  • Note:
    Extensive research in England has not found any records to show that Valentine Cook's father was a first cousin of Captain James Cook (1728-1779), the renowned explorer. Capt. Cook's father James had no known siblings. As well as having no known uncles, aunts, or first-cousins, Capt. Cook had no known brothers with male descendants to carry on the name, as his brother John died without children at age 23, and his other brother William died in infancy. Capt. Cook has no known descendants at all, as all his known children died either in infancy or without children.
