I am also a descendant of Cpt John Cockey.
Cpt. Cockey was born in 1680 in Broad Neck Hundred, Anne Arundel County. He settled in Baltimore County, where he married Elizabeth Slade. They had nine children;Susannah, Mary, William, Sarah, Thomas, John, Joshua, Edward and Peter.Both John and Peter died without issue. The other siblings, however, married throught the counties landed gentry.He was styled as Captain, but held not because of military service, but more because of his social position in the county. He also served as a county judge, and was one of the men who surveyed the boundary for Baltimore Town in 1745. Cpt. Cockey's will was probated by his eldest son, William, which divided his 1500 acres of estates to his living children. He was buried on the plantation in Green Spring Valley, and his wife was interred there as well.My ancestors are from Cpt. Cockey's second son, Thomas and his older brother Col. Thomas Cockey.
