Who Are You?: The Romance of Your Name
The Romance of Your Name
Coats of arms
A newspaper article by Ruby Haskins Ellis, published in The Evening Star on March 21, 1935. The article chronicles the genealogy of the Coe surname, which likely dates back to John Coo I (b. 1340) in Essex, England. According to the article, Coo joined Sir John Hawkwood in his military campaigns in Italy. The Coe family of New England was established by Robert Coe (b.1596), eighth in descent from Coo. A clothmaker, Robert Coe joined the Puritans on the ship Francis during the Puritan emigration from England in 1634. First landing in Watertown, Massachusetts, Coe migrated to Wethersfield, Connecticut, the following year, and later to Long Island, New York, where he founded the town of Jamaica in 1658. Famous Coes in Florida include William Henry Coe (1824-1879), the founder of Glencoe, and his son, Captain Charles Henry Coe (1856-1954), author of Red Patriots: The Story of the Seminoles (1898).
