Cooke Sir Anthony

Cooke, Sir Anthony, was born about 1506, and, having acquired in early life a high reputation for morality and learning, was appointed tutor to Edward VI. On the accession of Mary, his Protestantism and the support he gave to Lady Jane Grey led him into voluntary exile, from which he returned in 1558. Of his three daughters, Mildred married Lord Burleigh, Anne Sir Nicholas Bacon, father of Lord Bacon, and Elizabeth a son of the second Earl of Bedford. He died in 1576.
