John Cobbs of Kent was recorded in the College of Heralds.
He was the son of one Henry Cobbe, who in 1258 acquired land
in the parish of Hope St. Mary, New Romney, Kent.
In 1324, John Cobbs had acquired possession of the manor of
one Richard de Organer. This manor became known as Cobbs
Court and remained in the family for many years.
It is now located near the village of Bonnington.
John was still living there in the 17th year of the reign of
King Edward II. It is believed he died there about 1325.
During his life he was awarded the title of Esquire, for having performed some unidentified service to the Crown. This title continued to be born by several generations of his direct male descendants.
