About Richard Brockway

Richard Brockway, 3rd child of William Brockway (of Brockway's Ferry) and Elizabeth Wolterton, was b. at Lyme, Conn., on Sept 11,1699; married, probably, with DEBORAH REED. He settled near the First Church in Lyme, and was probably a member of it, but the loss of the early records makes the proof difficult. Mr. Charles Hallam Brockway (see pg 57..son of Sylvester Brockway 1767, son of Ebenezer 1731, son of John 1697 Brockway and Elizabeth BANNING...who was this Richard's brother) provided the names of Richard's children, as they are given. Richard Brockway was one of the signers of the Lyme North Quarter Paper of Dec. 7,1724.

Children were: Richard (1730) an Ezra (1732).

Note: Per Brockway: There is a possibility that Richard had a 2nd wife BRIDGET since a gravestone at Brockway's Ferry seems to show that Thomas Brockway, son of Capt. Richard and Mrs. Bridget Brockway, died Sept. 16,1742, in his third year. A pair of small stones, near those of Thomas, bear no inscription except R.B. and may mark the grave of another child of Richard Brockway.
