Township of Brookfield
Brookfield is a township situated in the western part of the county of Noble, state of Ohio, United States of America. It is bounded on the east by the township of Noble; on the south by the township of Sharon and the county of Morgan and its township of Manchester; on the southwest corner by the county of Morgan and its township of Bristol; on the west by the county of Muskingum and its township of Meigs; on the northwest corner by the county of Muskingum and its township of Rich Hill; and on the north by the county of Guernsey and its township of Spencer.
In 1819 Brookfield was organized by the commissioners of Morgan County as a full congressional township (township 8, range 10) of thirty-six sections. It was taken from Morgan County when Noble County was erected and organized in 1851.
On 1 May 1851, the commissioners of Noble County altered the township's boundaries by taking the eastern tier of sections to become a part of Noble Township. The boundaries were made as follows:
Commencing at the southeast corner of section 35 in township 7 [sic, actually 8], of range 10; thence north along the section line to the northeast corner of section 2, in said township and range; thence west along said township line to the northwest corner thereof; thence south along said township line to the soutwest corner thereof; thence east along said township line to the place of beginning; containing thirty sections.
