  1. THOMAS Brooke: Birth: ABT 1467 in Cowling, Kent, England. Death: 19 Jul 1529

a. Note: John BROOKE (2° B. Cobham) Born: 10 Dec 1447, Cowling, Kent, England Died: 9 Mar 1511/12 Buried: 9 Mar 1511, Colegiate Church, Cobham, Kent, England Notes: 7th Ld Cobham. Of Weycroft, Devon and Cooling, Kent. Succeeded to the title on 19 Aug 1472. From 1491 to 1492 he was in an expedition to Flanders with King Henry VII. He fought in the Cornish insurrection at Blackheath on 24 Jun 1497, with Lord Abergavenny. There exists reasonably strong evidence of a special relationship between Thomas Phelips and the Brooke-Cobham family, seated at Cooling, Kent. The Brooke family has West Country origins and, if Thomas Phelips had been the administator or surveyor of at least some of the Booke-Cobham estates, his migration from Kent to Somerset is easily explained. Such a relationship would also explain the presence of Brooke estate documents among the Phelips family papers in the Somerset County Record Office. Further, such an influencial connection, could explain his rise in rank form yeoman in 1460 to gentleman by 1466 and his appointment to the office of Escheator fro Somerset & Dorset in 1471 and 1478. [Ref.: Ibid, p. 3-4}. Further evidence of a relationship derives from a lease extant in the Kent County Record Office in which John, Lord Cobham leased his manor of Brooke Montacute to "Jane Phillip , widow." [ Ref.: Ibid p. 3, citing Kent County Record Office ref. U601 T202]. Father: Edward BROOKE (1° B. Cobham) Mother: Elizabeth TOUCHET (B. Cobham) Married 1: Margaret NEVILLE (B. Cobham) Children: 1.
