      Bet. 11 Jan 1556-10 Jan 1557 in Oswestry Mersete St. Asaph Welsh, Selattyn, Shropshire, England.

      From Genealogy of Cole Family:

      The name of this ancient and noble family, which gave five knights of the shire to Cornwall, has been in different ages spelt in various ways; but l'Arcedekne, and Erchdeken seem to have been the most usual. The family was originally of Devon, but afterwards became by inheritance possessed of "two noble seats in Cornwall; of which the castle of Ruan-Lanihorne, then called Shepestall, was perhaps the most superb." In later times, however, the manor of East Anthony, which was obtained by marriage with the heiress of D'Auney, became the chief residence of this house.
      In the reign of Henry III. Sir Michael Erchdekne owned the manor of Showbrooke in Devon, which, it is supposed, was acquired through a marriage with the heiress of the Clavells, who had been lord thereof from the time of the Norman Conqueror.

      His son and heir Sir Thomas Ercedekne, knight., sheriff of Cornwall, 7 Edward I., was father of Odo or Endo le Ercedekne, who, in 1289, gave the lands of Westlydeton, to the abbey of Tavistock, and, in 1312, held the lordship and castle of Trematon. Odo was living in 18 Edward I., as was also his son and heir, Thomas, who afterwards received the honour of knighthood, and was made governor of Tintagel Castle. He served frequently as knight of the shire, was summoned to parliament as a Baron, from 15 May, 14 Edward II. (1321) to 13 September, 18 Edward II., and died at a patriarchal age in 1329. He married, first, Alice, daughter and eventual co-heir to Sir Thomas, Lord de la Roche; and his second wife was Maud, daughter of the Lord Mulys (or Moels). By the latter he had no issue, but by the former he had a son and heir, Sir John Archedekne (aged about 25 years at his father's decease), who was knight of the shire in IO Edward III., and much engaged in that monarch's wars with France and Scotland. He had summons to 'parliament as a Baron in 16 Edward III. (1342), and married Cecily, daughter and heiress to Sir Jordan de Haccombe (by his wife Isabel, daughter and heiress of Sir Mauger St. Aubyn, knight., of Pidekeswell in Georgeham, co. Devon), and by her had nine sons. Ralph, the eldest, died, a.p.; Sir Warren A., knight., the second son, succeeded to Lanheme, &c., married Elizabeth, daughter and co-heir of Sir John Talbot of Richards Castle, co. Hereford, and had a daughter, Philippa, who married Sir Hugh Courtenay of Boconnoc, brother to Edward, Earl of Devon, and second son of Hugh, the tenth Earl; Odo, the third son ( Esch. 9 Henry IV., no. 39) was father of John l'Erchdekne, who, by Maud his wife, had a son and heir John, the father of Philippa and of another John (Each. 13 Edward IV.), who had two sons, viz., John, the father of Joan, his heir, who was married to -Winter, of Cornwall (Escli. l Henry VIII), and Thomas, whose daughter Mary married John Cole, asin the text. The other six sons were Richard, who married Joane, daughter of Richard Bosowr, and had Thomas, in whom the heir male of this family took an end; John ; Robert ; Martyn; Reignald ; and Michael
