About Thomas Cooke

As a number of researchers have noted, Rachel seems to have had poor judgment regarding her choice of husbands. Thomas Cooke almost immediately ran afoul of the courts in Ipswich, both for negative remarks about the minister, and for drinking and partying late at night – the former considered a more serious offense than the latter. Shortly thereafter, he and Rachel moved to Lynn, where presumably Thomas was employed at the first iron works in the Village of Hammersmith. The move, however, did not stop his drinking, and he died soon after, leaving Rachel with a young son (John Cooke).
