Lionel Cole's records

ANDREW COLE of Edenbridge (c1480-1546)

He was probably not born in Edenbridge but came from somewhere not very far away. He married Annys Blundell, the daughter and heiress of John Blundell, yeoman, of Edenbridge, and inherited his house, lands and goods, including the "messuage next unto the churchyard". In 1546 he died leaving a will (Drb=Bishop of Rochester's court) witnessed by his brother James (of whom nothing further is known).

Andrew foresaw that his wife might remarry. In 1553 she was still Agnes Cole (will of George Cole, her son), but in 1555 she married Thomas Fraste.(or possibly Frythe)

Andrew Cole had the following children:
1. James of East Grinstead (c1500-1559).
2. John of Edenbridge (c1520-85).
3. Johane who married Richard Chapman of Edenbridge, butterman.
4. Julyan.
5. Richard.
6. George of Tonbridge, died 1552.
7. Elizabeth.
It is possible that there was also a Henry, but I (Lionel Cole) leave him out in the absence of information.

Andrew Cole had a brother JAMES COLE. Nothing is known of him except that he was the overseer of James's will and was buried in Edenbridge on January 26th 1560.
