Thomas Cosnight 1751 Elizabeth Collins 1757

Surname has MANY spellings:  Cosnight, Cossnet, Cosnite, Cosnit, Cossnitt, Cossnet, Cosnett

Note: I'm not 100% sure that these are the right people but the dates make them the best possibility right now - plus Birmingham is only 24 walking miles from Claines and from Claines to Worcester (where the children were born) is only 3 walking miles.

If they are correct, he'd be 31 she'd be 25 at time of marriage, so he may have been married before.

Of Concern: There are 3 years between 1st child and date of marriage and 7 years between the two children I was able to find. Perhaps they moved somewhere and returned or she had a hard time getting pregnant or the children died at birth etc.
