    Notes 
    • From The Great Migration Begins, pgs. 467-468, Francis Cooke migrated in 1620 aboard the Mayflower from Leiden, Holland, and resided in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He was made a freeman about 1633.

      Ibid, pg. 470: "In his accounting of the passengers on the Mayflower, Bradford includes 'Francis Cooke and his son John; but his wife and other children came afterwards'; in the summary of these families as of 1651, Bradford tells us that '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 442,446]. Francis Cooke signed the Mayflower Compact.

      "On December 24, 1636, John Harmon contracted to become the apprentice of Francis Cooke for a period of seven years [PCR 1:46].

      "On 7 March 1636/7, Francis Cooke sued John Browne the elder and several others, and on 7 June 1637 Francis Cooke, having sued Mr. John Browne, was granted an execution against him [PCR 1:60, 7:5].

      "'Take notice of our practice at Leyden, viz. that one Samuel Terry was received from the French Church there, into communion with us; also the wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloonem, holds communion with the Church at Plymouth, as she came from the French, to this day, by virtue of communion of churches' [Winslow's Hypocrisie Unmasked in MD 27:64]."
