Prior to the invention of the printing press in the last hundred years, documents were basically unique.

Spelling variations of the name Cossons include Cossens, Cossins, Cossons, Cosen, Cosens and others.

First found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
