I am Moira Tooke, currently living in Birmingham, England and from a large family of Tooke's spread across England, with one of us now living in New Zealand.
I understand that my father's family came from the Norfolk area. This part of the Tooke family has conectionss to the Royal Air Force, with Grandfather, Father, Uncles and Brothers all serving. Part of the family now include McLean-Tooke's following some research into the family name.
We are 5 girls and 3 boys, unfortunately the elder boy is now deceased.There are plenty of male Tooke's to carry on the name - albeit some McLean-Tooke's.
My siblings are:
Francis Tooke - deceased with 3 sons Catherine Watson - nee Tooke - New Zealand Anthony Tooke - Birmingham 1 son & 1 daughter Phillip McLean-Tooke - Cambridgshire - 3 sons Pauline Lomax - nee Tooke - Rugby 1 son & 1 daughter Melissa Shakespeare - nee Tooke - B'ham - 1 son & 2 daughters Amanda Nicholls nee Tooke - Kent
