============================================

In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner and use a keyword (e.g. "church england") to find collections with those keywords..

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

Surname Saturday - BROOKMAN (England to colonial New England)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.  


I am working in the 9th great-grandmothers by Ahnentafel number, and I am up to Ancestor #2105 who is Alice BROOKMAN (1600-1657). 
[Note: the earlier great-grandmothers and 9th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts.]

My ancestral line back through one generations in this BROOKMAN family line is:


1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

4. Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942)
5. Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962)

8. Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1922)
9. Hattie Louise Hildreth (1857-1920)

16. Isaac Seaver (1823-1901)
17. Lucretia Townsend Smith (1827-1884)

32. Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825)
33. Abigail Gates (1797-1869)

64. Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816)
65. Martha Whitney (1764-1832)


130.  Samuel Whitney (1719-1782)
131.  Abigail Fletcher (1720-1783)

262.  John Fletcher (1692-1749)
263.  Mary Goble (1694-1734)


526.  Thomas Goble (1656-1724)
527.  Sarah Shepard (1657-1746)

1052.  Thomas Goble (1631-1690)
1053.  Ruth LNU (1633-1668)

2104.  Thomas Goble, born before 02 January 1591 in Westergate, Sussex, England; died before 11 December 1657 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.  He was the son of 4208. William Goble.  He married 05 November 1619 in Aldingbourne, Sussex, England.
2105.  Alice Brookman, born about 1600 in Aldingbourne, Sussex, England; died 1657 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

Children of Thomas Goble and Alice Brookman are:
*  John Goble, born 1629 in Sussex, England; died before 26 March 1675 in England.
Thomas Goble, born about 1631 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; died 22 November 1690 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; married (1) Ruth LNU April 1656 in probably Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; married (2) Mary Gove about 1668 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.
*  Elizabeth Goble, born about 1633 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; married (1) John White about 1653 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; born 1628 in England; died before 03 October 1676 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; married (2) Thomas Carter 07 June 1682 in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; born before 06 March 1610 in Hinderclay, Suffolk, England; died 05 September 1684 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.
*  Mary Goble, born before 27 February 1636 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; married Daniel Dean about 1656 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; born 1630 in England; died 09 November 1725 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.
*  Sarah Goble, born before 27 March 1638 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; died 30 November 1717 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; married John Shepard before 1661 in probably Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; born 26 October 1637 in Dedham, Norfolk, Massachusetts, United States; died 15 December 1699 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.
*  Daniel Goble, born before 18 July 1641 in Malden, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; died 26 September 1676 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States; married Hannah Brewer 25 February 1664 in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; born 18 June 1645 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States; died 11 September 1697 in Lancaster, Worcester, Massachusetts, United States.

I have no certain information about the Brookman line in England.  FamilySearch Family Tree says that her parents were Robert Brookman and Ellen Numby, both born in 1585.  But the FSFT says that Alice was born in Charlestown, Mass. in 1593, so the profile is imperfect (I edited the profile to make it somewhat more accurate)..

Information about the Goble family was obtained from:

*  Evelyn Goble Steen, Goble Genealogy Homepage   (http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~goble/homepage/), online database, Thomas (1) Goble (1591-1657) sketch.

*  Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration, 1634-1635, Volume 3, F-H (Boston : New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2002), pages 81-83, Thomas Goble sketch.
