Cole Family International
This site is for reference and discussion purposes through the publication of resources to enable the extension and inclusion of additional pedigree, linking the scattered family of Cole that has grown and spread world-wide from the original Devonshire family of older than 1000 years, and in a small way to acknowledge that achievement.
Whenever required, additional countries, counties, and links to personal web-pages shall be included, and arms inserted for the vacant shields as descendants determine their connection to the original families.
The medieval pedigree published for the English counties has been referenced through various sources and is to be preferred to the version in LDS Ancestral File which is no longer accurate. These sources include:
College of Arms: Visitation Pedigree A.D.1573
Cole J.E.: Genealogy of the Family of Cole; A.D.1867
LDS: Ancestral File, and IGI
Arden J.: Cole, A.D.200 - A.D.1920; A.D.1920
Burkes: Cole of Marazion; A.D.1863
Other sources are footnoted to text where relevant.
