My understanding of the family folk lore is that a man by the name of St John escaped the French revolution by hiding in a cart of hay making its way over to England. When he got there he changed his name to 'Coward' Do not know how we can verify it.

I have heard that family story to, but I didn't know where it fitted in. I will ask my aunty if she has any paper work, as she is the one that told me.

Hi Kelly dont know if you are still using this site. George Henry Coward and Susannah Fieldes were my 2nd great grandparents. I can go back on Susannah's to her parents. There is quite alot of information on the family living in Nelson. If you have any further information I would love you hear from you.
