A step too far Captain James Cook Endeavor information.
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 06:44 BST (UK) »
My relatives Jutsum/Jutson from Exeter and possibly Plymouth . My relative was a gunsmith in St Thomas Apostle in Exeter . His son was William Cook Jutsum born two weeks after Captain James Cook returned on the Endeavour into Plymouth . Is it a stretch to far to think William Cook Jutsum may have been named after James Cook or that his father as a gunsmith may have worked in some capacity in the sail boat capacity . We do have a vague link to Cook in Devon but I have been unable to connect to my family so just thinking out of the square . Thanks . I will do some googling but was hoping there might be a Captain Cook expert on here . Bye Fred .
