    the only child I'm confident of is Mary who married Thomas Booth. From Douglas Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry - "Thomas Booth...married Mary Cooke, daughter of Mordecai Cooke, Gent., Frances, daughter of William Ironmonger."

    From Mordecai's profile: "...Mordecai and Frances Ironmonger Cooke were the parents of the following known children: Giles Cooke, Susannah Cooke, Mordecai Cooke, John Cooke, Mary Cooke, Elizabeth Cooke and Frances Cooke." (citing Find a Grave)

    Stubbs lists 5 children (Mordecai, John, Frances, Mary, & Susannah).

    There are references to several Thomas Cookes, but nothing that indicates Frances & Mordecai had a son named Thomas (the latest profile to be attached as a child).

    update: merge completed

    Ironmonger-1 and Ironmonger-87 appear to represent the same person because: Ironmonger-87 had been attached to the wrong family and given an incorrect birth year. Those errors have been corrected & she can now be merged with Ironmonger-1. Thanks!
