If William Cogan, my cousin, do discharge my said executrix of all such bonds, bills, and obligations, as I do stand bound with and for him unto M. John Barcroft and Margaret Webb widow then I do give and devise unto him my said Cousin William, the sum of fifty pounds. I desire my good friends M. John Hody Gentleman and my son in law, M.

The children of Philbert Cogan and Ann Marshall were as follows:

  1. Mary Cogan (married Roger Ludlow) born 1604
  2. Elizabeth Cogan (married John Endecott) born in 1607
  3. Thomas Cogan born in 1610
  4. Martha Cogan (married Peter Holway) born in 1613
  5. Margaret born in 1615
  6. Ann Cogan (married Mr. Robinson) born in 1617
  7. Susan born in 1620

Ted Sanford:

"We know that Margaret (26) and Susan (21) at the time of their father's death, were still unmarried which is unusual given the short life spans of the time. The fact that Margaret got the largest amount of the inheritance at 300 pounds may suggest that she had some illness or other condition that would preclude her getting married, and that provision was made for Susan should her brother die without issue although she was still marriageable in 1641."
