Cogswell in Historic homes etc. of Wocester
John Cogswell, the immigrant ancestor, was born in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England, in 1592, the son of Edward and Alice Cogswell, of an ancient and honourable English lineage. He married, in England, September 10, 1615, Elizabeth Thompson, daughter of Rev. William and Phillis Thompson. Her father was vicar of the parish. They resided at Westbury till 1635, when they settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts. They came on the ill-fated ship “Angel Gabriel,” which was wrecked off the Maine coast August 15, 1635, the passengers of which were washed ashore at Pemaquid, Maine. Mr. Cogswell was the third settler in that part of Ipswich now the town of Essex. He was admitted a freeman March 3, 1636. He was a farmer in America, but a woollen manufacturer in the old country, and the English Cogswells at Westbury still own and operate woollen mills there, or did so until recently. His descendants have been very prominent in Massachusetts in every generation...his daughter Hannah married, 1652, Deacon Cornelius Waldo.

Hannah Cogswell
Hannah (Cogswell) Waldo was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Thompson) Cogswell of Ipswich, who was born in 1624 at Westbury Leigh, county Wilts, England. She came to New England with her parents in the Angel Gabriel, which sailed from Bristol, May 23, 1635. The ship was flung upon the shore at Pemaquid in a frightful gale. Several of the passengers and crew were lost in the mishap.

She died on December 25, 1704, at Charlestown, Massachusetts, where she had probably gone after the death of her husband, to live with her daughter, Rebecca. She was buried in the Phipps street burying-ground. Her gravestone was still standing in 1900.
