Thomas Cocke I, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Thomas Cocke I might describe his life as follows.

The son of Richard Cocke and Temperance Baley, I was born about 1639 for I swore 1 August 1685 that I was 46. 
My plantation, “Malvern Hills,” was on the James opposite Turkey Island. Here we had a flour mill, tobacco houses, orchards, two tanneries, and looms to make quality linen. Two centuries later, my property was the site of the bloody Civil War battle of 1 July 1862.
For a 17th Century colonist, I was quite wealthy. My estate, including what I advanced to my children before my death, encompassed some 5,000 acres of land.  Consequently, it was embarrassing when two men testified in court in 1662 that one of our servants ran away because my wife, “a very shrewd woman” as they called her, fed them all corn husks.
I had busy public life, serving as burgess, justice, sherif, and coroner at various times.
After the mother of my four sons and two daughters died, Peter Jones’ widow, Margaret, became my wife. Margaret’s stepfather was one of Virginia’s principal explorers and traders, Abraham Wood.
I was a sixty-year-old grandfather when I died. Among the legacies in my will was 1,000 pounds of tobacco—then our medium of exchange—towards purchasing a bell for the church.

More specifically, Cocke was a burgess representing Henrico County in 1677,  a county justice (1678, 1680),  sheriff (1680, 1688 ), and county coroner (1680).
In 1662 Edmund Davy testified in Charles City County that he had heard, “Mr. Thomas Cocke’s wife was a very shrewd woman to her servants and that she fed them with the husks that were sifted from the corn that was fitter to be given to horses than to Christians and that such her hard usage made one of her servants run away.” Daniel Pryor backed him up. 

Henrico County charged Cocke on 8 tithables in 1679. 

His plantations
He was Thomas Cocke of “Pickthorn Farm” in 1688 when he sold land that he and his brothers had inherited from their father to Thomas East. 
On 4 Oct. 1675 Mr. Thomas Cocke got patents for two tracts of land: 1,983 acres in Charles City County and 3,087 acres in Henrico County, the governor having granted the land in consideration of Thomas transporting 102 individuals to the Colony.  As Thomas Cocke Sr. he added 1,650 aces for 33 headrights 20 Oct. 1688, and 816 acres for 17 persons in 1689. 
The identity of the 1st wife of Thomas Cocke, the mother of his children, is unknown. We do know he married 2nd Margaret, a stepdaughter of Gen. Abraham Wood and the widow of Peter Jones.
The 1678 will of Hugh Mackmyell left to the daughters of Thomas Cocke, “my good friend and neighbor,” a black calf each.  In 1687 Thomas Cocke Sr. and Margaret, his wife, gave a 200-acre portion of “Malvern Hills” to his son of the same name. 

Was Thomas Cocke’s wife a daughter of James Powell?
The presence of the name James Powell Cocke among Thomas’ grandsons suggests his wife may have been a daughter of James Powell who was an old man in 1656 when the Charles City County court exempted him from future taxes.  At a deposition 1 Feb. 1658/9 he swore he was about 62 years of age and he was still living 20 Nov. 1665 when he witnessed a deed. 

Thomas Cocke’s will
Thomas Cocke made his will in Henrico County 10 Dec. 1691 devising 5,000 acres, his dwelling house, mill, tanyards, tobacco houses, orchards, slaves, gardens, and horses. He identified his 6 children including married daughters, Agnes Harwood and Temperance Harwood, and mentioned also several grandchildren. 
Thomas was dead by 1 April 1697 when they recorded his will and granted James Cocke and Margaret Cocke probate.
