• Background Information. 454
Henry Cogan, father, and grandfather of emigrants from England to America, may have been son to Henry Cogan who was married in Chedzoy, 1 Jul 1565 to Elizabeth Carye. His own baptism has not been found. He married at the Church of St. Mary Magdalena, Taunton, Somerset, England, 30 Nov 1590 to Joane Boridge. Henry Cogan was buried at the same church 1 Dec 1612.

Henry's will describes him as a clothier, of Tauton, and is dated 27 Nov. 1612, probated 29 June 1613. He left £10 to each of his six daugthers (Johane, Judith, Mary, Elizabeth, Anne and Frances) to be paid at their respective marriages, and if any marry without consent of their mother, they are to lose their share for five years. Of the sons, only John is mentioned, and he is to have merely three pairs of loambes (gloves) furnished with fleece "and such like things as belong unto them," and this only on the day of his marriage. Since the marriage is still in the future (26 Jun 1615), there can be no question of a previous marriage settlement. His wife Johane is named executrix.
