      profile changed on 18 Aug 2012 from:
      Sir William James Cole 1/15/1520 Enniskillen, County Sligo, Connacht, Ireland

      As it does not seem possible for a child of these parents to have been born in 1520. The more "traditional" (LDS) birth date of About 1541 in London has been reverted to.

      Internet discussion below.

      Was Governor of Enniskillen...from book, "Recollections of Olden Times" about Swansea, Bristol, RI

      COLE Henry Cole, of Britain, surnamed by some the "Hawksfaced," began to reign over that portion of the territory known as Essex in the present day, and also Hertfordshire, in the year 238, and added to his dominion shortly afterward the principality of North Essex, by his marriage to Seradwin, its heiress, a princess of the Eadda, whence in still later times came the pendragon kings of Uther's royal race, among whom was King Arthur of the Round Table. The Coles owned land in Essex, Wiltshire, Devonshire and Derbyshire under Edward the Conqueror. He was a great lover of flowers and plants, and married the daughter of de Lobel, from whom the plant Lobelia is named, the celebrated botanist and physician of James I. The Cole family owned lands on the ridge of hills called Highgate, near the Kingston line. (History of Plymouth). [Much of this later history is in dispute, and the marriage to Mary L'Obel has been largely disproven.]

      Another discussion from the Cole Genealogy forum:

      "Try, Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ireland---the Cole's founded and still own most of the land in this town today--I have found references to the Cole's as a far back as 600 in Ireland. Family word says they originated there. They were in England for a while and also in Wales."

      "And again, "family word" this many years down the pike is extremely unreliable. Besides, history tells us that the family was English and sent to Ireland with orders to establish a barony and "control the Irish." Which they did, but not admirably so."

      "William Cole founded Eniskillen Ireland and successfully fought the English attack in defense of the city. So far all of my family words and bible records are accurate. Just have not gone that far back.

      The story is that they pledged allegiance to England to save their land and some went to England and Wales for about 200 years. They then were sent back to Ireland to their lands, but all did not defend the English---many took the side of the Irish---Colbhain--I think the spelling is incorrect here--is the name that the family is said to descend from. So, basically the period before the records start in England they were indeed Irish."

      "It is doubtful that James was of this family. But while it is still possible, one must consider that James was never mentioned as a member of the peerage. (Although he apparently had some wealth.)"

      I have looked into those very locations, and although there is considerable Cole history there, I have not been able to confirm that James Cole born about

      1600 and located in Barnstaple, Devon, England in the early 1620's has any link to them. That is the crucial piece that is missing.

      "If someone can DOCUMENT James' father, then I may be able to pursue the Irish lineage...I have heard much in the way of speculation, but so far no one is willing/able to show me proof of his parentage..."

      "To Timothy, My family line is from William Cole. His son James was born in 1600 Barnstaple, Devonshire, England.As to other information you said that he was not the Earl of Enniskillen. Sorry but you are wrong on this. He was the Earl of Enniskillen, Sligo, Ireland. He was also the baron of Grinstead. He also built the florance court house . This is my direct line. And I do have confirmation. And yes [there] were Coles in Ireland. Their were also located in Kildare

      area. If you want some more information don't hesitate to email me at nikolbravewolf@aol.com."

      "Nikol, I would like some more information about James Cole of your line. From what little I know of England and Ireland during that period of time, I suspect you are correct. The English kings were trying to rid Ireland of all native peoples in order to give their land to the king's favorites (meaning those to whom he owed something in return for favors rendered to him such as fighting his battles).

      And I have read a little about The Great Migration (I have not seen a copy) and I have read on this forum I think it was about the seemingly favored position of James Cole in Plymouth. For example if he were one of the religous people in the community, why would he have been allowed to serve ale at his establishment? He seems to have been some kind of representative of the merchant class that financed the people to Plymouth colony. Yes, I hope you can give us more information from your records. Thanks. Wanda Cole"

      Thomas Cole
      Birth: 1494 Devon, England
      Death: Apr., 1571 Greater London, England
      Thomas Cole was born at "The Slade". the ancestral home of a long line of Coles. He was the second son of John Cole and Mary Archdeacon, therefore, according to the law of progeniture, he was not to inherit his father's estates. He went to London and became a wealthy grocer living in the Parish of All Hallows on Honey Lane. Honey Lane was just off Cheapside in London, one of the main thoroughfares with markets held in the middle of the road. The great processions passed through Cheapside and Monarchs rode through from the Tower to be crowned at Westminster. The inhabitants of Honey Lane had a front-row seat to English history.
      He married Elizabeth Hargrave, daughter of Thomas Hargrave, "citizen and haberdasher" of London. It is very likely that he served an apprenticeship under Thomas Hargrave before opening his own "grocer" which inventoried a variety of items other than just food.
      His children were: William James b. May 1540, who married Annes Colles (Cole) daughter of Michael Colles (Cole); Elizabeth died young, Martha b. Aug 1541. who married John Warsop of Clapham in Surrey; Thomas b. Dec 1543,who became a priest and died unmarried; Emanuel b. 1545 and married Margaret Ingram, daughter of Hugh Ingram of London. (Their son, William Cole, settled in Ireland and became immediate ancestor of distinguished descendants in Ireland, the Earls of Enniskillen;) John b. Jun 1545; Solomon b. Jan 1547. d.Nov 1629 at Liss in Hampshire and married Mary Dering, heiress of Thomas Dering; ; Barnabus b. Jul 1551; Matthew b. Dec 1552; John b. Oct 1554.
      Burial: All Hallows by the Tower Church, London, City of London, Greater London, England

      The Genealogy of the Family of Cole, of the County of Devon: Of the County of Devon, and of ... by JAMES. EDWIN-COLE
      1 WILLIAM COLE, of Hutenesleigh (now called Hittisleigh) in the county of Devon, living in the year 1243, whose son and heir
      2 ROGER COLE,* had "his dwelling at Coleton," in Chumleigh, and also held, in 27 Henry III., Hantesford, in that parish.† In 25th of Edward I. he was "returned from the county of Cornwall as holding lands or rents to the amount of £20 yearly value and upwards, either in Capite or otherwise, and as such summoned under the general writ to muster at London, on Sunday next after the Octaves of St. John the Baptist (7 July, 1297), to perform Military Service in person with horses and arms, &c., in parts beyond the Seas ;" ‡ and also again summoned with his son William§ to muster at Berwick-on-Tweed, on the nativity of St. John the Baptist, to perform service against the Scots in 1301. He was father of
      3 ROGER (of whom immediately), and of the above-named William, who probably perished in this expedition, as there is no further trace of him ; and perhaps his early death may account for the omission of his name in the family pedigree drawn up, in July 1630, by Sir William Segar, Garter, King-at-Arms.
      3 ROGER was heir to his father Roger, and lived in the reign of Edward II. ; his son and heir was
      4 JOHN COLE, of the counties of Devon and Cornwall, who, in 1324, was described as "John Cole de Tamer, Man-at-Arms, || and
      returned by the Sheriff of the county of Devon, pursuant to Writ tested at Westminster, 9 May, as summoned by proclamation to attend the Great Council at Westminster, on Wednesday after Ascension Day, 30 May, 17 Edward II." In the 9th of Edward III (1335) he had free warren in Tamer, Lydeston, Hokesbere, and Hutenesleigh in the county of Devon, and in Rispernatt ;* and it appears by a Fine of 15 Edward III. (1341) that he was possessed of the manors of Respnel in the county of Cornwall, Launceston, and Stokley, and of the manor of Uptamer, Nytheway, and Hutenesleigh, the third part of the manor of Winston, and divers other lands in the county of Devon. He left a son and heir,
      5 SIR JOHN COLE, knight, of Nythway, in the parish of Brixham, who, on 25th July, 4 Richard II. (1380) was "knighted (before the castle of Ardres) in Fraunce, by the Erl of Buckingham Thomas of Woodstock, Lord Deputy there for the King,"† and who married Anne, daughter and heiress to Sir Nicholas Bodrugan,‡ knt., by whom he had issue,

He married Agnes, daughter of Sir —— Fitzwarine, knt., and had issue four sons, viz : —
      I. Sir Adam Cole, knt., his heir, who succeeded at Uptamer and Nythway, and marrying Elizabeth,† daughter of Sir Richard Weston, knt, had a son John, the father of John, who left issue only two daughters, his co-heirs, viz. : — Elizabeth, married to Sir John Huddy, of Stowell, co.
