Notes for Vicar William Cooke
“Rev. COOKE received his BA on Nov. 3, 1582 and MA on Jul. 22, 1587 from Magdalen College, Oxford. He became a fellow of Magdalen College, and on Sep. 20, 1595 was chosen to be vicar of the church of Crediton, Devonshire. Since Magdalen College fellows were not permitted to marry, he resigned the position prior to his marriage in 1598... (Will) names wife Martha, son Nathaniel, and daughters Elizabeth, Susan, Mary and Martha. Also named was "Mr. John White, my father in lawe," and an overseer was "Brother-in-law, Mr. John White, preacher in Dorchester.”” (Stephen Lawson,, ref Search for Mary and John [544])
Notes for Martha White
Her brother was Reverend John White, who was a founder of Dorchester, MA. John signed a pedigree that showed the marriage of his sister Martha to William Cooke. The will of her sister Martha names Elizabeth Cooke Walton as her niece and Martha as her sister. The will was dated 5 Oct 1637 and recorded at Canterbury. [604]
