ii. MARY READ, b. 1704.

Notes for MARY READ:
The only way I know that Mary is Cozens Read’s sister is because when I visited Eythrope Park Farm, Buckinghamshire in 2000, she is shown as his sister (his only sibling shown) in the huge Rose Family Tree book that I saw. There are no other details shown for her and I have not yet discovered anything in the registers that show she is his sister, therefore nothing else known about her. (as of 2004).

When I discovered the baptism of Cozens Read and therefore his parents, I also discovered that Mary was born 1704 (baptised then at Caversham, Oxfordshire) and another sister before her.

7. iii. COZENS READ, b. 1706, Caversham, Berkshire; d. 1783, Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.
iv. RACHEL READ, b. Abt. 1707; d. 1803, Tiddington, Oxfordshire.

Notes for RACHEL READ:
I know from Rachel’s Will that she was unmarried and living in Tiddington, Oxfordshire. I know from details in the Will that she is Cozens Read’s sister and from that found some of their other siblings. When she made her Will, about 1802 or thereabouts, she mentions a nephew Edward living with her but at this stage I am not sure if this would be Cozens Read’s son Edward or Cozens Read’s brother John’s son Edward who later lives at Great Milton, Oxfordshire.

Rachel also mentions in her Will that her cousin Anne Cozens is living with her too. It appears from Anne Cozens’ Will that Edward the nephew of Rachel Read is still living with Anne Cozens after Rachel dies. I have also learned from Anne Cozens’ Will that the house (farm?) was called Brimstone House in Tiddington, Oxfordshire and have since learned that this is now a government experimental station!

As of 2008, I have not been able to find any record showing Brimstone House(Farm) or any map showing where it was in Tiddington. I have tried various spellings for Brimstone, and in some registers have seen mention of Brimpton and even looked for a House(Farm) with that name.

9. vi. WILLIAM READ, b. 1709; d. 1758, Great Haseley, Oxfordshire.

Generation No. 3

6. TYNEY3 READ (JOHNTININAY2, JOHN1) was born 1716 in Rotherfield Peppard, Oxfordshire. He married ELIZABETH RAINE 04 Jul 1744 in Old Church, St. Pancras, London.

Child of TYNEY READ and ELIZABETH RAINE is:
i. JOHN4 READ, b. 1744, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

7. COZENS3 READ (WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1706 in Caversham, Berkshire, and died 1783 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. He married ELIZABETH SHIRLEY 07 Nov 1734 in St. Mary’s Church, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, daughter of MICHAEL SHERLY and JANE ELLINGHAM. She was born 1713, and died 1786 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for COZENS READ:
At the time of his baptism in 1706, Cozens is shown as Coessens the dau of William and Elizabeth!! I have a photocopy of the page from the Caversham Parish Registers and at that time, there are mainly daughters being baptised. I think that the clerk just got used to writing dau and did it automatically with this entry. He also made an error just below the Coessens Read baptism entry, in which he states Sary the the of …. and so here he didn’t even say if she was a son or a dau!!

To be certain that there was not a daughter Coessens and then a son Cozens, I looked for a burial in many parish registers after 1706 for a daughter Coessens and did not find one. I had also checked over 300 parish registers in the search for the baptism and parents of Cozens Read and the only times I came across the name of Cozens Read was for his marriage and burial and a few other places which were quite obviously correct entries for Cozens Read (a gentleman) rather than Coessens Read (a lady).

So, at this stage (after searching for nearly ten years for his baptism and searching this Read family for about twenty years now) I am 99% satisfied that the Caversham Parish Register baptism entry for 1706 truly applies to my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read. (June 2008).

According to the Notes in the Rose Family Tree book dated 1905 and held at Eythrope Park Farm, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire and seen by me in April 2000 when we visited Mrs. Margaret Rose there, Cozens Read is stated as being “of the Marsh Farm, Lower Winchendon …”.

We visited this farm in April 2000 and were kindly shown around it by the then present owner Nrs. Grace Arnott and her family. The farm is actually dated from before 1650 and apparently the inhabitants had problems there during the Civil War, because the kitchen (which was originally the Dairy) still has bars against the windows which were to keep those inside safe from those outside during the Civil War!!

In a number of Wills, Cozens Read’s son Michael is described as being of The Marsh, Lower Winchendon or of Winchendon Marsh and we spent a lot of time searching for a little hamlet of Lower Winchendon called The Marsh or Winchendon Marsh, until we made the discovery in the Rose Family Tree book!!

Mrs. Arnott informed us that Marsh Farm is and never was called that. It is always and always was referred to as The Marsh and she told us also that this is pronounced as Mash because of the Buckinghamshire accent.

Notes for EDWARD READ:
I have a Will for Edward, which mentions his nephew John Lovegrove and his niece Betty Atkins. As these are the children of Betty Read, daughter of John Read and Elizabeth, it would seem that her children would be the nephew and niece of Betty’s brother. I know that she has a brother William, but so far have not found a baptism for Edward, a son of John Read and Elizabeth. So although I am assuming that this Edward is the brother of Betty Read, this has not yet been proved as at November 2008. I am placing him here so I know where to add details about him as I come across them, and hopefully at some stage I will be able to prove he is the brother to Betty Read.

Generation No. 4

10. WILLIAM4 READ (COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1736 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire, and died 1803 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. He married MARY POLLARD 07 Feb 1782 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. She was born 1742 in Oakley, Buckinghamshire, and died 1821 in Lower Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for WILLIAM READ:
I am not entirely sure that Mary Pollard is the wife of William or is maybe his second wife!! For this marriage he would have been about 46 years old. His son William born in 1761 means that he was born 21 years before William senr. married Mary Pollard.

From details given to me by others, it would seem that it is the William Read (William senr.’s son) born in 1761 who married Mary Pollard in 1782 and that William junr. and his wife Mary had the two children, Mary born 1783 and William born 1784. I really need to check this and if this is correct, then who did William senr. marry?

Children of WILLIAM READ and MARY POLLARD are:
i. MARY5 READ, b. 1783, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; d. 1850, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; m. JOHN MOORES, 08 Aug 1804, St. Mary Magdalene, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; b. 1783; d. 1855.
ii. WILLIAM READ, b. 1784, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire14; d. 1785, Lower Winchendon, Buckinghamshire15.

11. MARY4 READ (COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1739 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire16, and died 1785 in Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire17. She married WILLIAM ROSE 01 Oct 1766 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire18, son of JOHN ROSE and MARY ADAMS. He was born 1746, and died 1801 in Lane End, Buckinghamshire19.

Notes for WILLIAM ROSE:
William, of Waddesdon, was a Dairyman at Lane End, Waddesdon and a Farmer at “Winchindon” (Winchendon) in what is now called Eythrope Park Farm.

Children of MARY READ and WILLIAM ROSE are:
i. MARY (MOLLY)5 ROSE, b. 24 Jan 1765; m. JAMES PAGE20, 01 Oct 1798, Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire20.
ii. WILLIAM ROSE, b. 26 Mar 1770, Lane End, Buckinghamshire; d. 02 Mar 1825, Eythrope Park Farm, Lane End, Buckinghamshire; m. ELIZABETH READ; b. 177820; d. 1820, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire20.

Notes for WILLIAM ROSE:
According to the Rose Family Tree Notes held at Eythrope Park Farm and seen by me in April 2000, Eythrope Park Farm belonged to the Rose family for several generations and comprised of 200 acres according to the 1851 Census. The notes state: “According to the Will of William Rose who died there in 1825, he inherited it from his father, William Rose”.

William junr. (married to Elizabeth Read) left it to his eldest son William (father of Sarah who married Francis Cox), but after William (father of previously mentioned Sarah) married, he lived at Cranwell, where his father-in-law Henry Cox lived.

The property must have been sold for some reason as it is now part of the Rothschild estate.

William Cox of Denham Lodge became tenant there … but after his first wife died in 1865 he returned to Denham Lodge and his son, John Hughes Cox took over the tenancy. It then when back into the hands of the Rose family. John Rose, son of Michael Rose of Long Crendon and 2nd cousin of the above William Rose (father of Sarah) was the next tenant. Later, his son Herbert Rose took over the tenancy and farmed 1000 acres. After he retired, his nephew Anthony Rose became the tenant”.

William and his wife Elizabeth Read had nine other children besides William born 1803. One of my correspondents gave me this information and I will have to check who the other children are!! But it seems that only William out of the ten children, had children himself.

More About WILLIAM ROSE:
Burial: Mar 1825, St. Mary Magdalene, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire

Notes for ELIZABETH READ:
In the Rose Family Tree paperwork held at Eythrope Park Farm and seen by me in April 2000, the person collecting that information states that it was Miss Read (Mary) of The Marsh, Lower Winchendon who married William Rose and then mentions that William and his wife went on to have ten children born at Lane End, with only one (William) having issue. I have found and also been given the above info, but that William married Elizabeth Read (not Mary Read). Now, does that mean that Elizabeth was from The Marsh and the original collector of Rose info wrote down the wrong name, as William’s mother was Mary Read, or is Elizabeth Read from another branch of the Read family?

iii. JOHN ROSE, b. 1774, Eythrope Park Farm, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; d. 14 Nov 1844, Eythrope Park Farm, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; m. ELIZABETH PHILPOTS, 06 Apr 1800, Launton, Oxfordshire21; b. 1770; d. 11 Feb 1828, Ethrope Park Farm, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.
iv. ELIZABETH ROSE, b. 17 May 1775; m. ROBERT MAY, 10 Dec 1800, Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire.
v. THOMAS ROSE, b. 02 Apr 1777; d. 31 Oct 1857.

Notes for THOMAS ROSE:
According to the Rose Family Tree paperwork held at Eythrope Park Farm and seen by me in April 2000, “Thomas Rose, unmarried, lodged for many years at the Angel Inn in Kingsbury, Aylesbury, then one of the foremost hotels in the town but it has now been moribund from some years (1905)”.

vi. CATHERINE ROSE, b. 1778, Lane End, Buckinghamshire; d. 1853; m. JOHN COX, 09 Nov 1802, London22; b. 1773, Cranwell Farm, Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire22; d. 1847, Denham Lodge, Quainton, Buckinghamshire22.

Notes for CATHERINE ROSE:
After Catherine married John Cox, they lived at Denham Lodge, Quainton, Buckinghamshire and were the first of five generations to live there. (As at the 1960s) their descendants still live there. Catherine also appears to have the nickname “Kitty”. (From the Rose Family Tree paperwork, held at Eythrope Park Farm and seen by me in April 2000).

Notes for JOHN COX:
According to the paperwork with the Rose Family Tree held at Eythrope Park Farm and seen by me in April 2000, it states: “In 1818, John Cox, built the Baptist Chapel at Quainton. Inside the Chapel there are tablets on the walls to this family who are buried in the vaults beneath”.

vii. SARAH ROSE, b. 27 Oct 1780, Lower Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; d. Apr 1823, Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire; m. RICHARD READ, 06 Nov 1804, Oxford City, Oxford, Oxfordshire; b. St. Peter le Bailey, Oxford, Oxfordshire.

12. ROBERT4 READ (COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1740 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire23, and died 1799 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. He married MARY LEE 01 Oct 1767 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, daughter of JAMES LEE and PATIENCE. She was born 1740 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, and died 1828 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for ROBERT READ:
Robert is the son of Cozens Read who I am descended from.

He was a Tallow Chandler of Lower Winchendon, also a Grocer. He became a Victualler and bought a house, known as the Cross Tavern, near the market square in Aylesbury in 1772. This Tavern was still extant in 1900 as there is a photo showing it, which I have a copy of.

13. RACHAEL4 READ (COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1741 in Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire, and died 05 Nov 1818 in Walworth, Surrey. She married FRANCIS FARMBROUGH 21 Apr 1766 in St. Mary Magdalene, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire. He was born 28 Nov 1736 in Stone, Buckinghamshire, and died 26 Jan 1810 in Stone, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for FRANCIS FARMBROUGH:
In addition to the freehold estate in the parish of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire which he inherited under his father’s Will, Francis re-purchased another estate in Aylesbury (26 November 1782) which had formerly belonged to his ancestors and there he took up residence until his death.

Children of RACHAEL READ and FRANCIS FARMBROUGH are:
i. ELIZABETH5 FARMBROUGH, b. 25 Mar 1768, Stone, Buckinghamshire; d. 29 Mar 1847, Bierton, Buckinghamshire; m. JAMES COOPER, 28 Oct 1798, St. Mary’s, Newington, Surrey; b. 25 May 1777, Marylebone, Middlesex; d. 09 Apr 1859, Bierton, Buckinghamshire.
ii. WILLIAM FARMBROUGH, b. 15 Jul 1777, Stone, Buckinghamshire; d. 17 Jul 1854, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire; m. ANNA WATTS CHECKLEY, 13 May 1802, Lidlington, Bedfordshire; b. 11 Jul 1780, Lidlington, Bedfordshire; d. 29 Jan 1856, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for WILLIAM FARMBROUGH:
At some stage William occupied a farm at Whaddon Hill, Nr. Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire for some time. By 1905 the farm was in the occupation of Rowland Sare and the farm was much larger before 1905 (Notes from Rose Family Tree made in 1905 and held by Mrs. Margaret Rose of Eythrope Park Farm, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire, shown to me when I visited her in April 2000).

William and his wife moved from Pytchley in Northamptonshire to Caddington Bury in Bedfordshire in September 1810. This move was most disastrous from a financial point of view. Owing to the long-continued French war, corn was at famine prices, and William took on lease a large tract of wheat-growing land at a very high rental at and near Caddington. When peace was declared in 1815, wheat fell at once to a very low price, but the leases had to be worked out, and William estimated his loss of capital from this cause at between £8,000 and £10,000. When they moved to Caddington they had five children, of whom Elizabeth was then only four months old. Seventy years afterwards those five children were all alive and well, and three of them lived to pass the limit of fourscore years.

William inherited his father’s Aylesbury property and took up residence there until his death. At the time of the 1851 Census, William and his wife Anna were living in Castle Street, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire and he is shown as working as a Malster.

Notes for ANNA WATTS CHECKLEY:
According to the notes in the Rose Family Tree held at Eythrope Park Farm, Upper Winchendon, Buckinghamshire, made in 1905 it states: “It was recorded by her (Anna Watts Farmbrough nee Checkley’s daughter Caroline) that she paid one guinea a year for thirty years as a tax for wearing powder in her hair”.
