The original copy is stored at the Family Search web site under the name Genealogie or pedigree of the Right Worshipfull and worthie Captaine Sir William Cole of the Castell of Eneskillen in the Countie of Firmanaugh in the Kingdome of Ireland Knight. In the book, the authors identify themselves as Sire WIlliam Segar, Garter, and William Penson, Lancaster. The original roll was written in 30 July 1630. Many documents were added to this roll and were privately printed all together in 1870. Segar's original document was prepared in the format of a family tree beginning with:

. . . . Roger COLE of the Countie of Devon (Cart 9 E. 2.) who married an unknown woman. They had a son named John COLE also of the Countye of Devon (Cart. 9 E 3 No 24). This John Cole had free Warren in Tamer Liddeston, Hokesbere, & Whitensleight Com. Devon (Cart 9 E. 3. No 24). . . .

Transcriber of Segar's Pedigree Roll of

Wm. Willoughby, the 1st Visct. Enniskillen, reduced it [Segar's Pedigree Roll of Sir William Cole of Firmanaugh] into a narrative form for the Rev. Mervyn Archball's edition of John Lodge's Irish Peerage (8┬░London, 1789); and his lordship's system and phraseology are here freely made use of, as they were also, though without acknowledgment, in Playfair's British Family Antiquity (fo. Lond. 1810).
The narrative form was subsequently augmented by other more recent material from gravestone inscriptions and other information and was published by ??? in 1897. Refer to Source 6 for more information

The Genealogy of the Family of Cole...of Devon by James EDWIN-COLE

In 1867, James EDWIN-COLE finished his updating of Segar's Pedigree Roll. His updates included many of the descendants of the persons mentioned in Segar's Pedigree Roll, persons known to him as of 1867. The format used by James EDWIN-COLE was the narrative form used by Sir William Willoughby Cole. The full title of the book published in 1867, by James EDWIN-COLE was "The Genealogy of the Family of Cole of the county of Devon and of those of its branches which settled in Suffolk, Hampshire, Surrey, Lincolnshire and Ireland". The webmaster abbreviates this full title to "Coles Of Devon".
