[PVR 666], daughter of Thomas Lettice and widow of William Shurtleff [ MF 6:13].
was the son of Hester Mayhew and Francis Cook, an Englishman who moved to Leiden.
The couple married in Leiden in 1603.
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. Jacob was born in Holland about 1618.
Francis arrived in Plymouth in 1620 on the Mayflower with his teenage son John. Hester Mayhieu Cooke and the couple's three other children (Jane, Jacob and young Hester) arrived in Plymouth on the Anne in 1623. At the time, Jacob was about five years old.
In 1646, when he was 28 years old, Jacob married Damaris Hopkins, daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth Hopkins of the Mayflower. Damaris was born in Plymouth sometime after 1627 (she was named for an older sister, the "Mayflower Damaris" who, it is believed, died before she was born). Jacob and Damaris had seven children: Elizabeth, Caleb, Jacob, Mary, Martha, Francis and Ruth. Damaris died sometime between 1666 and 1669. Jacob married again, in 1669, to Elizabeth Lettice Shurtleff. They had two daughters: Sarah and Rebecca.

Jacob Cooke was related to a passenger on the Mayflower and born before 1700.
Jacob came to America with his mother in the Anne in 1623.
He lived with his parents at Rocky Nook.
At the age of 19, in the spring of 1637, he volunteered to go on the expedition against the Pequots.
 He married Damaris in 1620. Around the time of his marraige Francis Cooke
and his wife gave Jacob 100 acres of land at north River and an ox,
a cow and a calf. He was also promised the next foal that Francis' mare produced. He remained at Rocky Nook and purchased land that abutted that of his father. He also shared in the town's grant of land at Punckateesett (Little Compton). He was made freeman in 1648. He was chosen Supervisor of the Highways several time and for the Jury several times. Jacob Cooke in the writings of William Bradford
The names of those which came over first, in the year 1620, and were by the blessing of God the first beginners and in a sort the foundation of all the Plantations and Colonies in New England; and their families ...
"Francis Cooke and his son John; but his wife and other children [this includes Jacob Cooke] came afterwards."
Jacob Cooke and the 1623 Division of Land
The 1623 Division of Land marked the end of the Pilgrims' earliest system of land held in common by all. Governor Bradford explains it in this way
"And so assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number, for that end, only for present use (but made no division for inheritance) and ranged all boys and youth under some family. This had very good success, for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little ones with them to set corn; which before would allege weakness and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression."
Plymouth Colony Records, Deeds, &c., Vol. I 1627-1651 is the oldest record book of the Plymouth settlement. It begins with the 1623 Division of Land, recorded in the handwriting of Governor William Bradford. The lands of Francis Cooke were among those designated as "their grounds which came first over in the May Floure, according as thier lotes were case" and described in this way "these lye on the South side of the brooke to the baywards." Francis Cooke received 2 acres, one for himself and one for his son John who was also on the Mayflower.
The name of Francis Cooke also appears in the list of "their grounds which came ouer in the shipe called the Anne," which was the ship on which his wife and children arrived. Here, he receives 4 acres, one for his wife and one for each of the three children who accompanied her. One of these children was Jacob Cooke.
Jacob Cooke & the 1627 Division of Cattle
Plymouth Colony Records, Deeds, &c., Vol I 1627-1651 also tells of the 1627 Division of Cattle:
"At a publique court held the 22th of May it was concluded by the whole Companie, that the cattell wch were the Companies, to wit, the Cowes & the Goates should be equally devided to all the psonts of the same company ... & so the lotts fell as followeth, thirteene psonts being pportioned to one lot ...
"The first lot fell to ffrancis Cooke & his Companie Joyned to him his wife Hester Cooke (3) John Cooke (4) Jacob Cooke (5) Jane Cooke (6) Hester Cooke (7) Mary Cooke (8) Moses Simonson (9) Phillip Delanoy (10) Experience Michaell (11) John ffance (12) Joshua Pratt (13) Phinihas Pratt. To his lot fell the least of the 4 black heyfers Came in the Jacob, and two shee goats."

7 June 1637: "The Names of the Souldiers that willingly offer themselves to goe upon the sd Service, wth Mr Prince & the Leiftent. Voluntaries: Thomas Clarke, Richard Church, Georg Soule, Samuell Jenney , Jacob Cooke."
