He was graduated at Oxford in 1620, was a minister at Exmouth, Devonshire, and came to this country about 1636. He was pastor of the church in Taunton, Massachusetts, soon after the settlement of that town in 1637, and remained there about seven years. He afterward was pastor at New Haven from 1644 till 1656, when he returned to England. Hooke was on terms of intimacy with Oliver Cromwell, had married his cousin, and became his domestic chaplain. He also had conferred upon him the mastership of Savoy hospital, Westminster. He published "Discourse on the Witnesses" and "New England's Tears for Old England's Fears" (1640).
