Many family trees added to website


Over 100 family trees of people associated with James Cook are now available.
Genealogical information has been assembled to produce family trees of many people associated with James Cook.
Births, marriages and deaths indexes, census records and wills have been used when found.
Where possible, the information has been developed to show the ancestry and parentage of the men as well as their children and descendants. This enables us to know more about their backgrounds and suggest how they came to sail on Cook’s ships. It also allows us follow families down to the present day and confirm or deny provenances for artifacts, journals, etc., supposedly associated with Cook’s voyages that might surface at auctions.

They can be found from the Home page by scrolling to the bottom and clicking on The Crew.

Or by clicking on the Musters page, which can be found via the left-hand panel.

Hello Homer, sadly none of James Cook's children survived to marry and have children of their own, so that particular Cook family has no direct descendants. There were two other James Cook's serving in the Royal Navy in the late 18th century, and goodness knows how many more have served in the merchant navy over the years. So it is possible that your family is descended from A Captain Cook, but unfortunately not THE Captain Cook.
