Generation: 4

  1. 10.  Francis COOKE was born Aft Aug 1583, England; died 07 Apr 1663, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Other Events:

    • Birth: Abt 1583, England

    Notes:

    In 1620, Francis and son John embarked on the Mayflower, leaving behind his wife and younger children (who would come later when the Colony was more settled).

    Excerpt from "Certain Comeoverers": Francis Cooke was born about 1583 in Blythe, Yorkshire. Blythe adjoins Austerfield and doubtless Francis Cooke knew the young lad William Bradford and had as neighbors the band of yeomen who formed the church of Scrooby some years after he, himself, had gone to foreign parts and settled in Leyden. What took him to Leyden we may not know. He was certainly there in 1603, six years before the Pilgrims came thither, since the record of his marriage in Leyden was entered in June, 1603. It 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 magistrates. That his sponsors were Dutchmen and that he married a Walloon would indicate that Francis Cooke was without compatriots in Leyden. When his old neighbors surreptitiously left England in 1608 their plan was to settle in Amsterdam where a non-conformist English church was already established. They went to Amsterdam, but becoming dissatisfied with the conduct of the church sought a new place of refuge. That they went to Leyden may have been at Francis Cooke's suggestion.
    Governor Winslow, in his Hypocrisies Unmasked says, "also the wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloon holds communion with the Church at Plymouth as she came from the French." It may be that she had been a member of the Huguenot Walloon church at Canterbury in England, the name Mahieu being a common name in that parish. She did not cross on the Mayflower with her husband and eldest son, coming two years later on the Ann with her younger children in company with Mistress Warren and her children.
    Francis Cooke was one of the sterling characters among the notable band of Pilgrims who signed the famous Compact in Cape Cod Harbor on November 11, 1620. He was among those who were sent out to seek a suitable landing place, and in the cruises of discovery there were found several places with which his name has since been associated. Soon after the landing was made at Plymouth, it is recorded that Francis Cooke was at work with Myles Standish in the woods "and coming back to the settlement for something to eat they left their tooles behind them but before they returned their tooles were taken away by the savages." This was the first evidence of the existence of Indians in the neighborhood of Plymouth which the Mayflower Pilgrims experienced. Through the kindly services of Samoset the tools were subsequently returned. Francis Cooke and his son John at once began to clear a lot of land on the main street of the village, which was called Leyden Street, between Edward Winslow's and Isaac Allerton's, and there built a log cabin for the reception of the rest of the family awaiting in Leyden a summons to cross the seas. Afterward Francis Cooke lived at "Cook's Hollow" on the Jones River, a place later known as Rocky Nook, within the present confines of Kingston.
    One of the most interesting of the earlier records of Plymouth concerns the division of cattle in June, 1627. The entire population of the little community, even to the last baby of only a few months of age, is listed and divided into groups of thirteen persons each, and to each group is allotted some one or more animals. Francis Cooke, his wife Hester, and his son John, assigned to them "one lot, the least of the four black heyfers came in the Jacob and two shee goats." It is to be hoped that the heifer proved to be a good milker in time, and that meanwhile sustenance of their thirteen owners. It seems probable that Franics had acquired a somewhat larger herd of livestock by 1634, since in that year he "presented" certain persons for "abusing his cattle." In 1633 he was made a freeman, and paid a tax of eighteen shillings. He acted as surveyor of highways and in other minor arbitrator or ref3ree. There are occasional references to Francis Cooke in the records until about 1648 when he appears to have ceased to be publicly active. William Bradford writes in 1650" "Francis Cooke is still living, a very old man and hath seen his children's children have children; after his wife came over (with other of his children) he hath three still living by her, all married, and have five children; so their increase is eight. And his son John which came over with him is married, and hath four children living." Bradford gives rather an exaggerated statement of the age of Francis Cooke, since he was under seventy at the time. He lived for fifteen years after the above memorandum was written by Bradford, and died April 7, 1665.

    • Fact: 22 Jan 1679, Inventory taken.

    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Mayflower Families - George Soule": The will of George Soule Sr. of Duxberry dated 11 Aug. 1677, with codicil dated 20 Sept. 1677, and inventory 22 Ja. 1679, gave lands in Dartmouth to sons Nathaniel and "Gorge"; mentions lands in "Middleberry" formerly given to daughters Elizabeth and Patience; names daughters Susanna and Mary; eldest son John tohave the remainder of his housing and lands. The codicil warned son John that if he disturbed daughter Patience, then Patience was to have the house and lands at Duxburrow. The account of John Soule mentions "since my mother died which was three yeer the last December."

    Excerpt from "the Mayflower Quarterly" Sept. 2009: The more promising candidate to date would seem to be the George Soule of tingrith, baptized in February 1594/5. Although just a tad older than should be expected for a servant, an unusual clause in his father's will preventing his small inheritance payment until the age of 26 ( in 1621) might be an explantation, and his brother William may have ended up in the "Mayflower" hot-bed parish of Henlow. It was also shown that, contrary to previously published accounts, George Soule of tingrith was not the same man as the George Soule of Flitwick - and, as a result, his wehreabouts as an adult cannot be accounted for in Bedfordshire records.

    Name:
    He was a servant of Edward Winslow of Plymouth, probably indentured for seven years. He served as a volunteer for the Pequot War (1637).

    According to Francis R. Stoddard in "The Truth About The Pilgrims" page 150, "George Soule came as a servant ofEdward Winslow. He was the 35th signer of the Mayflower compact. He was born about 1600 and is credited to the London contingent. He was the son of John Soule of Eckington, Worcestershire, England. Robert Soule of the family was a London salter. Droitwich, where Edward Winslow as born, was a salt mining place and connected with the salters company of London. This last may have brought George Soule and Edward Winslow together. George Soule married Mary Becket before 1627. His autograph has been preserved."

    George married Marie BECKET 29 Mar 1935, Duxbury, Plymouth, Ma. Marie (daughter of Sylvester BECKETT and Elizabeth HILL) was born , England; was christened 31 Jul 1623; died 16 Dec 1676, Duxbury, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts; was buried , Duxbury, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts. [Group Sheet]
