Origin of BROOKS Surname

This is an ancient surname of Germanic (Anglo-Saxon) and Olde English pre 7th century origins. Widely recorded in Germany, where it is sometimes found with the aristocratic "von", England, Scotland and Ireland, it has several possible origins. The name can be residential from one of the many places called Brook or Broke both in England and Germany, or it can be a topographical for somebody who lived by a 'broc'. In Germany this appears to refer to a rocky area but in Britain, it is clearly associated with water, being either a stream or an area of land which flooded in winter time. The very earliest surviving registers are English, and examples from these include what are clearly residential names,William de la Broke of the county of Surrey in the year1208; and Emma de Brokes in Suffolk in 1220. The first recording in Germany is probably that of Johann Broker of Kiel in 1367, and in Scotland Thomas Bruke, a burgess of Aberdeen, in 1483, where the namne has some popularity. Other recordings include Johann Brokes of Lubeck, germany in 1588, and Catherine Brooks, who married Nicholas Thompson by civil licence in London on August 23rd 1594. The surname was one of the first into the New England colonies of America, Cutberd Brooks being recorded as 'dead in Virginea' on February 16th 1623! An interesting recording taken from the Port of New York entry lists, is that of Edward Brooks, aged 18 yrs., a refugee from the 'Potato Famine', who sailed from Ireland on the ship "Ashburton" on March 7th 1846. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Eustace del Broc, which was dated 1130, in the "Pipe Rolls of Northamptonshire", during the reign of King Henry 1, known as "The Lion of Justice", 1100 - 1135.

NOTA I.V.M. FOUTIEWE INLIGTING AANGAANDE WILLIAM BROOKS VAN ENGELAND IN OVERBERG FAMILIES DEUR H. ENGELA:-

William BROOKS is in c. 1786 in Britanje gebore, en sterf in JAN 1826 en word vanuit die St. George Anglikaanse Kerk in Grahamstad, Suid-Afrika begrawe op 29 JAN 1826. Hy was 'n 1820 Britse Setlaar en het saam met sy tweede vrou, Ann, en vier kinders van sy eerste vrou, Mary Ann o.b.a. Marian, in Suid-Afrika geland. Hy is nie in Engeland oorlede soos ENGELA aandui nie. Sy eerste vrou, Mary Ann o.b.a. Marian, het op 28 JAN 1818 in Engeland gesterf en is daar begrawe. Sy het dus nie Suid-Afrika toe gekom nie, soos wat ENGELA aandui.

FOUT 2

Kinders van die stamvader William BROOKS was nie die kinders van Ann nie. Hul moeder was Mary BEW wat in 1818 oorlede is. Sien die profiel van William BROOKS vir detail.

FOUT 3

Sarah BROOKS (Sarah Susanna, Sarah Magdalena, Sarah Susanna, Susara Susanna, Sussara Susana) gebore 25 DES 1835 was die dogter van Joseph BROOKS en Florentina Magdalena LUCK. Sy word verkeerdelik as die dogter van William BROOKS en Eva Johanna LUCK aangegee in GISA Volume 1 Bladsy 463?

Notas

NOTA 1

John William BROOKS, seun van Marian BROOKS, is deur William BROOKS en Eva Johanna LUCK aangeneem.

NOTA 2

Die 4 kinders van William Henry Edward BROOKS by sy eerste vrou Alida Maria Coetzee is nie gelys op sy sterfkennis nie, alhoewel hul nog almal lewend was.

Die kinders is wel op hul ma se sterfkennis gelys in 1904.

NUWE INLIGTING

1. 14 MAART 2017 : Joseph BROOKS gebore 1837 het op die ouderdom van ongeveer 68 vir die derde keer getrou in 1909 met die weduwee Auguste Fredericke Henriette BARDNER gebore BRUMMERSTEDTEN. Sy word nie in Joseph se SK aangewys nie. Ek neem aan dit is oor hul nie kinders saam gehad het nie. Sy was 'n 49 jarige weduwee met 7 kinders uit haar vorige huwelik. Hul is in die Anglikaanse Kerk in Harrismith getroud. [6]
