5  Robert Cowgill, son of Bryan and Ellen Cowgill, bapt 16 Aug 1576, Thornton in Craven, bur 28 Dec 1652, St Mary's, Carleton in Craven, m Alice ____. Robert, described as a yeoman of Kirk Hill, had a will dated 27 Nov 1652, proved 12 Jul 1661 (York reg vol 43 fol 407) … "I bequeath unto Alice my now wife my old? (looks like “old” as below) lands during her natural life; and as touchinge the two Acres which I purchased of my brother William adjoining to the lands of John Hewitt (he was a witness to the will), I devise to my nephew Jonathan Cowgill and his heirs forever. And after the natural life of my said wife I give & bequeath unto Jonathan Cowgill aforesaid my foresaid old? (looks like “old” as above) lands for ever upon the condition hereafter mentioned. And as touchinge the two acres aforesaid my mind is that Jonathan aforesaid enter to the same immediately after the decease of me Robert Cowgill. And concerning the conditions before mentioned, my will and mind is that Jonathan aforesaid pay unto my Nephew Richard Cowgill 4 li (pounds); Item to Embrie my brother one pound; Item to Willim (sic) Cowgill of little Newton (in Long Preston), one pound; Item to Martin Cowgill one pound; to John Cowgill of Carleton one pound 9 sh 6d; to Joseph Cowgill one pound 9 sh 6d; to Bryan Cowgill clerk(?) 1 sh; to John Cowgill of Earbie one pound; to James Cowgill one pound; to Christopher Cowgill one pound; to William Cowgill of Carleton one pound; to Ambrose Cowgill one pound; to my nephew Robert Cowgill one pound; to Bryan Cowgill, shoemaker, one pound; to James Cowgill of Lothersden one pound; to Annisse? Cowgill one pound; to Gennett Cowgill one pound; to Marie Cowgill one pound; to Thomas Smith of Lothersden 1 sh; to William Smyth of shawhead 1 sh; to Barbarie Barret one shilling; to Marie Smith her sister one shilling; to my Nephew James Smith one shilling; to Barbara Cowgill my neece (sic) one pound fifteen shillings; to Margaret Cowgill her sister one pound; to Gennett Cowgill, widow, 10 sh; to Marie Cowgill, my neece 10 sh; to Bryan Cowgill brother of Richard aforesaid 6 sh 8d; to Christopher Cowgill 6 sh 8d; to Gennett Cowgill sister of Richard aforesaid 6 sh 8d. Alice & Jonathan joint execs.” Witnesses were John and William Hewitt and an illegible name.

 

    Note: why did it take so long to probate this will? Several problems arise in this will: Robert favors his nephew, Jonathan Cowgill (son of his deceased brother, Bartholomew), over his son Ambrose for some reason. Robert refers to his cousins, children of his uncle, James Cowgill, as his “neeces” (sic) and nephews. James, as one of the younger of grandfather Richard Cowgill’s children, may have seemed more brother than uncle. However, this poses the question as to whether “my brother William” is, in reality, Robert’s brother William or his uncle William, since his uncle William was even younger than his uncle James.

 

Child: known is - Ambrose

 

1  Ambrose Cowgill bapt 12 Apr 1612, St Mary’s, Carleton in Craven, d 1677, m Grace _____, bur 13 May 1681, Carleton in Craven. Grace was appointed administrator of Ambrose’s estate 27 Oct 1677 (listed in Act Books fol 113; 5 Oct 1677). On 14 Jan 1639/40, at West Riding Court, Wetherbie, Ambrose (described as a laborer) was accused of stealing two sheep; he also made suit against a third party. Given the gap in birthdates between son John and son Robert, Grace may be a 2nd wife or there may be other children.

Children: known are – John, Robert, Anne, William, Margaret

 

1  John Cowgill bapt 1 Sep 1639, St Mary’s, Carleton in Craven, bur 28 Jun 1699, Carleton in Craven, m(1) _____; m(2) 12 Jul 1692, Carleton in Craven, Agnes Noble. This is possibly one of the two John Cowgills listed on the Lady Day, 1672, Hearth Tax Lists for one hearth/chimney in Carleton in Craven, and one of the two John Cowgills on the 1696 Association Oath Rolls for Staincliffe Wapentake. Note: it is possible that this marriage and all or some of John's children listed below belong instead to the John Cowgill bapt 8 Jul 1640. Both apparently lived near Kirk Hill, and the parish clerk appeared to use the terms "of Kirk Hill" and "John Jun'r" to refer to either one as well as the John Cowgill bapt 27 Sep 1671.

Children: thought (see Note) to include - Elizabeth, John, Jonathan

 

1  Elizabeth Cowgill bapt 24 Mar 1669/70, St Mary’s, Carleton in Craven. This is either the Elizabeth Cowgill of Carleton who m John Blackburn 4 Apr 1700, or she could be the Elizabeth Cowgill of Carleton who was bur at St Mary’s 12 Jan 1711/1712.

 

2  John Cowgill bapt 27 Sep 1671, St Mary’s, Carleton in Craven, d before 1754 (when grandson John was referred to as “John, Jr”), m(1) 22 May 1686, Carleton in Craven, Ellen Johnson, bur 9 Mar 1703/4, Carleton in Craven; m(2) 1 Jun 1704, St Peter’s, Huddersfield, Elizabeth Balmfirth (also as Bamford). This John may be one of the two John Cowgills on the 1696 Association Oath Rolls for Staincliffe Wapentake. He is probably the John Cowgill mentioned in Edward Cowgill's will of 1702 as being in possession of a dwelling house of Edward's "situate in Carleton". John is described in early Kirkheaton parish register entries as “of Dalton”. His grandson, John Cowgill bapt 9 Feb 1733/4 (see below), was the subject of a 1771 order of removal back to Carleton by the Kirkheaton Overseers of the Poor. Note: it is possible, but unlikely, that this marriage and children belong to John’s father since this is a very young age for marriage. Joseph’s birth date may be the factor.   

Children: known are - Joseph, Mary (1st), Esther, Anne, Mary (2nd), Elizabeth, John, William, Henry

 

1  Joseph Cowgill (listed as “son of John Cowgill Jr”) bapt 11 Sep 1687, St Mary’s, Carleton in Craven. No further information.

At marriage, John and Alice were described as “of this parish”. Ann is probably the An (sic) Cowgill who m 8 Sep 1765 at Kirkheaton to Luke Firth.

Children: known are – Isaac, John, Joseph, William, Abraham, Thomas, James, David

 

1  Isaac Cowgill bapt 10 Oct 1731, Kirkheaton, bur 23 May 1810, Kirkheaton (“Mr Isaac Cowgill of Heaton”), m 1 Mar 1764 (“Isaac Cowgill of Huddersfield”; Witnesses, Jno. Hall, Robert Clarkson), Hartshead, Dewsbury Parish, Mary Walker, bur 2 Aug 1813, age 81. Isaac was described in parish records as an innkeeper in Marsden. He is listed in The Manchester Directory beginning 1773 as an inn keeper food/drink, at the Spread Eagle, Front Salford, Manchester. Isaac must have retained contact with his old home as he is listed as a church warden at Kirkheaton for the years 1792/3, 1793/4, and 1797/8. Isaac left a will (1 Dec 1810; Will of Isaac Cowgill, Gentleman of Kirkheaton, Yorkshire. Proved in the Court of York. IR 26/433) in which he made bequests to wife Mary (goods etc at Manchester), sons Joseph, William, and Charles. Charles appeared to have no heirs at the time of writing - his share was to go to Joseph's heirs if he (Charles) remained childless.

8  Marsden Cowgill b 1806, bur 17 Oct 1806, age 4m, St Thomas', Pendleton (near Salford).

Child: known is – William

 

1  William Cowgill bapt 9 Nov 1798, South Parade Wesleyan, Halifax (probably the same child bapt 1 Mar 1799 in the Halifax Church of England), bur 6 Feb 1805, age 6, South Parade Wesleyan (the will of Isaac Cowgill indicated Charles had no living heirs in 1810).

 

6  John Cowgill bapt 29 Aug 1773, Cathedral, Manchester. Is this the John Cowgill, “gentleman”, bur 18 Sep 1794, in the churchyard at Kingston, Jamaica?

 

2  John Cowgill bapt 9 Feb 1733/4, Kirkheaton, bur 11 Feb 1792, m 24 Oct 1754 (“both this parish with the consent of parents"), Kirkheaton, Grace Lifter of Colnbridge, bur 14 Aug 1811, Kirkheaton, “of Lepton”. John was referred to as “John Cowgill, junior,” in Kirkheaton Parish transcripts prior to his father’s death; later as John Cowgill “of Heaton”. His home at marriage was listed as Helm (Heaton?). John is mentioned in the West Yorkshire Court Order Books of 4 Oct 1770: "Upon the appeal of the churchwardens, overseers of the poor of the township of Carlton in the said Riding against an order under the hands and seals of Henry Wickham junior esquire and Henry Louith, clerk, two of his Majestie's justices of the peace for the said Riding, hearing date the thirteenth day of July last past made for the removal of John Cowgill and Grace his wife and Joseph, William, James, John, Hannah, and Thomas their children from the township of Kirkheaton in the said Riding to Carlton aforesaid, It is Ordered that the said appeal be respited till the next General Quarter Sessions of the peace to be held for the said Riding by adjournment at Wakefield." The Order of Removal was confirmed at the Quarter Sessions of 17 Jan 1771. Presumably John was returned to Carleton parish in accordance with the court order, although, if so, he soon returned to Kirkheaton.

This is probably the Joseph Cowgill listed as a merchant in Salford in directories of the 1790s. The 11 Dec 1810 edition of the Manchester Mercury contained an article concerning a commission of bankruptcy hearing of 19 Dec 1801 “awarded and issued forth against Joseph Cowgill of Manchester, merchant, dealer and chapman (trading with William Cowgill and James Bowman, of the Island of Jamaica) …”. This Joseph, or his cousin, son of Isaac (above)?

This William Cowgill is probably the one who was a church warden for 1805/6, 1806/7, and 1807/8 at Kirkheaton parish church. William, as “William the Elder”, left a will (p340) probated Jun 1825.

Joseph Cowgill and Matthew Sheard co-execs. Mary’s will, dated 15 Jun 1842 (probated 16 Feb 1844; p29/30), “Mary Cowgill of Spring Grove in Lepton” mentions dau Mary, w of Joseph Senior; dau Hannah, w of Thomas Hudson; dau Elizabeth, deceased, was w of Joseph Senior; sons Michael Sheard, Edward, Joseph, William, John, and Isaac (the last four named were co-execs). Note: Mary mentions a son Edward in her will, not mentioned in William’s will. Did she mean grandson? This must be the William Cowgill, "cloth draper of Dalton", convicted (with two others) 22 Jan 1803 at Wakefield of wilfully and maliciously intimidated (name illegible, but something about business irregularities), and sentenced to two months hard labor in the House of Corrections at Wakefield.

7  John Cowgill (2nd) bapt 5 Mar 1720/1, St Andrews, Kildwick. No further information.

 

Robert Cowgill, son of Ambrose and Grace Cowgill, bapt 20 Dec 1646, St Mary’s, Carleton in Craven, bur 3 Feb 1707/8, Leeds, m 4 Jun 1679, St Peter’s, Leeds, Grace Hargrave. Burial record describes Robert as of Leeds, Lower (as “Lowr”) headrow (sic). Robert may have had a 2nd marriage to an Ann ____, bur 11 Mar 1686 as wife of Robert Cogill. He may also have had three other children: a John Cogill, son of Robert, bur 6 Sep 1685; and two infant Cogills, children of Robert, bur 8 Mar 1686. Another possible child was a Joseph Coggill (also shown as Coghill and Cockhill), whose line died out in Leeds in the early 1720s. Note: the baptism is correct, but the remaining information belongs to a family that begins with a Robert Cowgill in Leeds who, by date of marriage, seems to fit here (but may not). This line may not even be Cowgill – names in parish registers, census records, and UK vital statistics vary over the years and include Cowdill/Cowdell and Coldwell/Couldwell as well as Cowgill, Coghill, and Coggill. There apparently were families by the other surnames in that area (DNA would clear this up), and their pronunciations may have confused parish clerks.

John was a carpenter in Thornton in Craven, also serving as postmaster (on 1881 census). John’s family line and a photo of John and Hannah are on Laureen Wreggitt’s website. (Note: the Cowgill DNA project would permit establishing James as John’s father). Mary Ann Cowgill Riley had a son, Harry Cowgill Rycroft, b 1891.

Joseph is probably the Joseph Cowgill listed on 1782 tax records (first year available) as a leaser of land in Steeton (Kildwick), then in Sutton in Kildwick for 1784 and 1785; he was described as a carpenter of Kelbrook on Benjamin’s birth record (1786); by 1790 he was described as a weaver in Blearside in Harden (Earby); at Foulridge in 1793; and of Hill Top (Earby) from 1804. This Joseph is listed on the 1803 Craven Muster Roll for Thornton as a weaver, class 2 (unmarried, age 30-49, no children under ten years of age). This would appear to be the Joseph Cowgill shown on tax lists as leasing land, probably the parcel his father leased, from George Smith beginning 1802. Note: The available data supports this lineage with two exceptions: at his marriage to Jane, he is described in the record as a “bachelor”, not widower (and where was son Benjamin?); and the Craven Muster Roll lists him as having no children under age 10 when he had three. Was there another Joseph?
