Lt. Col. Richard Chaloner Cobbe of Henry Hawley's Foot,
married Mary Godolphin Here - 23rd November 1726

Their Grandson, Marshall Godolphin Cobbe, Master RN
followed his brother Lt. Charles Cobbe RN., into the Navy.
After some 7 years at Christ's Hospital, he left into
the charge of his eldest brother, Richard Chaloner Clay,
and was apprenticed on 26th February 1800 to
Capt. Thomas Parr aboard HMS Zealand, as Mariner.

The feast of the Sons of the Clergy of 1799 paid for the apprenticeship
and Christ's Hospital gave him £5 Sterling. A tidy sum in those days.
He qualified as Master around 1810 and left the service 1816
to marry Elizabeth Catherine Hammond at South Mimms. By this time,
it seems, Marshall had become William Marshall Godolphin Cobbe.
Elizabeth's father was an eminent Edmonton Surgeon, Thomas Hammond,
who had the poetJohn Keats as apprentice for some five years.

Marshall & Elizabeth had three children:
Caroline Eliza Cobbe, (1817-1847), Frances Emily Cobbe, (1819-1898)
& Charles Marshall Godolphin Cobbe (1821-1836/7).

As Godolphin descendents, there was a strong connection with the
Godolphins Girls School, Salisbury.
Marshall died in 1825 and is buried at St. Paul's, Deptford
Elizabeth, Marshall's widow, also lived to 79 years and died late 1841 in Islington.
Full details of their lives are given elsewhere on this site.
