I am performing an extensive research on the Cogdale family name. The family tree currently extends from the UK to the United States, New Zealand, Canada and Australia. I have proved beyond doubt that all Cogdale family surnames that exist today in the UK can be traced to the marriage of Philip Cogdell and Mary Archer on 6th August 1770 at St. Michael & All Angels Church, Roxwell, Essex.
The name Cogdale, Cogdell, Cockdale and other derivations can be traced back to the 1500's in the Hertfordshire area (St. Albans, Elstree, Aldenham) and has mainly been spelled Cogdale or Cogdell. Those ancestors from Essex chose to spell the name Cogdale from the 1800's onwards.
I currently have a fairly complete geneological history from 1837-2006 under the UK General Register Office (GRO) Births, Deaths and Marriages and extended many lines back past these dates via Parish Registers. I currently have 1688 individual names, 417 different surnames, 516 marriages and an average life span of as of 56 years 11 months - the earliest entry year being 1688.
I have been able to go back to circa 1745 with the birth of Philip Cogdell but unable to connect him to his parents. The current challenge is discovering this information, plus connecting my ancestry line to that other Cogdell ancestry lines. This involves studing numerous Parish registers and Wills from 1700-1800 at present.
I welcome any contributors to my study and want to extend thanks to Graham Anderson, Sylvia Heggie, June Marilyn-May, Mary Cogdale, Margaret Luetchford, Chris Cogdale, Glynn Eastman, Alice Cogdale, Philip Cogdale, Paul Gardiner, Joan Cogdale, Joan Potts, Marian Gillies, Kathleen Banks, Gillian Carter and Sylvia Bourner for their invaluable help.
Names being researched: Cogdale, Cogdell, Byard, Hodgson, Gardiner, Blows, Moore, Wheeler, Porter, Oddy, Clark, Sheldrake, Menday, Lovett, Bourner, Candler, Ellis, Hughes, Wood, Ketley, Emerson and Bearman.
