Children with Rev. Timothy/3w Brooks:

Hannah/3 Bowen, born 3 May 1665 at Rehoboth, Massachusetts3, was of Swansea when she married there, 10 Nov 1685, Rev. Timothy/3w Brooks Jr. of Swansea, son of Capt. Timothy/2w Brooks and Mary Russell.4,5 They lived at Swansea for perhaps five years after marriage.
     About 1690 they followed Timothy's father to Salem County, West Jersey. According to Robert Peacock Brooks, they landed at the mouth of the Cohansey River, then Salem and today Cumberland County.

Some of these people settled along the north side and some on the south side. The Brooks, Bowens, Barrotts and the Swinneys settled along the north side near Bridgetown (Bridgeton) and called their settlement 'Bowentown,' or the Brooks Company, for the reason that Timothy Brooks, Junior, was their pastor. The region near the home of the Barrotts was known and is still known today [1927] as Barrotts Run ... Many of the descendants of Timothy, Jr. live in the region of Bowentown, and for many years his lineal descendants lived on the farm of his father at that place.6

     8 Dec 1699, the nuncupative will of Ralfe Horsley of Chohansey, Salem County, giving all his property to his wife, was proved by the testimony of Timothy and Hannah Brooks.7 Daughter Hannah Brooks was named in the will of her father Obadiah/2 Bowen, dated 11 Dec 1708 at Swansea.1
     16 Oct 1711, Timothy and Hanna Brooks of Cohanse, County of Salem, West Jersey, granted power of attorney to "our well beloved brother John Brooks" of Rehoboth, to receive a legacy on their behalf, to be paid by Thomas Bowen of Swansea, "from his and our Hon'rd ffather Obadiah Bowen Sen'r."8 10 Mar 1712, John Brooks of Swanzey, as attorney for Timothy and Hannah Brooks, receipted to Thomas Bowen, executor, for 8 pounds 10 shillings, '& one bed & beding in full of a Legacie … unto sd Hannah Brooks.9' Thomas Bowen of Swansea, executor of the estate of Obadiah/2 Bowen of Swansea, reports, 12 May 1712, legacy to John Brooks for (brother) Timothy Brooks (of West Jersey) and Hannah his wife.8
     Hannah was also mentioned in her husband's will, 26 Jan 1715/16, and named co-executor of his estate 10 Feb following.10,11
