Dedicated Web Site: Puramore - The Lute of Pythagoras

Sir Knight Anthony Cooke was Francis "Mayflower Compact" Cooke's grandfather (my direct ancestor).

He was a tutor-companion to Edward VI who was the first English king raised as a Protestant. A master of Greek and Latin languages, Edward knighted Anthony into the The Order of the Bath soon after his coronation.

He spent some time in the Tower of London because of his purported affiliation with Lady Jane Grey's (The Nine Days Queen) movement. Queen Mary later had her executed.

Sir Francis Bacon was his nephew.
