Philip Cottington of Leigh on Mendip first appears in records in 1562 when his will was published. He bequeathed lands at Leigh and Coleford to his widow, Margaret, and to his four sons, John, Philip, Edward and James. Philip was buried at Leigh on Mendip.
Philip Cottington, a wool merchant, left legacies “to every one of my weavers that do work for me 4d each” and monies to the poor of the parishes of Mells, Nunney, Coleford, Downhead, both Cranmores, and Stoke Lane (Stoke St Michael). One can, therefore assume that his workforce and their dependants encompassed all of these parishes, making him a considerable local employer.
There is little doubt that the Cottingtons built Great House Farm, a date stone on the gable end of this house, although partially illegible, appears to read EC 1596. It is probable that this house was improved by Philip’s son Edward after he had inherited it from his mother in 1588/9. Some fine tiles, decorated with a crown and arrow and bearing the latin inscription “Laus Die (Praise God), in the entrance hall, have been described as “Elizabethan” because they bear the letter “E”. On closer examination, it could be considered that this is a composite “EC” standing for Edward Cottington. The only connection with Queen Elizabeth is the fact that they fall within her reign. A blocked arch in the road side of this building appears to have the date stone 1598
Behind Great House Farm lies an interesting group of buildings connected to the adjoining field which runs down to the Halecombe Brook, a useful source of water for the washing of fleeces.
A building of note, which has been used as forge and carpenter’s shop in more recent times, was possibly used as a carding and dyeing shed in the Cottington era. Dye houses nearly always stood near a stream or river. This shed would have contained a copper furnace for heating the liquors and materials, wooden vats for the dyed wools, and possibly indigo grinding mills. Until 1784 there was such a dye house, owner Messrs Billingsley and Bowles, sited at Stoke St Michael. Tenter racks would have stood outside in the sun for stretching the woven wool as it was dried.
There was probably also a wool drying shed here, though no sign of this remains since later inhabitants built an extension to the house on this spot. Such a drying house would have been a circular tower like the existing round house in Frome.
Margaret (Margery) Cottington, of Leigh on Mendip, died in 1588/89, her will, dated 24th January 1585, left her “dwelling house at Leigh and lands in Leigh, Coleford and Kilmersdon” to her son Edward, whose marriage to Alice Webb in 1580 is recorded in the Parish registers. Alice died in 1599. Edward’s will was dated 1609.
Philip and Margaret’s daughter, Sylvester Dackombe, stated in her will dated 1st April 1595 that she was born in Leigh.
In 1585 the will of Anne Dackcombe of Steepleton, Dorset left bequests to “ my sister, Dorothy Hartgill; to William son of James Dackcombe and to my daughter Elizabeth Dackcombe …. the residue to my son James Dackcombe executor.”
Between the years 1558 and 1588 English troops were mustered to fight in Queen Elizabeth’s armies in Scotland and Spain. In 1569 Margaret Cottington supplied arms to the cause. In the certificate of musters dated 1569 the following were listed:
1 Corselet (body armour)
1 Harquebut (musket)
1 Bow and a sheaf of arrows.
1 Skull (helmet) The following men were provided:
William James (archer); John Rushden (pikeman); William Prattent (gunner); John Martin (billman). Four others in the parish, (Stephen Cabell, John Truckwell; Robert Norman and William Orenge), provided arms.

Margaret’s son, John Cottington, purchased land in Frome, Eggford and Nunney which, at his death in 1589, he left to his brother Edward, in trust for his (John’s) son, Henry, when he came of age. Philip purchased lands at Godminster, near Bruton, in 1569.

"In 1603 Hobbe's father was accused in the episcopal court of slandering Richard Jeane, the vicar of Foxley (a nearby parish), whom he had described as "a knave and an arrant knave and a drunken knave". Required to make a public act of penitence in Foxley church, Hobbe;s father failed to turn up for the occasion; fined 33s 3d, he failed to pay and was threatened (and eventually punished) with excommunication. In Februay 1604 he chanced on Jeane in the churchyard at Malmesbury, whereupon, in the words of a witness he "followed the said Mr. Jeanes revyling him and calling him knave and coming neare unto him strooke him the saide Mr. Jeane with his fiste under the eare or about the head." Any act of violence in a church or churchyard was an excommunicable offense, but laying violent hands on a clergyman was an even more serious crime in ecclasiastical law, for which corporal punishment was possible; and any excommunicated person who failed to seek absolution form the church could be arrested and imprisioned by the civil authorities after forty days. Hobbes's father "was forced to fly for it" and died "in obscurity beyound London." The Cambridge Companion to Hobbes edited by Tom Sorell, Cambridge University Press
Malmesbury, Wiltshire 1603, "Then there are the stories that reflect badly on the father. A clergyman of Westport angered the father at the church door, "so Hobbes struck him and was forced to fly for it and.......in obscurity beyond London, died there." There is more to the story. It began in October 1603, when the father was the defendant in a libel suit brought by another clergyman. The claim was that he had called Richard Jeane "a knave and an errand knave and a drunken knave and one that would have killed his brother minister Mr. Andrewes." The court found for Jeane, and Thomas senior was ordered to do public penance. He did not present himslef on the designated day but reportedly "carried himself contumaciously." Back in court, Jeane had Thomas senior declared "contumacious and........excommunicate accordingly." Thomas senior would not let bad enough alone. In February 1604, he confronted Jeane in a churchyard and accused him of instigating the excommunication. Jeane denied it and walked away. Thomas senior followed and swore at Jeane before punching him "with his fist under the ear or about the head and stroak off his hat and made him let fall his cloak from his ack all which the said Mr. Jeane suffered until the said Hobbes hanged about him and would not desist from striking the said Mr. Jeane and then he [Jeane] in his own defense stroke the said Thomas Hobbes and shaking him off from him threw him to the ground. Soon after this, the father left the area for the environs of London, as mentioned above." Hobbes: A Biography by Aloysius Marinich

Apr 26-7. 1759 (i) Robt. Hole of Burnham, clerk; (ii) Geo. Glasse of New Inn (co. Middx.), gent.; and (iii) John Evered of Bridgwater, gent., of: the hundred of Exon als. Exton; the manor of Quarum als. South Quarum; the rectory, advowson, etc. of Exton; the manor of Exton; the manor of Exton Parsons; and all appurtenances; formerly in the possession of William Blackford, Philip Darch, gents., Robt. Siderfin, esq., and wife Ann, and afterwards of John Jeanes, gent., grandfather of the sd. Robt. Hole. Also a messuage called Saunders, with 3 closes; a roofless tenement called The Claw and Bickhams, etc. in Exton. Also timber and woodland in Barlinch Wood in Kings Brompton

My thought is that Robert Jeanes who died 1694 must have inherited the New Inn land from his father and his brother John must have also held land there, in the same way. Robert left the land to Robert, son of John, who must have in turn left it to Philipa Jeanes Hole's children....

68. TO JOHN THORNTON1
For my much esteemed friend Mr John Thornton, These etc.

Good Sir,
I could hardly find time for this scrible, by reason of Dr Manton2 to whose company I cannot but elevate my selfe whiles hee is here. Newes we have none but whats evill. The Diurnall3 gives you a true (though malicious) account of the late petition, But conceiles the occasion, because it reflects much on the honor of the Lord Chancellor and another great person. For the Chancellor sent to Dr Manton etc. and asks them why they did not petition, telling them that the king thought they were sullen and had some designe in hand, assuring them also that the king would give an indulgence to Dr Manton, Dr Bates,4 and some few more; wherefore they petitioned in that forme that you read and yet were put off with a flay of a fox taile. So that the younkers in the house of commons are like to call them to barre for petitioning against an act of parliament, and then they must name the persons that encouraged and invited them thereto, and that will cause something to doe at court. Yet Mr Edward Russell5 says the next session of parliament will relieve us all. Credat Judius Apella. The tumults in London are nothing so bad as common fame represents them, though some disturbances the new preachers had by the boyes and by none else in three or four churches. I am somewhat troubled to heare that Mr Gurnall, Mr Ford, Dr Horton, Dr Lightfoot6 should conforme. But by his owne strength shall no man be strong. Mr Jeanes is reported to have conformed and presently to dye sadly and desperately. The Lord Booth is ragingly distracted; the Lord remember him for good. I hope the cryes of many 1000 soules in England for the bread of life will pierce the heavens (there being neere 2000 ejected ministers) and that God who hath now hid his face, will repent him of the evill. To which end the Lord purge away the iniquity of the daughter of Sion. The Duke of York would have had ..

2For Thomas Manton, the well-known Presbyterian, see C.R. and D.N.B.
3The Diurnall was a news-journal. The petition described in this journal was delivered to the king three days after St Bartholomew's Day 1662, but Lord Clarendon's advice proved hasty and the indulgence was not granted. The matter is discussed by R. S. Boshe , The Making of the Restoration Settlement. 1951, p. 144.

5Edward Russell was the son of Francis Russell (1593-1641), the fourth Earl of Bedford. See D.N.B.
6William Gurnall, Thomas Horton and John Lightfoot all conformed (see D.N.B. for details) but Stephen Ford was ejected from Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, for whom see C.R.

There is no recorded source of who John Janes who sailed and "became" a life long friend and constant companion of Captain John Davis, was, or where he came from.

I submit that this is the correct John Janes for the following reasons. Captain John Davis grew up and lived at Sandridge, in Devon, it appears, his intire life. Sandridge is a Manor, lying in Stokes Gabriel.

On his first voyage was John Janes, second, Philip Jane, third, John Janes..... In searching for records for a John or Philip, I find in Brixham and Churston Ferrers, Devon [these two places are 1 1/2 miles apart], records for John and Philip Janes, marriages, burials and births of their children. Churston Ferrers is about 4 miles from Stokes Gabriel. The books written about John Davis indicate that he lived close to the Gilbert family who were kin to Sir Walter Raliegh, who was involved in these voyages and that the Gilbert family "knowing" John Davis, is probably what influenced William Sanderson, who later married Raliegh's neice, to invest in the adventure.

Given the proximately of John and Philip Janes to John Davis, I would believe that these young men already knew each other and they too [at least John] could have had infleunce on William Sanderson's decision to invest.

There are several books that have included the journal that John Janes kept of their voyages, and there has been much speculation about the relationship of John Janes to William Sanderson, Merchant and apparently cheif financier of these voyages. John says he sent a letter to "uncle Sanderson". I have read that "there is no evidence of blood relation" between the two. I doubt that because in 1585, a merchant in the employ of someone as powerful and rich as William Sanderson was, would not send a letter to "uncle Sanderson" if indeed he were not his uncle. I don't think it would have been appropiate. I can find no relationship, but then again, William Sanderson was supposed to have married Margaret S___, Raliegh's neice and had several sons, including Raliegh, and Drake Sanderson. I have not found a christening record for them or his marriage record. I'm sure it is there, just in some parish who's records are not microfilmed.

I have no idea if William Sanderson had married a Janes or if a sister of his had married a Janes, but I believe the relationship existed.

John is listed on the ship's list at each sailing as either Merchant or Supercargo [An officer on a merchant ship who has charge of the cargo and its sale and purchase]. So there is no doubt that he worked for the company of William Sanderson

John Janes sailed with Captain John Davis at least three times, trying to find the Northwest passage and on an expedition to China.

WOOLAVINGTON
The capital messuage with c. 60 a. had been let to the Moore family by 1587 and it was bought by John Moore in 1703. (fn. 6) It descended to George Moore whose only child Mary left a daughter and heir Mary Smith who in 1752 mortgaged the farm to John Evered. The estate may have been forfeited as John Evered was in possession in 1767 and his family owned it until 1842 or later. The house was described in 1612 as ancient, 'something decayed', and had a herb garden. It was known as Everett's farm in 1885 and Elm Farm in the 20th century when it was divided. It is now known as Ash Cottage and Elm Tree Farm.
