    Notes:

    Jacobus (citation details below) has Samuel Brockett born three months before the date he gives for Samuel's parents' marriage. The citation given for both events is "WV", Wallingford vital records. Perhaps the "15 Feb 1682" date should actually be, in new style, 15 Feb 1683. Or perhaps Samuel Brockett was simply born out of wedlock.

    Notes:

    From Divorce, Murder and Madness: The Puritan Tuttles of the New Haven Colony:

    Mercy Tuttle, the youngest daughter of the clan, had married Samuel Brown in 1667 at age 17. The couple had several children, including a son, Samuel. They lived in Wallingford.

    It would come out later that Mercy Tuttle was erratic in her behavior throughout life. (Her older brother, David, had also been judged insane years earlier.)

    When Mercy’s husband died in 1691, there was no longer anyone to act as a check on her. On the night of June 23, she attacked her son Samuel with an ax and killed him. Mercy admitted she had killed her son, but said it was not done out of malice. Instead, she said, the murder was committed “at the instigation of the devil.”

    In October 1691, the court convicted Mercy of murder, but withheld sentence until 1693. Then it ruled: “Having weighed the evidences given in, to prove that she hath generally been in a crazed or distracted condition as well long before she committed the act, as at that time, and having observed since that she is in such a condition, do not see cause to pass sentence of death against her, but for preventing her doing the like or other mischief for the future, do order, that she shall be kept in custody of the magistrates of New Haven.”

    And that’s where she died, in the custody of the magistrates of the New Haven Colony her father had hoped to build.

    "John Brockett was one of the original settlers at New Haven, where he was made a freeman in 1639, and was one of those to sign on June 4, 1639, the compact to govern the community according to the scriptures. He was an excellent surveyor, and was called upon soon after its settlement to lay out the square in the centre of the town, which he did with great accuracy. A few years later the Governor of New Jersey sent for Brockett to lay out Elizabeth Towne (Elizabeth, New Jersey). When the first General Assembly of New Jersey convened at Elizabeth Towne on May 26, 1668, Brockett was chosen as its representative in the House of Burgesses."
