William Cole Coale
William Coles/Coales married Mary Royale/Riall. He died 1710 in Nottingham, Chester Co., PA.
I have read reports that it is believed that he was born in England. Does anyone out there have any documentation to show when he came over? I can't find a thing.
I want to float a thought and am looking for input on this.
I believe that William was most probably born in the Anne Arundel Maryland area. This Cole/Coale family is found in the Virginia/Pennsylvania/Maryland area and were also Quakers. Names in conjunction with my Cole line are: Shaw, Firth, Paine, Hall, "Seasdorp" (not sure what correct spelling is), Haines and Reynolds. Any connections out there that might connect?
I believe that his father might be the William Coale(s) who married about 4 times. All of his children are not known. And as our William died so young (about 6 years after his marriage) he probably is not mentioned in his father's will.
Thanks, Linda M.
