The England batsman continued their domination on the second day, with Ian Bell and Joe Root also notching up half-centuries in what was a one-sided affair.
According to The Scotsman, England declared at 379 for six at tea as Cook and Bell retired to allow their fellow batsman time at the crease before the upcoming three-Test series against the West Indies.
Cook retired on 101, while Bell headed to the pavilion after a knock of 59.
Joe Root was sent packing after being given lbw on 64, with Ben Stokes making the most of his opportunity at the crease with a quickfire 41.
Gary Ballance showed no signs of an improvement in form after falling for just 16 against what could only be considered a modest bowling attack.
Just eight of the St Kitts side have first-class experience, and England coach Peter Moores would have been hoping for a more competitive hit-out.
England gave up on the game being a competive affair, with The Guardian reporting that the Three Lions had negotiated a deal with St Kitts to spend 90 overs in the field on Wednesday and bat all day on Thursday.
