I have recently made contact with a number of Cloke, Cloak, Cloake cousins in the UK. It has been wonderful making contact especially as I live in Australia. It is exciting to get to know members of the family who live not far from Hythe in Kent, which is where so many of our ancestors came from.
I would like to get in touch with Shelley to chat with her. Could you please let me know her email address. I am about to make some changes to my web site adding some of the new data. I believe she did a lot of the original research. I do acknowledge her in my web page on the Clokes.

From Shelley in UK, 11 Nov 2002
I have been researching the CLOKEs of Hythe, Saltwood and surrounding area in Kent for quite a number of years and have some additional info on James and Sarah & family from the parish registers of Hythe and Saltwood in Kent:
James CLOKE was baptised Saltwood, Kent 16 Feb 1822 to William CLOKE and Sarah nee BRADLEY. James CLOKE married Alison Sarah BACK in Hythe, Kent 1843. James and Sarah had the following children before they emigrated:
Fanny bp 12 May 1844 Saltwood
William bp 25 Mar 1846 Saltwood bur 31 May 1846 Saltwood age 10 weeks.
Eliza Jane bp 21 Aug 1847 Saltwood (married Vincent Zarich in Australia)
Mary Ann bp 21 Aug 1847 Saltwood
James bp 2 Feb 1851 Hythe bur 20 Aug 1851 Hythe
They descend from the same family of CLOKEs as my husband.
Hope you have found this of some interest.
