John BROOKER (1572-?)

and Catherine ROCKES (c1580-?)

and Ann CHATFIELD (1586-?)


John Brooker and Catheren Rockes married on 24 September 1601 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex.  John may have married again to Ann Chatfield on 25 August 1617 in Hurstpierpoint.  (At one point I had thought John and Catherine were my ancestors, but have since realised they were not.)

John Brooker was baptised on 17 August 1572 in Worth, Sussex.  He was the son of William Brooker (c1540-1595) and Agnes

Catherine Rockesís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Anne Chatfield may have been baptised on 15 June 1586 in Woodmancote and have been the daughter of John Chatfield.  She may have been buried on 14 March 1629/30 in Worth, but the burial register just records that the wife of John Brouker was buried.


John Brooker and Catherine Rockes had 4 known children:

  1. John Brooker was baptised on 20 March 1602/3 in Hurstpierpoint.  He may have married Mary Heryot on 11 February 1621 and/or Eleanor West on 8 November 1632, both in Hurstpierpoint.

  2. Richard Brooker was baptised on 6 January 1604/5 in Hurstpierpoint.

  3. Thomas Brooker was baptised on 1 December 1611 in Hurstpierpoint.  He married 5 249 Anne Steer in 1633.  (They have their own page.)
