Brook, Thomas a Bible Christian minister, was born in Cornwall, England, in 1800. He grew up to be a very wicked boy. Reading carefully Baxter's Call to the Unconverted, he was convinced of sin, sought and found salvation. For sixteen years he was a very acceptable local preacher. He made it a point of conscience never to neglect an appointment. In 1835 his name appears in the Minutes as appointed to the Kilkhampton Circuit. During the twenty- five years of his itinerant ministry he filled fifteen appointments. At the Conference held at Exeter, in 1860, he became superannuated, and settled at Crediton, in the Exeter Circuit. He took an active part in the cause of temperance, and was rendered very useful. He died August 5, 1875. See Minutes of the Conference, 1876.
