Luke Cocksedge

(12 April 1585 - )
     Luke Cocksedge was christened on 12 April 1585 in Norton, Suffolk. He was the son of Luke Cocksedge and Rachel Gooch.
     Luke Cocksedge married Frances Spark in 1616 in Hawstead, Suffolk. Frances Sparke was the daughter of a widow also named Frances Sparke. Frances, the mother, re-married in 1617 to yet another Sparke, one Henry Sparke, no doubt a close relation of her first husband of that same surname. Henry Sparke had a son, Robert, who proved not to be Robert Sparke the clockmaker. Henry also had a godson of that same name, Robert Sparke - we don't know who he was. Robert Sparke the clockmaker must surely have been related by marriage to Luke Cocksedge, but I have been unable to establish the exact relationship.
     He was mentioned in the will of John Baker the elder of Gt Ashfield 14 Jan 1627/8: I give to Ellizabeth my wife my house in Bradfeild St George in which Luke Cocksedge dwell ....
     Luke Cocksedge and Luke Cocksedge were named in the militia list taken in 1638 in Drinkstone. The 1638 militia list has only one Luke Coxhedge, at Drinkstone. This may be father or son Luke who would have been 18 and more likely for the militia but they had to be between 16 & 60.      
Luke Cocksedge paid 2/7/3 ship money in March 1639/40 in Drinkstone. He was a churchwarden in Drinkstone, Suffolk, in 1640.
     He appears to have been the clockmaker Luke Cocksedge. The age of the clock indicated it must have been made by Luke Cocksedge (II) of Bradfield St George, who was born in 1585 and who proved to be still alive in 1652.
Luke Cocksedge was born in 1585, married in 1616, had five children born between 1617 and 1628. Tragically his youngest son, Thomas Cocksedge, died in 1652 aged only twenty four. Luke Cocksedge was sixty seven years old when his son was buried. How much longer he lived after that I do not know, as my searches failed to locate his burial.
Robert Sparke (the only other known clockmaker of the period in Suffolk) was born before 1575 and was at least ten years older than Luke Cocksedge. Luke would have been apprenticed about 1599 at the age of about fourteen, when Sparke was twenty-four or older, and Sparke was the only person in the region, perhaps in the county, who could have taught him. Luke would have finished his seven year term about 1606, may have worked for Sparke for a year or two as was customary, or perhaps longer, before working for himself. By 1616 at the age of thirty-one Luke was sufficiently prosperous to marry. It may be that the Sparkes, father and son, and Luke Cocksedge worked mainly on church clocks, for there seems to be no recorded output by any of them, other than this present clock. Yet between them the two Sparkes worked at clockmaking it would seem for over sixty years. Add on the working life of Luke Cocksedge of about forty-five years or so, and we have a combined working life of over one hundred man years with only a single clock to show for it. When Robert Sparke died aged at least seventy three leaving the tools of his trade to his son, William, Luke Cocksedge was sixty three, William Sparkes was forty-eight. Unless they worked almost exclusively on church clocks, where, we might ask, are all the domestic clocks these men made in their lifetimes- which could only have been lantern clocks for there were no other kinds? We know the destruction rate of lantern clocks was high, but was it so high that no other example has yet been recorded from a combined working life of a hundred years?
. He was an executor of Thomas Cocksedge's estate on 13 February 1652/53 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury.
