The Identity of the Wife of Thomas Brooks of Watertown and Concord

John Brooks Threlfall[1], writing on Thomas Brooks, calls his wife "Grace" but does not identify a surname for her. Threlfall[2], writing on Thomas Wheeler the Elder of Cranfield, Beds., lists his 13 children, none of whom were a daughter named Grace. It is worth noting that if the wife of Thomas Brooks had been Grace, daughter of Thomas Wheeler the Elder of Cranfield, Captain Timothy Wheeler of Concord would have married, as his third wife, his sister's daughter.
