His father was an inn keeper, and Cooke arrived in London in 1722 and began working as a writer for the Whig causes. He associated with Thomas Tickell, Ambrose Philips, Leonard Welsted, Richard Steele, and John Defnnis, and Cooke is the source of one of the primary biographies of John Dennis, which he wrote in Latin. He was educated at Felsted.
