    Notes 
    • From The Brooks Family, page 9:
      Ebenezer was a soldier in Phips’s Expedition to Quebec in 1690, and on Nov. 3, 1711, he and his wife, Martha, conveyed their homestead in Woburn to John Buck. At a selectmen’s meeting in Woburn, on Dec. 12, 1690, an account was made, in which “The wife of Ebeuezer Brooks received, when her husband was gone to Canada, by Samuel Blogget, Senior. ... 00. 02. 06.” In 1738, Jonathan Brooks, of Woburn, claimed, in right of his uncle Ebenezer Brooks, the uncle’s share in the lands granted to soldiers in the Canada Expedition of 1690, by the General Court of Massachusetts. Ebenezer Brooks’s rates were forgiven on March 2, 1695-6 (Woburn Town Records, vol. 4. p. 64). In Nov. 1696, his rate was erased per order, because of his extreme poverty. — Ibid., 80.
      On Sept. 22, 1716, Ebenezer Brooks and Martha, his wife, were received into full communion, at the church in Killingly, Conn., and on Sept. 2, 1716, Ebenezer, Jabez, Eleazer, Martha, Eunice and Priscilla, children of Ebenezer Brooks, were baptized there (Killingly Church Records, Putnam’s Historical Magazine, v. 3, p. 225; v. 4, p. 27).
