    Notes:

    "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."

    He was later one of the original founders of Wallingford, Connecticut.
