  • Notes 
    • From Genealogy of Cole Family:

      There is a very long line of William Coles that have been added to Family Search that connect this William Cole to Justice Cole and further back in the mists of time. But in examining all of these sources associated with these lineages I find no real sources of information. So I have omitted those persons and started the lineage here with William and Agnes de Northwood Cole.

      It hath  been  asserted  that  this  family  derives  its origin  from Coel, the founder of  Colchester, one of the Kings of  Britain.Yet without claiming as its patriarch either this renowned descendant of  Caractacus, or the Justice Cole, who lived in the reign of  King Alfred, or the valiant General Cola, who, in command of the united forces of Devon, Somerset, and Dorset, defeated at Pinhoe,* in 1001, Sweyne, the savage Chieftain  of the Danes, its high antiquity and rank amongst the magnates of the land in Saxon times are attested by  Domesday  Book,  and. by  "This deed of  King William's, the Conqueror,  [which] was written  in the Saxon Tongue, 5° W. C. 1070, and was put into English 1587, 15° Maij, A0  27 Reg. Eliza bethre, and remains [1630] in the Bishop of Winchester's custody." "William, King, greetes Walkesein, Bishop, and Hugon de Port, and Edward   Knighte,  Steward,  and Algesime  and  Symon  and Allfus,  Porveiour, and  COLE  and  Arderne  and all the Barons in Hampshire and Wiltshire friendly-and Know ye that I give unto St. Peter and Walcholyne Bishopt with all the convent to be as free asBishop Alsyme was in the days of King Edward, and to hold and enjoy all the privileges greate and small and I give commaundment that noe man for me or any other withstand or deny them the same, or disquiet that which I doe graunt in any wise unto St. Peter or Walcholyne Bishop Ol' any of his successors."
      "This is in the Inspeximus of the Charters of confirmacions made to Richard Fox and Peter Courtney, Bishops of Winchester, as they are inrolled in the Chauncery, 30 jan. 2° H. 8, and 15 Nov. 4° H. 8.''
      The precise period of the settlement of this baron on the borders of the counties of Devon and Cornwall is not ascertained, but it was, doubtless, soon after the above date, as he accompanied the bold Martin de Tours (or Turribus) from hence, on his marauding expedition into Cemaes, South Wales, and was ancestor of the families of Cole, Young, and Mathias.*
      William Cole and Ysabellat his wife are named in AElsize Roll of the County of Cornwall, in the third year of King John (anno domini 1201). In the fourteenth year of King John (1212) Roger Colet granted to Edith, late wife of Ralph Burdeville, a capital messuage and lands in Hoke---, in the county of Devon, to be held of him for the term of her life, with remainder to himself and his heirs ; and in 1219 mention is made of Roger Cole in a Fine roll relating to a third part of one knight's fee in Hardwinesleigh,§ in the same county.
      "Richard Cole, of the County of Devon," says Segar, "lived in the tyme of Henry III., as appears by the Charter (to the Monastery of Bromere) of Amiee Redvers, Countess of Devon." But it is not known what relationship he, or the above-named persons, bore to
      1 WILLIAM COLE, of Hutenesleigh (now called Hittisleigh) in the county of Devon, living in the year 1243, whose son and heir
