Re: John Brockett article

Michael: One needs to study closely Prof Brockett's details (in the Archive)concerning the home at Caswell (Casswell). In 1638, John Sr deeded the property to Jr. The 1642 suit claims that Jr had illicitly influenced the people preparing the deed to leave out a vital clause, making it possible for Sr to lose the whole farm, which he did. I have asked Adrian to make an additional entry in the Chronology to more clearly show Jr's involvement in this particular deal in 1638. This should help show that Jr could not have been the John Brockett sailing to America in '37. (Also, I think there can be no doubt that a man guilty of such fraud --and against his own father-- would not have been a welcome member to Davenport's very straight-laced Puritans. New Haven John was a better man than this.) arwen
