Cook's parents, James Cook (1694-1779) & Grace Pace (1702-1765), married at Stainton-in-Cleveland, Nth Yorkshire, on Oct 10 1725, and lived at Marton (then a small village, today a suburb of Middlesbrough) where James Cook was born in 1728, and then at Great Ayton, Nth Yorkshire.. They had 8 children altogether, but the only one to leave descendants beyond the next generation was Capt. Cook's younger sister, Margaret Cook, who married JAMES FLECK at Great Ayton on Sept 4 1764.

CAPTAIN James Cook and his wife Elizabeth Batts had six children, but none left descendants. Three of the children died young, one died as a teenager and two were tragically drowned at sea, attempting to follow in their father's footsteps. Roy Stockdill Editor, The Journal of One-Name Studies
