Sussex / Cotton of Crowhurst
« on: Tuesday 04 March 14 04:36 GMT (UK)  »
George and Mary Cotton had three children christened at Crowhurst. George was the son of George Cotton and Constance Iden of Hadlow, Kent. Mary was probably Mary Eliott who married George Cotton in Hellingly, Sussex in Feb. 1680. The children were -
Thomas, chr. Feb. 6, 1681
Mary, chr. July 6, 1684
George, chr. Nov. 21, 1690

I'm trying to determine if either Thomas or George left descendants. Does anyone know this family? Thanks.

Essex / Cotten of Colchester
« on: Saturday 02 November 13 23:17 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for any information on a John Cotten who was christened at St. Nicholas, Colchester Nov. 26, 1615. He may have been the son of John Cotten and Katherine Evans who were married at St. Botolph in 1609.
Thanks.

I found a record dated January 13, 1659 in which "William Cotton, of Virginia, mariner," son and heir of William Cotton, for 25 of English money sold to William Kendall of Accomac Co., VA one house with two tenements at Bedminster, near Bristol, formerly belonging to his father, William Cotton, deceased. Does anyone have any knowledge of this William Cotton in Bedminster? Thanks.

Oxfordshire / Cotton family of Banbury
« on: Thursday 15 November 12 09:56 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for information on a Cotton family who lived at Banbury, OXF at the beginning of the 19th century but relocated to Salford shortly thereafter. Most of the members of the family are listed as boat builders or ship carpenters in the census records. Does anyone know the origins of this family? I am trying to find out if they originally lived in Leicestershire before moving to Banbury. Thanks.

Leicestershire / Cotton of Lubenham
« on: Tuesday 06 November 12 08:59 GMT (UK)  »
Thomas Cotton was born about 1846, the son of Thomas and Mary Cotton of Lubenham/Market Harborough. The younger Thomas married Eliza and had the following children - Ernest S., b. 1872; Elizabeth M., b. 1873; Walter, b. 1878; Maud, b. 1880; Charles T., b. 1883; and Bertha, b. 1885. Ernest married Maud and had two daughters listed in the 1911 census. I am trying to determine if Ernest, Walter, or Charles ever had any sons and if there are any direct male line descendants living today. Does anyone know this family?

Leicestershire / Cotton family - Laughton, Broughton Astley, Dadlington, North Kilworth
« on: Saturday 18 September 10 09:16 BST (UK)  »
My earliest verifiable ancestor was a John Cotton who first appeared in the records of colonial Virginia in the latter part of the 17th century. It seemed that I had exhausted my paper trail years ago but I recently came across a possible clue though it may be a bit of a stretch. According to some sources, John Cotton's wife Ann (Harrison?) came from Northampton. Her cousin, Eleanor Barnard, is said to have married a Samuel Cotton who I have discovered was born about 1626 and was the 4th son of Thomas Cotton who lived at Laughton in Leicestershire. If these two cousins both married men named Cotton, I thought the chances are good that their husbands may be related.

Samuel later lived at Dadlington (or Dallington) and was for some time sheriff of Leicestershire. His brother, William, was rector of Broughton Astley, and an uncle, also named Samuel, was rector of North Kilworth. Thomas had another brother named John, born about 1598, who I can find nothing else about. I would appreciate any info on this family and especially what became of John.

I would particularly like to find a living direct male line descendant of the family who may agree to DNA testing as this may be the only to make the connection. 14 members of our family in America have already tested so we would have a good base to compare the results to.

Hertfordshire / COTTON/TAYLOR of Hitchin
« on: Friday 30 July 10 07:17 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for descendants of Alfred Samuel Cotton, born about 1879 in Hitchin, HRT. He was the son of Charles Cotton and Hannah Worsley Taylor. Alfred was still single and living with his mother in Hitchin at the time of the 1911 census but may have been married to Emily Dean in 1919 at Brentford, MDX.
