Questionable issues surrounding Michael COLE and his son of the same name of the 17th century Irish Peerage:
1. The spouse of Catherine PARSONS differs in Source 1 (by James EDWIN-COLE) and Source 2 (by Howard COLE).
2. Which Michael COLE did Catherine PARSONS mary?
3. The spouse of Alice COOTE is shown as Michael COLE [14] b. 1616 in Source 1. This differs from that shown as Michael COLE [15] d. 11 Feb 1710 in Source 2.
4. Elizabeth COLE is shown to be marrying her first cousin named Sir Michael [15] COLE (-Feb 11, 1710) in both sources. Is this factual?
Many genealogy publications cite Source 1 written by James EDWIN-COLE in 1867. It is based on Source 6 initially prepared by Sir William Segar, Knt in 1630. An image of the relevant portions of Segar's "Pedegree... of COLE" can be seen below (from Source 7).

[13C] Sir WILLIAM COLE, only son of Emanuel, early in the reign of James I fixed his residence in the county of Fermanagh: 10 September, 1607, he was made Captain of the long boats and barges at Ballyshannon and Lough Earne by patent, pursuant to privy signet 15 May preceding, with the fee of 3s. 4d. a day for himself, and 8d. a piece for 10 men.

(who had undertaken to prosecute the war) by his success in other parts of the kingdom. And in January, 1643, when his regiment was in the utmost necessity for bread, and totally destitute of their pay, Sir William, in his great zeal for His Majesty's service, and preservation of the regiment, bought from Robert Thornton, esquire, 200 barrels of rye, at the rate of 30s. the barrel, for their maintenance ; but, notwithstanding his heavy private disbursements in this and other matters for the service of the State, he had long to await the repayment of his advances, as may be seen by referring to the Journals of the Houses of Lords and Commons.

Although Sir William was at this time advanced in years, he nevertheless (as has been stated) materially aided in the suppression of the rebellion; yet the signal services that he then, and on other occasions, rendered to his sovereign and his fellow citizens did not secure him from many representations by and much detraction from one less successful than himself, to whom he was the object of envy ; but the pamphlet,* which he published in refutation of those spiteful attacks, shows that he was as well able to use his pen as his sword. It is quaintly remarked in Moryson's Hist, of Ireland (8vo, Dublin, 1735) that "This Sir William Cole, is a Justice of the Peace and Quorum in the county of Fermanagh, and hath been thrice Sheriff of his county."-)- He married, first, Susanna, daughter and heiress to John Croft, of the county of Lancaster, esq., and relict of Stephen Segar, esq.. Lieutenant of the Castle of Dublin, and had issue : Mary, married to the Reverend Master John Barclay (or Berkeley); and Margaret, married to Sir James Montgomery,(double dagger)

(double dagger) This worthy had the epithet of "The Courteous Knight" from the British, and the same from the Irish, with the addition of "Noble." Dame Margaret, who was his second wife, died 1639, having had an only daughter born at Rosemount, and died in infancy.

Excerpt of the pedigree prepared by Sir William Segar

On page 10 of Source 8, Sir William Segar, the author, shows
"Sir William Cole Knight, Captaine and owner of the Castle of Eneskillyn in Ireland living 1630 = (i.e. married) Susan, da. and heire of John Croft, of the county of Lancaster, Relict of (Stephen) Segar, Lieutenant of the Castle of Dublin ......". Perhaps this Stephen Segar is an ancestor of Sir William Segar! The image below shows this portion of Segar's pedigree.

Segar's Family

Source 12, primarily about Jane Seager, also describes Segar's family as being:

Jane Seager was the daughter of Francis Segar, possibly a member of the Scriveners' Company and Anne Sherard. Jane was the sister of William Segar and Francis Segar. William became Garter King of Arms, and Francis served Maurice, Landgrave of Hesse-Marburg, as a gentleman of the bedchamber. Sometime after creating the book "The Divine Prophesies of the Ten Sibills", it appears that Jane married "Lionel Plumtree, a Russia Merchant." This may be the same Lionel Plumtree whose adventures in Russia were published in Richard Hakluyt's Principal Navigations. It is possible she became acquanted with Plumtree through her brother William. It is recorded that William was paid for decorating letters by James I and Queen Anne to be carried to Eastern princes by the merchants of the East India Company. This shows that he was well known by this time in the merchant community. It is also possible that the marriage was facilitated through Jane's stepfather, Nicholas Carleil, who had relatives listed as members of the Russia Company.

It is likely that Jane Seager's relationship with her brothers was professional as well as personal. She was trained in calligraphy and limning in her brothers' workship. Both William and Francis Segar were reputed as painters. William Segar was also famous for his calligraphy and limning. There are several extant examples of his work, including portraits of the Earl of Leicester, the Earl of Essex, Sir Francis Drake, and Queen Elizabeth. William Segar's 1581 Portrait of Sir Christopher Hatton (c. 1581) shows his virtuosity in calligraphy portraiture, and illustration as well as his ability to incorporate esoteric classical allusion in a pictorial scheme. His reputation as a calligrapher was so renowned that he was asked to judge a famous calligraphic contest between Peter Bales and Daniel Johnson, both teachers of calligraphy, in 1595. Several examples of William Segar's calligraphy exist, revealing the brother and sister shared a very similar calligraphic style; this is especially marked when one compares Jane Seager's gift book and a diptych presented to James I by William Segar. Thus the style and artistry of Jane Seager's gift book places her within the artistic milieu shared by her brothers. The Sibylline subject matter also places Jane Seager within the intellectual and political setting occupied by her brothers.

William Segar is reported to have been brought to the attention of the highest strata in late-sixteenth-century society through the partronage of Sir Thomas Heneage. He quickly advanced, receiving commissions for paintings from the young Robert Devereux the second Earl of Essex; Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester, Christopher Hatton; and other important couriers. Through the patronage of Heneage, William Segar joined the College of Arms, becoming Portcullis Pursuivant in 1585. In 1586 he accompanied Leicester to Utrecht for the festival of St. George. He was also one of the mourners at Sir Philip Sidney's funeral. William Segar's career continued to prosper with the College, and he was confirmed as Garter King at Arms in 1607, though he had taken on many of the duties of this post as early as 1603.

While William Segar (who would be knighted in 1616) worked to craft a career at the very heart of Elizabeth's and later James's courts, his brother Francis went abroad to seek advancement at the court of Maurice Landgrave of Hesse-Marburg, and worked as his agent carrying messages between the Landgrave and England. Both brothers participated in European diplomacy and were much esteemed. In a letter from Sir Raphe Winwood to Willliam Trumbull, dated January 29, 1612(3), Winwood describes the favor shown to the Segars by Maurice of Nassau, later Prince of Orange:
Maurice received the Order of the Garter, with the garter, which Garter King of Arms [William Segar] brought over with a commission to me to deliver it [....] the Ct. Maurice made us all a princely feast. He hath most honourably rewarded "Garter," whom he lodged and treated during his abode here and presented him with a chain and a medal of 3001. His brother [Francis] who belongeth to the Landgrave of Hessen, had a chain of 1001., his son one of 40.
Francis remained the Landgrave's agent in England until his death in 1615. William Segar personally delivered the news of his brother's death to the Landgrave and offered his son, James, as Francis's replacement. Through her brothers, Jane Seager would have had at least some entry into court circles and a reasonable expectation that her gift book would be delivered and accepted by Elizabeth. Seager would also have had some access, again through her brothers, to the artistic community surrounding the Queen, Francis Segar's autograph book reveals a large acquantance amongst artists as it contains autographs from Ben Jonson and Inigo Jones amongst others. William Segar was even more widely connected to this community and was counted the friend of Thomas Heywood and Henry Peacham, as well of as John Beaumont, John Stow, and John Davies. He was also acquanted with John Chapman . . . .
From Source 13, the Oxford National Biography, we read:

Segar, Francis, the younger (b. before 1564, d. 1615), courtier, was the son of Anne Sherard and Francis Seager (or Segar) of Devon, a poet and translator known for his School of Vertue (1557) and his verses on Richard III in William Baldwin's "A Mirror for Magistrates" (1563). Francis had a younger brother, Sir William Segar, who became Garter king of arms, and a sister, Jane, who authored "The divine prophesies of the ten sibills" (1589), a bound manuscript intended for Queen Elizabeth (BL, Add. MS 10037). Jane married Lionel Plumtree, who may have been connected to the Muscovy Company, and lived for a time in Russia (Frye, 102). William and Francis are named in Francis Meres's "Palladis tamia". Wits Treasury (1598) as contemporary painters in England (Meres, 287v). A number of paintings attributed to Segar survive, but it is unclear whether William was responsible for all of these or whether some were by Francis.

Little is known of Francis Segar's early life. A reference in the will of Richard Westerfield (dated 4 December 1565) to a house in St Benet Paul's Wharf, "then in the tenure of Francis Segar, citizen and scrivener", may be to the residence of Francis's father (TNA: PRO, 11/48/411v-413). The possibility is strengthened by the fact that two children of William (b. 1604)-who was a son of Sir William Segar and his second wife, Mary-were born at the College of Heralds and baptized at St Benet: Ann in 1623 and Francis in 1624. Moreover, Westerfield's will indicates that the Segar living in the "messuage" was a "citizen and scrivener"; Francis Nycholson, alias Seagar, father to Francis the elder, was made free of the Stationers' Company on 24 September 1557 (Arber, 1.69); and William Segar, Garter king of arms, was also trained as a scrivener.

Francis Segar was on a mission to England in 1615, carrying papers from the Landgrave, when he was stricken with the plague. In a letter to Moritz, dated 9 September that year (Hessisches Staatsarchiv Marburg, Best. 4 f England Nr 58), and another of the same date to Gaspar Muchio at the Landgrave's court (Hessisches Staatsarchiv Marburg, Best. 4 f England Nr 59; for a transcript of both letters see Spies, Francis Segar: Die erste Probe), William Segar reported that his brother had died.

Simon Segar the elder (d. 1684) was the great-nephew of Francis Segar the younger [see above] and the son of Thomas Segar (1607-1670) of St Giles-in-theFields, Middlesex, courtier and Bluemantle pursuivant of arms, whose own father was the herald Sir William Segar. Simon the elder entered Gray's Inn, London, on 22 September 1655. . . .

Simon Segar the younger (b. 1675, d. in or after 1715), author and genealogist, of the parish of St Andrew, Middlesex, matriculated at Pembroke College, Oxford, on 28 July 1690, at the age of fifteen. Like his father, Simon Segar the elder [see above], who died when he was nine, the younger Simon was interested in titles of honour and nobility. In 1711 he prepared a "Genealogia familiae Harlaeanae apud Gallos", a genealogy of the Harley family in France (BL, Add. MS 70080). On 18 December 1714, while in the employ of Sir Walter Calverley, he certified that he copied "divers ancient deeds & scripts & muniments relating to his [Calverley's] estates and family", creating a thick bound manuscript, in his own hand (BL, Add. MS 27412), and a vellum roll of "The genealogy and arms of the Calverley family" (BL, Add. MS 27414). The project took at least two years, as suggested by correspondence with Sir Walter, at Eshott near Bradford, Yorkshire, bound with the manuscript. Under the title "Aspidora Segariana" (1586-1633; BL, Add. MS 12225), the younger Simon collated the grants and confirmations of arms for which his great-grandfather Sir William Segar was responsible. His Honores Anglicani: or, Titles of Honour of the Temporal Nobility of the English Nation was published in 1712, reissued as Titles of Honour in 1720. He also wrote a mourning poem on Queen Mary entitled "Threno-Maria, a Rapsodicall Essay on the Death of Our Late Gratious Soveraign Queen Mary of Ever-Blessed Memory", published in 1695 in a memorial volume (Newberry Library, Chicago, Wing S2413).

The younger Simon Segar's interest in his own family history is reflected in an annotation in his copy of a fifteenth-century manuscript of the Brut Chronicle (Yale U., Beinecke L., MS 494):

This book was in the 3rd year of Edw. the 4th's time William Nasby's
but is now owned 1696 by Simon Segar son of Simon the son of Thomas
the son of Sr William Segar Knt Garter principall King at
arms (liveing temp Elizabeth Reg. & King James the first) the son of
Francis the son of Nicholas [cancelled word] by the daughter of ...
[Eleanor] Crasanthorpe the son of another Nicholas the son of
Gerrard etc. (ibid.)

He also recorded his genealogy in a note inscribed in the album amicorum of his great-great-uncle Francis Segar the younger [see above], for which both he and his father before him provided an index. Sadly, as a boy Simon tore out several pages from the album, later confessing to the deed: NB. There were several Other Autographs as appears by the first
Index (made by my father Simon Segar son of Thomas son of
Sr Wm Segar younger brother to Sr Francis) wch refers to the Pages divers of
wch were torne out by me Simon Segar (son of Simon Segar aforesaid)
when a Boy after my fathers decease ...

The date and place of the younger Simon's death are unknown. He was alive on 18 December 1714, when, at age forty, he certified that he copied materials relating to the Calverley family and estates.

In Source 14, Kirstey Inglis provides her understanding of Jane Seager's book named "The Divine Prophesies of the Ten Sibills" (and other authors' books). In her book, she explains how the prophesies of the ten sibills might pertain to Queen Elizabeth I. She also provides some notes about Jane Seager's family members.

From the above articles, the author of this article, David KC COLE, has created the following Descendancy of the Segar family

Chidley COOTE, father of Alice COOTE

Segar mentions Chidley COOTE of Killester County, but little more about him, except to mention his brother, Charles, the first Earl of Mountrath. Source 11 by Nick Reddan and others, in WikiTree, tells more. The parents of Alice nee Coote are Chidley (of Killester) Coote MP (b. c 1608- 19 Nov 1668) and Alice Philips (died c 16 Sep 1680). Nothing more is known about Alice Philips. The father of Chidley Coote MP is Charles Coote 1st Bt. MP (b c 1581). Charles Coote was the son of Nicholas Coote and Anne Cooper. A more complete Coote family tree (prepared by Nick Reddan) can be found in Source 10.

David Cole rearranged the following from "thepeerage.com", Source 2 by Howard Cole, into the format of the above descendancy from "ColesOfDevon" :

Segar's meaning of 20th February 1671-72 in the pedigree excerpt shown in the first image in this article.

August 1671 is before 20th February 1671/2. (See Note 4 which refers to Source 5). The author of Source 5 wrote:

BECAUSE ENGLAND had not yet adopted the Gregorian calendar (which it treated as a piece of popish superstition), it was ten days out of phase with the Continent before 1700, which England observed as a leap year, and eleven days out of phase after 28 February 1700. That is, 1 March in England was 11 March on the Continent before 1700 and 12 March beginning with 1700. I have not seen any advantage to this work in adopting the cumbersome notation 1/11 March and the like. Everywhere I have given dates as they were to the people involved, that is, English dates for those in England and Continental dates for those on the Continent, without any attempt to reduce the ones to the others. In the small number of cases where confusion might arise, I have included in parenthese O.S. (Old Style) for the Julian canendar and N.S. (New Style) for the Gregorian.

In England the new year began legally on 25 March. Some people adhered faithfully to legal practice; many wrote double years (e.g., 1671/2) during the period from 1 January to 25 March. Everywhere, except in quotations, I have given the year as though the new year began on 1 January.



The Peerage by Howard COLE perfectly reflects these 4 issues:
1. Only Susanna CROFT was married to Sir William of Fermanagh [13] COLE b. 1585.
2. Only Catherine PARSONS was married to Michael [14] COLE b. 1616.
3. Alice COOTE was married to Sir Michael [15] COLE. She was his first wife but all her children died young.
4. Elizabeth COLE was the daughter of John [14] COLE (-1691). She and her husband Sir Michael [15] COLE, indeed had the same grandfather, William (Sir; of Fermanagh) [13] COLE. Her son was John[16] of Florence-court COLE b. 1680 d. Jul 1726.

In Source 1, "Genealogy of the COLES ....." by James EDWIN-COLE, he made at least the following 2 errors when studying Source 6 by Segar:
A. When "=" appears below a man to separate him from the woman under the "=", James assumes that the woman is the wife of the person above the man. James may have assumed that an "=" indicates marriage only when a man's name is on the left and a woman's name is on the right of the "=".
B. James may have assumed that Alice Coote who lived until 24th Aug 1671 therefore could not have been married to Sir Michael [15] Cole who married Elizabeth Cole on 20th Feb 1671-2. This conclusion might result by ignoring the "-2" in the marriage date of "20th Feb 1671-2" which in those days was also written "20th Feb 1671/2". See Source 5, The Life of Isaac Newton (1642-1726/27).


The correct descent From Sir William COLE to Sir John [16] COLE of Florence is shown in the Revised Descendancy of "ColesOfDevon.ged" shown below from Source 8 (with corrections derived from Source 6) is:
