Question on history of mechanics

A question for those interested in the history of mechanics. We have Hooke's law for 2D stress-strain and a generalised Hooke's law for 3D stress states. Maybe I have missed something in my reading of history, but since it appears that it was Thomas Young and not Hooke who related stress and strain (Hooke looked only at force - displacement), why don't we use Young's law or a generalised Young's law?
