Who was this Thomas Brackett?
Thomas Brackett had three children who were baptized in the First Church of Salem, Massachusetts:
BRACKETT births:
Thomas, son of Thomas, baptized 7: 10m: 1645
Mary, daughter of Thomas, baptized 4: 12m: 1648
Joseph, son of Thomas, baptized 15: 4m: 1651

Thomas Brackett had two children who died in Salem, Massachusetts:

BRACKETT deaths:
Lidea, daughter of Thomas, Jan. 1, 1667
Thomas, son of Thomas, Jan. 15, 1667

Thomas Brackett (Jr.) died on 15 Jan 1667 and his estate was inventoried on 1:5m: 1668 and administration was granted to his father, Thomas Brackett.
Thomas Brackett was fined for missing church and attending Quaker meetings on 04 and 11 Jul 1658. On 28 May 1659 Thomas Brackett petitioned the court to have his fine remitted, “humbly acknowledging his being drawn away by those called Quakers from good ordinances of god here established, and too often to meet and join with those ill affected persons, to dishonor God, troubled this commonwealth, & wound & greife to his wife, family & conscience, for which he desires to be humbled.”
H. I. Brackett, in his Brackett Genealogy, indicates that Thomas was a brother to Richard and Peter Brackett of Braintree, Massachusetts. The will of Richard and Peter’s father, Peter Brackett of Sudbury, Suffolk, England does not include a Thomas Brackett as his son. Was he possibly a Brockett instead of a Brackett. One record I have seen gives his name as Thomas Brockett.
