Cooke, Edward, LL.B.
an English divine, was rector of Haversham, Bucks. He was an able scholar, and particularly well-versed in whatever related to history, antiquities, and jurisprudence. Besides the History of Whaddon Chase, the publication of which was interrupted only by his death, he had made ample collections towards a history of Buckinghamshire, which would probably, had his life been spared, have been completed in a few years. He died February 27, 1824. See (Lond.) Annual Register, 1824, page 214.
