Cobb of Reculver Parish

St. Marys Church
St. Marys, Reculver Parish
Pictured is St. Marys Church in Reculver Parish. Reculver is a hamlet and coastal resort situated in southeast England, about 3 miles east of Herne Bay, in Kent, near the City of Canterbury. Afer the Romans left the area, Reculver retained its importance after the Romans left a fort there, a monastery was probably built over the ruins. During the Middle Ages the twin spires of the church became a landmark for mariners known as the "Twin Sisters", supposedly after daughters of Geoffrey St Clare.  John Cobbs of the Manor of Richard de OrGeorgianer in Romney Marsh, Kent, England, later became known as "Cobbs Court" (1324).  The family spent generations at "Cobbs Court" in county Kent, later owning Romney Marsh which was at Chislet in the Reculver Parish.  There is a long stream of Cobbs who were statesmen and men of influence in America.  Ambrose Cobbs, Jr.of Kent, England, came to Virginia where he died 1656 in York County. Ambrose Cobbs patented 350 acres of land on the Appomattox River in Virginia for himself, wife, Ann, and children.  An extensive genealogy is traced on the ancient Cobbs as well as those in America and is available to members of Virginia Pioneers
