Cook Genealogy & History

Cook dates from at least 1086, when a variant form (Coc) was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, although there are slightly earlier records as well. It is an occupational name for a cook, seller of cooked meats, or the keeper of an eating house, and comes (via Old English) from the Latin "cocus", or "cook". Cook family history records a Cook first coming to America in 1635 and settling in Viginia. Cook genealogy lists such notable Cooks as Nathaniel Cook, designer of the standard set of chess figures; the British explorer, navigator and cartographer James Cook; and travel entrepreneur Thomas Cook.
