Elizabeth Cooke was born 16 June 1674 in Eastham, Barnstable, Massachusetts.[1]

Elizabeth Cooke married Thomas Newcomb, born about 1668 in Kittery, Maine, in early Oct 1693 in Eastham, Massachusetts.

"They resided in the northern part of Eastham, and the births of their first three children are recorded there. The baptisms of their other six children are recorded in the Congregational Church at Truro, 2 June 1717. At a meeting of proprietors of Pamet Lands, 2 July 1703, three or four acres of land near the swamp above Thomas Newcomb's were granted to Michael Atwood. Mr. Newcomb's name is upon an original petition from the inhabitants of Billingsgate, alias North Eastham, to the legislature, 1723, concerning attendance on public worship, the petition now on file in Mass. Archives. There is no record of the settlement of Mr. Newcomb's estate. Elizabeth Newcomb of Provincetown, whose estate was administered upon in 1776 by James Pratt of Boston, may have been widow of Thomas Newcomb."

Elizabeth Cooke is a great granddaughter of Mayflower Passengers Stephen Hopkins and his Son Giles Hopkins. Proven and certified by the Mayflower Society.
