Just a few minutes ago I was informed that my BROOKS ancestors were "Scotch-Irish" and the name was originally SEABROOK/SEABROOKS. This family supposedly was in America by the late 1600s/early 1700s. There is no indication as to when the SEABROOK turned to BROOKS. As the story goes, they settled in Pennsylvania and when Lord Baltimore started to make a move toward PA, William Penn encouraged the "Scotch-Irish" folks to move toward the southern part of PA to deter this move. This BROOKS family settled in Lancaster, PA area. Does this sort of story ring a bell with anyone? Thanks. Dorothy Dresher, PA
