________________________________

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.
