PREFACE, 



In the year 1900 the author became interested in the history 
of his own ancestry and, visiting the Public Library in Boston, was 
surprised to find how largely they had contributed to the pioneer 
work in Connecticut and especially in the founding of New Haven 
Colony. The accumulation of such material, during the last four 
years, has led to the conviction that it should be preserved in some 
enduring form and so arranged as to be of historical value not only 
to members of the Brockett family but to the general public. 

He sought long for some one to engage in such an underta- 
king. Failing to find any one willing to assume so great an expense, 
or engage in work requiring so much of time, travel, and corre- 
spondence, he reluctantly undertook the work himself, believing as 
Frederick Douglas once said, that "We owe it to the generations 
that go before us, and to those which come after us, to perpetuate 
the memory and example of those who in a signal manner made 
themselves serviceable to humanity." 

The author of the "Doolittle Family in America" has happily 
expressed his view of genealogical work as follows : 

"With the passing years distance seems to lend an enchant- 
ment to our view of the olden time, and year by year we gain a 
more appreciative glimpse of that wondrous fabric into whose 
warp and woof our forefathers wove their lives. Pride in ancestry 
may be a form of vanity, but on the authority of a well known 
writer, 'It is an impersonal sort of failing, which, like to the ex- 
cessive love of country, leans virtueward,' for the man who 
fears to disgrace his ancestors is certainly less likely to disgrace 
himself." 

This generation, more than any other, is looking up from the 
crowding cares of business to catch an inspiration from the charac- 
ters of those who laid the foundation of this, the most glorious 
nation of all times. 



That it is a highly coveted privilege to number one's ances- 
tors among the fathers of the Republic, the large membership in 
numerous patriotic societies, as well as the recent publications of 
many family histories will testify. 

In sending forth this work, which has cost me so much of 
time and labor during the last four years, I wish to acknowledge to 
the fullest extent my obligations to Mr. John B. Koetteritz of Little 
Falls, N. Y., who kindly prepared the history of the descendants 
of Amos Brockett from 1757 to the present time; to Mr. Charles 
A. Brockett of Kansas City, who has spent much of time and 
money in tracing the English history ; to Mr. Francis E. Brockett 
of East Orange, who aided me greatly in conducting the immense 
correspondence requisite in its preparation ; to Mr. Sheldon B. 
Thorpe of North Haven for access to his extensive manuscripts 
relating to the settlers in North Haven ; and for valuable informa- 
tion kindly furnished by Mrs. D. M. Wells of Cleveland, Ohio; 
Mrs. J. R. Holley and Mrs. B. F. Judd of Bristol, Conn. ; Mrs. 
Mary B. Fenton of Atwater, Ohio ; Mr. Thomas Brockett of 
Fargo, North Dakota ; Mr. Frank S. Brockett of Parkersburg, 
W. Va., and Mr. A. C. Bates of the Connecticut Historical Society 
at Hartford. 

The arrangement, which is substantially that recommended 
by the New England Historic-Genealogical Society, is simple, and 
possesses many advantages to the general reader. 

Every person of direct descent, whether male or female, has 
a consecutive number, which can be ascertained by consulting the 
alphabetical index. 

Where a cross (-J-) appears before that number it shows 
that a more extended sketch of that person will appear further 
on, under the same number in large black figures. 

Grandchildren will appear with alphabetical prefixes in paren- 
thesis, thus (a), (b). Great-grandchildren in Roman num- 
bers (1.) (11.) (iv.). 

Names received too late to receive their appropriate consecu- 
tive number will appear with alphabetical suffices, thus 959a, 
959^, 959C- 

In giving an equal prominence to the daughters as well as 



the sons, in the preparation of this volume, the author was influ- 
enced by the views of Mr. George F. Tuttle, who in his "Tuttle 
Genealogy" states that "by actual calculation, in seven genera- 
tions, the proportion of descendants of one common ancestor, 
those bearing other names than the original will outnumber the 
latter in the proportion of sixty-four to one. That the chances 
are sixty-four to one that the family characteristics will be found 
in the female branches. The work of the Pater-lineist is too nar- 
row in its scope to merit the name of 'family' history." 

He maintains that the strong traits of character of the 
mother are more generally transmitted through two or three gen- 
erations than those of the father, and cites as an illustration the 
mother of Jonathan Edwards. 

Notwithstanding all the care which has been exercised, and 
all the means taken to verify names and dates, mistakes have 
doubtless occurred. 

The work is not as complete as I desired to make it. The 
families are widely scattered, and it is to be regretted that many 
have failed to reply to the urgent requests for information. 

To those who have so kindly responded to my inquiries I 
return my thanks, and shall retain very pleasant memories of 
personal interviews, hospitalities and epistolary favors. 

Many persons think the preparation of a genealogy is a 
money-making scheme. This is a great mistake. I think no 
genealogy ever paid pecuniarily. It is wholly a work of love. 

East Orange, N. J. Edward J. Brockett. 

Note — The amount of work involved in the preparation of such a 
book can hardly be imagined by any one who has not undertaken it. The 
aim of the editor was to trace the history all the way from the first settler 
in this country. There being few printed vital statistics in the seventeenth 
and eighteenth centuries, it has been necessary to examine all town records 
and wills on record, from 1637 to present date, in all towns and cities where 
the early families lived, and to copy those made by Brocketts. This has 
involved the searching of over 1100 manuscript volumes of town and 
probate records, and over 1200 printed volumes of genealogies, while 
months of time have been spent in the great historical libraries, involving 
a heavy outlay for traveling expenses, printing, postage and stationery. 
The correspondence alone has covered 3500 circulars, 3000 written letters, 
and return postage on 1500 letters. Competent persons have been em- 
ployed at great expense to make research, both in England and America, 
this in addition to the cost of printing, illustrating and binding the book. 



HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION, 



RELATING TO THE EARLY SETTLEMENT OF NEW HAVEN 
AND WALLINGFORD, CONNECTICUT, THE HOMES 
OF THE EARLY BROCKETTS. 



In 1620, when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, New 
England was one vast wilderness, inhabited only by Indians and 
wild beasts. For the first decade immigration was very light, and 
but few settlements were made. The oppressive acts of King 
Charles I. led to quite an increase of immigration between 
1630 and 1640. 

On the twenty-sixth of June, 1637, the ship Hector* with 
its consort, arrived in Boston, bringing a company of immigrants, 
who received a warmer welcome than ordinary. 

It was composed of persons of opulence, intelligence, and 
business experience, who had come with their families and whole 
estates from England for a home in America. 

With them came Rev. John Davenport, who had become 
celebrated in London, first as a preacher, second for his cour- 
ageous residence with and care of his flock during the dreadful 
plague in 1625, when the clergy generally fled, and, third, for 
coming in conflict with Archbishop Laud on account of his 
non-conformist views and through whose persecution he was led 
to withdraw from the Established Church and form a Puritan 
congregation in London. 

Also with them came Theophilus Eaton, a prosperous mer- 
chant, Deputy Governor of the East Land Company, and who 
for several years had resided in Denmark as an agent of King 
Charles I. On his return to London he left the Established 
Church and became a member of the Puritan congregation of the 
Rev. John Davenport. He had been one of the original patentees 

* See note at end of Historical Introduction.

of the Charter of Massachusetts. Not only the people of Boston, 
but the whole Colony of Massachusetts were desirous that this 
company should settle within its Commonwealth and made liberal 
proposals to them, but this was not in accord with the purposes 
of either Davenport or Eaton. Davenport's idea seemed to be 
to found a colony which should be absolutely controlled by the 
church; only church members eligible to office, or even allowed 
to vote, transferring to this country the English idea of "Church 
and State"; only, instead of the Episcopal Church, it must be 
a Church of the Congregational order with which he was 
identified. 

During the summer of 1637 that portion of the southern 
shore of Connecticut, lying between Saybrook and Fairfield, had 
been discovered through the pursuit of the Pequots by the Colo- 
nists ; and on the thirty-first of August, 1637, Theophilus Eaton 
headed an exploring party and came by water from Boston to the 
mouth of the Quinnipiac River. They were so well pleased with 
the locality that they left seven of their number to hold possession 
and prepare for the permanent occupation of the place. In the 
ensuing April (1638) the whole company, including John 
Brockett, whose descendants are given in this volume, arrived 
from Boston. 

On the Sunday following their arrival the company assembled 
under the trees twice for public worship. Mr. Davenport preached 
from the text : "Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit to be tempted 
of the Devil," warning his hearers that even here temptations are 
to be encountered and the fight with Satan has not ended, though 
they have changed the battleground from London to the wilder- 
ness. Ever after public worship was maintained. 

Among their first acts they purchased from the Indians two 
tracts of land, one of which covered many miles on each side of 
the Quinnipiac River, extending northward ten miles. By a 
fair treaty and subsequent fair dealings the Colonists made firm 
friends of the Indians, and were never seriously molested. A 
town plan was laid out and house lots assigned to each planter, 
according to the number of persons in his family and the amount 
of estate on which he was able and willing to pay taxes. 



HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION. 1 5 

On June 4, 1639, " a meeting of all the free planters was 
held to consult about settling the civil government according to 
God, and the nominations of persons that might be found, by 
consent of all, fittest in all respects for the foundation work of 
a church which was intended to be gathered in Quinipiac." 

At this meeting a covenant was entered into by the proprietors 
and in a formal and very solemn manner a resolution was adopted, 
"that only church members shall be free burgesses and they only 
shall choose among themselves the magistrates and officers." 

This covenant was signed by all the freeholders. Theophilus 
Eaton was elected Governor, and reelected each year from 1638 
until his death in 1657. John Brockett, a civil engineer and sur- 
veyor, was appointed "to lay out the large square in nine equal 
sections" ; also to lay out the "neck of land." Later, in the 
Colonial Records, mention is made of the accuracy of the angles 
and the equality of the sections as laid out by him. These remain 
to this day unaltered in boundaries, and comprise what is now 
known as the New Haven Green and the grounds of Yale 
University. 

On December 12, 1641, the town "ordered that a free school 
shall be sett up in this towne," which is said to be the first free 
school in New England. 

The interest of the colonists in education was further mani- 
fested in 1644 (fifty-seven years before Yale College was 
founded), in the passage of the following: "It is ordered that 
Joseph Atwater and William Davis shall receive of everyone in 
this plantation, whose heart is willing to contribute, a peck of 
wheat, or the value of it, for the reliefe of poor scholars at the 
College at Cambridge" (Harvard). 

Sunday was observed with the greatest reverence, no one 
being excused from attending "meeting" except for sickness. Non- 
attendance was punished by fines and sometimes by whipping. 

"New Haven was from the first a compactly settled town 
of more than one hundred and thirty families, and many of its 
inhabitants not only refined but wealthy. New Haven excelled 
all the other plantations in New England in the elegance and cost- 
liness of its domestic architecture. Hubbard, the historian, who 



1 6 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

was seventeen years of age when New Haven was founded, 
speaks of its 'error in great buildings,' and afterwards alludes to 
it again, saying: They laid out too much of their stocks and 
estates in building of fair and stately houses, wherein at the first 
they outdid the rest of the country.' 

"Tradition reports that the house of Theophilus Eaton was 
so large as to have nineteen fireplaces, and that it was lofty as 
well as large. Its principal apartment, denominated — as in the 
mother country — 'The Hall/ was the first to be entered. It was 
sufficiently spacious to accommodate the whole family when 
assembled at meals and at prayers. 

Family worship was an important feature of domestic life in 
a Puritan household. It was important because of its frequency, 
regularity, and seriousness. Whenever the family came to the 
table for breakfast, dinner, or supper, there was a grace before 
the meat ; and when they left it, a grace after meat, every person 
standing by his chair while the blessing was asked and the thanks 
were given. The day was begun with worship, which included 
the reading of Scripture and prayer, and ended with a similar 
service, all standing during the prayer."* 

The simple, regular life of a planter's family was favorable 
to health. As compared with the present time, there was but 
little excitement and but little worry for man or woman. News 
from home was communicated to the neighbors by "letters of 
intelligence," an institution which during the existence of the 
colony began to give place to printed newspapers. These were 
passed from hand to hand. Corn was husked and houses were 
"raised" by neighborly kindness. The whole plantation sympa- 
thized with a family afflicted with sickness, and the neighbors 
assisted them in nursing and watching. 

Families entertained travellers after the manner of Christians 
of the first century, and highly prized their visits as seasons of 
fellowship and opportunities for learning the news of the day. 

The names of very many towns in Connecticut were taken 
from England. That of Wallingford, derived from the Anglo- 



* Atwater's History of New Haven. 



HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION. VJ 

Saxon Gaullhen, i.e., "old fortification," was the name of an old 
town in England which Leland thus quaintly describes: "The 
town of Wallingford hath beene a very notable thing and welle 
waulled. And by the patentes and donations of Edmunde, Erie 
of Cornewaul, and Lord of the House of Wallingford, ther wer 
14 Parish Chirchis in Wallingford." 

The town was formerly surrounded by a wall; the castle 
stood by the river. Camden, in his "Britannia," says : "The 
castle's size and magnificence used to strike me with astonish- 
ment." He believed it to have been built by the Romans, after- 
ward destroyed by the Saxons and Danes, and re-built under 
William I. 

In 1667 the General Assembly of Connecticut granted to "the 
town of New Haven, liberty to make a village on the East River, 
if they see it capable for such a thing, provided they settle a 
village there within four years from May next." 

In 1670 the same authority incorporated "New Haven Vil- 
lage" as a town, and named it Wallingford. 

* "It appears that Abraham Doolittle and John Peck were 
on the ground in 1668, and John Brockett and John Moss in the 
autumn of 1669, which fact was undoubtedly the cause of their 
being selected as a committee to superintend and manage the 
affairs of the new village ; but it was not until the month of April, 
1670, that the first permanent settlement at Wallingford was made. 

"In May, 1672, after the planters had received their respective 
allotments, built their houses, and had assumed the form of a 
regular and settled community, the committee who had arranged 
all the preliminaries and incipient stages of the new plantation 
surrendered all their power and the title to the whole territory 
into the hands of the planters, who thereby became a corporate 
body; in other words, a town. The lands within the town limits 
became thus the property of the town, to be by them disposed of 
in such ways and to such persons as they might deem fit. 

"In these various transfers of the land, from the Town of 
New Haven to the committee, thence to the associated planters, 
and ultimately to individual proprietors, no money or considera- 

* Davis' History of Wallingford. 



l8 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

tion of any kind was paid. The land was worth literally nothing 
until actually settled and cleared. From time to time, as families 
became larger and individuals became able to bring more land 
under cultivation, additional allotments were made by town vote 
to each planter. At various times there were 'divisions' in this 
manner, until the whole territory was occupied. 

"In arranging these divisions, the whole population was 
classed into three 'ranks,' according to their ability to pay taxes. 
In all assessments, the first rank paid double the amount of tax 
charged on the 'loest rank,' and one-third more than the 
middle rank." 

Wallingford is the only town whose territory was taken out 
of that of the Town of New Haven before the incorporation of 
the city, in 1784. The subtraction of fifty families from its census, 
for the settlement of Wallingford, made the growth of New 
Haven appear less than it really was. The inhabitants of Walling- 
ford, though in a different town, were tributary to New Haven in 
the way of trade. 

In the New Haven Colony Laws for 1656 we find "That none 
shall be admitted Freeman or free Burgesses within this Juris- 
diction, or any part of it, but such planters as are members of 
some one of the approved Churches of New England." Also, "It 
is ordered, That no single person of either Sex, do hence forward 
board, or Sojourn, or be permitted so to do, or to have lodging, 
or house room within any of the plantations of this Jurisdiction, 
except in some approved Family, licensed thereunto, by the court, 
or by a Magistrate, or some Officer or Officers in that Plantation, 
appointed thereunto, where there is no Magistrate." Also that the 
head of the family should : "Duly observe the course, carriage, and 
behaviour, of every such single person, whether he, or she, walk 
diligently in a constant lawful employment." 

So careful were they in guarding the character of their new 
settlement that even the land which was appropriated to individ- 
uals as their private property was held under the condition that 
no sale was to be made to any stranger until the character of 
the proposed purchaser had been examined and approved by the 



HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION. 19 

town and leave granted by express vote of the town for such 
transfer of land. 

THEIR CURRENCY. 

* "The 'hopp ground land' was that which produced the 
materials for making hoops. Such land, though swampy, was 
then most valuable in the town. For in the great scarcity of a 
circulating medium, and of means for purchasing all foreign 
produce, these hoops and staves always found a great demand and 
a ready sale in the West Indies. Of course our farmers in trading 
with the New Haven merchants found these hoop-poles as useful 
as cash. Accordingly we find in the records of the town that 
these 'hopp ground lands' were most carefully managed, were 
granted out in very small quantities, and in the various grants 
recorded, each man was very careful that a piece of this precious 
land should be included in his farm. 

Hoops were made in large quantities in the winter season, 
when the farmers had nothing to do, and commanded from $20 
to $45 per thousand in New Haven, according to their size and 
the wood from which they were made. Hoop poles twelve feet 
long brought $40 per thousand. This trade has entirely ceased 
since 1880. 

MILITARY RECORD. 

"Wallingford furnished her quota of troops for the French 
and Indian wars of 1690, and again in 1694 for the defense of 
Albany. The whole amount of taxes paid by Wallingford, in 
common with other towns, for the defense of New York and 
Massachusetts, amounted to the enormous burden of about twenty 
pence on the pound; so that at the close of the year 1695 the 
colony had drawn from the pockets of the people and paid out 
seven thousands of pounds. We cannot but admire the self- 
sacrificing spirit of the citizens, especially when we remember 
that they submitted to this heavy drain from their resources from 
the most unselfish motives that ever actuated a people. 

"In October, 1774, the General Assembly met at New Haven 

* Davis' History of Wallingford. 



20 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

and a law was enacted to raise one-fourth of the militia for the 
special defense of the Colony, formed into companies of one 
hundred men each, and into six regiments. The companies from 
Wallingford were commanded by Captain Isaac Cook and Cap- 
tain John Couch. 

" That each Soldier that Engages in the Continental Service, 
for the Quota of Wallingford, shall be paid by the town the sum 
of five pounds Lawful money by the year, for three years, unless 
sooner discharged, to be paid the beginning of each year. 

" 'Voted fourpence halfpenny on the pound for the aforesaid 
purpose.' 'December 16, 1777, voted a tax of threepence on the 
pound for the benefit of the Soldiers and their Familys that are 
now in the Continental army.' " 

It is difficult at the present day to imagine the immense 
difficulties our fathers had to undergo in traveling from one town 
to another. Over mountains, through swamps, across rivers, 
fording, or upon rafts, with no compass to point out their irreg- 
ular way; now in the open space of the forest, where the sun 
looked in ; now under the shade of the old trees ; now struggling 
through the entanglement of bushes and vines, with perhaps a 
"bridle path" cut through the trees. Wherever a road had been 
built it was little better than none at all. 

Our ancestors wrought with a love and kindly fellowship 
with Nature. They planted and admired the Elm, the Oak, and 
the Chestnut for their beauty and for their long life. Their 
descendants seem to have inherited their love for these trees, as 
New Haven still abounds in its Elms and rejoices in being 
called "The City of Elms." 

The religious convictions of these early settlers influenced 
their social life. In view of the frequency with which the planters 
were convened in greater or less companies, it is evident that, 
however affected by their Puritanism, they were a social people. 

The restrictions in regard to the sale of property gave them 
a community of sterling integrity, religious character, and loyalty 
to each other and to their country. 

It is well, therefore, to trace the career of their descendants, 
who have been, as Miss Blakeman said of the Welch people, very 



HISTORICAL INTRODUCTION. 21 

respectable, well-to-do, religious, practical, temperate, industrious 
and honest. 

The design of genealogical research is to preserve the mem- 
ory of local events and enterprises, as well as family history, and 
to record the manners and customs, the character and services, 
the sacrifices, toils and sufferings of our fathers, and to glean from 
old records and family traditions, well worthy of preservation, 
material which would otherwise be lost to the State and Country. 
In furtherance of this design, this volume has been prepared. 



Note— In the summer of 1636 several vessels recently arrived from 
England being in the harbor of Boston, Thomas Miller, the master's mate 
of one of them, was apprehended and brought before the Governor for 
saying to some one who came on board that the Colonists were traitors and 
rebels because they#did not display the King's colors at their fort. The 
ship on which this insufferable speech was spoken was the Hector, of 
London, William Femes, Master. Sailing from Boston in July, she was 
chartered, after her arrival in London, by the company afterward known 
as the "Planters of New Haven." 

While they were preparing for another voyage to Boston she was 
seized by the Lords of the Admiralty for the King's service, to which the 
owner made a petition that the vessel was previously chartered and great 
loss would ensue. The Admiralty refused, and the captain made a second 
petition. Ultimately, the Hector was released. The names of the freight- 
ers were withheld in all the negotiations for release. 

The Lords of the Council were not ignorant that a considerable 
emigration to New England had already taken place, but supposed them 
to be, for the most part, poor and mean people of little advantage at home, 
and they were unaware how strongly this emigration was leavened with 
Puritanism. If they had known that several wealthy merchants of London 
inclined to non-Conformity, had embarked their whole estates in the 
Hector and were intending to go to New England with their families, they 
would have found means to frustrate their undertaking. 

As the names of those who embarked in the Hector are not found 
in the register of the emigrants from London in that year, some conclude 
that they may have sailed from some other port. We know that several 
ships sailed from Bristol. Among others, the Angel Gabriel and the James 
(which latter brought the Rev. Richard Mather and the Rev. Daniel Maude 
to Boston), but no record of that port remains. I am confident, however, 
that the Hector sailed from London. 

The correspondence between Captain Femes and the Admiralty suffi- 
ciently proves it. The company doubtless left England about the mid- 
dle of April, for soon after, and perhaps to meet cases similar to this, 
a proclamation was issued restraining the disorderly passing out of 
the Kingdom to America, and commanding that none of the King's 
subjects be permitted to go without a license from the Commission- 
ers of Plantations and a certificate that they had taken the oath of 
allegiance and of conformity to the discipline of England, returns to 
be made every half year to the Commissioners. — Atwater's "Colony of New 
Haven."

ytrst feneration. 



John Brockett, the first person of the name of Brockett, of 
whom any record can be found in this country, was born in Eng- 
land in 1609 and came to America in 1637, probably in the ship 
Hector, with Rev. John Davenport and Theophilus Eaton, which 
ship arrived in Boston June 26, 1637. The list of passengers on 
that vessel was never published, and, for prudential reasons, its 
clearance never appeared in the records of any English port so far 
as can be ascertained. (See foot note to the Hist. Introduction.) 
In regard to the persons who accompanied Rev. John Davenport 
to this country and who joined him in the settlement of New 
Haven, G. H. Hollister, in his "History of Connecticut," says, 
"They were gentlemen of wealth and character, with their servants 
and household effects. They were, for the most part, from Lon- 
don and had been bred to mercantile and commercial pursuits. 
Their coming was hailed at Boston with much joy, for they were 
the most opulent of all the companies who had emigrated to New 
England." 

Shortly after the arrival of the Hector in Boston, Eaton and a 
few others, unwilling to join the Massachusetts Colony, explored 
the coast along Long Island Sound, selecting a tract of land near 
the Quinipiac River, the present site of the City of New Haven, 
on which they left seven of their number to hold it for the win- 
ter. 

In the spring of 1638 (April 13,) Davenport with others 
among whom was John Brockett followed. They purchased the 
lands at Quinipiac of the Indians, and, "taking the Bible for their 
guide," formed an independent government or "Plantation Coven- 
ant" upon strictly religious principles. Prosperity attended them 



24 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

and they laid the foundations of a town and called it New Haven. 

John Brockett seems to have been one of the leading men of the 
company, as his name more often appears in the records of the 
New Haven colony than of any man in civil life, except that of 
Theophilus Eaton. 

He was a man of good judgment and one in whom the people 
had confidence, as shown from the fact, that in cases of trouble, 
or difference of opinion, he was generally appointed by the Plant- 
ers on a committee to adjust matters. 

When the Indians made claims obnoxious to the Settlers, he 
was appointed "one of a committee of four to investigate and ad- 
vise with the Indians." 

In 1660 when differences arose between the Conn. Colony at 
Hartford, and the New Haven Colony, as to boundary lines John 
Brockett was appointed one of the Commission to settle the 
troubles. 

He had a widely extended reputation as a Civil Engineer and 
Surveyor, and in June, 1639, laid out the large square, (which is 
now the centre of the City of New Haven, including the Common 
and the site of the College buildings) in nine equal sections. 
Mention is made in the Colonial Records of the perfection of 
this work, especially of the angles. The same boundaries still con- 
tinue to be used. 

A few years later the Governor of New Jersey deputed John 
Brockett "to lay out, survey, and bound the said bounds of Eliza- 
beth Towne, (now the City of Elizabeth,) the planting fields, 
town lots, and to lay out every particular man's proposition, ac- 
cording to his allotments and the directions of the Governor, for 
the avoiding of all controversies and disputes concerning the same, 
having had certain notice of the good experience, knowledge, skill 
and faithfulness of John Brockett in the surveying and laying out 
of land." 

This work was performed by John Brockett, and an allotment 
of land was made to him in the town of Elizabeth, which he held 
until 1670, when the record of its sale to Samuel Hopkins appears. 
In order to perform this work, John Brockett removed temporar- 
ily to Elizabethtown in Dec. 1667, residing there until 1670. The 



SKETCH OF JOHN BROCKETT. 25 

First General Assembly of New Jersey convened in Elizabeth- 
town and was constituted May 26, 1668. The town had chosen 
John Ogden, Senior, and John Brockett to represent them in 
the House of Burgesses.* 

PARENTAGE. 

There is very little of official record, in this country, concern- 
ing his birth. 

The tradition has existed, for two hundred years in New Haven, 
that John Brockett was the eldest son of Sir John Brockett, of 
Brockett Hall, Hertfordshire, England ; that, on account of his 
Puritanical ideas, his father (who had been knighted by Queen 
Elizabeth) disinherited him, and that John then gave up all claims 
to the title and estates of the Brocketts in England, in order to 
join the Puritan Band which came with Rev. John Davenport to 
America. 

This tradition has never met with any denial, and the writer, 
in receiving records, from all parts of the United States, of the 
early families of the name of Brockett, has found them generally 
commencing with Sir John Brockett, of Hertfordshire, showing 
that all branches of the descendants have maintained this belief. 

From another source the writer received the statement that be- 
fore coming to this country John Brockett fell in love with a Puri- 
tan maiden, that for her sake he gave up his right to the paternal 
estate, came to this country, established himself, provided a home 
for a wife, returned to England, married her and brought her to 
this country. 

In 1899 application was made to the Parish Clerk, at Hertford, 
England, to make research to establish these claims. In reply he 
writes : "I am told that the first son of Sir John was outlawed, 
is it not possible that this first son is the one who emigrated to 
America and settled there between 1630 and 1639?" 

From another source came the statement that Sir John Broc- 
kett not only disinherited his eldest son, but had his name re- 
moved from all the family records, so that it should never appear 
in any published lists of the family, or the connection with himself 
ever be traced. 

*Hatfielc?s Hist. Elizabeth. 



26 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

In one of the Connecticut religious papers, published in 1868, 
we find the following: 

"John Brockett, the eldest son of Sir John Brockett, of the 
county of Herts, Eng., who was a well known loyalist of the time 
of Charles I, becoming convinced of the truth of the Gospel as 
preached by the Puritans, relinquished his birthright and all his 
prospects of honor and fame, joined himself to the little company 
of Rev. John Davenport, emigrated to New England and settled 
at New Haven in 1637. Of him, as of Moses, it could be said that 
he preferred to suffer affliction with the people of God than to 
enjoy the pleasures of Sin for a season." 

Where there is so much of corroborative evidence there can 
be little doubt that he was the son of Sir John Brockett. 

There is no record of John Brockett's marriage, or the name 
of the person whom he married, but, as in the first tax bill, 
he is mentioned as one person and in the first allotment of seats in 
the church at New Haven had one seat, and as we find that in 1646 
a seat was assigned in the church to "Sister Brockett" it is evident 
that he found a wife between 1640 and 1646. 

It has been generally supposed that he was married in England 
before he came to this country, that his first son was born there, 
and that his wife followed him in 1644. We find, however, the 
tombstone of his first son (in the Montowese cemetery) states his 
death in 1720, aged 78 years, which would show that he was born 
in 1642. This, with the fact that nothing appears in the Colonial 
Records in regard to John Brockett (excepting his tax) from the 
middle of the year 1640 to the end of the year 1641, leads the 
writer to the opinion that he returned to England, spending a year 
or more there, during which time he married, and that his wife did 
not arrive here until 1644 or 1645. 

Among the many items in the records of New Haven Colony 
regarding John Brockett we note the following : 

June 4, 1639. The name of John Brockett appears as a Signer of the Cov- 
enant for Civil Government. 

"Appointed to lay out the large square in nine equal 
sections." 

"Appointed to lay out forthwith the 'Neck of land,' ac- 
cording to the allotments."

June, 1641. In the Tax list, against his name, 1 person, 15 Estates, Land 
in 1st division, 314 acres; Land on the Neck, y 2 of 2\

Feb., 1645. Ordered by the General Courte to survey certain lands. 
Oct., 1647. Appointed Inspector of Highways. 
March, 1648. Awarded by the General Courte 10 shillings per 1000 for 

killing blackbirds. 
June, 1649. In second division of Upland, the "Meadow" is granted to 

John Brockett and Thomas Barnes. 
June, 1653. General Courte ordered "That as John Brockett has spent 
much time and provided many things for the Soldiers, 
the Magistrates of New Haven allow him therefor, as 
they see cause." 
June, 1654. The General Courte appointed its proportion of Soldiers to 
co-operate with a fleet sent by Cromwell, against the 
hostile intentions of the Dutch on the Hudson River, 
and appointed John Brockett as Surgeon. 
June, 1654. John Brockett was appointed one of the Commission to 
settle the troubles with the Indians. This Commission 
was kind to the Indians, and John Brockett helped them 
to survey their land and fence it in, that the cattle and 
hogs should not spoil their corn. 
June, 1660. The General Courte appointed John Brockett one of a Com- 
mission to settle the differences between the Colony at 
Hartford and the New Haven Colony, as to boundary 
lines. 
From June, 1675, to June, 1676, the bloody war against the Conn. 
Troops called "King Phillip's War" raged. Six hundred of the Colonists 
were killed and the cost was over $1,000,000. During this war John Brock- 
ett was under appointment as Surgeon. 

John Brockett was Deputy to the General Courte of Conn, during the 
years 1671, 1678, 1680 to '82 and 1685. Year book of Colonial Wars, 1899- 
1902. 

In C. S. Livermore's "Republic of New Haven" he states "That Gov- 
ernor Eaton proposed in court that an assize of bread should be estab- 
lished, to overcome the diminutive size of the baker's loaves, about which 
there was much murmuring, and enquired if any one had a book that de- 
scribed the usual sizing of bread. John Brockett said that he owned one, 
and was requested to lend it to the Governor. This was one of the first 
deliberate reversions to English example on record, as the English plan, 
enumerating three lawful kinds of bread was embodied in the Colonial 
Record." 

As the land bought by the Colony of New Haven extended 
several miles from the town of New Haven, the plan of forming 
a new town on the location now known as Wallingford was agi- 
tated early in 1669. At this time wolves in thousands infested the 
few settlements in that direction, killing the cattle, carrying off the 



28 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

sheep and, by their unearthly howlings at night, added horrors 
to the location. The Indians, who were very numerous, were 
only friendly as influenced by fear. 

In the autumn of 1669 John Brockett with about one hundred 
persons from New Haven removed there. These settlers appoint- 
ed "John Brockett, John Moss, Abraham Doolittle and Samuel 
Street to manage all plantation affairs in ye said village." 

It was necessary to erect houses and to fortify them, to make 
preparations for the covering and feeding their cattle, and roads 
had to be built. It was pioneer work, but the settlers who had left 
the old world to escape despotism were ready for hardship. 

Authority was given by the General Courte to form a village 
and call it Wallingford. The same committee was instructed 
"to distribute the allotments of land, as shall best suit the condi- 
tions of the place and ye inhabitants thereof, and to procure some 
able and fit man to dispense the word of God among them." 

In the first allotment of land 38 plots were given to 38 families, 
each receiving either 12 acres or 8 acres according to the location. 
John Brockett received 12 acres, and his son, John, 8 acres. 

They found still greater trouble than New Haven had, in the 
matter of currency. Hoop poles were received by the New Haven 
merchants as cash, so we find that the raising of hoop poles was 
encouraged by the following enactment, "ordered that every 
planter should have, according to their rank, four, three or two, 
acres of the choice land upon the River called 'hopp ground' begin- 
ning at Pilgrims' Harbor. Four acres of this hopp land, upon 
Pilgrims' Harbor, on both sides of the river were granted to John 
Brockett thus showing that he was of the highest rank among 
the planters. When other settlers came they were not allowed to 
buy any land, until their application had been considered at a pub- 
lic town meeting and referred to a committee for investigation. 
If the committee, after careful examination, found the testimonials 
satisfactory, they recommended that a portion of land be allotted 
to the applicant. 

In the establishment of Wallingford we find adopted many prin- 
ciples and laws which greatly influenced the lives of the residents 
and their descendants, and, of course, affected the descendants of 



SKETCH OF JOHN BROCKETT. 29 

John Brockett. While such laws seem, at this day, unnecessary, 
they demonstrate that the early settlers regarded character as of 
more importance than money, and this led to the gathering in 
Wallingford of men of such sterling integrity and religious prin- 
ciples that for several generations their desscendants were 
greatly influenced thereby, and their moral tone was notably good. 
In this new setlement John Brockett at once became one of the 
leading men, and was called to fill many public offices, and, after its 
incorporation, for many years represented the town in the General 
Assembly. 

His house lot was "No. i at the extreme south end of the vil- 
lage 40 rods long and 20 rods wide, subsequently extended to 
Wharton's Brook." 

An Indian deed dated May 24, 1681, gave to John Brockett, 
John Moss, Abraham Doolittle and John Peck, land two miles in 
breadth east and west, and the whole length of said Wallingford 
bounds. 

Feb. 15, 1675 was observed as a day of fasting in Walling- 
ford, with reference to the organization of a church, and 13 set- 
tlers were designated (John Brockett being one of the number) 
who decided "that there be a church of Christ gathered to walk 
according to the Congregational way." 

John Brockett died in Wallingford, Conn., March 12, 1690, aged 
80 years. His will, made nine days before his death, reads as 
follows : 

I, John Brockett, of the towne of Wallingford, being sound in body, 
yet having a composed, good understanding and memory, I do make and 
ordain this my last Will and Testament in manner following: 

I give to my eldest son, John Brockett, all my lands and housings 
that I have not given deeds of gift or now sold, and all such meadows. 

Also, I give to my grandchild, John Brockett, that lives with me, 

two oxen, ; furthermore give to my son, John, the one half of my 

movable estate. 

I give to my daughter, Silence Bradley, also a quarter part of my 
moveable estate. 

Out of the other quarter, I give to my son Samuel 5 pounds ster- 
ling. Also to my son Jabez, two oxen, cart and plow, ; also to my 

son Benjamin's two daughters 20 shillings each. To my daughter Mary 
Pennington 20 shillings. Also to John Payne (married Abigail) 20 shil- 
lings. And in case there should not be enough in this quarter part mov- 
ables to pay my debts and funeral charges and these legacies, what wants 
must be taken out of the fore mentioned movable estate. Furthermore,

Seconfc feneration. 
2 

John Brockett, the eldest son of John 1st, was born in New 
Haven in 1642, baptized Jan. 31, 1643. 

In Davis' History of Wallingford it is stated that he was born 
in England. His tombstone in the Montowese Cemetery states 
his death in 1720, aged 78 years, which would make his birth in 
1642, when, from the official records, we find that his father was in 
New Haven, and the record of his baptism in New Haven, it would 
seem, that, in this respect, Davis' record was inaccurate. 

He was, however, educated in England and at Oxford, for a 
physician. He commenced practice in New Haven, but located at 
Muddy River, near North Haven, between New Haven and Wall- 
ingford, remaining there during his lifetime. 

He had a large and valuable medical library which at his death 
he gave to Yale College, for the use of the physicians in New 
Haven ; this became scattered so that no trace of it can now be 
found. 

He was a man of remarkable attainments for those days and the 
first permanently resident physician in New Haven Colony. He 
married Elizabeth Doolittle, daughter of Abraham Doolittle, who, 



SECOND GENERATION. 3 1 

with John Brockett 1st, was elected by the residents of Walling- 
ford to manage all the affairs of the town. Elizabeth was born 
April 12, 1652, died March, 1731, and was buried beside her 
husband in the Montowese Cemetery. 

In addition to his practice, Dr. John Brockett was a large land 
holder and carried on farming. 

He received from his father's estate, large quantities of land, and 
in the 3rd general division of land in 1680, which was determined 
by the number of persons in his family and the amount of estate 
on which he paid taxes, Dr. John received 24 acres, naming 4 
persons, and £40, while his mother, Widow Brockett, received 
20 acres, having 4 persons and £19. 

In the first allotment of lands in Wallingford he received 8 acres 
and in the allotment of 1689 he received an additional 44 acres. 
In 1 70 1 he was taxed in Wallingford on £87. 

He died Nov., 1720; all his property went to his widow 
Elizabeth, by will, which read as follows : 

Know all men by these presents, that I, John Brockett. of the town 
and county of New Haven, in the colony of Connecticut, in New England, 
being weak of body, but of sound mind and memory, not knowing how 
soon and how sudden my Great and Last change may come, do make and 
ordain this to be my last Will and Testament, which is as followeth : I 
give my soul to God, through Jesus Christ, my only Lord and Dear 
Redeemer, and my body to a Decent burial, according to the discretion of 
my Executor, hereafter named, in hope of a joyful Resurrection. 

And for that part of Estate, the Lord hath intrusted me with, not 
already disposed of, I dispose of as followeth: After my just debts and 
funeral expenses are paid; namely, I give unto my Dear and Loving Wife 
Elizabeth Brockett all my moveable Estate— as Stock, household goods, 
brass, pewter, iron and wooden ware, bedding and furniture, Surveyor's 
Instruments, even all the personal Estate I shall die possessed of, to be at 
her sole disposal. 

And as for my fifth division Lott, if I should not live to sell the same, 
I give to my wife to sell for the answering my just debts so far as it may. 

My Will is, and I hereby nominate and appoint my Dear and Loving 
wife Elizabeth Brockett sole Executor of this my last Will and Testament, 
hereby revoking and making void all former Wills or Testaments made 
by me.

New Haven Colony Covenant. She was born May 28, 1650, and 
survived her husband, marrying John Austin (as his second wife) 
Jany. 24, 1684. 

He was both cordwainer and farmer, accumulating a good deal 
of land, having purchased from Simon Tuttle in 1677 a part of the 
land which was originally owned by John Punderson ; and receiv- 
ing from his father, John Brockett, Sept. 2y, 1680, in deed "to my 
well beloved son Benjamin," a tract of land in New Haven.

father, took much interest in the political affairs of the times. He 
was also a large Real Estate owner. 

In the Colonial Records frequent mention is made of his name. 
He was appointed Commissioner to determine what highways 
were needed in the Colony ; was awarded 55 acres of land in the 
distribution of land. His name appears as one of the original 
proprietors at Wallingford and as owner of valuable "hopplands" 
at Pilgrims' Harbor. 

In 1701 he was taxed on the Grand List at Wallingford on £82. 
Sept. 27, 1680, his father, John Brockett, deeded land "to his

Jabez Brockett,, son of John 1st, born in New Haven, Oct. 
24, 1656, married Dorothy Lyman in Northhampton, Nov. 20, 
1691, the same day that her sister, May Lyman, m. John Hall. She 
was b. 1665 and died May 1, 1735. Jabez was one of the early 
settlers at Wallingford. 

The boundary of this town was in its early history very 
extensive, although from trouble with the Indians the residents 
lived quite compactly together. In its bounds, but quite a distance 
to the north, was a swamp called Dogs Misery, from the fact that 
wild animals when hunted took refuge in this swamp and the dogs 
were generally killed in their attempts to reach them. 

As these lands became valuable a great contention arose among 
the owners and on March 16, 1696, we find that Jabez Brockett, 
with his brother, Samuel, and 22 others, joined in a petition to the 
town to sequester a portion of Dogs Misery for a public watering 
place, and that Ensign Royce be caused to make restitution of 
land claimed by him for the public welfare. 

This petition was granted and it was decided to throw open the 
land for a public highway and watering place. 

At the time his will was admitted to probate, July 3, 1770, 
it is recorded Vol. 11 pp. 93-4, that he died Nov. 6, 1769, and that 
since his death, his eldest son, James, and two younger sons, Caleb 
and Nathan, had died leaving no legal representatives other than 
the four now surviving children, viz : Andrew Brockett, Mary 
Henderson, Dorcas Robinson, and Deborah Marks.

Pierpont* and Hannah Russell, and grand-daughter of Rev. James 
Pierpont, who was for 30 years pastor of the First Church in 
New Haven, Ct, and one of the founders of Yale College ; she 
was also a grand-daughter of Rev. Thomas Hooker, one of the 
founders of the Connecticut Colony, at Hartford. 

She was born Oct. 20, 1738; died June 21, 1773. In 1760 

*It was Sarah Pierpont, a sister of Joseph, then in her thirteenth 
year, whom Jonathan Edwards describes in the following words, which he 
wrote upon a blank page of one of his books : 

"They say there is a young lady in New Haven who is beloved of 
that Great Being who made and rules the world, and that there are cer- 
tain seasons in which this Great Being, in some way or other, comes to her 
and fills her mind with exceeding sweet delight, and that she hardly cares 
for anything except to meditate on Him, that she expects to be received up 
where He is, to be raised up out of the world, and caught up into Heaven ; 
being assured that He loves her too well to let her remain at a distance 
from Him always. There she is to dwell with Him and to be ravished 
with His love and delight forever. 

"Therefore, if you present all the world before her, with the richest 
of its treasures, she disregards it, and cares not for it, and is unmindful 
of any path of affliction. 

"She has a strange sweetness in her mind, and singular purity in her 
affections; is most conscientious and just in all her conduct, and you could 
not persuade her to do anything wrong and sinful, if you would give her 
all this world, lest she should offend this Great Being. She is of a won- 
derful sweetness, calmness, and universal benevolence of mind, especially 
after this Great God has manifested himself to her mind. She will some- 
times go about from place to place, singing sweetly, and always seems to be 
full of joy and pleasure, and no one knows for what. She loves to be 
alone, walking in the fields and groves, and seems to have some one invis- 
ible always conversing with her." 



42 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

Richard Brockett and Mary, his wife, were members of the 
Congregational Church in New Haven. 

In the "North Haven Annals," by the Historian, Sheldon B. 
Thorpe, it is recorded in regard to Military Service in the Revolu- 
tionary War, that "in 1779 Col. Russell issued an order to the offi- 
cers of the Alarm List and the Militia of New Haven ; on its back 
were endorsed the names of Richard Brockett, Ebenezer Brockett, 
and Isaiah Brockett. He was a man of great integrity of char- 
acter and "his word was as good as his bond." 

In the Conn. Colonial Records, Vol. 10, we find that in 1776 
Richard Brockett dropped a 20-shilling bill in the fire, and on 
proving that it was accidental, the General Assembly ordered the 
amount to be made good to him. 

On Dec. 14, 1790, seventeen years after the death of his first 
wife, he married a widow, Jemima Jacobs, who survived him and 
died Sept. 7, 1830. He was buried in the Montowese Ceme- 
etry. His will, which was proved April 13, 1813: 

I, Richard Brockett, of North Haven, in the County of New Haven, 
in the State of Connecticut, do on this 13th day of April, 1813, make and 
ordain this my last Will and Testament. 

Imprimis my Will is that my just debts and funeral expenses be paid

Titus Brockett 4 (Samuel? Samuel, 2 John 1 ), son of Samuel 
and Rachel (Brown) Brockett, was born July 28, 1700. 

He married Mary Turhand, daughter of Henry Turhand, of 
Wallingford, Feb. 12, 1728. She died May 11, 1777, aged 64

years. Titus was one of the most active Episcopalians in the 
place, in 1757, and was one of the four largest contributors 
toward the 2d Episcopal church edifice, in 1762. He was at 
one time a member of the famous Parson Andrews church, who 
was so violent a Tory that he had to flee to Nova Scotia for 
safety. 

Parties had been formed for and against the British Govern- 
ment. In Wal lingford the feeling ran high and Titus sided with 
the Tories. 

In Davis' History of Wallingford, we find that Titus died of 
smallpox July 29, 1773 ; at the time of his funeral the Whigs 
would not allow him to be buried with other members of the 
family, but compelled Turhand, Kirtland and two others, to have 
the grave dug on a wet, spongy place directly under the east 
fence of the burying ground, the water immediately filled the 
grave though in mid-summer ; it was therefore necessary to sink 
the coffin with two rails till the earth could be returned. 

Eor a long time these rails remained standing up out of the 
grave and did not decay; some of the family supposed that the 
timber was supernaturally preserved as a testimony against the 
Whigs. 

In his will, dated Feb. 8, 1770, he gives a portion of his 
property to the Church of England, also to his wife, Mary, his 
nephew, Zuar, and his niece, Rachel, wife of Constant Kirtland.

Hartford, on June 16, 173 1, who d. Jan. 19, 1734. 

He married 2d, Elizabeth Culver, Feb. 25, 1737. She sur- 
vived him and married Daniel Frisbie, May 4, 1748. 

Isaac was an ardent churchman. He had a negro boy named 



FOURTH GENERATION. 49 

Esau, as slavery was a common custom in Connecticut with well- 
to-do people of that date. 

Immediately after the Revolution a statute was made declar- 
ing that no negro or mulatto child born in this State after March 
i, 1748, should be held in servitude, after he or she should 
arrive at the age of 25 years. Although the custom had ceased 
the act prohibiting slavery in Conn, was not passed until 1848. 

He died Oct. 18, 1746, and his will was probated Nov. 13, 1746. 

Titus was made executor, "I give to my wife Elizabeth the home- 
stead until my youngest son is of age, and then to have one-third, after my 
daughter, by my first wife, has what I shall by this Will give her. I give 
to my daughter Rachel all the movable estate which her mother brought, 
also 135 pounds sterling which I received for land that came in right of 
her mother. I give and bequeath to my three children, Rachel, Esther and 
Ruth, and the child expected, if a daughter and she should live, to them 
their heirs, all my real estate, and the remainder of my personal property, 
to be equally divided; and in case the child now unborn should be a son, 
then to have a double portion of all my estate, except that given to Rachel, 
his estate invoiced at £4478 2s. 6p."

who died a widow Oct. 3, 1796, aged 51 years. 

In Dec, 1764, Ichabod was appointed as Guardian of Anna, 
Priscilla, and Moses, three minor children of Moses. 

On Oct. 3 and 9, 1769, Walter Munson obtained two judg- 
ments against Ichabod ; there being no chattels, a portion of his 
land was sold to satisfy these judgments. 

109 

Moses Brockett, 5 (Moses* Moses, 3 John, 2 John, 1 ), son of 
Moses and Priscilla (Grannis) Brockett, was born about 1751. 

According to the Records in the First Congregational Church 
in New Haven this Moses married Dorothy Allen, March 15, 
1776. In the New England Gen. Register Vol. 6. p. 133, under 
the list of prisoners taken from the troops at Quebec, Dec. 31, 
1775, was a Moses Brockett. 

In the "N. Y. Records of Soldiers in the Revolutionary War" 
appears the statement "The State of Connecticut furnished to 
the State of New York a certain quota of Soldiers." Among the 



56 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

list of Soldiers thus furnished in the Third Regiment under Col. 
James Clinton, appears the name of Moses Brockett. On a 
subsequent page, "Moses Brockett was appointed as Corporal 
Dec. 24, 1776, in the 5th Co. of the Third Regiment, and after- 
ward became a prisoner of war." 

On another page, that Moses Brockett was in the 5th Regi- 
ment under Col. Lewis DuBois, and still later that Moses was a 
member of the 2d Regiment of Artillery, under Col. John Lamb.

Isaiah Brockett, 5 (John, 4 Moses, 3 John, 2 John, 1 ), son of John 
and Thankful (Frost) Brockett, was born Dec. 4, 1753, and died 
Feb. 13, 1840. 

He married Sarah Cooper 3 , Aug. 23, 1775, who died Jan. 21, 
1824. Isaiah was a Corporal in the Revolutionary War ; but 
the records of the Town of North Haven, from 1786 down to 
1858, with all the marriages, deaths, &c, were burned, a loss that 
never can be replaced. 

According to Conn. Historical Society Col. Vol. 7, p. 220, 
Isaiah, with Isaac, Munson, John, Enos and Jacob Brockett, 
signed an agreement as Volunteers in Benjamin Trumbull's Co., 
and enlisted for three months. This original document is in pos- 
session of Jas. Torry. A six-dollar bill "Continental Currency," 
which was paid him for his services after the battle of Long 
Island, is now owned by Chas. A. Brockett, of Kansas City, Mo. 

In an account given by Isaiah's great grandson Eli J. Brockett, 
he says, "Although a small boy, I can remember him and remember 
hearing my father tell many times of his being with Washington 
at the battle of Long Island." "On the retreat to New York 
Isaiah was taken sick with dysentery, fell out and crawled into 
a barn or shed, as he could go no further. One of his comrades 
helped him so that he got to New York with the rest ; getting no 
better, word was sent to North Haven, and one of his neighbors 
rode on horseback to New York, put grandpa on the horse, the 
neighbor leading the horse all the way; as he was not able to 
return to the army, he hired a man to go in his place."

ard and Mary (Pierpont) Brockett, was born in North Haven, 
Conn., Jan. 17, 1757, and died Jan. 17, 1820.

successor of Rev. John Davenport, as pastor of the First Church 
in New Haven, and who for 30 years ministered there faithfully, 
and for whom there is a memorial tablet in the church, with date 
of birth and death and this inscription : "His gracious gifts and 
fervent piety, persuasive, elegant and winning manners were de- 
voutly spent in the service of his Lord and Master." He was 
one of the founders of Yale College. Its settlement in New 
Haven was but a fulfillment of one of his plans. 

May 8, 1772, Mr. Brockett married Rebecca, daughter of Joel 
Tuttle, of East Haven. She was born Dec. 20, 1756, and died 
Sept 14, 1835.

He was administrator on the will of Capt. Gideon Todd, and 
on other Estates. From 1799 to 1806 he represented his town 
in the General Assembly of Conn. 

Early in life he showed a strong interest in military affairs. In 
the "Record of Conn. Men in the Revolution," in the State Library 
at Hartford, in Vol. of Manuscripts, pp. 547-8, his name appears 
as in Lieut. Col. Sabin's regiment. He was afterward a captain 
in the Conn, militia. He became a forehanded farmer and in his 
later years also owned a shoe manufactory. He and his wife are 
members of Dr. Trumbull's Church. In his will, after giving his 
dwelling and personal property to his wife and daughter, he gave 
his factory and over fifty acres of land adjoining to his two sons.

child. Moses was a soldier in the War of 1812 and present at the 
bombardment of New London. He died about 1870. 

The following incident in his early life was furnished by his 
grandson. 

In early life Moses T. was a farmer. While at work one day 
on his farm the Minister of the Presbyterian Church called upon 
him, and asked him to mow a meadow lot for him adjoining his 
house; he refused as he was fully engaged at the time, much to 
the disappointment of the minister, who asked Mr. Brockett if 
he would mow his meadow one year from that date. Mr. Brock- 
ett said he would ; the date proved to be on Sunday ; early in the 
morning Mr. Brockett went to the parson's meadow and com- 
menced cutting the hay, and directly under the parson's window 
started to sharpen his scythe ; up went the window and out came 
the parson's head, saying, "what are you doing there?" Back 
came the answer, "Mowing your hay according to contract;" 
"Well ; well !" says the parson, "I will pay you for the day's work 
but stop now and come to-morrow." "I can not," said Mr. 
Brockett, "as I am engaged for that time."

of Yankee notions, and took his sons to work with him as they 
became old enough ; in 1840 they had the reputation of being 
"very ingenious men, who could make almost anything." Mr. 
Fowler invented the first machine for making solid headed pins, 
which astonished the people, and later perfected a machine that 
not only made the pins, but fastened them on the paper all ready 
for market in one movement. This gave him the reputation of a 
great inventor.

Enos Brockett, 5 (Enos, 4 Samuel? John, 2 John, 1 ), son of Enos 
and Miriam (Bradley) Brockett, was born Jan. 4, 1755; died 
1828. 

He married 1st, Hannah Jacobs, who died Feby. 7, 1802; had 
8 children; married 2d, Eunice Lucy (Stiles) Tuttle; her mother 
was wife of Rev. Isaac Stiles (half brother to Mr. Ezra Stiles, 
President of Yale College.) She was a widow, who was born 
July 12, 1751; she was married 1st, to John Tuttle; 2d, to Enos 
Brockett June 19, 1803. Enos married 3d, Widow Mansfield. 



68 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

Enos was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, being mustered out Feb. 
17. 1777- At one period of the war, finding circumstances such as to prevent 
his enlistment, he hired a substitute and sent him to the front. Tradition 
maintains this recruit was killed in one of the engagements around New 
York. During Tryon's Invasion of New Haven, 1779, Enos recovered the 
body of Jacob Thorpe, placed it across his horse, and having received per- 
mission, took it home to North Haven, Conn. Enos died in 1828. His 
will, made in 1824, gives a portion of his estate to his beloved wife Lucy, 
who was his second wife ; this throws doubt on his having married a third 
time. If he married after 1824 he would naturally have changed his will. 
The widow Mansfield is supposed to refer to one of the sisters of his wife, 
as one, Mary, married Richard Mansfield ; the other, Keziah, married Jesse 
Mansfield. In this event the term Lucy in the will could not refer to the 
third wife. He also served in the War of 1812. 

His will gives his estate "To my beloved wife Lucy, my sons Thos., 
Jarius, Justus, Levi, and three daughters, Hannah Butler, Sally Darrow and 
Patty Norton."

FIFTH GENERATION. "/T, 

He was a man of great independence in thought and action. As 
early as the Revolutionary War he had taken sides with the patriot 
cause and shown the courage of his convictions by his enlistment 
in the army to fight its battles. 

In the matter of religion he was the second person in Southing- 
ton to withdraw his membership from the Congregational Society 
and join the Episcopal Church as the following record will show : 



"Cheshire, Feb. 5, 1785. 
This is to certify whom it may concern, that Mr. Joel Brockett, of 
Southington, declared himself a professor of the Church of England in my 
care on the 15th dav of October last. 

TEST. SAMUEL ANDREWS, 

Missionary at Wald." 



This coming so soon after the bitterness of feeling against all 
English institutions and sympathies, marks a strong character, 
since the conclusion is inevitable that he must have acted from 
conscientious motives. In politics he seems to have been equally 
independent for Timlow's "Sketches of Southington" is the author- 
ity for the statement that he was one of the early followers of Jef- 
ferson, against Adams, and that he suffered greatly in social posi- 
tion in consequence. We quote, "It is said that road masters 
would plow up the ground in front of the lands of these men, and, 
so far as possible, leave dirt and stones to harass them. The water 
would sometimes be dammed up before their houses, but great 
pains would be taken to accommodate the politically orthodox." — 

Of the business career of Joel Brockett the record in history is 
brief. — "The tavern at Plantsville, situated at the junction of the 
roads leading from Farmington to Waterbury and from Bristol 
to New Haven, was kept by Joel Brockett." His widow apparent- 
ly retained the ownership of the tavern after she married Daniel 
Frisbie, and later it came into possession of his son Alpheus 
Brockett.

Zenas Brockett 5 (Samuel, 4 Samuel, 3 Samuel, 2 John 1 ), the son 
of Samuel and Ruth (Bradley) Brockett, was born in Walling- 
ford, Conn., July 12, 1752; died Oct. 30, 1838. 

He married Abigail Johnson, Jan. 31, 1780, who was born 
Dec. 2^, 1753, and died Oct. 30, 1813. 

Zenas lived on Brockett Hill near Pearl Lake, Waterbury, 
Conn., where he purchased a large tract of land from the Indians, 
and was a farmer by occupation; was well known and highly re- 
spected, a man of sterling integrity, upright and true in all his 
dealings and beloved by all who knew him. 

He would transact no business on Sunday. He gave the land 
for a cemetery, known as Brockett Cemetery, where his body 
was laid to rest. 

Zenas Brockett, with David Frost and Isaac Terrell, were the 
first Baptists in the town of Waterbury. 

"By them, and others, meetings were started and held at least 
once a month in Waterbury, 12 miles from their homes; the 
journey being performed on foot. These meetings were thus 
maintained for 12 years until in 1803, the Waterbury Baptist 
Church was organized. 

"These men were of tried integrity and purity of Christian life 
and character, and their memory should be honored as leaders of 
the infant church. Poor in worldly wealth, but rich in Christian 
grace.*

Rachel Brockett, 5 (Samuel? Samuel, 3 Samuel? John}), 
daughter of Samuel and Ruth (Bradley) Brockett, was born at 
Wallingford, Jan. 23, 1755, and came with her parents to live in 
what is now called Wolcott, Conn. In this town there is a high 
hill, formerly known as Pike's Hill, from the summit of which may 
be had a magnificent view, and on this hill was located the first 
cemetery. 

When Rachel Brockett died Oct. 17, 1776, she was buried in 
this cemetery and her tombstone bears the earliest date of any 
now to be found there. The stone is inscribed in the quaint style 
of the 1 8th century with a Death's head staring from the rounded 
top, and queer borders and scrollwork intermingling and relieving 
the inscriptions. It reads as follows : 

"In memory of Rachel Brockett, who died Oct. ye 17th, 1776, in ye 
22nd year of her age." 

"While you are blooming, young and spry, 
Perhaps you think you ne'er will die; 
But here's a witness of the truth, 
That you may die while in your youth." 

This old cemetery has a bit of a legend connected with it, touching 
on the supernatural. 

At the top of the hill was once a house in which lived an old man 
named Horton. As he drew near the end of life he expressed a strong 
antipathy to being buried in the old cemetery in Pike's hill. "If you bury 
me in that lonely place," he said repeatedly, "I will haunt you." 

But they buried him there, and sure enough people having occasion 
to pass through the old road near by were startled by seeing an apparition 
among the graves; and as this was seen by a number of different people at 
different times, the place came to be known as the haunted grave yard, and 
was given a wide berth after nightfall. 

No fence surrounds this almost forgotten cemetery. No care is taken 
of it. Neglected, ignored, it lies among tangled brushwood in the forest 
stillness, where only the birds of the air and the locust and cricket sing 
requiems for the repose of the dead.

Benjamin Brockett 5 {Benjamin} Benjamin? Samuel? John 1 ), 
son of Benjamin and Althea (Ray) Brockett, was born 1781. 

He married Mabel Blakeslee, who was born 1777 and died 
Dec. 18, 1853. O n tne tombstone at Montowese, it says : "Benja- 
min, born 1781, died Feby. 16, 1834; and Mabel, his wife, born 
1777, and died Dec. 18, 1853; Alonzo, his son, born 1808, died 
Feby. 1, 1830." 

In the History of New Haven, by John L. Rickey, we find that 
Benjamin had a son Lucius, born Dec. 6, 1817; died Oct. 29, 1891. 



78 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

Benjamin was appointed as executor of his father's will June 6, 
1804, and residuary legatee. This Benjamin seems to have been 
a great favorite with his father as he left nearly all his property 
to him. 

Benjamin, the grandfather, was in the Revolutionary War and 
carried a powder horn bearing the inscription, "Benjamin Brock- 
ets North Haven. The ox from which the horn was taken was 
killed and eaten in the Rev. War." 

Benjamin's will, dated Nov. 28, 1833, gives to his wife, Mabel, 
one-third of his property outright and the life use of another one- 
third, and one-third to his son Lucius ; and appoints Ebenezer 
Pierpont as executor.

litigation was prevented by the firm stand and wise counsel of 
Charles Brockett during his continuance in office, and his popu- 
larity so great in the troublous times succeeding the war that his 
successor resigned and Mr. Brockett was recalled to fill the place. 
He was for many years a commissioner for New Haven County, 
and a director in New Haven County Bank. Charles was the first 
manufacturer of wagon springs in this country ; was an able busi- 
ness man and accumulated a handsome fortune. He married

Alanson Brockett 6 (Channcey? Abel? Moses? John? John 1 ),

Oswego, N. Y., Feb. 7, 1802, and died March 1, 1872. In the 
spring of 1820 he accompanied his father upon his emigration 



SIXTH GENERATION. 85 

to Ohio, and resided at Farmington, where he became a successful 
farmer. 

Alanson was an ardent abolitionist, a man of great force of char- 
acter, and was never turned from the path of duty by any circum- 
stance of personal expediency. He was an earnest worker on the 
famous "underground railroad" by which so many slaves were 
aided in securing their freedom ; a smoke house near his residence 
was regarded as a "station" of the historical railroad above men- 
tioned. The last party of slave owners that visited that section in 
pursuit of slaves stopped all night at a hotel near by, when their 
slaves were in concealment in the smoke house. During the night 
they were secreted in a swamp which could only be reached by a 
concealed path impossible for a party not acquainted to find. The 
presence of these slave owners exasperated the people, and during 
the night the citizens, including Mr. Brockett, cut off the manes 
and tails of their six horses, and with tar pasted the following 
notice upon the horses : 

"Ye hunters of negroes beware — 
We've tar and we've feathers to spare ; 
And if you don't clear out, 
A coat of a Tory you'll wear." * 

He married Anna M. Moffet Jan. 12, 1826, who was born Feb. 
17, 1809, and had 14 children. He married second, Almira Le 
Griffith, March 25, 1866; she was born April 8, 1801.

Harvey Barnes Brockett 6 (Chauncey, 5 Abel, 4 Moses? John, 2 
John 1 ), son of Chauncey and Anne (Redvvay) Brockett, was born 
April 13, 1809, and became a prominent preacher for the "Church 
of the Disciples," and died Sept. 12, 1848. 

From his early childhood he seemed absent-minded. It is re- 
lated that when a boy one day his father sent him across the field 
near his house to put up the bars. He started in a straight line 
for the place, with his head down, as if in deep thought. In the 
middle of the field stood a large tree. His father, looking out of 
the window, saw that he was in the line of the tree, and soon 
struck his head against it. He stopped, looked at the tree, walked 
around it, and again, with his head down, went straight on and 
put up the bars. He married Mary Ann McCreary, June 3, 1830, 
who was born May 2, 1812, and died Sept. 3, 1847.

Pierpont Brockett 6 {Joseph? Richard, 4 Moses? John, 2 John 1 ), 
son of Joseph and Rebecca (Tuttle) Brockett, was born in North 
Haven, Conn., Oct. 30, 1787. His early years were passed in his 
native town, where his father was a forehanded farmer. As a boy 
he was of a studious turn, fond of reading and a favorite of Rev. 
Benjamin Trumbull, D. D., the historian of Connecticut, and pas- 
tor of the Congregational Church at North Haven. The vener- 
able doctor helped him in his studies, loaned him books and in var- 
ious ways encouraged his mental development. In 1810 a Bap- 
tist preacher, Rev. Joshua Bradley, came to North Haven and 
attracted crowds to hear him. Among those who were converted 
under his preaching were Pierpont Brockett, and his brother Jesse, 
who were baptized and formed the nucleus of a Baptist church. 
The former, having found peace himself, was earnestly desirous 
of leading others to the Saviour, and began early to establish 
meetings in the surrounding districts. Dr. Trumbull felt grieved 
that his "favorite boy," as he called him, should attempt to hold 
meetings without his authority, and at first rebuked him strongly, 
but finding that he could not silence him, ceased his opposition. 

In 1812, Mr. Brockett, as a loyal citizen, felt called upon to take 
up arms for the defense of his country, and enlisted under Com- 
mander Abraham Hubbard ; was first made ensign, and ordered to 
Groton and New London, where he served with the rank of lieu- 
tenant. When the war was over he felt that God had called him 
to enter upon the work of the ministry, and commenced a course 
of theological study under Rev. Jeremiah Chaplin, D. D., who be- 
came the president of Waterville College ; but at that time had a

class of theological students at Danvers, Mass. Two of his class- 
mates, Coleman and Wheelock, were among the first missionaries 
sent from this country to Burmah. On Jan. 21, 18 19, he was 
ordained and became pastor of the Baptist Church in Canton, 
Conn., but in the autumn of 1822 yielded to the urgent request of 
his friends in the ministry to became a State missionary for Con- 
necticut, under the direction of the "Connecticut Baptist Conven- 
tion ;" his love for pastoral work, however, led him at the end of 
the year to resign this work and accept the pastorate at Clinton, 
Conn., where his labors were blessed of God for five years. 

In 1828, he was called to the pastorate of the Baptist Church 
in Essex, Conn., where he remained for seven years, during which 
time there were large accessions of members, and the church be- 
came strong in gifts and graces. For the next few years at the 
request of the State Convention he took new and small churches 
to develop them and bring them into stronger condition. In 
1835 he became pastor of the Agawam Church in West Spring- 
field, Mass, and in 1838, of the Church in North Stonington, 
Conn., remaining there three years. 

In 1840 he accepted the pastorate of the First Church in Say- 
brook, Conn., (now Winthrop;) in 1843 at Lyme, Conn.; in 1845 
at Colchester, Conn., where for four years he was eminently suc- 
cessful in building up a strong united church. In 1849, m order 
to be near his children, he accepted the pastorate of the Wethers- 
field Baptist Church and continued with them until 1862, with the 
exception of three years 1854- 1857, when his duties as Chaplain 
of the Connecticut State prison required his whole time. During 
his active ministry of 41 years he had preached more than 6,300 
sermons aside from addresses, lectures, &c. He was possessed 
of a warm heart, a sympathetic nature and greatly beloved as a 
pastor, a counsellor and a friend. He passed to his heavenly 
home April 7, 1868. Shortly after his ordination, Sept. 22, 1819, 
he married Miss Sarah Sage, daughter of Col. Josiah Sage, of 
Upper Middletown, Conn. She was born Sept. 13, 1795, and re- 
ceived an excellent education. She was baptized by Rev. Freder- 
ick Wightman in 18 18, and entered hear til v into the work of

conscientious reformers, who have left their mark upon the gen- 
eration in which they lived ; he was peculiarly susceptible to the 
wants of all classes who were in distress or who were in any 
sense the objects of persecution. 

His heart was warm and loving towards all men and in return 
all men loved him.. His life was made up of kind deeds and 
noble examples. He was among the very first to espouse the cause 
of the black man in chains. He was an intimate friend of Gerrit 
Smith, Fred. Douglas, John Brown, and many others, who shared 
the hospitality of his pleasant home, and the assistance of his ever 
open pocketbook, in their efforts to which their lives were so 
largely given. He was also especially interested in the great needs 
of temperance reform. He was an active member of the Baptist 
Church for many years until the refusal of his church to take the 
stand upon the slavery question which he thought it ought to 
take. His neighbors loved him and the down trodden of every 
race lost in him a friend whose sincerity was never doubted and 
whose charities were measured only by his ability."*

Turtle, April 22, 1850, (daughter of Abiud Turtle) sister of Milo

ferring the quiet of home life to the strife of public affairs in which 
he never took any conspicuous part. He was of the firm of Brock- 
ett and Turtle, succeeding his father Charles, who was long a well- 
known manufacturer of carriage springs and axles. Mr. Brockett 
enlarged this business, manufacturing carriages and establishing 
repositories at various points in the North and West.

of a superior character, that command prices second only to those 
made by the world famous Brewsters, of New York. This busi- 
ness was incorporated and is still continued. About three years

retirement. He was a member of the Board of County Commis- 
sioners New Haven Co., Selectman of Hamden, and a Director in

the old homestead farm, where he imbibed deeply of the spirit of 
independence and self-reliance which characterized his father. 
During the winter months at the log school house he laid the foun- 
dation of that education which has since ripened into broad and 
comprehensive scholarship. At the age of fifteen he became a 
student in the Western Reserve Seminary, especially preparing 
himself to be a civil engineer, from which he later received the 
degree of Bachelor of Science. In 1856 he went to St. Paul, 
Minn., to practice his profession. The following spring he went 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 120, 

up the Mississippi River to St. Cloud, thence overland to Fair 
Haven, Minn., where he pre-empted 160 acres of land and devoted 
his attention to surveying. 

On Jan. 10, 1858, he married at Fair Haven, and in the follow- 
ing spring returned with his wife to Bristolville, O., where he 
began the study of medicine, graduating from the medical depart- 
ment of the University of Michigan, at Ann Arbor, March 22, 
1862, receiving the degree of Doctor of Medicine. The summer 
following, inspired with loyalty to his country, both natural and 
inherited, he offered his services to the government, then engaged 
in the Civil War. He was assigned to hospital service as surgeon 
at Cincinnati, O., in 1862; then at Columbus, O., in 1863. On the 
22d of April, 1864, l ie received his commission and was mustered 
in, as assistant surgeon of the 1st Regiment of Ohio Volunteer 
Infantry, then detailed as surgeon of the 6th Ohio Battery and 
Bridges Light Artillery, of Chicago, and did active duty at the 
front until the close of the war in 1865. He then returned to 
Bristolville, O., and continued the practice of his profession until 
October, 1883, when he removed to Cleveland, O., which has since 
been his home. While virtually retired from practice, he has still 
retained his interest in the various medical societies with which he 
is connected, namely, the American Medical Association, Ohio 
State Medical Society, The Cuyahoga Medical Society and the 
Society of Physicians and Surgeons. He is largely interested in 
manufacturing and industrial lines, being for the last twenty-five 
years vice-president of the Huber Manufacturing Co., of Marion, 
O., which has an extensive plant for the manufacturing of engines, 
threshing machines, etc. He is also connected in an official 
capacity with other manufacturing concerns. As a member of the 
Republican party, Dr. Brockett is held in high regard by the party 
leaders of the State. In his fraternal relations he is identified 
with the Masonic order, the Odd Fellows, and the Grand Army of 
the Republic, also a member of the military order of the Loyal 
Legion of the United States. 

Dr. Brockett has been three times married, his present wife, 
who was Mrs. Anna M. Whiting, presides over his attractive 
home, the center of distinguished refinement and hospitality.

Linus Pierpont Brockett, A. M., M. D. 7 (Pierpont* Joseph, 5 
Richard* Moses, 3 John, 2 John 1 ), son of Rev. Pierpont and Sarah 
(Sage) Brockett, was born Oct. 16, 1829, at Canton, Conn., and 
died Jan. 13, 1893. He married Dec. 22, 1846, Lucy Maria 
Thacher (daughter of the Rev. Washington Thacher, of Jordan, 
N. Y.), who was born June 25, 1823. She survived her husband 
and resides in Brooklyn. 

Dr. Brockett was educated at Brown University, and graduated 
from the Yale Medical College in 1843. After practicing his pro- 
fession for some years he devoted himself to literary pursuits, was 
a large contributor to "Appleton's American Cyclopedia," one of 
the editors of "Johnson's Universal Cyclopedia," and on the edi- 
torial staff of two foreign encyclopedias. He received the degree 
of A. M. from Williams College. He was the author of some fifty 
different volumes, prominent among which were "Woman's Work 
in the Civil War," published in 1867, and "Men of Our Day," in 
1868. He wrote well, accumulated his material by patient inves- 
tigation, and was exceedingly accurate in all his statements. The 
son of a clergyman, he was led in early life to consecrate his pow- 
ers to Christ, and united with the Baptist Church in Hartford. In 
i860 he removed to Brooklyn, N. Y., where he resided at the time 
of his death. His life was one of wide usefulness in church work, 
in the Washington Avenue and Emmanuel Baptist Churches, of 
Brooklyn ; especially taking an interest in the cause of Missions ; 
in fact few laymen were ever better acquainted with the history, in 
detail, of Foreign Missionary work, not only in his own denomi-

Edward Judson Brockett 7 (Pier pout, 6 Joseph, 5 Richard, 4 
Moses, 3 John, 2 John 1 ), son of Rev. Pierpont and Sarah (Sage) 
Brockett, was born in Essex, Conn., March 7, 1833. Mr. Brockett 
was educated at Bacon Academy, Colchester, Conn., at that time 
one of the leading institutions of learning in New England. At 
the close of his course at Bacon Academy he entered a publishing 
house in Hartford, Conn., where he made the acquaintance of 
many distinguished authors and literary persons. While in Hart- 
ford he published, at his own expense, a volume of poems, by Mrs. 
Lydia H. Sigourney ; a volume of poems by Rev. Arthur Cleve- 
land Coxe, afterward Bishop of Western New York ; a volume on 
the "Formation of Character," by Rev. Thomas M. Clark, after- 
ward Bishop of Rhode Island ; and a volume entitled "Heroes and 
Martyrs of the Missionary Enterprise," by Rev. Lucius E. Smith, 
D. D., of Boston. In the fall of 1856 he was called to New York 
to take charge of the subscription book business of Messrs. Mason 
Brothers, where he made the acquaintance (which ripened into a 
long friendship), of Benson J. Lossing, the historian and author 
of "The Field Book of the Revolution ;" also of James Parton, 
whose "Life of Aaron Burr," gave him such great celebrity, and 
"Fanny Fern" (a sister of N. P. Willis), whose "Fern Leaves" 
had a sale then rarely equalled by any American book. 

In such associations Mr. Brockett acquired the literary tastes 
that, later in life, led him to engage in extensive historical 
research, and finally to the preparing of the Brockett Genealogy, 
which to him was a labor of love. In 1858 he entered the employ 
of Battelle & Renwick, who were engaged in the manufacturing 
of white lead and the importing of chemicals, as bookkeeper and 
confidential clerk. In his connection with that firm he was 



I38 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

assigned to positions of financial responsibility and trust, was 
elected treasurer of, and director in, various corporations in which 
that firm was interested. He was also appointed as executor and 
trustee of several estates. In 1883 he became a member of the 
firm, and on its incorporation became its vice-president and treas- 
urer. When he first came to New York he resided in Brooklyn, 
uniting with the Hanson Place Baptist Church, in which he was 
an active worker for twelve years. 

On the 7th of October, 1862, Mr. Brockett was married to 
Mary Frances Gault, daughter of George Gault* and Elisabeth 
(Biglow) Gault, of Brooklyn. Mrs. Brockett is a woman of fine 
presence, excellent education, great vivacity of temperament, a 
profound Bible student, devoting much of her time to missionary 
and church work, ever seeking to make her home, "The Towers," 
located on Prospect Street (one of the finest avenues of the 
Oranges) an attractive resort for Christian workers. 

In 1869 Mr. Brockett removed to East Orange, N. J., uniting 
with the North Orange Baptist Church, where he was at once 
elected treasurer; in 1880 was elected one of the trustees, and for 
many years has been president of the Board. In 1881 he was 
ordained as a Deacon, and active in the Sunday School. As the 
son of a Baptist minister, he was well informed in regard to all 
the interests of his denomination and his counsel much sought 
for outside of his own church, in State and National organiza- 
tions. For many years he has been a member of the Executive 

*"Deacon George Gault was born in Bow, N. H., December 8, 1803 ; 
married September 4, 1831, to Elizabeth Biglow, at Springfield, Vt. ; 
moved in 1828 to Brooklyn; was baptized in 1831, uniting with the First 
Baptist Church. He was one of the constituent members of the Pierre- 
pont street, the Atlantic street, and Hanson place churches, and contrib- 
uted to the erection of every Baptist church built in Brooklyn previous 
to his removal to Orange, in 1864. He was for very many years one of 
the board of managers of the American and Foreign Bible Society, one 
of the original trustees of Home for Baptist Ministers, successively deacon 
in the Pierrepont street, Atlantic street, and Hanson place churches in 
Brooklyn ; he was also elected deacon in the North Orange church soon 
after his removal to Orange. As one of the early residents of Brooklyn, 
he was identified with many of its early public enterprises. His life was 
of so long duration that he witnessed and took an interest in almost all 
the discoveries and inventions of the nineteenth century; was a guest at 
the banquet given by Cyrus W. Field, at the laying of the first cable, and 
illuminated his house throughout on that occasion." — N. Y. Examiner.

Board of the American Baptist Home Mission Society, and from

tist Missionary Convention for ten years, a member of the "Com- 
mittee of Fifteen," appointed to consider the relation to each other 
of the National Baptist organizations, as well as on various other 
public committees. He has given himself and his time largely to 
the work of the denomination to which he belongs, while as a 
citizen he has not been unmindful of the various philanthropic 
institutions of the Oranges. In politics he is a staunch Repub- 
lican, but has steadily refused any public offices, although repeat- 
edly urged to accept. While of a quiet and retiring disposition, 
he has a sympathetic nature, that leads many, who are in trouble, 
to come to him for advice and comfort.

moved to Davenport, la., where his brother Elam Enos had been 
living for about three years ; they all belonged to the Episcopal 
Church. Thomas' wife was a good singer, and Thomas was good 
at the organ, so the rector was pleased. In 1856 Bishop Lee, of 
Massachusetts, came to Davenport, la., and was glad to meet any 
one from New Haven, Conn., and any one that was a Brockett, as 
his Reverence claimed relationship. 

At this writing, 1904, Mr. Thomas Brockett was still living at 
Fargo, North Dakota, and full of reminiscences of the Brockett 
family.

In 1864 he purchased a home in Canton, Conn., where he lived 
a quiet, useful and happy life, ever ready to do for any one in 
need, generous to a fault, if such a thing is possible. He was truly 
beloved by all who knew him, never speaking ill of any one, or 
crossly to any one. His wife survived him and is living with her 
daughters. 

Politically he was a staunch Republican, but would never take 
office of any kind. He was of a retiring and unassuming nature, 
not caring for public honor, but found his greatest comfort in his 
home life, and in ministering to the happiness of others.

Asahel Brockett 7 (Ransel, 6 Zuar, 5 Samuel* Samuel, 3 Sam- 
uel, 2 John 1 ), son of Ransell and Mabel (Truesdell) Brockett, was 



SEVENTH GENERATION. I47 

born in Wolcott, Conn., Aug. 8, 1820. When he was ten years 
of age his father moved to Bristol. In 1842 Mr. Brockett went to 
Illinois intending to make his residence there, but suffered so much 
from chills and fever that at the end of two years he returned to 
Bristol and remained there until his death, Sept. 26, 1882. March 
24, 1844, he married Marriett Bradley, daughter of Timothy Brad- 
ley, of Bristol. From the Bristol papers we make a few brief ex- 
tracts : 

"Mr. Brockett held many offices of trust and was appointed to 
many positions of responsibility in the town and filled them with 
credit to himself and to the acceptance of the people. 

"For several years, at the time of the War, he was first Select- 
man ; for twelve years was the Assessor. He administered on 
estates of many persons, some involving great responsibility ; was 
a director in the Savings and National Banks from the date of 
their organization. During the last six years of his life he held 
the office of Judge of Probate. 

"Judge Brockett was a man of thoroughly upright character and 
enjoyed the respect and confidence of all who knew him. He had 
occupied the position of Judge of Probate for a number of years 
and acquired a reputation for strict honesty, competent judgment 
and careful methods of which any public officer might well feel 
proud. In politics he was an old time Democrat. The cause of 
his death was typhoid fever." 

"This beloved and exemplary Christian man died Sept. 26, 1882, 
aged 62 years. He united with the Baptist Church in Bristol at 
the age of 22 years ; was early chosen one of its deacons and was 
a valuable member of the church in all matters pertaining to its 
spiritual and temporal interests. He was a man of sound mind, 
quick to discern and of most excellent ability to execute what per- 
tained to the welfare of the church. He was a wise counsellor and 
his opinions and advice were much sought after." 

"The Brockett monument, lately placed in the West cemetery, 
is one of the most beautiful memorials ever furnished by the New 
England Granite Works. The pedestal is about 7 feet by 4 feet 
and 6 feet in height, with a raised tablet bearing the name "Brock- 



I40 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

ett" in raised and polished letters. The crowning beauty of the 
work, however, is a seated statue, of life size, representing- Faith 
holding in the hand a small cross, beautifully executed in Carrara 
marble of unusual purity and fineness from the model of Carl Con- 
rads and is one of his most successful works. The refined grace 
of attitude and beauty of expression with the air of dignity and 
repose pervading the statue form a representation of Christian 
faith needing no interpretation."

111., Jan. 30, 1848. He married Celestia Jane Plumb, who was 
born in 1825, and died March 27, 1878. He composed many stan- 
zas which were published ; one from the poem he composed at his 
mother's death, was as follows : 

"I think how in childhood I knelt by your side, 
While you spoke of the Saviour who for me had died ; 
And bade me rely on His promise alone, 
That is changeless and sure as Eternity's throne."

May 28, 1867. He married Harriet Ives, April 25, 1846, daugh- 
ter of Myron Ives and Sarah Fairchild, and lived at Laporte, Ind. ; 
his mother died at his birth and his father three months later. His 
grandparents (Langdon) took him to their home, but were induced 
to give him up to Mr. Ferdinand Roberts and his wife Chloe, of 
Bristol, Conn. They had just lost an infant child, and while they

SEVENTH GENERATION. 1 59 

ett, was born at Vernon Center, Oneida County, N. Y., Jan. 29, 
1827, and died at Lockport, N. Y., April 4, 1880. He was a 
graduate of Hamilton College in 1851, and classmate of Charles 
Dudley Warner. After graduation Prof. Brockett turned his 
attention to teaching, a profession to which his life was mainly 
devoted. He first taught in the New York Central College at 
Cortland, N. Y., nine years as Professor of Elocution and Ger- 
man ; then at Albany for two years ; then at the Deaf and Dumb 
Institution at Flint, Mich., where he was an instructor for eight 
years. He resigned there in 1873 to be of service to his invalid 
father at Vernon Center, N. Y., who died in 1875, after which 
Prof. Brockett went to Lockport, N. Y. He married Caroline A. 
Campbell, May 6, 1875, who was born July 20, 1816, and who had 
been associated with him in teaching from 1853 to 1859. 

"He was a man of unusual literary ability ; he wrote with 
remarkable facility and during the later years of his life largely 
for the press, editing one department in the Lockport Journal. 
In earlier years he was a pronounced anti-slavery man, and spoke 
and wrote against slavery when to do so was not only a reproach, 
but a dangerous act. In the death of Prof. George L. Brockett 
this community loses a man whose innate qualities and education 
rendered him the peer of the most amiable and cultivated, while 
his private life and Christian character was above reproach."*

Fairfield, N. Y. 

"Mrs. Cole was one of the noblest and best of women. She 
was actively identified with the Baptist Church in Salisbury, and

the right side. She was looked to as the leader in every enterprise

Haven, Conn., April 1, 1845. He received a common school edu- 
cation at the "North Hill District" school during the winter 
months, the balance of his early days being fully occupied with 
helping his father with the farm work. August 9, 1862, when a 
little over seventeen years old, he enlisted in Company K, 15th 
Regiment, Connecticut Volunteers, to serve for three years, under 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 175 

Captain Henry Stiles. His regiment saw considerable hard ser- 
vice during the three years, participating in the battle of Freder- 
icksburg, Siege of Suffolk, and numerous smaller skirmishes and 
raids on the enemy. The regiment was mustered out of service at 
New Berne, N. C, June 27, 1865, shortly after General Lee's sur- 
render, and the following month they were transferred to their 
homes in the North, where the young veteran received his honor- 
able discharge with the well-earned reputation of having been a 
good soldier. The next day after reaching home saw him again 
nard at work on the farm and for twenty-five years he pursued 
this vocation with such intelligent effort that he accumulated con- 
siderable means. In addition to his farming enterprise he built 
up a lucrative business in native lumber, having established as 
early as 1884 a small manufactory. In 1890 he abandoned farm- 
ing, purchased property in Fair Haven, built a new home and a 
large saw mill and devoted his entire time and energy to the lum- 
ber business. In 1898 he retired from active business, turning the 
lumber interests over to his eldest son, since which time he has 
contented himself with looking after his property interests, espe- 
cially his shore property on Branford Harbor, known as "Brock- 
ett's Point," one of the beauty spots on the Connecticut shore, 
where he has a number of cottages and keeps his pleasure boat. 
He married, March 30, 1869, Grace Caroline Clarke, of North- 
ford, Conn. He is a member of Admiral Foote Post, Grand Army 
of the Republic, of New Haven, Conn., and frequently attends 
the encampments in different parts of the country.

22, 1880, she was married to Benjamin Franklin Judd, who was 
a lineal descendant of Thomas Judd. who came, with Rev. Thomas 
Hooker, the real founder of the Colony of Connecticut, in [633, 
from England on account of their Puritan principles, and settled 
in Cambridge, Mass. Mr. Thomas Judd was one of the party that 
took the long tramp from Cambridge, Mass., to that portion of 
the Connecticut Valley now known as Hartford, where Hooker 
established his Church and became the leader and moving spirit 
in the new Colony. 

Mr. Benjamin F. Judd was the son of Rev. Truman O. Judd 
(a Baptist minister of North Haven, Conn.,) and is now of the 
firm of D. B. Judd & Co., extensive dealers in lumber and coal, 
at Bristol, Conn. Mrs. Judd is a lady of charming personality 
and greatly beloved by all who know her. Her only son, who 
died when less than five years of age, was a child of rare beauty, 
and his death so deeply affected the mother as to develop a won- 
derful tenderness of feeling and sympathy for others, which wins 
all hearts.

resides in Cleveland, Ohio. She had one child, born March 20, 
1871, and died in 1872. 

A history of the Brockett family in America would hardly be 
complete if it did not make more mention than a genealogical 
record of Mrs. Ella Wells, whose interest in her ancestry has been 
a marked feature of her life, and whose collection of interesting 
family heirlooms has been an education among the many who have 
been accorded the pleasure of seeing them. Mrs. Wells has gath- 
ered much information regarding the family, dating from its earl- 
iest known sources, although her interest has also led her into 
investigation of all her lines of ancestry. As a Daughter of the 
American Revolution she has proved up eight lines of descent 
from soldiers of the Revolutionary War. 

It is her custom to occasionally hold a reception for the exhibit 
of the family possessions that have descended to her, and these 
have attracted wide attention beyond her own city. Beautiful old 
mahogany furniture, and table silver with a crest, swords of two 
wars, fire-arms of olden time, manuscripts, jewelry, wearing ap- 
parel, books, china, glass and earthenware ; indeed through all 
the range of home belongings these articles have been preserved 
with loving care to show to this generation the furnishings of an 
old time home. 

Perhaps the most wonderful among all these interesting things 
is a little box made of a cherry pit, carved, and with a little ivory 
stopper, in which were twelve tiny silver spoons, showing under

a magnifying glass that they are really spoons and not merely 
flat pieces of silver shaped like a spoon.

ville, N. Y., Albany, N. Y., and Little Falls, N. Y. In former 
years he was connected with the Comptroller's office and the State 
Forest Commission, of which he was for several years the chief 
engineer. He was the compiler of the large Adirondack map 
which is now used in the State Departments at Albany and also 
the author of several other compilations on the Adirondack 
regions. He is an active member of the Herkimer County Histor- 
ical Society and has read numerous papers before that body. His 
times of leisure he devotes largely to historical and genealogical 
researches. 

Hans Otto Bernhard Von Koetteritz was born on Sept. 14, 
1853, in East Prussia, Germany, and coming from a military fam- 
ily, was brought up in the Corps of Cadets of Prussia, graduat- 
ing at the age of seventeen from the Berlin School of Cadets and 
taking part as an ensign in the very last part of the Franco-Prus- 
sian War. He became a Second Lieutenant in 1872 and served as 
such until the year 1879, when he was honorably discharged with 
the rank of First Lieutenant. During his military career he was 
connected with the Geodetic Surveys of Alsace-Lorraine, and he 
also made personally all the surveys of the battlefields of Eastern 
France, and of Alsace-Lorraine, showing the graves of the fallen 
soldiers of both armies, a work which occupied his time for sev- 
eral years. 

While at military school he was appointed page to the Court of 
Prince Albrecht, the brother of the late Emperor William, and 
served in such duties for nearly two years. After the termination 
of this service the Prince presented him with a fine court sword 
bearing the name of the donor on its Denmark blade. 

The father of Mr. Koetteritz was Otto Von Koetteritz, late 
Captain in the Royal Prussian Brigade of the Artillery of the 
Guard, and his mother was the late Emily Dorothea Hoepner. His 
grandfather was Ernst Von Koetteritz, who served first as an 
officer in the Prussian army, but who took, after the great German 
defeat at Jena and the subsequent reduction of that army, Rus- 
sian service, and died as Colonel of the Engineers in 1819, in 
Russia. His grandmother was Julie Eleanor de Montferrin,

whose father and mother died under the guillotine during the 
French Revolution. Her father, Pierre Francois de Montferrin, 
was a captain in the French army under Rochambeau during the 
American Revolution. The branch of Mr. Koetteritz traces the 
Koetteritz line clearly to the year 1412; the general family history 
traces back to the time of the Crusades.

Walter Dudley Brockett 9 (William E., 8 William A., 7 Eli* 
Isaiah, 5 John 4 Moses? John, 2 John 1 ), eldest son of William Elf red 
and Grace Caroline (Clarke) Brockett, was born on his father's 
farm in North Haven, Conn., Dec. 18, 1869, and received his early 
education at the North Hill District School, supplemented by one 
year at Gile's Grammar School in New Haven. From his earliest 
recollections, he has been his father's right-hand man, actively par- 
ticipating in all the work of the farm and the building up of the 
timber business, from the early age of fifteen taking full charge 
of the mill. Naturally energetic and endowed with an unusually 
bright mind, it was only natural that under the splendid example 
and thorough training given him by his father, he should develop 
into the best timber man in the State and when, in 1898, his father 
turned the business over to him, he was fully prepared to handle it

to the best advantage. He has very largely increased its scope and 
territory, and numbers among his customers most of the large cor- 
porate interests of Southern New England, who are well aware of 
the fact that there is no job in his line too big for him to tackle. 

He is an ardent sportsman, being especially fond of horses, dogs 
and guns and keeps himself well supplied with the best of its kind. 
Possessed of a pleasing personality, he is deservedly popular with 
his host of friends. He was married June 20, 1896, to Minnie 
Belle Kay, a beautiful and talented young lady, of New Haven, 
who was the mother of three children. His wife met her death 
by accident January 9. 1903, being thrown from her carriage and 
instantly killed.

Frank Shelton Brockett 9 (William E.% William A., 1 Eli, 6 
Isaiah, 5 John* Moses, 2 John, 2 John 1 ), second sen of William El- 
fred and Grace Caroline (Clarke) Brockett, was born on his fath- 
er's farm in North Haven, Conn., Sept. 25, 187 1, and his early 
life and education was similar to that of his brothers. In Febru- 
ary, 1889, he entered the employ of Price, Lee & Co., Publishers, 
of New Haven, where he laid the foundation for his future busi- 
ness success. In November, 1890, he emigrated to Western Penn- 
sylvania and took a position as office clerk with a large plate glass 
manufacturing concern, at Charleroi, Pa., and was shortly after 
promoted to the position of paymaster. In May, 1893, he resigned 
and took a position with the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company, at 
Creighton, Pa., as private secretary to the President, remaining 
with that company seven years and filling subsequently the posi- 
tions of purchasing agent, and manager of two of their largest 
plants, ending with one year in their New York City branch. In 
May, 1900, he resigned to take the contract of designing and build- 
ing at Hite, Pa., one of the largest plate glass plants in the United 
States. Upon completion of this work he went abroad to take a

in England, France and Belgium and upon his return home, in 
due time organized the Colonial Plate Glass Company at Parkers- 
burg, W. Va., of which he is secretary and treasurer. 

While in England, he visited the famous Brockett Hall, at Hat- 
field, in Hertfordshire, and other places connected with the early 
history of the Brockett family in England. He was married May

EDWIN F. BROCKETT. 

One after the other, and all within the space of three months, have the 
three Brockett brothers died almost without warning. A little over a 
year ago George Brockett dropped dead and last fall his brother, Loyal, met 
a similar fate while engaged at work at the residence of Captain John 
Hall. At 11 o'clock yesterday forenoon the third brother, Edwin L. 
Brockett, dropped dead at his home, 105 Harvey street, on the west side of 
Dry Run. He had been in ill health for about eighteen months, having 
experienced an attack of la grippe and pneumonia from which he did not 
wholly recover. He had been reared to habits of industry and was suc- 
cessfully engaged as a builder and contractor and even though physically 
indisposed he could not bear to remain in idleness. He continued to work, 
whenever he was able, up to a short time ago. Yesterday morning he was 
at home and did not appear to be any worse than usual, when suddenly 
he gave a gasp and tottered into the arms of his wife. She led him to the 
bed and as soon as he lay down his spirit took its everlasting flight. 

Mr. Brockett was born and raised in Peoria County, and at the time 
of his death was 46 years of age. He was a prominent member of Colum- 
bia Lodge, Order of Odd Fellows, who will have charge of the funeral 
services, to be announced later. He was highly esteemed by a wide circle 
of friends who deeply regret his sudden death. He is survived by his 
wife, and one daughter, Iona, aged 17 years. 

Coroner Harper was notified of Mr. Brockett's death and held an inquest 
this morning, with a finding of death from natural causes. — Peoria, III.,

THE SOUTHERN BKOCKETTS. 



While this volume only purports to give the descendants of John 
Brockett, who came to this country from England in 1637, in jus- 
tice to several families of the same name residing in the Southern 
States, we would make mention of the fact that one hundred and 
forty-seven years later, namely, in 1784, Robert Brockett emi- 
grated from Lanarkshire, Scotland, to this country and settled at 
Alexandria, Va. The house which he erected is now occupied by 
Mr. Albert D. Brockett one of his descendants who has remodelled 
it, still preserving the same general outlines of its architecture. 
Mr. A. D. Brockett has been greatly interested in the history of 
this branch of the Brockett family, having a complete record of it 
from 1784 to 1871. Mrs. A. D. Brockett has been prominent 
among the Daughters of the American Revolution, which she en- 
tered on the records of seven of her ancestors, and was Vice-Pres- 
ident General of the National Society, D. A. R., in charge of 
organization in 1898. 

The descendants of Robert Brockett are now living mainly in 
Virginia and Georgia.

EXPLANATION OF ARMORIAL BEARINGS. 



IN GENERAL. 

Arms, so called because originally displayed upon defensive 
armor. 

Coats of Arms, because embroidered upon the coat worn over 
the armor. 

William the Conqueror did not use these, and it is uncertain 
when they were first introduced into England, but in the 13th 
Century they came rapidly into use, and bannerets showing the 
family coat of arms were often carried by their retainers. In the 
infancy of heraldry every knight assumed whatever arms he chose, 
but the Crusades, by bringing together soldiers of different 
nations, tended to produce a certain assimilation in their herald- 
ries, all of which are now under the direction of the Heralds Col- 
lege at London. 

The Shield, as the most obvious piece, was that upon which 
arms were first displayed. 

The Cross was generally represented only on the Arms of 
those whose ancestors were in the Crusades. 

The Stag appears in the roll of Edward II. 

When an animal is crowned royally or ducally he is called 
gorged. 

The Helmet indicates the rank of the wearer. When the Visor 
is raised, showing six bars, all of gold, it means the Royal Family ; 
five steel bars means Dukes or Marquises; four silver bars, the 
lesser Nobles ; no bars, the Knights or Barons. 

The Crest was the ornament of the head piece and afforded 
protection against a blow. Up to 1301 only three crests had been 
used. 

The Lambrequin, or Mantling. — With the Crest is usually 
combined some drapery flowing down on each side of the Shield. 



224 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

Its origin was the Mantle, or cloak, worn by the bearer of the 
Shield. 

The Motto was originally the war cry of the bearer. It is a 
brief sentence, or a single word, frequently breathing some pious 
sentiment or vigorous thought, often alluding to the Arms, the 
Name, or the Crest. 

THE BROCKETT ARMS. 

The Coat of Arms, pure and simple, of the English Brocketts, 
is a shield of gold, with a black cross upon it as in Fig. I, de- 
scribed in Heraldry — Or (gold), a cross patonce (three points to 
each arm of the cross slightly curved), Sa (sable or black). 

The Crest was a young deer, not over two years old, called a 
Brocket, lying down, but in the act of rising, with one foot 
extended, as in Fig. II., described as a stag lodged. 

Fig. III. represents the armorial bearings of the Brocketts of 
Spains Hall, Ongar, Co. Essex, England, which, in addition to the 
Coat of Arms and Crest mentioned above, has the "Brocket" rest- 
ing upon a sable cushion, lined with gold, and also a golden crown 
encircling his neck (ducally gorged), all of which is above a 
Helmet, with the Visor lifted, showing five bars inclining to a 
profile. In heraldery this form of Helmet is described as belong- 
ing to the Nobility. 

The Colored Plate contains the Armorial Bearings of Sir 
John Brockett of Brockett Hall, in the County of Herts, England. 
This is nearly the same as that of the Brocketts of Spains Hall, 
but has a different helmet with the Visor closed. It also has a 
rope around the neck of the stag, representing the office of High 
Sheriff. The Motto, Crux mea Lux (the Cross my light) indi- 
cated, as did the Coat of Arms, the family connection with the 
Crusades, and has been highly esteemed by all branches of the 
family.

THE ENGLISH BROCKETTS. 



While the purpose of this book is to record the descendants, 
in America, of John Brockett, the first of the name who settled in 
this country ; and while the exact relationship of this John Brock- 
ett to Sir John Brockett, of Brockett Hall, Hertfordshire, Eng- 
land, is yet undetermined, the editor has been requested to pub- 
lish some of the information in regard to the English Brccketts 
which has been already obtained ; believing that other members 
of the family will continue the investigation and complete the line 
in unbroken succession from A. D., 1201, to the present time. 

In furtherance of this plan Mr. Chas. A. Brockett, of Kansas 
City, procured from the Heralds College, in London, the Armorial 
Bearings which are so finely presented in this volume. 

He also secured the portrait of one of the earlier Knights — 
Sir John Brockett, who died 1558; and the two views of Brockett 
Hall, a place of historic interest and still a favorite resort of dis- 
tinguished individuals. 

These have been reproduced for this work, adding greatly to 

its value. 

Famous Persons Who Lived and Died in Brockett Hall. 

At Brocket Hall, Herts, which the visit of the Prince and Princess of 
Wales brings into notice, are to be found relics not only of the two Prime 
Ministers — Melbourne and Palmerston — who died within its walls, but of 
ladies whose names are famous in history, in fiction and in song. 

Lady Caroline Lamb, from Brocket Hall, dated many of her "Brocket" 
letters to Lord Byron, says the London Chronicle. And her husband— sure- 
ly the most magnanimous of a magnanimous class — dated from Brocket 
those letters to Mrs. Norton which were not saved by their frigidity from 
figuring in a superfluous divorce trial. But another lady, the first Lady Mel- 
bourne, daughter of Sir Ralph Milbanke, and daughter-in-law of the Sir 
Matthew Lamb, who bought Brocket from the Winningtons, has left sou- 
venirs of herself — two portraits painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds, in one of 
which she appears in lonely beauty, and in the other is fondling her child— 
a group engraved under the title of "Maternal Affection." 

At Brocket she consoled herself for absence from the festive town 
house in Piccadilly by improvements and decorations, of which Lord and 
Lady Mount Stephen have the advantage to-day. The ceilings were cov-

ered with elaborate designs in color; and then, to use an expression current 
at that pre-Whistlerian era, "the walls, being hung with pictures, came to 
be hung with thoughts." — Newark Ne7vs, Feb. 17, 1904. 

London, Dec. 24, 1903. — Britain's metropolis presents the deserted 
appearance usual on the eve of Christmas. King Edward, Queen Alexan- 
dra, the Prince and Princess of Wales and the members of the court have 
gone to the country. 

Ambassador Choate and his family are at Rrocket Hall, Hatfield, Hert-

Lord Mount-Stephen. — N. Y. Tribune, Dec. 25, 1903. 

"The Pedigree of Brockett," published in Gateshead, Eng- 
land, in i860, tracing the family lines from A. D., 1201 to 1834, 
was kindly furnished by Mrs. D. M. Wells, of Cleveland, and will 
be found in the form of a Chart at the end of this book. 
Extensive researches were also made by Mr. F. S. Brockett, of 
Parkersburg, W. Va. 

The name of Brocket appears very early in the records of 
English History. It is of Saxon origin, and doubtless they came 
to England with the Saxons in the 7th century. 

From English County Histories we have gleaned the follow- 
ing accounts of this family, which, though but fragments, are suf- 
ficient to show the standing, character and associations of the fam- 
ily, during some three hundred years antecedent to the settlement 
of New England. 

We find that some of that name were with the Crusaders in 
the days of Richard the Lion-hearted, 1 189-91, and took at that 
time for their motto, "Crux mea Lux." — The Cross my light, 
which has been ever since retained in the family Coat of Arms 
and which of itself, shows that some of their ancestors were 
engaged in the crusades. 

In the Church Records of Gravely and Chisfield are men- 
tioned, with dates, the following: Lords of the Manors* 

*This term "Manor" began to be used in England after the Norman 
Conquest. A Manor consisted of two parts : First, the home-estate, which 
the lord held in his own hands, and upon which his house was built ; second, 
the "outland," which was held by tenants for rent or for service of the lord; 
these tenants generally lived by agriculture. 

In the 13th century the lord of the Manor was often only three de- 
grees removed in the feudal scale from the King. Moreover, a lord might 
hold several Manors. Legislation has now put such checks upon the devel- 
opment of the manorial system that it has declined to a mere shadow. 

No new Manors have been created in England since this legislation, 
but many old Manors still exist. — International Encyclopedia.

By reference to the Chart of the English Brocketts at the 
close of this volume it will be noticed that Edward Broket, about 
the year 1300, was living in Yorkshire, and his descendants con- 
tinued to live there. One of them, Sir Thomas Broket, who was 
Knighted by King Henry 6th, built the first Brocket Hall at 
Yorkshire. He died in 1435. 

His coat of arms was the sable cross patonce ,on a field of 
gold, and the crest a stag lodged, ducally gorged and lined, or., 
the same as used by Sir John Brockett, of Wheathamstead, a 
century later. 

"The site of Broket Hall, in Yorkshire, an area of nearly two 
acres, lies east of the present village of Appleton. Although no 
buildings remain, the moat, which had surrounded the house, is 
distinctly visible, Brocket Wood, about 10 acres, is a quarter of a 
mile distant from Brocket Hall. This estate became the property 
of Sir William Milner, Bart." 

His son, Sir Thomas, of Broket Hall, born about 1405, was 
a member of Parliament for the County of Herts, in 1435. He 
married Elizabeth, daughter of William Ashe, of Manor of Alm- 
shoebury, and through this marriage came into the possession 
of the Symonds Hyde Estate, and built Brockett Hall at Wheat- 
hamstead. 

Thomas and his wife, Elizabeth, were the Patrons of the Rec- 
tory of Graveley from June 7, 1432, until his death in 1477, when, 
having no children, his son and heir, Edward Brocket, succeeded 
him. Elizabeth Ashe, his wife, died January 12th, 1482. 

This Edward had a son, Robert, who was buried in the 
Church of St. Margaret (which was erected as early as 1100.) 

In the middle aisle lies a gray marble before the pulpit with 
this inscription on brass, "Hie Jacet Robertus Brocket generosus 
qui obiit decimo die Junii 1569. Etat suae 49." 

This Edward was the father of the first John Brocket, 



228 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

of Wheathamstead, who married Lucy, daughter of John Pulter, 
of Hitchen. He was Sheriff of Herts and Essex 1507-8, Patron of 
Rectory of Graveley 15 17. 

His son, John Brocket, of Wheathamstead, married Dorothy, 
daughter of H. Hammond, of Hoo. He was Sheriff of Herts and 
Essex 1 53 1. 

The Sheriff is one of the most ancient and honorable officers known 
to the English law. In England the Sheriffs of all the counties, with very 
few exceptions, were appointed by the Crown, and were men of high rank 
and great power in the realm. In the early English history the Sheriff was 
distinctly a royal officer appointed by the King each year as the chief execu- 
tive officer of the county, exercising judicial authority. — Johnson's Cyc. 

His son, Sir John Brocket, who died in 1558, was Knighted 
by King Edward 6th, and occupied Brockett Hall. He married 
Margaret, daughter and sole heir of Win. Benstede. His por- 
trait, taken from the "Copper Plate Magazine," published in 1792, 
will be found in this volume. 

His name often appears in "Cussans History" in connection 
with public affairs in Hertfordshire. In a letter of Lord Burgh- 
ley, we find that the soldiers from his estate were "90 of the 
likelyest men and best furnished ever sent out of Hertfordshire, 
and John Brockett gave each four shillings for gate money when 
they left amounting to eighteen pounds sterling." 

His son, the second Sir John Brocket, was born in 1538, and 
succeeded to Brockett Hall ; was a member of Parliament in 1572 
and 1584; was Knighted in 1577 by Queen Elizabeth; was High 
Sheriff of Herts 1566 to 1581, died in 1598, and was buried in the 
Brocket Chapel of the Parish Church of Bishops Hatfield, which 
is dedicated to St. Ethelreda and is situated at the east end of the 
town, just within the gates of the old palace. 

"The South Chancel Aisle, or Brocket Chapel, is separated from the 
chancel by two handsome decorated gothic arches. In it is a large altar 
tomb, on which are two pillars supporting a flat cover surmounted by a 
quartered shield of Brocket, impaled with Ashe, Benstede and Cromwell. 

"In the Bishop's Church at Hatfield is a monument to the Earl of 
Salisbury. The Marquess of Salisbury finding this church in quite a dilapi- 
dated condition restored it at her own expense. The late Mr. Wynn Ellis 
restored the Brocket Chapel in 1872. On the floor of the church, on either 
side, are two effigies, brought hither from the Brocket Chapel, when the 
church was restored. That on the north side is of great antiquity and well 
worthy of some more befitting place, the figure is four feet long and carved 
in low relief, about an inch in height and represents a man in armour. The

Of Brocket! Hall, Herts.

execution is rude and cannot be later than 1200. The whole of the figure, 
from the throat to the knees, is covered with a shield. The person repre- 
sented wears a barrel-shaped helmet and in his right hand, concealed be- 
neath the shield, he holds erect a sword, the top of which alone remains. 
The legs are very diminutive. All the details of the armour have been com- 
pletely effaced by the 'clouted shoon' of generations passing over it." — 
Cussans Hist. 

This was doubtless one of the early Brockett ancestors as it was trans- 
ferred from the Brocket Chapel to the Aisle of the church and appears 
in the record in connection with the account of the monuments in Brocket 
Chapel. 

His helmet hung over his tomb and the family crests and 
coats of arms on the shield were still perfectly legible March 12, 
1902. 

He married 1st Helen Lytton, daughter and co-heir of Sir 
Robert Lytton, Knight ; married 2nd Elizabeth Moore, daughter 
and co-heir of Roger Moore, of Burcester, Co. Oxen, and widow 
of Gabriel Fowler, of Lylesworth, Co. Bedford. 

Several of these Brockets either built churches on their own 
estates, or made large endowments of churches in the vicinity, 
as in several different churches there were chapels or places of 
burial named for them, and of which they were the patrons. 

In addition to the St. Ethelreda mentioned above, which con- 
tains several monumental memorials of the family, we find in 
Wheathamstead Church — in the south transept, an altar tomb, 
upon which are the recumbent figures of a Knight and his wife, 
beautifully carved in marble, or in alabaster, and one richly gilded 
head of male figure bare and resting on his helmet. 

Hair and beard is long, 3 rings on each hand. Around his 
neck are two massive chains, from one of which depends a cross 
plate as a jewel. (Insignia of the Knight of the Garter.) 

He is habited in plate armor with a Hauberk of mail under- 
neath, visible around the throat and beneath the tuilles and tassets 
which protect his thighs. 

An immense sword lies by his side. His feet encased in sol- 
erets rest upon a Lion.* 

*The English "Notes and Queries" discusses the subject of figures of 
animals on old tombs and says, "These figures are usually a Lion at the feet 
of a man, and a Dog at the feet of a woman. They are generally found 
on tombs previous to 1400, and less frequently after that date. The Lion 
is supposed to symbolize the strength, courage and generosity of man, and 
the Dog the fidelity and affection of woman. The figures are often found on 
the tombs of the Crusaders." The statue of Richard Ceour de Lion, at 
Rouen, France, where he was buried, has his feet resting upon a Lion. 



23O THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY. 

Round the verge of his tomb, in raised letters of stone, is 
the inscription, "Here lyeth the bodyes of Sir John Brocket 
Knyghte, and Dame Margaret, his wife, daughter and heir of 
William Benstede, Esq., ye which John departyd this world ye 
24th of March in ye yere of our Lord God, 1558, and ye sade 
Dame Margaret departyd this worlde ye day of — in ye yere of 
our Lord God, 1560, which Sir John and Dame Margaret had is- 
sue ten sonnes and three daughters." 

The Brocket family seem to have had a porch or other spec- 
ial burial place in Bolton-Percy Church, as appears from the fol- 
fowing entry in the Register Book : — "Lord Fairfax, Baron of 
Cameron, dyed at Denton, March ye 13th, and brought to the par- 
ish church of Bolton Percy, and there buried in the Brockett 
Queire, within the said church, the 20th day of the same, 1547." 

In the Histories of Hertfordshire we find reference to several 
other Manors owned by the Brocketts, viz. : 

"Manor of Almeshoebury. On the death of Wm. Ashe 
the Manor came to his daughter, Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Broc- 
ket. In Oct., 1477, Thomas Brocket died seized, with Elizabeth 
his wife, of this Manor, held of Edward Langford by the service 
of a red rose, with remainder to Edward Brocket, his brother, 
then of the age of 50 and upward. This continued in the family 
of Brocket till 1600 when it came to Sir Richard Spencer, of 
Offley, on his marriage with Helen, dau. and co-heir of Sir John 
Brocket." 

"Manor of Letchworth. By an inquisition Nov. 7, 1474, 
it was found that Sir Nicholas Barrington inherited this Manor. 
His wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Brockett, of Broc- 
kett Hall. They had issue John (and six daughters) who, on ar- 
riving at his majority, succeeded to the possession of this Manor." 

"Manor of Rothamsted, formerly in family of Cressey, 
whose daughter, Elizabeth, married Edmund Bardolf, who had a 
son, Richard Bardolf, who married Mary, daughter of Edward 
Brockett, and succeeded to this Estate." 

"The Manor of Ayot St. Lawrence, a small village about 
two miles N. E. of Wheathamstead, and six miles from Hatfield, 



THE ENGLISH BROCKETTS. 23 1 

the nearest of the King's houses, was granted to John Brockett 
in the 35th year of the reign of King Henry VIII." 

"The Manor of Ayot St. Peter, a village about eight miles 
N. W. of Hertford passed from John Brockett to the Reades." 

"The Manor of Offley Magna, which formed part of the 
possession of the King, at the time of the Doomsday Book*, in 
1577, came into the possession of Sir Richard Spencer, Knight, 
who married Helen, daughter of Sir John Brocket, of Hatfield, 
Knight. His eldest son succeeded him, but died without male 
issue, and the Manor came to his brother, Sir Brocket Spencer. 
In 1668 Sir Richard Spencer inherited it on the death of his 
father. In the church, at Offley, of St. Mary Magdalen is a slab 
— Sir Richard Spencer, Bart., died Nov., 1624; also Dame Helen, 
his wife, dau. of Sir John Brocket, who died May 12, 1614." 

"The Manor of Mandlesden, (came at the time of the con- 
quest to King William, see Doomsday Record) succeeded, through 
some obscurity, to Sir Robert Lytton, who died without male issue, 
and his daughter and co-heir, Helen, brought this Manor to Sir 
John Brockett, of Hatfield, Knight, by whom she had 5 daughters, 
Mary, the youngest, to whom this Manor came, was married to 
Thomas Reade, of Brocket Hall. 

Spain's hall. 

This estate, located at Ongar, Essex, took its name from 
Hervey de Spain, to whom it anciently belonged. 

In 1285 Wm. de Monchensy died possessed of this Manor, 
William, his son and heir, afterward sold it to John Brockett, Esq., 
from whom it passed to Wm. Brocket, Esq., and his heirs. 

William Brocket's daughter, Mary, succeeded to this estate 
and married Stanes Chamberlain, Esq., of the Ryes, Sussex. 

Their eldest son, Stanes Brocket Chamberlain, born 1782, as- 
sumed the name and arms of his maternal ancestor, and was 
known as Stanes Brocket Brocket. Mr. Brocket was called to the

Bar at the Middle Temple in 1812, was J. P. & D. L. for Essex, 
High Sheriff 1844, and a Bencher of the Middle Temple from 
Spain's Hall, Ongar. 

He married Elizabeth, daughter of Isaac Rutton, Esq., of 
Ospringe, Kent, and widow of John Woolett, Esq., of Rye, Sus- 
sex, and by her (who died 1864) had 1st Stanes Brocket, died un-

6th, Thermuthis Brocket, died unmarried May 13th, 1852. 

Mary married in 1866 Charles Pix Meryon, Esq., of Rye, 
Sussex, who died 1879. As the only surviving child and heir of 
Stanes Brocket, on the death of her sister, Elizabeth, she succeed- 
ed to the Estate of Spain's Hall, Ongar, Essex, and assumed by 
Royal License, March 18, 1896, the name and arms of Brocket 
pursuant to the will of her late father. Arms — Or, a cross patonce, 
Sa. Crest — A Stag lodged Sa. ducally gorged, and lined ; which 
appears as No. 3 in the Armorial Bearings of this volume, and 
which is now used by her. Seats — Spain's Hall, Ongar, Essex. 
Rye, Sussex. 

Brocket Hall, was located at Wheathamstead, County 
Herts, originally described in the "Doomsday Book" as "Watam- 
stede," which, in 13 12, was the meeting place of the Barons in 
their war against Edward 2d. This estate adjoined Hatfield, 
which has been noted in history, where in the 12th century the 
famous Ely Episcopal Palace was erected, which was acquired 
by Henry 8th. Edward VI. and Queen Elizabeth were both called 
to the throne while residents of the palace. James I also resided 
here and it was one of the prisons of Charles I. 

Brocket Hall derived its name from the family of Brocket, 
its former possessors, and who occupied it for more than 100 
years. So honored was the name that none of its distinguished 
owners of other names and later years have desired to change its 
title. It was a princely mansion standing in a finely timbered and 
undulating park of about 500 acres, on a very elevated site, com- 
manding beautiful views of surrounding towns and magnificent 



THE ENGLISH BROCKETTS. 233 

residences. The River Lee, one of the tributaries of the Thames, 
flows through its grounds. 

On the death of Sir John Brocket in 1598, without male is- 
sue, his estates were divided among his daughters — Margaret, wife 
of Sir John Cutts ; Anne, wife of Sir Alexander Cave ; Elizabeth, 
wife of George Carleton ; Helen, wife of Sir Richard Spencer ; 
Mary, wife of Sir Thomas Reade, and Frances, wife of Dudley, 
Third Lord North. 

On a partition being made, the Brockett Hall Estate came to 
Mary, the fifth daughter, who conveyed it in marriage to Sir 
Thomas Reade, of Barton, County Berks, Knight. 

Sir James Reade, Baronet, his grandson, to whom Brockett 
Hall descended, died in Oct., 1701, leaving five daughters — Dor- 
othy, Anne, Love, Mary and Susan. This estate came to Love, 
who, in 1719, was married to Thomas Winnington, Esq., of Stan- 
ford, County Worcester, who died, possessed -of it, in April, 1746. 
It was shortly afterwards sold to Matthew Lamb, Esq., who was 
created Baron, Jan. 4, 1755, and was succeeded in 1768 by his son, 
Sir Peniston Lamb, who, in 1776, was created Baron, and in 
1780 Viscount Melbourne, of the Kingdom of Ireland, and by 
patent in 1815 Baron Melbourne, of Melbourne, in the County of 
Derby. He died July 22, 1828, leaving issue by Elizabeth, his 
wife, only daughter of Sir Ralph Milbank, Bart., William, Second 
Viscount Melbourne; Frederick James, George and Emily Mary. 
William, in an able manner, conducted public affairs from 1834 
to 1841, dying in 1848 without surviving issue. His brother, 
Frederick James, third and last Lord Melbourne, succeeded to 
his estate. 

The Honorable Emily Mary Lamb (his sister) Viscountess 
Palmerston, the only remaining issue of the First Viscount Mel- 
bourne, succeeded to the family estates in Hertfordshire and Der- 
byshire. In 1805 she was married to Peter Leopold, Fifth Earl 
Cowper, after whose death, in 1737, she became wife of the late 
Lord Palmerston, whom she survived four years. On the death 
of Lady Palmerston, Brockett Hall came to the Right Hon. Fran- 
cis Thomas DeGray, Cowper, K. G., Seventh Earl Cowper. Both 
Lord and Lady Palmerston died at Brockett Hall. 



234 THE BROCKETT GENEALOGY 

Sir Matthew Lamb pulled down the old house of the Broc- 
kets and built the present mansion on its site from designs of 
James Paine. The exterior cannot boast of any architectural 
beauty, the building being but a square pile of brick pierced for 
windows. All the attention of the architect was given to the 
interior. The rooms are lofty and well proportioned, and his 
ability is seen in the "Principal Staircase and Ballroom." The 
ceilings are decorated by the pencils of Mortimer and Wheatley. 
He constructed a very pretty lake in front of the Hall by widening 
the River Lee, which intersects the park. An artificial waterfall 
near its southern extremity is spanned by a handsome stone bridge 
of three arches, over which the road leading to the principal 
entrance to the mansion is carried. During the early part of the 
nineteenth century Brockett Park was known as a fashionable 
race course, where the first Lord Melbourne for several successive 
years entertained the Prince Regent and other patrons of the 
turf.* 

The following description of Brocket Hall is taken from the 
"Copper Plate Magazine," published in London in 1792: 

Brocket Hall, the elegant and magnificent seat of Lord 
Viscount Melbourne, is situated in a most delightful park, between 
Hatfield and Welwyn, in Hertfordshire, about twenty-two miles 
from London. It stands on a very elevated spot, and commands 
many extensive and beautiful views of the neighboring towns and 
gentlemen's seats; among which, that of Hatfield House, the 
princely mansion of the Marquis of Salisbury, is not the least 
striking. The park and ancient edifice, which formerly belonged 
to the Brockets, came into the family of the present noble pos- 
sessor by purchase, and to his Lordship in succession. 

The mansion has been newly erected; being begun by the 
late Lord Melbourne, and finished by his present Lordship about 
twenty years since, who has made prodigious improvements in the 
park, which is one of the most elegantly picturesque in the 
kingdom. 

Mr. Payne was the architect; and the beautiful bridge over 
the spacious sheet of water which enriches the enchanting scenery

is executed by the same ingenious gentleman. The water and out- 
grounds were laid out and disposed by. Mr. Wood, of Essex. 

The whole, both internally and externally, is completed in 
a style of magnificence and elegance truly exquisite, and highly 
to the honour of his Lordship's taste and liberality. 

There are many valuable paintings, by the first masters ; 
among the rest, a wonderful large and fine picture by Teniers ; and 
Sir Joshua Reynolds' noble painting of the Prince of Wales and a 
horse, exhibited some years ago, with so much eclat, at the Royal 
Academy, Somerset Place.
