Re: COCKCROFT, Ogden 1820 SC

I am not sure how how would obtain a copy--I have only seen a typescript done about 10 years ago--but Thomas Cockcroft did a will in 1747/48 naming his wife and children, including Ogden. Researchers at that time (ca 1999) cross-referenced the names with church christening records and determined the order of birth of Ogden and his 6 siblings. Ogden was youngest.
There was also around 1999 considerable internet conversation with Scott Cockcroft, who lived near Hebden Bridge and was quite familiar with the area and its history. That helped to connect the Cockcrofts and the Ogdens in the Heptonstall area.
Sorry I can not help you with actual documents, but that is the basis of identifying Ogden's father as Thomas Cockcroft of Crownest Farm, Erriington, in the Calder Valley, Yorkshire. See if the Cockcroft family genealogy website is any help.
