Founder of the Cooke family in England was Johann Bernhard Guck from Frankfurt/Main, who worked in St. Petersburg, Russia as a confectioner, until his return to Germany in May 1758: he subsequently settled in London and became a very succesful sugar merchant. Married to Maria Anna White, he had numerous children, among which William Bernhard and George (father of Edward William), both gifted engravers: their sister Lucy married a German, John Leonard Shukard, landlord in Brighton, where the Cooke family regularly stayed in the summer and where Edward came into contact with the sea; his father George married in 1808 in Islington to his mother Elizabeth Harriet Eglinton: the couple got 9 daughters (4 survived till adulthood) and 2 sons, Edward being the second (Munday 1996); father of engraver and illustrator William Bernard Cooke
