Conquest of Cola
« on: Saturday 11 September 21 22:44 BST (UK) »
Kia ora

I am just wanting to understand what the 'Conquest of Cola' was.

I have information regarding Benefield manor which says: 
The manor of Twineham Benfield was held before the Conquest by Cola, of King Edward the Confessor, and Turgod held it of him, for two hides. 

I have of course looked on-line but I haven't found any information that clarifies the 'conquest of cola'.

Any help appreciated.

Small references to the Cola Conquest such as:

Part II (From the Cola conquest in 1017 to the arrival of the Portuguese in 1505)

... and occupied the Sinhalese kingdom in 993 and annexed Rajarata (in the north-central region of Sri Lanka) as a province of the Cola empire.

There is probably a reason why not much is showing under Cola. Maybe its most common reference is Chola? Many links available for this, such as https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/blogs/desires-of-a-modern-indian/brief-history-of-chola-dynasty/ Also, www.britannica.com/topic/Chola-dynasty

Many more to go through on google...

Great thanks Monica, mostly it came up with that drink made in the U.S.A.

Intense reads indeed I will just scan over them and see if I can understand it and put it into a sentence or two.

I think, what is lacking, is a comma.

"the Conquest" is generally thought as the Norman Conquest 1066. King Edward is the Overlord, Cola held the manor from him, Turgod held it from Cola for the cost of two hides.

Thanks very much that now makes real sense.
I must say Cola seems such an odd name back in those days.

You need to remove your modern spectacles and forget carbonated beverages.  :)
Have you heard of a nursery rhyme "Old King Cole"?

Cola is a boy's name of English origin according to this website
https://www.thenamemeaning.com/cola
Category: Old English Names
Meaning: charcoal,  dark featured

A legendary ancient king of Britain was Coel Hen, (Coel the Old) c. 350-420, Lord of Colchester. When Henry Tudor took the throne of England in 1485 he claimed descent from Coel Hen.
Saint Cenen ap Coel was allegedly a son of Coel Hen.
There were other Coel figures in British history and legend.

Coileain (Irish Gaelic) means young warrior or hound. Celtic languages were spoken in Britain.
