John Hooke, Jr. was born 1607 in Norwich, Norfolk, England to John Hooke (c1580-) and Alice Thompson (c1580-) and died 1621 Onboard the Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor, Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts of unspecified causes.

Research Notes

On 7 January 1619/20 in Leiden, Holland, twelve-year old John Hooke was apprenticed to Isaac Allerton (1586-1658) for a period of twelve years. The apprenticeship record states that his parents were John Hooke and Alice Thompson. Their marriage record is found on 9 August 1605 at St. Peter Mancroft, Norwich, co. Norfolk, England. Isaac Allerton brought John Hooke with him on the Mayflower, but his 12 or 13-year old apprentice died the first winter at Plymouth Colony.
