JAMES NOKES (NOKE, NOAK, NOAKES) (d. 1692), an English actor, whose laughter-arousing genius is attested by Cibber and other contemporaries. Sir Martin Mar-all, Sir Davy Dunce and Sir Credulous Easy were among his favourite parts. His success as the Nurse in Nevil Payne's Fatal Jealousy was so great that he was thereafter nicknamed "Nurse Nokes."
