Robert Hooke discovered the cell in 1665, when he viewed cork under a rudimentary microscope. However, he was not sure about the cell’s function and did not see all of the structures in the cell that we know about today. In 1674, Antony van Leeuwenhoek became the first man to view a cell under a microscope, while recognizing it as a living thing.
Robert C. Hooke (1635-1703) discovered the cell in corkwood while working on a commission for King Charles II to do a series of microscopic studies.
Although Robert Hooke was the first to discover a cell, what he observed was a dead plant cell. He thought it looked quite similar to cellulas, where monks lived and so the name began.
Later in 1674, Anton Van Leeuwenhoek examined the first living cell which happen to be algae and bacteria.
