Our earliest known relative in England is John Brockman (c.1360) and this site contains all of his known descendants which are displayed in a combined family tree as well as smaller sub-branches. This site also features numerous photos of plaques in various family churches around Kent; a section on the development of the coat-of-arms; information about the former family estate of Beachbrorough Park which is located near Newington in Kent; and photos of interesting Brockman items owned by various family members.
This site will be updated periodically as new information comes to hand so I encourage you to provide input and submit photos of people or items you think will be of interest to others. While you are visiting, take the time to check your details and those of your immediate family and please submit updates using the Individual Person's Update Form under the Contact Me menu. In addition, there is a Guest Book so feel free to provide feedback.
The Notable Persons section under the Important Matters menu contains information on some outstanding family members so we encourage you to see this page. If you have an exceptional ancestor and we have overlooked them, please feel free to give us their details and we will be happy to display them.
There is also a list of books written by Brockman family members or other authors who have written about Brockmans. Please take the time to visit the Acknowledgments page. As stated above, this site is only possible with the cooperation and collaboration of a number of key people so take the time to see who these people are and what their efforts have given all family members.
Enjoy your visit and send me an email to get added to the Brockman distribution email list. Your privacy and confidentiality will be maintained and being on this list will ensure you receive update notices.
Brockman & Drake-Brockman Family Tree
English & Australian Branches
Welcome to the official Brockman and Drake Brockman Family webpage.
I am an Australian descendant, however, this website is very much a joint venture between the English and Australian families so I hope all family members around the world enjoy their visit to this site.
