John Cook

1Jane Fletcher Fiske 1930, Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island: a genealogy of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher, J.F. Fiske, c1987 , pg 106. "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.". "JOHN4 COOK, son of Joseph Cook [21] and his wife Susanna Briggs, was born 27 February 1693/4 at Portsmouth, R.I. and died by drowning 29 August 1740. He and MARY SLOCUM, daughter of Giles and Anne (Borden) Slocum, were given clearance 30 April 1728 by the Newport Monthly Meeting of Friends to marry, "notwithstanding they are so nearly related they being children of first cozens," and they were married 15 May 1728 at Portsmouth. Mary was born 7, 12th month 1708/9 and died _after 1757 when she signed as a witness to the marriage of her daughter Anne. She married, second, 7 May 1745, David Palmer of Portsmouth.

John Cook was constable in Portsmouth 14 March 1719 when he was voted five shillings for his trouble in serving warrants. He was probably the John Cook of Portsmouth, husbandman, sued by Gideon Freeborn of Portsmouth, yeoman, who claimed that on 31 January 1736 he had struck him, breaking the little finger of his right hand. The affray, as one of the witnesses called it, took place at the house of
John Freeborn in Portsmouth. Verdict was for the defendant. In a reverse suit, Cook sued Freeborn, and in November 1737 depositions were taken from Barnet Sisson, William Coggeshall, Jr., John Albro, John Coggeshall, William Cornell and George Cornell, describing the fight: "Cook said to Freeborn, ‘you have bit my thumb and finger and tore my lip"'; "Cook said he would not strip to fight with no such sorry Rascal," and "Freeborn first threw Cook but Cook soon got upermost and said '1 don't care if your Neck is Brock, I should not be ye means of setting it‘ the Landlady with her Negro separated them." Verdict again was for Cook, and Freeborn withdrew his application for damages and paid court costs (Newport County Court of Common Pleas, Nov. 1737).

R.I. Friends Records relate that John Cook "departed this life 29, 6th month 1740 [0.S.: August], 6th day of the week, and was buried 1st day following in their own ground." He died intestate. The inventory of his estate was approved by the widow Mary Cook on 13 October 1740. It included goods in "the little new house and the old house," one white horse, cordwainer's tools, etc. The town council made request first to the widow, secondly to the father, thirdly to the elder brother, and lastly to the youngest brother, to administer the estate, but all refused; finally on 10 September 1744 at request of the council, administration was granted to Lt. John and Robert Lawton (Portsmouth TC 3:230,232,277; 4:4).

The original accounting of the estate of John Cook has been bound into Portsmouth Town Council Book 3, between pages 272 and 273, undated, signed by John and Robert Lawton. The personal estate totalled £403, "raile estate" £340, and Due to the Colony upon Loan, £65. Included in the accounts paid out is a payment of about £119 to "Jarman Docter."

Mary Palmer, late widow to John Cook late deceased of Portsmouth, was disowned 29, 8th month 1745 by the Friends for having had a child born within four months after marriage, "until she should return by sincere repentance" (R.I. Friends Records, Testimonials of Denial, Newport Historical Society MS 821). The child was evidently her daughter Hannah Palmer, born 8 August 1745.
