Cook(e)/Kissock Family Bible
Contributed by Joe
The Bible was originally owned by Henry Cooke but bequeathed to his daughter, Minnie, who married Charles Sabra Kissock and the bible was handed down from that family. So for generations, it has been referred to as the 'Kissock Family Bible'. It will be noted that the bible contains entries with the surname of 'Cooke' and 'Cook' for some of the same individuals. Clearly the spelling of the name was in transition. All subsequent Civil records use 'Cook'. Also, it's a Catholic bible which led to it being hidden from view by most of it's Methodist owners - my grandmother kept it in a garage. Entries in [ ] added by the submitter.
