Thomas Cooke was not married to Mary Havens. She was married to Captain John Cook, his son.

The descendants of Thomas Cook of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, should not depend too much on "Austin" for their genealogical information as the Portsmouth records contradict him in several ways.

Mary Havens is given, by Austin, as the wife of Capt. Thomas Cook, son of Thomas, Sen. On 12 Oct 1670, the Portsmouth Town Council appointed Thomas Cook "eldest son of the afore named Capt. Thomas Cook, to be whole and sole Executor unto the whole Estate of the Sayd Capt. Thomas Cook and the late deceased widow Thomasin Cook ... shall pay unto his brothers: John, George, Stephen and Ebenezer Cook ... unto his sisters, namely Sarah, the wife of Peter Parker, Mary, the wife of Thomas Langford, Elizabeth, Phebe and Martha Cook.

Footnote: National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol 29, P 120 -- corrections.

In 1904 a collection of loose papers was discovered in the cellar of the Portsmouth Town Hall. Among these papers was one written up by G. Andrews Moriarty concerning a verbal will made by Captain Thomas Cooke.

I have uploaded page 29 of Jane Fletcher Fiske's book, THOMAS COOKE OF RHODE ISLAND which explains this in more detail.


Thomas Cooke, called Captain, son of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher and his first wife, probably Mary ---, was born in England about 1626 and died at Portsmouth, R.I. 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.

Cooke-213 and Cook-1090 are not ready to be merged because: Again, these are clearly the same individual. The information in Cook-1090 appears closer to information given in "Thomas Cook of Rhode Island" by Jane Fletcher Fiske, a book I am trying to borrow. I have a couple of questions here that I'd like to get more detail on.

1)The Roman numbering of the Thomases is very confusing and should perhaps be eliminated. Thomas here is given as II, while Fiske lists 3 in the line (Thomas-b. 1570, Thomas-b. ca. 1600, and Thomas b.1626.

2)The last names given for Thomasin (Havens, and Borden) are not supported in the Fiske narrative, but listed as unknown.

If anyone with access to the Fiske book can clarify any of this, I would be most grateful.

Cooke-213 and Cook-793 are not ready to be merged because: While I agree that these represent the same person, there are some inconsistencies that need to be addressed. These are at variance with information given in "Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island" (comp. by Jane Fletcher Fiske, pub. Boxford MA, 1987 - 2v)

While I do not have access to this book, I have seen several summaries of the information in it. I am attempting to borrow the book, as I have several questions:

1)Thomas Cooke is listed as brother of Thomas Cooke IV on Cooke 293 and as Thomas Cooke IV on Cook-793. Fiske lists three Thomases - (Capt. Thomas -1626-1670, Thomas -ca 1600-1677, and Thomas (ca 1570-?). She states that Thomas (1570) was not the son of Thomas and Susan Brand, and that his parents have not been found yet. So the numbering of I - IV is questionable.

2)Thomas’s wife, Thomasin(e) is shown with the last name of Borden. Fiske says that her last name is unknown. Cooke-213 shows both forms of her name.

3)Cook-793 shows Thomas (1626) as father, among others, to Thomas Cook(e) V. Again, the numbering needs to be resolved.

4)Cook-793 lists his dates as 1616-1676. Fiske gives 1626-1670, as in Cooke-213. She also states that Thomas, his wife Thomasin, and his mother Mary LNU all died in 1670 within a few months of each other, possibly of the Plague.

5)Cooke 213 lists Thomas’s mother as Mary Havens, while Cooke-793 lists her name as completely unknown. According to Fiske, Thomas (b.1600) had two wives, both named Mary, but in neither case is the last name known.

As I said, I’m trying to borrow a copy of the book. If anyone has a copy, and can clear up some of these problems, I would be grateful.
