Bryan was in Trawden by 1660 and is listed on the 1664 Hearth Tax list as having two chimneys or hearths, which meant he was of moderate means. He received a bequest in Robert Cowgill’s will of 1652 and was mentioned in brother Richard’s will of 1675 (see above), who specified that brother Christopher was deceased but did not do so for Bryan. Neither he nor any of his children were mentioned in his mother's will. Note: It is possible that this Brian and his line belong instead to the Brian, son of Christopher, b 1625.

He is listed on tax records as a leaser of land at Harden from 1783, a parcel later (by 1795) leased by his son, Joseph Cowgill. Note: the following line is presumed to belong to this James rather than his cousin James, son of William (above) because cousin James appeared to have moved from Trawden. The absence of birth records may indicate that James was a member of a non-conformist church whose records are lost.

3  William Cowgill b ca 1748 (bapt 15 Apr 1798, Colne, aged 49y, “son of James & Martha Cowgill"), bur 29 Nov 1824, age 78y, St Peter’s, Manningham (Bradford), m 4 Jul 1771, St Bartholomew's, Colne, Mary Sharp, bur 27 Jun 1811, St Peter's, Bradford. William was described at his baptism as a weaver of Morehouse (probably Moor House); he was a farmer “of Thornton” in 1771; in Carleton in 1772; Monkroyd (near Barnoldswick or near Laneshawbridge?) in 1774; “Harding” (Harden) in 1776; the parish of “Gill” (Barnoldswick) in 1776, and as a farmer of Moor Close in Barnoldswick by 1780. William appears on Barnoldswick land tax lists in 1782 (first year available) through 1801 as a lessee from John Sutcliffe/John Hargraves. He appears on Manningham (Bradford) tax lists beginning 1801 as the owner of two parcels formerly taxed to a Thomas Cowgill (a son?). One of those parcels was later (by 1810) occupied by his son-in-law William Rangdale. He is also shown, beginning 1808, as owner of a parcel (Bailey Fold) in Allerton formerly taxed to his son John (see below). He apparently took up residence there about 1809. William’s will, proved 20 Jan 1825 (Yorkshire Wills, Vol 171, p23), mentions only his son Bryan whom he named executor and the only one named for bequests. He described himself as a farmer of Manningham in his will. Note: According to Manningham, Heaton, and Allerton, townships of Bradford, treated historically and topographically by William Cudworth, 1896, a William Cowgill, nephew (according to Cudworth) to Thomas Cowgill (son of the John Cowgill bapt 8 Jun 1670 - see above), succeeded Thomas at the Trees estate in Manningham. However, Thomas named his nephew Joseph Wilkinson as his heir in his will, and Joseph, apparently unmarried and childless, left most of his estate to his live-in housekeeper, Sarah Hitching. Yet not long after Joseph's death (in 1798), this William's family was in possession of Thomas' lands. What is the connection? One possibility is that this William's father, James Cowgill, is instead the James Cowgill, son of William, bapt 2 Jun 1707 at Keighley. More documentation needed.

Children: known are (was Thomas another son?) - James, John, Betty, William, Martha, Sarah, Brian

 

1  James Cowgill bapt 3 May 1772, St Mary's, Carleton in Craven, d 27 Apr 1845, age 73, m 30 Jul 1799, St Bartholomew's, Colne, Ellen Ashworth, b ca 1777, d 19 Aug 1846, age 69. At marriage, James was described as "of Barnoldswick"; in 1803 as a surgeon in Spout House; listed as a veterinary surgeon in Priestfield, Colne, in 1825 (apparently there by 1810); and as "surgeon" there on the 1841 census. Cudworth, in Manningham, Heaton, and Allerton, townships of Bradford, treated historically and topographically, states James inherited from his father two farms at Wyke. James' will, dated 16 Aug 1842 (probated or "passed" 24 Jun 1845), mentions wife Ellen, late dau Mary Hudson, sons William and John, and son-in-law Isaac Royds (Rhodes). His sons and son-in-law were designated co-executors. James and Ellen bur Winewall Inghamite Church.
