The Brookes are a family of great an-
tiquity, settled originally co. Chester. Wil-

name till the 17th century) was living in
1159; he was the immediate ancestor of the

Oakley branch of this family : the 7th in

John Bush, knt., and to have been lord of

nay, knt. The visitations in the college of
anns state that William Broke (4th in de-
scent from sir Nicholas) m. the niece of sir
Thomas Billinge, lord chief justice, 6 Ed-
ward IV. He appears by various family-
deeds, copies of which are in the British
Museum, (vide Harleian Catalof(ue, No. 4028,
p. 1G6, 170 — 175,) to have exchanged the
manors of Astwell, Fawcote, and Wappen-
ham, CO. Northampton, (24 April, 11 Ed-
ward IV.,) with Thomas Lovett, for the
manors and towns of Great Oakley and
Rushton, and other considerable estates in
the parishes of Bulwick, Henswicke, Sta-
nion, Newton, Weekly, and Little Oakley,
in the same county. This exchange took
place on the marriage of his son, John, with
Margaret Lovett. The said John m., 2dly,
Isabel, da. of Thomas Wake, of Blisworth,
styled ihe great Wake, who was representa-
tive CO. rsforthampton the greater part of
his life : by this 2d marriage, he had issue,
Thomas Broke, who m. the da. of Giles
Poulton, of Desborough : his son, Thomas
Broke, m. Jane, h. of Thomas Moore, of
Bourton, co. Bucks, who was descended,
through the Paulets, from Joan, wife of
Gilbert de Clare, earl of Gloucester, the da.
of Edward I. : his son, Arthur Broke, m.
Catharine, da. of sir Edward Watson, of
Rockingham, grandda. of sir Edward Mon-
tague, of Boughton, chief-justice of Eng-
land, which said Catharine was also de-
scended from the above-named Joan, by
her 2d husband, Ralph de Monthermer.

Sir Thomas Broke, son of Arthur, m.
Judith Shugburgh, descended from Guy,
earl of Warwick, and William the Con-
queror, Edward Broke, his brother, m.

master-general. Arthur, son of sir Thomas,

ville, knt., of Holt, CO. Leicester, descended

CO. Cork, esq., and had issue one child, sir
Richard -Brookk Dk-Capkll-Hiu)okk,
1st bart., who, on the death of his father in
17!>7> changed his name to Brooke, as direct-
ed by the will of his great uncle, Wheeler
Brooke, esq., and at the same time obtained
the royal licence to re-assume the name of
De Capell, the original paternal name of this
family : his ancestor, Vhilip-de-Capcll, hav-
ing gone over to Ireland with Rol)ert Filz-
stephen in the reign of Henry II., and hav-
ing been present with him at the contiuest

of the kingdom of Cork, who, for his ser-
vices, granted to him and his heirs the estate
of Ahadoe and other considerable property
in that county, held by knight's service, and
the payment of a pair of spurs annually
at Easter (vide the grant in Birmingham
Tower). This estate, subject to the same
quit-rent, has been in possession of the
family to the present tmne; and it ap-
pears by the Down survey in the castle of
Dublin, to be described as the property
of William Supple, esq., English Protest-

Keating, in his " History of Ireland," p.
552, mentions the name of Supple, as one
of those remaining who were descended from
the English who first settled in Ireland.
Edward Grimstone, serjeant-at-arms 1(315,
published a translation from the French of
a work relative to Ireland, in which this
family are mentioned as gentlemen of note
at that period, and as descended from Eng-
lish ancestors. An ancient MS. in the Bri-
tish Museum gives a list of English families
who came into Ireland in the reign of Henry
II., Richard L, and king John (vide No.
4814, Pint. D. ;) and among these names
occurs James Chappell, otherwise Capell,
otherwise Supple, baron.
