NEHGR v111 pp168-173 (Jul 1957)
"Henry Cogan, youngest child and third surviving son of Henry Cogan by wife, Joane
Boridge, was baptized at the Church of St. Mary Magdalen, Taunton, co. Somerset, 6 April
1607. He does not appear among the legatees of his father's will... We think it highly
probable, all but proved beyond doubt, that this Henry Cogan is the man who appears in
American records as Mr. Henry Coggen, of Barnstable, Mass., and we think the known contact
with James Glass, nephew of the Taunton Henry Cogan, and the kinship, to be mentioned
later, with a woman baptized in Taunton, present very strong indications that the
identification is sound. We should still, however, welcome further proof... The wife of
Henry Coggen was Abigail Bishop, daughter of Thomas Bishop, of Bridport, co. Dorset, and
of his wife Avis Abbott... While in England, perhaps on a voyage without his family, Henry
Coggen died about 16 June 1649."
