Surname Saturday~Alsey Brock

Pin It The first Brock to settle in the this area of North and South Carolina was  Valentine Brock.brock 4
Valentine entered the United States, arriving in Philadelphia onboard the ship Queen of Denmark, George Parish commander, from Rotterdam via Cowes, England, and took the oaths with the other 98 adult [age 16 and older] male passengers at the  [old] courthouse on Friday 4 Oct 1751. By 1780, Valentine and his family had migrated to Richmond County, NC and can be found listed in the 1790 census for Richmond County. 1 2

All the Brock in the Anson and Richmond County, NC and Chesterfield County SC are related to this early pioneer. 

Alsey Brock is a name that is only found in my direct line of Brock. Over the past 223 years there has been only two male children named Alsey in this line.

The first Alsey Brock, was born 10 Sept 1815 to Benjamin and Temperance Brock. He died 13 March 1858. This Alsey Brock was a brother to my 2nd Great Grand Father Hezekiah Brock. Alsey and Hezekiah married sisters, Lucy and Sarah Sallie Morris. 3 4 

The next Alsey Brock was born on 25 Jun 1855 in Chesterfield, Chesterfield, South Carolina.5 6 7 8




He is a son of Hezekiah and Sarah Sallie Morris Brock.

No evidence of a marriage for Alsey has been found. He was found in all census from 1860-1910  and they all showed him as a single man. 9 10  After the death of his Father, Hezekiah Brock, in a POW camp; Alsey assumed responsibility for the care of the family and his Mother Sarah Morris Brock. Sarah was still alive in 1900 and can be found in Alsey’s household.

No death date has been found for Alsey Brock but it is known that he died sometime after 27 Apr 1910. In the 1910 Census, his age is listed as 55 years.
