Cooks in Standon
« on: Sunday 12 June 05 10:42 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have anything on the Cook family in Standon?
 I have great grandfather Henry Randall COOK born Ware , with his wife and children from 1881 census Hackney
Henry seems to have been son of David Cook and Julia and family in Sandon from 1861 & 1871 census
Anyone have anything ? marriage? connections? siblings ?occupation?

Hi Annie,

I think the following three entries from the 1851 census will be of interest to you -

HO/107/1705  F.418  P.7&8   Babbs Green, Wareside.
Item 26  Ann Randle  widow  56  grocer  b.Thorley
              Juliia Randle  dau  21  at  home  Wareside

Item 27  David Cook   U  24  Ag Lab  Standon

Item 29  Joseph Randle Head  25  Brewer  Wareside
               Thirza Randle  Wife   27   Manuden,Essex.

I am still digging and hoping for more.

Regards   ...   Peter

Hi Annie,
There is a fourth item from the 1851 which I should have given you viz -

Item 24    Newhall Farm, Babbs Green.
Thomas Cook  Head  M  23   Ag Lab Bn. Standon
Maria Cook   Wife  M  23  Ware.

I have traced Julia back to the 1841 at Babbs Green.
Edmund Randel  45  Farmer,  Ann  wife 45,  Joseph  15  Ag lab,  JULIA  10,  George 9,  Ann 5.  All born in county.

 A quick start on the Cook family in the parish records has revealed -

Standon.   Baptism  4th February 1827 -
David Cook  s/o Joseph & Sarah.  Add. Latchford  Occ.Lab.

Standon  Marriage  27th November 1813 -
Joseph Cook & Sarah Warwick.  Witnesses James Cook, Mary Ann Cook and Samuel Pickett.  (Mr.Pickett must be a church official as he witnessed most marriages at the time.)

Wareside.  Baptism   4th May 1856  -
Henry Randell Cook   s/o David & Julia  occ. Lab.
(Name John crossed out and Henry inserted in the parish register)

Wareside.  Marriage  9th September 1851  after banns
David Cooke & Julia Randle.  Lab.  both from Babbs Green.
Fathers  Joseph Cooke, Lab and Edmund Randle, Brewer.
Witnesses. George Randle and Anne Randle.

Hope this will be of interest.   If you need any further parish lookups just let me know.

Regards  ...  Peter

Following up on your information from years ago !!
Do you have access to 1851 - 1861 1871 census ?
these two  from 1841 census  Newhall Farm, Babbs Green.
Thomas Cook  Head  23   Ag Lab Bn. Standon b circa 1818 
Maria Cook   Wife   23  Ware.
Were still at New Hall Farm 50 years later

Census 1891  New Hall Green No.2.
COOK    Thomas 64    Gardener(Em'ee)     Hertfordshire - Standon           
COOK     Maria   63               Hertfordshire - New Hall Green   
BUT were there children in the intervening years ?

I cant actually link them to my Cooks for certain yet as there seem to be  numerous families of Cooks around that area.  I do have a Thomas Cook son of John & Frances but the dates dont work
THOMAS COOK christening: 26 Dec  1790 FLAMSTEAD.
 I am also curious about the John Cook and Frances Howe marriage in 1790that you so kindly sent me . I cant find it on the  Hert excellent website  - https://www.hertsdirect.org/ufs/ufsmain?ebz=4_1403442724607&ebd=0
plus there are other John Cook & Frances marriages which fit better . 1st child
JOHN COOK christening:  30 August 1789 FLAMSTEAD,

John Cook  M Frances Humpreys at   Wheathampstead  4 Mar 1783
(Wheathampstead is in the City and District of St Albans, in the Hitchin and Harpenden parliamentary constituency.)

John Cook M Frances Parrat  in Great Gaddesden  8 May 1789  ( This seems a more likely choice given the birth dates for the children . Great Gaddesden is north of Hemel Hempstead. The parish borders to Flamstead, Hemel Hempstead, Nettleden and Little Gaddesden and also to Studham in Bedfordshire.)
?
