He was the ninth of some thirteen or more children that blessesd the marriage of Rev. Richard Chaloner Cobbe AM and his wife Sarah Burslem. He was born on 30th Oct 1785 and baptised 31st October 1785 at St. Mary the Parish Church at Easton, Hants. These dates reinforce the belief that with few exceptions, their children were baptised within weeks, if not days of birth. Easton

At some point in his life, Marshall Godolphin Cobbe changed his name to William Marshall Godolphin Cobbe. This has, to some extent, complicated the search for information about his life. Bob O'Hara's

Their third child was a son, Charles Marshall Godolphin Cobbe baptised in 1821 at St. Pauls Deptford. Sadly Charles Marshall Godolphin Cobbe died at the age of only 15 years and was buried on the 5th January 1837, at St. Sepulchre in the City of London.  His address was Skinner Street which is not far due east of the present day London Metropolitan Archives. A family member, Sir Wolstan Dixie Bart (c1524-1594), Lord Mayor of London, President of Christ's Hospital and who endowed Emmanuel College, Cambridge, was Master of the Skinners Company. Of course, Marshall and his brother Thomas attended Christ's Hospital and used their consanguinity with Sir Wolstan to gain entry to Christ's Hospital. At that time Christ's Hospital was more or less opposite St. Sepulchre. Deptford Parish Records
