Brief Biography

Francis Cooke married Hester le Mahieu on 20 July 1603 in Leiden, Holland; she was a French Walloon whose parents had initially fled to Canterbury, England; she left for Leiden sometime before 1603. Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards.

Francis, and his oldest son John, came on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620. He left behind his wife Hester and his other children Jane, Jacob, Elizabeth and Hester. After the Colony was founded and better established, he sent for his wife and children, and they came to Plymouth in 1623 on the ship "Anne."

Hester Mahieu was admitted to communion in the Walloon church by confession of faith. on 1 June 1603.

Notes

  • Edward Winslow wrote in "Hypocrisie Unmasked" ["Mayflower Descendant" 27:64] --

"Take notice of our practie at Leyden, viz. that one Samuel Terry was received from the French Church there, into communion with us; also the wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloone, holds communion with the Church at Plymouth , as she came from the French, to this day, by virtue of communion of churches."

The ship Anne arrived in Plymouth in July, 1623 accompanied by the Little James, bringing new settlers along with many of the wives and children that had been left behind in Leyden when the Mayflower departed in 1620. This ship passenger list is reconstructed from the 1623 Division of Land, the passenger list compiled by Charles Banks in Planters of the Commonwealth, and the research found in Eugene Aubrey Stratton's Plymouth Colony: Its History and Its People, 1620-1691. The author is a descendant of Anne passengers Ellen Newton, Mrs. Elizabeth Warren, Anna Warren, Mrs. Barbara Standish, Mary Buckett, and Francis Sprague.

Hester La Mahieu was christened on Jun 1 1603 in Leyden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands. She was buried in 1666 in Burial Hill, Plymouth, Massachusetts. She died on Jun 18 1666 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts. She was born in Leyden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands. She has Ancestral File number 7TSS-M1. She has reference number AUD30055. An article you should get a copy of is "The Pilgrims and Other English in Leiden Records: Some New Pilgrim Documents," in NEHGR CXLIII (July 1989), pp. 195+. It helps establish the family of Hester Mahieu (Esther de Mahieu) from the area around Lille. On page 199 is:

Lille, also known in Dutch as Rijssel, now lies in northern France. Formerly it was part of Walloon Flanders. Heavily Protestant, the area was captured by Catholic armies under Parma in 1578, and many Walloon Calvinists fled to England directly, while others fled north towards the Protestant cities of Bruges and Antwerp. When those cities fell in 1585, refugees went across to England or north to Zeeland and Holland. We may assume that Hester Mahieu's parents were among these refugees, taking with them their daughters Marie and Francoise. Hester was evidently born in Canterbury, although the Walloon Church records there do not contain references to this family....With their deep roots in the Walloon refugee experience, Hester Mahieu and Franchoys Cooke appear much less English than their names and birthplaces originally indicated.

Hester's parents, Jaecques and Jenne Mahieu were received into communion with the Leiden Walloon Church on 10 June 1590. Four sisters of Hester Mahieu are known:

1. Marie Mahieu, widow of Jan de Lannoy, married secondly on 18 Feb 1605 at Leiden to Robert Mannoo, a woolcomber from Namur.

2. Francoise Mahieu of Bondu (a hamlet near Lille and Armentiers) married on 10 June 1611 before the magistrates in Leiden to Daniel Cricket, a woolcomber from Sandwich, Kent, and a member of the English Separatists.

3. Jenne Mahieu of Armentiers (near Lille), widow of Nicola Cordonne, and stepdaughter of Jenne Mahieu and step-sister of Anthonette Mahieu, married on 4 May 1602 at the Leiden Walloon Church to Jan de la Roche from Rheims.

4. Anthonette Mahieu of Houpelyne (near Armentiers), widow of Guillaume de Sint Merty, married on 15 May 1605 at the Leiden Walloon Church to Guillaume de Renquyre, a woolcomber from Saint Thomas.

Francis' wife Hester Mahieu was the daughter of Jaques and Jenne Mahieu, French Waloon refuges that had fled to Canterbury, England where Hester was born about 1584. When in Leyden, Holland, from 1603 until the arrival of the Pilgrims, Francis and Hester were members of the French Waloon church. HoweverIndiana 1606 Francis and his wife left for a trip to Norwich, and they returned in 1607 to have their son baptized in the Church, and in 1608 they rejoined communion with the Walloon Church in Leyden. Sometime between 1611 and 1618, the Cookes switched and began communion with the Pilgrims' Separatist church in Leyden.

In 1620, Francis and son John embarked on the Mayflower, leaving behind his wife and younger children (who would come later when the Colony was more settled).

Birth: 1582 Kent, England Death: Jun. 8, 1666 Plymouth Plymouth County Massachusetts, USA

Came to America on the ship Anne in 1623. She was of Walloon (French Protestant) stock but came to Leyden, Holland from Canterbury, England where there was a Walloon church, in the records of which the name of Mahieu was common.

The marriage intentions state Hester Mahieu was from Canterbury, England and she was accompanied by her mother, Jennie Mahieu and her sister Jennie Mahieu. In his book "Hypocrisie Unmasked", Edward Winslow stated she was a "Walloone" and came from the French "Mayflower Descendant" 27:145 shows she was admitted to the French Reformed Church in Leiden in 1603.

"Take notice of our practie at Leyden, viz. that one Samuel Terry was received from the French Church there, into communion with us; also the wife of Francis Cooke being a Walloone, holds communion with the Church at Plymouth , as she came from the French, to this day, by virtue of communion of churches."

If 19 at marriage and 42 at the birth of her last known child about late 1626, then Hester was born about 1584 and thus was about two years younger than her husband. As Hester was about 82 in 1666, it seems likely she died closer to 1666 than to 1675. Hester Mahie was admited to communion in the Walloon church by confession of faith on June 1, 1603, about a month and a half before her marriage.

Biography

Hester Mahieu, was the daughter of Jaques and Jenne Mahieu, French Waloon refuges that had fled to Canterbury, England where Hester was born about 1584. When in Leyden, Holland, from 1603 until the arrival of the Pilgrims, Francis and Hester were members of the French Waloon church. However, in 1606, Francis and his wife left for a trip to Norwich, and they returned in 1607, to have their son baptized in the Church, and in 1608, they rejoined communion with the Walloon Church in Leyden. Sometime between 1611, and 1618, the Cookes switched and began communion with the Pilgrims' Separatist church in Leyden. She passed away in 1666. [1] Name

   Esther de Mahieu. 
   Esther de Mahieu.[3][4] 
   Esther sa femme, de Norwich.[5][6][7] 
   Hester Mayhieu.[8] 

Birth

Hester was born about 1584, in Canterbury, England.

   born about 1584, in Canterbury, England. 
   3 Jul 1582, Canterbury, England. 
   3 Jul 1582, Holland, Reusel-de Mierden, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands. 
   ABT 1591/2, SDATE 1 JUL 1592, Canterbury, Co Kent, England

Note: Although Hester Mahieu is listed as "of Canterbury," she was actually Walloon, French-speaking Belgian, and not English. Many Walloons lived in Canterbury, engaged in the textile trades. [9] Baptized

   1 Jun 1603, Leyden, S Netherlands, Holland. 
   1 JUN 1603, Leyden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands 

Religion

They were members of the Leiden Walloon Church, a congregation of French-speaking Belgian people whose beliefs were very similar to those of the English Separatists.[10]

Hester Mahieu's name also appears in records in Leiden in 1603 as having been accepted as a member of the French Reformed Church (known as the Walloon Church) of Leyden. Her name in this list reads "Esther de Mahieu." The baptism of John Cooke, Francis and Hester Mahieu Cooke's firstborn son, is also in the Walloon Church records. [11][12]

Note: Hester Mahieu Cooke's name appears in 1646 in a description of the relationship among the various Protestant churches of Europe : "And for the French churches, that we held and do hold communion with them, take notice of our practice at Leyden, viz. that one Samuel Terry was received from the French church there into communion with us. Also the wife of Francis Cooke, being a Walloon, holds communion with the church at Plymouth, as she came from the French, to this day, by virtue of communion of churches." [13][14]

"On New Year's Day, 1608, among those admitted to communion by letter of transfer from another Walloon congregation were Francois Cooke et Esther sa femme, de Norwich' ... This entry informs us that before 1608, the Cooke-Mahieu couple had lived in Norwich among the Walloons there. They evidently left for Norwich on 8 August 1606, as a note in the Walloon Library of Leiden mentions their departure on that date with letters of transfer ... Both the departure with attestation and the return to communion in Leiden with a similar letter indicate that Francois Cooke, as well as Hester his wife, was a member of the Leiden Walloon congregation. The Cookes evidently returned briefly to Leiden, between the quarterly dates of communion, which they missed, in order to have their son Jean baptized within the Leiden Walloon congregation with family as godparents to raise him in case he became orphaned.

"Scholars at the Leiden Municipal Archives discovered two other children of Francois and Hester besides their son Jean : Elizabeth, baptized on 26 December 1611, and a child, whose name is not given, buried in the Pieterskerk on 20 May 1608 ... The burial record imparts the further information that at that time Franchoys Couck lived on the Levendaal, a canal on the southeast side of Leiden. The Cookes' other children, Jane, Hester, Jacob, and Mary, were presumably baptized in the Separatist congregaton of Leiden, for which no records are preserved, although it is possible that one or two might have been born in Norwich, or some may have been born in the colony of New Plymouth ... [15][16][17]

Note: Both the departure with attestation and the return to communion in Leiden with a similar letter indicate that Francois Cooke, as well as Hester his wife, was a member of the Leiden Walloon congregation. The Cookes evidently returned briefly to Leiden, between the quarterly dates of communion, which they missed, in order to have their son Jean baptized within the Leiden Walloon congregation with family as godparents to raise him in case he became orphaned.[18][19][20] Early life and family

Francis Cooke and Hester le Mahieu's marriage occurred in Leiden, Holland six years before the Pilgrim church made its move there, so he was living there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards.[21]

"Couk, Franchoys of England, Wool-comber, acc[ompanied] by Phillipe de Veau and Raphael Roelandt his acq[aintance]. betr[othed]. 30 June 1603 to Hester Mahieu of Canterbury in England, acc[ompanied]. by Jenne Mahieu her mother and Jenne mahieu her sister ..." [22]

[Although Hester Mahieu is listed as "of Canterbury," she was actually Walloon, French-speaking Belgian, and not English. Many Walloons lived in Canterbury, engaged in the textile trades.] [23]

In Leiden, sometime after July 20, 1603, as Franchoys Couck, he married Hester le Mahieu, the daughter of Protestant refugees from the Walloon Flanders area.[24] The Mahieus, from Lille, had resided in Canterbury, then London, since the 1570s before moving to Leiden in 1590. Hester le Mahieu's sister was Marie le Mahieu, wife of Jan Lano, another Protestant refugee in Canterbury and then Leiden, whose son, Philippe de Lannoy (anglicized to 'Delano') migrated on the Fortune to join his uncle Francis Cooke and his cousin Robert at Plymouth colony in 1621, having been left behind with twenty others when the Mayflower's sailing mate, the Speedwell, foundered and returned to port in England leaving the Mayflower to sail alone. Philippe is the progenitor of the branch of the Delano family living in America, from which Franklin Delano Roosevelt descends.

While in Leiden, Francis and Hester were members of the Walloon church. In 1606, they left Leiden briefly for Norwich, England, where they joined another Walloon church, returning to Leiden in 1607, possibly for religious reasons. Between 1611 and 1618, the Cookes were members of the Pilgrim Separatist congregation in Leiden.[25] The Pilgrim church was not established in Leiden until 1609, so Francis was living there long before their arrival and must have met up with and joined them afterwards.

They evidently left for Norwich on 8 August 1606, as a note in the Walloon Library of Leiden mentions their departure on that date with letters of transfer ... [26][27][28]

"On New Year's Day, 1608, among those admitted to communion by letter of transfer from another Walloon congregation were Francois Cooke et Esther sa femme, de Norwich' ... This entry informs us that before 1608, the Cooke-Mahieu couple had lived in Norwich among the Walloons there. They evidently left for Norwich on 8 August 1606, as a note in the Walloon Library of Leiden mentions their departure on that date with letters of transfer ... [29][30][31] Life in England

Life in England: Francis Cooke and his family spent some time in Norwich, Norfolk between 1606 and 1608, but the purpose is unknown. Hester Cooke identified herself as being from Canterbury in her betrothal registration.[32] Life in Holland

Life in Holland: Francis Cooke was living in Leiden by April 1603, when he worked there as a woolcomber. His wife’s family were Walloons, originally from the town of Lille in Flanders, coming to Leiden from London in 1590. Hester joined the Walloon church just before her betrothal, but there is no record of Francis joining. He did appear in the records as witness to a baptism and a betrothal.Three of their children are listed in the church records between 1607–1611, but none thereafter and they may have joined the English Separatist church at that time.[33] The "Anne" and Plymouth

Hester Mayhieu Cooke and the couples two other children, Jane and Jacob, arrived on the ship "Anne" in 1623.[34][35][36]

The Ann(e) and the Little James arrived together in July (10), 1623 - "The Planters". "The vessels parted company at sea; the Ann arrived the latter part of June, and the Little James some week or ten days later; part of the number were the wives and children of persons already in the Colony." - "Hotten's Lists" Death

Hester died June 8, 1666, in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Note: Francis Cooke married Hester Mahieu in Leiden on July 20, 1603, or shortly thereafter.They had seven children.The birth order for the first three is uncertain. Hester died after June 8, 1666.[56]

Note: "On New Year's Day, 1608, among those admitted to communion by letter of transfer from another Walloon congregation were Francois Cooke et Esther sa femme, de Norwich' ...

[60][61][62]

Note: Two more daughters, Hester and Mary, were born to Francis and Hester Cooke in Plymouth.[63]

Note: The date of his marriage to Hester Mahieu in Leyden, Holland has often been printed incorrectly (e.g., 30 June 1603). However, an article in Mayflower Descendant 27:145-55 (New Light on Francis Cooke and His Wife Hester Mahieu and Their Son John) goes to great pains to give an estimated date and states the the previous published date was incorrect. Marriage intentions were entered July 4, 1603 and Luly 5, 1603 which means the three banns were proclaimed July 6, July 13 and July 20 (three successive Sundays); therefore, the marriage took place on or after July 20, 1603. Hester Mahieu, the daugther of Jennie le Mahieu of Canterbury, England died. after June 8, 1666 in Plymouth.[64]

Note: Jacob COOKE was born about 1618 in Leyden,Holland. (590)(591) Rosser: by deposition, MD 2:45 He emigrated in 1623 from Plymouth, MA. Came with mother Hester in the Anne. He died Bet 11-18 Dec 1675 in Plymouth, MA. (592) Will of son, John, Rosser MB&D, Vol 1, p. 316 Two additonal children are Sarah (possible) born about 1671, and Rebecca (probably) living 11 December 1675.

Additional Information

Hester Mayhieu Cooke and the couples two other children, Jane and Jacob, arrived on the ship "Anne" in 1623.

The Ann(e) and the Little James arrived together in July (10), 1623 - "The Planters". "The vessels parted company at sea; the Ann arrived the latter part of June, and the Little James some week or ten days later; part of the number were the wives and children of persons already in the Colony." - "Hotten's Lists"

Hester Mahieu, was the daughter of Jaques and Jenne Mahieu, French Waloon refuges that had fled to Canterbury, England where Hester was born about 1584. When in Leyden, Holland, from 1603 until the arrival of the Pilgrims, Francis and Hester were members of the French Waloon church. However, in 1606, Francis and his wife left for a trip to Norwich, and they returned in 1607, to have their son baptized in the Church, and in 1608, they rejoined communion with the Walloon Church in Leyden. Sometime between 1611, and 1618, the Cookes switched and began communion with the Pilgrims' Separatist church in Leyden. She passed away in 1666.

Children of Francis and Hester Cooke

The birth order of the Cooke children is uncertain.

John was baptized in Leiden, Holland between January and March 1607 and died in Dartmouth on November 23, 1695. He married Sarah Warren on March 28, 1634 in Plymouth and had five children. She died after July 15, 1696.

a child was buried in Leiden on May 20, 1608.

Jane was born about 1609 in Leiden. She married Experience Mitchell in Plymouth after May 22, 1627. Her date of death is unknown, as is the date of his second marriage. But his first three children are generally considered to be hers.

Elizabeth was baptized in Leiden on December 26, 1611. There is no further record.

Jacob was born about 1618 and died in Plymouth in December 1675. He was buried at Tyler Point Cemetery, Barrington, R.I.

He married 1. Damaris Hopkins shortly after June 10, 1646 in Plymouth and had seven children. Her father was Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins. 2. Elizabeth (Lettice) Shurtleff on November 18, 1669 in Plymouth and had two children.

Hester was born about 1620 in Leiden and died between 1669 and 1691. She married Richard Wright in Plymouth in 1644 and had six children. She was buried at Burial Hill in Plymouth, Mass.

Mary was born in Plymouth about 1625 and died in Middleborough on March 21, 1714. She married John Tomson on December 26, 1645 in Plymouth. Both Mary and John were buried at Nemasket Hill Cemetery, Middleborough, Massachusetts. About the Mayflower

The Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on September 6/16, 1620. The small, 100-foot ship had 102 passengers and a crew of about 30-40 in extremely cramped conditions. By the second month out, the ship was being buffeted by strong westerly gales, causing the ship‘s timbers to be badly shaken with caulking failing to keep out sea water, and with passengers, even in their berths, lying wet and ill. This, combined with a lack of proper rations and unsanitary conditions for several months, attributed to what would be fatal for many, especially the majority of women and children. On the way there were two deaths, a crew member and a passenger, but the worst was yet to come after arriving at their destination when, in the space of several months, almost half the passengers perished in cold, harsh, unfamiliar New England winter.

On November 9/19, 1620, after about 3 months at sea, including a month of delays in England, they spotted land, which was the Cape Cod Hook, now called Provincetown Harbor. And after several days of trying to get south to their planned destination of the Colony of Virginia, strong winter seas forced them to return to the harbor at Cape Cod hook, where they anchored on November 11/21. The Mayflower Compact was signed that day.
