My X 5 Great Grandmother

My 5 X great Grandmother, Margaret Cook was born in Pickhill in 1713.

She was baptised at the parish church on 13th August 1713. Her father was John Cook.

And that’s all I know about her early life until her marriage to Christopher Buckle in 1737.

Just for reference, the monarch when Margaret Cook was born was Queen Anne.

It’s highly likely that Margaret’s family were agricultural labourers and that Margaret herself was occupied in working on the land or in domestic service. And we probably have a better idea what the Queen looked like than Margaret did herself!

But on 10th April 1737, Christopher Buckle and Margaret Cook were married. Watch this space!
