  • BIRTH: 18 Dec 1826, Tampa, Florida

Notes


"BROOKE, John Mercer (Naval Commander, Scientist), was born to General George Mercer and Lucy (Thomas) Brooke on December 18, 1826, in Tampa, Florida. After early tutoring, he joined the U.S.Navy in March 1841 and served on the DELAWARE. In 1845, he entered the U.S.Naval Academy from which he graduated in 1847.


He was an Episcopalian. He was married twice, first to Elizabeth Selden Garnett and then to Kate Corbin Pendleton. In 1849 and 1850, he served on the U. S. Coastal Survey. Affiliated with the U.S. Naval Observatory from 1851 to 1853, he surveyed the route between California and China, tested the use of deep sea sounding apparatus, and made marine surveys of Japan. He received the Gold Science Medal of Berlin from King William I of Prussia.


Brooke resigned his navy commission in April, 1861 and entered the Confederate Navy. He spent the Civil War in service around Richmond, Virginia, where his inventive genius strengthened the otherwise weak resources of the Confederacy. He received a Confederate patent in 1861 for his submerged bow type of ship construction, which was used in building the ironclad ram, the VIRGINIA. In 1863, he was made a captain in charge of ordnance and hydrography; later, he was promoted to the rank of commander. He also was the first to place the firing charge of the naval gun in front of the chamber, which lessened the initial tension of gases. His invention was called the "Brooke" gun. After the war ended, he became a professor at Virginia Military Institute, where he taught from 1865 until his retirement in 1899. He died in Virginia in 1904. Scharf, HISTORY OF THE CONFEDERATE NAVY; Tyler, ENCYCLOPEDIA OF VIRGINIA, II (From BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY OF THE CONFEDERACY, p. 110-1)"


John Mercer Brooke, son of George Mercer and Lucy Thomas Brooke, was born 18 Dec. 1846 at Fort Brooke, Fla. Col. George Mercer Brooke, a native of Virginia, established and was the first commanding officer of Ft. Brooke, Fla., the post being named in his honor. Ft. Brooke, established in 1824 as an outpost for the Seminole War, was originally a sixteen miles square including the entire present site of Tampa and much of Hillsborough County. Its bounds were later contracted to that part of Tampa which is south of the present Whiting St. John M. Brooke was the first child born of Anglo-Saxon parents in Tampa or the entire Tampa Bay area. He was educated at Kenyon College, Ohio, and at the U. S. Naval Academy, Class of 1847. Resigning in 1861 he was commissioned in the Virginia State Navy and later in the Confederate States Navy. While he was Chief of Bureau of Ordinance and Hydrography the U. S. S. Merrimac was reconstructed as the C. S. S. Virginia. Many authorities attribute the basic design to him. He was professor at VMI from 1866 to 1899, and died 14 Dec.1906.


JOHN M. BROOKE AND THE C.S.S. VIRGINIA Commodore Marshall Parks, an intimate friend of Chief Engineer Williamson, had many opportunities to learn from him the history of the Merrimack and has furnished the author the following testimonial both as to the character of the model Porter took to Richmond and as to Chief Engineer Williamson's statement of what took place at the meeting of the board on the 25th of June 1861. "In reply to your communication I will state that when I was appointed by the Governor and Council of North Carolina as commissioner to establish a Navy, I had to visit the Gosport Navy Yard frequently to obtain supplies for the gunboats we had purchased asnd were fitting out in Norfolk. I well recollect from one of these visits able constructor John L. Porter exhibited to me a model of an iron clad which was identical to the same plan which was afterwards appled to the Merrimack. "I went to Raleigh and informed the Governor and members of the legislature of the plan and suggested that some iron clads be built for the defense of the North Carolina sounds. I recollect that the plan so impressed me and them that I was directed to write a "bill" to authorise the Governor to have some vessels built on the plan and it was passed immediately. The state of North Carolina soon after this decided to join the Confereracy and I was directed to Richmond to turn over all the steamers we had purchased and fit out to the Confederate States Navy Department. I have had a life-long acquaintenance with Major P. W. Williamson, who is a senior engineer of the United States Navy, and during and since the war he always expressed to me that the Merrimack was converted to an iron clad after the plans of Mr. John L. Porter and Mr. John M. Brooke." [Letter by Marshall Parks, Norfolk, Va. Jan 9, 1892] (From "A Record of Events in Norfolk County, Virginia, from April 19, 1861 to May 10, 1862, with a History of the Soldiers and Sailors of Norfolk County, Norfolk City and Portsmouth Who Served in the Confederate States Army or Navy" by John W. H. Porter, Published in Portsmouth, Va., W. A. Fisk, Printer, 1892) [Included in the PARKS SCRAPBOOK] Detailed background on the origin and design of the C. S. S. VIRGINIA is contained in JOHN M. BROOKE by G. M. Brooke. He mentions that John M. Brooke applied for a patent on his design for ironclad warships based upon the unique feature of his plan that had been applied to the VIRGINIA; the submerged ends of the vesel, extending beyond the forward and after ends of the shield. Patent 100 was granted to Brooke by the Confederate Patent Office on July 29, 1862. The original patent is in the possession of G. M. Brooke."

Birth: 18 DEC 1826 in Tampa, Florida at Fort Brooke, Fla Death: 14 DEC 1906 in Lexington, Virginia

John Mercer BROOKE was educated at Milner Hall, a preparatory school of Kenyon College, Ohio and at Burlington, New Jersey. He entered the United States Navy on March 3 1841 at the age of 15, reporting as a midshipman to Captain Farragut on the USS Delaware. In 1847 he graduated with the first class from the Naval academy at Annapolis.


He was assigned to duty at the Naval Observatory, Washington from 1851-53, and with the US Coast Survey.


While there he invented the deep-sea sounding apparatus which revolutionized communication between Europe and America, making possible the laying of the first Atlantic cable.


He was with the Naval Pacific Surveying and Exploring Expedition in the sloop of war "Vincennes" under Commodore John Rodgers, having charge of the Astonomical Department, and later was in command of a vessel making surveys of island in the Pacific and a part of the coast of Japan.


The destruction of his vessel by a typhoon in 1859 while Brooke was in Yeddo, caused him to remain in Yokohama until the following year.


In recognition of his services the Japanese offered him a purse of $60,000, which he declined. He did, however, accept their invitation to accompany them to Washington when they decided to send an embassy to the United States in 1860.


He resigned from the Navy on the succession of Virginia in April, 1861, and entered the Confederate service.


He was appointed Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance and Hydrography under the Secretary of the Navy, Stephen R. MALLORY.


While in the Navy he invented the Brooke gun, discovered the utility of the air space in cannon, designed plans for an iron-clad vessel with submerged ends, which were used in reconstruting the "Virginia" into the "Merrimac", preparatory to her memorable engagement in Hampton Roads with the Federal "Monitor", and drew up directions for the cruise of the "Shenandoah" involving the destruction of the whaling fleet.


In 1867 Brooke received from King William of Prussia the gold medal of science awarded by the Berlin Academy of Science.


In 1866 he was appointed professor of physics and astronomy at the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, which chair he held until 1899, when he was made professor emeritus.


He died in Lexington on December 14, 1906.


He had one daughter by Miss Garnett---Anna Maria BROOKE.


He married secondly, Mrs Kate Corbin PENDLETON, widow of Lieut-Col. A.S. PENDLETON, and had two children by her. SOURCES: Colonial Families of the United St ates, page 314.
