  • About the beginning of the second decade of the existence of the Plymouth colony, there came from England three young men, brothers, named John, Job and Daniel Cole.

  • John G. Hunt wrote in an article published in The American Genealogist, Vol. 42: ORIGIN OF THREE EARLY PLYMOUTH FAMILIES: COLE, COLLIER , AND CLARKE " . . . proved by the will of Zaccheus Cole of St. Olave, Southwark (Surrey England), citizen and grocer of London, dated 16 Nov 1630 . . . In this will the testator named his mother, FRANCES, his brothers Nathaniel, John, and DANIEL COLE, and appointed his brother, Job Cole, executor. In New England the will of John Cole, dated about 1637, refers to his brothers Job Cole and Daniel Cole; to sister Rebecca and to Eliza Collyer and left legacies to each of Master Collier's men." This is the evidence that the mother of Daniel Cole is Frances (unknown) and that his father whose name remains unknown had died prior to the date of the will.
  • It was Monday Dec. 20,1694 when Daniel die. Daniel was 80 years old when he pass away. Three brother Job, John and Daniel Cole came to Plymouth Mass in 1633 on the ship " Mary and James" with 190 passengers. William Collier, merchant in London came with the Cole brothers, Job Cole worked for William Collier, James Cole of the hill could also be related to the Cole brothers. Some books say he was a brother but he could be a cousin because he is not mentioned in Zaccheus's will. James Cole also arrived at Plymouth from Saco, Maine the same year that the Cole brothers arrived in Plymouth, Job and Daniel moved to Eastham,Mass. Daniel Cole was 19 years old in 1633. Daniel married Ruth Chester and removed to Yarmouth in 1637. But joined his brother Job at Eastham Mass 1643. He was a deputy 10 times and a member of the Yarmouth Militia, selectman,town clerk in Eastham Mass. He was a tailor and arrived in N.E. 19 years old.
