So we have still have in play auntie Ursula, but she had only one surviving son, who died in 1736. Ursula died in 1707.

Ursula Rooke will 1714. Was that her?

No, I think from memory that was Finch's wife who was also Ursula, not on my computer now but the will mentions her father and sister (I think).

And thanks for clearing up who the Major General was that died in 1725, it shows the problem with newspaper items, sometimes the editors didn't do a thorough job, so they are really only an indication of where to look for records.  :)

The son of Sir George Rooke - George Rooke (1702-1739)

My guess is that George b. 1701 also attended Eton or a similar school. Possibly attended another preparatory boarding school from a young age.

Plenty of schools in England by 1700.
Schools in Kent included:
Norton Knatchbull School at Ashford
Sevenoaks School
Cranbrook
Harvey's Grammar School, Folkstone
               ________________
Royal Hospital School was for sons of sailors. Doesn't seem young George was destined for a navy career so maybe not there. Perhaps if he'd been a younger son or from a less well-off family he might have been sent there.

Thank you for that information.
I have contacted today the Schools you have mentioned, fingers crossed.

Norton Knatchbull School at Ashford, might be the one, as Admiral George Rooke had married Catherine Knatchbull, in Jan. 1706

Latest effort of the Rooke family attached.

Chasing the schools for George's younger years of studying.

I wonder what he did once he obtained his B.A.?

And once he married where was he and what occupation did he have?

As for George's important care up to the age of 16?

The majority of his uncles and aunts had already passed away.

  Mary Rooke bapt. 1653, probably died in 1737. Mrs Mary Blashford, widow, buried St Paul, Canterbury, May 1737. I have not found a marriage, but she is named in the will as "my sister Blashford". If it is her she was over 80, but some people always managed that.

One of Lady Catherine Rooke's sons with her second husband , Henry Moor(e), was Admiral Sir John Moor(e), 1718-1779. Wikipedia states that he was educated at Whitchurch Grammar School , Shropshire. It might be worth trying to find where his 2 elder brothers were educated?

His eldest brother, Henry Moor died in 1729- at Cambridge- see a previous reply-, the next eldest was Revd Thomas Moore DD of Slow Hall Norfolk. There was also a sister -Mary who married Rev Dr Forester.

I found details of Lady Rooke's and Henry Moor's children from his obituary on 9 March 1770 in The Derby Mercury

Were there no children from Sir George's 1st marriage? Elder sisters of young George?
Have we discounted siblings of young George's mother?
The last attachment wouldn't open for me.

Thank you for the information.
Mary Rooke, would be Admiral Rooke's sister. You show baptised in 1653.
Though you say 'probably' died in 1737 from an article you mention.
Mrs Mary Blashford would be the same person, married.
