The Isle of Wight Cooks traces this Cook family from the known origins in Bristol, England, through seventeen generations who settled primarily in Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The birth record of the son of the immigrant was discovered in a Parish Register in Bristol, dispelling the myth that he was born at sea. Birth, death, marriage, and other pertinent information (when known) is included. The information is presented in a very readable text with an every-name index.
Robert W. Witt, a member of the English faculty at Eastern Kentucky University, has previously published Descendants of John Witt, the Virginia Immigrant, a history of this ancient Virginia family from the beginnings in America to the twentieth century, as well as numerous scholarly books and articles.
