Hooker, Thomas

(probablemente, 7 jul. 1586, Markfield, Leicestershire, Inglaterra–7 jul. 1647, Hartford, Conn., EE.UU.).

Clérigo colonial angloamericano. Ejerció como pastor en Inglaterra (1620–30), donde se le atacó por sus tendencias puritanas. Huyó primero a Holanda y luego, en 1633, emigró a la colonia de Massachusetts Bay. Como pastor de una compañía de puritanos, en 1636 los trasladó a Connecticut para que se establecieran en Hartford. Colaboró en la redacción de las Órdenes fundamentales (1639), las que luego formaron la base de la constitución de Connecticut.
