  • Notes 
    • A religious dissenter who evidently managed to evade persecution. A 1675 entry in the diary of Samuel Hubbard says that Hubbard still had a "testament of my grandfather Cocke's, printed in 1549, which he [Cocke] hid in his bed straw lest it should be found and burned in queen Mary's days." [Sabbath and Sectarianism in Seventeenth Century England, citation details below]

      Multiple trees give the father of Naomi Cocke as the Thomas Cocke who was baptized 10 Jun 1564 in Witherfield, Suffolk. Obviously if Samuel Hubbard's "testament of my grandfather Cocke's" was in fact "printed in 1549," this Thomas Cocke cannot be Naomi's father.
