About Elizabeth Brooks

Disputed Parents

Her maiden name should be changed to Unknown and her parents detached and NN parents locked on.

Tingley, Raymon Meyers. Some Ancestral Lines, p. 371-2 fraudulently created records to state that Elizabeth was daughter of Thomas Simmons (Symonds) of Plymouth who in turn married Elziabeth Nash and that Thomas was son of Moses. The supposed family of Thomas Symmonds of Plymouth is a known fraud. See Anderson's Great Migration Begins 1790 and 1683 and Great Migration 2:1:1323-4.

Thomas Symonds of Plymouth was a real person but only three records exist for him: a court case, a land transfer and a right to bear arms see:

Records of the Colony of New Plymouth in New England , Nathaniel B. Shurtleff and David Pulsifer, eds., 12 volumes in 10 (Boston 1855 – 1861) 2:33. 8:191, 12:217-18

No record of a family for him exists at all.

Secondly Thomas Symmonds of Plymouth who arrived in 1633 (above) is being conflated with Thomas Symmonds of Braintree who did arrive until 1638 (for the later see [NEHGR 3:248; Lechford 351; BTR 1:49; MBCR 1:282]
