Cockfield Family of Scotland, England, Australia, New Zealand & Canada
Is anyone else out there researching this family too?
If any of the following names or places ring any bells, please drop me an email as a number of descendants, including myself, are researching the family of David COCKFIELD & Janet GIRVAN who had at least five children in Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland between circa 1795-1810.
The names of the children are Edward, Mary, Catharine, John & Margaret.
Edward COCKFIELD married Beatrix NIELSON and lived in Dunbar, SCT. Their may be descendants of this line in the area and also more certainly in England & New Zealand.
Mary COCKFIELD married James PATERSON and had children in Cocksburnspath, Berwickshire, SCT. Descendants may still be in the area and elsewhere.
Catharine COCKFIELD married John ARUNDEL, ARNDLE or ARNDELL and had children around North Berwick & Haddington areas in SCT. Some descendants of this line can be found in Canada.
John COCKFIELD had children with Jane ROSS in Edinburgh before being transported to Australia, where he married Susan (Ann) HEWITT in Hobart, Tasmania and had children in that area whise descendants are now mostly found in Victoria & Queensland, Australia.
Margaret COCKFIELD married William AITKEN in Whitekirk, ELN and had children there and in Dirleton, ELN, SCT. Descendants may still be in the area.
Cheers for now,
