      1. William Brockman lived on Priddy's Creek in Albemarle county, VA. He owned a large amount of land, purchased and willed to him, and had one of the first mills built in that area (Brockman Scrapbook, p. 163). The Priddy's Creek Baptist Church was build on his land. The land he owned via a will was through his father's estate.
      Information from Paul R. Brockman (brockmanfmly@earthlink dot net): "The road running north and slightly west from Stony Point was (and a porti on still is) known as Brock's Mill Road. For his provisioning of the
      Continental Army he was granted 1,000 acres on Silver Creek in Madison co., KY which was taken up by his sons Thomas and Ambrose."
      Information from Jim Brockman http://members.aol.com/Cissy.Brockman. index.html): "William was presumably born in King and Queen County, VA. When his first child was born, he was living in Orange County, VA. Soon after he moved to Charlottesville, VA and erected one of the first mills in the area. William was very prosperous in his business affairs and at the time of his death in 1809 was a very large land owner in three counties in Virginia."

      Copied from Brockman Family Genealogy Forum from a note posted 29 Nov 1999 by Paul R. Brockman: "William was born earlier than 1729--at least one of his children was born before 1745. My information pegs his birth date in the "teens"--1714 being most likely. He was born, apparently, in King & Queen County, VA. He moved with his parents to Orange County in 1734, to the land which has father bought in 1732, and operated a mill there (just upstream from Brock's Bridge, which was named for him ) until he moved to Albemarle County about 1762. He was buried near a spring on the side of a stream that runs southeast from the crest of the hill on which the Brockman Mitchell cemetery is located (in which
      Bluford and other descendants are buried). ..... William's will was probated in 1809 in Albemarle County. We have no vital dates or places for Elizabeth who died before William, but she is probably buried in the
      area where he is. Son Samuel, who married Anestar Sims, died before his father and is buried under a boxwood, near the swimming pool on the property he lived on at the time, now called "Red Horse Farm" and formerly known as "Green Plains," on route 20, about four or five miles by road from the place where he grew up. His will, too, is at the Albemarle (VA) Court House."
