Brooke Family History - Irish

Brooke

Descended from Basil Brook, a high ranking Elizabethan officer, the earliest of the name to be noted in Ireland, the Brookes acquired Rantavan, Co. Fermanagh, in 1685. Charlotte Brooke (1745-1793), almost the first in modern times to appreciate and collect poems in the Irish language, was born there, as was her father Henry Brooke (1706-1783) a poet of some note. Lord Brookesborough - Sir Basil Brooke - was Prime Minister of Northern Ireland. In other parts of the country families called Brooks (usually so spelt) settled under the Cromwellian regime.
