Benjamin Holt Ticknor attended public schools in Jamaica Plain until 1853, when he enrolled in the Chauncy Hall School in Boston, to prepare him for Harvard. In February of 1862, he sailed for Ship Island (south of Mississippi) as an assistant quarter-master on the transport Idaho. He would return on the Constitution, which touched at Fortress Monroe. The same year he finished his schooling at Harvard, graduating with the class of '62. In July, he entered into the firm of his father. In August, when he was 20 years old, he enlisted in the 45th Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers and was commissioned on September 13, as second lieutenant of Company G. The regiment left in November for Newbern, North Carolina, but due to illness Benjamin would not join them until December. Their station was Fort Macon, and they saw action at Kingston on December 14, and then at Whitehall the next day, suffering 15 killed and 43 wounded at Kingston and 20 more casualties at Whitehall. Throughout the winter and spring they were sent on several scouts and expeditions and stormed a Confederate fortification at Core Creek, on April 28. On May 30, 1863 Lieutenant Ticknor was discharged to accept command in the 2nd Massachusetts Heavy Artillery, Company B. In this capacity he was returned home to recruit until August, when he was made captain of Company E. He was placed in charge of the recruiting camp at Readville, Massachusetts. In October, they were sent back to North Carolina. Captain Ticknor would remain here until his resignation April 17, 1864, shortly following the death of his father.

On June 8, 1865, he married Caroline Coolidge Cushman, the daughter of Freeman Loring and Emeline (Slade) Cushman. They were married in Boston, but shortly after they removed to New York for Benjamin to open a branch of Ticknor and Fields there. They would return to Boston in 1867, that same year Benjamin received a degree of A.M. from Harvard. He purchased a lot on Harris Avenue in Jamaica Plain from Captain Charles Brewer and built their house there. Their first child was Caroline, born September 1866, she would gain acclaim as a writer. They had Edith Slade in 1868 and then their first son, William Davis, born January 11, 1881. Then in 1882, they had Benjamin Holt Jr. (he would serve in WWI, in France: Cited for gallant conduct and devotion to duty under heavy enemy fire in many battles, including Battle of the Marne and at Verdun.) Their last child was a daughter, Emeline Cushman, born in 1884.


Benjamin joined the Edward W. Kinsley GAR Post no. 113. He became at partner in the firm of Fields, Osgood & Company on May 1, 1870 and retired from that position in 1878, spending a brief time with S.D. Warren & Company. In 1876, he served on the Boston City Council. Then in 1880 he joined the new firm of J.R. Osgood & Company, which failed in May 1885, when he bought it out and with his brother Thomas Baldwin as a partner, it became Ticknor & Company. In 1889, Ticknor & Company was acquired by Houghton, Mifflin & Company. He continued to work for them until his retirement in 1906. He was a member of the Loyal Legion, Society of Sons of the American Revolution, St. Botolph Club, Papyrus Club of Boston and the Century Club and Harvard Club of New York. Caroline died April 1913 and the following year on January 16, Benjamin Holt died at age, 71. They both were buried at the family lot in Mount Auburn.256
