Did Robert Hooke Have Any Children?

Robert Hooke, an English physicist, is not believed to have had any children. He was one of four children himself though little of his personal life as an adult is known.

Robert Hooke is primarily known for his discovery of the law of elasticity, which states that the stretching of a material is proportional to the force applied to that material. He also contributed to other fields of science but felt that many of his contributions were unfairly attributed to Isaac Newton. Historians know much more about his scientific accomplishments than his personal life. What is known relates to his parents and siblings and his upbringing on the Isle of Wright.
