The name Coggles is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in Cockhill, in Yorkshire. It is from the place-name that the family name is derived.

The surname Coggles was first found in North Yorkshire, at Cockhill (Cock Hill) where the earliest known bearer of the name was Ralph de Coghull, who was listed in the Assize Rolls of 1286. The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Elizabetha de Cokhill and Johannes de Cockhill. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Coggles family emigrate to North America: Mary Coghill, who settled in Virginia in 1684; George Coggshill, who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1822; and D.J. Coghill, who arrived in San Francisco, California in 1851..

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Non dormit qui custodit
Motto Translation: No sleep for those on guard.
