where Brahmins are the highest caste, traditionally associated with priests and scholars. In the context of Boston society, it describes a class of wealthy, educated, and influential families with deep ancestral roots in New England, often traced back to the early colonial period.

    We have a number of ancestors listed among the Boston Brahmin, primarily from the Adams and Dudley families.
