[BROK591] Christopher Brooke m. [POWE592] Elizabeth Powell
. [BROK602] Hannah Brooke m. [CHMX601] George Chambers

[BROK591] Christopher Brooke (of unknown origin). Christopher (of Hunslet) married (at Leeds, St. Peter, 6th May 1630) [POWE592] Elizabeth Powell (of Kirkgate, born 1610, see POWELL). They appear to have had eight children born at Hunslet Whaite [possibly Thwaite] and Rothwell as follows:

The following children of Christopher Brooke born at Brigait are possibly those of another Christopher Brooke, perhaps the one whose son Robert was baptised at Hartshead (2nd May 1630). This would agree with Robert, son of Christopher, who died at Brigait (stated to have been age 22), and was buried at Leeds, St. Peter, (30th September 1653).

Ann (-), died in Brigait, buried at Leeds, St. Peter, (14th May 1646);

Jane (born in Brigait, baptised at Leeds, St. Peter, 7th March 1646-47);

Joshua (born in Brigait, baptised at Leeds, St. Peter, 25th May 1651);

Elizabeth (born in Brigait, 17th August 1654, baptised at Leeds, St. Peter, 20th August 1654);

Christopher died in Brigait, buried at Leeds, St. Peter, (26th October 1658), should be the one from Hartshead.

 

Chr'ofer Brooke was assessed with 2 hearths at the 1673 Hearth Tax in the Mill Hill ward.

[BROK602] Hannah Brooke (born 1638, daughter of Christopher) married (at Leeds, St. Peter, 20th April 1659) [CHMX601] George Chambers (born 1633, see CHAMBERS (2)).
