3. Sir Ralph de Coggeshall, Knight, was living 17 Henry 3, 1233, acquired Codham Hall Wethersfield, Essex, in 1294 (Fines, 22 Edward I), and died in 1305 (Inquest Post Mortem 33 Edward I). By his wife Elizabeth he had [John]. . . . Sir Roger, presumably the younger brother of Sir Ralph, was old enough in 1236 to sell his lands, thus making his birthdate no later than 1215 and Sir Ralph's 1213, which would have made Sir Ralph at least 81 when he acquired Codham Hall (and such estates were usually acquired by marriage to an heiress) and 92 or more when he died.
