BROOKS of Crediton & Exeter
« on: Monday 12 November 07 23:19 GMT (UK) »
I have William Brooks born 1825 (in Stockland, Dorset)  whose father William was a tanner from Crediton, married to Rebecca from Woodbury.  The family seem to have gone back to Devon when William jr was small. William jr then married Elizabeth Cotton, and moved to London.  Is anyone else researching this family?  Williams parents are William and Margaret. Im not 100% sure on Margaret's maiden name yet, its either Cotton or Button.
