The following was copied from the Bob Coggeshall's website, 'The Coggeshalls In England', http://www.users.nyc.pipeline.com/~kiowa/eng.htm:
1. Sir Thomas de Coggeshall, Knight, of Coggeshall, Essex, the first of the name of record, was living in the 14th year of the reign of King Stephen, 1149, and had a son [Thomas]. Since the earliest record of the first Sir Thomas so designates him (i.e. as Sir, a knight). he must have been at least 21 years old at that time, thus making his birthdate no later than 1128.
