The gap in Coston lineage from 1400 to 1600 remains unfilled. But around 1500, there is a William Coston, and he has a son, Thomas Coston de Coston (D 1546)who marries a Elizabeth Leighton de la Cotes (D 1546). Among their several children is Thomas Coston (B 1545 D 1640), and one of Thomas' children is Thomas (B 1609) who marries Elizabeth. Among their several children is Matthew (B 1664) who marries Elizabeth (D 1699) and later Dorothy. Among the two children of Matthew and Elizabeth is Thomas (B 1696) who marries Elizabeth in 1719. Thomas and Elizabeth have ten children, with the last being Ebenezer (B 1734), who might well be the first Coston born in this country.
Ebenezer married Betsey Goffe (B 8/17/1739 in NH). Their eldest child was Betsey Goffe (B in NH) who married Capt Goffe (B in NH).
And thats story (and a little more) that my grandfather told me.
