Research on the Cruse side of the Family Tree - Brook

 

Thomas Brook is another of those enigmas that you find in family history.  He married Susannah Saward in Chelmsford and their son Henry Brook was born around 1802.  We have not found where Thomas came from, even though the registers of the parishes around Chelmsford have been searched. Henry Brook was a printer in Duke Street in the various census entries.

After Henry Brook's first wife, Lucy Brook, nee Copsey, died in 1834 he married her sister Rebecca Copsey and went on to have more children.  With Lucy he had 5 children and 3 with Rebecca.  The marriage to Rebecca was in St John's, Lambeth in 1837, probably so that no one would know he was marrying his deceased wife's sister which was forbidden by law.
