English: variant of Brook , which preserves a trace of the Old English dative singular case, originally used after a preposition (e.g. ‘at the brook’).
History: In 1650, Robert and Mary Mainwaring Brooke brought ten children and a number of servants with them from England to MD, where Robert became governor. Although the fourteen known contemporary Brooke immigrants in VA included Robert's brothers Richard and Humphrey, the relationships of the others are unknown. Brooke family memorials remain in the Anglican church at Whitchurch, Hampshire, England.
