 Nothing much is known of Samuel Tolman.

The Edward A. Huebener collection of over 100 bricks originally collected by Mr. Huebener exhibits brick paintings of the houses from which the bricks came. The bricks have upon them painted scenes of (mostly) old Dorchester houses and landmarks. To see a list of all the bricks, choose the term Architecture in the list at the left of the screen and choose the first subsection -- the Edward A. Huebener Brick Collection and scroll to the bottom of that page to see icons for all the bricks.

 Detail from 1858 Walling map of Norfolk County. There is a J. Tolman on the west side of Washington Street just a little north of J.C. Hewin’s B.S. Shop. That this location might be that of the Samuel Tolman House is only supposition.
