FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 468

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the
Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,

Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.

The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)
II--Jacob, b. in Leyden; m. Damaris Hopkins.
III--Jane, b. .........; m. 1628, Experiance Mitchell.
IV--Esther, b. .........; m. 1644, Richard Wright.
V--Mary, b. 1626, in Plymouth; m. John Thompson.

Marriage:
Hester le Mahieu, 20 July 1603, Leiden.

Death: 7 April 1663, Plymouth.
Children: John, unnamed child buried in Leiden, Jane, Elizabeth, Jacob, Hester, and Mary.

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is probable he was
born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He married Hester le Mahieu on 20
July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury,
England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage
occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living
there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards. His wife Hester
was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland in the first place is unknown: religious
persecution of Protestants in England did not really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In
1606, the Cookes left Leiden and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but
returned to have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife
Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and
better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne
.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a number of minor
committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and received some minor appointments by
the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's
jury that examined the body of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother
Alice. He received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be about 80
years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years and perhaps longer.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 468

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is probable he was
born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He married Hester le Mahieu on 20
July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury,
England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage
occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living
there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards. His wife Hester
was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland in the first place is unknown: religious
persecution of Protestants in England did not really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In
1606, the Cookes left Leiden and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but
returned to have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife
Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and
better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne
.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a number of minor
committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and received some minor appointments by
the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's
jury that examined the body of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother
Alice. He received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be about 80
years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years and perhaps longer.

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is
probable he was born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He
married Hester le Mahieu on 20 July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French
Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury, England; she left for Leiden
sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage occurred in
Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was
living there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them
afterwards. His wife Hester was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland
in the first place is unknown: religious persecution of Protestants in England did not
really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In 1606, the Cookes left Leiden
and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but returned to
have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left
behind his wife Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After
the Colony was founded and better established, he sent for his wife and children, and
they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a
number of minor committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and
received some minor appointments by the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a
juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's jury that examined the body
of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother Alice. He
received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be
about 80 years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years
and perhaps longer.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 467
Page 468

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

SERVICE

Francis Cook, 17th Signer of the Mayflower Compact, born in England ca. 1583, died in Plymouth, Mass.,

SECOND GENERATION JOHN COOKE (I), son of Francis and Hester (Mahieu) Cooke was born about
1612, and came to New England, with his father, in the Mayflower, 1620. As a lad he had acquired an
education superior to that of most of his contemporaries, which was evinced by his own achievements
and shown in the strong, earnest character which distinguished him during his long life. The most active
period of his life was spent in Plymouth and although he never quite disassociated himself from
allegiance to the faith which the Pilgrims brought with them, his independence of thought seem to have
precluded entire acceptance of the orthodox establishment and his earnest nature compelled him to "
speak his mind" and give to his friends and neighbors the convictions concerning religious matters

Page 184
Page 185

which he himself had formed. He at one time became an Anabaptist preacher and after his removal to
Dartmouth, he was authorized by the Court at Plymouth, "to make contracts of marriage, administer
oaths, issue warrants in his Majestie's name" and to perform all civil and religious acts. In 1643, he was
serving in the military company of Plymouth and had engaged in many business enterprises and
accumulated an estate that in 1644, when he was just 24, was taxed equally with his father. He married,
March 28, 1634, Sarah, daughter of Richard Warren, the Mayflower passenger. Mistress Warren, the
widow of Richard, and mother of Sarah, in consideration of the marriage conveyed to John Cooke,
certain lands at Eel River, which in 1637, he exchanged for other lands with Richard Bartlett. He was a
volunteer in Captain Prince's company for service in the Pequot war, and was one of the owners of the
first vessel built in the colony, the forty-ton pride and delight of Plymouth. Between 1653 and 1660, John
Cooke removed to Dartmouth and took up holdings in the northerly part of Fairhaven, in the district now
known as Oxford. Here he lived at the time the crushing blow fell on Dartmouth, dealt by the infuriated
Philip whose savage hordes devastated the town with torch and tomahawk. Foreseeing the necessity,
John Cooke had converted his homestead into a "garrison house" and to this haven of safety the
inhabitants of that part of Dartmouth fled on the first alarm, those that reached it safely there defended
themselves but many were slain on their way. John Cooke died November 23, 1695, aged about 85
years. A large boulder with bronze inscription has been erected in Oxford, bearing the following memorial
: Sacred to the Memory of JOHN COOKE who was buried here in 1695. "The last surviving male Pilgrim

of those who came in the Mayflower. First white settler of this town, the pioneer in its religious, moral,
and business life. A man of character and integrity and the trusted agent for this part of the
Commonwealth of the Old Colonial Civil Government of Plymouth."

His will, dated November 9, 1694, names the following children and makes the widow, Sarah, executrix:
I--Sarah, b. abt. 1635; m. Nov. 20, 1652, Arthur Hathaway.
II--Elizabeth, b. .........; m. Nov. 28, 1661, Daniel Wilcox.
III--Esther, b. Aug. 16, 1650; m. Thomas Tabor.
IV--MERCY, b. July 25, 1654. (See following.)
V--Mary, b. Jan. 12, 1657; m. Philip Tabor.

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the
Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,
Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.

The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)
II--Jacob, b. in Leyden; m. Damaris Hopkins.
III--Jane, b. .........; m. 1628, Experiance Mitchell.
IV--Esther, b. .........; m. 1644, Richard Wright.
V--Mary, b. 1626, in Plymouth; m. John Thompson.

Marriage:

Children: Sarah, Elizabeth, Hester, Mary, and Mercy.

Biographical Summary
John Cooke was born in late 1606 or early 1607, and was baptized at the French Walloon church in
Leiden, Holland between January and March, 1607.

John spent his early years in Leiden, Holland, and came with his father on the Mayflower in 1620 at the
age of about 13 or 14. John was then raised in Plymouth; his mother and sisters came over on the ship
Anne in 1623, along with his future wife Sarah Warren. He would marry Sarah, the daughter of
Mayflower passenger Richard Warren, in 1634 at Plymouth. They would go on to have five children all
born in Plymouth over the next twenty years. John would become a deacon in the Plymouth Church,
and in 1636, Samuel Eaton (who was still breast-feeding when he came on the Mayflower) was
apprenticed to him.

At some point, during the late 1640s, John Cooke "fell into the error of Anabaptistry", and was cast out of

the Church. The Plymouth Church records state that "This John Cooke although a shallow man became
a cause of trouble and dissention in our Church and gave just occasion of their casting him out; so that
Solomon's words proved true in him that one sinner destroyeth much good."

John Cooke removed from Plymouth and took up residence in Dartmouth, where he died in 1695. His
wife Sarah was still alive in 1696, called "a very ancient woman"; her exact death date was not recorded
but it probably was not long after.

Marriage:
Hester le Mahieu, 20 July 1603, Leiden.

Death: 7 April 1663, Plymouth.
Children: John, unnamed child buried in Leiden, Jane, Elizabeth, Jacob, Hester, and Mary.

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is probable he was
born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He married Hester le Mahieu on 20
July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury,
England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage
occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living
there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards. His wife Hester
was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland in the first place is unknown: religious
persecution of Protestants in England did not really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In
1606, the Cookes left Leiden and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but
returned to have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife
Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and
better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne
.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a number of minor
committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and received some minor appointments by
the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's
jury that examined the body of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother
Alice. He received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be about 80
years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years and perhaps longer.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 467
Page 468

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

SERVICE

Francis Cook, 17th Signer of the Mayflower Compact, born in England ca. 1583, died in Plymouth, Mass.,

SECOND GENERATION JOHN COOKE (I), son of Francis and Hester (Mahieu) Cooke was born about
1612, and came to New England, with his father, in the Mayflower, 1620. As a lad he had acquired an
education superior to that of most of his contemporaries, which was evinced by his own achievements
and shown in the strong, earnest character which distinguished him during his long life. The most active
period of his life was spent in Plymouth and although he never quite disassociated himself from
allegiance to the faith which the Pilgrims brought with them, his independence of thought seem to have
precluded entire acceptance of the orthodox establishment and his earnest nature compelled him to "
speak his mind" and give to his friends and neighbors the convictions concerning religious matters

Page 184
Page 185

which he himself had formed. He at one time became an Anabaptist preacher and after his removal to
Dartmouth, he was authorized by the Court at Plymouth, "to make contracts of marriage, administer

oaths, issue warrants in his Majestie's name" and to perform all civil and religious acts. In 1643, he was
serving in the military company of Plymouth and had engaged in many business enterprises and
accumulated an estate that in 1644, when he was just 24, was taxed equally with his father. He married,
March 28, 1634, Sarah, daughter of Richard Warren, the Mayflower passenger. Mistress Warren, the
widow of Richard, and mother of Sarah, in consideration of the marriage conveyed to John Cooke,
certain lands at Eel River, which in 1637, he exchanged for other lands with Richard Bartlett. He was a
volunteer in Captain Prince's company for service in the Pequot war, and was one of the owners of the
first vessel built in the colony, the forty-ton pride and delight of Plymouth. Between 1653 and 1660, John
Cooke removed to Dartmouth and took up holdings in the northerly part of Fairhaven, in the district now
known as Oxford. Here he lived at the time the crushing blow fell on Dartmouth, dealt by the infuriated
Philip whose savage hordes devastated the town with torch and tomahawk. Foreseeing the necessity,
John Cooke had converted his homestead into a "garrison house" and to this haven of safety the
inhabitants of that part of Dartmouth fled on the first alarm, those that reached it safely there defended
themselves but many were slain on their way. John Cooke died November 23, 1695, aged about 85
years. A large boulder with bronze inscription has been erected in Oxford, bearing the following memorial
: Sacred to the Memory of JOHN COOKE who was buried here in 1695. "The last surviving male Pilgrim
of those who came in the Mayflower. First white settler of this town, the pioneer in its religious, moral,
and business life. A man of character and integrity and the trusted agent for this part of the
Commonwealth of the Old Colonial Civil Government of Plymouth."

His will, dated November 9, 1694, names the following children and makes the widow, Sarah, executrix:
I--Sarah, b. abt. 1635; m. Nov. 20, 1652, Arthur Hathaway.
II--Elizabeth, b. .........; m. Nov. 28, 1661, Daniel Wilcox.

Marriage:
Elizabeth Walker, 14 April 1610, Great Amwell, Hertford, England, daughter of Augustine Walker.

Death: 1628, Plymouth.
Children: Mary, Ann, Sarah, Elizabeth, Abigail, Nathaniel, and Joseph.
Biographical Information
Richard Warren's English origins and ancestry have been the subject of much speculation, and
countless different ancestries have been published for him, without a shred of evidence to support them.
Luckily in December 2002, Edward Davies discovered the missing piece of the puzzle. Researchers had
long known of the marriage of Richard Warren to Elizabeth Walker on 14 April 1610 at Great Amwell,
Hertford. Since we know the Mayflower passenger had a wife named Elizabeth, and a first child born
about 1610, this was a promising record. But no children were found for this couple in the parish
registers, and no further evidence beyond the names and timing, until the will of Augustine Walker was
discovered. In the will of Augustine Walker, dated April 1613, he mentions "my daughter Elizabeth
Warren wife of Richard Warren", and "her three children Mary, Ann and Sarah." We know that the
Mayflower passenger's first three children were named Mary, Ann, and Sarah (in that birth order).

Very little is known about Richard Warren's life in America. He came alone on the Mayflower in 1620,
leaving behind his wife and five daughters. They came to him on the ship Anne in 1623, and Richard
and Elizabeth subsequently had sons Nathaniel and Joseph at Plymouth. He received his acres in the
Division of Land in 1623, and his family shared in the 1627 Division of Cattle. But he died a year later in
1628, the only record of his death being found in Nathaniel Morton's 1669 book New England's Memorial,
in which he writes: "This year [1628] died Mr. Richard Warren, who was an useful instrument and during
his life bare a deep share in the difficulties and troubles of the first settlement of the Plantation of New
Plymouth."

All of Richard Warren's children survived to adulthood, married, and had large families: making Richard
Warren one of the most common Mayflower passengers to be descended from. Richard Warren's
descendants include such notables as Civil War general Ulysses S. Grant, President Franklin D.
Roosevelt, and Alan B. Shepard, Jr. the first American in space and the fifth person to walk on the moon.

Biographical Summary
John Cooke was born in late 1606 or early 1607, and was baptized at the French
Walloon church in Leiden, Holland between January and March, 1607.

John spent his early years in Leiden, Holland, and came with his father on the
Mayflower in 1620 at the age of about 13 or 14. John was then raised in Plymouth; his
mother and sisters came over on the ship Anne in 1623, along with his future wife
Sarah Warren. He would marry Sarah, the daughter of Mayflower passenger Richard
Warren, in 1634 at Plymouth. They would go on to have five children all born in
Plymouth over the next twenty years. John would become a deacon in the Plymouth
Church, and in 1636, Samuel Eaton (who was still breast-feeding when he came on
the Mayflower) was apprenticed to him.

At some point, during the late 1640s, John Cooke "fell into the error of Anabaptistry",
and was cast out of the Church. The Plymouth Church records state that "This John
Cooke although a shallow man became a cause of trouble and dissention in our
Church and gave just occasion of their casting him out; so that Solomon's words
proved true in him that one sinner destroyeth much good."

John Cooke removed from Plymouth and took up residence in Dartmouth, where he
died in 1695. His wife Sarah was still alive in 1696, called "a very ancient woman"; her
exact death date was not recorded but it probably was not long after.

SECOND GENERATION JOHN COOKE (I), son of Francis and Hester (Mahieu)
Cooke was born about 1612, and came to New England, with his father, in the
Mayflower, 1620. As a lad he had acquired an education superior to that of most of his
contemporaries, which was evinced by his own achievements and shown in the strong,


earnest character which distinguished him during his long life. The most active period
of his life was spent in Plymouth and although he never quite disassociated himself
from allegiance to the faith which the Pilgrims brought with them, his independence of
thought seem to have precluded entire acceptance of the orthodox establishment and
his earnest nature compelled him to "speak his mind" and give to his friends and
neighbors the convictions concerning religious matters

Page 184
Page 185

which he himself had formed. He at one time became an Anabaptist preacher and
after his removal to Dartmouth, he was authorized by the Court at Plymouth, "to make
contracts of marriage, administer oaths, issue warrants in his Majestie's name" and to
perform all civil and religious acts. In 1643, he was serving in the military company of
Plymouth and had engaged in many business enterprises and accumulated an estate
that in 1644, when he was just 24, was taxed equally with his father. He married,
March 28, 1634, Sarah, daughter of Richard Warren, the Mayflower passenger.
Mistress Warren, the widow of Richard, and mother of Sarah, in consideration of the
marriage conveyed to John Cooke, certain lands at Eel River, which in 1637, he
exchanged for other lands with Richard Bartlett. He was a volunteer in Captain
Prince's company for service in the Pequot war, and was one of the owners of the first
vessel built in the colony, the forty-ton pride and delight of Plymouth. Between 1653
and 1660, John Cooke removed to Dartmouth and took up holdings in the northerly
part of Fairhaven, in the district now known as Oxford. Here he lived at the time the
crushing blow fell on Dartmouth, dealt by the infuriated Philip whose savage hordes
devastated the town with torch and tomahawk. Foreseeing the necessity, John Cooke
had converted his homestead into a "garrison house" and to this haven of safety the
inhabitants of that part of Dartmouth fled on the first alarm, those that reached it safely
there defended themselves but many were slain on their way. John Cooke died
November 23, 1695, aged about 85 years. A large boulder with bronze inscription has
been erected in Oxford, bearing the following memorial: Sacred to the Memory of
JOHN COOKE who was buried here in 1695. "The last surviving male Pilgrim of those
who came in the Mayflower. First white settler of this town, the pioneer in its religious,
moral, and business life. A man of character and integrity and the trusted agent for this
part of the Commonwealth of the Old Colonial Civil Government of Plymouth."

His will, dated November 9, 1694, names the following children and makes the widow,
Sarah, executrix:
I--Sarah, b. abt. 1635; m. Nov. 20, 1652, Arthur Hathaway.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England
about 1583. He went to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The
marriage record at Leyden reads: "Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from
England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury, Eng., accompanied by
Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it
sailed from Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At
Southampton they joined the Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell
began to leak, but although the ships put into Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again
August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to London, with such
immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 467

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the
seventeenth signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694,
probably the oldest male survivor of the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of
their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke
being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as she came from the
French, by virtue of the communion of church."

SECOND GENERATION JOHN COOKE (I), son of Francis and Hester (Mahieu)
Cooke was born about 1612, and came to New England, with his father, in the

Mayflower, 1620. As a lad he had acquired an education superior to that of most of his
contemporaries, which was evinced by his own achievements and shown in the strong,
earnest character which distinguished him during his long life. The most active period
of his life was spent in Plymouth and although he never quite disassociated himself
from allegiance to the faith which the Pilgrims brought with them, his independence of
thought seem to have precluded entire acceptance of the orthodox establishment and
his earnest nature compelled him to "speak his mind" and give to his friends and
neighbors the convictions concerning religious matters

perform all civil and religious acts. In 1643, he was serving in the military company of
Plymouth and had engaged in many business enterprises and accumulated an estate

vessel built in the colony, the forty-ton pride and delight of Plymouth. Between 1653
and 1660, John Cooke removed to Dartmouth and took up holdings in the northerly
part of Fairhaven, in the district now known as Oxford. Here he lived at the time the
crushing blow fell on Dartmouth, dealt by the infuriated Philip whose savage hordes
devastated the town with torch and tomahawk. Foreseeing the necessity, John Cooke
had converted his homestead into a "garrison house" and to this haven of safety the
inhabitants of that part of Dartmouth fled on the first alarm, those that reached it safely

genealogy on Francis Cooke. It covers every descendant of his for the first five
generations, to the birth of the sixth generation. It's 685 pages packed full of well

Biographical Summary
John Cooke was born in late 1606 or early 1607, and was baptized at the French
Walloon church in Leiden, Holland between January and March, 1607.

John spent his early years in Leiden, Holland, and came with his father on the
Mayflower in 1620 at the age of about 13 or 14. John was then raised in Plymouth; his
mother and sisters came over on the ship Anne in 1623, along with his future wife
Sarah Warren. He would marry Sarah, the daughter of Mayflower passenger Richard
Warren, in 1634 at Plymouth. They would go on to have five children all born in
Plymouth over the next twenty years. John would become a deacon in the Plymouth
Church, and in 1636, Samuel Eaton (who was still breast-feeding when he came on
the Mayflower) was apprenticed to him.

At some point, during the late 1640s, John Cooke "fell into the error of Anabaptistry",
and was cast out of the Church. The Plymouth Church records state that "This John
Cooke although a shallow man became a cause of trouble and dissention in our
Church and gave just occasion of their casting him out; so that Solomon's words
proved true in him that one sinner destroyeth much good."

John Cooke removed from Plymouth and took up residence in Dartmouth, where he
died in 1695. His wife Sarah was still alive in 1696, called "a very ancient woman"; her
exact death date was not recorded but it probably was not long after.

perform all civil and religious acts. In 1643, he was serving in the military company of
Plymouth and had engaged in many business enterprises and accumulated an estate
that in 1644, when he was just 24, was taxed equally with his father. He married,
March 28, 1634, Sarah, daughter of Richard Warren, the Mayflower passenger.
Mistress Warren, the widow of Richard, and mother of Sarah, in consideration of the
marriage conveyed to John Cooke, certain lands at Eel River, which in 1637, he
exchanged for other lands with Richard Bartlett. He was a volunteer in Captain
Prince's company for service in the Pequot war, and was one of the owners of the first
vessel built in the colony, the forty-ton pride and delight of Plymouth. Between 1653
and 1660, John Cooke removed to Dartmouth and took up holdings in the northerly
part of Fairhaven, in the district now known as Oxford. Here he lived at the time the
crushing blow fell on Dartmouth, dealt by the infuriated Philip whose savage hordes
devastated the town with torch and tomahawk. Foreseeing the necessity, John Cooke
had converted his homestead into a "garrison house" and to this haven of safety the
inhabitants of that part of Dartmouth fled on the first alarm, those that reached it safely
there defended themselves but many were slain on their way. John Cooke died
November 23, 1695, aged about 85 years. A large boulder with bronze inscription has
been erected in Oxford, bearing the following memorial: Sacred to the Memory of
JOHN COOKE who was buried here in 1695. "The last surviving male Pilgrim of those
who came in the Mayflower. First white settler of this town, the pioneer in its religious,
moral, and business life. A man of character and integrity and the trusted agent for this
part of the Commonwealth of the Old Colonial Civil Government of Plymouth."

SECOND GENERATION JOHN COOKE (I), son of Francis and Hester (Mahieu)
Cooke was born about 1612, and came to New England, with his father, in the
Mayflower, 1620. As a lad he had acquired an education superior to that of most of his
contemporaries, which was evinced by his own achievements and shown in the strong,
earnest character which distinguished him during his long life. The most active period
of his life was spent in Plymouth and although he never quite disassociated himself
from allegiance to the faith which the Pilgrims brought with them, his independence of
thought seem to have precluded entire acceptance of the orthodox establishment and
his earnest nature compelled him to "speak his mind" and give to his friends and
neighbors the convictions concerning religious matters

Biographical Summary
John Cooke was born in late 1606 or early 1607, and was baptized at the French
Walloon church in Leiden, Holland between January and March, 1607.

John spent his early years in Leiden, Holland, and came with his father on the
Mayflower in 1620 at the age of about 13 or 14. John was then raised in Plymouth; his
mother and sisters came over on the ship Anne in 1623, along with his future wife
Sarah Warren. He would marry Sarah, the daughter of Mayflower passenger Richard
Warren, in 1634 at Plymouth. They would go on to have five children all born in
Plymouth over the next twenty years. John would become a deacon in the Plymouth
Church, and in 1636, Samuel Eaton (who was still breast-feeding when he came on
the Mayflower) was apprenticed to him.

At some point, during the late 1640s, John Cooke "fell into the error of Anabaptistry",
and was cast out of the Church. The Plymouth Church records state that "This John
Cooke although a shallow man became a cause of trouble and dissention in our
Church and gave just occasion of their casting him out; so that Solomon's words
proved true in him that one sinner destroyeth much good."

John Cooke removed from Plymouth and took up residence in Dartmouth, where he
died in 1695. His wife Sarah was still alive in 1696, called "a very ancient woman"; her
exact death date was not recorded but it probably was not long after.

4. Jane Cooke (Francis) was born in 1608. She died prior to June 8, 1666.

Taken from http://www.mayflowerfamilies.com/cooke/d27.htm#P21 on August 10, 2005 -

Experience (1) MITCHELL was born about 1602 in England?. (2113) Wood MF5G:12,
indicates that Experience's ancestry remains unknown, with a possible connection with a Thomas
Mitchell of England. He immigrated in Aug 1623 to Plymouth Colony, MA. (2114)
Experience came on the ship Anne. He died between 1685 and 1689 in Plymouth, MA.(2115) htm> (2116)

EXPERIENCE MITCHELL'S inventory was taken 14 May, 1689, and his will
was proved 4 September, 1689; therefore the date of the will, 5 December, 1689, as recorded by the
clerk, Samuel Sprague, is doubtless an error. The will must have been made on 5 December in the year
1688, or possibly even earlier.

The will and inventory are recorded in the Plymouth County Probate
Records, Volume 1, pages 44 and 45. The wife Mary mentioned in the will was a second wife, the first
one having been Jane2

According to MF5G:12: Experience was among several single men in the
colony, and he, together with five other unmarried young men, were listed in the Division of Cattle along
with Francis Cooke and his family--thus probably living with them at the time.

Mitchell, Experience


Experience Mitchell arrived in Plymouth in 1623 on the Anne, and Banks writes that he was from Duke's
Place, London. Underhill (Small Descendants, 1:510), based in part on Dexter (p. 625), thought
Experience was the son of Thomas Mitchell of Cambridge, England, who was a member of Francis
Johnson's church at Amsterdam, and that Experience was born in Leiden in 1611.

Experience received
a letter dated 24 July 1662 from his nephew Thomas Mitchell in Amsterdam in which Thomas mentions
having received Experience's letter dated 23 April 1661, and says, "I do also wish my cousin Elizabeth
much joy with her [p.328] daughter that God has given her to her six sons. I do also wish my cousin
Sarah much joy in her married estate" (PN&Q 3:102-03).

Experience was a Purchaser and was on the
1633 freeman list. He later moved to Duxbury, where he became a highway surveyor on 3 March 1639/
40 (PCR 1:141); he also served on various juries (PCR, passim). On 7 June 1659 he was fined ten
shillings for refusing to serve on the grand jury (PCR 3:168).

He married, probably not long after the
1627 cattle division, Jane Cooke, daughter of 1620 Mayflower passenger Francis Cooke; though there is
no record of their marriage, their son Thomas Mitchell in a deed of 1 August 1672 refers to some land
given him by his grandfather Francis Cooke (MD 3:104).

By his first wife Jane, Mitchell had Thomas
and Elizabeth, but indirect evidence indicates that the rest of his children, with the exception of Mary,
perhaps, were probably by his second wife Mary _____. See John B. Threlfall, "Comments on the Two
Wives of Experience Mitchell of Plymouth, Mass.," NEHGR 127:94; Robert S. Wakefield, "Not All the
Children of Experience Mitchell Are Mayflower Descendants," TAG 59:28; and Barbara L. Merrick, "
Some Descendants of Francis Cooke, Mayflower Passenger," MQ 49:130. Also see Merton Taylor
Goodrich, "Gaining Experience-A Problem in the Mitchell Family," TAG 12:193.

In his will, dated 5
December 1684, inventory 14 May 1689, Mitchell named his wife Mary; sons Edward and John;

grandsons Experience and Thomas; granddaughter Mary Mitchell; and daughters Mary Shaw, Sarah
Hayward, and Hannah Hayward (MD 32:97). His daughter Elizabeth, who married John Washburn, and
his son Jacob, who married Susanna Pope, predeceased him.

In 1631 Experience sells his dwelling
house, garden plot and fence, leading to the speculation that this may have been the approximate date
of Jane's death, leaving him with small children. He was among the list of Freemen in Plymouth in 1633,
and again on 7 March 1636/7; in Duxborrow about 1658 and again in Plymouth on May 1670. He was on
various committees and held several offices from the years 1637 to 1662. He, like the other early
Colonials, was granted additional lands through the years. In 1675/6 Experience and Edward Mitchell
were were appointed by the Court to investigate the estate of Jacob Michell, deceased, for the good of
his children. Experience, Edward and Joseph Bartlett were later appointed guardians of the children of
Jacob Michell, deceased. Experience's will, dated 5 December 1684 and probated 4 September 1689
names son Edward, wife "mary michell", son John, grandson "Exsperience" [son of John] daughters
Mary Shaw, Sarah Hayward and Hannah Hayward, grandson Thomas Mitchell and granddaughter mary
michel whom he leaves in the care of his son Edward and Joseph Bartlet. His residence is given as
Bridgewater. (See will) Parents: Thomas MITCHELL and Maria TROMDIN .
He was married to Jane COOKE after 22 May 1627 in Plymouth Colony, MA. (2117) htm>(2118) Notes:

Rosser, Mayflower Increasings: "m. aft. 22 May 1627, Plymouth,
Experience Mitchell . . ."

This date reflects that she was still single in the May 22, 1627 Division of Land.


Rosser: There is much controversy over the children of the two marriages of Experience Mitchell: "
MFIP (Mayflower Families In Progress) , Cook:3 states Elizabeth Mitchell was b. 1628 and Thomas
Mitchell c 1631. These two have been accepted by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants as
Jane Cooke's. Since Thomas was the only Mitchell child known to have received land from grandfather
Francis Cook, doubt is cast on the remaining Mitchell children who were born later than Thomas."


Ralph Wood takes exception, however, in his MF5G:12 volume, 1996, and includes Mary "presumed,
quite safely, as a daughter of Jane, based on Mary's approximate date of birth.". Mary is born about 1632
, presuming Jane married about 20. There is then a near 10-year span before the rest of Experience's
children are born, presumably, by his second wife, Mary,.

Another observation is that if Jane died very
early in their marriage, Experience was left with near infant children--quite a hardship in any event, and
especially so in those days. Many such men would hasten to find a new wife and mother for such small
children, and female companionship for themselves, however, Experience doesn't remarry until 1640/1.

Children were: Elizabeth (3) MITCHELL , Thomas[3] MITCHELL , Mary MITCHELL
.

He was married to Mary before 1641 in Plymouth, MA?.(2119)

The Cooke volume logs this as the date of his first child by his second wife, Mary. Children were: Sarah
MITCHELL , Jacob MITCHELL , Edward MITCHELL , John MITCHELL
, Hannah MITCHELL .

Jane COOKE was born abt 1604 (probably) in Probably Leyden,Holland. (601) (602)
(603) No absolute birth or death records have yet been found for Jane, and
as can be seen there are some prior discrepancies on her birth date. The most recent and exhaustive
Cooke study suggests a 1604 date, and the rationale for this date assumption. She died after 1631, prior
to 1640 in Plymouth, MA. (604) (605) (606) Her latest
suggested death date as Experience remarries in this year, though it is noted that she was certainly
dead before Bradford prepared his accounting of Mayflower families Parents: Francis COOKE Mayflower
and Hester LE MAHIEU .
She was married to Experience (1) MITCHELL after 22 May 1627 in Plymouth Colony, MA.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 467
Page 468

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

SERVICE

Francis Cook, 17th Signer of the Mayflower Compact, born in England ca. 1583, died in Plymouth, Mass.,
April 7, 1663, and was buried in the old Plymouth Burying Ground. He married at Leyden Holland, to
Hester Mahieu. "King Philip's War," August 28, 1676, Francis Cook, Credit 2, items 04-04-04. He was

freeman, 1633; a member of Myles Standish's Company, 1643, and in the expedition against the Indians;
on a committee to lay out roads in Plymouth. His will of 1659 names his wife, Hester, and son, John,
executors. An agreement of the heirs in June 1666, shows the surviving children were John, Jacob,
Hester Wright and Mary Thompson.

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the

Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,
Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.

The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)

Death: 7 April 1663, Plymouth.
Children: John, unnamed child buried in Leiden, Jane, Elizabeth, Jacob, Hester, and Mary.

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is probable he was
born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He married Hester le Mahieu on 20
July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury,
England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage
occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living
there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards. His wife Hester
was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland in the first place is unknown: religious
persecution of Protestants in England did not really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In
1606, the Cookes left Leiden and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but
returned to have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife
Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and
better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne
.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a number of minor
committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and received some minor appointments by
the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's
jury that examined the body of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother
Alice. He received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be about 80
years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years and perhaps longer.

Jane married Experience Mitchell in Aug 1627. Experience was born about 1602 in England. He died in 1689.

Taken from http://www.mayflowerfamilies.com/cooke/d27.htm#P21 on August 10, 2005 -

Experience (1) MITCHELL was born about 1602 in England?. (2113) Wood MF5G:12,
indicates that Experience's ancestry remains unknown, with a possible connection with a Thomas
Mitchell of England. He immigrated in Aug 1623 to Plymouth Colony, MA. (2114)
Experience came on the ship Anne. He died between 1685 and 1689 in Plymouth, MA.(2115) htm> (2116)

EXPERIENCE MITCHELL'S inventory was taken 14 May, 1689, and his will
was proved 4 September, 1689; therefore the date of the will, 5 December, 1689, as recorded by the
clerk, Samuel Sprague, is doubtless an error. The will must have been made on 5 December in the year
1688, or possibly even earlier.

The will and inventory are recorded in the Plymouth County Probate
Records, Volume 1, pages 44 and 45. The wife Mary mentioned in the will was a second wife, the first
one having been Jane2

According to MF5G:12: Experience was among several single men in the
colony, and he, together with five other unmarried young men, were listed in the Division of Cattle along
with Francis Cooke and his family--thus probably living with them at the time.

Mitchell, Experience


Experience Mitchell arrived in Plymouth in 1623 on the Anne, and Banks writes that he was from Duke's
Place, London. Underhill (Small Descendants, 1:510), based in part on Dexter (p. 625), thought
Experience was the son of Thomas Mitchell of Cambridge, England, who was a member of Francis
Johnson's church at Amsterdam, and that Experience was born in Leiden in 1611.

Experience received
a letter dated 24 July 1662 from his nephew Thomas Mitchell in Amsterdam in which Thomas mentions
having received Experience's letter dated 23 April 1661, and says, "I do also wish my cousin Elizabeth
much joy with her [p.328] daughter that God has given her to her six sons. I do also wish my cousin
Sarah much joy in her married estate" (PN&Q 3:102-03).

Experience was a Purchaser and was on the
1633 freeman list. He later moved to Duxbury, where he became a highway surveyor on 3 March 1639/
40 (PCR 1:141); he also served on various juries (PCR, passim). On 7 June 1659 he was fined ten
shillings for refusing to serve on the grand jury (PCR 3:168).

He married, probably not long after the
1627 cattle division, Jane Cooke, daughter of 1620 Mayflower passenger Francis Cooke; though there is
no record of their marriage, their son Thomas Mitchell in a deed of 1 August 1672 refers to some land
given him by his grandfather Francis Cooke (MD 3:104).

By his first wife Jane, Mitchell had Thomas
and Elizabeth, but indirect evidence indicates that the rest of his children, with the exception of Mary,
perhaps, were probably by his second wife Mary _____. See John B. Threlfall, "Comments on the Two
Wives of Experience Mitchell of Plymouth, Mass.," NEHGR 127:94; Robert S. Wakefield, "Not All the
Children of Experience Mitchell Are Mayflower Descendants," TAG 59:28; and Barbara L. Merrick, "
Some Descendants of Francis Cooke, Mayflower Passenger," MQ 49:130. Also see Merton Taylor
Goodrich, "Gaining Experience—A Problem in the Mitchell Family," TAG 12:193.

In his will, dated 5
December 1684, inventory 14 May 1689, Mitchell named his wife Mary; sons Edward and John;
grandsons Experience and Thomas; granddaughter Mary Mitchell; and daughters Mary Shaw, Sarah
Hayward, and Hannah Hayward (MD 32:97). His daughter Elizabeth, who married John Washburn, and
his son Jacob, who married Susanna Pope, predeceased him.

In 1631 Experience sells his dwelling
house, garden plot and fence, leading to the speculation that this may have been the approximate date
of Jane's death, leaving him with small children. He was among the list of Freemen in Plymouth in 1633,
and again on 7 March 1636/7; in Duxborrow about 1658 and again in Plymouth on May 1670. He was on
various committees and held several offices from the years 1637 to 1662. He, like the other early
Colonials, was granted additional lands through the years. In 1675/6 Experience and Edward Mitchell
were were appointed by the Court to investigate the estate of Jacob Michell, deceased, for the good of
his children. Experience, Edward and Joseph Bartlett were later appointed guardians of the children of
Jacob Michell, deceased. Experience's will, dated 5 December 1684 and probated 4 September 1689

names son Edward, wife "mary michell", son John, grandson "Exsperience" [son of John] daughters
Mary Shaw, Sarah Hayward and Hannah Hayward, grandson Thomas Mitchell and granddaughter mary
michel whom he leaves in the care of his son Edward and Joseph Bartlet. His residence is given as
Bridgewater. (See will) Parents: Thomas MITCHELL and Maria TROMDIN .
He was married to Jane COOKE after 22 May 1627 in Plymouth Colony, MA. (2117) htm>(2118) Notes:

Rosser, Mayflower Increasings: "m. aft. 22 May 1627, Plymouth,
Experience Mitchell . . ."

This date reflects that she was still single in the May 22, 1627 Division of Land.


Rosser: There is much controversy over the children of the two marriages of Experience Mitchell: "
MFIP (Mayflower Families In Progress) , Cook:3 states Elizabeth Mitchell was b. 1628 and Thomas
Mitchell c 1631. These two have been accepted by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants as
Jane Cooke's. Since Thomas was the only Mitchell child known to have received land from grandfather
Francis Cook, doubt is cast on the remaining Mitchell children who were born later than Thomas."


Ralph Wood takes exception, however, in his MF5G:12 volume, 1996, and includes Mary "presumed,
quite safely, as a daughter of Jane, based on Mary's approximate date of birth.". Mary is born about 1632
, presuming Jane married about 20. There is then a near 10-year span before the rest of Experience's
children are born, presumably, by his second wife, Mary,.

Another observation is that if Jane died very
early in their marriage, Experience was left with near infant children--quite a hardship in any event, and
especially so in those days. Many such men would hasten to find a new wife and mother for such small
children, and female companionship for themselves, however, Experience doesn't remarry until 1640/1.

Children were: Elizabeth (3) MITCHELL , Thomas[3] MITCHELL , Mary MITCHELL
.

He was married to Mary before 1641 in Plymouth, MA?.(2119)

The Cooke volume logs this as the date of his first child by his second wife, Mary. Children were: Sarah
MITCHELL , Jacob MITCHELL , Edward MITCHELL , John MITCHELL
, Hannah MITCHELL .

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to

London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

Page 467
Page 468

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

Francis Cook, 17th Signer of the Mayflower Compact, born in England ca. 1583, died in Plymouth, Mass.,
April 7, 1663, and was buried in the old Plymouth Burying Ground. He married at Leyden Holland, to

on a committee to lay out roads in Plymouth. His will of 1659 names his wife, Hester, and son, John,
executors. An agreement of the heirs in June 1666, shows the surviving children were John, Jacob,
Hester Wright and Mary Thompson.

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the
Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,
Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.

The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)
II--Jacob, b. in Leyden; m. Damaris Hopkins.
III--Jane, b. .........; m. 1628, Experiance Mitchell.
IV--Esther, b. .........; m. 1644, Richard Wright.
V--Mary, b. 1626, in Plymouth; m. John Thompson.

descendants of Edward Doty, from his various children. [Note: The volume for his

Death: 23 August 1655, Plymouth. Children (all by Faith): Edward, John, Thomas,
Samuel, Desire, Elizabeth, Isaac, Joseph, and Mary.
Biographical Summary
Edward Doty's English origins have not yet been discovered. Some sources claim he
was baptized on 14 May 1598 in either Dudlick, Shropshire or "Thurburton Hills",
Suffolk. I have investigated these in English records, and found both to be complete


hoaxes.
However, there is a real Edward Doty baptized on 3 November 1600 at East Halton,
Lincolnshire, England, son of Thomas Doty. The Doty families of East Halton are
regularly using the names Thomas, Edward, and John: the first three names
Mayflower passenger Edward Doty assigned to his first three children. Even if this
particular Edward Doty is not the Mayflower passenger himself, I strongly suspect the
true Mayflower passenger will be found amongst this general Lincolnshire Doty family.
Edward Doty came on the Mayflower in 1620 as a servant to Stephen Hopkins and
was apparently still a servant in 1623 when the Division of Land was held, indicating
he was under the age of 25 during that time. He signed the Mayflower Compact in
November 1620, so he was likely over 21 at the time. This narrows his likely birth date
to around 1597-1599.
Edward Doty married twice, according to William Bradford. However, nothing is known
of his first wife. His second wife, Faith Clarke, came on the ship Francis in April 1634
with father Thurston Clarke, and they were married the following January in Plymouth.
Edward Doty appears to have been somewhat of a troublemaker throughout his life at
Plymouth. In June 1621, he engaged in a sword and dagger duel with fellow Hopkins
servant Edward Leister; both were wounded before being separated, and were
punished by having their head and feet tied together for an hour (it was supposed to
have been for a whole day, but they were let go early because of their apparent
suffering). Edward Doty made regular appearances in Plymouth Colony Court, as can
be seen by the table below summarizing some of his court records:
1632/3 Sued by Joseph Rogers, failed to pay a contract with six pigs, as had been
agreed. Rogers won.
1632/3 Sued by William Bennet for dealing fraudulently in a trade of bacon for beaver
skins. Bennet won.
1633 Sued by William Bennet for slander. Doty fined 50 shillings.
1633/4 Sued by his apprentice John Smith to be freed from his 10-year contract. Court
agreed, and required Doty to give him double payment in apparel for having given so
little to his apprentice.
1633/4 Fined 6 shillings 8 pence for "breaking the peace", and awarded Josias Cooke
3 shillings 4 pence because Doty caused him to bleed during their fight.
1634 Doty sued Francis Sprague over a debt: Doty won 6 shillings 6 pence, plus a
peck of malt.
1636 Edward Doty and Joseph Beedle sue and counter-sue for "matters beign raw
and imperfect" and were sent to an arbitrator.
1637/8 Fined 10 shillings for breaking the peace, by assaulting George Clarke.
1641 Sued George Allen. Reason and outcome unrecorded.
1641/2 Sued Thurston Clarke. Doty awarded 12 bushels and 1 peck of Indian corn,
and 12 shillings money or an additional 4 bushes of corn, plus 11 shillings for charges.
John Jenny then entered an attachment to receive 31 shillings 6 pence from Clarke
before it was paid to Doty, of which the court ordered him to then pay Doty five and a
half bushels of Indian corn and 3 pence to settle the account.
1641/2 Court orders Edward Doty to keep his two cows and a steer fenced in during
the summer, or pay Thomas Symons for all damage caused by his cows in Symons'
cornfield.
1641/2 Sued George Clark. Doty awarded four bushels of Indian corn.
1643 Doty ordered to pay five bushels of Indian corn to John Groome, for Manessah
Kempton's use.
1647 Samuel Cutbert sued Edward Doty for taking wood from his land. Doty ordered
to pay 7 shillings damages plus court fees.


1650 Edward Gray and Samuel Cutbert sue Edward Doty for damage done by his
cows to their corn. Doty ordered to pay 1 bushel of Indian corn to each.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the
Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,
Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.



The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)
II--Jacob, b. in Leyden; m. Damaris Hopkins.
III--Jane, b. .........; m. 1628, Experiance Mitchell.

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is probable he was

born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He married Hester le Mahieu on 20
July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury,
England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage
occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living
there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards. His wife Hester
was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland in the first place is unknown: religious
persecution of Protestants in England did not really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In
1606, the Cookes left Leiden and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but
returned to have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife
Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and
better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne
.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a number of minor
committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and received some minor appointments by
the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's
jury that examined the body of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother
Alice. He received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be about 80
years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years and perhaps longer.

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the
Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,
Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.

The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)
II--Jacob, b. in Leyden; m. Damaris Hopkins.
III--Jane, b. .........; m. 1628, Experiance Mitchell.
IV--Esther, b. .........; m. 1644, Richard Wright.
V--Mary, b. 1626, in Plymouth; m. John Thompson.

FRANCIS COOK, MAYFLOWER PASSENGER Francis Cook was born in England about 1583. He went
to Leyden, Holland, where he was married June 30, 1603. The marriage record at Leyden reads: "
Francis Cook, wool comber, unmarried, from England, with Hester Mayhieu, unmarried, from Canterbury,
Eng., accompanied by Jennie Mayhieu, her mother, and Jennie Mayhieu, her sister." The Mayhieus were
Walloons and Huguenots. Francis and his son John were on the Speedwell when it sailed from
Delfshaven, July 20, 1620, with some of the Pilgrims bound for America. At Southampton they joined the
Mayflower and set sail on August 5. The Speedwell began to leak, but although the ships put into
Dartmouth for repairs and sailed again August 21, new leaks compelled the Speedwell to return to
London, with such immigrants as could not be taken in the Mayflower,

which then went on alone. Francis and his son were on the Mayflower, and he was the seventeenth
signer of the Mayflower Compact. His son John was living in 1694, probably the oldest male survivor of
the Mayflower. His wife, Hester, and the rest of their children, came in the Ann in 1623. Winslow
recorded "The wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as
she came from the French, by virtue of the communion of church."

Biographical Summary
Francis Cooke was born about 1583. His origins have not been discovered, but it is probable he was
born in England, perhaps from the Canterbury or Norwich areas. He married Hester le Mahieu on 20
July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury,
England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage
occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living
there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards. His wife Hester
was a French Walloon. What brought Francis to Holland in the first place is unknown: religious
persecution of Protestants in England did not really begin until after King James took power in 1604. In
1606, the Cookes left Leiden and went to Norwich, Norfolk for a time (for what reason is not known), but
returned to have their first son, John, baptized at the French church in Leiden, sometime between
January and March, 1607. In Holland, Cooke took up the profession of a woolcomber.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife
Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and
better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship Anne
.

Francis lived out his life in Plymouth. Although he kept a fairly low profile, he was on a number of minor
committees such as the committee to lay out the highways, and received some minor appointments by
the Court to survey or lay out land. He was a juror on a number of occasions, and was on the coroner's
jury that examined the body of Martha Bishop, the 4-year old daughter who was murdered by her mother
Alice. He received some modest land grants at various times throughout his life. He lived to be about 80
years old, dying in 1663; his wife Hester survived him by at least three years and perhaps longer.

COOKE FRANCIS COOKE, Pilgrim ancestor of this family in America was born in Blythe, Yorkshire,
England, about 1583, and came to New England on the Mayflower, 1620. The town or parish of Blythe
adjoins Austerfield the home of William Bradford, and Francis Cooke, doubtless had as neighbors, the
band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he himself had gone to Leyden. Six
years before the Pilgrims came to Leyden, Francis Cooke was married there to Hester Mahieu. The
record of their marriage was entered in June, 1603, and reads, "Francis Cooke, woolcomber, unmarried,
from England, accompanied by Philip de Vean, and Raphael Roelandt, his acquaintances, and Hester
Mahieu, her mother and Jeannie Mahieu, her sister, were married by the Civil Magistrate." When the
Pilgrim colony surreptitiously left England in 1608, their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a
nonconformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam but becoming
dissatisfied with the conduct of the church there, sought a new place of refuge in Leyden. Hester Mahieu
was of French blood and doubtless a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury, in
England, where the name was numerous in this parish. She did not cross in the Mayflower, with her
husband and eldest son, but came two years later on the Ann, bringing her younger children with her
and in the company of Mistress Warren and her daughters. Francis Cooke was one of the sterling
characters among the noted band of Pilgrims who signed the famous compact in Cape Cod Harbor on
November 11, 1620. He was with those sent out to seek a suitable landing place and in the cruises of
discovery there were found several places with which his name was later associated. With his son, John,
who came with him in the Mayflower, he soon began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the little
village they were building, which had been named Leyden street, and there built a log cabin for the
reception of his family waiting in Leyden to cross the seas to him. In the first division of cattle, 1627,
Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, with ten others drew the first choice. In 1650, Bradford
wrote of him "Francis Cooke is still living and hath seen his children's children have children." He lived
fifteen years after the memoranda by Bradford, and died in Plymouth, April 7, 1665.

The children of Francis and Hester (Maiheu) Cooke, of whom there is record, were:
I--JOHN, b. about 1612. (See following.)
II--Jacob, b. in Leyden; m. Damaris Hopkins.
III--Jane, b. .........; m. 1628, Experiance Mitchell.
IV--Esther, b. .........; m. 1644, Richard Wright.
V--Mary, b. 1626, in Plymouth; m. John Thompson.
