Cowland
« on: Friday 27 November 09 10:03 GMT (UK) »
My great x3 grandmother was Lucy Cowland, born in Moreton, Essex about 1799. I'd be interested to hear from anyone with knowledge of this surname in that area.

I do not have any connection to the Cowland family but I do have Cowland's on my names data base for the Noak Hill area that where born in Kelvedon, Navestock and Noak Hill, all of which are only about six miles as the crow flies from Morton/Ongar. If you have any from the areas mentioned I will look in my data base for you if it helps at all.

Many thanks for your reply, OR. I only know of Moreton at present. Lucy's father was James Cowland - I have no dates for him but  guess he was born between 1750 and 1778. If he seems to be on your lists I'd be pleased to know.

Hello Jimmymac,

You're going to love this!
Here's a link to the page of the Moreton Parish register, showing Lucy's baptism. It's right at the bottom.

Not only does the excellent vicar/curate name Lucy's parents, but also their parents too.  How lucky is that!

I haven't looked right through the register, which is a bit difficult to read, so you might find even more.

It's such a fantastic resource for those of us looking in Essex

Dear Yorkslass

Brilliant! I had no idea any vicars kept this sort of record. Thanks so much for finding it.

Perhaps they were in competition with the nonconformists, and thought that more detailed records would encourage their flock to stay with them...

many thanks

James

Hello

I'm new to roots and have just seen you were looking up the Cowland name.

I have Cowlands in my lineage.  Josiah Cowland 1828  and sister Pheobe 1826, Little Dalby Essex.  Father William Cowland 1797 who married Sarah. His father is also a William married to Rebecca. They were ag labourers and lived Bardfield/Epping area.

I cannot see a Lucy in my tree but wondered if you recognise any of my Cowlands  :)

Hi,

I have a lot of Cowlands in my family tree as my mother in law was a Cowland before marrying. I have traced their history back to James Cowland 1771. They all lived in the Moreton, Bobbingworth, Magdalen Laver areas of Essex. I would to find out a bit more information regarding your Lucy Cowland as she must be connected somehow.
