CORNELL see CAMP

COSTON - Carole from Ontario, Canada has informed us of the following:-

My great great grandparents were in Henham in the 1790’s. They were James Coston b. 1798 , (not known where) and his 1st wife was Sophia, born 1791 (not known where) She died in 1817. They had two children.

Maria 1814-1814 and John 1816-1837, both born Henham. James remarried to Hannah and they lived in Pledgdon Green. They had Mary Ann b. 1819, Emma b. 1822, William, b 1824, James b 1827, Joseph, b 1827, William James , b,1831 . Mary Ann Coston born,1819 Pledgdon, married William Snow, b. 1817 Elsenham. My Coston and Snow families go back a long ways.

My great grandparents came to Canada about 1875, they were William Coston, born 1851, Pledgdon Green and Emma Louisa Snow, born 1860 Henham. William came to Canada first and Emma came later, and they were married in Canada and remained here.

Editor’s notes: The Coston family are mentioned in the 1841 and 1861 Census Returns. It is interesting to note there are also Costin in the same village, this maybe a corrupted spelling of the name on documents.

COWELL
Bill Cowell from Kansas advises us -
Many generations ago, our Cowell family lived in Ashdon, Thaxted and finally my great-great-grandparents Peter & Sarah Cowell lived at the Great Hyde Farm, Little Bardfield. They later moved to Henham Lodge, and my great-grandfather Ebenezer Cowell took over the farm until he moved to Midsummer Hill near Ashdon and finally to America. His brother Jasper was a farmer, preacher and architect, and was the first of our family to move to America. His wife passed away and he left six children and returned to England. He married again, and his second wife did not want to come to America. So, he persuaded my great-grandfather Ebenezer to come and take over the farm where I grew up. My grand-father Thomas Cowell was born at Henham Lodge, and I’m quite sure most of Ebenezer and Martha Perry’s family was born there.

Ebenezer and Martha Perry Cowell had nine children as follows : -

Edwin born 05.09.1862; died 1946 in Brooklyn, NY
Annie born 22.10.1863; died 19.09.1888; married Charles Moutell
Agnes born 01.01.1865; died 31.10.1928; married Nathaniel Dring, and Alfred Manning (after Nathaniel’s death)
William born 29.09.1866; died 03.01.1951; married Helen Adams, and later Roberta Clarkson (after Helen’s death)
Kate born 05.01.1868; died 21.07.1929; married Charles Howison
Thomas born 18.05.1869; died 17.09. 1964; married Edith Amy Adams
Albert Ebenezer (twin of Thomas) born 18.05.1869; died 06.06.1870
Ada born 15.12.1870; died October 1969; married Jim Boysen
Emma born 02.02.1873; died 1962; married William Starling

Ebenezer, Martha & family, with the exception of Edwin, moved to America in December 1884. Edwin later came as far as Brooklyn NY. When the Cowell family came to America, the James Yarrow family came along, and the two families have been very close here in America. The Yarrows lived in the red brick house where the lane starts to Henham Lodge.

Bill also advised us of the find in 1848 of Roman, Samian & Greyware pottery in Hall Field at Henham Lodge Farm and which was given to Saffron Walden Museum in 1891 by Mrs Susannah Cowell. She was an active member of the British Women’s Temperance Association and was buried in Little Sampford churchyard.

The Manor of Great Easton was conveyed to John Meade, of Henham (family first mentioned in 1422), by William Fitch, and in his family it continued until the failure of heirs male, on the decease of John Meade of London, merchant, who died in 1689, and of his daughters Anne, in 1758, aged 87, and Elizabeth in 1761, aged 85. Of the three sons of John Meade, of Henham, John, Robert, and George, the last had Nortofts, in Finchingfield, who kept his first court there in April, 1593.  John succeeded his father on his decease in 1602, having married Ellen, daughter of Nicholas Colin, of Broxted, by whom he had Thomas of Henham, who son John was of Matching, John, to whom he gave Dutton Hill, also Robert and William; he died in 1614.

In 1635 there arrived in Massachusetts many ships with passengers from England, and amongst those arrivals is found the name of Goodman Mead (called Gabriel Mead), who was born in 1587, and died March 12th , 1666, aged 79 years. He was probably married twice, his second wife being Johanna, the daughter of James Bates. The latter was born in 1582, and died in 1655. He sailed from Lydd, County Kent, England, in the ship ‘Elizabeth’ under Captain Stagg, in April 1635, and it is supposed his son-in-law, Goodman Mead, was in the same vessel.

OLD PHILADELPHIA FAMILIES XLVII Penington

The family of Penington (formerly spelled Pennington) of Henham, County Essex, and of Amersham, County Bucks (Buckinghamshire) in, and afterward of Philadelphia, begins with one Penington who was buried at Henham before 1557: a cadet of the ancient family of Pennington of Pennington, Lancashire, and of Muncaster, County Cumberland, which had held those manors since the time of Gamel de Penington, of Penington and Muncaster, who flourished in the reign of King Henry II, and who were created Baronets in 1676, and Barons Muncaster in1783. The connection with the main stem of Muncaster is alluded to in the will of this Penington of Henham’s great grandson, Admiral Sir John Pennington who mentions therein his cousin, William Pennington of Muncaster, and who was buried at Muncaster as a relative of that family.

This first Penington of Henham had, among other children, three sons -
Thomas Pennington, of Tottenham High Cross, County Middlesex, Gentleman;

The Admiral’s mother was Margaret Barfoot, whose family held Lambourne Hall in Essex . She was buried at Henham September 22, 1579. Robert and Margaret Pennington’s eldest son was another Robert, who married a kinswoman of Dean Newell; the Admiral was the second; and there were other children, a son Josias, and several daughters.

Admiral Sir John Pennington, of King Charles I’s Fleet, was also Treasurer of His Majesty’s Navy, and one of the Gentlemen of His Majesty’s Privy Chamber in Ordinary, Captain of Sandown Castle; knighted on board H.M.S. Unicorn April 14, 1634. He was baptised at Henham, January 30, 1568, and died unmarried in September 1646.

And I grant to Saint Edmund’s the estate at Harlow, except the half hide which AElfwine had at Ealing Bridge, and except the homestead which AElfgar occupies and the spur of land which belongs to it; and all the men are to be free.  And I grant the estate at the north hall at Shouldham to Saint Edmund’s after the death of both of us; and the men are to be three.  And I grant to Ely the estate at Weatheringsett, except the land that AEthelric has.  He is to hold that freely for his life and his wife’s, and after the death of them both, it is to go to the village church and the men are to be free.  And I grant the estate at Knapwell to Ely, except the land which Ordheah and the monk AEthelric hold; and the men are to be free.  And I grant the estate at Weston to AEthelswith, and after her death to Ely, except the land which Saewine holds in return for service, which is to go to the village church; and the men are to be free.  And I grant half of the estate at the middle hall at Shouldham to St. Benedict’s at Ramsey, and half to St Benedict’s at Holme, as it belongs there after the death of both of us; and the men are to be free.

And I grant to my royal lord **as heriot two marks of gold and two horses with trappings, and a helmet and a coat of mail and a sword and two shields and two spears.  And I desire that the estate at Bidicheseye shall be sold, and that two marks of gold shall be taken from that estate for the King’s heriot; And Earl Harold (is to receive) half a mark of gold, and Bishop Stigand half a mark of gold, and my partner one mark of gold; and one mark of gold (is to be given) to his child, Thorth’s brother, and one mark of gold to Sendi Arfast.  And what is left over, the heirs are to distribute it for the sake of his soul in his partners witness, except that the outermost mill is to go to St AEthelburg’s at Barking.

And it is my wish that Ulfketel’s and my partnership shall hold good, on the terms to which we have agreed; namely, the estate at Borough (is to go) to whichever of us shall live the longer - except half a hide at Westley and a hide at Dullingham which I grant to my servant Viking - and Ulfketel has laid down on his side four marks.

And I grant to my wife AEthelgyth  everything which I have in Norfolk, as I gave it to her before as a marriage payment and in accordance with our contract; and the estate at Pentlow and at Ashdon, except the land at Bromley which is to go to the village church after the death of both of us.  And I grant to AEthelgyth the estate at Henham, except half a hide which is to go to the church.  And I grant to the priest AElfwig and to my chaplain Thurstan and to my chaplain Ordheah that they shall have the estate at Kedington after our death.  And I grant to Merewine and his wife and their children the estate at Dunmow except half a hide which is to go to the church, and a homestead.  And to my servants I grant the wood at Ongar, except that the deer-enclosure and the stud which I have there.

There are three of these documents: one shall go to Saint Edmunds, and want to Ely, and one shall be in my own household.

And Thurstan and AEthelgyth and Askil grant to AEthelswith the estate at Henham after their death; and after her death the estate is to go to Saint Etheldreda’s for her own soul and for Thurstan's and for AEthelgyth's and for Leofwaru's and for Askil's except the two hides which AEthelmaer Parl has, and except the one hide which Wulfmaer had, and one yardland which Lustwine had. And I grant to Thurgot, my servant, a half-hide which AElfstan occupies at Ongar, and to Merewine a half-hide and the little enclosure near 'Meredene', and to Swein half a hide; and they may obtain what is left over by agreement with us both, if we are willing to allow them.
