- ! "Matthew Brooks , lived in Frederick County Virgina. He is first found in the records of Spottsylvania County Virgina, and since Fredrick was formed 1738 from Orange county, and Orange was formed in 1734 from Spottsylvania, it is easily conceivable that Matthew did not move but his lands were included in these counties when they formed. It seems more probable that he moved from Spottsylvania to Fredrick County , as he seems to be the same Matthew that witnessed a deed in Spottsylvania County 8-5-1740. In Aug 1742 he is on record in the same county . Then in March 7, 1748 he was appointed a Constable in Frederrik County Va. and on March 5, 1753 he was appointed overseer of the roads in Fredrick County. On 3-4-1755 appraisal of his estate was made in Fredrick County Bk. 2 p, 150 " Brooks and Kindred Families by Ida Brooks Kellam.
