Elizabeth Mountague1,2,3

ID# 1851, (abt 1636 - 1708)
  • Note: Several older genealogies show Elizabeth as the daughter of Maurice Cocke, or in some, his father Nicholas. This error continues to be shown in many current sources, especially on the Internet, despite having been disproved over a century ago. That Maurice was Elizabeth's second husband is well documented.

    More recently, the immigrant Peter Mountague has been shown as her father, as I do here. There is considerable evidence suggestive of this, but none that I have seen that is conclusive. So I consider this link as the "most likely" candidate. I would be happy to correspond with others interested in examining the accuracy of this or any alternate claim.
