Overview

Excerpt from The Descendants of Rev. Thomas Hooker, Hartford, Connecticut, 1586-1908

The many warm friends in all parts of the Country to whom Commander Edward Hooker had endeared himself will be happy in having this result of his twenty-five years of earnest, painstaking labor at last available, and while he is not here to receive the thanks of his grateful kinsmen, nevertheless all descendants of Rev. Thomas Hooker surely unite in gratitude to him who gave time, money, and health so liberally in this permanent service to his family.

In preparing for the printer the work which blindness obliged him to leave incomplete, I have endeavored to follow his example of accuracy and honesty; in spite of this many errors and omissions may have unavoidably occurred and I shall be grateful to anyone who will call my attention to them, that they may be rectified in another edition.

The usual plan is followed in this Genealogy, of having the descendants numbered consecutively, the star (*) prefixed to the number indicating that the record of this person is carried forward another generation and will be found in the next generation under the same number, but in larger type and this time as head of a family.

A word regarding the Coat of Arms, the omission of which may cause comment, - Until the English ancestry of Thomas Hooker has been established, the Coat of Arms of the family cannot be given with authority. It may not be amiss, however, to give the one which has been most generally in use with different branches of the family - and which is also the arms of the Devonshire Hookers.

He beareth Or, a fesse Vaire, between two Lions passant gardant Sable. Crest a Hind statant Or, carrying in her mouth a branch of roses Argent, leaved and stalked Vert.
