From A Memorial of Francis Cook


Jacob Cook, son of Francis, is first mentioned in the colony records as a volunteer in Capt. Prince's company for the Indian War, June, 1637; and in 1648 was made a freeman. The records make frequent mention of his name in the colonial affairs, as holding offices in the town of Plymouth, &c. On the removal of Gov. Prince to Eastham, he sold his house and lands at Rocky Nook, adjoining the land of his father, Francis Cook, and removed with the governor's party to the above town, where he resided until his death, which occurred July 7, 1676.

8g grandfather of Richard Gere through son with Damaris, Jacob Jr. m. Lydia Miller.
