    • RICHARD SINGLETARY m. for his second wife, ("goodwife Singletary" having died in 1638-9), SUSANNAH COOK(E), who was a sister of PHILIP COOKE of Cambridge, Mass. The latter is easily established. She was the mother of his children.

      Philip Cook was a proprietor at Cambridge, 1646; freeman, May 26, 1647, and when he d., he left a will. (PAIGE'S, Hist. of Cambridge, p. 514.)
      "Philip Cook, propr., 1646; frm. May 26, 1647. He m. Mary, dau. of Barnabas Lampson; ch. Mary, Samuel, Hannah, Sarah, Philip, bapt. May 5, 1661, John, bapt. Aug. 30, 1663.

      Will, dated July 18, 1666, prob. April 2, 1667; wife Mary; eldest son Samuel; ch. to be placed in family of friends and relatives if his wife approve; John ae. 3, TO HIS SISTER SINGLETARY OF HAVERHILL; Phillip, ae. 5, to Richard Eccles; Hannah, ae 9, to John Cooper; all to be brought up in Christian nurture and some honest employment; TO KINSMAN, PHILLIP EASTMAN." (POPE'S PIONEERS OF MASS., p. 115.)

      The foregoing proves the relationship, first set forth (supra) from the statement, "his sister Singletary of Haverhill," since the latter was living there, in 1666, with her husband, RICHARD SINGLETARY.

      Examining the records and authorities at Cambridge, Mass., one is struck immediately with the very probable relationship of SUSANNAH COOK to Col. George Cook(e), gent., Cambridge, freeman, March 3, 1635-6. He was the Cromwellian soldier, (vide, BLOOMFIELD, ante, p. 499,). And, probably from his actual service, and as a colonel, in Oliver Cromwell's army, gave the tradition to Thomas Bloomfield, through the daughter Mary, who became the wife of JONATHAN DUNHAM, alias SINGLETARY, son of RICHARD SINGLETARY, His older brother, at Cambridge, was JOSEPH COOK(E), who came to America with him. In close association and contiguity, there was Philip Cook(e), which almost conclusively, with other indicia, holds these two brothers, Col. George Cook and Joseph Cook, as his brothers, in turn; hence, making the logical deduction, all three of these Cook brothers were such to their sister SUSANNAH SINGLETARY, whose maiden name was SUSANNAH COOK(E).
    Notes  Philip Cooke was allegedly the brother, also, of Col. George Cooke and Joseph Cooke, both also of Cambridge. These two both eventually returned to England.  [4
