My Brocklebank’s start in Brough in the former county of Westmorland UK, when a Benjamin Brocklebank of Brough married a Jane White of Crosthwaite nr Keswick, Cumberland in 1782 and resided in Crosthwaite
They went on to have 12 children and in that a set of twins, its their eldest child son George who is “my direct descendent”, after him its Benjamin’s all the way, until my grandfather Henry.
Present day we have no Benjamin’s in the family (as yet!!)
Point of interest, there are Brocklebank’s still residing in Egremont Cumberland.
