________________________________

  • Elder John Stronge is the son of John (Richard) Stronge and Eleanor Deane.
    • John (Richard) Stronge died before the birth of his youngest child in 1613. This is well documented in his will.
  • After John (Richard) Stronge's death,
    • his wife, Eleanor Deane, daughter of a tanner,
      • married William Cogan (a tanner by trade) before the birth of John (Richard) Stronge's offspring by Eleanor in 1613.
      • Following a west country tradition, the daughter is christened "Eleanor," after her mother.
      • Though she is a "Stronge" by blood, William Cogan refers to her as "my daughter," and raises her as such with the name Eleanor Cogan.
  • Young (Elder) John Stronge learns the tanning trade from William Cogan and Eleanor Deane's father, Walter Deane.
  • Sarah Stronge, the future wife of Lt. William Clarke, was born in 1613 to Thomas Stronge, the brother of Elder John Stronge's father.
    • This makes Sarah Stronge the cousin of Elder John Stronge.
