arrived in US a short time before that. He is believed to be a descendant of the Cooks
of Kent or Hertsfordshire who migrated from Normandy in the 11th century. He came
to New England as a Puritan. Sons, Samuel and Henry Jr. emigrated to Connecticut
while the rest remained in Mass. The family also lived at Plymouth Conn. for a time.
The farm was passed to the widow after he died and it is unknown where it passed
from there. Henry was a Butcher .

Note. I recieved the following eMail from another Cook tracker:_ "The only information I found on
Henry Cook/Judith Birdsall, was from a Winch-Fitzmeyer
Gen. Database Chart...and they have his parents as Edmund Cook and Elizabeth Nichols,
Henry Cook/AnnaGoodere John Cook 1486. What do you think? I can't seem to do anymore
research on Henry if I am not sure who his parents are. We do have the Cook info at our
St. Lib. But like I said, they are on the other Cooke Line, Frances of the Mayflower.
Others wrote me and said we do not connect with them, but they have no proof one way
or the other. Any ideas?"

I rcvd the following as an Email and can't remember from whom.

I read the church records of several Norwich church on film from FHL.
Here are my results re Birdsalls including Henry and Agnes' marriage
record.

Henry Birdsall b. 1578 England d. 17 Sept 1651 Salem, Essex, MA
m. 9 Apr 1610 Norwich, Norfolk, England
Agnes Kemp

Children (surname Birdsall):

1. JUDITH bapt. 2 June 1611 Norwich, Norfolk, England d. 11 Sept 1689
Salem, Essex, MA m. Henry Cook June 1639 Salem, Essex, MA
2. Anne bapt. 24 May 1616 Norwich, Norfolk, England
3. Nathan bapt. 3 Sept 1620 Norwich, Norfolk, England d. 1696 Long
Island, Nassau, NY m. (?)


Henry Birdsall’s family is most likely the family whose records appear
in the Norwich, England churches of St. Stephen’s (Henry and Agnes’
marriage, Judith’s baptism), St. John Timberhill (Anne’s baptism), and
St. Andrew’s (Nathan’s baptism). Another Birdsall family appears in
Norwich church records. Thomas Birdsall and Alice Spendler were married
7 Jan 1588 at St. John Timberhill. They had children baptized at St.
John Timberhill and St. Gregory’s between 1598 and 1602.
