GUESTBOOK
Crooke
There is a book available by PETER LAMBORN WILSON, "PIRATES UTOPIAS, MOORISH CORSAIRS AND EUROPEAN
RENEGADOES In which a chapter is devoted to my nine times great grandfather, Sir Thomas Crooke.

One sentence sums it all up, "RUN BY RESPECTABLE CROOKS LIKE SIR THOMAS CROOKE, WHO WERE SIMPLY
PARASITES ON PIRACY"!!!!!!

SIR THOMAS CROOKE took part in the creation of a Plantation in Munster, Cork. He founded an English colony in BALTIMORE and
set up a fishing industry. In 1631 Barbary pirates plundered the town and took captive the inhabitants.
See LORD of DEREEN and THE BALTIMORE RAID 1631
One of William's daughters was ALICE, who married HENRY LINDSEY of PEAKE. She was my 3rd great grandmother. Another
daughter Catherine married Webb Gillman of Lakeside, and 3rd daughter ANNE, married Patrick RONAYNE. Anne and Patrick's
grandson was CONFEDERATE GENERAL PATRICK RONAYNE CLEBURNE, who fought in American Civil War.

SOURCE. .... Information supplied by Mike Crooke


ALICIA CROOKE LINDSEY, daughter of ALICE and Henry Lindsey married THOMAS RADLEY ESQ."ROCKVILLE"
AGHABULLOGUE.CORK in 1816. They had 4 children, Margaret, who married 2nd cousin, JOHN LEADER MD, KEALE, MILLSTREET,
Alicia and Catherine, unknown, and my GREAT GRANDFATHER, RICHARD HENRY RADLEY, born 1820. Richard married 1853
ELIZABETH JANE ARMSTRONG and immigrated to Australia. General Cleburne was their 2nd cousin.


The name CROOKE is derived from Norse name meaning CROW (a favorite bird of the Norse god ODIN. The crow brought him
messages from around the world) Robert Croc came over to Scotland with Walter, the first High Steward. The place name
CROOKSTOWN, south west of Glasgow indicates a dwelling of Crook or Croc family (source…The surnames of Scotland Black 1946).

BY HOOK OR BY CROOKE…………….. In1605, an Englishman, Thomas Crooke purchased a lease from Sir Fineen O'Driscoll at
Baltimore. At his own expense, he brought out a whole town of English settlers, and established a fishing industry, with the intention
of trading with pirates.

In 1608 he was called before Privy Council in London and charged with dealing with pirates. He was acquitted.

Baltimore was the port most frequented by buccaneers, and the colony flourished from illicit trade. King James I occasionally sent out
a man of war, but the pirates managed to elude them, in swift Dutch built ships. At one time the Dutch asked permission from the
Crown to search for miscreants, but Thomas Crooke told them to be off.

Thomas Crooke became a Baronet in 1624. His wealth and prosperity were entirely due to his enterprise and lack of scruples, but
then, were not a lot of titles gained that way? His son, Sir Samuel, married Sir George Shurley's daughter. This probably accounted
for the demise in free-booting as Sir George was the Lord Chief Justice of Ireland.

Sir Thomas Crooke died in 1624 and the lease on Baltimore fell into the hands of Sir Walter Coppinger.

On14/4/1629 a deed of defeasance was signed by Sir Fineen and Sir Walter, so that English settlers remained in possession of their
leasehold property.

Sir Walter got possession of Fort Dun Na Sead (means fort of jewels)

REVEREND SAMUEL CROOKE of WRINGTON, SOMERSET.

Sir THOMAS CROOKE of Baltimore Ireland had a brother, SAMUEL, Rector of WRINGTON.

SAMUEL CROOKE's surviving sermons and books are mainly about Christian morality. He dealt only with fundamental questions and
is the only Somerset Clergyman to use the Doctrine of Covenant. He considered the Last Supper as solely a memorial.

He was a daily orator and clearness and conciseness of its content, were matched by his popularity amongst Puritans.
Crooke was
not a separatist, but was mistrustful of the Book of Common Prayer.
Pirate Treasure

FITZGERALD GENEALOGY

KILKEA CASTLE, located 5 km. n/w of Castledermot, was the stronghold of FITZGERALDS. Built c.1180. The castle is closely
associated with GERALD, 11th Earl, known as “WIZARD EARL” because he studied alchemy. He was half brother to “Silken
Thomas” 10th Earl, who was executed at Tyburn in 1537.

GERALD died in 1585 and tradition has it that he returns every seventh year, mounted on a white, silver shod horse and rides around
the castle.

A monkey is the crest of the Fitzgerald family. John Fitzthomas Fitzgerald, 1st earl who, because, as a child in 1200s, was saved

FITZGERALDS OF CASTLE DODD.

ROBERT FITZGERALD was descended from ancient English and Irish families. Robert’s grandfather, Richard Fitzgerald was
descended from Fitzthomas of Callan whose great grandson was the first Earl of Desmond. On his maternal side he was an
ANGLO/NORMAN PERCIVALL. His grandfather Richard, married Alice, youngest daughter of Richard Percival.. Hawes Crosse
married Mary, sister of Robert Fitzgerald about 1690. This unites the families of Radley/Crooke/Cross and Fitzgerald.

MURDER AT SHANDY HALL, DRIPSEY.

PHILIP HENRY EUSTCE CROSS was tried and found guilty for the murder of his wife, in 1887, Mary Laura
Marriott. Apparently he became infatuated with a 20 year old servant, called Effie Skinner. When the girl
became pregnant, he decided to poison his wife, and marry Miss Skinner. It would not have been remarked
upon,( as he was Dr. who attended his sick wife) had he not within a fortnight married Effie. The body was
exhumed and Mrs Cross was found to have been poisioned. He was tried and hung in 1888.

At Wrington, the rector, SAMUEL CROOKE, was a very strong Puritan and his preaching resulted in a very pious neighbourhood.
Crooke and Conant of Limington were chosen as representatives of Somerset by the Assembly of Divines regarding the reformed
Church.. The victorious Royalist party in 1643 put an end to Puritan party in Somerset. In 1643 Crooke of Wrington was tyrannized by
soldiers and thugs,in his own house for not complying with their policies. Crooke was obliged to subscribe to a declaration of 8 articles
asserting resistance to King was unlawful and that he was opposed to defacing churches and images and condemning the Book of
Common Prayer and he pledged to preach a sermon both at Wells and Wrington upholding these views. 1647 Petition (Bath and

DEATH OF DR WILLIAM CROOKE.

Among our obituary notices is issue of 23rd inst. Of a well known Hobart Politician and professional man in the old days when Sir John
FRANKLIN and Mr William Damison were pro-consuls Dr.William Crooke, to whom we refer, died at St Vincent;s Hospital,
Melbourne.on 19th instant, having reached the ripe age of 85 years

.***** The doctor arrived in Tasmania, then Van Dieman's Land, about 1843 and joined his uncle the REV.R.GIBBS who was farming at
Bruni Island.*******

Soon after the young doctor was appointed Resident Surgeon of the Hobert General Hospital, situated on the site of the present Lands
and Works Dept. And conveniently adjacent to Gaol. Opposite the present Treasury and near St Davids Church yard .Upon leaving
Hospital DR CROOKE commenced practice in Elizabeth St where Mr Weaver's Chemist shop now stands and practiced there until he
left the colony for Victoria in 1857. He afterwards practiced in Fitzroy, Melbourne, for over 48 years, but during the last two years had
practiced in Sydney where he had relatives. His death occurred in Melbourne whilst visiting that city. The late Dr.Crooke's practice was
of an extensive nature. For one thing he practiced in three Australian Capital cities, Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney. He was at work,
without cessation. 48 years, Added to that his energy was so great that at least 45 years of that period he visited his patients at 5 a.m
and had done half his rounds before most medical men had swallowed their breakfast. The Dr. Is still and most warmly remembered by
many old residents of Hobart. While in charge of Hobart Hospital, he sent consumptive patients away as incurable. He sent convict
consumptives to Cascade Hospital to die, but found that with fresh air, good food and no work, the lungs healed.The late Doctor was an
example of the dictum "Physician heal thyself" It is doubtful whether, except for an attack of influenza, the Dr. had a day's illness in his
life. This he attributed to the fact that he never exceeded two meals a day,frequently took but one, and was always moderate with his
liquor. His splendid physique and iron constitution probably had more to do with the matter than rules. Dr.Crooke, was with the Hon.
Adye Douglas and others, in the early 1850's a member of Legislative Council of Tasmania that preceded responsible government. The
story of his Homeric struggle with DR.OFFICER for election for Hobart to the days when colours, bands, dead cats, rotten eggs and
broken windows were ordinary election accompaniments, is yet to be told by old Hobart citizens. Dr Crooke has always claimed that the
proposal to change the name of the Colony from Van Dieman's Land to Tasmania was his suggestion. When the new constitution was
introduced in 1866 Dr.Crooke was elected first member for Franklin without much opposition.

**********THOSE WHO THINK MUCH OF COINCIDENCES MAY NOTE THAT DR.CROOKE'S ANCESTOR SIR THOMAS CROOKE,
WAS THE FIRST MEMBER FOR CORK, THE MOST SOUTHERN PART OF IRELAND IN THE IRISH PARLIAMENT.********

DR.CROOKE married the only daughter of Mr. McLanarhan M.I.D Tasmania and has two surviving sons Mr.Warren Crooke, Brisbane
and Mr Garry Crooke, Surveyor.

William CROOKE and Elizabeth Hawes CROSS, my 4x Great Grandparents acquired DEREEN HOUSE about 1740 on a lease for
2,999 years. It was paid for in a transaction by Epenitus Crooke as part of his sister's marriage settlement, as well as funds from her
husband (William). Jane Moore Cross lived there until 1890. She married Simon Davies Crooke who was great grandson of William
Crooke. Jane was descended from both Elizabeth Hawes Cross' brother and sister Catherine Cross.
