Why did John Cooke name a son John Lett Cooke ?
Posted by: Graham Louer (ID *****0572) Date: May 29, 2012 at 11:56:50

John Cooke who died in the early 1740s in Brunswick Co VA in his will named a son John Lett Cooke.

The John who wrote the will left a widow Diana, and is said to have had an earlier wife Elizabeth, whose maiden name is unknown.

Does anyone know why John named his son John Lett ?

Was it his own motherís maiden name ? Or the maiden name of one of his wives ?

Any information, no matter how slight, would be very helpful and much appreciated.
