"Thomas Cooke of Rhode Island"
Jane Fletcher Fiske
Boxford, MA, 1987; p35
"John Cooke alias Butcher, son of Thomas Cooke alias Butcher, was baptized 30 March 1630
in the parish church of St. Mary, Netherbury, Dorset, England, and died, as John Cook, 16 May
1691 at Portsmouth, R.I., probably of smallpox. He married, probably about 1652, Mary Borden,
daughter of Richard and Joan (Fowle) Borden. She was baptized in the parish of Cranbrook,
Kent, England, on 13 January 1632/3 and died 23 December 1690 at Portsmouth."
Crapo, Henry Howland
New Bedford, Mass.: E. Anthony & Sons, 1912; p.251
"...John Cook, the son of Thomas, was also a butcher. He is said to have
been born in 1631. In 1655 he was admitted as a freeman. ...He died in
1691, and in his will, which is dated the same year, he calls himself
"aged," and "considering the sore visitation of small-pox wherewith many
are now visited and many have been taken away" deems it wise to arrange
his worldly affairs."
