1. Thomas Brooke of Madeley d 1675
Visitation ends with this generation. The following comes from VCH Shropshire, vol 11, Madeley - Manor and other estates and However, whilst VCH suggests that Madeley passed from this Thomas d 1675 to his grandson Basil, who dsp 1699, and then to Basil's cousin Comberford Brooke of Comberford, the comerfordfamily site shows Comberford as son of Thomas, the son/heir of Sir Basil who was executed in 1646. Noting the dates when this Thomas's sisters were married, we suspect that the Thomas who married Anne Comberford was not son but grandson of Sir Basil and so show the succession as follows:
A. ?? Brooke
i. Basil Brooke of Madeley dsp 1699
B. Thomas Brooke 'of Wolverhampton & Comberford' b c1655
m 14.04.1675 Anne Comberford b c1656, dau/coheir of Robert Comberford of Comberford by Catherine
i. Comberford Brooke of Madeley & Comberford b c1675, d 1710-1, Captain
m Rose Austen dau of Sir John Austen, 2nd Bart of Bexley
a. Basil Brooke of Comberford & Madeley d 1727who may have been the Basil who married ...
m Winifrid Browne dau of George Browne
b. Catherine Brooke d 1737
m John Unett Smitheman of Little Wenlock d 1744
c. Rose Brooke d 1763
m 1733 John Giffard 'of Madeley'
ii. Catherine Brooke
iii. Mary Brooke
m Sherrington Grosvenor of Tamworth
a. Sherrington Grosvenor of Holt, later in Langley a 1771
m Rose Austen niece of Rose Austen
2. Anne Brooke
m William Fitzherbert b c1612, d 1662, great-grandson of Chief Justice Sir Anthony
3. Mary Brooke
m Thomas More great-great-grandson of Lord Chancellor Sir Thomas
4. Dorothy Brooke
m 1622 Joseph Glasebrooke of Madeley
5.+ other issue - Agatha, Catherine
m2 Frances Mordaunt dau of Henry, Lord Mordaunt, sister of John, Earl of Peterborough, widow of Sir Thomas Neville
7. Frances Brooke apparently of this generation, of this marriage
