While surfing various sites, I see that several people are still publishing the false information that William Brockett was born in
Wallingford, CT, son of Elisha. This has been proven to be wrong, and one would hope that all good researchers will correct their gedcoms and websites accordingly.
It is also unfortunate that John Brockett of New Haven is repeatedly shown to be born 1611, son of John of Caswell, who was son of Sir John Brockett III. This, too, is incorrect. The birth date is not yet proved, but John, son of John of Caswell, was not on the Hector in 1637. He was still in England in 1638, busy cheating his father out
of the Caswell farm, as proved in a Chancery Bill for that year and 1642-4. There is no evidence that Hector John was descended from Sir John III. Many people have based their Brockett ancestries on the false information.
