Hope this helps:

Richard Cossum c1725-1793 b. Northhaim d. Hastings, bur. Bodiam, Sussex
Elizabeth (Tress?)  Cossum 1733-1807 b.? d. Hastings? bur. Bodiam. Will probated April 1807
Married: Bodiam 1751
Children: Elizabeth 1754, John 1756-1829, Richard 1758-, Ann 1760-64, Francis 1763- c1805 (pre-deceased mother ref her will - DOD unknown - died Maidenhead Berks, wife Sarah Devas - my 4xGF), All christened Northaim. Last girls Sarah 1771-, Mary 1772- both christened Hastings.

Still looking for POB for Richard and Elizabeth.
Richard was executor to his uncle John Cossum of Hastings, will 1773

Suspect family originally from Kent - have evidence of link from Hastings to Ann Cossum m. John Colegate Tonbridge 1744. Other Cossum's in Ashurst, Kent area early 1700.

Richard and John Cossum all associated with drapery business. Francis also same in Maidenhead and his son Charles 1800-1843 also in London.

Cheers

Thanks that's a great help.
Do you know if Francis Cossum and Sarah Devas had other children apart from Charles?  Also when did Sarah Devas (Cossum) die.
Charles Cossum married Mary Ann House c.1813-d.1859 who was born in Stokenchurch in Oxon. They married in St.Pancras Church in 1837. They had two children Mary b.1838 and Francis b1840.  My great grandfather William Jenkins, a Barometer maker, married Mary Cossum in 1856 in St.Mark's Church, Clerkenwell. Mary died in 1873 having had 7 children.
Any additional info you might have would be highly appreciated.
Regards

Hi , My 4th Great-grandfather was Francis Cossum, who was married to Sarah Devas. His father was Richard Cossum, but I cannot find the parents of Richard. Their daughter Sarah Cossum is my 3d great-grandmother, she married William Everett Smith, who also was a draper.
 Living in Norway, I find searching for scanned records really difficult in England. Do you know what part of the Cossums or Devas where Huguenot's? This is what information was passed down from my grandmother. I would love to share the little I have of my family. Best regards
Andrea
