Birth and Early Life

John Cogswell was born before his baptism date of 2 April 1592[1] in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England. He was the son of Edward Cogswell and Alice maiden name unknown. It is known that his grandfather, Robert Cogswell (d. 1581), was a manufacturer of woolen cloth.[2]

Baptism: 2 April 1592 in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England (11 is an erroneous reading of the register which says John Cogswell fillies Edward[ard]i Cogeswell baptized: fit ijth Aprilis 1592. ij should be read as 2 and not as 11.) Siblings

All children born in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England. Margaret Cogswell born c. 1580. She married Thomas Merchante in 1599. Elizabeth Cogswell, 1st of this name in this family, born January 1581.

John married Elizabeth Thompson (1594-1676) daughter of Rev. William Thompson, the Vicar of Westbury Parish, Wiltshire for 20 years (1603-1623) and Phyllis Unknown on 10 September 1615, according to the parish records.[3][4]His parents died soon after John married Elizabeth and he inherited: "The Mylls called Ripond, situate within the Parish of Frome Selwood". [5] His occupation was manufacturing woolen fabric, broadcloths and kerseymeres. He had a very good reputation for a fine product. He is sometimes called a London merchant but that is because he probably had a commission house there, as it would have been the largest market for his product.

The Public Record Office in London has a conveyance deed for the sale of his Westbury Leigh property in 1635 to Anthony Selfe and Henry Allyn.[6]

John and Elizabeth and 8 of their living children, William, John, Jr., Edward, and 5 daughters (Elizabeth, Mary, Hannah, Esther, Abigail; leaving behind the one daughter, who is now known as Phyllis) sailed on the Angel Gabriel which was commanded by Capt. Andrews. It was the ship built for Sir Walter Raleigh and he probably made his last voyage on her to Guiana, South America in 1618 before he was executed. They boarded the ship on 23 May 1635, sailed on 4 June because it was becalmed. They landed finally on 15 August 1635[7][8] under the worst possible circumstances as a terrible storm wrecked the ship. On the same day, the "James" sailed with more emigrants fleeing religious intolerance. Among those passengers was the Rev. Richard Mather. The passengers on the Angel Gabriel, including John, lost a lot of valuable property and some lost their lives.[9] After they made it ashore at a place called Pemaquid in Maine, John left his family there with the tent he had brought along and went to Boston, Massachusetts. He arranged to have his wife, three sons and five daughters transported on about the last of August to Ipswich, Massachusetts. He was by 1636 granted 300 acres of land at Chebacco, part of Ipswich that was constituted on 5 May 1679, as Chebacco Parish. He also was granted a parcel of 8 acres to build a house and 5 more acres by the river. He built a log house in 1636 and lived in Chebacco for the rest of his life. He is said to have been the third original settler in those parts. He was always addressed as "Mr." which was a mark of distinction in that time.

Later Life

John was made freeman on 3 March 1636 by an act of the Court, which meant that he could hold public office and vote, amongst other things. As soon as he was able, he built a frame house. Many of their original possessions, which were salvaged from the shipwreck, are still treasured by family members. One of those is an embroidered coat of arms. It was granted to Lord Humphrey Cogswell of England in 1447. On 25 September 1649, he was part of the Essex Grand Jury. As he and his wife grew older, they deeded land to their children, who settled very near and all around them, on farms of their own. On 2 January 1652, they deeded to their son-in-law Cornelius Waldo 49 acres and the dwelling house at Chebacco Falls. On 16 April 1657, they confirmed a grant to sons John and William which was the 300 acres called "Westbury Lee".

Death and Burial

He died on November 29, 1669, in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts[10], at the age of 77. He died intestate and the administration of his estate was granted to his wife Elizabeth on 29 March 1670.[11] He was honored with a five mile long funeral procession and buried in the Old North Graveyard, also known as Highland, Cowles-Highland, Cowles Memorial, Highland-Cowles, Old Burying Hill, in Ipswich, Massachusetts. His wife is there beside him, but the graves are now unmarked. Find A Grave: Memorial #21536932 created by Cynthia on 13 September 2007.

GENEALOGY: Cogswell

John(3) Cogswell was the immigrant ancestor in this Cogswell line. He was born in 1592 in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England. He was baptized on April 7, 1592. He died on Nov. 29, 1669 at Ipswich, Mass. He is buried in Old North Graveyard, Ipswich, Mass. On Sept. 10, 1615 in Westbury Leigh, Wilts, John married Elizabeth THOMPSON. She was born circa 1594 in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England. She died on June 2, 1676 at Ipswich, Mass. She is also buried in Old North Graveyard, Ipswich, Mass.

At age 23, he succeeded to his fathers' business and settled down in the old homestead. His parents died soon after his marriage, and he received his inheritance, "The Mylls called Ripond, situate within the Parish of Frome Selwood," together with the home place and certain personal property. Like his father, he was a manufacturer of wollen fabrics, largely broadcloths and kerseymeres. The superior quality of these manufacturers gave his "mylls" a favorable reputation, which appears to have been retained to the present day. There are factories occupying much the same locations and still owned by the Cogswells, which continue to put on the market wollen cloths that in Vienna and elsewhere have commanded the first premium in the world exhibitions of our times (1880s?).

John Cogswell doubtless found, in London, a market for his manufactures. He may have had a commission house in that city, which would account for his being called, as he sometimes has been, a London merchant.

Mrs. Cogswells' mother was Phillis--- and her father was the Rev. William Thompson, vicar of Westbury from 1603 to his death in 1623. About twenty years after their marriage, with a family of nine children about them, and having the accumulations of a prosperous business, Mr. and Mrs. Cogswell determined to emigrate to America. The particular reasons which led them to leave England may have been much the same that influenced others in their times. It appears that early in 1635, Mr. Cogswell made sale of his "mylls" and other real estate, and soon after, with his wife, eight children, and all their personal effects, embarked at Bristol, May 23, 1635, for New England. Their passage was long and disastrous. Their arrival in America was after a most unexpected fashion. Having reached the shores of New England, they were landed unceremoniously at a place called Pemaquid, in Maine, being washed ashore from the broken decks of their ship "Angel Gabriel " which went to pieces in the frightful gale of August 15, 1635, when such a "sudden dismal storm of wind and rain came as had never been known before by white man or Indian." Traces of this storm remained for years.

John Cogswell and his wife Elizabeth settled at Ipswich, and had lands granted him there as appears from the records; under the date of 1635, is this entry:

"Granted to Mr. John Cogswell three hundred acres of land at the further Chebacco, Having the river on the southeast, the land of Will White on ye Northwest & a Creek Coming out of the river towards Will Whites farme on the Northeast. Bounded also on the west with a creek & a little brooke. Also there was granted to him a percell of ground containing eight acres, upon part whereof the said John Coggswell hath Built an house, it being in ye corner lott in Bridge Streete and has goodman Bradstreet houselott on ye s.e. The was also granted to him six acres of Ground late mr. John Spencers. Butting upon the river on the southeast having a lott of Edmund Gardners' on the Northeast & a lott of Edmund Saywords on the Southwest wch six acres of ground teh sd John Coggswell hath sold to John Perkins teh younger his heirs and assigns."

The fact that he was designated "Mr." at that date, and the considerable amount of land granted him indicate that he was a man of good social standing in society. The records of about that date further show that Cornelius Waldo was Mr. Coggswell's farmer.

The Cogswells were also involved in an attempt to prevent the execution of Goodwife Proctor in the Salem witch trials. According to Ipswich In The Massachusetts Bay Colony, 290-291, by Thomas Franklin Waters, The Ipswich Historical Society, 1905: "Five members of the Cogswell family were among the twenty prominent people who signed the petition drawn up by the Rev. John Wise on behalf of Goodwife Proctor, who stood accused of witchcraft. Mary Warren alleged that she had been threatened and abused by Goodwife proctor, and that she had seen apparitions of people who had long since been murdered by the wife of John Proctor. This evidence prevailed and the good woman was sentenced to death."

Mrs. Cogswell survived her husband but a few years. She was a woman of sterling qualities and dearly loved by all who knew her. Side by side in the old churchyard in Ipswich have slept for more than three hundred years, the mortal remains of this godly pair, whose childhood was passed near the banks of the river Avon; who leaving behind the tender associations of the Old World, came with their children to aid in rearing on these shores a pure Christian state. They did greater work than they knew, died in the faith of the Gospel, and while their graves are unmarked by monument of stone, their souls are safe in heaven, their memory blessed, and their names honored by a posterity in numbers second only to that of Abraham.

John and Elizabeth Cogswell had the following children:-

daughter(4); she married, lived in London, and was the only child of John Cogswell who did not come to America Mary(4); b. circa 1617 in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England; d. in Boston Mass.

The Cogswells settled at Ipswitch, now Essex, where he was admitted as a freeman on March 3, 1636. He was a farmer, but maintained manufacturing interests in England, principally woolen mills in Newbury. John Cogswell and his wife Elizabeth settled at Ipswich, and had lands granted him there as appears from the records; under the date of 1635, is this entry: "Granted to Mr. John Cogswell three hundred acres of land at the further Chebacco, Having the river on the southeast, the land of Will White on ye Northwest & a Creek Coming out of the river towards Will Whites farm on the Northeast.

He came to America on the "Angel Gabriel",in 1635 to Pemaquid, Maine. The Puritan minister, Richard Mather, described the end of the Angel Gabriel in his diary," on Sunday morning about break of day, the Lord sent forth a most terrible storm of rain and easterly winds--- the Angel Gabriel, being then at the anchor at Pemaquid, was burst in pieces and cast away in this storm, and most of the cattle and other goods, with one seaman and three or four passengers did perish therein, besides two passengers that died by the way." ( August 15, 1635).

John Cogswell had inherited a woolen manufacturing business from his father and had a good estate in England which he sold in 1635 before emigrating. The goods on board ship worth about 5000 pounds, totally lost.
