Died: 4 Apr 1589, Burghley House, Strand, Middlesex, England

Buried: 21 Apr 1589, Westminster Abbey, Middlesex, England

Notes: Mildred was ranked with Lady Jane Grey for her erudition, known to speak Greek fluently, and had some fame as a translator. By the time Elizabeth Tudor became queen, Mildred had been the second wife of William Cecil, later Lord Burghley since Dec 1545. Mildred had six children, three of whom died young. She had charge of their education as well as that of the various wards her husband was responsible for, including the Earl of Essex and the Earl of Oxford. In a letter dated 29 Dec 1558, the Spanish Ambassador in England referred to Mildred as a "tiresome blue-stocking" (a learned lady). According to Christopher Hibbert's biography, "The Virgin Queen", Mildred had a shallow dent on the left side of her forehead and was rather hunchbacked.

Anne COOKE

Born: 1533, Gidea Hall, Essex, England

Died: 27 Aug 1610

Buried: ABT 27 Aug 1610 St. Michael's Church, St Albans, Hertfordshire, England

Notes: Cooke gave his five daughters an education equal to that of his sons. In 1559 William Bercher remarked their learning in "Nobylytye of Women", also did Elizabeth Tudor’s tutor, Roger Ascham. Anne is sometimes said to have helped her father in the task of educating Prince Edward, but at the time (1544) that Cooke took up the task, the prince’s household was exclusively male. Anne became the second wife of Sir Nicholas Bacon in 1553. According to Robert Tittler's "Nicholas Bacon: The Making of a Tudor Statesman", Anne and Nicholas visited Mary Tudor at Kenninghall in Jul 1553 and Anne stayed with the royal retinue as a gentlewoman of the bedchamber at least until William Cecil (her brother-in-law) met them near London. It is said that it was Anne Bacon’s presence at court that kept Cecil out of prison. Anne may have continued as one of Queen Mary’s ladies, in spite of the fact that her father was in exile for his religious beliefs for most of Mary’s reign. Her younger sister, Margaret, was later one of Mary's maids of honor. If Anne did continue to serve at court, her service must have been sporadic since she bore six children between 1554 and 1561. Only Anthony and Francis survived early childhood. Anne educated them herself until they entered Cambridge in 1573. As Anne grew older, she became obsessed with religion and was one of the wealthy widows who formed the backbone of English Puritanism. Throughout the latter part of her life she provided a haven at Gorhambury for radical preachers. In the last few years, fanaticism seems to have turned to insanity.

Catherine COOKE

Born: ABT 1530, Gidea Hall, Essex, England

Died: 27 Dec 1583

Notes: Catherine was proficient in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. She may have accompanied her father into exile during the reign of Mary Tudor. On 4 Nov 1565 she married Henry Killigrew. In the spring of 1566, he was sent to Scotland by Queen Elizabeth. Their life together included many such separations. Many of their letters survive, including one in which Catherine asks her sister Mildred, wife of Sir William Cecil, to prevent Killigrew from being sent abroad again. It is written in verse. She also corresponded with Edward Dering, the Puritan divine. Killigrew impoverished himself in royal service, but in 1573 he was granted the manor of Lanrake, Cornwall and from 1575 until Catherine’s death was in England. They had four daughters, and lived primarily at Killigrew’s estate at Hendon and his house in St. Paul’s Churchyard in London. Catherine was ill of the plague at Hendon in 1575 but it was childbirth that killed her. A stillborn son was born 21 Dec 1583 and she died six days later. Three prominent Puritans, Andrew Melville, William Charke, and Robert Formanus, wrote verses to go on her monument in the Church of St. Thomas the Apostle in London. Her sister Elizabeth and William Camden also wrote epitaphs.

Margaret COOKE

Born: 1541, Gidea Hall, Essex, England

Died: Aug 1558

Buried: 3 Aug 1558, St. Mary Staining, London, Middlesex, England

Notes: Margaret is the only one of the five sisters whose writings have not survived her and the only one who is not shown on the Cooke tomb in Romford Church in Essex. She married on the same day as her sister, Elizabeth, Monday, 27 Jun 1558, at a time when their father was still in exile in Frankfurt. Her husband, Sir Ralph Rowlett, is variously described as a London goldsmith and as a rich merchant of Gorhambury’s heir. One source gives his father as the Sir Ralph Rowlett, one of the masters of the mint to Henry VIII. Sadly, Margaret, and died within a few weeks of the ceremony. The diary of Henry Machyn supports that of Thomas Hoby in saying that, in spite of her family’s Protestant leanings, Margaret was one of Queen Mary’s maids of honor before her marriage.
