Re: Origin of Coggins Name
Sir De Milo Cogan founded Cogan Nr. Cardiff (Norman Baron circa 1153).
He was buried in Wells which suggests links to West Country ?
Name is origionally 'Old French' - son of CUCHOGARDH meaning Hounds of War. It is believed that name became Mac COGADHAIN when settled in Ireland.
Coggins appears to be a west Country corruption of Cogan ( Somerset mainly).
