Gerald Cobley's Family History Site

Y Ddraig Goch

(Also includes some other local S. Wales Cobley families.)


I have been researching my family history on and off since about 1997. These are the results of my findings which I publish in the hope that they will aid others in their research and they in return could add to my own findings. Invariably there will be inaccuracies and omissions and I would welcome any contact that will help rectify these.

Since publishing these pages a number of other Cobley researchers who have turned out to be distant cousins have provided me with information on their descendants. I have also received information on other local Cobley families with links back to Pensford/Publow. Adding this information means the site is gradually becoming a record of the wider family and its spread throughout the world, also the start of a record of South Wales Cobleys. So any further contributions are most welcome.

Please note that information relating to living persons has been omitted unless they have personally agreed to publication.

Details of my paternal Cobley family living initially in Somerset and moving to Monmouthshire about 1825.
Details of my maternal Powell family from their roots in Herefordshire until grandfathers move to Glamorgan about 1890.
Details of other South Wales Cobley families with links back to Pensford/Publow. Probably related but not yet proven.
Links to other Cobley sites including this and other Cobley lineages.
