    Miles de Cogan

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Miles de Cogan (fl. 11701182) was an Anglo-Norman knight from Glamorgan who played a significant role in the Norman conquest of Ireland under Gilbert de Clare, 1st Earl of Pembroke (d.1148) Strongbow.

    In 1170 Miles was one of the knights who sailed in Strongbow's expedition of conquest to Ireland. He was appointed constable of Dublin Castle. On the invaders having become besieged in the city by the native Irish, Cogan led a sally outside the castle walls and defeated the besiegers, thus the siege was raised due to his distinguished action. In 1177 he was granted, jointly with Robert FitzStephen (d.1183), the Kingdom of Cork, to be held by the feudal tenure of 60 knight's fees.[
