I relate to this family in a somewhat "removed way but I am still very interested in the Looke/Look surname.

I relate in a way to Israel, son of Jonathan and Elizabeth Walliford. Jonathan had a son Israel who married 1st Mehitable/Mehetable Harrod, 2nd Francis Ellsworth. After Israel
died his wife Francis(Ellsworth) Looke m. my 6th great grandfather Thomas Sargent of Boston. Apparently when he married Francis, he bought the Estate from Francis(who Israel left the entire estate to in his will) and sold it again to Gibbins Sharp, I have no idea if this Gibbins had any relationship to Thomas Sargent.

Does anyone know if Thomas Looke(the Sr) was related to the William Lukes/Lux/Looke who is mentioned in the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and NH and lived in Maine first before Massachusetts? Were these Lookes from England or Scotland?
