About Elizabeth Cook Lawrence


The book, New England Marriages Prior to 1700, shows the marriage of John and his first wife, Elizabeth (Cooke) of Groton who was born in 1635 and died in 1663. Since the Cooke is in parentheses, it can be assumed it is her maiden name but she is married. Could she have been married to a Waters? Are Elizabeth Waters and Elizabeth Cooke the same person? The Lineage Book of National Society of Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America, Volume VI, 1936, shows Elizabeth born before 1620.

~• {May 2016} There seems to be an issue here: Children of Aaron Cooke Sr. and Elizabeth (Charde) Cooke were: 1. Elizabeth Cooke - Bpt. 8 Sept. 1611, Bur. 10 July 1615, Bridport, Dorset, England. Could Aaron and Elizabeth have had another daughter named Elizabeth born between 1611 and 1615 (when Aaron died)? ~• Otherwise Elizabeth Cook Lawrence cannot be the dau. of Aaron and Eliz. (Charde) . (I think that Elizabeth Cook Lawrence is the dau of Waters as detailed below and not Aaron Cooke) ~• MMvB, vol curator (more research needed)
