  • Notes 
    • Samuel Brocklebank By Nan Knight When he was a young boy, Samuel Brocklebank and his brother John would herd the town's cattle from Rowley, Massachusetts to Penn Brook in what is now Georgetown where there was good grass and plenty of water. In 1660/1 he was given the land grant for this property (Samuel Broklebank Historical Museum in Georgetown, MA) and after building a small house, lived there with his wife Hannah (Bradstreet?) whom he married on 18 May 1652. After his death this house was added on to by the next owners and became a parsonage for a few preachers (one of whom was Harriet Beecher Stowe's brother, Charles Beecher who started preaching there in 1857). Later it became a tavern. It is now (2007) a museum for the Georgetown Historical society at 108 East Main Street. Samuel was born about 1628 in England. In 1638 his widowed mother, Jane, joined with a group of about twenty families from Yorkshire, England, led by the Reverend Ezekiel Rogers of Rowley, Yorkshire, England, and came with her sons Samuel and John to America. They spent the first winter in Salem and then moved with the group (now about 60 families) onto some land between Ipswich and Newbury that later became Rowley. The family lot was on Wethersfield Street just a few lots away from William Stickney's lot that was on the corner of Wethersfield and Bradford streets. In 1649 Samuel became of age and became a proprietor. He was granted 162 acres of land in 1660/1 where he built the above-mentioned house. In 1666 he was granted 200 acres more. Active in community affairs he was a selectman for a time. He was a surveyor. Whether this was for an occupation or his public office at the time is unknown. On 18 Feb 1665 he was ordained a deacon. As required by all men of each town then, he was part of the militia. He was appointed captain of the Artillery Company in 1673. In 1675/6 King Phillip, the son of Massasoit, stirred up the Indians against the colonists throughout Massachusetts. Around November/December of 1675 Samuel recruited men to help fight the Narragansetts in Rhode Island. On January 1st of 1676 his company was called up again. They returned to Boston after five weeks of campaigning. They were then sent to Marlborough where Samuel was in command of the garrison and military operations. In April his company marched to Sudbury where he was joined with Captain Samuel Wadsworth in a fight that many felt turned the tide against King Phillip even though the colonists didn't fare very well. Both Captain Brocklebank and Captain Wadsworth were killed. Some believe it was the 18th and others the 21st of April 1676. In 1730 Captain Wadsworth's son had a monument erected on the site of where the men were buried to memorialize their efforts. The monument says," Captain Samuel Wadsworth of Milton, His lieutenant Sharp of Brookline, Captain Brocklebank of Rowley, with about twenty-six other Souldiers, Fighting for the Defence of their Country Were Slain by ye Indian enemy, April 18th, 1676 and lye, Buried in this place." This obelisk is in the Wadsworth Cemetery in Sudbury on Concord Road down the road from the other cemeteries. The children of Samuel and Hannah were: 1. Samuel born 28 November 1653 2. Francis born 26 September 1655, buried 22 July 1660 3. John buried 4 July 1660 4. Hannah, born 28 March 1659. Married John Stickney 5. Elizabeth born 1661 6. Mary married 13 October 1684 to William Dole 7. Sarah born 29 August 1666, buried 1 January 1667 8. Sarah born 7 July 1668 9. Jane born 31 January 1670/1 10. Joseph born 28 November 1674 Now widowed, Hannah remarried on 4 March 1679 to Richard Dole and moved away. Sources: 1. Information from the Brocklebank House Museum. 2.

      Jane BROCKLEBANK

      Ancestress Jane BROCKLEBANK, a widow, came from Yorkshire, England, with the company which followed the fortunes of the Reverend Ezekiel Rogers to the New World, most of whom settled at Rowley.[1] Hers was one of the first twenty families there in 1638 and there is evidence that she was of good estate and in comfortable circumstances.

      On 10 November 1643, a two-acre lot on Wethersfield Street was laid out to her, "bounded on the west by Matthew Boyes, part of it lying on the north side of the street, and part on the south." [2] In 1667 "Hog Island marshes" were laid out to several, Widow Brocklebank among the number. Our knowledge of her life and the incidents of which it was composed is very meager. The Rowley town records have the entry: "Jaine Brocklebank, widow, burried December 26, 1668."
      CHILDREN: {brought from England}

      SAMUEL, born about 1628; married HANNAH.
      John, born about 1630; married 26 Sept. 1657, Sarah, daughter of Archelaus Woodman. He was a town officer, and proprietor in 1650. His will, dated 30 November 1665, was probated 25 Sept. 1666, and mentions wife Sarah, and daughters Sarah and Elizabeth, although he also has a son, John, born 26 July 1658.

      Samuel BROCKLEBANK

      Samuel BROCKLEBANK, born in Yorkshire, England, about 1628, came with his mother, Widow Jane BROCKLEBANK, to Rowley, Massachusetts, in 1638, where he became a proprietor in 1649.

      Soon after becoming of age he was made a selectman of the town, and served his community in other important offices. In 1661 he had one hundred seventy-two acres of land laid out to him, and in 1666, two hundred acres more. He was ordained deacon of the church 18 Feb. 1665. In 1673 he was appointed by the court a captain of the Artillery Company which had been organized in Rowley in 1645.

      On 18 May 1652, Samuel Brocklebank married Hannah, who survived him and married again 4 March 1679, as his second wife, Richard Dole, Sr., of Newbury, Massachusetts, who is credited with have married a third time to Patience, widow of Shubael Walker.

      After his appointment as captain, Samuel Brocklebank was active in recruiting for the Narragansett campaign, and after the successful fight at, and capture of, the Fort, on a second call for recruits he went out with a company about 1 Jan. 1676. About 5 Feb. they returned to Boston, with five hard weeks of campaigning to their credit. Shortly after, Captain Brocklebank and his company were called to Marlborough, where he was placed in command of the garrison and military operations. He remained there until 21 April, when he marched to Sudbury, where he was joined by Captain Samuel Wadsworth and his company. Here they were ambushed by Indians, and both captains, with most of their men, most cruelly slain.

      Out of the twelve men which the town of Rowley contributed to this military movement, seven returned, and lived years afterward, among the number being Lieutenant John STICKNEY, who later married Captain Brocklebank's daughter Hannah.

      About 1730, the Reverend Benjamin Wadsworth, son of Captain Wadsworth killed by Indians at Sudbury, with the assistance, perhaps, of others, caused to be erected a monument at Sudbury, where the battle was fought. The monument bears this inscription: "Captain Samuel Wadsworth of Milton, His Lieutenant Sharp of Brookline, Captain Brocklebank of Rowley, with about twenty-six other Souldiers, Fighting for the Defence of their Country Were Slain by ye Indian Enemy, April 18th, 1676, and lye Buried in this place." This Reverend Benjamin Wadsworth had been minister of the First Church of Boston, and was president of Harvard College from 1725 to 1737.[3]
