Of the ** Genealogical History of Families," Sir Robert Atkyns writes : " This has its peculiar 
use ; it stimulates and excites the brave to imitate the generous actions of tlieir ancestors ; 
and it shames the debauched and reprobate, both in the eyes of others and in their own breasts, 
when they consider how they have degenerated."— Page II., Preface to The Ancient and Present

Tffls compilation is founded on a curious and valuable record, 
entitled, " The Pedigree of the worthye Captaine and Justiciar, Sir 
William Cole, of Eneskillen, Knight ; made and set forthe, with 
much care and fidelitye ; warranted by Eecords, Evidences, and 
other good proofes, examined, approved, and well allowed of by me 
Sir William Segar, Knt., alias Garter. And in assured testimony 
to all persons whoe shall see the same, that it doth agree in all the 
descents, coats, and Ensignes, with the Eegisters Bookes and Eecords 
of my Office, and the Office of Arms and Honor, kept at London; I, 
the said Sir William Segar, alias Garter, Principall King of Armes, 
have hereunto subscribed my name and affixed the Scale of myne 
Office, this 30th day of Julye, An** Domini 1630, Annoque Sexti 
Domini nostri Caroli, magnse Britannise, Francise, et Hibemise 
Eegis, Fidei defensor, etc." 

Wm. Willoughby, the 1st Visct. Enniskillen, reduced it into a 
narrative form for the Eev. Mervyn Archball's edition of John 
Lodge's Irish Peerage (8® London, 1789); and his lordship's system 
and phraseology are here freely made use of, as they were also, 
though without acknowledgment, in Playfair's British Family 
Antiquity (fo. Lond. 1810). 


Since then, however, it has been, so far as relates to the noble 
line of Enniskillen, extended down to the present time, and attested 
under the seals of their office by Sir Win. Betham, and Sir J. 
Bernard Burke, Ulster Kings at Arms. These additions together 
with some particulars derived from the publications of the Eecord 
Commissioners, &c., are introduced ; and the continuation of the 
other branches has been made from the Heralds* Visitations, Wills, 
Parish Registers, Monumental Inscriptions and other ancient evi- 
dences. They have been carefully collated, and, where possible, 
tested with the originals, so that it is hoped that no inaccuracies 
may occur, or such only as are inseparable from a labour of this

Much ingenious speculation has been expended on the origin 
and signification of the name of Cole. In A New System, or an 
Analysis of Ancient Mytlwlogy, by Jacob Bryant of Cypenham, is 
an elaborate dissertation thereon, consisting of more than three 
quarto pages, wherein he shews it to be the same as Coit-El, or 
Co-El, Heavenly, or the House or Eegion of the Deity ; for the 
place of worship was, in many instances, taken for the person to 
whom the worship was directed. He says that Coilus, from Coel, 
the old Latin form of Coelus, meant " a sacred or heavenly person, 
in other words, a priest of Coelus." 

The learned Camden says that Cole is formed from the last 
syllables of Nicholas ; and M. A. Lower, in his Essay on Nom&nr- 
cloture* copies tliis statement. 

It is, however, more likely to be a contraction of Agricola, a 
tiller of the soil, as Cola occurs in the Domesday Survey}- as the 
holder of much land in the counties of Hants, Devon, Wilts, etc., 
in the reign of King Edward the Confessor; but this derivation 
has evidently been passed over as too simple to be adopted by the 
above eminent writers.

It hath been asserted that this family derives its origin from 
Coel, the founder of Colchester, one of the Kings of Britain. Yet 
without claiming as its patriarch either this renowned descendant 
of Caractacus, or the Justice Cole, who lived in the reign of King 
Alfred, or the valiant General Cola, who, in command of the united 
forces of Devon, Somerset, and Dorset, defeated at Pinhoe,* in 1001, 
Sweyne, the savage Chieftain of the Danes, its high antiquity and 
rank amongst the magnates of the land in Saxon times are attested 
by Domesday Book, and, by " This deed of King William's, the 
Conqueror, [which] was written in the Saxon Tongue, 5® W. C. 
1070, and was put into EngUsh 1587, 15* Maij, A* 27 Eeg. Eliza-

"This is in the Inspeximus of the Charters of confirmacions

The precise period of the settlement of this baron on the borders 
of the counties of Devon and Cornwall is not ascertained, but it 
was, doubtless, soon after the above date, as he accompanied the 
bold Martin de Tours (or Turribus) from hence, on his marauding 
expedition into Cemaes, South Wales, and was ancestor of the 
families of Cole, Young, and Mathias.* 

William Cole and Ysabella-f* his wife are named in Assize EoU 
of the County of Cornwall, in the third year of King John (anno 
domini 1201). In the fourteenth year of King John (1212) Eoger 
ColeJ granted to Edith, late wife of Ealph Burdeville, a capital 

messuage and lands in Hoke , in the county of Devon, to be 

held of him for the term of her life, with remainder to himself and 
his heirs ; and in 1219 mention is made of Eoger Cole in a Fine roll 
relating to a third part of one knight's fee in Hardwinesleigh,§ in 
the same county. 

" Eichard Cole, of the County of Devon,'' says Segar, " lived in 
the tyme of Henry III., as appears by the Charter (to the Monas- 
tery of Bromere) of Amice Eedvers, Countess of Devon." But it is 
not known what relationship he, or the above-named persons, bore to 

William Cole, of Hutenesleigh (now called Hittisleigh) in the 
county of Devon, living in the year 121'3, whose son and heir

2 Roger Cole,* had " his dwelling at Coleton," in Chuinleigh, and 
also held, in 27 Henry IIL, Hantesford, in that parish.f In 25th of 
Edward I. he was " returned from the county of Cornwall as hold- 
ing lands or rents to the amount of d£^20 yearly value and 
upwards, either in Capite or otherwise, and as such summoned 
under the general writ to muster at London, on Sunday next after 
the Octaves of St. John the Baptist (7 July, 1297), to perform 
Military Service in person with horses and arms, &c., in parts be- 
yond the Seas ;" J and also again summoned with his son William§ 
to muster at Berwick-on-Tweed, on the nativity of St. John the 
Baptist, to perform service against theScots in 1301. He was 
father of 

3 EoGEB (of whom immediately), and of the above-named William, 
who probably perished in this expedition, as there is no further trace 
of him ; and perhaps his early death may account for the omission 
of his name. in the family pedigree drawn up, in July 1630, by Sir 
William Segar, Garter, King-at-Arms. 

3 EoGER was heir to his father Eoger, and lived in the reign df 
Edward II. ; his son and heir was 

4 John Cole, of the counties of Devon and Cornwall, who, in 
1324, was described as "John Cole de Tamer, Man-at-Arms, || and 

? Arms of Cole : Arg., a bull passant Sa., armed Or, with a bordure of the second

And it's conceived he gave the same bordure to this or one of the Auncestors of 
this family of Cole, as an augmentation for services in the Warres."

§ He was perhaps the "William Cole of Tamar, knt., temp. Edward L," of 
whom mention is made at p. 51, of Sir William de la Pole's History of Devon. 
License to " crenellate" Tamar was granted in 9th Edward IIL No remains of 
this castle now exist, nor can its site with certainty be determined. It is believed, 
however, that a manor in Werrington, known in modem times as Poolapit-Tamar 
was the one indicated ; and this assumption is confirmed by the fact of there being 
in the same parish farms called ** Coleshill," and " Great and Little Tamerton.'

returned by the Sheriff of the county of Devon, pursuant to Writ 
tested at Westminster, 9 May, as summoned by proclamation to 
attend the Great Council at Westminster, on Wednesday after 
Ascension Day, 30 May, 17 Edward 11." In the 9th of Edward III 
(1335) he had free warren in Tamer, Lydeston, Hokesbere, and 
Hutenesleigh in the county of Devon, and in Eispematt ;* and it ap- 
pears by a Fine of 15 Edward III. (1341) that he was possessed of 
the manors of Eespnel in the county of Cornwall, Launceston, and 
Stokley, and of the manor of Uptamer, Nytheway, and Hutene- 
sleigh, the third part of the manor of Winston, and divers other 
lands in the county of Devon. He left a son and heir. 

Sir John Cole, knight, of Nythway, in the parish of Brixham, 
who, on 25th July, 4 Eichard 11. (1380) was "knighted (before the 
castle of Ardres) in Fraunce, by the Erl of Buckingham Thomas 
of Woodstock, Lord Deputy there for the King,"-f* and who married 
Anne, daughter and heiress to Sir Nicholas Bodrugan,J knt., by 
whom he had issue,

Johnes' ed. 8vo, 1806. 

t The manor of Bodrigan (anciently written Bodrugan), in Gorrans, says Carew, 
gave a name and seat to a very ancient family. In the time of K. Henry III. John 
de Bodrugan occurs as witness to a deed, and in the same reign Henry de B. 
had a grant of a market and fair at Pendrum. Of the latter person notice is also 
made in a deed of the Trevelyan family of the 2 K. Ed. I. 

Another Henry de B, (probably his son), married Sibylla, sister and heir to 
Walter de Maundeville, of whose lands he had livery 17 Ed. I. : in 2 Ed. II. he 
was found heir to his uncle, William de B. (who had died the year before), and had 
livery of the inheritance which thus devolved on him ; but it appears that he died 
the same year, for the king's escheator had command to take possession of all his 
lands, among which was the manor of Bodrugan, as also those of his late uncle, 
and of the lands of the said Sibylla, which were in co. Beds. He had been a knight 
of the shire in 35 Ed. I. ; and in 3 Ed. II. (1310) was summoned to parliament as a 
Baron ; but as he died about this time, and never sat in that capacity, it is thought 
that his death and the writ may have been of a contemporaneous date, or that it 
was issued in ignorance of his decease. He was found to be seised of the manor of 
Iregerien, &c., in Clornwall, and of all the tenements, rents, and services, of the 


6 WiiLLLAM Cole (called Sir William Cole of Tamar, knt., by De 
la Pole, and also in a Herald's Visitation of Devon), who married 
Margaret, daughter of Sir Henry Beaupell, knt, and by her was the 
father of 

His son Sir Otto de B. was in 17 and 19 Ed. IL a knight of the shire ; and 20 
Ed. L had custody of the island of Lundy with its appendages committed to his 
charge. In 1324 he went by the king's license on a pilgrimage to the Church of 
St. James in Spain. He married Margaret, daughter of Sir William Champemon, 
knt., and died possessed of B., and of a considerable estate in Cornwall in 6 Ed. III. ; 
at which date his son and heir Sir Henry de B. was likewise deceased. This last 
named knight married Isabell, daughter of William Wallesborow of Whalesborough, 
and had three sons, viz,, Sir William, his heir (who married Julian, daughter of Sir 
John Stoner of Stoner, co. Oxon, knt., and had a daughter and heiress, Philippa, 
who married Sir Kichard Sergeaulx, knt., sheriff of Cornwall in 1389) ; Sir Otto or 
Otho, sheriff of ComwaU in 3 Rd. II., knt. of the shire 43 Ed. III., and 7 Rd. II. 
(who was father of William, knt. of the shire 3, 4, 5, 8 and 9 of Henry V., who 
died 8. p.f and of Otho, who became heir to his brother) ; Nicholas, the 3rd son, 
died in 1362, and had 2 sons, viz, Otho and Nicholas. Otho married Jane, daughter of 
WilHam Trelausard, and by her had Joane, his heir, who married four husbands : — 
1st, Sir John Trevaignon, knt., who died s.p. ; 2ndly, Ralph Trenowith (by whom 
before marriage she had a son William, who bore the name of Bodrugan, and the 
arms of his mother (" within a bordure ") ; he possessed himself of aU her inheritance, 
and had issue Sir William B., knt., who died 24 Dec. 20 Henry VI., whose son and 
heir. Sir Henry B., was attainted of treason 1 Henry VII.) ; 3rdly, Sir John 
Trevarthian, kut., by whom she had issue, Otho Trevarthian, his son and heir, who 
died s.p.f and Vidona (heir to her brother) married to — Reskymer, and had Ralph 
R. ; 4thly, Robert Hull, who survived her. 

Nicholas, the 2nd son of Nicholas, the 3rd son of Sir Henry B., knt., married and 
left a daughter and heir, who became the wife of Sir John Cole of Nythway. 
Segar remarks that " This match of Sir John Cole, knt., with the daughter and 
heiress of Nicholas Bodrugan and the descents following ar^ proved by divers 
auncient Rolls, Bookes, and Pedigrees, remaining in the Office of Arms, London, 

The quarterings brought to Cole by this match were, according to Segar, 1 
Bodrugan, Arg. 3 bends Gu. ; 2 Scott, Arg. an eagle displayed Sa., armed Gu. ; 
3 Stapleton, Arg. a lion rampant Sa., armed Gu; 4 Trevaner, Arg. a cross flory 
Sa. ; but it appears the Bodrugans were also entitled to quarter the coat of 
MaundeviUe, viz., Quarterly Or and Gu. 

Sir Henry Trenowith alias Bodrugan (aboved named) married Jane (or Margaret) 
Herbert, daughter of the 1st Earl of Pembroke, and was made a Knight of the 
Bath by king Edw. IV. He fought at Bosworth on the side of Rd. III. Accounts 
of his romantic escape from king Henry's officers by an extraordinary leap, from 
the cliff on which Bodrugan castle was situate, on to the " Wofiil Moor," and of 
his malediction on his pursuers Trevaignon and Sir Richard Edgecumbe, the 


7 Sir John Cole, knt, who was in " the Eetynew of the Duke of 
Gloucester * at the Battell of Agincourt on Fryday, the XXVth 
day of October in the yere of our Lord God, 1415, and in the 
Third yere of the Eeigne of the most Excellent Prince, King 
Harry the Fifte ;" and it is probable that he received his spurs for 
his conduct on that glorious field. He married Agnes, daughter of 

Sir Fitzwarine, knt., and had issue four sons, viz : — 

I. Sir Adam Cole, knt., his heir, who succeeded at Uptamer and Nyth- 
way, and marrying Elizabeth,-f- daughter of Sir Eichard Weston, 
knt, had a son John, the father of John, who left issue only two 
daughters, his co-heirs, viz. : — Elizabeth, married to Sir John 
Huddy, of Stowell, co. Somerset, Chief Justice of England ; and 

Joane, married to John Anne of co, Gloucester. Sir 

Adam also married Margaret, -f* daughter of Sir Henry de la 

grantees of his confiscated estates (said to have been of the annual value of ten 
thcmsand pounds), may be found in Carew*s and Gilbert's Surveys of Cornwall, 
Borlase in describing the ruins of Bodrugan castle, says, '* there was nothing in 
ComwaU equal to it for magnificence." 

* JIarl, M.8, no. 782, and M.S. in Coll. of ArmSy published by Sir Nicholas 
Harris Nicolas, K.H., under the title of The Battle of Agincourt, 2nd ed. Lond, 

+ There is a discrepancy amongst the authorities as to the name of the wife of 
Sir Adam Cole ; for Sir Wm. De la Pole, at p. 282 of his History of Devonshire, gives 
it as Margaret (the daughter of Sir Henry de la Pomeroy, knt.), whilst the Visita- 
tions of Devon, in 1562-4-5, and 1620 (Harl : MSS. 1538-889-1080-1091-1399-3288- 
4031-5185), and Segar, in the pedigree that he compiled for Sir Wm. Cole, as'sert it 
to be Elizabeth, the daughter of Sir Eichard Weston, knt., of Wilts. 

It is quite possible that they all maybe correct, and that he may have taken to wife 
both Elizabeth and Margaret, as stated in the text. This supposition is supported 
by the abstract of a deed, which recites that ** Sir Adam Cole and Margaret, his 
wife, granted," &c., &c. 
. Whoever she may have been, it is obvious that Segar could never have supposed 
Ac that the dat^ttached to that deed, 3 Richard II. (1380), could be any where near the 
period when Sir Adam existed. For it is not possible that he could have been 
living about that time, and yet be the 7th in descent from Wm. Cole of Hutenes- 
leigh, who lived in 1243, only 145 years previously ; or that he could be the uncle 
of Sir Simon Cole of Blade, who died circa 12 Henry VII. (1497), more than 117 
years afterwards. These dates are reliable, and the relationships are attested by Segar 
himself. It is clear therefore that he has unwittingly committed an anachronism with 
regard to this knight. This was owing, perhaps, to there having been an Adam Cole, 
who lived about 1380, and who, it appears, from Kymer's Fadera, vol. III., part 2, 


Pomeroy, knt., and their sole daughter,* married John 

Holbeame of Holbeame, in co. Devon, esq., and had issue William 
Holbeamef, Sir William de la Pole adds, "from Margaret, wife 
of Adam Cole, is descended Baynham of Gloucestershire." 

8 II. John Cole, of whom hereafter (see p. 12). 

8 III. William Cole,J who married and had two sons, William 9 
(of whom hereafter), and Stephen, his heir, who married 

p. 1078, was charged by King Edward III., by letter, dated 14 May, in the 51st 
year of that monarch's reign (1377), to prevent the landing of the French on the 
coast of Devon. At p. 1002 of vol. III. of the Fcedera^ it is stated that this (?) 
Adam, in 48 Edward III., a.d. 1377, was master of the ship " Le Christophre" of 
Southampton. These entries sufl&ciently prove that he could not be the same person 
as the Sir Adam Cole of Uptamer. 

The name seems to have been a favourite one, for in 1305 and 1307, there was an 
Adam Cole, who was the Burgess returned to Parliament for Ilchester, in Somerset- 
shire, (Palgrave's WritH of Summons^ &c.). Clutterbuck's Hertfordshire^ also 
makes mention of an Adam Cole who, in 1277, held a moiety of 1 virgate of 
land inWalkened, Herts ; the other moiety being held by Robert Cole. 

Since the above was written, I have met with this extract at p. 417 Harl. MS.

In the Coll. Top. et GenecUog,, voL 7, p. 55, it is stated that this John Cole, esq., 
died s.p. shortly after the division of the Pomeroy estates between himself and 
Joan, wife of Sir Thomas Pomeroy, and before the 2 Henry VI. 

The de la Pomerais, or Pomeroys, were summoned to Parliament as Barons for 
nearly three centuries. Henry de Pomeroy, the 6th Lord, married Joane, daughter 
of Roger, 3rd Lord, and sister and co-heiress to Roger, 7th Lord Valletort, "the 
great Barons of the West."

of the same place, J. P. for Middlesex and Surrey, who died in 1790, aged 83, 
leaving issue by his first wife, Frances, daughter of Commodore Laremar, a son 
Thomas Rea Cole, major 9Sth Regiment, the grandfather of the late Edward Henry 
Cole of Stoke Lyne, Oxon, and also of Owen Blayney Cole, deputy-lieutenant 

for the county of Monaghan. By his second wife, Catherine, daughter of 

Cary of Bath, Stephen Cole had (besides other children) Charles Cole, rector of 
Statton, Suffolk, and George Cole, M.A., of St. John's CoUege, Cambridge, formerly 
captain in the CornwaU Militia, who married Solly, daughter of Captain Crozier,

George, the before-mentioned (on p. 17) son of Gregory and Jane 
Cole^ succeeded not only to Buckishe and other property in 
Devon, but also to the "Eectorial Glebe'** estate at Enstone

being *Talium est Eegnum Coelorum.' In May, 1703, in five

in the County of Devon, Esquire, who departed this life the 
17th of December, 1756, aged 67. And also the body of 
Sophia Cole, Widow and Eelict of the said Edward Cole, who 
departed this life the 18th Nov : 1757, aged 47. She was 
the daughter of Hugh Parker, Esquire, eldest son of Sir Henry 
Parker, of Honington, in the county of Warwick, Baronet, and 
sister to the present Sir Henry John Parker, Baronef 

Johanna Cole, who was born in 1704*, married into the family of 
the Loggins of Warwickshire, and her son the Eev. William 
Loggin of Long Marston, Gloucestershire, succeeded on the 
death of the Eev. Potter Cole to the estates of the Cole family 
in Devonshire, etc., and by virtue of an Act of Parliament, 
which received the royal assent on 26 June, 1802, was "enabled 
to take the name and to bear the arms of Cole, pursuant to the 
will of his late Uncle Edward Cole, Esquire." Mr. Loggin-Cole 
left a son, the Eev. William Loggin, who is described as 

"William Loggin, gent., of the parish of Halford, in the county of 
Warwick/' at the time of his marriage with Mary, the youngest 
daughter of Nicholas Marshall, D.L., for the county of Oxon (by 
Eleanour, his wife, daughter of John Coxwell, of Ablington 
house, in the county of Gloucester) and left one son, who in his turn 
also left one, Mr. Nicholas Marshall Loggin, who is at this 
time the male representative of the families of Cole and Loggin. 

Potter Cole, MA., entered into holy orders, and was sometime 
Sector of Alderley, Gloucestershire, where his wife Frances, 
daughter of Mrs. Frances Paske, died at the age of 24, on the 
21st of May, 1733. He was also Vicar of Hawkesbury, in the 
same county, for the period of 73 years ; and, says a writer in 
the Oentleman's Magazine " passed his long life in the constant 
and uniform "practice of every christian duty. He was never 
absent from his parish for the space of one month at any time, 
and never advanced the rent of the tythes of anyone of his 
parishioners during his long incumbency. He was a friend to 
several public charities, and his private donations were a 


peipetual source of comfort to the widow and the fatherless. 
The poor of his own and the neighbouring parishes were almost 
daily partakers of his bounty; particularly during the late 
years of scarcity ; and have great cause deeply to deplore the 
loss of their benefactor." He was married four times, but left 
no surviving issue. According to a monument in the church 
at Hawkesbury, he had by his wife Sarah (Arnold) a son, 
Harry, who died 12 June, 1756, aged 15 years, Elizabeth, 
who died 16 March, 1762, aged 23 years, and Frances, who 
died 15 May 1768, aged 16 years. He died 24 March, 1802, 
having nearly attained the great age of 97 years, " as (continues 
Mr. Jordan) I have learned from a friend who knew and 
visited him only two years before his death; when although 
debilitated from age and some natural afflictions, he retained 
much of the vigour of mind and politeness of manner by which 
he had been distinguished." The Eev. Edward Marshall, of 
Sandford Manor House, Oxon, possesses a sketch of him, 
which was considered a very faithful portrait ; and which, though 
made in his 95th year, represents him as a man of much in- 
telligence and power. 

9 William Cole (before-mentioned on p. 12) younger son of John, 
and grandson of Sir John Cole, knt, married Elizabeth, 
daughter of Sir Eichard Weston of Wiltshire, knt., and by her 
had a son and heir, 

10 John Cole, who married Mary, daughter and heiress to Thomas 
Archdeacon,* alias Ercedekne of Devon, gent., and had issue, 

• The name of this ancient and noble family, which gare five knights of the shire 
to Cornwall, has been in different ages spelt in various ways; but TArcedekne, and 
Erchdeken seem to have been the most usual. The family was originally of Devon, 
but afterwards became by inheritance possessed of ** two noble seats in Cornwall ; 
of which the castle of Ruan-Lanihome, then called Shepestall, was perhaps the 
most superb." In later times, however, the manor of East j^thony, which was 
obtained by marriage with the heiress of D'Auney, became the chief residence of 
this house. 

In the reign of Henry III. Sir Michael Erchdekne owned the manor of Show- 
brooke in Devon, which, it is supposed, was acquired through a marriage with the 
heiress of the ClaveUs, who had been lords thereof from the time of the Norman 


11 Thomas Cole of London, who died April, 1571. He married 
Elizabetli, daughter of Thomas Hargrave of London, and had issue, 
four sons, and a daughter, Martha, who was married to John 
Warsop, of Clapham in Surrey, gentleman, and by him had a 

His son and heir Sir Thomas Ercedekne, kat., sheriflf of CornwaU, 7 Edward I., 
was father of Odo or Eudo le Ercedekne, who, in 1289, gave the lands of West- 
lydeton, to the abbey of Tavistock, and, in 1312, held the lordship and castle of 
Trematon. Odo was living in 18 Edward I., as was also his son and heir, Thomas, 
who afterwards received the honour of knighthood, and was made governor of 
Tintagei Castle. He served frequently as knight of the shire, was summoned to 
parliament as a Baron, from 15 May, 14 Edward II. (1321) to 13 September, 18 
Edward II., and died at a patriarchal age in 1329. He married, first, Alice, 
daughter and eventual co-heir to Sir Thomas, Lord de la Roche ; and his second 
wife was Maud, daughter of the Lord Mulys (or Moels). By the latter he had no 
issue, but by the former he had a son and heir. Sir John Archedekne (aged about 25 
years at his father's decease), who was knight of the shire in 10 Edward III., and 
much engaged in that monarch's wars with France and Scotland. He had summons 
to parliament as a Baron in 16 Edward III. (1342), and married Cecily, daughter 
and heiress to Sir Jordan de Haccombe (by his wife Isabel, daughter and heiress 
of Sir Mauger St. Aubyn, knt., of Pidekeswell in Georgeham, co. Devon), and by 
her had nine sons. Ealph, the eldest, died, s. p.; Sir Warren A., knt., the second 
son, succeeded to Lanheme, &c., married Elizabeth, daughter and co-heir of Sir 
John Talbot of Richards Castle, co. Hereford, and had a daughter, Philippa, who 
married Sir Hugh Courtenay of Boconnoc, brother to Edward, Earl of Devon, and 
second son of Hugh, the tenth Earl; Odo, the third son {Esch, 9 Henry IV., 
no. 39) was father of John I'Erchdekne, who, by Maud his wife, had a son and 
heir John, the father of Philippa and of another John (Esch. 13 Edward IV.), 
who had two sons, viz., John, the father of Joan, his heir, who was married 
to ¦ Winter, of Cornwall {Each. I Henry VIII), and Thomas, whose 

daughter Mary married John Cole, as in the text. The other six sons were Richard, 
who married Joane, daughter of Richard Bosowr, and had Thomas, in whom the 
heir male of this family took an end ; John; Robert; Martyn; Reignald; and 

In Gilbert's CornwaU^ it is conjectured that some persona in humble circum- 
stances, who bore the same name, and resided in the parish of East Anthony, were 
descendants of this ancient stock. A branch of it was once settled in Ireland ; 
and built the picturesque castle of Monkstown, on the cove of Cork, and also that 
that of Bumakelly. Mr. D' Alton in his Ilhistraiiona of King Jainea* Irish Army 
List (1689), voL I., gives sundry particulars relating to its various members, their 
possessions, &c., as do also Mrs. S. C. Hall, and Lady Chatterton, in their respec- 
tive Tours in Ireland, and Gibson's History of the County of Cork, Mr. Andrew 
Arcedekne of Glevering Hall, Suffolk, is presumed to be also descended from this 
ancient stock. 

Although the family of De la Roche (above named) was of the first distinction nd 


son John Warsop, of Windsor,, esq., and two daughters, viz., Rose 
W., married to George Smith of Mitcham, in Surrey, gent., by 
whom she had William, and several daughters; and Elizabeth 
W. (died in 1G23), married to Sir Thomas Watson, of Halstead in 

power in Pembrokesbire, but few scanty notices of it exist. A branch of it, 
wbicb has been ennobled under the titles of Fermoy, &c., settled in Ireland in very 
remote times, and had grants of large tracts of land in that kingdom, among 
which was one in the county of Cork, known to this day as ** Roche's Country.'* 

Another of its early members had the Province of Rh6s or Eoos, in South Wales, 
committed to his charge by King Henry II., and was styled "Comes Littoris," an 
office that was hereditary and the extent of its jurisdiction was marked by the 
castles of Benton and Roch. The latter is said to have been built by Adam de 
Bupe, who founded the church of St. Mary Roch, and the priory of Hubberston- 
PiU, about the latter part of the twelfth century. He married Amy, the fair 
daughter of Fleming, a Norman knight; and it appears from the statutes of St. 
David's and the Charter of PiU, that he had a son Adam, and also one named 
David, whose son John was father of Thomas. He was, doubtless, the Sir Thomas 
de Rupe, above mentioned, who was summoned as a Baron, to the parliament held 
at London, 28 Edward I., and at Carlisle, 34th of the same king; and who also 
signed the celebrated letter to Pope Boniface VIII., in 29 Edward I. He held 
his barony as of the barony of Haverford. 

Authorities state that his daughters Margaret (wife to Francis Fleming), Joan (wife 
to Sir David de la Roche), Alice (wife to Sir Thomas, Lord Arcedekne), Phillis (wife 
to Sir Kuwras Karn), and Louisa (wife to William de Valence) became eventually 
co-heirs; but in Dugdale's Warwickshire there is a pedigree shewing that he also 
left a son, Sir William de la Roche, who was the father of Sir Robert de la Roche, 
knt., who had John, married to Isabella, daughter and heiress to Henry de Brom- 
wich, by whom he was father of Thomas, oh. infra oB/atem, 9 Richard II., whose 
daughters and co-heirs were married to Edmund, fifth Lord Ferrers of Chartley, 
and to George Longvile. However, as Meyrick's Visitation of Wales by Lewis 
Dwnn vol. I.) only assigns to William a daughter and heiress, Mariota; whose 
daughter and heiress, Margaret, was wife to Sir Roger Clarendon, the natural son 
of Edward, "The Black Prince;" and as this is incontestably proved by a "Roll of 
Serjeanty" of Michaelmas Term 12 Richard II., it is evident that the Sir Robert 
named by Dugdale could not have been a legitimate son of Sir William. 

Some of the same name owned large possessions in Cornwall, and Somerset in 
the 13th century. According to the Testa de NevUl, Gilbert de la Roche held half 
a knight's fee at Cotteford and la Schute, in the county of Southampton, and in 
9 Edward I., Gilbert de R., was of Bromham in Wilts. His descendant John de 
Roche, chevalier, died, 50 Edward III., seised of several manors within the lordship 
of Haverford, and also of the family property in Wilts. The latter passed to Iiis 
direct lineal descendant and representative, the late R. Nicholas, of Ryndnay and 
Aston-Keynes, formerly President of the Board of Excise, whose son and heir is 


Kent, knt, by whom she had a daughter and heiress, Elizabeth, 
married, first, to Sir "William Pope, son and heir to Sir William 
Pope, baronet. Earl of Downe, and Baron of Belturbet, in Ireland, 
(dignities now extinct) by his wife Anne, daughter of Sir Owen 
Hopton, knt., lieut. of the Tower of London, and relict of 
Henry, Lord Wentworth of Yorkshire. He (i.e. Pope) died, vitd 
patris, in 1624, leaving issue, Thomas,* John, William, Anne, and 

Major Griffin Nicholas, of the Hon. Corps of Gentlemen-at-Arms, and late of the 
fifth Fusiliers. 

Mr. Nicholas Adamson Koche of Paskeston, J.P., and D.L., for the county of 
of Pembroke, and William Francis Roche, R.N., son of the late George Roche of 
Butterhill, J. P. and D.L. for the same county, are traditionaUy said to be des- 
cended from Adam de Rupe. 

Segar gives as the quarterings of the heiress of Archdeacon, these foUowing, viz : — 
1. Archdeacon, Arg., three chevrons Sa. ; 2. de Roches, Sa., two lions passant Arg., 
armed Gu. ; 3. de la Roche, Sa., three roaches naiant Ppr. ; 4. Haccombe, Arg., 
three bends Sa. ; but it appears that she was also entitled to place after her paternal 
coat and before that of Roches, &c., these of (la) Clavell of Lomen, Or., three keys 
Gu., bringing in (16) Lomen (or de Lumine) Sa., a sun Or; also, (Ic) D Auney, Arg., 
a bend Sa., between two cottises Az.; and after Haccombe the quarterings brought in 
by that heiress, viz., those of (4a) 8t. Aubyn of Oeorgeham, Erm., on a cross Gu. four 
bezants, bringing in (4&) Pideheawell {or PichweW). It is also to be inferred from 
Lysons' Devon, that she was entitled to quarter the arms of BucJcland, of Btichland 
in the Moor, viz., Arg., a fesse Sa., fretty Or, between three lions rampant, Gu. 

* This Thomas, bom in 1622, succeeded at his grandfather's decease in July 
1631, as second Earl of Downe, &c.; took an active part on the royalist side during 
the civil war, and died at Oxford, 28 December, 1660. By his wife Lucy, daughter 
of John Dutton, of Sherborne, he left an only daughter and heiress, the Lady 
Elizabeth Pope, married, first, to Sir Francis Henry Lee, bart., of Quarendon, 
Berks, and Ditchley, Oxon, by whom she had Sir Edward Henry Lee, fifth 
baronet, who was raised to the peerage, in 1674, as Baron of SpeUesbury, Vis- 
count Quarendon, and Earl of Lichfield. He married Lady Charlotte Fitzroy, and 
had six sons and three daughters. His lordship, who refused to swear aUegiance tor 
the new government at the Revolution, died 14 July, 1716, and was succeeded by 
his eldest surviving son, Sir George Henry Lee, sixth baronet, and second Earl, 
who married Frances, daughter of Sir John Hales, of St. Stephens, Tunstall, and 
Woodchurch, in Kent, and had issue: 1, George Henry, who succeeded as 
third Earl, &c., but died, s. p. in 1775, when the honours passed to his uncle, the 
Hon. Robert Lee, M. P. for the city of Oxford, but expired on the decease of that 
nobleman, *. p. in 1776; 2, James, who died in 1742; 3, Charles Henry, who died 
in 1740 ; and five daughters, of whom the eldest, Charlotte, married, 26 Octo- 
ber, 1745 to Henry, eleventh Viscount DiUon, succeeded to the family estates 
on the death of her uncle Robert, fourth Earl ; Charles, the eldest son of this 


Elizabeth. She married, secondly, Sir Thomas Penestone of Comwell, 
in the county of Oxon, and of Leigh, in Sussex, knt., who was created 
a baronet, 25 November, 1612, and by him had two daughters ; the 
elder, Elizabeth, married to John Hastings, of Daylesford, in the 
county of Worcester (ancestor to Warren Hastings) ; the younger, 

, to Sir James Astrey, knt, master in Chancery ; and two sons, 

John, who died unmarried in 1632, and an elder. Sir Thomas P., 
who succeeded as second baronet, about 1644, and had issue. Sir 
Thomas, and Sir Eairmeadow, successively, third and fourth 
baronets, and Charles, who all died s. p. 

11 The sons of the said Thomas Cole of London, who died April 
1571, and was buried in Allhallows Church, London, were, 

18 I. William Cole of London, who died 16 February, 1600 (43

and of Westminster, knight and baronet, and had , an 

only daughter, who died in childhood. A handsome monu-

Lady Lichfield afterwards became the third wife of Robert Bertie, third Earl of 
Lindsay, by whom she had one son, Charles, and a daughter, Elizabeth, who both 
died unmarried. 

• In Burke^s Peerage and Baronetage, is this account : "Sir William "W., married 
a lady of the royal household, of whom the following circumstance is related : — 
* King Charles 1., at the beginning of his troubles, delivered to Lady Wheler, a 
casket which she was to take care of, and to return it to his majesty on the delivery

13 Sir William Cole, only son of Emanuel, early in the reign 
of James I. fixed his residence in the county of Fermanagh: 10 
September, 1607, he was made Captain of the long boats and 
barges at Ballyshannon and Lough Earne by patent, pursuant to 
privy signet 15 May preceding, with the fee of 3s. 4d. a day 
for himself, and 8d. a piece for 10 men. And becoming an 
undertaker in the N'orthem Plantation, he had an assignment 
16 November, 1611, of the small proportion of Dromskeagh, con- 
taining 1000 acres of the escheated lands in the county of Fermanagh, 
at the crown rent of £S, English ; to which 28 May, 1612, were 
added 320 escheated acres in the said county, at the rent of 20s., 
Irish ; 80 acres whereof were assigned for the town of Enniskillen, 
and for the burgesses close and common for the said town, with an 
exception of the castle, and the other two-third parts of the island 
of Enniskillen, together with covenants for planting, building and 
inhabiting the said town, according to a plan set down by the Lord 
Deputy for Sir Ealph Bingley and Captain Basil Brooke, with a 
grant of a market and a fair, the clerkship of the market, and keep- 
ing of a toll booth within the said town, and a prohibition that none 
should sell by retail within three miles of the town, but such as 
Captain Cole should plant there or be resident ; for performance of 
which covenants he entered into bonds with the Crown, and, having 
fulfilled his engagements, the town of Enniskillen was incorporated 
by a charter, consisting of a provost, and twelve burgesses, he 
himself being the first provost.* In 1614 he was Provost Marshal 

? By patent, dated 21 September, 1623, pursuant to Privy Seals, dated at West- 
minster, 29 October, 1620, and 18 July 1622, and by the consent of Sir Thomas 
Button, one of the gentlemen of the Kling's Privy chamber, he received, a grant to 
him, his heirs and assigns, of the aforesaid excepted castle, fort and bawne of Ennis- 
killen, and two third parts of the Island of Enniskillen, together with two small 
islands called Enniskillen Islands, aU lying within Lough Earne, at the yearly 
rent of 58. (Irish). And in virtue of the Commission, dated 13 August, 1628, for 
granting anew of all lately escheated lands in the province of Ulster, also in 
recompense of his good services, and for the fine of £32 12^. (English), King Charles, 
6 May, 1629, confirmed to him and his heirs the whole small proportion of Droms- 
keagh, with all the hereditaments thereof, containing 1,000 acres by survey, in the 
baronies of Magheriboy and Clenawly, in the coimty of Fermanagh, with free liberty 
of fishing in Lough Earne, and 120 acres of concealed lands in the former barony, 
to hold by fealty only, and the yearly rent of £10 ISa. 4d. (English) for Dromskeagh, 
and £1 6«. 8d for the other; the whole being created into the manor of Portdorie 


for Ballyshannon ;* in 1617 he was knighted by the Lord De- 
puty St. John, and 15 June, 1618, received the grant of a pension 
of 6s., English, by the day, on the surrender thereof by Captain 
Eoger Atkinson ; and 3 December following, he and his lady had a 
license to sell and retail wine, and to make and sell Aqua-vitae, in 

In the Parliament of 1639 he represented the county of Fermanagh, 
and being a person of great prudence and conduct, enjoyed a con- 
siderable share of esteem from his country in general, and the 
government in particular; to whom he gave the first notice of what 
passed in the county among the abettors of the rebellion of 1641 : 
**ror Bryan Macguire (whom he afterwards preserved from the rage 
of the rebels, who were incensed against him for not taking the oath 
of confederacy with them) about 10 October, understanding by 
Farrell oge Mac Award, a friar, that there was a general purpose 
and resolution among the popish inhabitants of Ireland, to take up 
arms within a fortnight ; and then to seize on all the strongholds, 
which they purposed to retain until they should procure liberty of 
conscience, and free exercise of the Komish religion ; he gave then the 
more credit to that report, in regard that he had observed the unusual 
and frequent meetings between the Lord Maguire, Sir Phelim Eoe 
O'Neil, Tirlagh oge Mac Hugh oge O'Hosie, and others of the chief of 
their country, and their followers; and imparted this discovery to Sir 
William Cole, who, the very next day (1 1 October) sent a letter to 
the Lords Justices by an express from Enniskillen, acquainting 
them with ' the unusual resort of people to Sir Phelim O'Neil's 
house ; the frequent private journeys of Lord Maguire thither, to 

[with power to create tenures] with an assignment of 400 acres for a demesne, 300 acres 
for a park, with free-warren and chase, and other privileges of courts, &c., subject 
to the conditions of plantation, on which he had built in the reign of Ring James I. 
a good stone castle, three stories high, strongly wrought within a bawne of lime 
and stone, 68 feet square, and 13 feet high, with 4 flankers, [ " of lyme and stone, 
30 feet high, and 10 feet wide."] And by virtue of the commission for remedy of 
defective titles, he had a further confirmation, 18 July, 1638, for the fine of £73 
183. 9d. (English) and the rent of £53 16«. %d. (English) of aU his estate in the county 
of Fermanagh, with the creation thereof into the manors of Cormegradie and Portdo- 
rie, a demesne of 400 acres in each, liberty to impark 600 acres more, and usual 
privileges. — (Lodge).

Dublin, and other places, his many dispatches in great hurry to 
divers persons to meet at his seat, pretending to raise men for the 
king of Spain's service ; to nominate captains under him to do the 
like, and pitching upon such as were men of broken fortunes, and 
the likeliest to be concerned in any mischief that was intended, of 
which the suspicions were very strong, and gave uneasiness to men 
of honest inclinations/" 

Upon the receipt of this intelligence the Lords Justices and Council 
wrote to Sir William requesting him to be very diligent and in- 
dustrious to find out what should be the occasion of those meetings 
and specially to advertise them thereof, or of any other particular, 
that he conceived might tend to the public service of the State which 
was all that could reasonably have been done by the State in those 
circumstances. Sir William's observations being only conjectural. 
But, being on his guard, and making daily remarks on what occurred 
in his part of the country, he received a more particular informa- 
tion, by John Cormack and Flaherty Mac Hugh, from Brian Mac 
Cohonaught Maguire, of the intended insurrection and seizing 
of the castle of Dublin; the murdering the Lords Justices, 
and the protestants of Ireland ; and the seizing all the forts in 
the kingdom. With this news he dispatched on the 21st another 
express to the Lords Justices, which (whether the letters were 
intercepted, or otherwise miscarried) came not to their hands ; 
but the intelligence next day, late in the evening, was confirmed 
by Owen O'Conolly, servant to Sir John Clotworthy, who com- 
municated the conspiracy to the Lord Justice Parsons, out of 
a sense of his duty and loyalty to the king, and an effect of that 
(Protestant) religion he was trained up in. Of which his rela- 
tion Sir John Temple, Dr. Borlace, and other writers give account. 

On the breaking out of the rebellion. Sir William Cole, received 
a commission under the Privy Signet, dated by the King at Edin- 
burgh, 16 November, to be Colonel of 500 foot for suppressing the 
Eebels; upon which he soon raised most of the forces of Fermanagh; 
was Governor of the Garrison of Enniskillen, and by his prudent 
care preserved the country, in a great measure, from the desolation 
which threatened it. He did not confine his services to that part of 
the country only, but rendered himself remarkable to the parliament 


(who had undertaken to prosecute the war) by his success in other 
parts of the kingdom. And in January, 1643, when his regiment 
was in the utmost necessity for bread, and totally destitute of their 
pay, Sir William, in his great zeal for His Majesty's service, and 
preservation of the regiment, bought from Eobert Thornton, esquire, 
200 barrels of rye, at the rate of 30s. the barrel, for their mainte- 
nance ; but, notwithstanding his heavy private disbursements in this 
and other matters for the service of the State, he had long to await 
the repayment of his advances, as may be seen by referring to the 
Jwimals of the Houses of Lords and Commons, 

Although Sir William was at this time advanced in years, he 
nevertheless (as has been stated) materially aided in the suppres- 
sion of the rebellion ; yet the signal services that he then, and on 
other occasions, rendered to his sovereign and his fellow citizens 
did not secure him from many representations by and much detrac- 
tion from one less successful than himself, to whom he was the 
object of envy ; but the pamphlet,* which he published in refuta- 
tion of those spiteful attacks, shows that he was as well able to use 
his pen as his sword. It is quaintly remarked in Moryson's Hist, 
of Ireland (8vo, DubUn, 1735) that '^This Sir William Cole, is a 
Justice of the Peace and Quorum in the county of Fermanagh, and 
hath been thrice Sheriff of his county."-}- He married, first, Susanna, 
daughter and heiress to John Croft, of the county of Lancaster, esq., 
and relict of Stephen Segar, esq.. Lieutenant of the Castle of Dublin, 
and had issue : Mary, married to the Eeverend Master John Bar- 
clay (or Berkeley) ; and Margaret, married to Sir James Montgomery,!

to the Committee of both Kingdoms unto a charge given in by Sir F. Hamilton, Knt., 
to the said Committee against the said Sir William Cole, with the charge or infor- 
mation prefixed, 4to, London, March 31st, 1645. '* 

+ Sir William, for his services in Ireland, had a grant to his paternal coat 
armour of this augmentation: — "In dexter canton, per pale Gu. and Az., a harp of 
Ireland, Or, stringed Arg." ; and to the crest, — " a shield Or, in the sinister paw."

JThis worthy had the epithet of "The Courteous Knight" from the British, and 
the same from the Irish, with the addition of *^ Noble.** Dame Margaret, who was 


second son to Sir Hugh Montgomery, first Viscount Montgomery. He 
married, secondly, Catherine, eldest daughter of Sir Lawrence 
Parsons, of Birr, in King's County, second Baron of the Exchequer 
(ancestor of the Earl of Eosse) and dying in October, 1653, was 
buried in St. Michan's Church, and left two sons, viz: — 

14 L Michael, his heir, ancestor of the Earls of Enniskillen, and 

IL Sir John Cole, bart., father of Sir Arthur, created Lord Kane- 
lagh ; which Sir John was seated at Newland, in the county 
of Dublin. " During the rebellion he was very active under his 
father, particularly in the relief of Enniskillen ; which having 
been besieged nine weeks by 1,500 men under Philip Mac Hugh 
O'Eeily, they were surprised in a sally by Walter Johnson, an 
officer under Sir William, who, being seconded by Sir John with 
his foot company and some volunteers, the siege was raised, 
and Sir John had the pursuit of the eneiny for seven miles, 
as far as Maguire's bridge.'* 

After the reduction of the kingdom by the parliament, he was 
appointed with others, 21 November, 1653, commissioners for the 
precinct of Belturbet, to consider how the titles of the Irish and 
others to an estate in Ireland, and also their delinquency accord- 
ing to their respective qualifications might be put into the most 
speedy and exact way of adjudication, so as might be with justice, 
and least prejudice to the public interest. On 27 September, 
following, he had the pay of ^18 4s. by the month, allowed him 
as Governor of Enniskillen, and being very instrumental in pro- 
moting the restoration of king Charles IL, his majesty, by privy 
seal, dated at Whitehall, 4 August, and by patent dated 23 
January, 1660, created him a Baronet, in consideration of his 
very many good services performed to his majesty; and in 
December following, ordered him a commission to be Colonel of 
a regiment of foot, being well versed in military affairs, to which 
he was appointed 22 March following ; having on the 19th been 
constituted one of the commissioners for the settlement of the

in his service, directed a patent to be passed to him of several tenements and parcels 
of ground in and about the town of Navan, with sundry others in the co. of Meath,
