AARON COOK I, Great VI Grandfather of Richard Barton (Twice)

 

(?) Husband of Mary Tripling

Father of William Cook

 

Also Father of Infant William, John, Charles, George, Joseph, Aaron and John

Aaron Cook married sometime before 1723 and he lived at Purton, in Berkeley Parish. He possibly married Mary Tripling on 3rd March 1716 at Wotton under Edge.

The place given for his death was ‘Riddleford’, a hamlet of Purton. Aaron Cook had six children baptised at Berkeley Parish Church between 1723 and 1738 and on each occasion he is described as ‘of Purton’. The first reference to ‘Riddleford’ is on the burial of his son William in 1723.

His son John was buried in 1736, aged ten years, Joseph may have been buried in1760/1, aged twenty-six years and possibly Joseph in 1752 aged twenty-two years.

He was probably buried at Berkeley on 11th December 1748. Mary, wife of Aaron Cook was buried at Berkeley on 15th November 1748.


His children were Great VI Aunts and Uncles:

 

WILLIAM COOK, Great VI Uncle

William Cook was buried on 13th January 1722/3 in Berkeley churchyard aged two years. He was described as the son of Aaron Cook of Riddleford.

 

 

WILLIAM COOK, Great V Grandfather (see further on)

William Cook was baptised on 6h May 1723 at Berkeley Parish Church. He was described as the son of Aaron Cook of Purton.


JOHN COOK, Great VI Uncle

John Cook was baptised on 26th May 1725 at Berkeley Parish Church. He was probably buried on 22nd January 1736/7 in Berkeley churchyard and the register described him as ‘of Riddleford’.


GEORGE COOK, Great VI Uncle

George Cook was baptised on 5th March 1726/7 at Berkeley Parish Church. The register entry states that the family’s abode was at ‘Purton.’


CHARLES COOK, Great VI Uncle

 

Charles was born circa 1727 in Berkeley. He died on 16th September 1769 at the age of forty-two years in Berkeley. Ralph Bigland, in his Gloucestershire Collections’, recorded the following inscription on a headstone in Berkeley churchyard:

‘Charles Cook, of Perton in this Parish, died 16 Sept. 1769, aged 42.’

The headstone comes next to that for the headstone of Aaron Cook (1735-1761) so it is assumed that he is Aaron’s brother. However, no baptism is recorded. He was buried on 18th September 1769 in Berkeley churchyard. His abode is given as ‘Purton’ in the register entry.

His son was a cousin of Aaron Cook II and his brother James Cook, Great V Grandfathers:

 

CHARLES COOK

 

Charles Cook was baptised on 23rd June 1767 in Berkeley Parish Church. The register entry describes Charles as ‘son of Charles Cook of Purton.’

Charles Cook married Sarah Smith by licence at Berkeley on 5th September 1792.

In June 1794, at the time of the baptism of his son, Henry, Charles was a fisherman of Purton

He was buried in Berkeley churchyard on 17th February 1829. The register entry states his abode as ‘Pyrton’ and his age as sixty-one.

Charles Cook, Senior, of Purton, Innkeeper. Will dated 5th February 1829 and proved on 29th August 1829. He left £50 to his son Henry and the remainder to his wife Sarah during her lifetime. Then equally between the rest – His sons Henry, George and Charles Cook junior of Purton, his son Thomas Cook of Arlingham. Also his daughters Keziah Billings, wife of Thomas Billings of Purton, Martha, Eliza and Jane Cook of Purton.

JOSEPH COOK, Great VI Uncle 

Joseph Cook was baptised on 13th March 1729/30 at Berkeley. The register entry stastes the family’s abode as ‘Riddleford’. He was buried in Berkeley churchyard on 27th August 1752 and the register entry states the family’s abode as ‘Purton.’


AARON COOK, Great VI Uncle

 

Aaron Cook was baptised on 3rd August 1734 at Berkeley Parish Church. The register entry states the family’s abode as ‘Purton.’ He probably died on 14th February 1761 aged twenty-six years. Bigland includes his memorial inscription in his survey of Berkeley Churchyard, ‘Aaron Cook, son of Aaron Cook, of Riddleford in this Parish died 14 Feb. 1761, aged 26.’ The register records that Aaron Cook of Riddleford was buried on 16th February (1760/1).

 

 

JOHN COOK, Great VI Uncle

 

John Cook was born on 28th April 1738 at Purton (from the register) and baptised on 31st August 1739 at Berkeley Parish Church.


WILLIAM COOK, Great V Grandfather of Richard Barton (Twice)

(?) Son of Aaron Cook I

Husband of Mary Everett

Father of James and Aaron Cook

 

Also Father of Mary Knight, Infant Edward, Sarah, Edward, Infant Charles, Charles and Betty

William Cook was baptised on 6th May 1723 at Berkeley, the son of Aaron Cook of Purton. However, an elder brother, William Cook the son of Aaron Cook of Riddleford, was buried nearly five months beforehand on 13th January 1722/3.

He married Mary Everett on 20th May 1750 at Berkeley Parish Church. They were both described in the register as ‘of Berkeley’. Nine of their children seem to have been christened at Berkeley. The first baptism describes William as ‘of Perton’ but from 1753 until 1761 he is ‘of Saniger’ which is another hamlet near Purton. In 1769 William is ‘of Riddleset’. When he was buried at Berkeley on 3rd July 1786 he was described in the burial register as a ‘Yeoman of Riddleford’.

Of their nine children the elder Edward died in infancy and also the elder Charles.

On 1st July 1786 William Cook made a will in which we find the following details:

‘William Cook of the Tything of Hinton in the Parish of Berkeley, in the County of Gloucester, Dairyman, being aged and infirm…’

First I bequeath to my wife Mary during her natural life provided chased and unmarried the Freehold Messuage, Garden, Orchard and appurtenances belonging to me called Shatfords, situate in the tything of Hinton.

After her decease – My son James – the north end tenement with half the garden and half the orchard to him and his heirs for ever. My son Aaron – Middle tenement next adjoining with half the garden and orchard to him and his heirs for ever. I also give and devise the south end tenement, the same being newly built with a garden ground adjoining, to my son Charles Cook during his natural life and then to Edward Cook my son.

The goods, chattels and cattle to his wife then if unchaste to his children – James Cook, Edward Cook, Charles Cook and Aaron Cook, Mary the wife of Richard Knight and Betty Cook.

Bequest to Daniel Purnell, son of daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, the wife of his son Charles – £5.

Signed with the mark of William Cook and his widow, Mary Cook, was appointed as Executor. The will was proved on 4th October 1788.


MARY COOK, Great V Grandmother of Richard Barton (Twice)

Wife of William Cook

Mother of James and Aaron Cook

 

Also Mother of Mary Knight, Infant Edward, Sarah, Edward, Infant Charles, Charles and Betty

If we have the correct burial details for Mary then she was born in about 1732.

William Cook married Mary Everett on 20th May 1750 at Berkeley Parish Church. They were both described in the register as ‘of Berkeley’. She was the executrix of her husband’s will.

Q/REL/1/Berkeley/1804-6:

 Land Tax assessments for the Tything of Hinton for 1804-6 reveal that Mary Cook was occupying her own land which was assessed at £0-3-4d.

She was probably buried on 10th December 1812 when we find an entry in the Berkeley Burial Register for ‘Mary Cook of Purton, widow, aged eighty years.

The children of William and Mary Cook are Great V Aunts and Uncles:

MARY KNIGHT, Great V Aunt

Mary Cook was baptised on 26th November 1750. She is mentioned in her father’s will of 1786 as being the wife of Richard Knight. There is a marriage by licence for the couple at Berkeley. Richard Knight was described as of Wotton-under-Edge and the wedding took place on 4th January 1781.


JAMES COOK, Great IV Grandfather of Richard Barton

Son of William Cook and Mary (nee Everett)

Husband of Hannah Underwood

Father of Aaron Cook III

 

Also Father of Mary Ann, James, Sarah Field, Hannah, Betty and Matthew

James Cook is mentioned in the Bishop’s Transcripts as having been baptised at Berkeley on 31st December 1751. Certainly a son, James, is mentioned in his Father’s will of 1786. The baptismal register omits James, the son of William Cook and has in his place James, the son of William Clarke of Hinton. I am convinced that this is a misprint in the register. Also the burial for James Cook of Pyrton on 29th November 1829, states that he was seventy-eight-years-old.

However, it is possible that James Cook, my Great IV Grandfather is another James Cook who was the illegitimate son of Mary Cook of Hamton (check!). This baby was baptised on 11th May 1767 at Berkeley, his mother was possibly born in 1748 and his grandparents may have been John and Margaret Cook.

If James Cook was the son of William and Mary Cook then his brother was Aaron Cook II, the grandfather of James Noad, Great, Great Grandfather of Richard John Barton.

James Cook married Hannah Underwood of Stone on 19th October 1788 and the witnesses were William Oldland and Henry Long. James and Hannah had at least six children between 1790 and 1808. In 1796 their daughter Sarah is described as the daughter of James and Anna Cook of Pyrton. James was buried on 29th November 1829 at Berkeley. He was described as “of Purton” and as aged seventy-eight years. Hannah may have been buried on 21st January 1816, aged fifty-one years and, again, from Purton.


 EDWARD COOK, Infant Great Uncle

Edward Cook was baptised at Berkeley on 2nd November 1753. He was buried on 8th April 1755 in Berkeley churchyard.


SARAH COOK, Infant Great V Aunt

Sarah Cook was baptised on 18th November 1755 at Berkeley. She was buried on 27th November 1755 in Berkeley churchyard.


EDWARD COOK, Great V Uncle

 

Edward Cook was baptised on 5th November 1756 at Berkeley. He is mentioned in his father’s will of 1786. He may have married Mary Hubbert or Hulbert by licence at Berkeley on 12th November 1780. The witnesses were James Pick and Jno Joyner. In the baptism register Edward is described as ‘of Purton’ in 1780 but from 1785 until 1794 he is a Yeoman of Wanswell. Mary, the wife of Edward Cook, a labourer of Wanswell, was buried on 5th February 1807/8 (?) at Berkeley. Edward Cook died at Wanswell aged eighty years, and was buried at Berkeley on 10th January 1837. The legacies in the will of his father in 1786 would suggest that Edward had left Shatfords by that date.

Will of his father William Cook:

First I bequeath to my wife Mary during her natural life provided chased and unmarried the Freehold Messuage, Garden, Orchard and appurtenances belonging to me called Shatfords, situate in the tything of Hinton.

After her decease – My son James – the north end tenement with half the garden and half the orchard to him and his heirs for ever. My son Aaron – Middle tenement next adjoining with half the garden and orchard to him and his heirs for ever. I also give and devise the south end tenement, the same being newly built with a garden ground adjoining, to my son Charles Cook during his natural life and then to Edward Cook my son.

The goods, chattels and cattle to his wife then if unchaste to his children – James Cook, Edward Cook, Charles Cook and Aaron Cook, Mary the wife of Richard Knight and Betty Cook.

Bequest to Daniel Purnell, son of daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, the wife of his son Charles – £5.

Signed with the mark of William Cook and his widow, Mary Cook, was appointed as Executor. The will was proved on 4th October 1788.
