James, son of John Cowell 08 Aug 1599
The referenced entry is from "Devon, England, Extracted Parish Records: Barnstaple - Parish Register, 1538-1812"
I am looking for anyone who may be researching this family - I am trying to determine if this family may be related to my James COLE, born about 1600, in Barnstaple, Devon...
My reasoning is based on the entry for the baptism record (same source as listed above) of Hugh (son of James) in 1628 where the surname is spelled COALE...when the family emigrated, the name was recorded as COLE...
If you are researching COWELL, COALE, or COLE in Barnstaple, Devon, I would like to hear from you...if you have access to the local records in Devon I would LOVE to hear from you!
