Captain Thomas Cooke Jr.

1Jane Fletcher Fiske 1930, Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island: a genealogy of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher, J.F. Fiske, c1987 , Page 25, 27. "Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island: a genealogy of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher of Netherbury, Dorsetshire, England, who came to Taunton, Massachusetts in 1637 and settled in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in 1643 by Jane Fletcher Fiske.". "2. THOMAS COOKE, called Captain, son of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher and his first wife, probably Mary ~———w-,as born in England about 1626 and died at Portsmouth, R.l. in 1669 or 1670. Record of his baptism has not been found, and it is thought that this may well have occurred in the home parish of his mother, where his parents were probably married. It was probably not too far from Netherbury, Dorset, where his father was baptized in 1600 and his younger brother John in 1630.

He married ca. 1648 THOMASIN , whose maiden name has not been learned. She died at Portsmouth in 1670, probably in early October.

It is known that there was a very old free school in Netherbury, and it appears that Thomas did have the advantage of some education. He was able to sign his name to documents, and his widow's inventory included a few books. His younger brother, John, on the other hand, who was too young when the family left England to have learned to write, used a mark throughout his life.

Thomas was undoubtedly one of the three unnamed children who left Weymouth, Dorset, on the ship Speedewell with their parents in April 1637 to settle in Taunton, in Plymouth Colony. The first mention of him, as Thomas Cooke, Jr., is found in a list of able-bodied men between 16 and 60 taken in August 1643 (Shurt1eff, Records _o_ffle Colony 9_f_Igw Plymouth, p. 195). He probably moved to Portsmouth, Rhode Island with the rest of his family in 1643, and on 4 September 1648 the Town Council gave him 30 acres next to the land of his father (Early Records 9; Portsmouth,
p. 38).

The earmark of the cattle of Thomas Cooke Jun'r, recorded 9 March 1667/8 as of twenty years standing, was a crop on the left ear and a slit in the crop, and a hole in the right ear (ibid., 276).

He was called Captain, the title deriving probably from militia, or trained band, service, and from dealings with the Indians. There is nothing whatever to indicate that he was a sea captain. Captain Thomas Cooke was among the men who signed an agreement at Newport 10 March 1656/7 to purchase Conanicut Island [Jamestown] from the Indians. His name was down for 1/111th part, his brother John's for 1/250th (R. 1. Archives).

On 8 April 1656 he was chosen as one of seven men to "goe over to the mayne [i.e. the mainland, across the Sakonnet River in Plymouth Colony] to treat with the Indian Sachems to informe them of the mynd of the towne that they Come not upon the Iland but accordinge to order given" (ibid., 70).

On 24 June 1656 "Capt. Thomas Cooke being chosen by the towne of Portsmouth for juror with Mr. Richard Burden and not apearinge at the court" [General Court of Trials to be held at Providence], he was fined ten shillings. He must have had a valid excuse, for his fine was remitted at the next court. (Rhode Island Court Records, Record of Court of Trials of the Colony 1647 - 1662, 1:19 Early Records of Portsmouth p. 72).

...
(Page 27 bottom paragraph)
On 27 April 1664 Capt. Cooke was chosen one of four deputies to serve at the General Court to be held at Newport. In October 1665 and again a year later he was picked for petit jury duty. On 17 October 1667 he was chosen with his brother John as grand jurymen for the Court of Trials, and again on 16 October 1668. He served at this Court, which adjourned 5 November 1668, and this is the last mention of him alive that has been discovered (ibid., 125, 130, 136, 139, 143). In October 1669, John Cooke alone was picked for jury duty." Image.

Chaplin Cook

1Jane Fletcher Fiske 1930, Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island: a genealogy of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher, J.F. Fiske, c1987 , pg 117. "Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island: a genealogy of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher of Netherbury, Dorsetshire, England, who came to Taunton, Massachusetts in 1637 and settled in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in 1643 by Jane Fletcher Fiske.". "CHAPLIN4 COOK, son of Thomas Cook [22] and his wife Mary Cory, was born at Tiverton probably ca. 1707 and died there in June 1739.

He married at Tiverton, 24 November 1733, HANNAH TALLMAN, daughter of Dr. John and Anne (Bennett) Tallman, who was born 15 November 1715 at Tiverton and died probably in Dutchess County, N.Y. She married, second, at Tiverton, 7 August 1740, Daniel Chase, son of Phineas and Desire (Wing) Chase, born 9 January 1720. Hannah is named in the will of her father as Hannah Chase, his second daughter (Bristol Co. Probate 10:95). She is said to have had ten children by her second marriage, born at Quaker Hill, Dutchess County, N.Y. (TAG 29:41).

Chaplin was apparently named for Francis Chaplin, the first husband of his mother's half-sister, Joan Timberlake, who died in Jamaica 19 February 1704/5 (Portsmouth TC 6c Probate 1:7).

Thomas Cook named his wife Mary and son Chaplin executors of his will; on 21 June 1726 Chaplin Cook signed his name to the bond, along with his mother, Richard Borden and John Tallman (Bristol Co. Probate File, not numbered).

Chaplin evidently was found dead of unknown cause, for an inquest was held on 30 June 1739 to view the body and determine the means of death.

Hannah Cook of Tiverton was appointed administratrix of the estate of her late husband 17 July 1739; an inventory of the goods and chattels and credits of Chaplin Cook, yeoman, was taken 20 July by Capt. Robert Bennit, Stephen Cook and Samuel Durfee. It included silver buttons, one silver spoon, 105 sheep and lambs, 3 cows, 2 calfs, a steer and a young mare, 11 swine, 15 geese, and ordinary tools and
household articles. The real estate was valued at £900, the personal at £429:12:3. An accounting signed 19 May 1741 by Hannah Chase requested allowance "for Indian Corn and English Graine which I bought and used in the family," and for "flower and Cheese 6: Mollasses" and "Necessary Utensils for house keeping."

On 21 April 1741 Stephen Cook, yeoman of Tiverton, was appointed guardian of Mary Cook, under 14 years, daughter of Chaplin Cook late of Tiverton, deceased. Then, at the request of the mother Hannah Chase, Stephen was appointed guardian also of Thomas Cook, under 14 years, son of the late Chaplin Cook. Robert Bennet and Daniel Chase were bondsmen with Stephen Cook (Bristol County Probate file, not numbered, and 9:228,249; 10:13,31).
