Biography

John, son of Richard Brook, a clothier of Helme, and Susanna Wood, was baptized on 27 March 1768 at the Chapelry of Meltham, in the parish of Almondbury[1].

John married twice. He first married Betty Pearson at All Hallows, Almondbury, on 26 September 1791[2]. They went on to have three daughters together, but she died in 1801. He then married Mary Wild at All Hallows, Almondbury, on 11 April 1803[3]. The marriage took place two days before the birth of their first son, Joseph. They went on to have at least nine children together.

England Census of 1841[4]: John lives with his wife and four children at Edge End, Crosland Edge, South Crosland, Yorkshire. He lives next door to his younger brother Richard ("Dickey") and his family.
England Census of 1851[5]: John lives with his wife, four children, and three grandchildren at Edge End, Crosland Edge, South Crosland, Yorkshire. His neighbour is his younger brother Richard ("Dickey") and his family.

John died at Edge End, Crosland Edge, in 1854 and was buried at Holy Trinity, South Crosland, on 29 April 1854. I have a copy of the burial record but cannot upload it due to copyright restrictions.
