History of Chester County, Pennsylvania: With Genealogical and Biographical; By John Smith Futhey, Gilbert Cope 1881. Page 501 =================================================
"COOK, Peter, of Tarvin, Cheshire, England, married, 10, 7, 1695, Elinor Norman, of Kingsley, at Newton, in Cheshire, and had the following children, of whom the first was born at Tarvin, the second at Kingsley, and the rest at Norwich, in Cheshire: John b. 7, 2, 1696; Mary, b. 9, 12, 1698; Peter, b. 10, 4, 1700; Isaac, b. 10, 18, 1702; Thomas and Abraham, b. 8, 29, 1704; Elinor, b. 3, 22, 1707; Mary, b. 3, 22, 1709; Samuel, b. 2, 23, 1712.

The name in England appears to have been written Cooke. This family embarked for America soon after the birth of the youngest child, but the father died on the voyage or shortly after their arrival. The widow produced a certificate to Chester Monthly Meeting, 1, 29, 1714, and in that year was married to John Fincher, with whom she removed with her children to Londongrove."
