(In Colonial Americans of Royal and Noble Descent, Alleged, Proven, and Disproven, by Patricia Ann Scherzinger, Heritage Books, 1996, Bowie, Maryland, Scherzinger finds "proof of alleged royal ancestry of James Tooke lacking". It appears she was not familar with and did not did not take the time to review the premier work stated above by Noel Currer-Briggs.)
Not only did Noel Currer-Briggs spend several years researching the records of the Tooke family of Hertfordshire, but in 2001, I also employed English genealogists to further research the Tooke records of all of England. The BEST evidence I have supports completely the work of Noel Currer-Briggs, and that of Robbie Lee Gillis Ross, who also employed English genealogists for several years (stated above).
In fact there were several wills of uncle's of James Tooke of Virginia who referred to him. See the will of Christopher Tooke, Uncle of James Tooke of Virginia. Christopher Tooke refers in his will to his nephew James Tooke.
THEREFORE TO DENY THE JAMES TOOKE OF VIRGINIA ANCESTRY, ONE WOULD HAVE TO DISPROVE THE "TOUR DE FORCE" WORK, "THE CARTERS OF VIRGINIA", BY NOEL CURRER-BRIGGS.
