Excerpt from Humphrey Hooke of Bristol and His Family and Descendants in England and America During the Seventeenth Century

The family of Hooke in America, especially those who have descended from William, son of Humphrey, as well as all others who are interested in historical research in' America, are deeply indebted to Mr. Todd for the work he has done, which, of course, held no prospects for yielding him financial profit but was entirely prompted by his desire to establish a record for future generations to enjoy.

There seem to have been but two Hooke emigrants to America in the 17th century who left families that have endured to the present time. One was descended from William Hooke, son of Humphrey above referred to, and the other from Thomas Hooke who settled in Maryland circa 1668. James W. Hook of New Haven, Connecticut, above mentioned is a direct descendant of Thomas and the author of James Hook and Virginia Eller, a genealogy which contains a record of Thomas Hook's descendants. There is some evidence to support the belief that Thomas, as well as William, was descended from Alderman Humphrey Hooke, but definite proof has not been found. Thomas may have been the Thomas mentioned in the Alderman's will as being the child Of his grandson Humphrey Hooke. Some doubt attaches to this.
