      I have been doing more research on the internet and I found that Joseph Cockman who was born on 11-11-1743 [some sites say 1745] and died in Moore County NC in 1805 [ some sites say 1808] was born in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk England. Perhaps the records are not consistent because he was born in England and died in Moore County, USA.

      He was the son of JOHN COCKMAN (born 1707 in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England) who married MARY ROSE WATTS (born 1714 in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England). They married in 1730 in Mary in the Marsh, Norwich, Norfolk, England.

      I can not yet find anything on John Cockman's father and mother, but I may have found a resource in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England that will do historical research for free for me if I become a member of their Historical Society.

      I now know that the Cockman's came from Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England and I will see what more I can find out. I will keep you posted on what I discover. I will provide Internet Links to the websites that show this historical information.

      I was able to track Mary Rose Watts Cockman's parents. Her parents were Robert Watts (born 1678 in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England). He was christened 12 Jan 1678 in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England. He married Susan Tyler on November 30, 1708 in Swanton Abbot, Norfolk, England. Robert Watts parents were Richard Watts and Mary ??? Watts.
