An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Broket family lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Broket was a name given to a young, headstrong person. The surname Broket is derived from the Old French words broque and brocke, which became the Old English words broket and brocket c. 1410. All of these words refer to a stag in its second year with its first set of horns. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Brokets to arrive on North American shores: John Brocket settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635; William Brockett settled in Virginia in the same year; John Brocket settled in Delaware in 1785.
