More info. From Gearle Brooks, e-mail on June 13, 1999....... Subject: Brooks Across the Pond..... John Brooks m. 25 May 1652 to Susanna Hanmore. Place of marriage was Windsor County, Ct. (Marriage info. from Ancestry.com "American Marriages B efore 1699." This John was probably the son of John of New Haven. I think he was born abt. 1630 in England. In Stiles' "Hist. and Gen. of Ancient Windsor" there is this item: "BROOKS, John, contracted, 1650 to attend the Rivulet Ferry, the town agreeing to make him a cellar (10 x 15 ft.) for to dwell in before the 25 Dec. His wages were to be bro't in before 8 Jan., and if it fall out that the cellar is not ready by the time aforesaid, the town shall provide a house to put his corn in. He is to attend two days to receive his wages in wheat, pease and Indian corn. He bought the N. part of the Hubbard lot on Backer Row, abt. 1665, built and was residing there 1668; removed to Simsbury before 1682, abt. which yr. he died. Inventory of estate 199.lbs. 8s. 9d; left five children living; m. Susannah Hanmore (Hammer) 25 May 1652; she died, 7 Nov. 1676. John Brooks was involved in a land law suit in Connecticut in 1643. In the "Public Records of the Colony of Connecticut" there is an entry in the Court session of 15 June 1643 where John Brooks was awarded xi lbs. in a suit. Brooks' suit was one of a dozen at that Court session against a former resident, Thomas Marshfield, who had left Windsor very precipitously. The 1643 date is the earliest proven date for John Brooks being in Windsor, but does suggest that he probably was there in 1642 or he would not have had a claim against Marshfield. There was no organized listing of early land records in CT until 1640 when the General Court required each Town to make an inventory of land holdings. There is no 1640 page for John Brooks in the Windsor records. His listing is on a later, undated page, so it is of little help to us. However, it does indicate that Stiles was in error when he said Brooks built on his lot. The lot already had a house on it, according to the transaction record. The emigration routes to the Connecticut Colony was from Plymouth in England to Boston, Mass., and then to New Haven, Windsor , Hartford and Wethersfield.

According to the "Seventh Ed. of the Handy Bk. of Genealogists", page 38...... Connecticut Capitol, Hartford -- Ninth Colony -- State 1788 - (5th) The settlement of Ct. began in 1633 from Former Mass. colonists. Some of them left Mass. on order of narrow religious leaders, & other because they had become weary of the intolerant attitude displayed by those leaders. The green Connecticut valley had beckoned them with abundant evidence of opportunities for material prosperity of the settlers, in the Newtown, Watertown, Dorchester, and Boston, moved their families and all of their belongings to the central part of Connecticut along the Connecticut River they established three new communities which later came to be called Windsor, Hartford and Wethersfield. It was an attack on these three communities that later caused the Pequot Indian War. Continues, Gearle Brooks........ "We know the majority of those emigrating did not come by themselves. We know that there are three Brooks brothers. They are: a. Henry Brooks (1591) of Concord, Mass. b. Thomas Brooks, Sea Captain of Watertown, Mass. c. John Brooks of New Haven, Connecticut

"Henry's brother, Captain Thomas, lived in Concord (11). Mackenzie, in giving the Brooks Arms used by both of these brothers, "Sable, three escallops or, a beaver Passant,", and the Motto, "Perseverando," states that the family was of Scottish origin on the basis of the Arms. However, Snow, without citing a location, indicates the family to be of English origin. Crozier attributes the above Arms to Heny Brooks, founder of the family in America (Colonial) Families of America, NY., 1935, 15:203)." CD 149, 1st Edition - James Savage, Vol. 1, Dist.

have been son of John of New Haven, or perhaps his brother." "The John who was the son of Henry married Eunice Mousall so this must be Henry's brother." "The names JOHN and THOMAS are very common names so it will be difficult to track them from England but if we follow HENRY which is uncommon then we should be able to find them using his name. In the IGI for British Isles I found in Suffolk County, HENRY BROOKS, married to Anna or Annis Jaquith. They had 5 children before 1630. There are two of the children's names that are in conflict that come from two different records. But otherwise they match up with the records for HENRY BROOKS of Concord, Mass. The problem comes to the wife. The Bateman Connection sites the data from Margret R. Price Henry's spouse is Grace Wheeler but from the same record the children of HENRY are source d from the "American Genealogist", Vol. 54, p. 235 (Miriam Brightman Eddy ---- THOMAS, HENRY and HANNAH BROOKS of Concord.) So American genealogists have HARRY and HANNAH BROOKS living in Concord. HANNAH, ANNA and ANNIS, I believe, are the same woman. The record has a TIMOTHY BROOKS before MARTHA. TIMOTHY doesn't appear in the records in England so he may have been born in America. CD 149, lst Edition - James Savage, Vol. l, Dict. of First Settlers of U. S.

NOTE from Asacarole (Carole Lett) on Jan. 24, 2001 ........................ "John Brooks moved with his family from Windsor to Simsbury after the death of Susanna. He still had young children, so apparently he didn't stay a widower for long. I do remember finding a reference in a Simsbury History book or something like that about John Brooks getting in trouble for mistreating his wife !! That is how I first knew he had remarried. Maybe you can find more in some Simsbury records on line." ANOTHER NOTE from Asacarole ....."John was in Windsor, CT., very early ca. 1640. He removed to Simsbury where he died in 1682. His only living son, Samuel, moved to Glastonbury when land was being granted there in 1693. This Brooks line was in the Glastonbury/Wethersfield area for many years."

New Haven, CT., in the Year 1685; New England Historical & Genealogical Register, Volume 1, April 1847, p. 157-158" John BROOKS Henry BROOKS Following information on John Brooks and family (he being one of the Founders of the New England area) .......... Compiled by Christopher Brooks, director of the NE-BROOKS Rootsweb Site and being presented here at Christopher's new Site, "The Tributaries." John/1g BROOKS, of Windsor, CT, plaintiff, represented by "Henry Woolcott, Attorney," prevailed, 15 June 1643, in a suit against Thomas Marshfield, and was awarded damages of "xil". He contracted, 1650, "to attend the Rivulet Ferry, the town agreeing to make him a cellar (10x15 ft.) for to dwell in before the 25 Dec. His wages were to be bro't in before 8 Jan., and if it fall out that the cellar is not ready by the time aforesaid, the town shall provide a house to put his corn in. He is to attend two days to receive his wages in wheat, pease, and Ind. corn." He married (1) 25 May 1652 at Windsor, Susanna HANMORE of Windsor, with whom he had 8 children. "He bo't the N. part of the Hubbard lot on Backer Row, abt. 1655, built and was residing there 1668 ... Head of household at Windsor, 1670. An undated Windsor record notes that John Brooks contributed lb.0-1-0 to the poor in other colonies. This probably references the relief effort in which Windsor sent money, silver, cloth, back and Flax to the Bay and Plymouth Colonies, where many towns had been burned by the Indians during Philip's War. The name of John Brooks is found on a list of Windsor contributors dated 11 Jun 1676. His wife Susanna died at Windsor 7 November 1676. He removed to Simsbury, and married a second time, perhaps to Elizabeth HAYDEN. John Brooks, inhabitant of Simsbury, was complained of for ill-treating this 2d wife. After the selectmen intervened to remove her from his home, he applied to the Governor and Magistrates in the County Court. 11 March 1681/82, Gov. William Leete and Magistrates Major John Talcott and Capt. John Allyn ordered: John Brookes haveing been with us & engaged to carry it loveingly with his wife, & to provide for her, we have thought fitt and doe hereby order you to return her to him, giving her like caution to carry suitably to her husband that so they may be comfortable to each other. But if it fall out otherwise, upon information & proofe we shall be ready to take such further order as shall appear necessary. John Brookes hath also engaged that none of his children shall abuse or doe wrong to his wife. The continuance of your care to looke how they carry it to
